Where does your tax money go? In most instances it supports direct government activities such as schools, police, housing, public health and the like.
But in many instances your tax money is transferred to nonprofit corporations that have convinced government leaders that they perform a service worthy of public support. Museums, festivals, parks and tourism promoters are common nonprofit recipients of public funds.
There is a bill, H.3931, pending in the S.C. House, that would exempt nonprofit organizations getting public funds from the Freedom of Information Act.
