The House assembled at 10:00 a.m.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by Rev. Charles E. Seastrunk, Jr., as follows:

Our thought for today is from Micah 7:18B: "He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in showing clemency."

Let us pray. Open our ears, Creator, to hear the voice of Your delight in all You have made. Forgive us when we stray from Your presence and hurt other people. Make us know Your delight in giving us second chances. We give You thanks for these men and women who give of their time, talents, and selfless service. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who contribute to this great cause. Protect our first responders and those who defend us at home and abroad. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our men and women who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.

S. 234--AMENDED AND ORDERED TO THIRD READING

The following Bill was taken up:

S. 234 (Word version) -- Senator Massey: A BILL TO AMEND SECTION 44-61-160(A) OF THE 1976 CODE, RELATING TO THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF THE DATA COLLECTED OR PREPARED BY EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES, TO PROVIDE THAT THE IDENTITIES OF PATIENTS AND EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIANS MENTIONED, REFERENCED, OR OTHERWISE APPEARING IN INFORMATION AND DATA COLLECTED OR PREPARED BY EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES ARE SUBJECT TO SUBPOENA IN ANY ADMINISTRATIVE, CIVIL, OR CRIMINAL PROCEEDING.

Rep. HERBKERSMAN proposed the following Amendment No. 1 to S. 234 (COUNCIL\CM\234C001.GT.CM17), which was adopted:
Amend the bill, as and if amended, by adding the following appropriately numbered SECTION:
/SECTION ___.   A.   Whereas, the Department of Health and Human Services issues personal emergency response system (PERS) devices to select Medicaid recipients pursuant to a Medicaid Home and Community-based waiver; and
Whereas, the current PERS device the department issues provides recipients with twenty-four hour monitoring and live phone contact for emergencies; and
Whereas, although PERS emergency response services are intended to respond to true emergency situations, it is not uncommon for a recipient to be transported by ambulance to a hospital emergency room for a nonemergency condition when an emergency response is the only available PERS option; and
Whereas, at many times in our communities there are outbreaks of dangerous and highly contagious diseases and conditions and sending a Medicaid recipient to the emergency room for a nonemergency condition can potentially expose the recipient, who likely is a high health risk, to potentially life threatening conditions and diseases. Having the ability to assess nonemergency situations by having access to a nurse triage service is an invaluable health consideration for Medicaid recipients as well as for the State; and
Whereas, it has been demonstrated that if a person is able to speak with a health care professional who can medically assess the person's situation and provide assistance, the person is less likely to utilize emergency room care and more likely to be able to manage a nonemergency situation in the home; and
Whereas, some PERS devices provide twenty-four hour live phone access to experienced nursing personnel, comparable in cost to emergency response PERS devices, which allow a person to consult with a nurse about the person's medical concern, possible solutions, and available options, including in-home management of the situation, if appropriate, likely producing a more efficient and effective result.
Article 1, Chapter 6, Title 44 of the 1976 Code is amended by adding:

"Section 44-6-55.   (A)(1)   The Department of Health and Human Services shall issue, pursuant to its Medicaid Home and Community-based waiver, Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) devices to Medicaid recipients that include, in addition to emergency response services, unlimited twenty-four hour, seven-day a week live phone contact with experienced registered nurses for triage services.

(2)   A PERS nurse triage call center must be accredited and must be separate from the PERS emergency response call center.

(B)   A PERS device, as provided for in subsection (A), must have a wireless radio transmitter and a console that is cellular and does not require a traditional land line.

(C)   A PERS device that includes nurse triage services also must:

(1)   comply with the requirements of Federal Communications Commission rules, 47 C.F.R. Part 68; and

(2)   be Underwriters Laboratory or Equipment Testing Laboratories-approved as a health care signaling product."

B.     The Department of Health and Human Services shall apply for any waiver necessary under the department's Medicaid Home and Community-based waiver to implement the provisions of this act.

