TO AMEND THE CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, BY ADDING CHAPTER 18 TO TITLE 37, RELATING TO CONSUMER PROTECTION, SO AS TO PROVIDE CERTAIN CONDUCT IN THE VEHICLE GLASS REPAIR BUSINESS IS AN UNFAIR TRADE PRACTICE AND UNLAWFUL.

Section 37-18-10. It is an unfair trade practice and unlawful for a person who is engaged in the vehicle glass repair business to:
(1) offer or make a payment to a third person for the third person's referral of an insurance claimant to the vehicle glass repair business for vehicle glass repairs; or
(2) waive, rebate, give, or pay all or part of an insurance claimant's casualty or property insurance deductible as consideration for selecting the vehicle glass repair business."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
