South Carolina Considers New ATV Law After Boy’s Death
Posted on Apr 22, 2011After trying and failing for the past six years, the South Carolina House has passed “Chandler’s Law,” a new bill that would regulate ATV use across the state. The bill, which will now go to the state senate for approval, was named after a Columbia boy who died in an ATV accident in 2003.
The sponsors of the bill include representatives Nelson Hardwick of Surfside Beach, Ted Vick of Chesterfield, Ronnie Sabb of Greeleyville, Carl Anderson of Georgetown, Jim Battle of Marion, and David Weeks of Sumter. The House passed the bill on Thursday with a vote of 65-42. While Chandler’s Law has cleared both the House and Senate twice in past years, Gov. Mark Sanford has vetoed it on both occasions.
