South Carolina tries to get new Panthers practice facility

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) South Carolina wants the Carolina Panthers to move their practice facility into their state's suburbs. But there is at least one big hurdle - football players don't practice enough hours to be considered full-time employees in the state, so South Carolina can't offer the Panthers tax credits and other incentives.

Gov. Henry McMaster and legislative leaders said Wednesday they will push for a bill to exempt football players from the rule.

McMaster and a number of top state officials and lawmakers met with Panthers owner David Tepper at the South Carolina Governor's Mansion and Tepper said he was very interested in what South Carolina had to offer, McMaster said.
