Film incentives

Campbell sponsored a bill that will increase taxpayer-funded film incentives to organizations working in South Carolina. On February 26, 2013 the South Carolina Senate Finance Committee passed legislation that would increase incentives to film companies to work in South Carolina. The bill then went on to pass the Senate and the House, with several amendments, before it was signed by the governor.[1]

Prior to the new law, South Carolina offered a 15 percent rebate to film companies on spending and wages in South Carolina. Under the new law, that level will increase to 30 percent for supplies and 20 percent for wages (25 percent for a South Carolina resident). The rebate is only available if a company spends more than $1 million.[2]

Scorecards

The Palmetto Liberty PAC Scorecard

See also: The Palmetto Liberty Political Action Committee's Legislative Score Card

The Palmetto Liberty Political Action Committee, a conservative pro-limited government think tank in South Carolina, releases its Scorecard for South Carolina Representatives and Senators once a year. The Scorecard gives each a legislator a score based on how they voted in the two-year legislative term prior to the election on specific issues which the Palametto Liberty PAC thought were anti-limited government. "Most of the votes shown on the score card are votes that we lost. Now we can identify the Legislators that caused us to lose these votes. These Legislators are the ones who need to be replaced if we are to achieve the vision of having the most free state in the nation."[10]

2012

Ralph Anderson received a score of 0% in the 2012 score card, ranking 42nd out of all 46 South Carolina Senate members.[11] His score was followed by Senators Paul Campbell (0%), Creighton B. Coleman (0%), and Dick Elliott (0%).[12]
