  1. Appointment to State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners -

    Mrs. Rebecca I. Shealy ... Consumer Advocate

  2. H. 3592 -- Reps. Sandifer and Loftis: A BILL TO AMEND ARTICLE 8, CHAPTER 52, TITLE 48, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO THE "ENERGY INDEPENDENCE AND SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION ACT OF 2007", SO AS TO DELETE CERTAIN DEFINITIONS, TO CHANGE CERTIFICATION STANDARDS WITH WHICH MAJOR FACILITY PROJECTS MUST COMPLY, TO ELIMINATE REFERENCE TO THE LEED AND GREEN GLOBES CERTIFICATION RATING SYSTEMS, AND TO MAKE TECHNICAL CORRECTIONS.

  3. Document Number: 4284
    Agency Name: Clemson University - State Crop Pest Commission
    Statutory Authority: 46-9-40
    Synopsis: The State Crop Pest Commission proposes to amend certain sections of Article 17, specifically Regulation 27-1078 and Regulation 27-1085, to include a Limited Herbicide Applicators license. This will apply to landscapers using herbicide containing glysophosate as the sole active ingredient and with "Caution" as the signal word, working with terrestrial landscape weed control. This Limited Herbicide Applicators license would relieve the burden on commercial applicators using a less toxic herbicide than those commercial applicators using more environmentally severe herbicides.
