SC Legislature not meeting because of weather

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The South Carolina Legislature will not meet this week because of a winter storm forecast for the Carolinas.

House Speaker Bobby Harrell and Senate President Pro Tem John Courson announced Monday that the session and all legislative meetings are canceled for their chambers.

The Legislature will resume under its normal Tuesday-through-Thursday schedule next week.

Forecasters say a winter storm could bring up to 8 inches of snow as it moves across the Carolinas this week.

The National Weather Service in Columbia has forecast snow and sleet accumulations of 2 to 5 inches in the South Carolina Midlands.
