Gov. Haley to release her budget proposal

Gov. Haley to release her budget proposal

Haley is to release her plan for the coming year Monday afternoon. It comes one day before the start of the legislative session.

The Republican governor laid out her plans last week to improve education by focusing on poor, rural students. She would put more than $160 million into what she called the first of a multi-year effort. The details will come with the budget.

State economic advisers expect more than $265 million in new money in 2014-15. Adding expected one-time money means more than $400 million is available.

Requests for education and growth in Medicaid could eat up most, if not all of that.
