Welcome to the heart of our state's legislative process: the House of Representatives. The House is often called the "People's House", as it stands as the part of our government closest to its constituency. Our work here is guided by a deep sense of responsibility to the people we serve.

As Speaker of the House, I am honored to lead a dedicated group of legislators who work tirelessly on behalf of the people they represent to shape policy, pass meaningful legislation, and drive positive change. We understand the impact our decisions have on the lives of every South Carolinian, and we take that responsibility seriously.

Thank you for your trust in our leadership, and we are confident that together we are building a bright future for South Carolina.

Murrell Smith
