VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO CREATE THE CARROLL CAMPBELL MONUMENT COMMISSION AND TO PROVIDE FOR THE COMMISSION'S MEMBERSHIP, DUTIES, AND RELATED MATTERS.
Whereas, among South Carolina's greatest statesmen was the late Carroll A. Campbell, Jr., Governor of South Carolina; and
Whereas, this remarkable individual served South Carolina with the utmost distinction in many capacities, as a member of both the South Carolina Senate and House of Representatives and as Governor from 1987 until 1995; and
Whereas, Carroll Campbell also represented South Carolina with the upmost integrity on the national level as a four-term United States Congressman before returning to South Carolina to serve as Governor; and
Whereas, Governor Campbell is remembered for the many ways in which he brought great hope and opportunity to the citizens of South Carolina, including his efforts in restoring the State after the damaging Hurricane Hugo, and in spurring economic growth by attracting new industry to South Carolina; and
Whereas, his lifetime achievements and accomplishments are, for all practical purposes, legendary, and the citizens of South Carolina have benefited greatly from his contributions and talents for many years and will for many years to come. Now, therefore,
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The Carroll Campbell Monument Commission is created to design and establish an appropriate monument to be placed on the grounds of the Capitol Complex to recognize the accomplishments of the late Carroll A. Campbell, Jr., Governor of South Carolina. The commission is empowered and directed to raise private funds, to receive private grants, to receive gifts to carry out the purpose for which it is created, and to designate the location of the monument; provided, that this monument must be funded entirely by private funds. By January 15, 2007, the commission shall report the proposed design, location, and dedication date of the monument to the General Assembly. Upon the dedication of this monument, the commission shall dissolve. Upon dissolution, the State shall ensure proper maintenance of the monument as is done for other historical monuments on the grounds of the Capitol Complex.
The commission shall be comprised of three members of the Senate to be appointed by the President Pro Tempore of the Senate, three members of the House of Representatives to be appointed by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and three members who may or may not be members of the General Assembly to be appointed by the Governor. Notwithstanding Section 8-13-770 of the 1976 Code of Laws or any other provision of law, members of the General Assembly may be appointed to this commission and may serve on the commission.
Commission members are not entitled to receive the subsistence, mileage, and per diem otherwise provided by law for members of state boards, committees, and commissions.
SECTION 2. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
