AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 52-7-10, 52-7-15, AND 52-7-20, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO THE STATE ATHLETIC COMMISSION, SO AS TO DELETE THE REQUIREMENT THAT THE CHIEF ATHLETIC COMMISSIONER MUST BE APPOINTED FROM THE STATE AT LARGE, TO ALLOW FOR THE ELECTION OF OFFICERS AT ANY TIME BY A TWO-THIRDS VOTE OF THE COMMISSION, AND TO PROVIDE THAT COMMISSION MEETINGS MAY BE CALLED BY THE CHAIRMAN RATHER THAN THE CHIEF ATHLETIC COMMISSIONER; AND TO AMEND SECTION 52-7-310, RELATING TO COUNTY ATHLETIC COMMISSIONS, SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT THE STATE ATHLETIC COMMISSION MAY APPOINT COUNTY COMMISSIONERS IN CERTAIN CASES, AND PROVIDE THAT THE STATE ATHLETIC COMMISSION SHALL DESIGNATE THE FUNCTIONS OF COUNTY ATHLETIC COMMISSIONS.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
State Athletic Commission
SECTION 1. Section 52-7-10 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"Section 52-7-10. There is created the State Athletic Commission consisting of seven members appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate. One member must be appointed from each congressional district of the State and one from the State at large. The terms of the members are for four years and until their successors are appointed and qualify. Vacancies must be filled by the Governor for the remainder of an unexpired term. The commissioners and employees of the State Athletic Commission may not have any financial interest, direct or indirect, in the promotion, management, or result of any boxing, wrestling, or sparring event."
SECTION 2. Section 52-7-15 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"Section 52-7-15. The commission shall select its chairman, a chief commissioner, and other officers considered necessary for terms as the commission may designate. Notwithstanding any term for which an officer was elected, the commission may call an election for any officer at any time by a two-thirds vote."
SECTION 3. Section 52-7-20 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"Section 52-7-20. The commission shall meet at least twice yearly at the call of the chairman. The chairman may call other meetings when considered necessary and must do so on the direction of the majority of the commissioners. The members are allowed the usual per diem, mileage, and subsistence as provided by law for members of boards, committees, and commissions. The chief athletic commissioner shall administer the affairs of the commission under policies established by the commission. Decisions of the chief athletic commissioner may be appealed to the full commission."
County Athletic Commission
SECTION 4. Section 52-7-310 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"Section 52-7-310. The athletic commission of each county consists of five members to be appointed by the governing body of the county for terms of four years and until their successors are appointed and qualify. If no appointment has been made within sixty days after the State Athletic Commission requests in writing for an appointment to be made, the State Athletic Commission may make the appointment. The governing body of the county shall forward a record of the appointees to the commission for filing in the office of the State Athletic Commission which indicates the persons holding office and the duration of their terms. The State Athletic Commission shall designate the functions of county athletic commissions. The county athletic commission shall select its chairman and other officers to serve for terms as the commission may designate. All of the members shall serve without compensation; however, they may receive the per diem, mileage, and subsistence that the county authorizes. No member may have any financial interest, direct or indirect, in the promotion, management, or result of any boxing, wrestling, or sparring event. The office of a commissioner who fails to attend three consecutive commission meetings is declared vacant and the vacancy must be filled as provided by law. No vacancy occurs if the unaffected commission members vote unanimously to excuse the absences."
SECTION 5. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Approved the 15th day of June, 1992.
