H.3659 SC Energy Freedom Act (Third Reading in Senate)
Senator Tom Davis had introduced the Senate companion bill (S.332) early in the 2019 session. Conversations surrounding S.332 had laid the foundation for quick consideration of the House version of the Energy Freedom Act by the Senate Judiciary Committee. After further negotiations and debate in the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Senate passed H.3659 with a unanimous vote 46-0, and the House concurred with changes.
- This is a Pro-Conservation Bill.
