What Will Happen to CON Law in South Carolina?

The South Carolina Supreme Court recently ruled, despite lack of funding, the state's certificate of need program remains in place. What will happen to the program now?

South Carolina Senator Thomas Alexander (R-Oconee), chairman of the Senate budget subcommittee in charge of the Department of Health and Environmental Control, intends to restore the program's funding by July 1, according to an Aiken Standard report.

Senator Harvey Peeler (R-Cherokee) is sponsoring a bill that aims to reform the law by requiring the loser of a certificate of need appeal to pay the winner's legal fees.
