South Carolina senate overrides Haley's veto

See also

Just a few days ago, many districts and teachers were left wondering about how they were going to make it when the governor vetoed budget money for teacher salaries. The South Carolina Senate overrode Governor Nikki Haley’s budget veto of $10 million for teachers’ mandated salary increases. Without the money, school districts would have to raise local property taxes to provide the 2 percent raises a budget clause requires. The money can only be used on education and all budgets are for one year. The $10 million comes from the penny added on to the state sales tax in 1984 for education innovation.