C.     This act applies to Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) devices initially issued by the Department of Health and Human Services to Medicaid recipients, pursuant to the department's Medicaid Home and Community-based waiver, on or after the waiver's effective date and to Medicaid recipients for whom it is necessary to replace their previously issued PERS devices on or after the waiver's effective date. /

S. 463--AMENDED AND ORDERED TO THIRD READING

The following Bill was taken up:

S. 463 (Word version) -- Senators Cromer and Gambrell: A BILL TO AMEND SECTION 38-1-20, AS AMENDED, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO DEFINITIONS USED IN TITLE 38, SO AS TO INCLUDE CERTAIN FORMS OF DISABILITY INSURANCE IN THE DEFINITION FOR THE TERM "SURPLUS LINES INSURANCE".

Rep. RYHAL proposed the following Amendment No. 1 to S. 463 (COUNCIL\CZ\463C001.NBD.CZ17), which was adopted:
Amend the bill, as and if amended, by inserting an appropriately numbered SECTION to read:
/   SECTION   2.   Section 38-43-100 of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 194 of 2016, is further amended to read:

"Section 38-43-100.   (A)   Business may not be done by the applicant except following issuance of a producer's license, and the license may not be issued until the director or his designee has determined that the applicant is qualified as an insurance producer, generally, and is particularly qualified for the line of business in which the applicant proposes to engage. The department shall promulgate regulations setting forth qualifying standards of producers as to all lines of business and shall require the producer applicant to stand a written examination. For the purpose of interstate reciprocity, the department shall identify by bulletin which limited lines insurance are approved in South Carolina and which are exempt from examination. A bank, finance company, or other company handling credit transactions operating in this State and utilizing one or more credit life or accident and health or credit property producers in a particular geographical area who are licensed without having taken the written examination is required to have readily available at least one credit life or accident and health or credit property producer to answer customers' questions concerning credit life, credit accident and health insurance, or credit property, or any combination of these.

(B)   A resident individual applying for an insurance producer license shall pass an examination. The examination must test the knowledge of the individual concerning the lines of authority for which application is made, the duties and responsibilities of an insurance producer, and the insurance laws and regulations of this State. The examination required by this section must be developed and conducted under regulations prescribed by the director or his designee.

(C)   The director or his designee may make arrangements, including contracting with an outside testing service, for administering licensing examinations.

(D)   Each individual applying for a licensing examination shall remit a nonrefundable examination fee as required by the licensing exam administrator.

(E)   An individual who fails to appear for the examination as scheduled or fails to pass the examination, shall reapply for an examination and remit all required fees and forms before being rescheduled for another examination.

(F)   A person applying for a resident insurance producer license or a person applying on behalf of the applicant shall make application to the director or his designee on the Uniform Application and declare under penalty of refusal, suspension, or revocation of the license that the statements made in the application are true, correct, and complete to the best of the applicant's knowledge and belief. Before approving the application, the director or his designee shall find that the applicant:

(1)   is at least eighteen years of age;

(2)   is a person of good moral character and has not been convicted of a felony or any crime involving moral turpitude within the last ten years that is a ground for denial, suspension, or revocation as provided for in Section 38-43-130;

(3)   has paid the fees provided for in Section 38-43-80; and

(4)   has successfully passed the examination or examinations for the line or lines of insurance for which the person has applied.

(5)   Effective January 1, 2017, Before a license is issued to an applicant or is renewed permitting him to act as a resident producer, the applicant shall comply with the licensing and renewal requirements set for in this section and by regulation. In addition to those licensing requirements, the applicant shall:

(a)   furnish a complete set of his fingerprints to the director or his designee; and

(b)   undergo a state criminal records check, supported by his fingerprints, by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) and a national criminal records check, supported by his fingerprints, by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The results of these criminal records checks must be reported to the department. SLED and the FBI are authorized to retain the fingerprints for use in identification purposes including, but not limited to, unsolved latent prints. SLED and the FBI are further authorized to provide the department with current and future information regarding fingerprints stored including arrest, convictions, dispositions, warrants, and other information available to the FBI including civil and criminal information. The department shall keep all information pursuant to this section privileged, in accordance with applicable state and federal guidelines. The cost associated with the criminal history records checks must be borne by the applicant. The applicant's fingerprints must be certified by a law enforcement officer authorized by SLED.; and

(c)   provide a complete set of fingerprints and the required fees and information in accordance with this subsection. Failure to provide the complete set of fingerprints with the required fees constitutes grounds for denial of an application for licensure; however, the director may waive the fingerprinting requirements of this subsection if it is impossible for the applicant to provide fingerprints due to a medically certified physical injury.

