And today, he’s Tweeting about lawmakers rapidly working their way through Nikki Haley’s vetoes. Eventually, he put it all together on thestate.com. (That is, he put together what they’d done so far. They appear to still be going.) An excerpt:
The House voted to override Haley’s veto of $56 million for K-12 education by a 97-8 margin. Members of the Republican-controlled House then voted 103-6 to restore $12.4 million for new school buses. Haley, also a Republican, had vetoed the money, saying she wanted to privatize the bus system. The House also voted to restore another $20 million for schools, 89-18, which Haley had vetoed.
In other overrides, the House voted to restore:
• $1.9 million for the state Arts Commission.
• Almost $6 million for S.C. ETV.
• $1.1 million for University Center in Greenville by 89-22.
• $594,000 for Greenville Technical College by 78-31.
• $1.4 million for a program to help students with the high school-to-college transition by 82-28.
• Some state financing for next year’s GOP presidential primary.
Sounds like lawmakers have gotten just about as impatient with Nikki as they had with her predecessor.
