The South Carolina General Assembly reconvened yesterday for the 2010 session. State budget cuts, economic development, reforming the Employment Security Commission and, once and for all, censuring the governor top our legislator’s priority list. Most legislative initiatives considered at the State House have the potential to impact you, your family and your business.
For the CPA profession SCACPA is monitoring the deliberations of the Tax Realignment Commission, keeping an eye on legislation that will change state regulations for the way you practice (available on www.scacpa.org), seeking early federal-state tax conformity and leading discussions about reform of the SC Labor Licensing and Regulation agency.
With all these issues looming out there you can rest assured that SCACPA’s team is keeping a watchful eye on your behalf. But the voice of the CPA is by far the most important and impactful in the legislative process. Given the state of our state, it’s more important than ever — and so is participating in SCACPA’s annual CPA Day at the State House slated for April 28. Save the date.
CPAs have the ability — I’d go so far as to call it a responsibility — to get involved legislatively this year. Lawmakers need guidance as they try to fix the state’s problem — they need to hear your voice. CPAs can provide that guidance. Get involved now.
