For what purpose does the gentleman from Gaston, Representative Tobitt arise? Thank you Mr. Speaker. Permission to speak on the motion recognized for a motion I move we concur to the [xx] the gentleman moves that the house do concur and the senate committee substitute number two for house bill 13 the gentleman is recognized to explain or to debate the motion thank you Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the house, this bill went through the house, it went over to the senate and senate did add some additional I guess you call it senate preferences to the bill.

If you recall the initial intent was to make sure that any child, when entering the school system for the first time in the state of North Carolina be provided a their health assessment, not be provided one, but must have a health assessment. So that was the initial intent of the bill, when it went over to the senate, the senate dug a little bit deeper into it and what they determine that there was seven forms being offered out there and so their effort was to condense that to only one form they did remove some of the the language out of the current health assessment form that they felt was objectionable to parents and I concur with that. That they put a little bit more of the onus on apparent. A few more qualifiers. The statute was amended in several places to clarify the only one health assessment trans-middle form to disable either cities or counties throughout North Carolina to come up with an additional one or any other modifications too. And I would appreciate your support. If there are any questions, hopefully I am able to answer them, and that's the end of my remarks Mr. Speaker. Thank you. For what purpose does the lady from Mecklenburg, Rep. Cotham, arise? Thank you, Mr. Speaker. To ask bill sponsor some questions. Would the gentleman from Gaston yield to the lady from Mecklenburg? It would be an absolute pleasure, Mr. Speaker. He yields. Thank you Mr. Speaker thank you, Representative Torbett. I just am briefly going through the new conference reports so just a few questions if you can help me just to understand. It says that a child will not be permitted to attend school if they do not have this health assessment completed within 30 days. So question number one, Mr. Speaker, is that a change from the health systems where we went from 60 days to 30. Mr. Speaker. Thank you if I could one of the changes in the senate and to answer your question I believe at years and let me senator Dee Davis pretty much offered amendments to a notice deficiency within 30 calendar days of the first of the child's first day of attendance also what they did is make sure that the child was adequately provided with any test books and school fund these digital devices to used at home during a duration of that absence and further more during that period there was some concern about the record and senator Todd changed simple word from attach to provide. So they did address the time period, but they came in and made sure that a child would not be have unequal advantage or be unequal to other children within the provision by providing them additional language to ensure they get proper text books and anything else school often way digital devices. I thinking that's you might be [xx] or not apologize. OK follow up Mr. Speaker. Does the gentleman yield to an additional question?   Absolutely. He yields. Thank you Mr. Speaker and Rep. Torbett and I see I think some new language starting on line 15 that a child shall not and I'm sorry for not looking at you, but I'm trying to look on the screen a child shall not be suspended for absences accrued for failure to present the health assessment. So if they're not going to be suspended and if they're not allowed to go to class, where would they be? Would you direct me to what page Representative I believe this is the first page, I'm sorry the printers. That's right, my line 15 says It's a general assembly North Carolina enacts on page one line 15. Page two Yes Ma'am. What that would be, it's a currently doing in the kindergarten process, so I don't think it's any different to what we're currently doing in the kindergarten process, other than now we're applying that to any grade level and there was some concerns about that I understand from the senate and that's why they added the additional, make sure by you understand, you take your text books and get any kind of digital device. So, is this is for my clarification, just a follow up? The lady wishes to ask additional question, the gentleman yields. The lady may proceed. And I'm just trying to think from personal experience, so where would the child be physically if they're not allowed to attend class but they're not technically suspended but they will be absent.

