Bordering Change

Posted: Updated:
Boundary commissions for both North and South Carolina have surveyed the border between the two states from Spartanburg to the ocean.

Commission leaders say they did not change the line, but determined the original line. They re-established the 334-mile boundary in May of last year.

This year, the Commission says it’s helping make the transition easier for residents and businesses affected. The Commission is proposing legislation that would make sure residents affected would not have to pay back taxes, would allow children to remain in their schools, and allow in-state tuition for both new and old.

The Commission says it’s not sure how many businesses and residential properties are affected.

It hopes the proposed legislation will be passed by both states by the 2016 legislative session.
