COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina legislators are scurrying to push measures through in the last regular week of the session.
Priority items still under debate include pension reform and government restructuring. Conference committees of House and Senate members are trying to iron out differences in the dueling versions of those bills.
The House is expected to take up the Senate's proposed budget for 2012-13 either Tuesday or Wednesday. The House approved its plan in March, before state economic advisers revised revenue projections, giving the Senate nearly $300 million more to designate.
The House will amend the budget with its own plan for the money, setting the budget up for conference committee.
The regular session ends at 5 p.m. Thursday. But legislators have approved a short special session to deal with conference committee work.
