COLUMBIA, S.C. - The South Carolina Senate has agreed to let authorities use the electric chair to execute condemned prisoners if the state lacks the drugs needed for lethal injections. The Senate voted 26 to 12 Tuesday for the proposal, which now faces one more procedural vote before going to the House.
