Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 44-55-2320 of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Section 1131, Act 181 of 1993, is further amended by adding an appropriately numbered item in alphabetical order to read:
"( ) `Homeowners association' means an association of owners incorporated under the laws of this State as a nonprofit corporation for the purpose of management of residential real estate in a subdivision or development or condominium including the operation of a swimming pool to serve the residents of the subdivision, development, or condominium."
SECTION 2. Section 44-55-2340 of the 1976 Code, as added by Act 551 of 1990, is amended by adding at the end:
"(D) Public swimming pools owned and operated by a homeowners association which are used only by the permanent residents and their invited guests are exempt from subsections (B) and (C) if the department approves a request for exemption submitted by the homeowners association. No exemption may be granted to a homeowners association with a swimming pool in a subdivision, development, or condominium where all or any portion of the residential units are time-shared, rented, or leased, unless the occupants of those residential units are excluded from pool use except as a guest of, and in the accompaniment of, a permanent homeowners association resident."
SECTION 3. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
