AN ACT TO AMEND THE CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, BY ADDING SECTION 23-6-305 SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT UPON RECEIVING PROPER AUTHORITY FROM THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, THE MOTOR VEHICLES DIVISION OF THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY SHALL PROVIDE SELECTIVE SERVICE REGISTRATION FOR CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS AT THE TIME IT ISSUES, RENEWS, OR PROVIDES A DUPLICATE COPY OF A DRIVER'S LICENSE OR IDENTIFICATION CARD, AND TO PROVIDE THAT THE MOTOR VEHICLES DIVISION MUST INCLUDE CERTAIN INFORMATION IN AN APPLICATION FOR A DRIVER'S LICENSE OR IDENTIFICATION CARD THAT INFORMS THE APPLICANT THAT SUBMISSION OF THE APPLICATION SERVES AS CONSENT TO BE REGISTERED WITH THE SELECTIVE SERVICE UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Motor Vehicles Division Selective Service registration
SECTION 1. The 1976 Code is amended by adding:
"Section 23-6-305. (A) Upon receiving proper authority from the United States Government, a United States male citizen or immigrant who is less than twenty-six years of age must be registered for the United States Selective Service when applying to the Motor Vehicles Division of the Department of Public Safety for the issuance, renewal, or a duplicate copy of:
(1) a driver's license;
(2) a commercial driver's license; or
(3) an identification card.
(B) The Motor Vehicles Division shall forward in an electronic format the necessary personal information required for registration of individuals identified in this section to the Selective Service System.
(C) An individual's submission of an application contained in subsection (A) serves as an indication that the individual has registered with the Selective Service System or that he is authorizing the Motor Vehicles Division to forward to the Selective Service System information necessary for his registration.
(D) The Motor Vehicles Division shall inform the individual who is at least eighteen years of age and less than twenty-six years of age, on his application, that his submission of the application for a license or identification card serves as his consent to be registered with the Selective Service System, if required by federal law.
(E) The Motor Vehicles Division shall inform the individual who is less than eighteen years of age, on his application, that his submission of the application for a license or identification card serves as his consent to be registered with the Selective Service System upon attaining eighteen years of age, if required by federal law. His application also must be signed by his parent or guardian. By signing the application, the parent or guardian authorizes the Motor Vehicles Division to register the applicant with the Selective Service System upon attaining eighteen years of age, if required by federal law. The applicant, parent, or guardian may decline the Selective Service System registration. If the applicant, parent, or guardian declines the Selective Service System registration, the Motor Vehicles Division may issue a license or identification card, but the applicant must renew the license or identification card upon attaining eighteen years of age."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon the Motor Vehicles Division's receipt from the federal government of the funds necessary to implement this act.
Ratified the 30th day of May, 2002.
Approved the 5th day of June, 2002.
