Legislature vs. the governor - again

Sep 17, 2010 7:14:00 AM - thestate.com

Saying goodbye is so hard to do.

So, Republican lawmakers and Republican Gov. Mark Sanford are squaring off for one final fight over the state’s budget.

That has one key GOP lawmaker fuming that Sanford is trying to quietly sweep some of the state’s financial problems under the rug so that he can exit with his budget-hawk reputation intact.
