Greg Duckworth is the Representative for District 104 in South Carolina (SC).
A Representative is a member of the SC House of Representatives, one of the two bodies of the SC Legislature – a group of elected citizens who work to create the laws of our state. The other body of the SC Legislature is the Senate, and Greg Hembree is the SC State Senator for the people living in District 104. The House of Representatives has 124 members, and the Senate has 46 members. Together, the SC House of Representatives and the SC Senate are called the SC Legislature and are also known as the General Assembly. The General Assembly meets from January through June of each year to work to make new laws, change old laws, and study what outcome laws will have on the people in their district. The citizens of SC vote everyone in the Legislature into office according to the area of the state in which they live; this area is known as a district. Each member of the Legislature must live in the district that he or she represents to make sure he or she is familiar with the people and needs of their district.
