Part 1B section 73 X91 - STATEWIDE REVENUE Page 550
2006-2007 Appropriation Act


73.1. (SR: Year End Expenditures) Unless specifically authorized herein, the appropriations provided in Part I of this Act as ordinary expenses of the State Government shall lapse on July 31, 2007. State agencies are required to submit all current fiscal year input documents to the Comptroller General's Office by July 17, 2007. Appropriations for Permanent Improvements, now outstanding or hereafter provided, shall lapse at the end of the second fiscal year in which such appropriations were provided, unless definite commitments shall have been made, with the approval of the State Budget and Control Board and Joint Bond Review Committee, toward the accomplishment of the purposes for which the appropriations were provided. Appropriations for other specific purposes aside from ordinary operating expenses, now outstanding or hereafter provided, shall lapse at the end of the second fiscal year in which such appropriations were provided, unless definite commitments shall have been made, with the approval of the State Budget and Control Board, toward the accomplishment of the purposes for which the appropriations were provided.

73.2. (SR: Law Enforcement Funding) (A) In addition to all other assessments and surcharges, during the current fiscal year, a twenty-five dollar surcharge is also levied on all fines, forfeitures, escheatments, or other monetary penalties imposed in the general sessions court or in magistrates' or municipal court for misdemeanor traffic offenses or for nontraffic violations. No portion of the surcharge may be waived, reduced, or suspended. (B)(1) The revenue collected pursuant to subsection (A) must be retained by the jurisdiction, which heard or processed the case and paid to the State Treasurer within thirty days after receipt. The State Treasurer may retain the actual cost associated with the collection of this surcharge not to exceed $40,000. The State Treasurer shall allocate and transfer quarterly the remaining revenue as follows: 37.75% of these funds quarterly to the circuit solicitors in the manner hereinafter provided, 22.10% to the Department of Juvenile Justice for the Coastal Evaluation Center, for Assault Prevention, and other federal lawsuit related expenses, 15% to the State Law Enforcement Division for its general purposes, 15% to the Department of Corrections for its general purposes, 3.75% to the Attorney General's Office for its general purposes, 3.75% to the Judicial Department for its general purposes, 1.55% to the Department of Natural Resources for statewide police responsibilities, 1% to the Office of Indigent Defense, Division of Appellate Defense for its general purposes, and 0.10% to the Forestry Commission for statewide police responsibilities. The State Treasurer shall transmit the portion of these funds earmarked for the solicitors' offices to the Prosecution Coordination Commission which shall then apportion these funds among the circuit solicitors of this State on a per capita basis equal to the population in that circuit compared to the population of the State as a whole based on the most recent official United States census. The funds shall be used for the operation of the solicitors' offices, and the solicitor may use a portion of those funds to provide for drug courts in their judicial circuits. (2) The funds received by solicitors' offices pursuant to this paragraph in part are to replace the funds received by solicitors in the same year from judicial circuits state support pursuant to Paragraph 33.3 Judicial Circuits State Support. As a result and notwithstanding the provisions of item (1) above, the State Treasurer shall withhold funds received under this paragraph for the benefit of the solicitors and transmit seventy-five percent of the aforementioned funds to the Highway Patrol Division (DPS) to be used for equipment, vehicle purchases, and associated vehicle expenditures, to include maintenance and gasoline, for the Highway Patrol and twenty-five percent of the aforementioned funds to the Judicial Department until such time as these deposits equal the amounts disbursed or to be disbursed to the solicitors under Paragraph 33.3 Judicial Circuits State Support. Thereafter, any such funds received for the benefit of the solicitors shall be disbursed to them in the manner required in item (1) above. (C) It is the intent of the General Assembly that the amounts generated by this paragraph for use by the solicitors' offices shall be in addition to any amounts presently being provided by the county for these services and may not be used to supplant funding already allocated for these services by the county. (D) The State Treasurer may request the State Auditor to examine the financial records of any jurisdiction which he believes is not timely transmitting the funds required to be paid to the State Treasurer pursuant to subsection (B). The State Auditor is further authorized to conduct these examinations and the local jurisdiction is required to participate in and cooperate fully with the examination.

73.3. (SR: Excess Debt Service Funds Carry Forward) The State Treasurer's Office is directed to carry forward $3,507,254 of Excess Debt Service funds from FY 2005-06 and credit such amount to the General Fund in FY 2006-07 to be used as a source to support appropriations. Any remaining Excess Debt Service funds from FY 2005-06 may be carried forward and expended for debt service purposes in FY 2006-07.

73.4. (SR: Court Fee) The Family and Circuit Court filing fee shall be increased by $50. This new revenue shall be allocated as follows:

Judicial Department- $3,500,000;

Commission on Indigent Defense, Defense of Indigents per Capita- $750,000;

Department of Probation, Parole & Pardon Services- $582,000;

Prosecution Coordination Commission- $225,000; and

Commission on Indigent Defense, Division of Appellate Defense- $93,000.

One hundred percent of the $50 increase must go to the above mentioned agencies to retain, expend and carry forward.

