Organized Retail Crime Bill Passed in South Carolina!

SCRA’s multi‐year effort to strengthen the state’s shoplifting laws has finally come to a successful end! In a last‐minute deal, the conference report was adopted by the Senate (44‐0) and by the House (89‐0). The final conference report reinstates the “stolen goods” provision that the House stripped out of the original bill.

Thank you to the number of SCRA members that helped us to pass this priority legislation. Huge victory for SCRA!
