SECTION    3.    Upon the effective date of this act:

(A)(1)    The President of the Senate has an unconditional right to intervene on behalf of the Senate in a state court action and may provide evidence or argument, written or oral, if a party to that court action challenges the constitutionality of this act, the validity of this legislation, or any action of the General Assembly.

(2)    The Speaker of the House of Representatives has an unconditional right to intervene on behalf of the House of Representatives in a state court action and may provide evidence or argument, written or oral, if a party to that court action challenges the constitutionality of this act, the validity of this legislation, or any action of the General Assembly.

(B)(1)    In a federal court action that challenges the constitutionality of this act, the validity of this legislation, or any action of the General Assembly, the President of the Senate has standing to intervene as a party on behalf of the Senate, to file an amicus brief, or to provide evidence or argument, written or oral, in accordance with the federal rules of procedure, irrespective of whether any other officer of the State has appeared in the action. A federal court presiding over any action in which the State of South Carolina, or any state agency, is a named party is requested to allow the President, on behalf of the Senate, to participate in any such action as a party.

(2)    In a federal court action that challenges the constitutionality of this act, the validity of this legislation, or any action of the General Assembly, the Speaker of the House of Representatives has standing to intervene as a party on behalf of the House of Representatives, to file an amicus brief, or to provide evidence or argument, written or oral, in accordance with the federal rules of procedure, irrespective of whether any other officer of the State has appeared in the action. A federal court presiding over any action in which the State of South Carolina, or any state agency, is a named party is requested to allow the Speaker, on behalf of the House of Representatives, to participate in any such action as a party.

(C)(1)    A request to intervene or the participation of the President of the Senate as a party or otherwise, in any action challenging the constitutionality of a state statute, the validity of legislation, or any action of the General Assembly does not constitute a waiver of:

(a)    legislative immunity or legislative privilege for any individual legislator, legislative officer, or legislative staff member; or

(b)    sovereign immunity or any other rights, privileges, or immunities of the State that arise under the United States Constitution or the South Carolina Constitution.

(2)    A request to intervene or the participation of the Speaker of the House of Representatives as a party or otherwise, in any action challenging the constitutionality of a state statute, the validity of legislation, or any action of the General Assembly does not constitute a waiver of:

(a)    legislative immunity or legislative privilege for any individual legislator, legislative officer, or legislative staff member; or

(b)    sovereign immunity or any other rights, privileges, or immunities of the State that arise under the United States Constitution or the South Carolina Constitution.

(D)    The State Election Commission and the Attorney General must notify the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives within twenty-four hours of the receipt of service of a complaint that challenges the validity of this act.

(E)    In any action in which the Senate or the House of Representatives intervenes or participates pursuant to this section, the Senate and the House of Representatives must function independently from each other in the representation of their respective bodies, unless otherwise agreed to by the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

(F)(1)    The Senate is hereby authorized and empowered to employ attorneys other than the Attorney General to defend any law enacted creating legislative or congressional districts.

SECTION    6.    Any person elected or appointed to serve, or serving, as a member of any board, commission, or committee to represent a congressional district, whose residency is transferred to another district by a change in the composition of the district, may serve, or continue to serve, the term of office for which he was elected or appointed; however, the appointing or electing authority shall appoint or elect an additional member on that board, commission, or committee from the district which loses a resident member as a result of the transfer to serve until the term of the transferred member expires. When a vacancy occurs in the district to which a member has been transferred, the vacancy must not be filled until the full term of the transferred member expires.

SECTION    7.    If any section, subsection, paragraph, subparagraph, sentence, clause, phrase, or word of this act is for any reason held to be unconstitutional or invalid, such holding shall not affect the constitutionality or validity of the remaining portions of this act, the General Assembly hereby declaring that it would have passed this act, and each and every section, subsection, paragraph, subparagraph, sentence, clause, phrase, and word thereof, irrespective of the fact that any one or more other sections, subsections, paragraphs, subparagraphs, sentences, clauses, phrases, or words hereof may be declared to be unconstitutional, invalid, or otherwise ineffective.
