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 25:6: "Remember, O Lord, Your compassion and love, for they are from everlasting."

Let us pray. Heavenly Father, make us grateful for Your love and compassion You so wonderfully provide for these Your people, who strive to do the best possible for the people they serve. We pray for those in need, those who suffer in any way. Grant them Your compassion and faithfulness. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and those who serve. Bless and protect our defenders of freedom and first responders as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors 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.

Amend the bill, as and if amended, Section 59-20-90(C), as contained in SECTION 1, pages 1-2, by deleting the item in its entirety and inserting:
/   (C)   'Fiscal watch' is the first level and lowest level of concern.

(1)(a)   The State Superintendent of Education shall declare fiscal watch if:

(ai)   he determines, within his discretion, that a district declared to be in fiscal watch has not acted reasonably to eliminate or correct practices or conditions that prompted the declaration and has determined that a state of fiscal watch is necessary to prevent further decline; and upon review of the district's annual audit, the department determines financial practices occurring outside of acceptable accounting standards exist;

(ii)   the district submits an annual audit more than sixty days after the December first deadline provided in Section 59-17-100;

(biii)   there is any type of ongoing, related investigation by any state or federal law enforcement agency or any other investigatory agency of the State;

(iv)   an outside, independent auditing firm declares that a school district's financial records are unauditable; or

(v)   the department identifies significant deficiencies, material weaknesses, direct and material legal noncompliance, or management letter comments which, in the opinion of the department, the aggregate effect of the reported issues has, or could have, a significant effect on the financial condition of the district.

(b)   If a district meets the criteria in (A), the State Superintendent shall declare a fiscal watch only after prior notification with the district board chairman and district superintendent, who must begin immediate consultation with the chief financial officer of the district. The watch notification must include steps the district may take to avoid the declaration.

(2)   After prior written notification with the district board chairman and superintendent, the State Superintendent of Education may declare fiscal watch if:

(a)   an independent, outside auditing firm notifies the department that the district is not operating under generally accepted accounting principles; or

(b)   the district does not maintain a general reserve fund of at least one month of general fund operating expenditures of the previous two completed fiscal years, or has not made progress in increasing the general reserve fund balance in accordance with department guidelines to meet at least one month of general fund operating expenditures within the previous two completed fiscal years. /

Amend the bill, as and if amended, by striking SECTION 1 and inserting:
/   SECTION 1.A.   Section 44-53-160 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:

"Section 44-53-160.   (A)(1)   Annually, within thirty days after the convening of each regular session of the General Assembly, the department shall recommend to the General Assembly any additions, deletions, or revisions in the schedules of controlled substances enumerated in Sections 44-53-190, 44-53-210, 44-53-230, 44-53-250, and 44-53-270 which the department deems necessary. Except as otherwise provided in this section, the department shall not make any additions, deletions, or revisions in the schedules until after notice and an opportunity for a hearing is afforded to all interested parties. In making a recommendation to the General Assembly regarding a substance, the department shall consider the following:

(a)   the actual or relative potential for abuse;

(b)   the scientific evidence of the substance's pharmacological effect, if known;

(c)   the state of current scientific knowledge regarding the substance;

(d)   the history and current pattern of abuse;

(e)   the scope, duration, and significance of abuse;

(f)   the risk to public health;

(g)   the potential of the substance to produce psychic or physiological dependence liability;

(h)   whether the substance is an immediate precursor of a substance already controlled pursuant to this chapter; and

(i)     whether the substance has an accepted or recognized medical use.

(2)   After considering the factors listed in subsection (A)(1), the department shall make a recommendation to the General Assembly specifying to what schedule the substance should be added, deleted, or rescheduled, if the department finds that the substance has a potential for abuse.

(B)   Except as otherwise provided in this section, during the time the General Assembly is not in session, the department may add, delete, or reschedule a substance as a controlled substance after providing notice and a hearing to all interested parties. The addition, deletion, or rescheduling of a substance pursuant to this subsection has the full force of law unless overturned by the General Assembly. Upon the addition, deletion, or rescheduling of a substance, the department shall forward copies of the change to the Chairmen of the Medical Affairs Committee and the Judiciary Committee of the Senate, the Medical, Military, Public and Municipal Affairs Committee, and the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives, and to the Clerks of the Senate and House, and shall post the schedules on the department's website indicating the change and specifying the effective date of the change.

(CB)   If a substance is added, deleted, or rescheduled as a controlled substance pursuant to federal law or regulation, the department shall, at the first regular or special meeting of the South Carolina Board of Health and Environmental Control within thirty days after publication in the federal register of the final order designating the substance as a controlled substance or rescheduling or deleting the substance, add, delete, or reschedule the substance in the appropriate schedule. The addition, deletion, or rescheduling of a substance by the department pursuant to this subsection has the full force of law unless overturned by the General Assembly. The addition, deletion, or rescheduling of a substance by the department pursuant to this subsection must be in substance identical with the order published in the federal register effecting the change in federal status of the substance. Upon the addition, deletion, or rescheduling of a substance, the department shall forward copies of the change to the Chairmen of the Medical Affairs Committee and the Judiciary Committee of the Senate, the Chairman of the Medical, Military, Public and Municipal Affairs Committee, and the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives, and to the Clerks of the Senate and House, and the Code Commissioner, and shall post the schedules on the department's website indicating the change and specifying the effective date of the change.

(DC)   The department shall exclude any nonnarcotic substance from a schedule if the substance may, under the federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the laws of this State, be lawfully sold over the counter without a prescription.

(ED)   The department's addition, deletion, or rescheduling of a substance as a controlled substance is governed by this section and is not subject to the promulgation requirements of Title 1, Chapter 23, Title 1."
SECTION 1.B.   The repeal or amendment by this act of any law, including regulations promulgated pursuant to SECTION 1.A., whether temporary or permanent or civil or criminal, does not affect pending actions, rights, duties, or liabilities founded thereon, or alter, discharge, release or extinguish any penalty, forfeiture, or liability incurred under the repealed or amended law, unless the repealed or amended provision shall so expressly provide. After the effective date of this act, all laws repealed or amended by this act must be taken and treated as remaining in full force and effect for the purpose of sustaining any pending or vested right, civil action, special proceeding, criminal prosecution, or appeal existing as of the effective date of this act, and for the enforcement of rights, duties, penalties, forfeitures, and liabilities as they stood under the repealed or amended laws.   /
