Indicates Matter Stricken
Indicates New Matter

The House assembled at 12:00 noon.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by Rev. Charles E. Seastrunk, Jr., as follows:

Our thought for today is from 1 Corinthians 10-13: "God is faithful and He will not let you be tested beyond your strength, but with the testing He will provide the way out."

Let us pray. Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your love, grace, and care for us. Continue Your blessings and grace to be upon these Representatives and staff as they strive to do the necessary work for the people of this State as they work and live in freedom. Give them strength to carry out their duties. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who contribute to this great cause. Bless and protect our defenders of freedom and first responders as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, hear our prayers. Amen.

Pursuant to Rule 6.3, the House of Representatives was led in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America by the SPEAKER.

Rep. ATWATER explained the amendment.

POINT OF ORDER

Rep. ALLISON raised the Point of Order that under Rule 9.3, Amendment No. 2 to H. 3195 was out of order in that it was not germane to the Bill.

Rep. ATWATER spoke against the Point.

Rep. ALLISON spoke in favor of the Point.

The SPEAKER stated that H. 3195 was a simple Bill to recognize June 19th of each year as "Sickle Cell Day in South Carolina" and bring attention to sickle cell disease as a public health priority.

Amendment No. 2, on the other hand, requires South Carolina public schools to observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Memorial Day as legal holidays and that would prohibit school districts from using these two holidays as makeup days in the event of regular school days being canceled due to bad weather, natural disaster, or emergency.

The SPEAKER stated that House Rule 9.3 and House Precedents were clear that an amendment must have the same substantial effect or impact as the bill it seeks to amend, and the amendment cannot go beyond the scope of the bill.

In this situation Amendment No. 2 changed the scheduling of makeup days for public schools and went far beyond the purpose of creating a sickle cell disease recognition day.

The SPEAKER sustained the Point of Order and ruled the Amendment to be non-germane.

Rep. ATWATER explained the Bill.

The question then recurred to the passage of the Bill.

The yeas and nays were taken resulting as follows:

/ (2)   A request for a contested case hearing for an agency order stays the order. A request for a contested case hearing for an order to revoke or suspend a license stays the revocation or suspension. A request for a contested case hearing for a decision to renew a license for an ongoing activity stays the renewed license, the previous license remaining in effect pending completion of administrative review. A request for a contested case hearing for a decision to issue a new license stays all actions for which the license is a prerequisite; from an agency decision granting a license, for a decision to renew a license for an ongoing activity, for an order to revoke, enforce, or suspend a license, or challenging the amount of fines or penalties stays the license, license renewal, order, fine or penalty for ninety days and, if a request for preliminary injunctive relief is filed with the Administrative Law Court, until an order granting or denying preliminary injunctive relief is issued by the Administrative Law Court, at which time the stay is lifted; provided however, that matters not affected by the request may not be stayed by the filing of the request. If the request is filed for a subsequent license related to issues substantially similar to those considered in a previously licensed matter, the license may not be automatically stayed by the filing of the request. If the requesting party asserts in the request that the issues are not substantially similar to those considered in a previously licensed matter, then the license must be stayed until further order of the Administrative Law Court. Requests for contested case hearings challenging only the amount of fines or penalties must be deemed considered not to affect those portions of such orders imposing substantive requirements.     /
