The House assembled at 12:00 noon.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by Rev. Charles E. Seastrunk, Jr., as follows:

Our thought for today is from Psalm 112:1: "Hallelujah! Happy are they who fear the Lord and have great delight in God's commandments."

Let us pray. Heavenly Father, support and protect us in this earthly life and encourage us to answer the call to grow in faith and love, as these Representatives work with each other. As we are guided by Your hand, bless us in all we do. In this new week, give these men and women the desire to accomplish what has been set before them. Bless those who have leadership and authority over us as we ask Your guidance over our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and for those who work behind the scenes, bless and keep them in Your care. Protect our first responders and those who defend us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our men and women who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. 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 PRO TEMPORE.

After corrections to the Journal of the proceedings of Friday, the SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE ordered it confirmed.

H. 3429 (Word version) -- Reps. Clemmons and Norrell: A BILL TO AMEND SECTION 15-41-30, AS AMENDED, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO PROPERTY EXEMPT FROM BANKRUPTCY PROCEEDINGS OR ATTACHMENT, LEVY, AND SALE, SO AS TO REVISE EXEMPTIONS IN BANKRUPTCY.

The Committee on Judiciary proposed the following Amendment No. 1 to H. 3429 (COUNCIL\AHB\3429C001.BH.AHB17), which was adopted:
Amend the bill, as and if amended, by striking all after the enacting words and inserting:
/   SECTION   1.   Section 15-41-30(A) of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 153 of 2012, is further amended to read:

"(A)   The following real and personal property of a debtor domiciled in this State is exempt from attachment, levy, and sale under any mesne or final process issued by a court or bankruptcy proceeding:

(1)(a)   The debtor's aggregate interest, not to exceed fifty thousand dollars in value, in real property or personal property that the debtor or a dependent of the debtor uses as a residence, in a cooperative that owns property that the debtor or a dependent of the debtor uses as a residence, or in a burial plot for the debtor or a dependent of the debtor, except that the aggregate value of multiple homestead exemptions allowable with respect to a single living unit may not exceed one hundred thousand dollars. If there are multiple owners of such a living unit exempt as a homestead, the value of the exemption of each individual owner may not exceed his fractional portion of one hundred thousand dollars.

(b)   A surviving spouse may exempt, in addition to the aggregate interest, not to exceed fifty thousand dollars, owned in the residence prior to the death of the decedent spouse, the aggregate interest to which the surviving spouse succeeded by inheritance, testamentary transfer, or non-probate transfer on the death of the decedent spouse, not to exceed fifty thousand dollars. For purposes of this subsection, a surviving spouse means a spouse married to the decedent at the time of the death, who has not remarried, and who is living in the residence or cooperative that is used as a residence.

(2)   The debtor's interest, not to exceed five thousand dollars in value, in one motor vehicle.

(3)   The debtor's interest, not to exceed four thousand dollars in aggregate value in household furnishings, household goods, wearing apparel, appliances, books, animals, crops, or musical instruments, that are held primarily for the personal, family, or household use of the debtor or a dependent of the debtor.

(4)   The debtor's aggregate interest, not to exceed one thousand dollars in value, in jewelry held primarily for the personal, family, or household use of the debtor or a dependent of the debtor.

(5)   The debtor's aggregate interest in cash and other liquid assets to the extent of a value not exceeding five thousand dollars, except that this exemption is available only to an individual who does not claim a homestead exemption. The term 'liquid assets' includes deposits, securities, notes, drafts, unpaid earnings not otherwise exempt, accrued vacation pay, refunds, prepayments, and other receivables.

(6)   The debtor's aggregate interest, not to exceed one thousand five hundred dollars in value, in any implements, professional books, or tools of the trade of the debtor or the trade of a dependent of the debtor.

(7)   The debtor's aggregate interest in any property, not to exceed five thousand dollars in value of an unused exemption amount to which the debtor is entitled pursuant to subsection (A), items (1) through (6).

