U.S. Military Service Academy Nominees

It is such an honor and privilege to nominate some of our state’s future leaders to our country’s military service academies. For me, this is one of the best parts of my job. Each year, I look forward to taking the opportunity to review hundreds of applications from young people who have the passion and willingness to serve our country.

My office received applications from so many impressive students from every part of the state, and I am confident they will go to their respective service academies and represent our state and country well. To review the full list of nominees, click



Lowering Energy Prices for Americans

South Carolina is leading the nation as a first mover in building an advanced nuclear power facility that helps our energy sector to meet the needs and challenges of our state’s 21st century manufacturing economy. Last week, I introduced


with bipartisan support that corrects an inefficiency in the United States tax code to allow more effective use of the nuclear production tax credit (PTC) to lower energy prices for consumers.

Additionally, the legislation mitigates the risk public-private partnerships incur when involved in the construction of first-in-a-generation nuclear power facilities. If passed, this could help lower energy prices for millions of Americans.

Supporting New Leadership

Last week, I voted in support of former

U.S. Senator Dan Coats for Director of National Intelligence


Ms. Seema Verma for Administrator, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

. Both nominees have proven that they have an aptitude for their new roles and I look forward to working with them in the future.
