COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Gov. Nikki Haley plans a series of town hall meetings in South Carolina to unveil her agenda and to release report cards on legislators from this year's session.

Haley's office said Tuesday she'll kick off the meetings on Monday in Rock Hill and wrap them up on Oct. 18 in Florence.

Haley campaigned on holding legislators accountable for supporting or opposing her priorities. She said in March she would grade legislators on their work on issues important to her.

That included more recorded votes; a new Cabinet-level agency to oversee much of the state's bureaucracy and spending caps.

Legislators have said the report cards are a political move that don't mean much.

Haley also plans to release her list of legislative priorities for the second year of the General Assembly.
