Is it possible for The State to question Gov. McMaster on how the state budget will be affected by his overly-cautious decision to evacuate the coastal counties and close schools across the state? I think it would be an important line of questioning in establishing the motives behind Gov. McMaster’s decision. Was he using the hurricane to bolster his image by “acting decisively” like former Gov. Nikki Haley? Will there be shortfalls in the budget that come out of the possible funding allocated to teacher raises? Has FEMA provided the bulk of funding that provides for road closures, infrastructure inspection and repair, or has Gov. McMaster just cost the taxpayers more than they are willing to pay for a “near-disaster”?
