Its official and Its all up to Mark Sanford.
The bill heads to Gov. Mark Sanford, who indicated he may veto portions of the bill that limit the state's Medicaid program and sets aside money for regional economic development groups. Mark is a man that knows our states needy family's need these programs to survive so Im not looking at much that will sway him there. Mark Sanford has until Oct. 30 to veto portions of the budget with which he disagrees. The Legislature will return on Halloween to vote on his vetoes.
Overall there needs to be a contingency plan for these years that the revenue is less than what expected instead of the fire pattern we have had in the state budgets past.
In the midst of National economic turmoil this is just one more troubling event that spell what I think to be nothing but major troubles ahead. It will force our Nation and our States to look at what we all have been crying for all along. Cut The Fat!
