I think everyone has copies. That's OK, Alright? Senator Hise. What this amendment does, we couldn't get the PCS out but this removes predominantly the referendum on it this was a former girls scout camp, the city is in full agreement, probably owes full agreement on this end, I think to hold a referendum that's going forward and puts the effective date at June 30th, that's why it's moving quickly because hopefully that's a good day for tax purposes to align with the fiscal year. so don't have to pre-rate them. Thank you Senator Hise, are you OK with that Representative Hager? He's OK with it. We do have a motion from Senator Cook discussion, all in favor aye? Any opposed? Passes and Senator Hise, you want to handle that bill?

This is probably what we will have now, your motion in the discussion, hearing none all approve "aye" Any oppose? Alright okay [xx], and the last one on the docket is house bill 526, the town of Norwood deannexation, and representative Bolan [xx], the floor is yours. Thank you Mr chairman, house bill 526 is a deannexation bill for most residents who live on Lake Tilllery in the town of Norwood, the city limits ends at high water mark, but there was a false annexation bill that was passed back in 2004, for this new group of folks and extend part of the lake in an effort to tax their piers and  property that they lease from Duke Energy, so this is just bringing the city boarder in line with where the rest of the boarder is for the town and make sure that all the residents are treated equally and that there is no issue in terms of public safety as the who is going to go out and handle issues on the like to be able to be an emergency out there would certain ask you to support also let you know apart that the town this past resolution opposing this DNX session, but it was not a unanimous resolution so are there some disagreements on it? But this is an effort to make sure we are treating everybody fairly in the town. Senator McInnis.  Thank sir and I at least say I represent on the Senate side at that village there, we all want to make sure we've got a business that runs there, Representative Brad's put in the tax Id number on it, we believe

there might be a second little small sliver on the tax side that have been able, we are going to work together and if we do need to add some more on the floor, we will fix that on the floor so we're okay okay. Any other discussion on this bill? Okay, I do have a motion just a minute. Anyone in the audience to speak on this bill since there was some of the city folks that didn't particularly want it, but want the unanimous resolution I they did have one opposing it. Question Senator Tom Mr. Chair. My only comment is this seems to be very reasonable and it would be nice to bring this in conformity so we start we start developing a standard round the state. This is exactly how property lines are on like Norman so I absolutely support this. Okay seeing no other hands I have a from [xx], Senator Wade. Thank you Mr. Chairman. Rep Burr, are you telling me the city is not for this but we're doing it That'd be correct Okay, thank you I just wanted to be sure Well, thank you Senator Wade. I think that was brought out and no one came to oppose it so I've got a feeling their heartburn is not bad and maybe the antacid is already started to work. I do have a motion from on senator Raddell, my question senator Blue you look. Yeah I am just trying to make sure that you said you de-annexing the just several peers primarily Back 200 peers cause I saw it's over 1, 000 acres. How big is the town? The town there's 2500 -3, 000 residents there but a lot of it are like homes, second homes for individuals. Okay. Alright, seeing no other hand we have a motion. All in a discussion hearing none all in favor Aye, Aye! Any opposed how you want to handle this one? Senator Magnus Senator Magnus, that's the orders. Alright, seeing no other items on the agenda the meeting is over. Thank you.
