  122.1.  The above appropriations shall be disbursed under the
direction of the State Treasurer.
  122.2.  Any agency of the State government responsible by law for
the collection of revenues or funds from any source to be annually
applied to payments of interest and principal on general obligation
bonds of the state shall remit such collections to the State
Treasurer for credit to the State's General Fund and which shall
constitute a reimbursement of appropriations made in this section.
  122.3.  The General Assembly takes note of the fact that the
foregoing figures reflect the estimated Debt Service Requirements
of Bonds of the State for Fiscal Year 1987-88.  It is not intended
that their inclusion in this Act shall prevent the issuance of
additional bonds pursuant to authorizations now or hereafter
enacted.
  122.4.  With the exception of the Agricultural College Stock and
Clemson Perpetual Stock, bonded debt of the State issued prior to
December 1, 1977, is supported by a pledge of a special fund
(derived from taxes and other sources) and in each instance the
monies derived from such taxes and other sources must be first
applied to the payment of principal and interest on the bonds prior
to the use for other purposes and that under the Statutes which
authorized such bonds, it is the ministerial duty of the
appropriate State officers and agencies to utilize the pledged
revenues for the payment of the principal and interest of such
bonds.  Under the decisions of the Supreme Court of South Carolina,
continuing appropriations have been made which cannot be diverted
until all of the principal and interest on the bonds have been
paid.
  122.5.  In the instance of debt incurred subsequent to December
1, 1977, the General Assembly, in obedience to Paragraph 4 of
Section 13 of Article X, has allocated on an annual basis
sufficient tax revenues to provide for the punctual payment of the
principal of and interest on such general obligation debt.
  122.6.  The Budget and Control Board, after review of the Joint
Bond Review Committee, is hereby authorized and directed to
regulate the starting date of the various projects approved for
funding through the issuance of Capital Improvement Bonds so as to
insure that the appropriations for debt service on such bonds, as
provided in this Section, shall be sufficient during Fiscal Year
1987-88.

  125.1.  The above revenues must be deposited in the General Fund
of the State, and notwithstanding the amounts appropriated in the
various items of this section, must be allocated and paid to the
counties and municipalities of the State in conformity with the
percentages or proportions of the revenues prescribed by law.  No
county or municipality shall be allocated an amount from any
revenue source in excess of 85.4 percent of the allocation
prescribed by law for Fiscal Year 1987-88.  Where a portion of one
county is annexed to another county, the total amount allocated to
the two counties shall not exceed the total which would be
allocated to the two counties separately.  However, the population
of the annexed areas shall be taken into consideration in
determining the proportionate share of the total allocation due to
each county.  Municipalities incorporated on or after July 1, 1987,
shall receive a share of the appropriate revenues in conformity
with the percentage or proportion of such revenues prescribed by
law.
  125.2.  In each statutory formula for the allotment of aid to
subdivisions where population is a factor, the most recent official
United States Census shall be used.
  125.3.  All distributions in this section, except Homestead
Reimbursement, Merchants Inventory Tax Reimbursement and Tax Forms
and Supplies Expense, shall be remitted to each subdivision by the
State Treasurer.
  125.4.  Notwithstanding the amount appropriated in this section
for "Homestead Exemption Reimbursement" there is hereby
appropriated whatever amount is necessary to reimburse the counties
and municipalities of the State for exemptions allowed in accord
with the provisions of law.
  125.5.  As of July 1, 1981, the counties of the State will be
relieved of contribution requirements for salary, fringe benefits
and travel reimbursement to local health departments.  The amount
of funds heretofore appropriated by counties for health department
salaries, fringe benefits and travel shall be determined by the
Commissioner of the Department of Health and Environmental Control
in consultation with the chief administrative official of the
respective counties, and shall be withheld from the quarterly
distribution of income tax to each county.  The amount appropriated
herein for Aid to Counties Income Tax, reflects this reduction. 
These funds and other state funds appropriated for county health
units may, based upon need, be utilized in either salary or travel
categories.  Each county shall provide all other operating expenses
of the local health department in an amount at least equal to that
appropriated for operations for each county in Fiscal Year 1981. 
In the event any county makes uniform reductions in appropriations
to all agencies or departments for maintenance and operations,
exclusive of salaries and fringe benefits, a like reduction shall
be made in funds appropriated for the operating expenses of the
local health department.  Any year-end lapsed monies which result
from this provision shall be returned to the appropriate county at
the end of each fiscal year.
  125.6.  Fifty (50%) percent of the amount appropriated in this
section for "Aid to Planning Districts" shall be divided
equally among the ten districts, the remaining fifty (50%) percent
to be allocated in proportion to the population of each district
according to the official United States Census for 1980.
  125.7.  Each planning district shall, prior to receipt of funds,
submit a plan for the expenditure of funds appropriated in this
section to the Budget and Control Board.  Within ninety (90) days
following the end of the fiscal year, each district shall submit to
the Budget and Control Board a copy of an audit of funds
appropriated in this section, to be performed by an independent
Certified Public Accountant.
  125.8.  The State Treasurer shall remit to each planning district
its share upon approval by the Budget and Control Board.
  125.9.  Of the amount appropriated under "Aid to Counties,
Tax Forms and Supplies Expense," 4 per capita, based on the
official United States Census for 1980, shall be remitted by the
Comptroller General to the several counties of the state and shall
be applied by the counties only on expense of printing tax forms
and supplies for county auditors, treasurers and tax collectors. 
Payment shall be made to each county treasurer in one annual
payment which shall be made as soon after the beginning of the
fiscal year as practical.
  125.10.  The amount appropriated herein for Aid to
Counties-Alcoholic Liquors Tax and Aid to Municipalities-Alcoholic
Liquors Tax has been reduced by a total of $117,545 for the purpose
of covering services rendered to counties and municipalities by the
Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations.  The State
Treasurer shall withhold this amount from the Alcoholic Liquors Tax
distribution with counties and municipalities sharing equally on a
quarterly basis.
  125.11.  Notwithstanding any funds appropriated in this Act for
inventory tax phase-out, there is hereby appropriated whatever
amount is necessary to fully reimburse all counties and
municipalities in regard to the phase-out of the inventory tax for
the use tax of year 1986.
  125.12.  Of the amount appropriated in this section for Clerks of
Court, Probate Judges, and County Sheriffs, $4,725 shall be
distributed by the Comptroller General to each County Treasurer,
which shall be used as a $1,575 salary supplement for each Clerk of
Court, Probate Judge and County Sheriff.  It is the intent of the
General Assembly that the amount appropriated for such salary
supplements shall include both salary and related employer
contributions and such amounts shall be in addition to any amounts
presently being provided by the county for these positions.  The
amounts appropriated in this section for Registers of Mesne
Conveyances shall be distributed by the Comptroller General to the
appropriate County Treasurer, which shall be used as a $1,575
salary supplement for Registers of Mesne Conveyances.  Any
reduction by any county in the salary of the Clerks of Court, the
Probate Judges, Registers of Mesne Conveyances and County Sheriffs
or any other reduction of expenditures in the office of the Clerks
of Court, Probate Judges, Registers of Mesne Conveyances and County
Sheriffs shall result in a corresponding decrease of funds provided
to that county by the State.  Payment shall be made to each County
Treasurer in a single lump sum at the beginning of the fiscal year
and payment shall be made to the Clerks of Court, Probate Judges
and County Sheriffs by the County Treasurer over a twelve month
period in the same manner as county salaries are paid.  The State
shall pay $12,888 on the salary of each County Auditor and County
Treasurer in addition to any amounts presently being provided by
the county for these positions.  It is the intent of the General
Assembly that the amount appropriated by the county for these
positions shall not be reduced as a result of the appropriation and
that such appropriation shall not disqualify each County Auditor
and each County Treasurer for salary increases that they might
otherwise receive from county funds in the future.  Any reduction
by any county in the salary of the County Auditor and County
Treasurer shall result in a corresponding decrease of funds
provided to that county by the State.  These salaries shall be
administered by the Comptroller General's Office and paid in
accordance with the schedule and method of payment established for
state employees.
  125.13.  Notwithstanding the amount appropriated in this section
for alcoholic liquors-minibottle tax, that tax revenues generated
from the sale of minibottles must be funded at one hundred percent
of the revenues received, and allocated in accordance with Section
61-5-150 of the 1976 Code.
  125.14.  Aid to Counties, Income Tax, shall be reduced by $18,641
to Berkeley County only and appropriated to the Department of
Health and Environmental Control to be used to fund a position of
Field Technician III for Berkeley County.

