TO APPROVE REGULATIONS OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION, RELATING TO VOCATIONAL GRANTS FOR THE UPDATING OF EXISTING VOCATIONAL PROGRAMS AND THE IMPLEMENTATION OF NEW VOCATIONAL PROGRAMS (REPEAL), DESIGNATED AS REGULATION DOCUMENT NUMBER 2010, PURSUANT TO THE PROVISIONS OF ARTICLE 1, CHAPTER 23, TITLE 1 OF THE 1976 CODE.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The regulations of the Board of Education, relating to vocational grants for the updating of existing vocational programs and the implementation of new vocational programs (repeal), designated as Regulation Document Number 2010, and submitted to the General Assembly pursuant to the provisions of Article 1, Chapter 23, Title 1 of the 1976 Code, are approved.
SECTION 2. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
SUMMARY AS SUBMITTED BY PROMULGATING AGENCY.
This regulation includes requirements regarding purchasing equipment, application submission, equipment application instructions, and application review process. This regulation should be repealed because the wording of Section 59-53-1950 which specifies how funds are to be spent for the purchase of vocational training equipment is contained in this regulation. The statute specifies that the highest priority in funding for vocational education must be given to job preparatory, occupational proficiency courses related to:
(a) current high technology trades, businesses, and industries;
(b) high labor market and high labor intensive demand;
(c) small business management; and
(d) new and emerging trades, industries, and businesses which foster and enhance the economic development, stability, and diversification of the state's economy. The regulation should be repealed.
