The House assembled at 10:00 a.m.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by Rev. Charles E. Seastrunk, Jr., as follows:

Our thought for today is from Psalm 23:1: "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not be in want."

Let us pray. O Lord, our God, thank You for being our shepherd and guarding us from danger and harm. You feed us with all that is necessary for us to live and work in these Chambers for the people of South Carolina. We give thanks as our shepherd leads us along the right pathways. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and for those who advise and work for the people. Protect our first responders and those who defend us at home and abroad. 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.

/SECTION     1.     Article 1, Chapter 1, Title 56 of the 1976 Code is amended by adding:

"Section 56-1-151.     An applicant for a new, renewed, or replacement South Carolina driver's license may apply to the Department of Motor Vehicles to obtain a veteran designation on the front of his driver's license. The department may place the designation on the driver's license of a person who presents a:

(1)   United States Department of Defense discharge certificate, also known as a DD Form 214, that shows a characterization of service or discharge status of 'honorable' or 'general under honorable conditions' and establishes the person's qualifying military service in the United States Armed Forces . A DD Form 214 indicating medical retirement that meets the characterization of service requirements will be valid for purposes of this section. However, a DD Form 214 received solely from participation in training activities will not be valid for purposes of this section; or

(2)   National Guard Separation Report, also known as a NGB Form 22, that shows a characterization of service or discharge status of 'honorable' or 'general under honorable conditions' and establishes that the person has served for twenty or more years."

"Section 56-1-3350.   (A)   Upon application by a person five years of age or older, who is a resident of South Carolina, the department shall issue a special identification card as long as the:

(1)   application is made on a form approved and furnished by the department; and

(2)   applicant presents to the person issuing the identification card a birth certificate or other evidence acceptable to the department of his name and date of birth.

(B)   An applicant for a new, renewed, or replacement South Carolina driver's license may apply to the Department of Motor Vehicles to obtain a veteran designation on the front of his driver's license by providing a:

(1)   United States Department of Defense discharge certificate, also known as a DD Form 214, that shows a characterization of service, or discharge status of "honorable" or "general under honorable conditions" and establishes the person's qualifying military service in the United States Armed Forces; and

(2)   payment of a one dollar fee that must be collected by the department and placed by the Comptroller General into the State Highway Fund as established by Section 57-11-20, to be distributed as provided in Section 11-43-167. (Reserved.)

(C)(1)   The fee for the issuance of the special identification card is five dollars for a person between the ages of five and sixteen years.

(2)   An identification card must be free to a person aged seventeen years or older.

(D)   The identification card expires five years from the date of issuance.

(E)   Special identification cards issued to persons under the age of twenty-one must be marked, stamped, or printed to readily indicate that the person to whom the card is issued is under the age of twenty-one.

(F)   The fees collected pursuant to this section must be credited to the Department of Transportation State Non-Federal Aid Highway Fund."

STATEMENT FOR THE HOUSE JOURNAL
ABSTENTION FROM VOTING
BASED ON POTENTIAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST

In accordance with Section 8-13-700(B) of the S.C.

I wish to have my recusal noted for the record in the House Journal of this date.

Whereas, the South Carolina House of Representatives was pleased to learn that the members of the University of South Carolina men's basketball team garnered a region title and punched a ticket to the program's first Final Four appearance on March 26; and

Whereas, the Gamecock's road to the Final Four began in Greenville against the Marquette Golden Eagles, who the Gamecocks defeated by a score of 93-73; and

Whereas, the Gamecocks shocked the world by knocking off the #2 seed Duke Blue Devils by a score of 88-81, busting millions of NCAA bracket predictions; and

Whereas, after making it to the Sweet Sixteen, the Gamecocks blew out the Baylor Bears in front of a large crowd in New York's Madison Square Garden; and

Whereas, led by Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, Sindarius Thornwell, the Gamecocks defeated the Florida Gators by a score of 77-70 to claim the East Regional championship and move on to the team's first Final Four appearance; and

Whereas, in a sport that exacts precisions, speed, and agility, Head Coach Frank Martin and his superb coaching staff maximized their own experience and passion to build a championship-caliber team and impart lessons to these athletes that will prove invaluable through life both on and off the court; and

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives value the pride and recognition that these basketball players have brought to their school and their community and look to hear of their continued achievements in the days to come. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
