TO ADD RULE 51 TO THE RULES OF THE SENATE, SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT A CURRENT MEMBER OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY MAY NOT BE CONSIDERED FOR ADVICE AND CONSENT BY THE SENATE EXCEPT UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES PROVIDED IN THE RULE.
Be it resolved by the Senate of the State of South Carolina:
That the Rules of the Senate be amended by adding the following rule:
The Senate may not grant its advice and consent to a gubernatorial appointee who is a member of the General Assembly except as provided herein. Prior to consideration of an appointee, the member must either provide a written letter of resignation to take effect immediately or tender an irrevocable resignation to take effect in the future as provided by law. The irrevocable letter of resignation must contain an effective date of resignation which must occur on or before the date of consideration of the appointment. The appointee may not be considered by the Senate or any committee thereof, in executive session, or otherwise until a copy of the letter of resignation has been received by the Clerk. The provisions of this rule cannot be waived, modified, or suspended by unanimous consent."
