South Carolina Arts Commission Facing Hatchet

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley eliminated the entire budget of her state’s Arts Commission in a late-night veto last week. The drastic cut involves two line vetoes out of 81 that Haley delivered on the 2012–13 state budget — one blocking the Arts Commission’s $1.9 million in state funding (veto #1) and another blocking $500,000 in grant money (veto #21).
