McConnell: Senators should vote on adding Haley agenda item to special session

Jun 8, 2011 1:09:00 PM - thestate.com
State Senate President Pro Tem Glenn McConnell, R-Charleston, is drafting a resolution to let senators decide whether to continue debate on Gov. Nikki Haley's top priority bill.

In a letter to senators Wednesday, McConnell said he would draft a measure that would add Haley's bill to create a new Department of Administration to the limited list of bills that senators can take up when they return to work Tuesday for a special session.

Two-thirds of the Senate's 46 members would have to agree to take up the bill.

Haley applauded McConnell's letter Wednesday.

She says the bill would streamline some aspects of state government and shift portions of state government's day-to-day operations to the new department, directly under the governor's control. Those functions now are managed by the state Budget and Control Board.
