Read the first time February 7, 2001.




Whereas, Representative Terry E. Haskins, our beloved Speaker Pro Tempore, was struck down on October 24, 2000, at the young age of forty-five by a disease he fought valiantly for years; and

Whereas, Representative Terry E. Haskins was a dedicated public servant, having served House District 22 in Greenville County since 1987 and serving as the House Minority Leader from 1988 through 1992. In 1994, he was elected to the position he held until his untimely passing, that of Speaker Pro Tempore; and

Whereas, Representative Haskins played instrumental roles in the resolution of many pivotal issues the State faced in the 1990's; and

Whereas, Terry was the architect of the law that successfully and finally banished video gambling in the State of South Carolina; and

Whereas, Representative Haskins was one of the first Republicans to advocate, with sensitivity and courage, the removal of the Confederate Flag from the State House dome; and

Whereas, equipped with superb communicative skills, Representative Haskins developed a reputation for bringing together people of different positions and solving the thorniest of problems that came before the General Assembly; and

Whereas, Terry Haskins' oratorical skills and intellectual capacity were legendary at the State House and in other forums in which he participated; and

Whereas, it is with great sadness that the State witnessed the passing of this great statesman who leaves a legacy the breadth of which will not be equaled in the near future. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:

That the General Assembly authorizes the placing of a portrait of Representative Terry E. Haskins, with an appropriate ceremony of the House of Representatives, in the State House as a memorial and tribute to this great South Carolinian.

Be it further resolved that the Clerks of the House and Senate determine an appropriate artist to paint the portrait. The Clerks shall consult with the South Carolina Museum and the South Carolina Arts Commission. The portrait shall measure no more than thirty-six inches high and thirty-two inches wide. It must be hung on a wall located in the stairwell leading from the first to the second floor of the State House on its western side, which leads to the Chamber of the House of Representatives. The cost of obtaining the portrait must be paid by private contributions.
