In an unprecedented move last week, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley's budget vetoes put more than 38 jobs in jeopardy and shut down two agencies.
The S.C. Arts Commission is closed after the first-term governor's cuts eliminated $1.9 million in state-level funding and $500,000 in funding earmarked for grants.
Democrats spoke out on Monday against the governor's cuts, which also eliminated the budget for the Sea Grant Consortium and cut teacher raises.
Haley slashed these same two agencies last year, but the Legislature overrode those vetoes.
The Legislature will reassemble on July 17 to consider overriding other budget vetoes for the next fiscal year. What do you think the Legislature should do? Should the Legislature override the governor's veto? Should taxpayer dollars be used to fund local arts initiatives?
