State Senate Finance committee to continue budget talks
A panel of SC senators will decide a number of spending issues, including whether to give more money to K-12 schools, give state workers a pay increase and hire more Social Services child-welfare workers. They could also decide whether to cut spending in certain areas.
The Senate Finance Committee will meet after the Senate adjourns in Gressette Room 105. The budget is on the meeting agenda along with a bond bill that Senate Finance Chairman Hugh Leatherman, R-Florence introduced on Monday.
