WHEREAS, effective Friday, August 27, 1999, I issued Executive Order 99-40, which, among other things, placed the South Carolina National Guard on standby status and provided that specified units of the National Guard be placed on state active duty due to the threat Hurricane Dennis represented to the residents of certain coastal areas; and
WHEREAS, conditions now exist which justify ending the standby status of the National Guard and releasing all units which were placed on state active duty as a result of Executive Order 99-40 from that status.
NOW, THEREFORE, by virtue of the power and authority vested in me as Governor, pursuant to the Constitution and Statutes of the State of South Carolina, I hereby terminate the operation of Executive Order 99-40, effective 11:00 p.m. on August 30, 1999.
GIVEN UNDER MY HAND AND THE GREAT SEAL OF THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA, THIS 30TH DAY OF AUGUST, 1999.
