The great storm of 2014 gave everyone a good chance to be thankful for the linemen with our utilities around the state who have been working through the bad weather to get the power back on. The state's 21 public power utilities have been sharing resources to send help where it's needed.
The storm also meant little activity in the General Assembly this week. The House had a scheduled furlough and the Senate didn't meet because of the storm. This week's From the Dome to Your Home outlines two budget provisos passed by a Ways and Means subcommittee this week that affect cities and towns. Look for a slammed committee schedule next week.
The workshop for local government reporters hosted by the Municipal Association, the SC Press Association and the SC Broadcasters Association scheduled for Feb. 13 had to be postponed until April 24 because of the storm. Check out the SCPA site for details.
