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 Nahum 1:7: "The Lord is good, a stronghold in a day of trouble; He protects those who take refuge in Him, even in rushing floods."

Let us pray. Grant our hearts an inner vision of the Father's greatness, even when we go astray. Bring us back to Your loving arms that nourish us daily. Let us experience the joy in Your saving presence. Bless these Representatives and staff as they continue to work for the good of the people. Look in favor upon our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who advise and serve. 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.

SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE IN CHAIR

STATEMENT FOR THE JOURNAL

Today, I would like to call attention to a tragedy in my district that has touched all the residents of Greenwood. On Sunday afternoon, Evan Campbell, a senior at Greenwood Christian School, lost his life in an auto accident. He was much loved by the community and will be greatly missed. Our only consolation is that he had professed his faith in Jesus Christ and his witness caused others to commit their lives to Christ.

(F)   In order to assess the night hunting program, the person registering the property must report to the department the number of feral hogs, coyotes, and armadillos taken under the provisions of this section within thirty days following the end of the twelve month registration period, or prior to registering the property again.

MESSAGE FROM THE SENATE

The following was received:

Columbia, S.C., April 27, 2017
Mr. Speaker and Members of the House:
The Senate respectfully informs your Honorable Body that it has overridden the Veto by the Governor on R. 19, S. 568, by a vote of 39 to 0:

(R. 19) S. 568 (Word version) -- Senator Sabb: AN ACT TO AMEND ACT 471 OF 2002, RELATING TO THE COMPOSITION OF THE WILLIAMSBURG COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT BOARD OF TRUSTEES, SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT THE BOARD SHALL INCLUDE TWO MEMBERS FROM THE COUNTY AT-LARGE, TO PROVIDE FOR THE MANNER OF INITIAL APPOINTMENT OF THE TWO AT-LARGE MEMBERS, TO PROVIDE FOR STAGGERED TERMS OF THE TWO AT-LARGE MEMBERS, AND TO CONFORM THE ADDITION OF TWO AT-LARGE MEMBERS TO THE ELECTION OF MEMBERS TO THE BOARD AND FILLING VACANCIES ON THE BOARD.

Very respectfully,
President

R. 19, S. 568--ORDERED PRINTED IN THE JOURNAL

The SPEAKER ordered the following Veto printed in the Journal:

April 25, 2017
The Honorable Kevin L. Bryant
President of the Senate
State House, First Floor, East Wing
Columbia, South Carolina 29201

Dear Mr. President and Members of the Senate:

I am hereby vetoing and returning without my approval R. 19, S. 568 (Word version), which seeks to add two at-large members to the Board of Trustees of the Williamsburg County School District ("School Board"). Aside from constitutional concerns attendant to such special legislation, S. 568 improperly attempts to vest the Williamsburg County Legislative Delegation with the authority to implement and execute this local law. Therefore, for the reasons set forth below, I must veto S. 568.

At present, the School Board consists of seven members elected from single-member districts who serve staggered four-year terms. S. 568 seeks restore two at-large members to the School Board as previously provided prior to 2002 S.C. Act No. 471. To initiate this change, the bill provides that the Williamsburg County Legislative Delegation shall appoint two individuals to serve as at-large members of the School Board until the next nonpartisan election in 2018. For purposes of staggering terms in a manner that is consistent with the other seven School Board members, S. 568 dictates that one of the at-large members elected in 2018 shall serve a two-year term and that the other shall serve a four-year term. However, rather than designating the initial term of each seat, the bill prescribes that "[t]he members of the Williamsburg County Legislative Delegation shall designate which at-large seat shall be subject to the two-year term following the 2018 Election." R. 19, S. 568, Section (B)(2) (emphasis added). Therefore, the Williamsburg County Legislative Delegation will get to pick, post hoc, which of the two prevailing candidates will serve the longer, four-year term and which will serve the shorter, two-year term. Because the General Assembly may not "undertak[e] 'to both pass laws and execute them by setting its own members to the task of discharging such functions by virtue of their office as legislators,'" Knotts v. S.C. Dep't of Nat. Res., 348 S.C. 1, 8, 558 S.E.2d 511, 514 (2002) (quoting Aiken County Bd. of Educ. v. Knotts, 274 S.C. 144, 149 - 50, 262 S.E.2d 14, 17 (1980)), such a method of implementing staggered terms is inconsistent with our system of separation of powers.

For the foregoing reasons, I am respectfully vetoing R. 19, S. 568 and returning the same without my signature.

Yours very truly,
Henry McMaster
Governor

The Committee on Judiciary proposed the following Amendment No. 1 to H. 3240 (COUNCIL\CM\3240C001.GT.CM17), which was adopted:
Amend the bill, as and if amended, by striking all after the enacting words and inserting:
\   SECTION   1.   This Act may be cited as the "National Concealed Weapons Permit Reciprocity Act".
SECTION   2.   Section 23-31-215(N) of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 223 of 2016, is further amended to read:

"(N)(1)   Valid out-of-state permits to carry concealable weapons held by a resident of a reciprocal another state who is twenty-one years old or older must be honored by this State, provided, that the reciprocal state requires an applicant to successfully pass a criminal background check and a course in firearm training and safety. A resident of a reciprocal another state carrying a concealable weapon in South Carolina with a valid out-of-state permit to carry a concealable weapon is subject to and must abide by the laws of South Carolina regarding concealable weapons while in South Carolina. SLED shall maintain and publish a list of those states as the states with which South Carolina has reciprocity. The age twenty-one requirement does not apply to a member of the active or reserve military, or a member of the National Guard.

(2)   Notwithstanding the reciprocity requirements of item (1), South Carolina shall automatically recognize concealed weapon permits issued by Georgia and North Carolina.

(3)   The reciprocity provisions of this section shall not be construed to authorize the holder of any out-of-state permit or license to carry, in this State, any firearm or weapon other than a handgun."
SECTION   3.   Section 23-31-215(A) of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 123 of 2014, is further amended to read:

"(A)   Notwithstanding any other provision of law, except subject to subsection (B), SLED must issue a permit, which is no larger than three and one-half inches by three inches in size, to carry a concealable weapon to a resident or qualified nonresident who is at least twenty-one years of age, unless the person is a member of the active or reserve military, or a member of the National Guard, and who is not prohibited by state law from possessing the weapon upon submission of:

(1) a completed application signed by the person;

(2) a photocopy of a driver's license or photographic identification card;

(3) proof of residence or if the person is a qualified nonresident, proof of ownership of real property in this State;

(4) proof of actual or corrected vision rated at 20/40 within six months of the date of application or, in the case of a person licensed to operate a motor vehicle in this State, presentation of a valid driver's license;

(5) proof of training;

(6) payment of a fifty-dollar application fee. This fee must be waived for disabled veterans and retired law enforcement officers; and

(7) a complete set of fingerprints unless, because of a medical condition verified in writing by a licensed medical doctor, a complete set of fingerprints is impossible to submit. In lieu of the submission of fingerprints, the applicant must submit the written statement from a licensed medical doctor specifying the reason or reasons why the applicant's fingerprints may not be taken. If all other qualifications are met, the Chief of SLED may waive the fingerprint requirements of this item. The statement of medical limitation must be attached to the copy of the application retained by SLED. A law enforcement agency may charge a fee not to exceed five dollars for fingerprinting an applicant."