So are they marked absent for health reasons, and then my next question that goes with that just made me wonder about the average daily membership if they're not physically present in school especially in the beginning of the school year because that's where we do the count. How will we know that that is a student and we should fund them so that they can get their text books and materials. That was what VPI would be addressing. I don't have good solid answers for you, and the reason I don't is because that, it puts more the onus on the parent. Your initial question, where would they be? Well, by having the parent notified they have to have a health assessment and if they haven't got that done, then of course they are not going to be allowed into the classroom with the other kids because that could be a health risk. Similar to what it is now in kindergarten so that same health risk is being adapted for every year which is to start today. So the wait that determination was based heavier on the risk to not only one child but other children in the classroom as opposed to the concern of what is that child doing for 30 days. That's why they offer some additional language to make sure that what wherever that parent had that child in a 30 day period wherever that might be that they do have and the parent understands they have access to all the educational tools that a child in the classroom has and last follow up Mr speaker. Does the gentleman from yield? Yes sir thank you very much. Thank you Representative Torbett for allowing me to ask so many questions. You said in your remarks that there were some language removed from the North Carolina Health Assessment? That's correct. Tell me what? I have the assessment, can you tell me what was removed? Mr Speaker? Yes sir. I don't know the proper way to get a copy of what she has I don't have one of those with me The motion to concur on house bill 13 will be temporary displaced. House Bill 553, the clerk will read. Representative McGrady, Whitmire, Lambeth and Dixon House Bill 553 appeal to the entire authority of cities and counties to adopt ordinances regarding animals General Assembly of North Carolinian enaccts. For what purpose does the gentleman from Henderson Representative McGrady do you rise? To make a motion. The gentleman is recognised for a motion. Mr Speaker I move that the house do concur with the changes is made to house bill 553 speak on the motion. The gentleman has moved that the house do concur to the senate committee substitute for house bill 5 53 gentlemen from Haiderson is recognized to debate the motion thanks Mr vigar[sp?] colleagues this is an animal bill but it is not the monkey bill. This is a bill that relates to livestock and specifically to provide that the department of agriculture has responsibilities for setting standard care with respect to livestock which does not include horses and the certain name they want changed they wanted to exclude from the definition of the animal covered small flocks of chickens and I don't want to get into a chicken debate so I have moved to concur I don't think it changes the bill substantially in any way that I'm aware of although there are folks that are supporting the bill were quit fine with the amendment and I'll leave it at that. Thank you Mr. Speaker. Members before continuing with debate the Chair is happy to extend the courtesy to the floor to the honorary page Mr Ian[sp?] Dollar of Wake county thank you for being with us today please join me welcome. Members further on behalf of all members of the house the Chair is pleased to extend the courtesies of the gallery to the ECU advancement services out of Greenville and Pitt county Miss Karen[sp?] Whitehead if that group is with us Greenville would you stand and let us welcome you to the house of representatives. purpose does the lady from Gilfred Rep. Harrison rise. To debate the motion. Lady has the floor to debate the motion.  Thank you Mr. Speaker. Ladies and Gentlemen I do

respect my good friend from Henderson county. I do rise in opposition to this motion. I actually agree with the senate change with accepting small for much to chicken, but the underline bill is a problem because it ties the hands of local government that want to enact strict sends of care face to these intelligent and sensitive animals, and I disagree [xx]. Then I encourage you to vote no. Thank you.  Further discussion, further debate. The question before the house is the motion to concur with the senate committee substitute for house bill 553 those faoring[sp?] the motion will vote aye and those opposed will vote no. The clerk will open the vote The clerk will lock the machine and record the vote, with 88 having voted in the affirmative and 16 in the negative, the motion to concur has been adopted, the bill will be enrolled and sent to the governor. Representative Toby, the gentleman indicated we are ready to return. We'll return to the debate on the temporally displaced motion to concur with House Bill 13. Representative from Mencabar was asking the gentleman from Gartson a question, which member desires to go first? That would be me Mr Speaker. The gentleman from Gartson is recognized to debate the motion Thank you I was taking a tack and it was taking the long route so we found this simple route to address the question. The form as you know is annulled, as far as change will probably entirely change and be capsuled and reformatted, and let me tell you what the form will have on it, and perhaps that will be an easier way to I am not going to go over all of it, it is rather written in lengthy but I'll refer to member to page two, beginning on line 40 and it says just previous line 38 the health assessment transmental[sp?] form shall include only the items listed below now that's where it begins. I'm going to jump over to kind of middle this which is on page three, and tell you this some of the basics atleast a medicate prescribes state in a list of student allergies, type of allergies so on, guys regarding special diet for students. Some of the information previously request has been re-condensed in such comments as this as health related recommendation