MONCKS CORNER — More than a year after signing a bill that put Santee Cooper under stricter state oversight, Gov. Henry McMaster said he's pleased with the progress the utility has made."I think they are doing well, and people have confidence in them, but there is still the question of that enormous amount of debt," said McMaster, who once had called for the public electric and water provider to be sold after its financially disastrous involvement in the failed expansion of the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station in the Midlands.
