It's a subject that The Post and Courier has done a full breakdown on -- at the bottom of that story you'll also find a nice overview of all the other vetoed legislation (none of which is likely to grab you).

Sanford also knocked on the proposed new rules for the payday lending industry. While many have described the rules as far too weak, Sanford said the Legislature ought not interfere with the public's borrowing practices.

The Legislature will reconvene today, June 16, at 1 p.m. to consider the vetoes.
