COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

In response to the decision made Monday by SCANA and Santee Cooper, a South Carolina Energy Caucus was formed. The group held a news conference Wednesday morning, saying it is a bipartisan group "coming together to push for energy reforms."

"You deserve better," Representative James Smith (District 72) told the dozens of laid off employees attending the news conference. 

The group promised better accountability for infrastructure and utility projects such as this. 

"We have no plan for lower-carbon energy going forward," said Representative Kirkman Finlay, who represents House District 75 in Richland County. "We will never do this again."

"The public trust is gone," said Representative Micah Caskey, who represents House District 89 in Lexington County. "It is absolutely gone. . . People need to be fired. This is not okay."
