COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster is pressing forward with efforts to further restrict abortion. In his annual State of the State speech, the Republican governor said he will petition for a rehearing after the South Carolina Supreme Court recently struck down the state’s abortion ban. The address also featured calls to protect the identity of companies providing lethal injection drugs and pass a program giving tax dollars for lower-income students to afford private schools. In the Democratic response, Sen. Ronnie Sabb of Williamsburg sought an increased minimum wage and a public referendum on abortion. Sabb also called for a hate crime law after efforts stalled last year.