the Department of Highways and Public Transportation.  The
Department must give at least thirty days' notice to these small
business concerns on their list of contracts to be let.  When such
small business concerns are not available to perform the work
required by the provisions of this section, the Department must
verify and record this fact which verification must be preserved in
the records of the Department.  No contractor may be excluded from
consideration for an award of a construction contract under this
proviso if the prime contractor files with the Department an
affidavit with sufficient proof that there is no small business
concern located in South Carolina that can satisfactorily perform
any of the construction work required under the contract.
*[126.26.  Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 12-27-400 of

"C" construction funds must be maintained by the
governing body of the county.  The construction, improvement, and
maintenance of the farm-to-market or state secondary highway
program and of roads using the fifty percent "C"
construction funds must be at least equal to the amount of revenue
derived from the tax of 2.66 cents on motor fuel.]
  126.27.  (A) Of total state source highway funds expended in
fiscal year on construction contracts, the Department of Highways
and Public Transportation shall, through the use of goals or
set-asides, provided that goals be used only on projects exceeding
$500,000, insure not less than:
  (1) five percent are expended with small business concerns owned
and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged
individuals (DBE'S) as defined in Public Law 95-507; and
  (2) five percent are expended with firms owned and controlled by
disadvantaged females (WBE'S).
  The Department shall certify eligible firms under this paragraph
and shall give at least thirty days' notice to certified firms of
contracts to be let.  No firm may be certified if it has previously
been certified as a DBE or WBE for purposes of federal or state
source highway construction contracts set-asides for more than five
years.
  (B) If no DBE or WBE firms certified pursuant to this paragraph
are available to perform a contract, the Department shall verify
and record this fact and the verification must be preserved in
Department records.  To the extent a goal or set-aside for a
particular category cannot be met, the unused portion of a goal or
set-aside must be added to the goal or set-aside of the other
category if the appropriate category firm is available.
  (C) To facilitate implementation of this section, the Department
may waive or guarantee bonding requirements for contracts let
pursuant to this paragraph with estimated construction costs not
exceeding two hundred fifty thousand dollars a contract, and that
any such contract set aside and awarded to a DBE or WBE contractor
without bonding shall expressly provide that termination of the
contract for default of the contractor renders the contractor
ineligible for any further Department nonbonded set-aside contracts
for a minimum period of two years from the date of the notice.
  (D)  In awarding any contract pursuant to this paragraph,
preference must be given to an otherwise eligible South Carolina
contractor submitting a responsible bid not exceeding an otherwise
eligible out-of-state contractor's low bid by two and one-half
percent.
  (E) A DBE or WBE acting as a prime contractor shall, in letting
subcontracts, comply with the applicable provisions of this
section.
  (F)  The Department shall make available technical and support
services for DBE's and WBE's the same percentages of state source
highway construction funds as is provided for the same purpose in
federal highway construction funds, not to exceed $100,000.
  (G)  Procurements and contracts made pursuant to Section 106(c)
of the Federal Surface Transportation Assistance Act of 1987
(STAA-1987) are subject to the provisions of Sections
11-35-1210(2), 11-35-1220, and 11-35-1230.

