Indicates Matter Stricken
Indicates New Matter

The House assembled at 2:00 p.m.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by Rev. Charles E. Seastrunk, Jr., as follows:

Our thought for today is from Micah 6:8: "He has told you, O mortal, what is good, and what does the lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God?"
Let us pray. Merciful God, You have given abundant goodness to us. Open our hearts and minds this day to make the proper decisions in dealing with these Vetoes. Bless each of us in all our doings and continue to care and provide for these, Your servants. Watch over us through this day and always. Bless our Nation and State. Protect our defenders of freedom, at home and abroad, as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.

Pursuant to Rule 6.3, the House of Representatives was led in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America by the SPEAKER.

After corrections to the Journal of the proceedings of Tuesday, June 17, the SPEAKER ordered it confirmed.

R. 314, S. 813--ORDERED PRINTED IN THE JOURNAL

The SPEAKER ordered the following Veto printed in the Journal:

June 13, 2014
The Honorable Glenn F. McConnell
State House, First Floor, East Wing
Columbia, South Carolina 29201

Dear Mr. President and Members of the Senate,
I am vetoing and returning without my approval R. 314, S. 813 (Word version), which provides for a criminal penalty for individuals who enter public libraries after having been warned not to do so. I am vetoing this bill because it grants library employees wide authority to deprive citizens of their ability to use a public libraries for an indefinite amount of time based on mere allegations of misconduct.
This bill was introduced to assist public libraries in securing their facilities from individuals who engage in serious or continuous misconduct. Although libraries have the ability to ask individuals to leave for the remainder of any given day, an Attorney General's opinion issued in 2009 explains their limited authority to expel individuals for longer periods of time.
While I understand the problems public libraries face, I have serious misgivings about the scope of authority this bill gives to unelected county library boards. Further, county governments have the authority to pass local ordinances dictating acceptable conduct on public property and consequences for those actions. Rather than a one-size-fits-all solution at the state level, each county government can and should tailor solutions to the particular problems faced by public libraries in their community.
In the interest of preserving due process and maintaining the spirit of true public-use for publicly funded facilities, I ask that each member of the General Assembly cast a vote to sustain my veto. God bless.

My very best,
Nikki R. Haley
Governor

R. 205, S. 293--ORDERED PRINTED IN THE JOURNAL

The SPEAKER ordered the following Veto printed in the Journal:

June 3, 2014
The Honorable Glenn F. McConnell
President of the Senate
Statehouse, Second Floor
Columbia, South Carolina 29201

Dear Mr. President and Members of the Senate,

I am vetoing and returning without my approval R. 205, S. 293 (Word version), a bill that raises the cap on property taxes for the Murrell's Inlet-Garden City Fire District from 10 mills to 14 mills. I have vetoed this bill because I believe that taxpayers deserve a chance to vote on tax increases.

I have been clear that these types of local bills - that effectively and inevitably raise taxes on citizens - should first go to the citizens to be voted into law.

Not only does this bill deny the people a referendum on a tax increase, this bill also gives an appointed, unelected board the authority to set the new millage rate under the increased cap. As a matter of good government, we should not allow a board that is insulated from and unaccountable to the people raise taxes on those it supposedly serves.

Let me remind you that every member of the General Assembly is expected to vote on every bill, even local bills. For these reasons, I respectfully ask that every member of the Senate vote to sustain my veto. Together, we can save the taxpayers of Murrell's Inlet and Garden City from a tax increase they did not choose and cannot control.

My very best,
Nikki R. Haley
Governor

So, the Veto of the Governor was sustained and a message was ordered sent to the Senate accordingly.

RECORD FOR VOTING

My decision to vote to override the Veto on R. 205, S. 293, was in response to the overwhelming requests in letters and e-mails from citizens in the affected area, Murrell's Inlet-Garden City Fire District, who wrote me to override in order to lower the property insurance on their homes and businesses.

Rep. Dwight Loftis

Rep. BRANHAM moved that the House do now adjourn, which was agreed to.

ADJOURNMENT

At 4:03 p.m. the House, in accordance with the motion of Rep. GOLDFINCH and in accordance with H. 5282, the Sine Die Adjournment Resolution, adjourned in memory of Durwood Barton of Murrells Inlet.
