Legislative Update from Rep. Gary Simrill

Rep. Simrill discusses the Department of Administration Bill that the House and Senate are both working on this week. It was proposed by Governor Haley and Rep. Simrill voices his agreement with her on the necessity of the new department. It will serve to eliminate the Budget Control Board which Simrill says has actually taken power away from the people when it comes to matters such as money and budgeting. The Bill they are working on will restore much of that power to a new cabinet position for the governor, and will provide a great deal of legislative oversight that has recently been absent from the budgetary process.
