CONGRESSWOMAN NANCY MACE’S DEBUT LEGISLATION REVEALS MISPLACED PRIORITIES

 

Columbia, S.C.— Freshman Congresswoman Nancy Mace’s (SC-01) legislative debut isn’t fixing the Palmetto State’s dismal ranking in education.  South Carolina is currently 42nd in education, with the percentage of college graduates hovering just below 40%.  Instead, Mace has joined forces with Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), to disenfranchise the students and parents of the District of Columbia. They are authoring a bill designed to repeal District of Columbia regulations on education requirements for staff at child development facilities.

Blasted for her meddling by DC Congresswoman, Eleanor Norton Holmes, in a recent press release, Mace additionally has voted against The George Floyd Justice in Policing Act and COVID-19 relief. This act would help South Carolina municipalities and families who have been impacted by the virus. Mace has also attacked New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, while fundraising off of the January 6th insurrection.

“South Carolina has big problems in our state, that Congresswoman Mace could be doing more to fix,” said SCDP Chairman Trav Robertson, Jr. “ I agree with Congresswoman Holmes, because it is truly astonishing that Nancy Mace has decided her first-ever bill in Congress would address a purely local D.C. matter instead of focusing on the many infrastructure and educational needs of the voters in her district.”
