In 2011, the Legislative Services Agency, at the direction of the state legislature through a budget proviso, began providing electronic, online publication of the Acts and Joint Resolutions in lieu of the print distribution required by statute (SC Laws § 2-13-210). However, the code has not been amended to reflect this new protocol, and electronic publication is re-authorized each year in a budget measure. Disclaimer included at the beginning of each PDF indicates that the print version is the only official version. Opinions of the SC Court of Appeals are not available online. The SC Judicial Department makes PDF copies of Supreme Court opinions available on their website.