(G)(1)   An applicant for renewal of a current resident insurance producer license is exempt from the requirement set forth in subsection (F)(5) if the applicant complies with the requirements of this section and
(a)   has previously provided and has on file with the appropriate agency of the State an accessible, current, complete and legible set of fingerprints submitted as part of an earlier application for a license or for renewal of a license which was granted or approved; and
(b)   all licenses issued to the applicant by the department are in good standing on the date of the subsequent application.

(2)   A resident producer who has allowed the license to lapse for failure to comply with the continuing education requirements set forth in Section 38-43-106 is not required to submit new fingerprint records if the applicant:

(a)   has applied to reinstate the same license within six months from the compliance deadline;

(b)   has met the continuing insurance education requirements; and

(c)   has paid a penalty fee set forth by the director or his designee in full.

(3)   The director may require a complete set of fingerprints and payment of all applicable fingerprint processing fees from an applicant for licensure or renewal if the previously submitted set of fingerprints is not usable for obtaining a criminal history record check for any reason.

(G)(H)   The individual's producer license must contain the licensee's name, address, personal identification number, the date of issuance, the line or lines of authority, and other information the director or his designee considers necessary.

(H)(I)   An agency acting as an insurance producer is required to obtain an insurance producer license. Application must be made using the Uniform Business Entity Application. Before approving the application, the director or his designee shall find that:

(1)   the agency has paid the fees as prescribed by Section 38-43-80; and

(2)   the agency has designated a licensed producer or other person responsible for the business entity's compliance with the insurance laws, rules, and regulations of this State.

(I)(J)   The director or his designee may require any documents reasonably necessary to verify the information contained in an application.

(J)(K)   The agency's license must contain the licensee's name, address, personal identification number, the date of issuance, and other information the director or his designee considers necessary.

(K)(L)   Each insurer that sells, solicits, or negotiates any form of credit insurance shall provide to each individual whose duties include selling, soliciting, or negotiating credit insurance, a program of instruction that has been filed with the director or his designee."

STATEMENT FOR THE HOUSE JOURNAL
ABSTENTION FROM VOTING

The Committee on Judiciary proposed the following Amendment No. 1 to S. 334 (COUNCIL\JH\334C001.DKA.JH17), which was ruled out of order:
Amend the bill, as and if amended, by adding appropriately numbered SECTIONS to read:
/ SECTION __.   A.   The General Assembly affirms its police power to regulate the business of retail liquor sales in the manner and to the extent allowed by law including, but not limited to, Article VIII-A, Section 1 of the South Carolina Constitution. This police power includes regulating the number and localities of retail dealer licenses that a person may be issued, a process that affects the health, safety, and morals of the state. Regulation of the number and localities of retail dealer licenses prevents monopolies and avoids problems associated with indiscriminate price cutting, excessive advertising of alcoholic products, and concentration of retail liquor stores in close proximity. Accordingly, in order to (1) protect the health, safety, and morals of this state; (2) prevent indiscriminate price cutting, excessive advertising of alcoholic products, and concentration of retail liquor stores in close proximity; (3) provide for the continuation of control and orderly processing by the state over the number and locations of retail liquor stores; and (4) ensure compliance with other laws governing the sales of alcoholic beverages, the General Assembly authorizes the planned and incremental growth of retail dealer licenses as provided in this SECTION of this act.
B.   Section 61-6-140 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:

"Section 61-6-140.   (A)   To provide for an orderly and incremental growth in retail dealer licenses, the issuance of retail dealer licenses must be governed pursuant to the following requirements:

(1)(a)   Until January 1, 2018, no more than three retail dealer licenses may be issued to one licensee, and the licensee must be eligible for a license for each store pursuant to Section 61-6-110.

