Gov. Nikki Haley said she didn't want taxpayer dollars going to the South Carolina Arts Commission and ETV anymore, and given the strong Republican majority and tight budget in South Carolina, it seemed like Haley would get her way or, at the very least, legislators would have to find a creative way to fund the groups.
Well, the House kept the money in and Haley's attention turned to the Senate ... and they just included it by a 25-18 vote.
