Norman the lone dissenting vote in override of Haley’s veto

Rock Hill representative Ralph Norman was the lone dissenting vote in a house decision Wednesday that was nearly unanimous in overriding a veto from Governor Nikki Haley.

Tuesday, Haley vetoed a resolution by the house blocking the dredging of the Savannah River.

Norman told WRHI late Wednesday that there was no reason for him to doubt the decision initially made by the state health department to approve the dredging permit.

St. Matthews Democrat Harry Ott said the governor needs to admit she’s wrong — but Norman, a republican, disagreed.

Ott and others said Wednesday the governor is doing more to help Georgia than South Carolina.

Norman said he welcomes the healthy competition from the Savannah port and thinks it will lead to greater growth in the years to come.
