Haley abandons Waddell Center

Gov. Nikki Haley has vetoed a desperately needed $1.1 million budget appropriation for emergency repairs and renovations to our own Waddell Mariculture Center. Her reasoning was that the. S.C. Department of Natural Resources should be using a portion of Waddell's annual operating budget. As the WMC budget is already at a subsistence level, $350,000 a year, it would take years to implement repairs that, according to engineers, are critical to the safety of both visitors and staff.
