(B)    Notwithstanding any other provision of law, during Fiscal Year 2020-2021, funds that would otherwise have been transferred to the South Carolina Retiree Health Insurance Trust Fund from the operating account for the state's employee health insurance program pursuant to Section 1-11-705(I)(2) may remain in the operating account for the state's employee health insurance program.

Time effective

SECTION    2.    This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.

Ratified the 27th day of January, 2021.

Approved the 29th day of January, 2021. -- S.
