COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO)– Gov. Henry McMaster vetoed 42 items from the General Appropriations Act on Friday morning. McMaster says South Carolina is winning with more than 21,000 new jobs, $6 billion in new capital investment, and unemployment at its lowest since 2000. He says the General Assembly has a few provisos that don’t align with his proposed Executive Budget. Two key vetoes were lack in transparency and accountability with High Education, and taxpayer money going to subsidize Planned Parenthood.
