COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is announcing her choice to run a Cabinet agency.
 
Haley has scheduled a news conference Tuesday afternoon at the Statehouse. The notice did not provide further details.
 
Only one Cabinet seat is open. Sixteen agencies report to the governor.
 
The Insurance Department has had an interim leader since former Director David Black abruptly resigned in December without explanation. Haley named Gwen Fuller-McGriff acting director the next day.
 
The Revenue Department has been under scrutiny since officials announced last month that a hacker accessed millions of tax returns filed since 1998. The data compromised from 3.8 million personal tax returns and 657,000 business filings include unencrypted Social Security numbers.
 
Haley has repeatedly said no one would be fired because of the breach.
