Columbia city staff proposed an 8 percent water and sewer rate hike Tuesday — and council members quickly rejected it wholesale, The State reports.

There's a good chance S.C. voters will get to decide whether to do away with the state's antiquated system of electing its adjutant general, who commands the state National Guard. The state Senate gave unanimous approval to a bill that would allow voters to decide this November whether to change the state constitution to make the adjutant general an appointed position. Gov. Nikki Haley supports the bill, as does the current adjutant general.
