A roundup of what’s making news in South Carolina state government.
The board of trustees at financially-struggling South Carolina State University are scheduled to meet behind closed doors Wednesday — the same day they had promised to have more information about the fate of the school’s suspended president Thomas Elzey.
The trustees will hold a teleconference meeting Wednesday evening. The only item on the agenda is to get legal advice, which state law allows to be done away from the public.
Trustees placed Elzey on paid administrative leave last week. In a statement released immediately after that meeting, they pledged to give more information about his status by Wednesday.
