Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Article not to apply
SECTION 1. Section 52-7-140 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"Section 52-7-140. The provisions of this article do not apply to any boxing, wrestling, or sparring exhibition, contest, or performance conducted by any institution of higher education or secondary school if all participants are students regularly enrolled in the institution or school, nor does this article apply to boxing or wrestling matches sanctioned by the Amateur Athletic Union or the United States Amateur Boxing Federation or such other amateur association, or group approved by the commission."
County athletic commission
SECTION 2. Section 52-7-310 of the 1976 Code, as amended by Act 79 of 1987, is further 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. 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 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 such 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."
Terms of current members
SECTION 3. Members of county athletic commissions serving on the effective date of this act shall continue to serve until the expiration of their terms, after which their successors must be appointed as provided by law.
SECTION 4. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Approved the 29th day of April, 1991.
