Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The General Assembly finds that:
(1) The Commissioner of Agriculture (commissioner) settled the case captioned as Richland County v.

(2) In connection with the settlement, the commissioner entered into and executed a mutual consent order and other appropriate documents dismissing with prejudice the referenced case and any related claims that the State of South Carolina may have in connection therewith.
(3) In connection with the settlement, the commissioner transferred on behalf of the State approximately one hundred nine acres of the tract to the South Carolina Research Authority (SCRA) and approximately thirty-seven acres of the tract to Richland County.
(4) In connection with the settlement, the commissioner and Richland County agreed that clarification should be sought with respect to the use of the tract by the SCRA and the county.