to enhance students grow performance, information whether the student has passed the vision screening concerns, information on whether the student passed the hearing screening concerns. The school medication authorization for diabetes care plan asthma action health care plan for other conditions which the school needs to be aware of, that's the generic information that will be on the new form when it comes out perhaps that better clarifies the question my good friend from [xx] And to be clear members representative [xx] had been recognised ask to respond to a inquiry from representative [xx] that what that was that was not her second opportunity debate purpose lady for [xx] Thank you Mr. Speaker I guess just debate the bill The lady has the floor to debate the motion to concur Thank you Mr. Speaker and members and thank you for the indulgence for so many questions, I still have a lot of questions to I guess I will have to vote no on this motion to concur, I appreciate the information represented to it, just listed what is in the bill I think I'm having some concern is this going to be a sheet of paper off course there is value in health assessments, and we want o know if our children need extra health, how we can accommodate their needs and want to keep them safe and to make sure that they're able to learn in school, some of the language that I'm looking at in the way the bill is written seems more that it's just a, kind of, check the box, here's the record, here it is, I don't really know what is going to be done with this information to help the child, with that I am a bit concerned about the child not being able to attend school for 30 days and yet that won't be marked as a suspension but I'm wondering is that going to prevent a child from being legally enrolled in a school which therefore impacts how average daily membership, how we fund the school such child will not be eligible then as I take it to receive home bound services because they would not be legally enrolled and I just worry very much, what's happening to that child. In Mecklenburg County I can tell you the wait to get

to public health clinic is over 60 days with the average being 90 days for an appointment so I just have concerns that we've lowered that even more to 30 and the other thing is if the child enters that kindergarten and they  doing this assessment which we have been doing for sometime, a lot can change for the health of as child over their cost of education So, why isn't it being done again, before really concerned about the child age five or age age 6, what about when they are age 13, and I do worry that distincts a bit strange to me and so I wishwe have more information this is really big policy and I know that we are all concern with the health of our children and we just don't want to give more paper work for a school and really give over extremely confidential information, the obesity of our child, family issues, genetic disorders, mental conditions, it is very sensitive information and I just want to be very thoughtful about that. So at this time I will though read, Thank you. For what purpose does the gentleman from Robeson Representative Graham rise? Thank you Mr. Speaker can I have a question for the bill sponsor. Would the gentleman from Gaston yield to gentleman from Robinson?   Will be an honor Mr. Speaker. He yields. Thank you Mr. Torbet I have a question and I'm doing this because I'm kind of confused on the language in the bill and my question when a child officially enters kindergarten they are allowed to be enrolled even if they don't have the health assessment so the child can officially enter on day one as an enrolled student in that school without the health assessment. Mr Speaker it's my understanding that of course you enroll your child for the grade level whatever this case is kindergarten. My understanding that name goes on the list, then you're asked to provide certain documentations, specifically today in kindergarten since that's the only year that this is asked for currently, then of course your basic information of which one is the health assessment. So that same very simple process is just now being expanded to whatever grade level the child enters for the time, and I hope that the thoughts that same less and optimistic that we're presented generally from Mecklenburg, that what we're to do is to ensure that the safety and the learning education ability of that child at whatever grade level, and the children that child will be entering in the classroom with is where we're trying to protect. That protection today in North Carolina is nonexistent, and so the opportunity and optimism of that is that now any child in any grade in any classroom North Carolina, has some safety margin to that anyone has been provided or has been asked about provide a health assessment to protect not only but all individual, learning capability and ability but also there to cheer the classroom too. For what purpose does lady from Missouri, representative Steven a rise? For a point of order I mean it's thursday and I think for the hour we're anxious and we got things we want to say but the debate on previous one and the debate on this one seem to be the underline bill instead of the motion to concur changes that came over but wanting to debate the entire underlying bill and as I understand, that is not proper procedure. The Chair thinks that the lady in, it is the ruling of the chair that in order to understand the motion to concur you must understand what changes were made in the senate and therefore based on the president of the house it will be in order to discuss the changes that were made in the senate and the chair believes that is what's been going on gentleman from Robinson Representative Grant, what purpose do you rise? I just have a follow up Mr. Speaker. Would the gentleman from Gaston yield the gentleman from Robinson? Certainly Mr. Speaker. Just want to make sure I understand. I want to support this but I want to make sure I understand what I'm supporting. Thank you for the support. No child is eligible for entry into kindergarten. Enrollment and enter is two different things?