128.1  Amounts collected from earnings on state investments in
excess of $49,010,000 but not more than $30,000,000 in excess
thereof shall be transferred into the Capital Expenditure Fund to
ensure full funding pursuant to Section 11-11-310 of the 1976 Code. 
Any amount in excess of the requirement to fund the Capital
Expenditure Fund from earnings on state investments must be
transferred to the State Education Department's Aid to School
Dist.-School Building program.
  129.1.  The expenditure of money appropriated in this Act shall
be by warrant requisitions directed to the Comptroller General. 
Upon receipt of the requisition, accompanied by invoices or other
satisfactory evidence of the propriety of the payment, and itemized
according to standard budget classifications, the Comptroller
General shall issue his warrant on the State Treasurer to the payee
designated in the requisition.  Upon approval and designation by
the State Budget and Control Board, state institutions may
requisition funds in favor of their own treasurer, itemized only to
the extent of the purpose of the appropriation as expressed in this
Act, and may deposit such funds in the name of the institution, in
such bank or banking institutions as shall be designated by the
State Treasurer, and disburse same by check to meet the purposes of
the appropriation, but strict account shall be kept of all such
expenditures according to standard budget classifications.  All
money shall be drawn only when actually owing and due.  The
Comptroller General shall establish rules and regulations for the
uniform reimbursement, remittance and transfers of funds to the
General Fund of the State required by law.
  129.2.  During the Fiscal Year 1987-88, student fees at the State
institutions of higher learning shall be fixed by the respective
Boards of Trustees as follows:
  (1) Fees applicable to student housing, dining halls, student
health service, parking facility, laundries and all other personal
subsistence expenses shall be sufficient to fully cover the total
direct operating and capital expenses of providing such facilities
and services over their expected useful life except those operating
or capital expenses related to the removal of asbestos.
  (2) Student Activity Fees may be fixed at such rates as the
respective Boards shall deem reasonable and necessary.
  129.3.  The University of South Carolina, Clemson University, the
Medical University of S. C. (including the Medical University
Hospital), The Citadel, Winthrop College, S. C. State College,
Francis Marion College, College of Charleston, Lander College and
the Wil Lou Gray Opportunity School shall remit all revenues and
income, collected at the respective institutions, to the State
Treasurer according to the terms of Section 1 of this Act, but all
such revenues or income so collected, except fees received as
regular term tuition, matriculation, and registration, shall be
carried in a special continuing account by the State Treasurer, to
the credit of the respective institutions, and may be requisitioned
by said institutions, in the manner prescribed in Section 129.1 of
this Act, and expended to fulfill the purpose for which such fees
or income were levied, but no part of such income shall be used for
permanent improvements without the express written approval of the
State Budget and Control Board and the Joint Legislative Capital
Bond Review Committee; and it is further required that no such fee
or income shall be charged in excess of the amount that is
necessary to supply the service, or fulfill the purpose for which
such fee or income was charged.  Notwithstanding other provisions
of this Act, funds at State Institutions of Higher Learning derived
wholly from athletic or other student contests, from the activities
of student organizations, and from the operations of canteens and
bookstores, and from approved Private Practice plans may be
retained at the institution and expended by the respective
institutions only in accord with policies established by the
institution's Board of Trustees.  Such funds shall be audited
annually by the State but the provisions of this Act concerning
unclassified personnel compensation, travel, equipment purchases
and other purchasing regulations shall not apply to the use of
these funds.
  129.4.  The institutions of higher education may offer
educational fee waivers to no more than two percent of the
undergraduate student body.
  129.5.  The Boards of Trustees of the University of South
Carolina, Clemson University, The Citadel, Winthrop College, S. C.
State College, Francis Marion College, the College of Charleston,
and Lander College, are hereby authorized to abate the tuition fee
charged at these institutions to the extent of fifty ($50.00)
dollars to the winner of the American Legion High School Oratorical
Contest and to the Governor of Boy's State and to the highest
ranking student in the State in the annual National Science Talent
Search and to the Governor of Girls' State; and said abatements to
be for four (4) years in each instance.  As to the winner of the
American Legion High School Oratorical Contest and the Governor of
Boys' State, the abatement shall be granted only when the American
Legion, Department of South Carolina, shall have contributed a like
amount per year.  The abatement of tuition herein provided is for
the purpose of furnishing a scholarship of one hundred ($100.00)
dollars per year to the winners of the above contests, the State of
South Carolina and the American Legion, Department of South
Carolina, co-operating on an equal basis in providing these
scholarships.
  129.6.  Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Act, funds
at Technical Education Colleges derived wholly from the activities
of student organizations and from the operations of canteens and
bookstores may be retained by the college and expended only in
accord with policies established by the respective college's Area
Commission and approved by the State Board for Technical and
Comprehensive Education.
  129.7.  As far as practicable all departments, institutions, and
agencies of the State are hereby directed to budget and allocate
the appropriations herein made to them as quarterly allocations so
as to provide for operation on uniform standards throughout the
fiscal year and in order to avoid a deficiency in such
appropriations.  It should be recognized that academic year
calendars of state institutions will affect the uniformity of the
receipt and distribution of funds during the years.  The Budget and
Control Board is authorized to require any agency, institutions or
department to file a quarterly allocations plan and is further
authorized to restrict the rate of expenditures of the agency,
institution or department if the Board determines that a deficit
may occur.  The bonds of State officials violating the terms of
this section shall be held liable therefor, unless the Budget and
Control Board has been advised of, and officially recognizes the
necessity for such deficit.
  129.8.  All Federal Funds received shall be deposited in the
State Treasury, if not in conflict with Federal regulations, and
withdrawn therefrom as needed, in the same manner as that provided
for the disbursement of state funds.  If it shall be determined
that federal funds are not available for, or cannot be
appropriately used in connection with, all or any part of any
activity or program for which state funds are specifically
appropriated in this Act to match Federal funds, the appropriated
funds may not be expended and shall be returned to the General
Fund, except upon specific written approval of the Budget and
Control Board after review by the Joint Appropriations Review
Committee.  Donations or contributions from sources other than the
Federal Government, for use by any state agency, shall be deposited
in the State Treasury, but in special accounts, and shall be
withdrawn from the treasury as needed to fulfill the purposes and
conditions of the said donations, or contributions, if specified,
and, if not specified, as may be directed by the proper authorities
of the department.  The expenditure of funds by agencies of the
State Government from sources other than General Fund
appropriations shall be subject to the same limitations and
provisions of law applicable to the expenditure of appropriated
funds with respect to salaries, wages or other compensation, travel
expense, and other allowance or benefits for employees.
  129.9.  Except as otherwise provided in this Act, all
appropriations for compensation of State Employees shall be paid in
twice-monthly installments to the person holding such position.  In
order to provide a regular and permanent schedule for payment of
employees, it is hereby established that the payroll period shall
begin on June 2, 1987, with the first pay period ending on June 16,
1987.  The payroll period shall continue thereafter on a
twice-monthly schedule as established by the Budget and Control
Board.  It is the intent of the General Assembly that this
schedule, thus established, will continue from one fiscal year to
another without interruption, on a twice monthly basis.  The Budget
and Control Board is authorized to approve any changes to this
schedule where circumstances are deemed justifiable.
  The appropriated salaries for specified positions shall mean the
maximum compensation for such position, except as specifically
provided in other provisions of this Act, and in any case where the
head of any department can secure the services for a particular
position or work at a lower rate than the salary specified in this
Act, authority for so doing is hereby given.
  No employee of any state department or institution shall be paid
any compensation from any other department of the state government
except with the approval of the State Budget and Control Board, and
no employee of any department or institution shall be paid travel
expenses by any other department or institution without approval of
the agency by which he is regularly employed.  The Comptroller
General shall report, after June thirtieth of each year, to the
House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Finance Committee the
names of all employees receiving dual compensation and the amounts
received.
  The provisions of Regulation 19-707.02 and Section 8-5-10 of the
1976 Code, as amended, shall not apply to employees hired for 120
days or less.
  129.10.  That salaries paid to officers and employees of the
State, including its several boards, commissions, and institutions
shall be in full for all services rendered, and no perquisites of
office or of employment shall be allowed in addition thereto, but
such perquisites, commodities, services or other benefits shall be
charged for at the prevailing local value and without the purpose
or effect of increasing the compensation of said officer or
employee.  The charge for these items may be payroll deducted at
the discretion of the Comptroller General or the chief financial
officer at each agency maintaining its own payroll system.  This
shall not apply to the Governor's Mansion, nor to guards at any of
the State's penal institutions and nurses and attendants at the
Department of Mental Health, and the Department of Mental

