COLUMBIA, S.C. -

The South Carolina House has sent the Senate a $6.3 billion proposed spending plan that boosts school spending, hires law enforcement officers and fixes bridges with load restrictions.

The House voted 116-1 Wednesday on third reading of the budget plan.

The chamber then approved 119-0 a separate measure distributing $113 million from this year's rainy day fund. That includes $25 million to improve cyber-security across state agencies and extend credit monitoring to taxpayers who sign up for the state-covered service by March 31.

Votes sealing up the House plans followed an all-day debate Tuesday that centered on Democrats' attempts to expand Medicaid under the federal health care law to cover hundreds of thousands of additional poor adults.

The House defeated several attempts along party lines.
