Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Licenses or permits; surrender; transfer; certain issuances after suspension or revocation prohibited
SECTION 1. Section 61-1-95 of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 181 of 1993, is further amended to read:
"Section 61-1-95. A person promptly shall surrender a license or permit issued under the provisions of this title upon request of the department. All licenses and permits are the property of the department and are not transferable. All licenses and permits must be surrendered immediately to the department upon the termination of a business, or upon a change of ownership, possession, or control of a corporation or business entity, or upon a change in the character of the property, facilities, or nature of the business activity for which a license or permit has been obtained. The transfer of twenty-five percent or more of corporate stock is considered a change in ownership.
All licenses and permits must be issued for a designated location and may not be transferred to any other location. A separate license or permit is required for each separate location of a business.
When a license or permit is suspended or revoked, no partner or person with a financial interest of any kind in the business may be issued a license or permit for the premises concerned. No person within the second degree of kinship to a person whose license or permit is suspended or revoked may be issued a license or permit for the premises concerned for a period of one year after the date of suspension or revocation.
A person whose license or permit has been suspended or revoked for a particular premises is not eligible for a license or permit at any other location during the period the suspension or revocation is in effect, and the department may suspend or revoke all other licenses or permits held by the person if the suspended or revoked premises is within close proximity."
