COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The South Carolina House on Wednesday approved a bill designed to shore up the state's retirement system, requiring all public employees to contribute more toward their retirement and new hires to work longer.
The House voted 86-27 on a bill legislators said is necessary to ensure workers get their benefit checks decades from now. It requires another perfunctory vote in the House before heading over to the Senate.
