AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 8-11-83, AS AMENDED, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO THE PAYROLL DEDUCTION FOR STATE EMPLOYEES' ASSOCIATION DUES, SO AS TO ALLOW MEMBERSHIP DUES FOR THE SOCIETY OF FORMER AGENTS OF THE STATE LAW ENFORCEMENT DIVISION TO BE DEDUCTED FROM THE COMPENSATION OF STATE RETIREES AND PAID OVER TO THE ASSOCIATION IN THE SAME MANNER OTHER MEMBERSHIP DUES ARE DEDUCTED AND PAID.

SECTION 1. Section 8-11-83 of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 111 of 1995, is further amended to read:
"Section 8-11-83.

(C) Dues for the South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers' Association also may be deducted from the compensation of state employees and retirees and paid over to this association in the same manner other dues under this section are deducted and paid over. The same restrictions and conditions that apply to the other deductions under this section also apply to the deductions of dues for the South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers' Association.
(D) Membership dues for the Society of Former Agents of the State Law Enforcement Division also may be deducted from the compensation of state retirees and paid over to this association in the same manner other dues are deducted and paid pursuant to this section. The same restrictions and conditions that apply to the other deductions enumerated in this section also apply to the deduction of dues for the Society of Former Agents of the State Law Enforcement Division."
