SC legislators continue work on state budget


May 19, 2008

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- House and Senate members are meeting to work out differences in their $7 billion state budget plans.

The budget conference committee began meeting last week.

The Senate cut 180 million dollars from the budget last month and the House has approved most of those cuts.

But there are big differences in how the separate plans would pay for public school programs. The House plan includes money for tourism grants and projects related to college research, but the Senate cut those.
