Let us pray. Faithful God, give these Representatives the courage to journey with You down new paths. We are humbled to know You have chosen us to serve You in untold ways, beyond our limited understanding. Keep these Representatives and staff always faithful to heed Your call. Guide those in positions of power and bless them in their work. Protect our defenders of freedom, at home and abroad, as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen.

Rep. Bannister proposed the following Amendment No. 5 to S. 19 (COUNCIL\GGS\19C004.GGS.AHB14), which was adopted:
Amend the bill, as and if amended, by deleting Section 17-15-55(C), as contained in SECTION 1, and inserting:
/   "(C)   If a person commits a violent crime, as defined in Section 16-1-60, which was committed when the person was already out on bond for a previous violent crime and the subsequent violent crime did not arise out of the same series of events as the previous violent crime, then the bond hearing for the subsequent violent crime must be held in the circuit court within thirty days. If the court finds that certain conditions of release on bond will ensure that the person is unlikely to flee or pose a danger to any other person or the community and the person will abide by the terms of release on bond, the judge shall consider bond in accordance with the provisions of this chapter and set or amend bond accordingly. If the court finds no such conditions will ensure that the person is unlikely to flee or not pose a danger to the community, the court shall not set a bond for the instant offense and must revoke all previously set bonds.   /
