A HOUSE RESOLUTION

TO RECOGNIZE AND COMMEND THE HONORABLE HARRY B. "CHIP" LIMEHOUSE III OF CHARLESTON COUNTY FOR HIS DEDICATED SERVICE IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ON BEHALF OF HIS CONSTITUENTS IN DISTRICT 110 AND THE CITIZENS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, AND TO WISH HIM MUCH SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS IN ALL HIS FUTURE ENDEAVORS.

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives learned with sincere regret that Chip Limehouse will depart from the House of Representatives at the conclusion of his current term; and

Whereas, born in Charleston on August 8, 1962, he is the son of Harry B. "Buck" Limehouse, Jr., and Frances Fennell Limehouse; and

Whereas, a loyal Gamecock, Chip attended the University of South Carolina, where he received a bachelor's degree in political science in 1985. He later returned to Charleston to join the family business, Limehouse Properties, where he continues to serves as a real estate broker and executive; and

Whereas, inspired by his father's commitment to public service, Chip became interested in politics at an early age. In 1984, he became a volunteer coordinator for the historically successful reelection campaign of President Ronald Reagan and Vice President George Bush. He later served as a legislative aide to United States Senator Strom Thurmond, as a member of the Public Safety Coordinating Council, the Hunley Commission, and the Charleston County Aviation Authority; and

Whereas, a member of the Association of Realtors, Chip Limehouse has served his profession on the legislative committee of the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors since 1994; and

Whereas, when away from his public service and business commitments, Chip enjoys spending time with his beloved son, Chase Alexander Limehouse, and daughter, Eliza Devereaux Limehouse. A sportsman with a great love of horses and polo, he is deeply involved in his community as a member of St. Michael's Episcopal Church and the Hibernian Society, and as a life member of the East Cooper Republican Men's Club; and

Whereas, Representative Limehouse has faithfully served the citizens of District 110 in Charleston County in the House of Representatives since 1995, during which time he has served on the Ways and Means Committee as its first vice chair and as the chair of both its Transportation, Regulatory and Cultural Subcommittee and its Higher Education Subcommittee, and as such, has made a lasting impact on higher education in the State. As the sponsor of legislation that created the South Carolina Transportation Infrastructure Bank, on which he presently serves, Chip Limehouse also leaves a mark on the development of the highway system in South Carolina; and

Whereas, a friend of taxpayers during his long tenure, he served on the Joint Bond Review Committee Special Property Tax Ad Hoc Subcommittee and on the Transportation Ad Hoc Committee; and

Whereas, Representative Limehouse worked tirelessly to promote and pass legislation to protect the state's most vulnerable citizens: children, the elderly, and victims of crime. He was instrumental in the passage of South Carolina's Amber Alert highway notification system and the Violent Sexual Predator Act and has promoted anti-bullying legislation; and

Whereas, recognized widely for his public service, Limehouse was honored as the Legislator of the Year in 1995 by the National Solid Waste Management Association, and has received honorary doctorates from the College of Charleston, the Medical University of South Carolina, and The Citadel; and

Whereas, the members of the House of Representatives will miss the impassioned service that Chip Limehouse, their cherished friend and respected colleague, has given to the House of Representatives, and hope that he will enjoy deep fulfillment in the years to come. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and commend the Honorable Harry B. "Chip" Limehouse III of Charleston County for his dedicated service in the House of Representatives on behalf of his constituents in District 110 and the citizens of South Carolina, and wish him much success and happiness in all his future endeavors.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to the Honorable Harry B. "Chip" Limehouse III.
