By the end of the day the legislature will likely override around 90% of Governor Mark Sanford's unnecessary and potentially devastating budget vetoes. Sanford's vetoes would have cut millions from higher education, made health and dental care in rural areas nearly impossible to obtain, threatened South Carolina's highly successful tourism industry and slashed funding for needed historic and cultural preservation. 

Today South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Joe Erwin made the
following statement:

"What we've learned today is that the checks and balances system works in South Carolina. Sanford's bizarre vetoes threatened to turn South Carolina into a third-world country. Thankfully, Democrats and Republicans in the legislature worked together to avoid the Sanford catastrophe." 

"No thanks to Mark Sanford the budget is balanced, trust funds are being
restored, and the state is fulfilling its obligations to fund crucial needs like education, health care, end economic development".
