Let us pray. Lord, bless these servants of the people as they discuss and debate the items on the budget which are of great importance for the citizens of this State. As chosen servants of the people, strengthen them with the best results from their thoughts and actions. Bless them during this day and keep them in Your care. For our leaders and staff, give them strength and wisdom as they work through this day. 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.

RECORD FOR VOTING

I mistakenly voted on Section No. 23, Part 1B, of H. 4701, the General Appropriation Bill, regarding the Medical University of South Carolina. I have abstained from voting on this section based on a potential conflict of interest. My vote would not change the outcome.

Rep. Todd Atwater

(A) All Medicaid authorizations and state plan amendments required to implement the Medicaid expansion set out in subparagraph (B); however, implementation of subparagraph (B) is dependent upon the federal government providing one hundred percent of the Medicaid funding necessary for expansion in accordance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, P.L. 111-148 of 2010, as amended by the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, P.L. 111-152 of 2010.
(B) Beginning July 1, 2014, the following are eligible for Medicaid pursuant to the provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, P.L. 111-148 of 2010, as amended by the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, P. L. 111-152, of 2010:
(1) a family with income at or below one hundred thirty-three percent of the federal poverty level; and
(2) a childless individual nineteen through sixty-four years of age with income at or below one hundred thirty-three percent of the federal poverty level.
(C) There is created the Contingency Fund for Continued Care in the Office of the State Treasurer, a fund separate and distinct from the general fund of the state for the purpose of preserving funds for the continuation of Medicaid expansion if authorized by the General Assembly pursuant to subparagraph (D). The following must be deposited into this fund: (1) health care savings generated from programs, policies, and procedures of the Department of Health and Human Services as provided in the Healthy Outcomes Inititive during fiscal year 2015 ;

SECTION 84--AMENDED AND ADOPTED

Reps. WHITE and J.R. SMITH proposed the following Amendment No. 16 (Doc Name h:\legwork\house\amend\h-wm\006\dot road acceptance.docx), which was adopted:
Amend the bill, as and if amended, Part IB, Section 84, DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, page 465, paragraph 84.12, , lines 1-10, by striking the proviso in its entirety.
Amend the bill further, as and if amended, Section 84, DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, page 465, after line 10, by adding an appropriately numbered paragraph to read:
/(DOT: Road Acceptance Program) The requirement that County Transportation Committees spend twenty-five percent of their "C" Fund apportionment on the state highway system for construction, improvements and maintenance is suspended. Prior to making any distribution of "C" Funds, the Department of Transportation shall sequester twenty-five percent of the total County Transportation Fund for a Road Acceptance Program. Any municipal or county government can file an application with the department, as approved by the applicable County Transportation Committee, to accept into its road system a segment of the state system in return for a recurring allocation from these sequestered funds, that is based upon an agreed estimate of the annual maintenance, repair, and replacement costs of the segment. Roads or road segments selected for this provision shall: not create orphans to the system; include any located within the municipal or county limits; and be grouped, if possible, to make maintenance operations more efficient. Preference shall be given to applications that seek to accept single purpose local roads and road segments that are 1/2 mile or less in length. In the aggregate, no county is eligible to receive more 'acceptance dollars' than they would have received under the prior formula. If at any time the 'acceptance dollars' are not annually remitted to the acquiring county, ownership of any segment for which the agreed upon allocation has not been fully funded, must revert back to the State. Any remaining balance of the sequestered funds shall be carried forward and expended as directed by the General Assembly./

Section 87 was adopted.

SECTION 88--AMENDED AND ADOPTED

Reps. ERICKSON, PATRICK, HERBKERSMAN, and NEWTON proposed the following Amendment No. 69 to (Doc Name h:\legwork\house\amend\h-wm\006\spa port royal.docx), which was adopted:
Amend the bill, as and if amended, Part IB, Section 88, STATE PORTS AUTHORITY, page 467, after line 2, by adding an appropriately numbered paragraph to read:
/(SPA: Port Royal) The State Ports Authority is directed to sell all its property at Port Royal as soon as practicable. Prior to sale, the authority shall have the property appraised by a State Certified General Real Estate Appraiser who is a member of the Appraisal Institute (MAI) with experience in appraising closed industrial sites. If the State Ports Authority has not received or accepted a bona fide offer to purchase any of its property at Port Royal by June 29, 2015, the authority shall transfer all remaining property to the Budget and Control Board, or its successor entity, on June 30, 2015. The Budget and Control Board, or its successor entity, is authorized on behalf of the authority to sell the remaining property at public auction in any manner it deems appropriate, including but not limited to selling the property in parcels. However, if the auction price for any parcel, or the property as a whole, does not meet the eighty percent of appraised value threshold, then the Budget and Control Board, or its successor entity, must market and sell the property on behalf of the authority as soon as practicable in a commercially reasonable manner considering the type and location of the property. Upon the transfer of the property, the Budget and Control Board or its successor entity, is vested with all of the board's fiduciary duties to the authority and the authority's bondholders./

Rep. ERICKSON explained the amendment.

