Clothesline bill hung out to dry : News-Record.com : Greensboro & the Triad's most trusted source for local news and analysis: "Back during crossover (click here), Rep. Pricey Harrison, a Greensboro Democrat, got a little bill (H 1353) through the House that would prohibit cities and counties from adopting blanket prohibitions on clotheslines.
The idea, according to Harrison, is to allow people who want to save energy by hanging out their laundry (rather than use their dryers) even if some folks in the community turn up their nose at the idea. Originally, the bill started out as an effort to keep homeowners associations from adopting restrictive covenants prohibiting clotheslines, but Harrison took that out of the bill after getting a lot of resistance.

So the bill came before the Senate Commerce Committee today … and it was doomed."
So, it is fair game on clotheslines in South Carolina.
