Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:

SECTION    1.    Section 61-6-120(C) of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 253 of 2014, is further amended to read:

"(C)(1)     Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (A), the department may issue a license so long as the provisions of subsection (A) are met in regards to schools, and so long as any playground or church, school, or playground located within the parameters affirmatively states that it does not object to the issuance of a license. This subsection only applies to a permit for on-premises consumption of alcoholic liquor.

(2)    Any applicant seeking to utilize the provisions of this subsection must provide a statement from the decision-making body of the owner of the playground or from the decision-making body of the local church, from the local school board of the local school, or from the decision-making body of the owner of the playground stating that it does not object to the issuance of the specific license sought. If more than one playground or church, school, or playground is located within the parameters set forth in subsection (A), the applicant must provide the statement from all playgrounds and churches, schools, or playgrounds.

(3)    The department may promulgate regulations necessary to implement the provisions of this subsection."

SECTION    2.    This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