That's my understanding Sir. So you you're telling me that the child can enroll but is not eligible to enter and sit in that classroom. I will double check for you, but that's my understanding. Thank you Mr. Speaker. For what purpose does the gentleman from [xx] Representative [xx] rise? The Chair? For what purpose does the gentleman from Wales rise? Question for Representative Cotham please? I have a question for Representative Cotham. Will the lady from Mecklenburg yield to gentleman from Yes Mr. Speaker. She yields. Thank you Representative [xx]. I want to ask you a question about ADM Camp for your experience in the school, could you explain to us exactly how the beginning of the year works in reference to that ADN Camp? It's been a while I just wanted to make sure that they were physically present, because that is what we always looked for, was the child physically present in the class to be counted for the first 20 days, and so if they were not there then it was marked an absent, and if they were home bound but still enrolled, then that was okay, so that's why I asked those questions specifically to that Can I speak to the motion. The gentleman from Wilkes has the floor to debate the motion. With Rep. Torbett's comments about how that works. Rep. Graham, they are very accurate. At the beginning of the school year there are multiple AVM counts that take place to ensure that the numbers of children that are enrolled that the proper numbers come down. Even with the fiscal staff, I've addressed the issue of trying to do multiple AVM counts, maybe a midyear AVM count. They said the fluctuation of students is less that 2% and also there's money set down as a buffer for these kids moving. So the concern that's being argued about an improper count of the kids and the child will not be funded because they did not have their health form is inaccurate. The money's is set down with the buffer to where we are assuring that our kids are funded regardless of the health form or if they have to sit home for a week because they don't have it. So a concern with that part to the motion, I don't think it's a valid argument. Thank you. For what purpose does the lady from Wake, Rep. Adcock, arise? To debate the bill. The lady has the floor to debate the motion. Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I'm going to speak in support of the motion to concur. While I would have been more satisfied if we had stuck to the 60 days that the House amended this bill to say, I do think this is good public health policy. Currently the law that upon entrance to public school at age five then a child has to have a health assessment. I think this bill extends that policy and makes it consistent for a child regardless of their age at the time they enter school and creates a level playing field when it comes that child's health and well being. For those reasons, I plan to support this motion. Thank you For what purpose does the gentleman from Cumberland, Rep. Glazier, arise? To debate the motion, Mr. Speaker. The gentleman has the floor to debate the motion Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I voted for the bill when it left the House, and I think there were some good amendments made and I appreciated the work Rep. Torbett did. I also and in then complete a cord with the policy, the health policy here but I do think there's an issue in language in section, the first section, section two of the bill under 138 - 440 and it may have come about when the senate made some language changes but I want to read the couple of lines which I think create a real problem and I think this should be corrected but here's my concern, it's a bit on the line of Rep. Graham's so it says every parent shall submit provide proof of the health assessment who's presented for admission in kindergarten or whatever grade for the first time, then it says the health assessment shall be made no more than 12 months prior to the day the child would have been eligible for initial entry. Now the problem line, no child is eligible for initial entry unless the health assessment is essentially submitted. Then we go on and say but you have a 30 date efficiency period when you will be notified, sort of a 30 day period to try to get it if you didn't have it and then we say if that doesn't happen then there'll be a pension but you can make up the work. Well, I think that sentence says you're not eligible for initial entry unless the assessment is presented is in conflict with saying that you can be there earlier and be there for the 30 days and oh by the way we can suspend you. If you don't have it you can't suspend a student that's never being allowed to enter, so it seems to me there's just a lack problem, I think Representative Torbett is right about what ought to happen. That is I think what we're

