Share Your Experience!

The South Carolina House Legislative Oversight Committee (HLOC) is currently conducting its reviews of several state agencies, including the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA). The mission of the committee is to “Determine if agency laws and programs are being implemented and carried out in accordance with the intent of the General Assembly and whether they should be continued, curtailed or eliminated. Inform the public about state agencies.” In more simple terms, are we doing what we are supposed to be doing as a state agency? Well, the committee wants to hear from you!

If you have had positive experiences with the Department of Consumer Affairs, please share your story with the HLOC.
