State Senate President Pro Tem Glenn McConnell and other members of the Senate's new Fiscal Fitness Subcommittee will hold a public hearing from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday in the North Charleston City Council chambers.

The bipartisan panel hopes to hear comments about its work. The senators also hope to craft a package of bills that the Legislature would consider next year to put the state on sounder financial footing.

Among the proposals being considered are a constitutional cap on spending and a new commission to prioritize where the money goes and to block agencies from running deficits.

For more information, call 803-212-6408 or 803-212-6308 or visit Fiscal Fitness Subcommittee.
