COLUMBIA, South Carolina: South Carolina's Legislative session ended on June 3, 2010, effectively killing many bills and leaving them for re-introduction and debate for next year's session. Two ballot measures were approved for the November 2, 2010, as both were legislatively-referred constitutional amendments. One measure will allow voters to decide on the right to hunt and fish in the state. The other measure slated to be on the ballot will ask voters whether or not secret ballots are fundamental rights in determining if workers are represented by a specific labor organization.[1]

At least five statewide ballot measures had been proposed as legislatively-referred constitutional amendments in session. One that will not be on the ballot would have allowed charitable raffles legal in the state. Multiple proposals had been placed in front of legislature during session and had been sent to separate House committees for review.[2]
