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 1 Corinthians 1:25: "For God's foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God's weakness is stronger than human strength."

Let us pray. Holy and merciful Lord, grant these Representatives and staff a full measure of Your wisdom. Almighty God, guide them in the way of righteousness and peace so they will listen to Your call for togetherness and hear Your blessings cast upon them. Bless and protect our defenders of freedom and first responders as they protect us. Look in favor upon our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who contribute to the work being done here. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.

/   SECTION   1.   Article 1, Chapter 1, Title 6 of the 1976 Code is amended by adding:

"Section 6-1-180.   (A)   The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) shall create, prepare, maintain, and certify a report listing by name each South Carolina political subdivision it has determined to be in compliance with the requirements of Sections 17-13-170(E) and 23-3-1100. This report must be known as the Immigration Compliance Report (ICR). SLED also shall certify compliance with federal laws related to the presence of an unlawful person in the United States, as appropriate, as part of the ICR. SLED shall determine the appropriate documentation needed from each political subdivision to assure compliance. The ICR must be provided annually to the Governor, General Assembly, and State Treasurer by July first of each year.

(B)   Each political subdivision in the State shall provide all documentation and information requested by SLED on or before June first of each year. A political subdivision that claims an exemption from the ICR shall still provide its required ICR with information to the extent possible, and state in writing any claimed exemptions.

(C)   Beginning July 1, 2019, the State Treasurer is prohibited from disbursing funds appropriated by the General Assembly to the Local Government Fund to a political subdivision that has not been certified as compliant by SLED in the ICR.

(D)   SLED is authorized to conduct criminal investigations to verify certifications and ensure compliance by political subdivisions. Public officials, public employees, or law enforcement officials found to have intentionally and materially falsified compliance documentation to SLED in the ICR may be subject to prosecution for perjury as defined in Section 16-9-10(A)(2). Political subdivisions found to have intentionally and materially falsified compliance documentation to SLED in the ICR may not receive Local Government Fund appropriations for a minimum of three consecutive fiscal budget years, and must be subject to SLED oversight for the purpose of ensuring compliance with Sections 17-13-170(E) and 23-3-1100.

(E)   For purposes of this section, the term 'political subdivision' is defined as a local government entity eligible for funding from the Local Government Fund.
