TO APPROVE REGULATIONS OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA HUMAN AFFAIRS COMMISSION, RELATING TO INVESTIGATION AND PRODUCTION OF EVIDENCE, DESIGNATED AS REGULATION DOCUMENT NUMBER 4677, PURSUANT TO THE PROVISIONS OF ARTICLE 1, CHAPTER 23, TITLE 1 OF THE 1976 CODE.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The regulations of the South Carolina Human Affairs Commission, relating to Investigation and Production of Evidence, designated as Regulation Document Number 4677, and submitted to the General Assembly pursuant to the provisions of Article 1, Chapter 23, Title 1 of the 1976 Code, are approved.
SECTION 2. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Regulation 65-3 governs procedures for Agency investigations based on complaints of unlawful conduct under the Human Affairs Law, but revisions are needed to shorten the duration of an investigation and to provide consistency in Agency responses to requests for information by parties to a matter. Additionally, a citation error needs correcting, and references to the agency's subpoena powers should be clearer.
Notice of Drafting for the proposed amended regulation was published in the State Register on September 23, 2016.
