TO PROHIBIT THE ESTABLISHMENT OF NEW OFFICIAL STATE SYMBOLS AND EMBLEMS.
Whereas, there are currently forty-five official state symbols and emblems; and
Whereas, in order to preserve the storied and distinguished integrity of the official state symbols and emblems, a limit on the official declaration of symbols and emblems would ensure and protect the indelible history of our State and prominence and significance of State symbols and emblems. Now, therefore,
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The General Assembly shall be prohibited from establishing new official State symbols and emblems subsequent to the effective date of this resolution.
SECTION 2. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
