Governor Vetoes Funding For School Bus Replacements

posted by 560 WVOC-AM -

The state superintendent says Governor Henry McMaster's veto of funding for new school buses endangers students. 

The governor says he vetoed the 20-and-a-half-million-dollar proposal because it would take money from the lottery budget meant to fund scholarships. 

Superintendent Molly Spearman says over 15-hundred buses in the state's fleet are over 20-years-old and they need to be replaced. 

The General Assembly has the authority to override the governor's veto.
