Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Preparations of budgets of school districts in Orangeburg County
SECTION 1. Section 1 of Act 245 of 1983, as last amended by Act 611 of 1986, is further amended to read:
"Section 1. The board of trustees of the school districts in Orangeburg County, before July 1, 1987, shall prepare a school district budget for the ensuing school year. Before September 2, 1987, each board of trustees shall notify the county auditor and treasurer in writing of the millage required for the operation of the schools in its respective district for the 1987-88 school year. The notice by each board constitutes authority for the levying and collection of the millage upon all of the real and personal property within the respective school district. The levy must be placed to the credit of the district in which it is levied and expended within that district only except that one additional mill must be levied and collected by the county treasurer to be used by the county board of education. Orangeburg County School Districts Nos. 3 and 7 may not raise their millage by more than twelve mills
and Orangeburg County School Districts Nos. 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, and 8 may not raise their millage by more than five mills above the inflation factor prescribed in the South Carolina Education Improvement Act of 1984 unless a majority of the registered electors of the particular district voting in a referendum called by the district board of trustees and conducted by the county election commission vote in favor of the millage increase budget becoming effective. In addition to the millage increase allowed by this section without a referendum, Orangeburg County School Districts Nos. 3 and 7 may, without a referendum, add millage sufficient to cover any operating deficit for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1988, and the notes and bonds issued to fund the deficit."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Approved the 26th day of May, 1987.
