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

SECTION    1.    The Public Service Commission shall not hold a hearing on the merits for a docket in which requests were made pursuant to the Base Load Review Act before November 1, 2018; however, the Public Service Commission may hold an administrative or procedural hearing for such a docket prior to a hearing on the merits.

SECTION    3.    This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
