Lawmakers rallying behind the Tucker Hipps Transparency Act

South Carolina News

Lawmakers are once again rallying behind the Tucker Hipps Transparency Act.

It’s set to expire in June.

The act requires organizations at public colleges and universities in South Carolina report all violations including alcohol, sexual assault, and hazing.

That data must then be posted online and made available to parents and students.

Lawmakers say the bill creates a necessary level of oversight.

The Transparency Act is named for Clemson student Tucker Hipps.

A wrongful death lawsuit says, he fell to his death after being forced to walk along a narrow bridge while pledging a fraternity.
