Before testifying to a S.C. House Committee on Child Custody Orders concerning equal and shared parenting rights yesterday, John Gallman and Representative Stewart Jones met with us in our studios this past week.
The current S.C. House bill is sponsored by Republican Stewart Jones, Laurens, S.C. The bill has 62 cosponsors and will easily pass the House of Representatives in 2023.
It will then land in the Senate Judiciary, where (without public pressure) Horry County Republican Senator Luke Rankin could let it die in committee, never getting a full senate vote.
Gallman sparred yesterday with Rankin’s key supporters and campaign donors, the Trial Lawyers Association.
In riveting “must see” testimony, in the video top – of page here, Gallman came prepared and dismantled the trial lawyers opposition to Bill H. 3569
The video above is 51 minutes long, but worth the watch. It’s better than the Kardashians for sure.
We left it unedited for our readers.
Jeff Younger of Texas, who does statistical analysis for banking firms, says Younger’s story was the catalyst for a movement that was previously without direction.
“I believe I was the tip of the spear,” the 56-year-old Flower Mound resident said in an interview with The Texas Tribune.
Younger told MyrtleBeachSC News earlier this week, “I’m talking with Pres. Donald Trump tomorrow about a child’s right to love and be with both parents equally. While that is exciting for me, I’m even more pleased that John Gallman is presenting a bill in South Carolina to protect a child’s right to both parents. Action at the state level will make the difference for kids. John Gallman is leading the way for a movement in the state governments to protect children. He’s a champion for kids. I fully support his efforts.”–
Gallman, himself, chose to be in Columbia, S.C. in lieu of joining Younger in Florida.
