Marching band could soon serve as PE credit if state lawmakers agree

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - South Carolina students could soon be able to count marching band as a physical education credit if state lawmakers have their way this session.

The bill was introduced by Sen. Vincent Sheheen and Sen. Sean Bennett at the beginning of the session.

It easily passed the Senate 43-0 and was sent to the House.
