Haley inaugural will go on as scheduled

Jan 10, 2011 1:43:00 PM - thestate.com
Gov.-elect Nikki Haley’s inaugural activities will go on as scheduled on Tuesday and Wednesday despite the winter storm, according to spokesman Rob Godfrey.

However, lawmakers will push Tuesday’s scheduled start of the Legislative session into the afternoon to allow more time for roads to improve after Monday’s snow and ice.

Snow and ice covered much of the state Monday and was expected to continue into early Tuesday.

But Godfrey said the Family Fun Night scheduled Tuesday night at the state fairgrounds would go on as scheduled. Tickets for the event are $20 for adults; children 18 and under are free.

A prayer service is scheduled for Wednesday morning followed by Haley’s swearing-in. A $250-a-couple formal gala is planned for Wednesday night.
