Sanford to address budget cuts in Rock Hill
Gov. Mark Sanford will visit Rock Hill on Thursday to promote his plans to cut spending and change state government.
Details are still being worked out, but Sanford will talk about what he calls the need for transparency, spending limits and restructuring, spokesman Joel Sawyer said.
Sanford is battling with state lawmakers over how to make up for a deficit in the state budget. He wants the Legislature to cut $250 million.
The event is tentatively scheduled for 2:15 p.m. at Paddock Pool Equipment off U.S. 21 near Interstate 77.
It will be Sanford's first public appearance in Rock Hill in almost a year. Sanford visited Fort Mill in March to help Republican Mick Mulvaney kick off his bid for the state Senate.
