(A91, R105, H3577)
AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 46-13-45, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO PESTICIDE REGISTRATION FEES, SO AS TO INCREASE THE ANNUAL BASIC REGISTRATION FEE, TO PROVIDE THAT THIS FEE MAY NOT BE INCREASED EXCEPT IN AN ACT SEPARATE FROM THE GENERAL APPROPRIATIONS ACT, AND FURTHER PROVIDE FOR THE USE OF THESE FUNDS.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Fees increased; use of funds
SECTION 1. Section 46-13-45(1) of the 1976 Code, as added by Act 325 of 1996, is amended to read:

All registrants shall pay an annual basic registration fee of one hundred seventy-five dollars for each product registered. This fee may not be increased except by an act passed by the General Assembly other than the annual appropriations bill. This fee must be used to support the general regulatory enforcement and education programs of the Division of Regulatory and Public Service."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Ratified the 24th day of May, 2005.
Approved the 26th day of May, 2005.
