VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO AMEND SECTION 59-63-32, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO REQUIREMENTS TO ENROLL A CHILD IN A PUBLIC SCHOOL, SO AS TO INCREASE PENALTIES FOR PROVIDING FALSE INFORMATION IN AN AFFIDAVIT OFFERED TO ENROLL A CHILD IN A PUBLIC SCHOOL.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 59-63-32(E) of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"(E) If it is found that a person wilfully and knowingly has provided false information in the affidavit provided for in subsection (B) to enroll a child in a school district for which the child is not eligible, the maker of the false affidavit is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined an amount not to exceed
two hundred one thousand dollars or imprisoned for not more than thirty ninety days and also must be required to pay to the school district an amount equal to the cost to the district of educating the child during the period of enrollment. Repayment does not include funds paid by the State."
SECTION 2. The repeal or amendment by this act of any law, whether temporary or permanent or civil or criminal, does not affect pending actions, rights, duties, or liabilities founded thereon, or alter, discharge, release or extinguish any penalty, forfeiture, or liability incurred under the repealed or amended law, unless the repealed or amended provision shall so expressly provide. After the effective date of this act, all laws repealed or amended by this act must be taken and treated as remaining in full force and effect for the purpose of sustaining any pending or vested right, civil action, special proceeding, criminal prosecution, or appeal existing as of the effective date of this act, and for the enforcement of rights, duties, penalties, forfeitures, and liabilities as they stood under the repealed or amended laws.
SECTION 3. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
