S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley will appear in Aiken on Tuesday for what she describes as a tax relief tour.The governor will visit Aiken Industries, 1910 Richland Ave. E., at 10:45 a.m., as well as businesses in Greenville, North Charleston and Garden City throughout the day.Haley blasted the House budget-writing committee last week for not including her own budget proposal to cut $140 million in taxes for the 2012-13 fiscal year.Brian White, the Ways and Means committee chairman, called her statements disappointing, according to The Associated Press. He's offended, he said, because House Republicans have been working on tax reform measures since last month that will give the governor what she has sought and more.