employees regardless of the source of funds from which payment for
personal service is drawn.  Academic personnel of the institutions
of higher learning and other individual or group of positions that
cannot practically be covered by the plan may be excluded therefrom
but their compensations shall, nevertheless, be subject to approval
by the Budget and Control Board.  Salary appropriations for
employees fixed in this Act shall be in full for all services
rendered, and no supplements from other sources shall be permitted
or approved by the State Budget and Control Board.  With the
exception of travel and subsistence, legislative study committees
shall not compensate any person who is otherwise employed as a
full-time state employee.  Salaries of the heads of all agencies of
the State Government shall be specifically fixed in this Act and no

each technical education center while traveling on the business of
the State shall, upon presentation of a paid receipt, be allowed
reimbursement for actual expenses incurred for lodging.  The
employee shall also be reimbursed for the actual expenses incurred
in the obtaining of meals except that such costs shall not exceed
$18 per day, except in urban areas outside of South Carolina with
populations in excess of 250,000 in which case the maximum daily
reimbursement for meals shall not exceed $30.  It shall be the
responsibility of the agency head to monitor the charges for
lodging which might be claimed by his employees in order to
determine that such charges are reasonable, taking into
consideration location, purpose of travel or other extenuating
circumstances.  The provisions of this item shall not apply to
Section 42-3-40 of the 1976 Code.
  B.  That employees of the State, when traveling outside the

such committees may opt to receive actual expenses incurred for
lodging and actual expenses incurred in the obtaining of meals in
lieu of the allowable subsistence expense.

allowed the same reimbursement for actual expenses incurred at the
rates provided in Paragraph A through I of this Section.
  F.  No subsistence reimbursement shall be allowed to a Justice of
the Supreme Court or Judge of the Court of Appeals while traveling

official business of said court within 40 miles outside the county
of his official residence, a Supreme Court Justice and a Judge of
the Court of Appeals shall be allowed subsistence expenses in the
amount of $35 per day plus such mileage allowance for travel as is
provided for other employees of the State.  When traveling on
official business of said Court 40 or more miles outside the county
of his official residence, each Justice and Judge of the Court of
Appeals shall be allowed subsistence expenses in the amount as
provided in this Act for members of the General Assembly plus such
mileage allowance for travel as is provided for other employees of
the State.  The Chief Justice, or such other person as he
designates, while attending the Conference of Chief Justices and
one member of the Supreme Court while attending the National
Convention of Appellate Court Judges, and three Circuit Judges
while attending the National Convention of State Trial Judges shall

