Proposed Bill Would Ban Cheery Greeting

South Carolina state Reps. John Richard King (D) and Wendell Gilliard (D) say state employees shouldn't have to answer the phone with Gov. Nikki Haley's (R) mandated cheery greeting unless it's truly a great day in South Carolina, the AP reports.

They've filed legislation saying no state agency can force employees to answer the phone with, "It's a great day in South Carolina," as long as state unemployment is 5 percent or higher. Their bill also would prohibit requiring the greeting as long as all South Carolinians don't have health insurance.
