Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. In South Carolina lawmakers are looking into repealing the state's Subversive Activities Registration Act. The law dates back to the Red Scare of the McCarthy Era. It requires any group that advocates overthrowing the U.S. government to register with state officials. Some worried it could be used against conservative activists today. No one had actually registered until last month when word of the law made the news. About 10 groups have filed as a joke.
