COLUMBIA, S.C. — Urged by law enforcement leaders, state lawmakers on Thursday moved a step closer to allowing police to search people on probation and parole without a warrant.

A subcommittee sent the bill to allow the warrantless searches to the full House Judiciary Committee and put it on track for a showdown on the chamber floor. The proposed law is aimed at protecting the public from career criminals.
