Casey Edwards and Justin Williams,

Petitioners,

v.

The State of South Carolina,

Respondent.


ORDER


This matter is before the Court on a petition in this Court’s original jurisdiction requesting a declaratory judgment that the South Carolina Legislature may request, accept, and distribute the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 funds, which the General Assembly included in the 2009-10 General Appropriations Bill, and that the Governor must execute the appropriations bill as enacted by the Legislature.

Because of the urgency of this matter, respondent shall serve and file its reply to the petition and answer to the complaint no later than noon on Tuesday, May 26, 2009.  The copies filed with this Court must be actually received by that time.  No further briefing will be necessary.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
