Hewitt named Legislator of the Year by the SC REALTORS
By: Garden City Realty
Rep. Lee Hewitt, R-Georgetown, is the first freshman legislator to ever win this award. "I'm honored to have been awarded Legislator of the Year, particularly as a freshman legislator,"
Hewitt was the lead sponsor for legislation signed into law this year that reforms the process for determining beachfront jurisdictional lines. Where these lines are drawn impacts first, and in many cases, second-row properties regarding the structures that can be built or rebuilt.
Likewise, Hewitt was a cosponsor of the South Carolina Homeowners Association Act, which was also signed into law this year. This reform legislation requires increased HOA transparency concerning notices, budgets and documents.
Hewitt, a Murrells Inlet REALTOR, serves on the House Agricultural, Natural Resources and Environmental Affairs Committee and Environmental Affairs Subcommittee, Opioid Abuse Prevention Study Committee and Offshore Drilling Ad-Hoc Committee.
He is also a former S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control board member.