trying to say is, you're allowed in sort of a probationary period, but you got to have your health assessment form. And you get 30 days to get it there if it's not there, and if it's not there then we're going to suspend you, you can make up the work but you got to get the form. But that's not what this is. I think this can clearly be read to say you're barred from initial entry. That sentence is in conflict and with that I would just ask Mr. Speaker if I could ask Representative Torbett a question. Would the gentleman from Gaston yield to to the gentleman from cambron? It would be an absolute delight I Mr speaker. He yields with delight. Thank you Mr speaker. Thank you Representative Torbett. My question is, rather and I don't really care which way we do it, but I wonder if you would be willing to postpone this until Monday to try establish what that sentence does, so that if it is just needed to be cleared, it either can be taken care of in a conference, or in an agreement to do it in technical corrections or somewhere else but I really do think that there is a legal problem with that first paragraph, unrelated to anything you are tying to do with the health policy and I just think a little bit of time might work till Monday to reflect on whether we are doing wrong here. Thank you for that question, Mr. Speaker. For what purpose does the gentleman from Gaston rise? Inquire the chair sir. Gentleman may state his inquiry. Would be inappropriate at this point that if I provided that request from the gentleman from Cumberland that the people making modification for the bill would not be attorneys changing other attorneys language but that general paper or some people trying to understand would make those alterations Representative Tobert is to chair opinion that is practice of the house representatives not to discriminate against any from of life including the attorneys. Thank you Mr. Speaker, any out there answer the gentleman form [xx] question is recognized to respond to the gentleman from Cumberland. Rep. Glazier, within the [xx], we have members of the legal profession providing language and members of the legal profession saying the language provided is not adequate enough to justify a just cause. With that said sir, if you assure me that you and I could get together at least by the time of session say Monday or Tuesday, that you from the attorney aspect and me from the just normal citizen aspects, that we can clarify any concerns you may have within reason that I will deem acceptable. I would be more than happy to pull this from the calendar today. Yes. For what purpose does the attorney for Cumberland rise? Members, did the chair understand the gentleman from Gaston would like to remove the motion to conquer from today's calendar and re-calendar for Monday, August 3rd? Mr. Speaker what purpose gentlemen from camel representative a raise? Thank you Mr speaker. Inquiry of the chair Gentlemen may state his inquiry it's my understanding that the gentleman from Gaston does intend to remove it I wonder if I could ask him one question before he makes such a motion would the gentleman from Gaston re-order the gentleman from Cumblin It's a most esteemed honor Mr. Speaker Thank you Mr. Speaker and thank you Mr. Tobby in your process of deliberation could you or consider sense that's technicality as I understand having worked from schools previous. All absence is must include some kind of code, and the codes arranged from illness to truancy to suspension to all these Senate can you divulge to how you code the absence of such a child? The answer to that if we're allowed to provide some type code for in absence for parental to prepare a proper documentation put a child in school I think we can do that, in short of that I don't have a good answer for u and we will look at that if Representative Glasier concurs, Thank you Mr. Speaker. Members the gentleman from Gaston has moved to remove the concurrent vote from on senate committee number two House Bill 13 until Monday August 3rd if there's no objection to that motion so chair will just order that change, so order House Bill 607 the clerk will read.
