The $5 billion spending plan the S.C. Senate approved early Friday leaves many state agencies short on money, but some of those losses are made up by federal bailout cash. Some agencies end up winners, too.
Election Commission: 237 percent increase, or $3.4 million. Why you care: The money helps the commission run elections in November.
Commerce Department: 87 percent increase, or $4.1 million. Why you care: The agency gets $5 million to seal job-creating deals.
Senate: 73 percent, or $5.6 million. Why you care. Senate President Pro Tem Glenn McConnell said the Senate has run out of reserve cash and would face staff cuts amid the need for major repairs to its office building. And $1.9 million covers redrawing voting district lines for the Legislature and U.S. House seats.
Lieutenant Governor's Office: 43 percent increase, or $1.4 million. Why you care: The lieutenant governor runs the state's Office on Aging, which picked up $1.6 million in state cash for home- and community-based meals.
Probation and Parole: 28 percent increase, or $4.2 million. Why you care: About $2.7 million of the increase covers the costs of complying with state sentencing laws.
Judicial Department: 31 percent decrease, or $7 million. Why you care: The reduction is more than covered by a more than $20 million increase in court fees that will make it more expensive to file and pursue lawsuits.
State Ethics Commission: 30 percent decrease, or $109,266 in state funds. Why you care: The agency is the chief enforcement agency for the state's campaign finance, lobbying and ethics laws.
Department of Natural Resources: 25 percent decrease, or $4.2 million. Why you care: The agency would make up more than $2.7 of that loss with a $2 increase in hunting and fishing licenses and $5 hike in boat licenses.
Department of Labor and Licensing: 24 percent decrease, or $426,130. Why you care: The agency oversees the licensing and regulation of dozens of professions.
Attorney General: 23 percent decrease, or $1.1 million. Why you care. The attorney general is the state's top prosecutor and lawyer.
