Some Seeking Exceptions Or Repeal Of Heritage Act

(Columbia, SC) -- South Carolina lawmakers could soon be considering exceptions to or the complete repeal of the Heritage Act. 

The 2000 law prevents changing the name of a public building or removing a monument without receiving a two-thirds vote from the General Assembly. 

Now several college campuses want to change the names of buildings. 

Clemson University and the University of South Carolina are both trying to change the names of buildings that were named after former Governor Benjamin Tilman and scientist J. Marion Sims.
