COLUMBIA The South Carolina Senate tentatively approved a bill Thursday to change how people file their paperwork to become candidates.

The bill still needs one more vote before it goes to the House, which is considering its own solution.

The proposal may also get tweaked more in the Senate before it comes up for final approval. Sen. Larry Martin, R-Pickens, said supporters wanted to pass something quickly to show senators were determined to fix problems that led to 250 candidates being kicked off primary ballots last year.
