To whom was referred a Bill (H. 4662), to amend Section 14-7-250, as amended, Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1976, relating to the names of those who are drawn and serve as jurors, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
JAMES H. HODGES, for Committee.
TO AMEND SECTION 14-7-250, AS AMENDED, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO THE NAMES OF THOSE WHO ARE DRAWN AND SERVE AS JURORS, SO AS TO PERMIT A PERSON WHOSE NAME HAS BEEN PROPERLY DRAWN TO SERVE MORE THAN ONCE EVERY THREE YEARS.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 14-7-250 of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 483 of 1992, is further amended to read:
"Section 14-7-250. The names of those who are drawn and actually serve as jurors must be placed in an envelope and must not be put back into the jury box until the first revision of the jury list provided for after they have been so drawn, to the end that no person shall is required to serve as a juror more than once in three calendar years. Nothing contained in this article may be construed to be in conflict with the provisions of the law as to selecting by lot from the grand jury six members to serve for the ensuing year.
Nothing contained in this article prohibits a person whose name has been properly drawn and who desires to serve as a juror from serving more frequently than once every three calendar years, except that no person shall serve as a juror more than once every year."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
