Sanford sued by Timmonsville, S.C., mayor for line-item veto abuse

The mayor of Timmonsville, South Carolina, is taking Gov. Mark Sanford to court over a decision to fund the State Budget and Control Board with money budgeted for rural water, sewer and other infrastructure projects. Sanford violated limits on his line-item veto power in striking all funding for the State Budget and Control Board, Timmonsville Mayor Derrick Jackson argues in court filings.
