TO AMEND SECTION 47-13-1350 AND 47-13-1370, BOTH AS AMENDED, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO EQUINE INFECTIOUS ANEMIA SHOTS, SO AS TO CHANGE THE TIME REQUIRED FOR A NEGATIVE REACTION TO THIS SHOT FROM SIX TO TWELVE MONTHS BEFORE A HORSE MAY BE BROUGHT INTO THE STATE AND FOR HORSES BROUGHT INTO A PUBLIC ASSEMBLY OF HORSES.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 47-13-1350 of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 375 of 1990, is further amended to read:
"Section 47-13-1350. It is unlawful to enter the State with any a horse unless the horse has been tested for equine infectious anemia and reacted negatively within six twelve months before entry. The state veterinarian, with the advice of the commanding officer of the State Highway Patrol, shall promulgate regulations to provide for the enforcement of this section."
SECTION 2. Section 47-13-1370(A) of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 375 of 1990, is further amended to read:
"(A) All horses must be accompanied by written proof of an approved negative test for equine infectious anemia when entering any a public assembly of horses. These public assemblies include, but are not limited to, shows, fairs, organized trail rides, rodeos and other exhibitions, as well as organized sales. Animals moving directly to a slaughter plant or assembly point for slaughter which has been specifically approved by the state veterinarian are not subject to the negative test requirement. The owner, operator, or person in charge of these shows, fairs, organized trail rides, rodeos and other exhibitions, organized sales, and other public places where horses are assembled shall require that each animal be accompanied by an official certificate showing that it has been negative to an approved test for equine infectious anemia within the last six twelve months."