other official business requiring out-of-state expenses at the rate
provided in paragraph A of this section.
  G.  No subsistence reimbursements are allowed to a Circuit Judge
or a Family Court Judge while holding court within the county in
which he resides.  While holding court or on other official
business outside the county, but within the circuit in which he
resides and within fifty miles of his residence, a Circuit Court
Judge or Family Court Judge is entitled to a subsistence allowance
in the amount of $35 per day.  While holding court or on other
official business within his circuit at a location fifty miles or
more from his residence or without his circuit, a Circuit Court or
Family Court Judge is entitled to a subsistence allowance in the
amount as provided in this Act for members of the General Assembly.
  H.  Any retired Justice, Circuit Court Judge or Family Court
Judge appointed by the Supreme Court to serve as a Special Circuit
Judge, Family Court Judge, Appeals Court Judge, or Acting Associate
Justice shall serve without pay but shall receive the same
allowance for subsistence, expenses, and mileage as provided in
Part I for Circuit Court Judges.
  I.  No expense shall be allowed an employee either at his place
of residence or at the official headquarters of the agency by which
he is employed except as provided in paragraph E of this section. 
When an employee is assigned to work a particular territory or
district, and such territory or district and his official
headquarters are in different localities or sections of the State,
expenses may be allowed for the necessary travel to his official
headquarters.  The members of the Industrial Commission, Public
Service Commission and the Employment Security Commission may be
reimbursed at the regular mileage rate of one round trip each week
from their respective homes to Columbia.  No subsistence
reimbursement shall be allowed to a member of the Industrial
Commission, Public Service Commission or the Employment Security
Commission while traveling in the county of his official residence. 
When traveling on official business of the Commission within 50
miles outside the county of his official residence, a member of the
Industrial Commission, Public Service Commission or the Employment
Security Commission shall be allowed subsistence expenses in the
amount of $35 per day.  When traveling on official business of the
Commission 50 or more miles outside the county of his official
residence, each member shall be allowed a subsistence expense in
the amount of $50 per day except that members of the Employment
Security Commission, Public Service Commission, and Industrial
Commission shall receive a subsistence allowance as provided in
this Act for members of the General Assembly.
  J.  When an employee of the State shall use his or her personal
automobile in traveling on necessary official business, a charge of
21 cents per mile will be allowed for the use of such automobile
and the employee shall bear the expense of supplies and upkeep
thereof.  Whenever State-provided motor pool vehicles are
reasonably available and an employee of the State shall request for
his own benefit to use his or her personal vehicle in traveling on
necessary official business, a charge of 20 cents per mile will be
allocated for the use of such vehicle and the employee shall bear
the expense of supplies and upkeep thereof.  When such travel is by
a State-owned automobile, the State shall bear the expense of
supplies and upkeep thereof but no mileage will be allowed. 
Agencies are requested to utilize self-service gasoline pumps and
state gasoline facilities when prudent and effect a reduction in
the number of miles traveled to provide necessary funds for the
essential travel.  In traveling on the business of the State,
employees are required to use the most economical mode of
transportation, due consideration being given to urgency, schedules
and like factors.
  K.  That a State agency may advance travel and subsistence
expense monies to employees of that agency for the financing of
ordinary and necessary travel required in the conducting of the
business of the agency.  The Budget and Control Board is directed
to develop and publish rules and regulations pertaining to the
advancing of travel expenses and no State agency shall make such
advances except under the rules and regulations as published.  All
advances for travel and subsistence monies shall be repaid to the
agency within thirty (30) days after the end of the trip or by the
end of the fiscal year, whichever comes first.
  L.  That the State institutions of higher learning are authorized
to reimburse reasonable relocation expenses for new employees when
such reimbursements are considered by the agency head to be
essential to successful recruitment of professionally competent
staff members.
  M.  The State Budget and Control Board is authorized to
promulgate and publish rules and regulations governing travel and
subsistence payments.
  129.13.  The per diem allowance of all boards, commissions and
committees shall be at the rate of thirty-five ($35) dollars per
day.  No full-time officer or employee of the State shall draw any
per diem allowance for service on such boards, commissions or
committees.
  129.14.  In addition to the powers and duties devolved upon the
Budget and Control Board by the 1976 Code of Laws of this State,
the said Board is hereby given full power and authority to make
surveys, studies, and examinations of departments, institutions,
and agencies of this State, as well as its programs, so as to
determine whether a proper system of accounting is maintained in
such departments, institutions, commissions, and agencies, and to
require and enforce the adoption of such policies as are deemed
necessary to accomplish these purposes; and to survey, appraise,
examine and inspect, and determine the true conditions of all
property of the State, and what may be necessary to protect it
against fire hazard or deterioration, and to conserve its use for
State purposes, and to make and issue and to enforce all necessary,
needful, and convenient rules and regulations for the enforcement
of this provision and to approve the destruction or disposal of
records of no value to the State.  The State Budget and Control
Board may require that all plans and specifications for permanent
improvements of any nature by any State department or institution
shall be submitted to the said Board for approval prior to the
awarding of any contract therefor, or prior to construction by any
other means.  The State Budget and Control Board shall have the
authority to approve blanket bonds for each of the several
departments, agencies and institutions of the state government,
which bonds shall include coverage requirements by law for
particular officials and employees and any others who, in the
opinion of the Board, should be bonded.  Such blanket bonds shall
be subject to approval as to form and execution by the Attorney
General.
  The Division of General Services may contract to develop an
energy utilization management system for state facilities under its
control and to assist other agencies and departments in
establishing similar programs following all applicable laws and
regulations, but no capital expenditures are authorized hereby.
  129.15.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the State
Treasurer may enter into contracts whereby the agency or
institution may accept credit cards as payment for goods or
services provided.
  129.16.  Any appropriations made herein or by special act now or
hereafter, are hereby declared to be maximum, conditional and
proportionate, the purpose being to make them payable in full in
the amount named herein, if necessary, but only in the event the
aggregate revenues available during the period for which the
appropriation is made are sufficient to pay them in full.  The
State Budget and Control Board shall have full power and authority
to survey the progress of the collection of revenue and the
expenditure of funds by all departments and institutions.  If the
Budget and Control Board determines that a deficit may occur, it
shall utilize such funds as may be available to avoid a year-end
deficit and thereafter take such action as necessary to restrict
the rate of expenditure as provided in Section 129.7 of this Act. 
No institution, activity, program, item, special appropriation, or
allocation for which the General Assembly has provided funding in
any part of this Act shall be discontinued, deleted, or deferred by
the Budget and Control Board.  Any reduction of rate of expenditure
by the said Board, under authority of this Act, shall be applied as
uniformly as may be practicable except that no reduction shall be
applied to funds encumbered by a written contract with an agency
not connected with the State Government; and in making such
reductions any amounts of State Revenues allocated by law to
counties and municipalities (commonly referred to as Aid to
Subdivisions) shall be subject to reduction the same as
appropriations.  Counties and municipalities shall be immediately
notified of any such action by the Board.  No such reduction shall
be ordered by the State Budget and Control Board while the General
Assembly is in session without first reporting such necessity to
the General Assembly.
  The expenditure of funds, heretofore or hereafter provided, by
any State Agency, except the Department of Highways and Public
Transportation for permanent improvements as defined in the State
Budget, shall be subject to approval and regulations of the State
Budget and Control Board.  The Board shall have authority to allot
to specific projects from funds made available for such purposes,
such amounts as are estimated to cover the respective costs of such
projects, to declare the completion of any such projects, and to
dispose, according to law, of any unexpended balances of
allotments, or appropriations, or funds otherwise provided for such
projects, upon the completion thereof.  The approval of the Budget
and Control Board shall not be required for minor construction
projects (including renovations and alterations) where the cost
does not exceed an amount determined by the Joint Bond Review
Committee and the Budget and Control Board.
  In all construction, improvement and renovation of State
buildings, the applicable standards and specifications set forth in
each of the following codes shall be followed: The Standard
Building Code - 1986 Edition; The Standard Plumbing Code - 1986
Edition; The Standard Gas Code - 1985 Edition; The Standard
Mechanical Code - 1986 Edition as adopted by the Southern Building
Code Congress International, Inc.; The National Electrical Code -

