12:08 pm
think we finally got to see what that vote might look like." the governor says when it comes to schools -- they will no longer pass a child out of the third grade if they cannot read. in referencing higher education she says that's not our greatest need... instead she proposed to pass legislation permanently dedicating up to one percent of our state's bond capacity to k through 12 education facilities -- which will be determined through a priority-based process. after the governor's speech- lawmakers were specifically able to react to her call to ask senators to stand if they were for income disclosures and true independent investigations when it comes to ethics reform legislation. here's what they had to say: "we were a little bit disappointed that as she talked about bringing everybody together, she did ask the senate to stand up if they supported something that she did without
12:09 pm
defend themselves or talk or speak on why it is they may or may not have supported it. so that was- looked like kind of a childish trick." "governor haley was exactly right, senators in the senate have blocked that from coming up for a vote, and as she said tonight in asking those senators that stand with her in regard to those two items to stand up, that may be the only chance voters get this year to see where we stand on an ethics reform law to the table this year. republican hugh leatherman of florence told wis quote, "the senate's working on it- we'll see if we can come up with something." for more on governor haley's state of the state address and there you'll find complete transcripts of the speeches. a senate committee has unanimously approved interim director christy hall to run the south carolina department of transportation. hall has been interim director since last year--and was praised by lawmakers for her handling of the october flooding. hall's nomination now moves to the full senate for approval.
