February 16, 2012

Columbia, S.C. – South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Chad Connelly today praised the South Carolina Senate upon its passage of the Department of Administration bill (H. 3066). The bill, championed by Governor Nikki Haley and key Republicans, abolishes South Carolina’s antiquated Budget and Control Board and moves important functions of government to their appropriate branches.

“Governor Haley and our Senate Republican Caucus deserve great praise for leading the way in making state government more accountable,” said Connelly.

“This is a long overdue reform, and I am pleased that so many Democrats agree with our Republican platform of good government.”
