SECTION 1. Chapter 13, Title 8 of the S.C. Code is amended by adding:

 Section 8-13-1349. A candidate or public official is prohibited from using campaign funds for dependent care.

In addition, campaign funds may only be used to defray dependent care expenses if the dependent care is given by a provider that is licensed in this State to provide the type of care needed by the candidate's or public official's immediate family member.

SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
