Governor Haley's remarks will be preceded by the panel discussion featuring Mike Franc, vice president for government studies at The Heritage Foundation; Mike Needham, chief executive officer of the leading Washington think tank's political action arm, Heritage Action for America; and Congressman Walsh.

Haley, recent author of "Can't Is Not an Option," was elected the 116th governor of South Carolina in 2010. One of the strongest fiscal conservatives in state government, she was first elected to represent the 87th District in Lexington County in 2004, when, as a virtual unknown, she beat the longest-serving state legislator in a Republican primary. In 2008, she was sent back to the Statehouse with 83 percent of the vote - the highest percentage earned by any lawmaker facing a contested South Carolina election that year.

The Heritage Foundation is America's most broadly supported public policy research institute. Heritage works to develop effective policy solutions based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values and a strong national defense. Approximately 17,500 of Heritage's hundreds of thousands of members reside in Chicagoland.