(b)   The limitation of no more than three retail dealer licenses to one licensee does not apply to a person having an interest in retail liquor stores as of July 1, 1978. Additional retail dealer licenses may be issued to that person as provided in this section.

(2)   Beginning January 2, 2018, no more than four retail dealer licenses may be issued to one licensee, and the licensee must be eligible for each license for each store pursuant to Section 61-6-110.

(3)   Beginning January 2, 2019, no more than five retail dealer licenses may be issued to one licensee, and the licensee must be eligible for each license for each store pursuant to Section 61-6-110.

(4)   Beginning January 2, 2021, no more than six retail dealer licenses may be issued to one licensee, and the licensee must be eligible for each license for each store pursuant to Section 61-6-110.

(5)   Beginning January 2, 2023, no more than eight retail dealer licenses may be issued to one licensee, and the licensee must be eligible for each license for each store pursuant to Section 61-6-110.

(6)   Beginning July 1, 2025, no more than nine retail dealer licenses may be issued to one licensee, and the licensee must be eligible for each license for each store pursuant to Section 61-6-110.

(B)   No more than three Retail dealer licenses may be issued for the use of one corporation, association, partnership, or limited partnership, pursuant to the provisions of this section. A corporation having the use of a retail dealer license that is owned by another corporation is considered to be holding the retail dealer license for the use of the owning corporation.

(C)   The department may not grant or issue a new retail dealer license if the proposed place of business is within five hundred feet of an existing retail dealer licensee. For purposes of this section, the distance between the licensed premises of the existing business and the premises of the proposed business must be computed by a straight line measured between the two locations. This restriction does not apply to the renewal of a retail dealer license. Nothing in this subsection may be construed to abrogate or affect the provisions of any lawful ordinance, regulations or resolution, which are more restrictive than the provisions of this subsection."
C.   Section 61-6-150 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:

"Section 61-6-150.   No person, directly or indirectly, individually or as a member of a partnership or an association, as a member or stockholder of a corporation, or as a relative to a person by blood or marriage within the second degree, may have any interest whatsoever in a retail liquor store licensed under this section except the three stores covered by his the person's retail dealer's licenses, as provided for in Section 61-6-140. The prohibitions in this section do not apply to a person having an interest in retail liquor stores on July 1, 1978."
SECTION   __.   Section 61-6-1540 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:

"Section 61-6-1540.   (A)   Except as provided in subsection (B), no other goods, wares, or merchandise may be kept or stored in or sold in or from a retail alcoholic liquor store or place of business, and no place of amusement may be maintained in or in connection with the store. However, retail dealers may sell:

(1)   drinking glassware and barware packaged together with alcoholic liquors if the glassware and alcoholic liquors are packaged together by the wholesaler or producer in packaging provided by the producer;

(2)   nonalcoholic items, other than beer or wine, packaged together with alcoholic liquors if the nonalcoholic items and alcoholic liquors are in sealed packages and are packaged together by the alcoholic liquor producer at its place of business; and

(3)   nonalcoholic mixers and nonalcoholic cocktail condiments consumed in conjunction with alcoholic liquors;

(4)   beverage accessories and cooling accessories used in preparation of alcoholic liquors; and

(5)   lottery tickets under the provisions of Chapter 150 of Title 59.

(B)   Retail dealers licensed pursuant to the provisions of this article may sell all wines in the stores or places of business covered by their respective licenses, whether declared alcoholic or nonalcoholic or nonintoxicating by the laws of this State. Wines containing more than sixteen percent of alcohol by volume may be sold only in licensed alcoholic liquor stores or in establishments licensed to sell and permit consumption of alcoholic liquors by the drink. The provisions of this section do not amend, alter, or modify the taxes imposed on wines or the collection and enforcement of these taxes.

