No state funds for MUSC's new childrens hospital for now


CHARLESTON, SC - On Thursday lawmakers in Columbia debated giving MUSC $25 million for the new hospital.

But the funding did not pass before lawmakers adjourned.

The House passed a bill earlier this session that included $25 million for MUSC, but the Senate did not.

Senators started debating the measure, but it was filibustered by Sen. Tom Davis.

Lawmakers will reconvene on June 16, when they will have three days in the extended session to discuss bills that didn't pass, including the funding for MUSC's new children's hospital.
