How does Rex vote?

CORONAVIRUS CORRUPTION (H.3707 - 2021)

Voted NO

A bill to send an extra $60 MILLION to the notoriously corrupt and incompetent Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) to “combat” the Chinese coronavirus – including PPE, vaccines, etc.

PUTTING NEW JERSEY STYLE TOLLS ON OUR ROADS (H.4000 - 2019)

Voted NO

A budget provision to put New Jersey style tolls on Interstate 95. Money collected at tolls could have been funneled to corrupt Hugh Leatherman's slush fund (the State Infrastructure Bank) for pet projects.

TAX GIVEAWAY TO LIBERAL BILLIONAIRE OWNER OF NFL PANTHERS (H.4243 - 2019)

Voted NO

While we pay the highest income taxes in the Southeast, this bill gave massive tax breaks to the liberal billionaire owner of NFL Panthers. Shortly after the vote, state politicians also agreed to build him a brand-new $80 million road leading to his practice field. The trend continues: massive tax-breaks and unfair giveaways to out-of-state corporations, small businesses continue to pay high taxes.

A MOTION TO KILL AN AMENDMENT TO DEFINE LIFE AS BEGINNING AT CONCEPTION (2019)

Voted NO

A motion to kill an amendment that would have defined life as beginning at conception and effectively ended all abortions in South Carolina.

GAS TAX HIKE (H.3516 - 2017)

Voted NO

The largest gas tax hike in state history. Years later, we’re paying more at the pump, but legislators are still funneling our money to their pet projects and our roads are still crumbling. Legislators and the Governor appoint and control SCDOT. Regardless of how they voted on the gas tax hike, your state politicians are responsible for the condition of your roads

Legislative delegations skirting state open-meetings law

- The Nerve (7/14/21)

"Rice said the delegation might meet 'from time to time' in Columbia, though he added, 'I don’t even remember the last time we had a called meeting down there, so it’s been a long time'.”
