South Carolina – Upstate Leaders Introduce Bill That Would Remove Sales Tax For School Security Purchases

School security has changed drastically in the past several decades, and those changes have come with a price tag. Radio equipment, lock systems and security cameras can cost schools a hefty sum.

The exemption would extend to items such as medical response equipment, digital security, and surveillance systems for all schools in the state, including private schools, charter schools and colleges.
