Over the course of my campaign, ensuring, our veterans receive the care they deserve is an issue I have taken close to heart. Hearing the stories of numerous veterans across the state instilled an enormous amount of respect for those who willingly volunteer their lives towards the continuation of our liberties and way of life, while stressing the moral obligation, we have to guarantee their access to the highest-quality of services.Read more ›

Attorney General Alan Wilson Joins Governors, Fellow AG’s in Wanting “Waters of the U. S.” Proposal Withdrawn
(COLUMBIA, S.C.) Attorney General Alan Wilson joined with sixteen governors and attorneys general in asking the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) to withdraw their proposed “Waters of the U.S.” rule.
On April 21, 2014, the EPA and Corps jointly released a proposed rule called Definition of Waters of the U.S. Under the Clean Water Act. It would greatly expand the definition of waters that fall under federal jurisdiction. Under the proposal, roadside ditches, small creeks, farm ponds, flood control channels, drainage conveyances and storm water systems would be subject to federal regulation. That, in turn, would impose new hardships on county governments, farmers, developers and small businesses.Read more ›

“I have said all along that I have never intentionally violated any law, and I still strongly believe that statement to be accurate.
“In no way have I ever benefited personally or financially from travel reimbursements from my campaign account. In fact, I have regularly used the privately raised funds from my campaign account to pay for official state travel instead of passing that cost along to taxpayers. Similarly, I have often used my own airplane, at no cost to the taxpayers, for official state travel when it would have been completely justifiable to have used the taxpayer-funded state plane instead. If over the course of four years, I mistakenly wrote down the wrong date on a handful of items, that is something that can easily be addressed.”Read more ›
