(A121, R21, S207)
A JOINT RESOLUTION TO REESTABLISH A TASK FORCE TO STUDY, MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS, AND REPORT ON THE STATUTORY AND CONSTITUTIONAL RAMIFICATIONS OF VARIOUS METHODS FOR IMPROVING AND ENSURING THE SPEEDY DISPOSITION OF CIVIL CASES IN CIRCUIT COURTS AND MAGISTRATES COURTS.
Whereas, Joint Resolution 418 of 2000 established a task force to study, make recommendations, and report to the General Assembly on the statutory and constitutional ramifications of various methods for improving and ensuring the speedy disposition of civil cases in circuit courts and magistrates courts; and
Whereas, Joint Resolution 418 specified that the task force submit its report to the General Assembly no later than January 18, 2001, and be dissolved at that time; and
Whereas, because of scheduling conflicts, the task force has not yet had the opportunity to meet; and
Whereas, the conditions still exist which merit a report by the task force and the General Assembly's interest is well served in authorizing and receiving such a report. Now, therefore,
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Reestablish task force
SECTION 1. The task force established by Joint Resolution 418 of 2000 is reestablished according to the provisions of Joint Resolution 418 of 2000. The membership of the task force must be appointed after the effective date of this joint resolution. Members appointed prior to the effective date of this joint resolution must be reappointed after the effective date of this joint resolution in order to serve on the task force.
SECTION 2. Section 2(C) of Joint Resolution 418 of 2000 is amended to read:
"(C) The task force shall submit its report to the General Assembly no later than January 18, 2002, at which time the task force shall be dissolved."
SECTION 3. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Ratified the 21st day of March, 2001.
Approved the 27th day of March, 2001.
