COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina senators have ended their week debating a bill that would require refugees to enroll with the state.

Senators on Thursday finished a second day talking about the bill that would require all refugees to register with the state. The bill would also hold sponsors of refugees liable for damages if the people they help come to the United States commit terrorism.

A third requirement that no state money be spent for refugees is a sticking point. Bill sponsor Republican Sen. Kevin Bryant of Anderson says he’s willing to talk about amendments to allow children of refugees to go to public school.

Bryant says he supports another amendment that would prevent the list of refugees in the state from being made public.
