Gov. Nikki Haley will release grades for state lawmakers sometime next month during a series of town-hall meetings around the state, according to her spokesman, Rob Godfrey.
In March, Haley gave lawmakers a preview of the report cards that she will use to grade each of the state's senators and House members.
The report cards will list 13 categories including:
• Haley’s preferred version of a bill requiring more on-the-record votes by lawmakers. Both chambers passed the bill this session and Haley signed it into law.
• Creating a new Department of Administration as well as merging two existing state agencies, the departments of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services, and Corrections. Haley tried to call lawmakers back into session this summer to deal with the issues but was stopped by a state Supreme Court ruling that said she lacked the authority to do so.
