THE COMMITTEE ON AGRICULTURE, NATURAL

RESOURCES AND ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS

To whom was referred a Bill (H. 4945) to amend Section 48-39-290, Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1976, relating to construction seaward of the baseline, so as to allow for certain erosion, etc., respectfully

REPORT:

That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:

DAVID R. HIOTT for Committee.

           

A BILL

TO AMEND SECTION 48-39-290, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO CONSTRUCTION SEAWARD OF THE BASELINE, SO AS TO ALLOW FOR CERTAIN EROSION CONTROL STRUCTURES TO HAVE THE DAMAGE ASSESSMENT BASED ON A SINGLE DISTINCT CONTINUOUS SEAWALL OR BULKHEAD RATHER THAN ON A LOT BY LOT BASIS.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:

SECTION    1.    Section 48-39-290(B)(2)(b)(v) of the 1976 Code is amended to read:

"(v)    The determination of the degree of destruction must be made on a lot by lot basis by reference to county tax maps, unless the structure was constructed prior to Act 634 of 1988 as a single distinct seawall or bulkhead measuring a minimum of one thousand continuous linear feet parallel to the shoreline. The determination of the degree of destruction must be based on the single continuous seawall or bulkhead as a whole for these structures in accordance with Section 48-39-290(B)(2)(b)(iv)."

SECTION    2.    This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
