Gov. Nikki Haley said in her State of the State speech, "We need to shut down the General Assembly's own retirement system."
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The House Ethics Committee will decide whom it wants to testify in its investigation into allegations that Gov. Nikki Haley illegally lobbied while in the House.
The six-member committee meets Thursday to vote on whom to subpoena for next week's public hearing.
A complaint brought by Republican activist John Rainey accuses the Republican governor of illegally lobbying in her previous jobs as a fundraiser for a hospital and as a consultant for an engineering firm. Haley has repeatedly said she did nothing wrong.
The committee voted unanimously May 30 to reopen the case and hold the hearing. That vote came four weeks after members found probable cause that violations had occurred and then immediately dismissed all charges.
Committee Chairman Roland Smith will sign the subpoenas.
