Gov. Nikki Haley said she didn't want taxpayer dollars going to the South Carolina Arts Commission and ETV anymore, and to make good, she vetoed much of the funding on Tuesday.

Well, the state Senate and House didn't much care for it and overturned those vetoes by a wide margin (of course, in South Carolina, most governor vetoes seem to be overturned by a wide margin).

You can view the proposed budgets for the Arts Commission here ($1.9 million) and ETV here ($9.6 million).