Edition and Pamphlet 58 of The National Fire Protection Association
- 1983 Edition.  Appendices A, G, K and M of The Standard Building
Code 1986 Edition shall not be followed.
  129.17.  (A) Transfers of appropriations herein provided may be
made within departments upon written justification to the State
Budget Division and upon the unanimous approval of the State Budget
and Control Board.
  (B) No such transfer may exceed twenty percent of the program
budget.  Upon request, details of such transfers may be provided to
members of the General Assembly on an agency by agency basis.
  (C) The Board shall also maintain a record of disallowed transfer
requests and use all transfer activity data to assist in analyzing
agencies' budget requests.  A report on transfer activity shall be
made quarterly to the Ways and Means Committee and the Senate
Finance Committee.
  129.18.  Subsection (a).  The Budget and Control Board is hereby
directed to assess and collect a rental charge from all departments
and agencies of the State Government occupying space in
State-controlled office buildings.  The amount charged each
department or agency shall be calculated on a square foot, or other
equitable basis of measurement, and at such rates as will yield
sufficient total annual revenue to cover, in priority order, both
(1) the annual principal and interest due on the Capital
Improvement Obligations authorized by Act No. 829 of the 1964 Acts,
Act No. 1273 of the 1970 Acts and Act No. 508 of the 1971 Acts and
Act No. 1377 of the 1968 Acts, as amended, for projects
administered by the Division of General Services and (2)
maintenance and operation costs of State-controlled office
buildings in the City of Columbia.  The amount so collected which
is applicable to the payment of principal and interest due on
obligations authorized by Act 1377 of the 1968 Acts, as amended,
shall be paid into the State's General Fund to apply on debt
service appropriations under the Section 122 of this Act.
  Subsection (b).  All departments and agencies against which
rental charges are assessed and whose operations are financed in
whole or in part by Federal and/or other nonappropriated funds are
directed to apportion the payment of such charges equitably among
all such funds, so that each shall bear its proportionate share. 
All appropriations in this Act applicable to the rental of space in
State-controlled buildings (exclusive of the Department of Highways
and Public Transportation), shall be available only for payment of
that portion of rental charges applicable to State-appropriated
operations.
  Subsection (c).  Rental collections shall be deposited by the
Budget and Control Board in the State Treasury in a special account
and shall be expended only for (1) payment of principal and
interest due on the obligations referred to in Subsection (a) above
and (2) maintenance and operations costs of the buildings referred
to in Subsection (a) above.
  129.19.  Any funds derived by the State Ports Authority from the
rental, lease or sale of any of its facilities shall be expended
for the benefit of the particular Port where such facilities are
located.
  129.20.  In any instances where Federal laws or regulations,
relating to funds allotted to State Government agencies, include
requirements relating to banking procedures, the State Treasury
shall be deemed to meet the definition of a bank.
  129.21.  Presidents of the University of South Carolina, Clemson
University, the Medical University of South Carolina, The Citadel,
Winthrop College, South Carolina State College, Francis Marion
College, College of Charleston, and Lander College must not be paid
a fixed allowance for personal expenses incurred in connection with
the performance of their official duties.  Reimbursements may be
made to the Presidents from funds available to their respective
institutions for any personal expenses incurred provided that all
requests for reimbursement are supported by properly documented
vouchers processed through the normal accounting procedures of the
institutions.
  129.22.  The funds appropriated to each agency or institution for
payment of employer contributions for state employees shall be used
for that purpose only and it is intended that the amount so
provided to each agency or institution shall be sufficient to pay
the employer contribution costs of that agency.  The Budget and
Control Board is directed to devise a plan for the expenditure of
the funds appropriated for employer contributions and may require
transfers of funds within an agency or institution if it becomes
evident that the employer contribution costs will exceed the funds
available for that purpose.
  129.23.  The General Assembly expresses its continuing concern
over the control of the number of personnel employed by the State
of South Carolina.  This concern is evidenced in the 1980 Public
Employment Report of the United States Bureau of Census.  It is
further declared to be the intent of the General Assembly to
continue to take positive steps to control and restrict the number
of personnel employed in the future, without unduly hampering the
legitimate functions of state government.
  In order to obtain the necessary control over the number of
employees, the Budget and Control Board is hereby directed to
maintain close supervision over the number of state employees, and
to require specifically the following:
  1.  That no state agency exceed the total authorized number of
full-time equivalent positions funded from State, Federal, or other
sources as provided in each section of this Act except by majority
vote of the Budget and Control Board after review and comment by
the Joint Legislative Committee on Personal Service Financing and
Budgeting. Specific written confirmation of such majority approval
shall be forwarded to the Joint Appropriations Review Committee in
the event that any agency is allowed to exceed the number of
positions authorized in this Act.
  2. That the State Budget Division shall maintain and make, as
necessary, periodic adjustments thereto, an official record of the
total number of authorized full-time equivalent positions by agency
categorized by State, Federal, or other funding sources and shall
provide a certified duplicate of such record to the Joint
Legislative Committee on Personal Service Financing and Budgeting
and to the Joint Appropriations Review Committee. The State Budget
Division shall submit monthly reports to the Joint Legislative
Committee on Personal Service Financing and Budgeting and the Joint
Appropriations Review Committee and such reports shall include any
changes in the authorized number of full-time equivalent positions,
the number of filled and vacant positions and any other data
requested by the committees.
    (a) That within thirty (30) days of the passage of the
Appropriation Act or by August 1, whichever comes later, each
agency of the State must have established on the Budget and Control
Board records all positions authorized in the Act.  After that
date, the Board shall delete any nonestablished positions
immediately from the official record of authorized full-time
equivalent positions.  No positions shall be established by the
Board in excess of the number authorized in the Board record of
authorized full-time equivalent positions.
    (b) That within forty-five (45) days of the passage of the
Appropriation Act, or by August 15, whichever comes later, the
Board shall prepare a personal service detail, by agency, which
shows each position established for the fiscal year and the amount
of funds required, by source of funds, to support the position for
the fiscal year at a funding level of 100% and the Board shall then
reconcile each agency's personal service detail with the agency's
personal service appropriation as contained in the Act adjusted for
any pay increases, and any other factors necessary to reflect the
agency's personal service funding level.  The Board shall provide
a copy of each agency's personal service reconciliation to the
Budget and Control Board and to the Joint Legislative Committee on 
Personal Service Financing and Budgeting.
    (c) Any position which is shown by the reconciliation to be
unfunded or significantly underfunded may be deleted at the
direction of the Budget and Control Board and the Joint Legislative
Committee on Personal Service Financing and Budgeting.
    (d) Full-time equivalent (FTE) positions shall be determined
under the following guidelines:
      1.  The annual work hours for each FTE shall be the agency's
full-time standard annual work hours.
      2.  The State FTE shall be derived by multiplying the state
percentage of budgeted funds for each position by the FTE for that
position.
      3.  All institutions of higher education shall use a value of
0.75 FTE for each position determined to be full-time faculty with
a duration of nine (9) months.
  The FTE method of accounting shall be utilized for all authorized
positions.
  3.  That the number of positions authorized in this Act shall be
reduced in the following circumstances:
    (a) Upon request by an agency.
    (b) When anticipated federal funds are not made available.
    (c) When the Budget and Control Board, through study or
analysis, becomes aware of any unjustifiable excess of positions in
any state agency.
    (d) When a position has been vacant for nine months.  Except in
the case of an academic position at an institution of higher
education when such position has been vacant for eighteen months.
  4.  That no new permanent positions in state government shall be
funded by appropriations in acts supplemental to this Act but
temporary positions may be so funded.
  5.  The provisions of this section shall not apply to personnel
exempt from the State Classification and Compensation Plan under
Item I of Section 8-11-260 of the 1976 Code.
  The Budget and Control Board, in making their appropriation
recommendations to the Ways and Means Committee, must provide that
the level of personal service appropriation recommended for each
agency is at least 95% of the funds required to meet 100% of the
funds needed for the full-time equivalents positions recommended by
the Board (exclusive of new positions).
  The Budget and Control Board, must submit to the Ways and Means
Committee and Senate Finance Committee at each stage of
consideration of the appropriation bill, a personal service
reconciliation which includes the number of positions recommended
for the next fiscal year and the amount needed to fully fund the
positions compared to the amount recommended as of that stage and
a list of italicized positions.
  129.24.  The Legislative Audit Council, the State Auditor, the
House Ways and Means Committee, the State Reorganization Commission
and the Senate Finance Committee shall be furnished a copy of each
audit report issued by a Federal Audit Agency within fifteen days
from the date of receipt by the State Agency.  The State Auditor
shall periodically furnish a list of such reports to each member of
the General Assembly and to the Joint Appropriations Review
Committee.  The State Auditor will provide a copy of each Federal
Block Grant Audit Report to the Joint Appropriations Review
Committee to comply with provisions of the Omnibus Budget
Reconciliation Act of 1981.
  129.25.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Budget
and Control Board shall be responsible for coordinating the
placement of all state employees who are terminated because of a
reduction-in-force resulting from reduced personal service funding
and shall issue such administrative procedures as necessary to
carry out the intent of this proviso.  When a vacancy occurs in a
state agency, or when an agency acts to fill a new position as
listed and italicized in the Appropriation Act, the agency shall
implement the recall provisions of their reduction-in-force
procedure and plan concerning its employees who have been
terminated as a result of a reduction-in-force.  State agencies
shall give priority consideration to those employees who have been
terminated from any other state agency as a result of this
reduction-in-force and who were formerly employed in the same
classification, classification series, or position category as the
vacancy or the new position listed in this act.  Notwithstanding
any other provision of law, when a vacancy occurs in a state
agency, other than institutions of higher education, or when an
agency acts to fill a new position, the agency shall give
preference to residents of this State, if the two are equally
qualified for the vacancy or new position.  The Budget and Control
Board shall immediately notify all agencies of this new requirement
on the effective date of this Act.
  129.26.  It is the responsibility of all agencies, departments
and institutions of state government, to provide at no cost and as
a part of the regular services of the agency, department or
institution such services as are necessary to carry out the
provisions of Chapter 52 of Title 44 (Involuntary Commitment),
Article 7, Chapter 17 of Title 44 of the 1976 Code (Judicial
Commitment), Chapter 3 of Title 17 of the 1976 Code (Defense of
Indigents), and Article 1 of Chapter 3 of Title 16 of the 1976 Code
(Death Penalty), as amended, upon request of the Judicial
Department and/or the appropriate court.  To this end, state
agencies are directed to furnish to the Judicial Department a list
of their employees who are competent to serve as court examiners. 
The Judicial Department shall forward a copy of this list to the
appropriate courts, and the courts shall utilize the services of
such state employees whenever feasible.  State employees shall
receive no additional compensation for performing such services. 
For the purpose of interpreting this section, employees of the
Medical University of South Carolina and individuals serving an
internship or residency as an academic requirement or employees who
are not full-time state employees and who are not performing duties
as state employees are not considered state employees.
  129.27.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any aircraft
and watercraft confiscated or seized under the provisions of Act
185 of 1979 may be used by a governmental agency, at the discretion
and approval of the Budget and Control Board.
  129.28.  All state employees, who are commissioned law
enforcement officers upon retirement, if vested, may purchase their
assigned weapon at a nominal fee.
  129.29.  Notwithstanding any laws, rules, regulations, or
practices to the contrary, where expenditures of state funds are
reimbursed by federal or other funds, except those received by the
South Carolina Department of Highways and Public Transportation,
the reimbursement must be returned to the General Fund of the
State.  The reimbursements referred to in this section must
include, but are not limited to, those received under the
provisions of the Federal Social Services Block Grant program,
various indirect and overhead cost recoveries, and certain
"earned" funds.  State agencies receiving research and
student loan indirect cost recoveries are exempt from this
provision but shall report the intended use of these retained
indirect cost recoveries to the Governor's Office of Grants
Services and the Joint Appropriations Review Committee within
fourteen days following the receipt of the award.  No exemption is
allowed, except as provided in this section, unless it is approved
in writing by the Budget and Control Board.  The Governor's Office
of Grants Services, the Joint Appropriations Review Committee, and
the Budget and Control Board continually shall monitor the
activities of the various state agencies to insure compliance with
the provisions of this section.
  The Budget and Control Board shall report to the General Assembly
all instances of noncompliance with this paragraph and any
exemptions as allowed by this paragraph and the reasons for the
exemptions.
  129.30.  No aircraft will be purchased or leased or
leased-purchased for more than a 30 day period for any state agency
without the authorization of the State Budget and Control Board and
the Joint Bond Review Committee.
  129.31.  The General Assembly, in recognition of the need to meet
certain reporting requirements relating to information returns to
be submitted to the Internal Revenue Service, hereby directs the
Budget and Control Board to establish a formula for calculating and

