Money for local governments cut in SC Senate budget plan

The Senate panel, working on a proposal for the state budget to take effect July 1, cut $15.8 million from the $30 million in additional money that the S.C. House earmarked for local governments. The money for local governments was cut to help pay the $24.4 million cost of the 4K expansion and add about $25 million more for higher education, including about $10 million that is contingent on higher than expected lottery profits.
