SC voters deciding 4 constitutional questions

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina voters are deciding on four proposed state constitutional amendments.

One question on Tuesday's ballot is over whether South Carolina residents should have a constitutional right to hunt and fish.

Another proposed amendment asks voters to determine if a secret ballot is a fundamental right in deciding whether workers are represented by a labor union.

Two other questions deal with financial proposals. One would increase the amount of money that state government must maintain in its general reserve fund from 3% to 5% of the previous fiscal year's revenue.

Another proposal would require the first priority of the state's capital reserve fund be to replenish that fund instead of offsetting midyear state agency budget cuts.