(8)   Any unmatured life insurance contract owned by the debtor, other than a credit life insurance contract.

(9)   The debtor's aggregate interest, not to exceed in value four thousand dollars less any amount of property of the estate transferred in the manner specified in Section 542(d) of the Bankruptcy Code of 1978, in any accrued dividend or interest under, or loan value of, any unmatured life insurance contract owned by the debtor under which the insured is the debtor or an individual of whom the debtor is a dependent.

(10)   Professionally prescribed health aids for the debtor or a dependent of the debtor.

(11)   The debtor's right to receive or property that is traceable to:

(a)   a social security benefit, unemployment compensation, or a local public assistance benefit;

(b)   a veteran's benefit;

(c)   a disability benefit, except as provided in Section 15-41-33, or an illness or unemployment benefit;

(d)   alimony, support, or separate maintenance; or

(e)   a payment under a stock bonus, pension, profit sharing, annuity, or similar plan or contract on account of illness, disability, death, age, or length of service, unless:

(i)     the plan or contract was established by or under the auspices of an insider that employed the debtor at the time the debtor's rights under the plan or contract arose;

(ii)   the payment is on account of age or length of service; and

(iii)   the plan or contract does not qualify under Sections 401(a), 403(a), 403(b), or 409 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 (26 U.S.C. 401(a), 403(a), 403(b), or 409).

(12)   The debtor's right to receive or property that is traceable to:

(a)   an award under a crime victim's reparation law;

(b)   a payment on account of the bodily injury of the debtor or of the wrongful death or bodily injury of another individual of whom the debtor was or is a dependent; or

(c)   a payment under a life insurance contract that insured the life of an individual of whom the debtor was a dependent on the date of that individual's death, to the extent reasonably necessary for the support of the debtor and any dependent of the debtor.

(13)   The debtor's right to receive individual retirement accounts as described in Sections 408(a) and 408A of the Internal Revenue Code, individual retirement annuities as described in Section 408(b) of the Internal Revenue Code, and accounts established as part of a trust described in Section 408(c) of the Internal Revenue Code. A claimed exemption may be reduced or eliminated by the amount of a fraudulent conveyance into the individual retirement account or other plan. For purposes of this item, 'Internal Revenue Code' has the meaning provided in Section 12-6-40(A). The interest of an individual under a retirement plan shall be exempt from creditor process to the same extent permitted in Section 522(d) under federal bankruptcy law and is an exception to Section 15-41-35. The exemption provided by this section shall be available whether such individual has an interest in the retirement plan as a participant, beneficiary, contingent annuitant, alternate payee, or otherwise.

(14)   The debtor's interest in a pension plan qualified under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended.

(15)   The debtor's aggregate interest, not to exceed ten thousand dollars in value, in any rifle, shotgun, pistol, or any combination of those owned by the debtor."

(B)   Schools that have made up, or will make up, at least three days or the equivalent number of hours, have received a waiver for three missed instructional days or the equivalent number of hours from their local governing board, and received a waiver of three additional days or the equivalent number of hours from the State Board of Education pursuant to Section 59-1-425, may have the local governing board waive up to five additional school days or the equivalent number of hours missed due to snow, extreme weather, or other disruptions requiring the school to close during the 2016-2017 School Year.

(C)   When a district waives a make-up day pursuant to this joint resolution, the make-up day also is waived for any student participating in a home schooling program approved by the board of trustees of the district in which the student resides.

Whereas, in recognition of the severity and magnitude of this disaster, the President made a declaration of a major disaster for twenty-one counties in South Carolina; and
Whereas, schools in these districts closed for varying numbers of days in the days surrounding Hurricane Matthew's landfall, and the unique circumstances of this natural disaster merit the waiving of some of these school closing days for school districts that have exhausted their remedies available under Section 59-1-425, which through Act 21 of 2015 was amended by the General Assembly to provide greater flexibility to school districts and the State Board of Education with respect to grating waivers for school days missed due to snow, extreme weather, or other disruptions requiring school closure.
