Statement from Gov. Henry McMaster on PSC Ruling

December 14, 2018

COLUMBIA, S.C. - Governor Henry McMaster today released the following statement in response to the Public Service Commission's approval of the SCANA/Dominion merger:

"Since we learned of SCANA and Santee Cooper’s decision to abandon the VC Summer Project, my goal has been to ensure that the customers bear no burden for the failings of others. The Public Service Commission – which I am confident has vigorously sought to make the best of a bad situation – has conducted a transparent, open process and has carefully deliberated the positions of ratepayers, the power companies, and the court.

"Our goal now must be to learn from these failures, to never repeat them, and to continue to work diligently for the growth and prosperity of South Carolina."
