Location: Columbia, SC

Governor Nikki Haley today issued the following statement after the South Carolina Senate gave key approval to S. 434 -- striking the provisos that prohibit the South Carolina Health and Human Services Director from setting rates paid to providers through Medicaid:

"We thank the Senators -- and Senator Peeler in particular -- for a courageous move towards improving health in our state. Tony Keck and I are committed to providing as much health to our patients for as little cost as possible to our taxpayers, and that effort started today. Senators chose the people and patients of South Carolina over the special interests - this was a huge win for our state."
