To whom was referred a Bill (H. 3398) to amend Act 265 of 2016, relating to the establishment of the "Tucker Hipps Transparency Act", so as to permanently authorize the act and to repeal the three-year, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
GREG HEMBREE for Committee.
TO AMEND ACT 265 OF 2016, RELATING TO THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE "TUCKER HIPPS TRANSPARENCY ACT", SO AS TO PERMANENTLY AUTHORIZE THE ACT AND TO REPEAL THE THREE-YEAR SUNSET PROVISION.
Whereas, in 2016, the General Assembly enacted the "Tucker Hipps Transparency Act" in Act 265 of 2016, requiring public institutions of higher learning in this State to maintain reports of actual findings of certain misconduct by fraternity and sorority organizations, among other things; and
Whereas, the sunset provision of Act 265 of 2016 will result in the expiration of the act on June 29, 2019, unless the provisions of the act are extended or reenacted by the General Assembly; and
Whereas, the General Assembly finds that the success of the "Tucker Hipps Transparency Act" merits its permanent continuation, making it necessary to eliminate this sunset provision. Now, therefore,
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The "Tucker Hipps Transparency Act", as established by Act 265 of 2016 and contained in Section 59-101-210, is permanently enacted by the provisions of this act.
SECTION 2. SECTION 4 of Act 265 of 2016 is repealed.
SECTION 3. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
