Retirees from a state agency also may have withheld from their state retirement benefits their membership dues for the South Carolina State Employees' Association and for the South Carolina Troopers' Association.

Dues for the South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers' Association and for the South Carolina Wildlife Law Enforcement Officers' Association may also be deducted from the compensation of state employees and retirees and paid over to this association in the same manner other dues under this section are deducted and paid over. The same restrictions and conditions as apply to the other deductions under this section also apply to the deductions of dues for the South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers' Association and the South Carolina Wildlife Law Enforcement Officers' Association."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
