"South Carolina House Overrides Governor’s Veto Of Rape Crisis Center Funding"

The South Carolina House of Representatives has overridden Gov. Nikki Haley’s (R) veto of rape crisis center funding. Earlier this month, Haley vetoed nearly half a million dollars in money that would have gone to help victims, calling it a distraction from the Health Department’s mission. By a vote of 111 to zero, the House determined that they would continue funding the 15 centers that would have been affected by the cuts, rolling over Haley’s veto.
