South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford released a fiscal 2012 budget Tuesday — his final one as governor — that proposes some spending cuts for a state facing a $1.3 billion budget gap.

Though the $23.1 billion budget is a 6% increase over the current year, Sanford said it identifies $265 million in general fund savings. It allocates $199.2 million for debt service, down from $210.2 million in fiscal 2011.