POINT OF ORDER

Rep. COBB-HUNTER raised the Rule 5.3B Point of Order that Amendment No. 69 (Sub 2) was out of order in that it was not germane to H. 4701, Part 1B, Section 88, States Port Authority.
Rep. ERICKSON spoke to the Point of germaneness stating that the Ports Authority does have ownership and this gives them a new agreement on how to sell the property so that the revenue could go to the state.
Rep. HERBKERSMAN spoke against the Point.
Rep. CRAWFORD spoke against the Point.
Rep. J. E. SMITH spoke in favor of the Point
Rep. SIMRILL spoke against the Point.
SPEAKER HARRELL overruled the Point of Order and ruled Amendment No. 69 (Sub 2) to be germane. He stated that Rule 5.3B states that the substantial effect of all temporary provisions of law and amendments thereto must be directly germane to the appropriation of funds, affecting revenue, or be rules, regulations, directives, or procedures relative to the appropriation of funds or affecting revenue for the fiscal year referred to in the Bill. If the sale of the property occurs as directed it would affect revenues in the fiscal year referred to in the Appropriation Bill.

The amendment was then adopted.

Rep. BOWERS proposed the following Amendment No. 107 (Doc Name H:\LEGWORK\HOUSE\AMEND\H-WM\010\JASPER PORT PROCEEDS.DOCX), which was tabled:
Amend the bill, as and if amended, Part IB, Section 88, STATE PORTS AUTHORITY, page 467, after line 2, by adding an appropriately numbered paragraph to read: /(SPA: Port Royal Proceeds) Of the funds awarded from the sale of any real or personal property at Port Royal to the State Ports Authority, the Budget and Control Board, or the successor entity to the Budget and Control Board, fifty percent of the proceeds shall be used by the State Ports Authority for the purpose of developing the Jasper Port./

SECTION 97--AMENDED AND ADOPTED

Rep. CLEMMONS proposed the following Amendment No. 98 (Doc Name COUNCIL\BH\4701C007.BH.DG14.DOCX), which was adopted:
Amend the bill, as and if amended, Part IB, Section 97, OFFICE OF STATE TREASURER, page 479, after line 7, by adding an appropriately numbered paragraph to read:
/ 97.__.   (TREAS: Accommodations Tax Withholdings) If the State Treasurer is withholding accommodations tax revenue distributions to a municipality due to an expenditure the Tourism Expenditure Review Committee determined to be in noncompliance, then the municipality or county may refund an amount equivalent to the amount determined to be in noncompliance to the appropriate fund. If the municipality or county certifies to the committee that the amount has been refunded, the State Treasurer shall no longer subject the municipality or county to future withholdings of the amount determined to be in noncompliance. After the amount determined to be in noncompliance has been refunded, the municipality or county may expend the funds for a compliant tourism-related purpose. Any subsequent expenditure of a refunded amount is subject to the reporting and review requirements of Chapter 4, Title 6. If the municipality or county certifies to the committee that the amount previously determined to be in noncompliance has been refunded to the appropriate fund, then any amount withheld from the municipality or county from subsequent allocations must be returned in same amount and manner that it was withheld.
The Tourism Expenditure Review Committee shall notify the municipality or county if an expenditure is found to be in noncompliance. If the committee informs the county or municipality of an expenditure determined to be in noncompliance and the county or municipality does not refund the noncompliant amount, the committee shall certify the noncompliance to the State Treasurer. If the committee determines an expenditure of any refunded amount to be in noncompliance, the municipality or county may not refund an equivalent amount in order to avoid future withholdings.   /
Renumber sections to conform.
Amend totals and titles to conform.

Rep. CLEMMONS explained the amendment.

The amendment was then adopted by a division vote of 85 to 1.

The question then recurred to the adoption of the section.

STATEMENTS FOR HOUSE JOURNAL

ABSTENTION FROM VOTING
BASED ON POTENTIAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST

In accordance with Section 8-13-700(B) of the S.C. Code, I abstained from voting on the below referenced Part, Section and/or amendment because of a potential conflict of interest and wish to have my recusal noted for the record in the House Journal of this date:
Part IA, Part IB, and Part II, Section 83

The reason for abstaining on the above referenced legislation is:
A potential conflict of interest may exist in that an economic interest of myself, an immediate family member, or an individual or business with which I am associated may be affected in violation of S.C. Code Section 8-13-700(B).

A potential conflict may exist under S.C. Code Section 8-13-745(C) because a contract for goods or services may be entered into within the next year with an agency, commission, board, department, or other entity funded through the general appropriation bill by myself, an individual with whom I am associated in partnership with or a business or partnership in which I have a greater than 5% interest.

Rep. Terry Alexander
