If it was a big Corporation but it’s not; Gov. Nikki Haley refuses SC Educational Television Commission requests for funding to create Engineering positions for its Retiring Workforce

For all of Governor Nikki Haley’s talk of education, the Governor has refused to increase funding for South Carolina Educational Television Commission out-of-date tower system. The Commission has asked for a little over two million to create engineer positions needed for upgrading their communication tower but was willing to accepting a spread of additional money over out for several years.

South Carolina Educational Television Commission will already be facing a loss of $300,000 in federal funds, and have described funds to support their Towernet operations as exhausted. Besides jobs being created for what they call a soon to be retiring workforce, the Commission is concerned about keeping their equipment in good condition with regular testing, monitoring of equipment, and evaluation of data on equipment discrepancy reports.

Recently the Federal Government reported South Carolina Medicaid System doesn’t federal standards to prevent breaches.  Apparently being audited for that hasn’t shape the Governor’s mind that being prepared with working equipment is a good thing.

Perish the thought the Governor would be creating to new positions, but apparently unlike a job created in the private sector there won’t be a big Press Release and announcement before cameras to highlight Governor Nikki Haley.

The Governor will dig and find money for some big corporation but apparently she can’t bother to help her own state agencies. Those engineering jobs would mean more better paying  jobs to the people of South Carolina, but this is  something the Governor apparently overlooks.

South Carolina has dished countless dollars for companies saying they will create jobs in so many years, but when a job can be created immediately in a state agency Governor Haleys kicks the can down the road.

FUNDING
ALTERNATIVES
Existing fund balances have been used over the past 5 fiscal years and once depleted
there is no other mechanism in place.
What other possible funding sources were considered? Could this request be met in
whole or in part with the use of other resources, including fund balances? If so, please
comment on the sustainability of such an approach.
SUMMARY
A large number of ETV engineers will be retiring in the next two years. We have major
structural work that is needed now, and again once the FCC mandated repacking takes
place. The engineering positions are highly skilled and there is important institutional
knowledge we need to transfer. This will be accomplished through a combination of
training and apprenticeships. This request also represents legal fees and consulting in
order for ETV to take over management of state owned towers from the Department of
Administration. Lastly this funding represents procurement and administrative support
given the capital equipment needs for capital improvement and repacking of television
channels after the FCC mandated auction.