73.5. (SR: Titling of Real Property) It is the intent of the General Assembly to establish a comprehensive central property and office facility management process to plan for the needs of state government agencies and to achieve maximum efficiency and economy in the use of state owned or state leased real properties. The Budget and Control Board is directed to identify all state owned properties whether titled in the name of the state or an agency or department, and all agencies and departments of state government are upon request to provide the Board all documents related to the title and acquisition of the real properties that are occupied or used by the agency or titled in the name of the agency. Except for any properties where the Board determines title should not be in the name of the State because the properties are subject to reverter clauses or other restraints on the property, or where the Board determines the state would be best served by not receiving title, and with the exception of properties, highways and roadways owned by the Department of Transportation, title of any property held by or acquired by a state agency or department shall be titled in the name of the state under the control of the Budget and Control Board. Titling in the name of the state shall not affect the operation or use of real property by an agency.

This provision applies to all state agencies and departments except: institutions of higher learning; the Public Service Authority; the Ports Authority; the South Carolina Division of Public Railways; the MUSC Hospital Authority; the Myrtle Beach Air Force Redevelopment Authority; the Department of Transportation; and the Charleston Naval Complex Redevelopment Authority.

This provision is comprehensive and supersedes any conflicting provisions concerning title and acquisition and disposition of state owned real property whether in permanent law, temporary law or by provision elsewhere in this Act.

The Budget and Control Board is directed to provide to the Department of Education, funds equal to the amount realized from the sale of the Greenville Halton Road Bus Shop property for school bus maintenance shop relocations, construction, and shop equipment.

73.6. (SR: Marriage Penalty Relief) Except as otherwise provided, where reference is made to Section 12-6-40(A) of the 1976 Code for purposes of Title 12 of the 1976 Code, any tax year that ends in 2004 or 2005 or for estate tax purposes any decedent dying in 2004 or 2005, 'Internal Revenue Code' means the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended through December 31, 2003, and includes the effective date provisions contained in it.

For purposes of Sections 63 and 179 of the Internal Revenue Code, the amendments made by Sections 103 and 202 of the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003, P.L. 108-27 (May 28, 2003) are only effective for taxable years beginning in 2004 and 2005.

73.7. (SR: DMV Cash Surplus) The Department of Motor Vehicles shall transfer $4,000,000 to the State General Fund from DMV Operating Subfund 3264.

In order to provide maximum flexibility to maintain critical programs, the department may, in lieu of the specific account identified above, opt to transfer an equal amount of funds from any agency earmarked or restricted account designated as "special revenue funds" as defined by the Comptroller General's records for this purpose.

The above listed amount is transferred to the general fund of the state, and by this provision, this transfer is deemed to have occurred and, notwithstanding any other provision of law, these general fund revenues are available for appropriation as provided in this act. Any restrictions concerning specific utilization of these funds are lifted for the specified fiscal year.

73.8. (SR: Tobacco Settlement) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, and contingent upon the approval of the Tobacco Settlement Revenue Management Authority and parties to the trust agreement, the State Treasurer shall transfer an amount equal to $8,000,000 from the unrestricted taxable proceeds portion of the principal of the Healthcare Tobacco Settlement Trust Fund established pursuant to Section 11-11-170(B)(1) of the 1976 Code to the Department of Health and Human Services to be expended for Medicaid. The State Treasurer is authorized and directed to transfer $425,000 to the Office of the Attorney General from the Operating Contingency Account of the Tobacco Settlement Management Authority for the further enforcement of Chapter 47 of Title 11, The Tobacco Escrow Fund Act, which will protect the payments to the State under the Master Settlement Agreement.

Entities that receive funding through item (95) subitems a) through k) listed under the Budget and Control Board are required to submit a report to the Budget and Control Board, the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, and the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee which contains a complete accounting for the expenditure of the funds received. Reports shall be transmitted no later than 90 days after the close of the fiscal year in which funds were distributed.

Unexpended funds appropriated pursuant to this provision may be carried forward to succeeding fiscal years and expended for the same purposes.

73.15. (A) There is created in the State Treasury a fund separate and distinct from the general fund of the State, the Capital Reserve Fund, and all other funds entitled the Contingency Reserve Fund. All general fund revenues accumulated in a fiscal year in excess of general appropriations and supplemental appropriations must be credited to this fund. Revenues credited to this fund in a fiscal year may be appropriated by the General Assembly in its regular session in the year following the close of the applicable fiscal year. Revenues in this fund may be appropriated only for the purposes provided in subsection (B).

(B)(1) If the balance in the general reserve fund established pursuant to Article III, Section 36 of the Constitution of this State and Section 11-11-310 of the 1976 Code is less than the required balance, there must be appropriated to it all amounts in the Contingency Reserve Fund up to the total necessary to replenish the general reserve fund. This amount does not replace or supplant the minimum replenishment amount otherwise required to be made to the general reserve fund.

(2) After the appropriation of amounts required pursuant to item (1) of this subsection, any remaining balance may be appropriated for or used to offset revenue reductions for:

(a) infrastructure improvements; and for purposes of this item, infrastructure includes, but is not limited to, fixed transportation facilities, to include highway, rail, water, and air, and the basic facilities, services, and installations needed for the functioning of government, to include water, sewer, and public sector communications;

(b) school buildings;

(c) school buses; and

(d) expenses incurred by this State as a result of natural or other disasters declared by the President of the United States. Should the General Assembly not be in session during a declared disaster, the Budget and Control Board may, by unanimous approval of its members, utilize the Contingency Reserve Fund to underwrite state government costs directly associated with the disaster. Eligible costs include those costs associated with public safety personnel and equipment as well as funding match requirements with the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

(3) Appropriations from the Fund must be made by means of a joint resolution.
