Gov. Nikki Haley needs to give surplus details

info@islandpacket.comJanuary 29, 2014 

It was interesting reading the Jan. 23 article on Gov. Haley's State of the State address. The article describes what the governor wants to accomplish in 2014 and consequently brings to mind a few questions voters might want to address:

1. How large is the 2014 projected surplus of state revenues over planned or continuing state expenses?

2. How much of the surplus does she plan to allocate to road and bridge construction?

3. How much of the surplus does she plan to allocate to tax reductions?

4. How much of the surplus does she plan to allocate to pay for her improved public K-12 education plan?

5. Is there actually a projected surplus of revenues, and finally is the State of the State address a real honest plan for improving the conditions in South Carolina or just another politician's truck load of pie in the sky disinformation?
