As many of you know, every attempt possible was made to have this forum discussed thoroughly in committee to my knowledge Almost all of the items that did have some controversy to it had been pretty well fixed, it's been out there a long time we've had the opportunity to look at it and I have staff here that would be willing to Answer any questions that you have about this bill that I've been chosen to walk through the house. Any questions? Vote Green. >> For what purpose does the lady from Guilford, Representative Harrison rise? >> To ask the bill sponsor a question. >> Does the gentleman from [INAUDIBLE] yield l to the lady from Gilford. >> Yes sir. [CROSSTALK] >> Thank you Mr. speaker representative Dickson. I appreciate you're willingness and leadership in working out the mass controversial the writings on this bill I just noticed. Maybe I could just ask you about section three allowing wildlife management agencies to call Fill swan from aircraft. What does that mean exactly? >> That means that there will be people in the aircraft with a fire arm and they'll be shooting wild fair from the aircraft. [BLANK_AUDIO] >> For what purposed does the gentleman fromDurum representative Hall rise Question for the bill of sponsor. >> Does the gentleman from Dublin yield to the gentleman from Durom? >> Yes sir. >> Just a moment.

And i'm just trying to see in your mind is that really consistent with the constitutional provisions we have regarding hunting in North Carolina? >> Mr. Speaker I will refer to Mr. Sanders to answer that question. [BLANK_AUDIO] >> I don't think the staff can actually speak on the floor but, >> [LAUGH] Representative Hall it is for only those people who are authorized to engage in such activities not the general public it'll be sworn officers either state or federal. >> Another question. >> Does the gentleman yield to an additional question? >> Yes sir. >> He yields. Thank you Mr. Speaker, thank you Representative Dickson. And then my last follow up question and I'm really concerned about the rights of hunters and the heritage of North Carolina and maybe not to the extent that some people are trying to put forward additional constitutional amendments. But are you familiar with the current constitutional amendment and would this be in compliance with the new constitutional amendment to support hunting in North Carolina? >> I think it would be consistent. [BLANK_AUDIO] >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Roan, Representative Warren rise? >> To see if Representative Dickson would->> Does Does the gentleman from [UNKNOWN] yield to the gentleman from Roan? >> Yes sir. >> He yields. >> Representative Dickson when I first heard your initial response about an aircraft, I have to admit I want a little bit taken back myself. For clarification purposes I went back to the Bill as understand it and please correct me if I am Wrong. This is primarily for authorized personnel to do, primarily it looks like control of wildlife like the feral swine that it refers to here, would that be correct? This is not for recreation or- >> No it is only for feral swine which will becoming a tremendous problem relative to distraction but more importantly to be curing that those disease that will threaten a significant segment of our agricultural livestock economy followup. >> Does the gentleman yield to an additional question? >> Yes sir. >> He yields. >> So this would be advantageous for the remainder of the herds and basically to protect the integrity of the herd and the health of a herd of the swines or before [INAUDIBLE] or anything like that as well? [BLANK_AUDIO] [BLANK_AUDIO] It is an attempt to protect our domestically raised livestock from the feral swine that can carry significant disease, this would authorise employees of the wildlife resource commission and the employees of the federal agencies whose responsibility include wildlife management only to participate in this practice. >> I think it represented the way I can see that that is a very positive part of the bill, I can support that, thank you. [BLANK_AUDIO] >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Representative Millers rise? >> To send forth an amendment. >> The gentleman is recognized to send forth an amendment the clerk will read. Representative Millers moves to amend the bill on page 8 line 33 to page 9 line 4 by deleting the lines. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. >> Ladies and gentlemen I wanna drag your attention, a lot of things are going on this session, in the course we're wrapping up very soon, but this is a very important amendment that's before you today and what the amendment actually does is, it's my understanding section 10 has to do with another, again another extension to a renewable fuel's tax credit. Very briefly, we're the only state in the south east that actually has a mandate on a more expensive and unreliable form of energy. In addition we're a state that historically has subsidized that off the bags of the tax payers and the rate payers in our state. This renewable fuel facility tax credit was already extended into 2017 and has asked to be extended again. As I have said before this house this house floor when it comes to sun set, sun sets have often begged for moonlight which is usually never, ever happened,

