TO RECOGNIZE THE MONTH OF APRIL 2019 AS "ZERO TOLERANCE FOR LITTER MONTH" IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND TO URGE THE STATE'S LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS TO WORK TOGETHER THIS MONTH AND THROUGHOUT THE YEAR FOR A CLEANER COMMUNITY, THUS PRESERVING THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF OUR COMMUNITY, OUR STATE, AND OUR COUNTRY.
Whereas, the State of South Carolina has an abundance of natural resources, including old-growth forests, miles of shoreline, rolling hills, and scenic mountains; and
Whereas, litter detracts from economic development, areas of commerce, and real estate values; and
Whereas, littering is illegal and a crime against nature and the citizens of this State; and
Whereas, South Carolina law enforcement agencies serve to protect citizens from the dangers of litter on our roads and in our state forests, parks, and communities; and
Whereas, Zero Tolerance for Litter is a month-long law enforcement campaign focusing on enforcing state litter laws and making citizens aware of their responsibility in litter prevention; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina Senate call upon all state and local elected officials to make litter prevention a priority in their districts. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate:
That the members of the South Carolina Senate, by this resolution, recognize the month of April 2019 as "Zero Tolerance for Litter Month" in South Carolina and to urge the State's law enforcement officers to work together this month and throughout the year for a cleaner community, thus preserving the natural beauty of our community, our state, and our country.
