That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
WARREN K. GIESE for Committee.
TO AMEND SECTION 59-112-50, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO MEMBERS OF THE ARMED SERVICES OF THE UNITED STATES STATIONED IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND THEIR DEPENDENTS BEING ELIGIBLE FOR IN-STATE TUITION RATES, SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT MEMBERS OF THE COAST GUARD AND THEIR DEPENDENTS STATIONED IN THIS STATE ARE ALSO ELIGIBLE FOR IN-STATE TUITION RATES.

SECTION 1. Section 59-112-50 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"Section 59-112-50. Notwithstanding other provisions of this chapter, during the period of their assignment to duty in South Carolina members of the armed services of the United States and the Coast Guard stationed in South Carolina and their dependents may be considered eligible for in-state rates. When
such the armed service and Coast Guard personnel are ordered away from the State, their dependents may continue for an additional twelve months to have this eligibility at the state institutions where they are enrolled at the time such the assignment ends. Such These persons and their dependents may be considered eligible for in-state rates for a period of twelve months after their discharge from the armed services or the Coast Guard even though they were not enrolled at a state institution at the time of their discharge, if they have evinced an intent to establish domicile in South Carolina and if they have resided in South Carolina for a period of at least twelve months immediately preceding their discharge."