sun sets usually always gets extended. By no means if this section remains in the bill you will be voting to subsidize a more expensive and unreliable form of energy off the bags of the tax payers and rate payers of this state. I humbly ask that you support this amendment to actually remove this section of the bill, this is an important amendment and I ask you to vote green. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Cumberland Representative Szoka arise? to debate the amendment. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. >> Ladies and gentlemen for those who weren't in the 12 o'clock meeting of finance committee yesterday this exact same amendment was offered by Representative Ager after a lot of discussions he withdrew this amendment. There was much discussion on it Basically and I can't speak to our representative Hager which chooses amendment. [COUGH] But basically some of the questions that were asked was, does this open the door to other companies to extend for minimal tax credits and the answer that came back was no it doesn't because of the provisions in this bill That say you had to have a letter of intent signed by September 1st of 2013 and to the best of anyone's knowledge and commerce, the only company that meets that is this one company. Another issue that came up was why this company, why this time? It was brought up that the owner of this company actually died during the period of time when this was being negotiated and that kinda threw a monkey wrench in their works and I think anybody who's ever owned a company can very well understand that or some other hurdles that have delayed them in completing the project. What businesses Want in any state, in any country is business certainty but the rules don't change once they've made business decisions and they've made plans, they've expanded firms. I truly believe that there's a good case for this company to receive this exception and that we should extend For this one company, they've been working on this for quite sometime, it's time they started this. They knew exactly what the rules were. They apply those rules in to know. Mr. Speaker. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Nash representative Collins rise? >> To see If representative Zosku would yield for a question. Does the gentleman from Cumberland yield to the gentleman from Nash. >> No sir not at this time. >> He does not yield, the gentleman from Cumberland continues to have the floor to debate the amendment. >> Thank you Mr. Speaker. As I was saying on topic of this uncertainty, I believe that we need to keep this in this bill. Offer business certainty. Like many in here we look at incentives and tax credit and sometimes we like one tax credit and argue for or against it. We don't like another one we don't like another one we don't argue for against it. I was in two different committee yesterday and I heard. This going finance and another in rules and on a different topic and we heard some people argue both sides of the same point. I do ask you to vote your conscious on this. Whether you vote green or red, vote your conscience but I believe you should vote red on this amendment and green on the firm bill. Thank you. >> What purpose does the gentleman from Mecklenburg Representative Jeter rise? >> To debate the amendment. >> Gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. >> I rise in opposition to the amendment, I certainly understand Representative Miller's point and I agree with him, I think that this is a unique situation for a company that had been planned well before the sun set provision was put in last year, the year before I think it was last year. One of the question that I asked, and if I ask committee to staff that was answered was does this open up the possibility for any other outliers, and I believe that's what What this is, an outlier. A company that tried to do it by the rules, had some things they couldn't control and they're asking for, in fairness, an exemption. And we were assured by staff, cause we went back later, that there were no other outliers, and for that reason I'd ask us to oppose this amendment And allow this process to move forward for a company that tried to play by the rules in all cases prior to us putting the sunset line which is in place. >> For what purpose does the lady from Wake representative Gary rise?>> To ask representative Szoku a Question >> Does the gentleman from Cumberland yield to the lady from Wake? >> I do >> He yields. >> Thank you, I'm sorry I cut part of the funding and discussion but I did hear in the discussion that there have been an initial

extension of this tax credit and it was extended to January one Of 17 which probably seven months from now that this should have been away and gone, so what was the circumstances regarding the first initial extension of the sunset? >> I will leave that [INAUDIBLE] will answer that question but a really don't know the answer to it. >> Inquire of the chair Lady may state her inquiry. >>Is there anyone on the floor who does know why it was extended the first time? >> Well the chair certainly doesn't. >> Thank you I rest my case. >> the gentleman from Mecklenburg, Representative Jeter activated his light, perhaps the lady would like to direct her question to the gentleman from Mecklenburg. >> Representative Jeter do you know why the initial- >> Does the gentleman yield? >> Yes I yield. >> Do you know why there was an initial extension? >> It is my understanding that the owner of the company passed away and that as a result of that they had a Structuring of the company organization and that delayed the process. That's how it's been explained to me so it was an untimely death by the owner of the company which could not have obviously been foreseen. >> Follow up. >> Does the gentleman yield to an additional question? >> Chair I volunteer. >> He yields. >> Do we know the timeline, that, is it resent? Is it [INAUDIBLE] >> With all due respect I honestly don't know that answer. I just know that was the reason that it did not get under the wire for the- >> Mr.Speaker. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Duplin Representative Dixon rise? >> Mr. Speaker I may have the answer for the Representative [INAUDIBLE]. >> Does the lady wish to direct her question to the gentleman from Duplin has yielded? >> I do. >> The gentleman is recognized to respond to the question. >> Representative Avila in reference to the first extension that was initiated because of the initial attempted financing arrangements Were not able to be complete and some of the permitting that was necessary in order to get the financing in arrangements, that was the reason for the first extension. All of that now has the reasons for the first request Extension have now been satisfied. >> I like to make a comment. >> The lady is recognized to debate the amendment. >> We put the rules in place and the people couldn't meet the rules so we changed the rules one time, and we're asking them to change them again. Thank you. