How refreshing that our state is finally dealing with its pension and retirement crisis.
State retirees have worked too hard to see this system dissolve before their eyes.
While I think it is challenging, I am proud that Gov. Nikki Haley had the courage to take on the fight. I was especially glad to hear that she wants to eliminate lawmakers' ability to double-dip with their pensions.
I hope other leaders will pay attention to her bold actions: South Carolina cannot afford to hold debt like Washington does.
Never miss a local story.
