VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
(A92, R1, H3278)
A JOINT RESOLUTION TO PROVIDE THAT UNTIL JUNE 30, 2011, THERE ARE NO RESTRICTIONS ON THE TYPES OF APPLICANTS OR ORGANIZATIONS THAT MAY APPLY FOR A SPECIAL FIFTEEN-DAY BEER AND WINE PERMIT AUTHORIZED BY SECTION 61-4-550 OF THE 1976 CODE IF THE APPLICANT MEETS ALL OTHER REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECTION AND ALL OTHER REQUIREMENTS OF LAW AS DETERMINED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The General Assembly finds that:
(1) Section 61-4-550 of the 1976 Code authorizes the issuance of special permits to sell beer and wine for a period not exceeding fifteen days for a fee of ten dollars per day and prior to 2010 contained no limitations as to the types of applicants or organizations who could apply for these permits.
(2) By Act 259 of 2010, the General Assembly amended Section 61-4-550 of the 1976 Code by, among other changes, restricting the issuance of such permits to only nonprofit organizations.
(3) The General Assembly now believes that this 2010 statutory change regarding the types of applicants was done in error and by this joint resolution seeks to temporarily rectify this problem until the General Assembly, through the legislative process, enacts permanent general law changes to effectuate this correction.
Applicants for special permits
SECTION 2. From the effective date of this joint resolution until June 30, 2011, there are no restrictions on the types of applicants or organizations that may apply for a special fifteen-day beer and wine permit authorized by Section 61-4-550 of the 1976 Code if the applicant meets all other requirements of the section and all other requirements of law as determined by the Department of Revenue.
SECTION 3. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor and expires on June 30, 2011.
Ratified the 27th day of January, 2011.
Approved the 27th day of January, 2011.
