Haley to unveil report cards, legislative agenda

ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is hitting the road to give legislators grades on this year's session and unveiling her legislative plans for next session.

Haley begins a series of town hall meetings in Rock Hill on Monday night at Winthrop University. She wraps in Florence on Oct. 18.

The Republican governor announced the plans for the report cards in March and some legislators shrugged it off as a political play.

Haley's report card measures how lawmakers handled her legislative priorities.

Her priorities included more recorded votes; a new Cabinet-level agency to oversee much of the state's bureaucracy and spending caps. Five of the items on her dozen-item list cleared the Legislature and most passed the House but stalled in the Senate.
