COLUMBIA, S.C. - This week's snow and ice storm that again brought South Carolina to a standstill is delaying action on a snow-days bill stemming from the last bout of wintry weather.
 
Senate President Pro Tem John Courson said Thursday the Senate will take up a measure next week that allows school boards to forgive up to five days of classes canceled because of severe weather.
 
The House passed the bill 95-0 last week, following the last wintry mix that canceled classes for several days. The Senate intended to discuss it this week, when Mother Nature struck again, this time more harshly.
 
Courson says the Senate may amend the legislation to allow districts to forgive more days. He says a decision on whether to make up days should be up to local leaders.
