COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Gov. Nikki Haley's proposed budget would spend more money on computer security and law enforcement.

Haley unveiled her $6.3 billion budget plan for the fiscal year that starts July 1 on Thursday.

It seeks $47 million for computer security following a massive breach at the state's tax collection agency. More than 40 percent of the money would pay back a loan approved last week by the Budget and Control Board to cover costs incurred so far.

The Department of Revenue is receiving a $20.2 million loan this fiscal year from the state's insurance reserves.

Haley wants $12.4 million to complete computer upgrades at the agency, plus $3 million for security consultants.

Haley also wants to hire 25 agents to supervise parolees, hire 18 state troopers and upgrade prison officers' safety.
