In the 2011-2012 legislative session, McCoy served on the following committees:
- Subcommittee on Criminal Laws
McCoy has been rumored to be a potential candidate to fill Tim Scott's U.S. House of Representatives seat. The election will be held to fill the vacancy left by the appointment of Scott to the United States Senate. South Carolina law dictates that a primary election to fill a vacancy to the U.S. House must be held on the 11th Tuesday after the vacancy occurs, with the general election being held 18 weeks after the vacancy. Based on what U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R) has said regarding his departure from the U.S. Senate, the primary would be held sometime in late March with the general election in May.
