COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Gov. Nikki Haley says state agencies own far too much property in South Carolina, and much of it should be sold.

Budget and Control Board Director Marcia Adams said Wednesday the first statewide inventory in at least a decade shows 109 agencies own nearly 12,300 buildings and plots of land.

Adams says a final listing should be ready by June 30. Her agency will then seek a contract for real estate management.

Haley says she's been asking for such a central inventory for three years. She issued an executive order last October directing her 16 Cabinet agencies to provide an accounting. Adams says other agencies voluntarily participated, including public universities and technical schools.

Haley says she's awaiting the final list to determine how much the state needs to liquidate.