(C)   As used in this section:

(1)   'Nonalcoholic mixers' include, but are not limited to, powdered drink mixes, packaged drink mixes, tonics, club sodas, seltzer waters, and colas;

(2)   'Nonalcoholic cocktail condiments' include, but are not limited to, bitters, ginger beers, lemon juices, lime juices, grenadines, cream coconut, olives, olive juices, rimming salts and sugars, wild hibiscus flowers, and syrups;

(3)   'Beverage accessories' include, but are not limited to, shakers, jiggers, muddlers, mixing pitchers, atomizers, bar knives, peelers, decanters, flasks, and martini picks;

(4)   'Cooling accessories' include, but are not limited to, ice molds, whiskey stones, ice picks, ice tongs, ice scoops, and ice buckets."
SECTION   __.   Section 61-4-960(A)(11), (12), and (13) of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 36 of 2013, is further amended to read:

"(11)   a sampling may not be offered for more than four hours; and

(12)   a retailer, pursuant to this section, may not offer more than one sampling per day; and

(13)   the tasting may not be held in conjunction with a tasting in a retail alcoholic liquor store, pursuant to Section 61-6-1035, that is adjacent to and licensed in the same name of the retail permit authorizing the sale of beer."
SECTION   __.   If any section, subsection, paragraph, subparagraph, sentence, clause, phrase, or word of this act is for any reason held to be unconstitutional or invalid, such holding shall not affect the constitutionality or validity of the remaining portions of this act, the General Assembly hereby declaring that it would have passed this, and each and every section, subsection, paragraph, subparagraph, sentence, clause, phrase, and word thereof, irrespective of the fact that any one or more other sections, subsections, paragraphs, subparagraphs, sentences, clauses, phrases, or words hereof may be declared to be unconstitutional, invalid, or otherwise effective.
SECTION   __.   The General Assembly finds that all the provisions contained in this act relate to one subject as required by Section 17, Article III of the South Carolina Constitution in that each provision relates directly to, or in conjunction with, other sections to the subject of premises licensed to sell alcoholic liquors to consumers. The General Assembly further finds that a common purpose or relationship exists among the sections, representing a potential plurality but not disunity of topics, notwithstanding that reasonable minds might differ in identifying more than one topic contained in this act. /
Renumber sections to conform.
Amend title to conform.

Rep. DELLENEY explained the amendment.

POINT OF ORDER

Rep. CLARY raised the Point of Order that under the Rule 9.3 Amendment No. 1 was not germane to S. 334. Rep. CLARY stated that the Bill related solely to allowing the sale of alcoholic beverages at baseball complexes that host minor league baseball games and that the substantial effect of Amendment No. 1 went much further and concerned the number of retail licenses to sell alcohol that dealers may possess.
Rep. DELLENEY spoke against the Point of Order.
The SPEAKER stated that it was a close decision. However, the Amendment's substantial effect went far beyond the scope of the Bill. The SPEAKER also stated that he must follow the precedents of the House. He sustained the Point of Order and ruled Amendment No. 1 to be not germane.

Rep. HAYES spoke against the Bill.

Rep. DELLENEY moved to adjourn debate on the Bill.

Rep. DELLENEY proposed the following Amendment No. 12 to S. 334 (COUNCIL\CZ\334C049.NBD.CZ17), which was ruled out of order:
Amend the bill, as and if amended, by inserting an appropriately numbered SECTION to read:
/   SECTION   __.   The General Assembly finds that all the provisions contained in this act relate to one subject as required by Section 17, Article III of the South Carolina Constitution in that each provision relates directly to, or in conjunction with, other sections to the subject of premises licensed to sell alcoholic liquors to consumers. The General Assembly further finds that a common purpose or relationship exists among the sections, representing a potential plurality but not disunity of topics, notwithstanding that reasonable minds might differ in identifying more than one topic contained in this act.   /
Renumber sections to conform.
Amend title to conform.

Rep. DELLENEY explained the amendment.

POINT OF ORDER

Rep. G. M. SMITH raised the Point of Order that under the Rule 9.3 Amendment No. 12 was not germane to S. 334. Rep. DELLENEY spoke against the Point of Order.
The SPEAKER stated that Amendment No. 12 attempted to add a clause to the Bill that defined the Bills' subject matter. He stated that the Amendment defined the subject matter in a manner that went beyond the substantial effect and impact of the Bill. He sustained the Point of Order and ruled the amendment to be not germane.

The question then recurred to the passage of the Bill.