enumerated in Section 12-19-100, shall pay to] [the commission at
the time of filing the report required by Section 12-19-20 an

twenty-five dollars.   The license fee provided for by this section

eliminated by application of its capital surplus, after deducting
subsequent distributions to shareholders and transfer to stated
capital and capital surplus to the extent that the distribution and
transfers are made out of earned surplus.   Unrealized appreciation
of assets may not be included in earned surplus.  The amount of the
license fee required by this section for a bank holding company and
savings and loan holding company must be measured by the capital
stock and paid-in surplus of the holding company exclusive of the
capital stock and paid-in surplus of any bank or savings and loan
association that is a subsidiary of the holding company.  For the
purposes of this section,] ['bank', 'bank holding company', and a
'subsidiary' of a bank holding company have the same definitions as
in Section 34-24-20 and savings and loan 'association', 'savings
and loan holding company', and a 'subsidiary' of a savings and loan
association have the same definitions as Section 34-28-300."

actual proof of the death of the insured is deemed to be matured
and the proceeds thereof are deemed to be due and payable if such
policy was in force when the insured attained the limiting age
under the mortality table on which the reserve is based, unless the
person appearing entitled thereto has within the preceding five
years, (a) assigned, readjusted, or paid premiums on the policy, or

payment of principle or income, corresponded in writing concerning
the property, or otherwise indicated an interest as evidenced by a
memorandum on file with the fiduciary:

funds so retained must be transmitted to the State Treasurer to be
credited to the Tax Commission as a reserve for the payment of
valid claims which may be made to the Tax Commission by the owner
thereof after the date that the funds are returned to the
respective counties.  This section applies to both funds to be

