(A259, R344, S791)
AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 59-150-130, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO LOTTERY VENDORS AND RESTRICTIONS ON THESE VENDORS, SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT CERTAIN PROHIBITIONS AND RESTRICTIONS RELATING TO CONTRIBUTIONS AND LOBBYING DO NOT APPLY TO A LOTTERY VENDOR THAT IS A FEDERALLY-CHARTERED OR INSURED FINANCIAL INSTITUTION WHICH PROVIDES ONLY BANKING SERVICES AS A LOTTERY VENDOR, BUT DO APPLY TO THE VENDOR'S EMPLOYEES AND THEIR IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBERS WHO ARE INVOLVED ON A DAY-TO-DAY BASIS IN PROVIDING THE GOODS OR SERVICES THAT ARE THE SUBJECT OF THE CONTRACT WITH THE LOTTERY COMMISSION.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Lottery vendor restrictions
SECTION 1. Section 59-150-130(G) and (I) of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"(G) A lottery vendor must not enter into a contract for the purpose of influencing a political decision in connection with the operation of the lottery, and a lottery vendor must not employ, contract with, or otherwise authorize a lobbyist, as defined in Section 2-17-10(13), to engage in lobbying, as defined in Section 2-17-10(12), on behalf of the lottery vendor for the purpose of influencing a political decision in connection with the operation of the lottery.
(I)(1) The prohibitions and restrictions described in subsections (F) and (G) specifically apply to a lottery vendor as defined in Section 59-150-20(9), except as provided in item (2) of this subsection, and its employees, members of its board, and holders of an interest in it of more than ten percent, and their immediate family members, as defined in Section 59-150-20(6).
(2) The prohibitions and restrictions described in subsection (F) do not apply to a lottery vendor that is a federally-chartered or insured financial institution that provides only usual and customary banking services as a lottery vendor, but do apply to the vendor's employees and their immediate family members who are involved on a day-to-day basis in providing the goods or services that are the subject of the contract with the commission."

Ratified the 2nd day of June, 2004.
