TO DECLARE THAT THE SOUTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF ARCHIVES AND HISTORY AND THE SOUTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF ARCHEOLOGY AND ANTHROPOLOGY MAKE AVAILABLE TO STATE ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATORY AGENCIES INFORMATION CONCERNING HISTORICAL AND ARCHEOLOGICAL SITES FOR USE IN THE PERMITTING PROCESS.
Whereas, the State of South Carolina is blessed with invaluable archeological and anthropological resources; and
Whereas, these sites must be protected to the maximum extent practicable; and
Whereas, environmental regulatory agencies operate programs that control activities potentially impacting these resources; and
Whereas, in order to determine the impact of proposed programs on archeological and anthropological resources, environmental regulatory agencies need information pertaining to the location of these resources. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate:
That the members of the Senate, by this resolution, hereby, declare that the South Carolina Department of Archives and History and the South Carolina Department of Archeology and Anthropology shall make available to state environmental regulatory agencies information concerning historical and archeological sites in a format prescribed by the regulatory agency to be utilized in the permitting process. Agencies receiving this information must use it only for purposes of determining impact of proposed activities on these historical and archeological resources.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the South Carolina Department of Archives and History, and the South Carolina Department of Archeology and Anthropology.
