TO AMEND THE CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, BY ADDING SECTION 1-1-689 SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT BEACH MUSIC IS DESIGNATED AS THE OFFICIAL STATE POPULAR MUSIC OF SOUTH CAROLINA.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The General Assembly finds that during this century and especially during the last fifty years, the development of beach music has contributed tremendously to the enjoyment of the citizens of our State and has become synonymous with South Carolina and certain of its dances including the Shag. The General Assembly further finds that it is appropriate to recognize beach music in this manner.
SECTION 2. The 1976 Code is amended by adding:
"Section 1-1-689. Beach music is designated as the official state popular music of South Carolina."
SECTION 3. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
