[SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Moore, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Rise for a question of privilege. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman may state question.

You all may not know this, but I’ll share it with you happily. Representative Steve Ross spent 16 years on the Burlington City Council including 2 terms as Mayor.

Members, as the pages are coming forward, the Chair is advised there may be a technical matter that we have to take care of on a bill that we disposed of last week, so there may be one other vote before we’ll leave the chamber today, so I would appreciate if you’d stick around. We don’t expect it to take very long. Pages, I want to welcome you. We’re going to have the Clerk read your name. As he reads your name, if you could step forward and wave so we can connect your name to a face. The Clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Calyx Anderson, Archdale. Dianna Arblaze, Wake.

We hope over the course of the week you get an opportunity to get to know your fellow pages a little bit better and a better understanding of the legislative process, and I hope I have the opportunity to sit down and speak with many of you, as I try to do when the pages are here. We appreciate your service, and I hope my members will join me in welcoming you and thanking you in advance. You may now return to your stations. The House will be at ease for a moment while we determine whether or not we will take up that one additional action. Members, while we’re waiting on the decision about the disposition of the last bill, I’ve been advised by Representative Larry Hall that the Democrat caucus has an event tomorrow night, so we’re going to move session up to 2 to make sure that you’ll be able to get to that event on time. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. Speaker. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Speciale, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I’d like to request to be recorded as voting “yes” on H1052. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman will be recorded as voting aye.

...the most gracious congratulations I've every heard. [laughter] Representative Shepard. [tape break] Ladies and gentleman, we now are in a position to take up the last item on the calendar. Representative Moore will be recognized to explain the reason behind us and then we'll be recognized for a motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Having voted on the prevailing side, I move that the House do reconsider the vote on third reading of Senate Bill 38, short title Amend Environmental Laws 2014, would ask to be recognized to debate my motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to debate the motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you. Mr. Speaker, members, this bill, this was the environmental amend laws that we passed last week. The staff discovered an error in one of the amendments and we need to, for procedural purposes, go back and do the third reading again just to explain that amendment. Representative Arp had an amendment that the correct amendment was actually engrossed but the amendment that showed up on the members dashboards was different. It's a subtle difference. I'll even let Representative Arp explain that. It wasn't a major difference but out of an abundance of caution we felt it appropriate to have a vote to make sure we fixed that technical issue. I'll be glad to answer any questions if there are any, but that's all this is and I would urge the body to vote yes on the motion to reconsider and then I understand Representative Arp's going to send forth a perfecting amendment to correct that issue. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate on the motion? If not, the question before the house is the motion by Representative Moore to reconsider the vote on the House Committee Substitute for Senate Bill 38. All in favor vote aye, all opposed vote no. The Clerk will open the vote. The Clerk will let the machine record the vote. One hundred and ten having voted in the affirmative and none in the negative. The motion has passed. The House Committee Substitute to Senate Bill 38, the Clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] House Committee Substitute for Senate Bill 38, General Assembly of North Carolina enacts. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Arp, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Send forth an amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentlemen is recognized to send forth an amendment. The Clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Arp moves to amend the bill on page 15 by inserting the following between lines 48 and 49. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to debate the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Basically what was in the original bill was the repeal of the energy audits. What this does is there was a mix up in the version so what this does is just make technical corrections to add a title and make corresponding conforming changes. I ask for your support. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Samuelson, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To debate the motion, the bill, whichever one we're on. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The lady is recognized to debate the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you. As the sponsor of that bill, we all supported this change last time. It's just a little technical glitch. We urge you to support it again. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate on the amendment? If not, the question before the House is the passage of the amendment to the House Committee Substitute for Senate Bill 38 sent forth by Representative Arp. All in favor vote aye, all opposed vote no. The Clerk will open the vote. The Clerk will let the machine record the vote. One hundred and ten having voted in the affirmative, none in the negative. The amendment passes. We're now back on the bill, as amended, for a third reading. Representative Harrison, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To briefly debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The lady is recognized to debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Ladies and gentlemen of the House, we had a good discussion this last week. I just wanted to remind members that despite the fact that this is a much better bill than what the Senate sent over to us, there are some problems with the isolated wetlands, air permits, the landfill, the construction and demolition landfill piece, and inland hazards and a few others. So I'll be voting no and encourage you to vote no. Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Samuelson, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The lady is recognized to debate the bill, as amended. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Just wanted to remind everybody that I think only 12 of us voted against it last time. This really is a good bill. We did a lot of things for a lot of people. I urge your support. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Wilkins, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To speak on the bill, as amended, Mr. Speaker. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to debate the bill, as amended. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Members, I whole heartedly...

... supported this bill last week. I might do it a little less passionately tonight but I still support it. Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative McGrady, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Speak on the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to debate the bill as amended. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I add my support for what Representative Samuelson said. Remember we’re going to get into negotiations or conferencing potentially with the Senate. I was really happy with the broad bipartisan support for this bill; it helps us in terms of negotiations that might move forward, and so I really hope we’ll have a similar vote tonight. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate? If not, the question before the House is the passage of the House Committee Substitute to Senate Bill 38 as amended on its third reading. All in favor vote aye. All opposed vote no. The Clerk will open the vote. The Clerk will lock the machine and record the vote. 97 having voted in the affirmative and 13 in the negative, the house Committee Substitute to Senate Bill 38 as amended has passed its third reading. The bill will be engrossed and sent to the Senate by a special message. Ladies and gentlemen, that completes the calendar. We appreciate your indulgence. In spite of the disruption, we had a productive session with several bills added to the calendar. Notices and announcements? Representative Pierce, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Do you have schedule for the week that we could…? For the session for the week? Thank you, sir. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes, well as I said, tomorrow we are going to move the calendar up. The Chair doesn’t necessarily expect a long debate tomorrow but I’ve been wrong before, so we moved it up so we can make sure we can honor the commitment that the Democratic caucus has tomorrow night. On Wednesday we may potentially have an earlier session, and on Thursday we would anticipate probably noon. The biggest wildcard in that… We’re going to try and do it as early as possible. At this point we do not anticipate a Friday session but please stay tuned, but at this time I really have to defer. Depending on whether or not the Senate intends to engage in conference this week, it may require us to move the calendar around, but we’ll give you notice as soon as we have to make any changes, but for now we think you can plan on what I just said. Further notices and announcements. The time tomorrow will be 2 pm. Representative Moore is recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. Speaker, I move that subject to ratification of bills, messages from the Senate, committee reports, conference reports, re-referral of bills and resolutions, appointment of conferees, introduction of bills and resolutions and modifications to the calendar, that the House do now adjourn to reconvene on Tuesday June 24th 2014 at 2 pm. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Moore moves, seconded by Representative Brown, that the House do now adjourn, subject to ratification of bills and resolution, receipt of messages from the Senate, committee reports, conference reports, re-referral of bills and resolutions, appointment of conferees and modifications to the calendar to reconvene on Tuesday June 24th at 2 pm.