TO AMEND SECTION 59-20-40 OF THE 1976 CODE, RELATING TO THE
DETERMINATION OF ANNUAL ALLOCATIONS TO SCHOOL DISTRICTS UNDER THE
EDUCATION FINANCE ACT OF 1977, SO AS TO REVISE THE ORDER OF
PRIORITY IN ALLOCATING THE FUNDING OF WEIGHTED PUPIL UNIT
INCREMENTS FOR COMPENSATORY AND REMEDIAL PROGRAMS.  
  Section 59-20-40(7) of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
  "(7)  Annually in the General Appropriations Act the General
Assembly shall determine an appropriation level for compensatory
and remedial programs.  The State Board of Education shall
promulgate regulations to implement a system so as to provide a pro
rata matching of the weighted pupil units to the pupils in
districts of the State who fail to meet the statewide minimum
standards in reading, writing, and mathematics or who do not meet
the first grade readiness test standard.  To accommodate the level
of the total appropriation for compensatory and remedial programs,
the State Board of Education shall allocate the funding of weighted
pupil unit increments according to the following order of priority: 
(1) all students scoring below BSAP standard on any portion of the
exit examination at a remedial weight of .114; (2) grades 1-6
compensatory at a weight of .26; (3) grades 2-6 remedial below BSAP
standard but above the 25th percentile at a weight of .114; (4)
grades 7-10 remedial below the 25th percentile at a weight of .114;
(5) after all students eligible under priorities 1, 2, 3, and 4
above are funded, students classified as remedial below the BSAP
standard but above the 25th percentile in grades 2-6 must be funded
as compensatory students, at a weight of .26 starting progressively
with the second grade and moving through the sixth grade as funds
permit; (6) after all students eligible under priorities 1, 2, 3,
4, and 5 above are funded, students classified as remedial below
BSAP standard but above the 25th percentile in grades 7-10 must be
funded at a weight of .114 starting progressively with the seventh
grade and moving through the tenth grade as funds permit; (7) 
after all students eligible under priorities 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6
above are funded, students classified as remedial in grades 7-12
must be funded as compensatory at a weight of .26 starting
progressively with the seventh grade and moving through the twelfth
grade as funds permit.  The districts total number of students
scoring at the compensatory or remedial level as defined in the
priorities herein must be the number of students constituting one
hundred percent to be served.  Any district not serving one hundred
percent of its eligible compensatory and remedial children funded
herein shall have its allocation reduced proportionately on a per
pupil basis.  When one hundred percent of the eligible students in
one category are served, school districts may use uncommitted funds
to serve eligible students in the other category according to the
priorities cited above.  The State Board of Education shall
promulgate regulations to insure maximum utilization of state and
Chapter 1 funds to achieve the purpose of this proviso.  Nothing in
this section prohibits the General Assembly from appropriating
funds to the Department of Education for block grants to address
basic skills remediation in early childhood development in the
school districts of the State.  Nothing in this section prohibits
a school district from using funds appropriated pursuant hereto for
compensatory and remedial programs in summer school in the
following fiscal year."

  B.  Section 12-7-210 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:

income received by the corporation during the income tax year, and
except as otherwise provided, every corporation organized under the
laws of this State, doing or transacting business partly within and

annually an income tax equivalent to five percent of a proportion
of its entire net income to be determined as provided in this
chapter, and except as otherwise provided, every foreign
corporation transacting, conducting, doing business, or having an
income within the jurisdiction of this State, whether or not the
corporation is engaged in or the income derived from intrastate,
interstate, or foreign commerce, shall make a return and shall pay
annually an income tax equivalent to five percent of a proportion
of its entire net income, to be determined as provided in this
chapter.  The term 'transacting', 'conducting', or 'doing
business', as used in this section includes the engaging in or the
transacting of any activity in this State for the purpose of
financial profit or gain.
  (B)  In the case of any corporate taxable year beginning before
January 1, 1989, the rate imposed by subsection (A) does not apply
and the following rates apply:
    (1)  six percent for corporate taxable years beginning before
1988,
    (2)  five and one-half percent for corporate taxable years
beginning in 1988."
  D.  Section 12-7-430(b)(4) of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
    "(4)  No exclusion from gross income is permitted for
South Carolina income tax purposes as permitted by Internal Revenue

1976 Code are amended respectively to read:
    "(1)  The personal exemptions and standard deduction of a
nonresident individual must be reduced to an amount which is the
same proportion as South Carolina adjusted gross income is of
federal adjusted gross income.
    (2)  If a nonresident individual itemizes deductions, the
itemized deductions must be reduced to an amount which is the same
proportion as South Carolina adjusted gross income is of federal
adjusted gross income.
    (3)  Reserved. 
    (4)  The itemized deductions and personal exemption of a
nonresident estate or nonresident trust must be reduced by an
amount which is the same proportion as South Carolina gross income
is of federal gross income."
  G. (1)  Section 12-7-455(e) of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
    "(e)  Except as provided in subsection (o) of this
section, if, as of January 1, 1985, a taxpayer is deducting the
cost of personal property placed in service prior to 1985, as
provided in Internal Revenue Code Section 168, the taxpayer is
allowed for South Carolina income tax purposes a similar annual
deduction.  At the expiration of the deductions for federal tax
purposes the balance of the deductible cost may be deducted for
South Carolina income tax purposes at the rate of fifty percent a
year, until the entire deductible cost has been deducted for South
Carolina income tax purposes.  In no event may the deduction
authorized by this subsection exceed the taxpayer's depreciable
basis."
  (2)  Section 12-7-455(u) of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
    "(u)  Except as hereinafter provided, all elections made
under the provisions of Internal Revenue Code Sections 1361 through
1378 automatically apply for South Carolina purposes.  If a
taxpayer had a valid 'S' election in effect for federal tax
purposes prior to January 1, 1985, but has not elected that
treatment for South Carolina income tax purposes, the taxpayer may
at its option continue to be subject to the tax provided in Section
12-7-230 or it may affirmatively elect in the manner described in
Internal Revenue Code Section 1362 to be exempt from the South
Carolina tax. Once made, a South Carolina 'S' election may not be
revoked or terminated unless the 'S' election is similarly revoked
or terminated for federal income tax purposes.  The approval of an
'S' election by the Internal Revenue Service is approval for South
Carolina income tax purposes as of the effective date of the
federal election.  Any termination or revocation of an 'S' election
for federal purposes automatically revokes or terminates the
election for South Carolina income tax purposes as of the effective
date of the federal revocation or termination.  An 'S' election can
be made for South Carolina income tax purposes only if it is made
for federal purposes or there is an existing 'S' election for
federal purposes. No termination occurs under Internal Revenue Code
Section 1362(d)(3) for South Carolina income tax purposes unless a
termination similarly occurs for federal tax purposes.  If Internal
Revenue Code Sections 1374 or 1375 impose a federal income tax, a
South Carolina tax computed using the rates set forth in Section
12-7-230 is imposed for South Carolina income tax purposes.  If
Internal Revenue Code Section 1374(c) is effective for federal tax
purposes, then the exception provided in the section is similarly
applicable whether or not an 'S' corporation meets the requirements
of Internal Revenue Code Section 1374(c) for South Carolina income
tax purposes.  The rules of Internal Revenue Code Section 1378
concerning tax year changes do not apply for South Carolina income
tax purposes unless the section is similarly applicable for federal
purposes (that is, a change in year is not mandated for South
Carolina income tax purposes unless mandated for federal purposes
also).  A taxpayer shall give the Commission notice of its intent
to be an 'S' corporation by filing with the Commission a copy of
the election it files with the Internal Revenue Service although,
the failure to file the notice does not void the corporation's 'S'
election for South Carolina tax purposes."
  (3)  Section 12-7-455(z) of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
  "(z)  Reserved".
  (4)  Section 12-7-455 of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act
414 of 1986, is further amended by adding:
  "(cc)  Any taxpayer required to change its accounting method
or accounting year for federal tax purposes is required to change
the method or year for South Carolina tax purposes and shall report
income or deduct expenses in the manner provided in the Internal
Revenue Code and approved by the Internal Revenue Service."
