SC gov Haley signs reimbursement plan

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and the heads of police and ethics agencies have signed an agreement on handling security expenses when governors attend political events.

A copy of the agreement obtained Monday by The Associated Press sets what costs should be reimbursed by Haley and future South Carolina governors. It was signed Friday by Haley, State Law Enforcement Division Chief Mark Keel and State Ethics Commission director Herb Hayden.

Questions about Haley's reimbursements arose after she attended a June fundraiser for North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory. South Carolina ethics officials said Haley's campaign didn't have to pay her security costs because the event wasn't for her.

South Carolina law requires a security detail for the governor but also bars public funds or equipment from being used for campaign events.
