On my last question William B. esquire found the bill at:
htpp://www.scstatehouse.gov/sess113 1999-2000/bills/4028.htm does this help any, Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX
Hi again.Yes, I see the bill, but I do not see any indication that it was ever passed and made law.In fact, if you look at the history of the bill on the webpage that you referred me to, it states: "Introduced, read first time, referred to Committee."By contrast, look at this bill: http://www.scstatehouse.gov/sess113_1999-2000/bills/4029.htmIt specifically states under the history section that it was "Unsigned, became law without signature of Governor." If the bill you're referring to were made into law, then it would state that on the page that you referenced.
Also, please see Title 44 of the South Carolina Code. You'll note that there is no Chapter 127: http://www.scstatehouse.gov/code/title44.phpI am truly sorry to give you this bad news, but please understand that it would be unfair to you (and unprofessional of me) to provide you with anything less than an honest response. However, if your concerns were not satisfactorily addressed, then please let me know, and I will be happy to clarify my answer.
Thank you so much for the research you did it was greatly appreciated. I really am puzzled at it too. That is why I asked the question! I will see if I can find out about the part where it was made law without govenors signature from some lawyer friend in town Monday. It really cost me some big bucks this week. But I'll keep on moving forward and try something else. Thank you for everything
