2017 South Carolina Code of Laws
Title 27 - Property and Conveyances
CHAPTER 8 - CONSERVATION EASEMENT ACT
Section 27-8-120. Prospective repeal; termination of South Carolina Conservation Bank.

Universal Citation: SC Code § 27-8-120 (2017)

Chapter 59, Title 48 of the 1976 Code and Sections 2 through 6 of this act are repealed effective July 1, 2018, unless reenacted or otherwise extended by the General Assembly. However, the South Carolina Conservation Bank established by this act may continue to operate as if Chapter 59, Title 49 of the 1976 Code was not repealed until the South Carolina Conservation Bank Trust Fund is exhausted or July 1, 2021, whichever first occurs. Any balance in that trust fund on July 1, 2021, reverts to the general fund of the State. Repeal does not affect any rights, obligations, liabilities, or debts due the South Carolina Conservation Bank. For these purposes, after the bank's termination, the State Fiscal Accountability Authority is the bank's successor, except that, after the bank's termination, the board's voting rights provided in the former provisions of Section 48-59-80(F), (G), (H), and (I) of the 1976 Code are devolved upon the Department of Natural Resources Board, and any contribution to the trust fund required pursuant to the former provisions of Section 48-59-80(H) of the 1976 Code must be made to the Heritage Trust Program.

HISTORY: 2002 Act No. 200, Section 7; 2012 Act No. 162, Section 1, eff May 14, 2012.
