S.C. lawmakers file bill to cut SCANA customers’ bill 18 percent and throw out its regulators

A group of South Carolina lawmakers wants to roll back billions of dollars of electric rate increases and throw out three groups that oversaw the state’s failed effort to build nuclear reactors near Columbia.

Those are among the proposals floated Thursday by House Speaker Jay Lucas as part of a sweeping reform package that will be considered next year.

They represent some of the first concrete steps the Legislature could take after the $9 billion expansion of the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station was abandoned this summer.
