South Carolina Legislature Approves HIV/AIDS Services Cuts

June 7, 2010

Just minutes ahead of Thursday's deadline, legislators in South Carolina passed a $4.9 billion spending plan. Among other actions, the budget would cut $3 million from HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment services. It also would allow Medicaid patients to receive as many as eight prescriptions, up from the limit of three proposed in an earlier draft. Lawmakers will return to Columbia on June 15 to respond to any vetoes by Gov. Mark Sanford. The budget will take effect on July 1.
