View Amendment Current Amendment: 3198R003.lam.docx to Bill 3198     Senator L. MARTIN proposed the following amendment (3198R003.LAM):
    Amend the bill, as and if amended, by adding an appropriately numbered new SECTION to read:

/     SECTION     ___.     (A)     The General Assemby finds that pursuant to Section 14 of Act 61 of 2013, the act was to take effect upon preclearance approval by the United States Department of Jutice or approval by a declaratory judgment issued by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. The General Assembly further finds that the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Shelby County v. Holder suspended the State's requirement to obtain preclearance or a declaratory judgment under the provisions of the Voting Rights Act, which effectively removed the contingency upon which Act 61 was to take effect. As a result, the act does not contain a specific date to which it was to take effect.
    (B)     The General Assembly finds and declares that Act 61, which was approved on June 13, 2013, took effect on July 3, 2013 pursuant to the provisions of Sectioin 2-7-10.