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Wake, Representative Dollar rise? >> To debate the amendment. The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. >> Members of the house I ask that you vote no on this amendment. I mean this is $200 million investment that they have been working on for years, there are millions that have already been expended and this is jobs, in rural North Carolina so vote for jobs, vote for $200 million in investment and vote no on this amendment. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Gaston, Representative Hastings rise? To debate Mr Speaker. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. >> Well first of all I want to congratulate Representative Mills for sending forward an amendment where he can vote his conscience and I plan to vote with him and vote my conscience, and many of you know this environmental issues are very complicated and they involve A lot of federal issues that come into play and that's happened on some of our other bills in fact I remember one on our renewable energy standard where I voted not to kill it because at that time under the Obama administration's clean power plant rules that were at the time being promulgated There was the threat that if we eliminated our renewable energies standards the EPA might step in take over our state's rights develop a plan and so as I analyzed this amendment I don't think this amendment really rises to the occasion where it would entice The EPA, the federal EPA to step in and take over our plan. So I plan to support Representative Millis on this amendment. >> What purpose does the gentleman from Cabarrus Representative Pitman arise. >> To speak on the amendment. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. >> Thank you Mr speaker I guess you all probably know by now that I tend to stand on principles I believe in. One of the principles I believe in is free enterprise system, and to me government interference in financing of businesses is a violation of the free enterprise system.

If given the opportunity to vote I would vote no on giving thing like this at the first place. I'm certainly not going to vote to extend something and pardon me if I get off set a little bit. But since representative Ray Brown is not gonna be here next year we'll bring a little something a little bit. If we had a law that allowed people to beat their dogs and we put a sunset on it I don't think she'd vote to extend that sunset. Just because we're doing something we shouldn't have been doing in the first place, we gave you an extension doesn't mean we should give another extension. So I'll ask you to vote for this amendment. >> What purpose does the gentleman from Nash representative Collins rise? >> To debate the amendment. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. >> I agree 100% with what representative Szoka said that businesses like certainty and that we shouldn't change the rules in the middle of the game. So let me remind you that this amendment is passed keeps the rules the way they are, the rule is passed without the amendment changes the rules. So if you don't want the rules to be changed you must vote yes on this amendment. Now this amendment we know is being done for one company a company which has already received or is in the process of receiving over 8 million dollars and federal state and local tax benefits. If this amendment does not pass they're gonna receive another approximately 50 million dollars in state tax credits. In addition to the federal tax credits which they will get, which I don't even know how much that is but on just the money we know about the 65 jobs that they're saying that we'll create are gonna cost the tax payers 900,000 dollars per job. Not like business certainty I also like tax payer certainty. We've told our tax payers we were gonna sunset this credits that are targeted and only benefit a few at the expense of the rest of the tax payers in the study. We told them we were gonna sunset it in 2013, then we said oh no we really didn't mean that we're gonna sunset them in 2017. Now we're saying oh no we didn't really mean that either. But take our word for it we will sunset this thing in 2020. Now we also know that we're doing it to benefit one company. So now not only are we changing the rules on the tax payers we're practicing [INAUDIBLE] capitalism. Folks this is a great amendment, this provision without this amendment is terrible. Now is I live in a farm district and some of my best supporters are farmers, and I can almost never vote for a farm bill because of some other piece of junk that's crumbed in the farm bill that has nothing to do with farming. And this is the [INAUDIBLE] this year. So I beg of you, I you have a conscience with our tax payers vote yes on this amendment. So I'd love to be able to vote yes on this bill, I really would. But I think it's unconscionable for us to continue to change the rules on our tax payers over and over and over again. I hope you vote green on this amendment. >> For what purpose does gentleman from Pender Representative Millis rise? >> To debate the amendment the last time. >> The gentleman is recognized to debate the amendment the second time. >> Ladies and gentlemen I didn't plan on saying anything for a second time but I wanna kind of just spell a little bit of the fog that's been kinda put here on the house floor today. There's a lot of issues is that our thin grade lines for us as legislatures. One of the issues that are very difficult to see the difference between the black and white contrast. This amendment here, this topic we're discussing is very clear. I believe as well as business certainty that whenever business is actually align themselves off the backs of the taxpayers and ratepayers based on a statute as the sunset, this is what has evolved. Why are we gonna continue to ride the backs of our taxpayers and ratepayers to subsidize specific companies for something that actually does not lead to net job growth. Now listen to that phrase. A lot of politicians will tell you about job growth. We [INAUDIBLE]. Vote for jobs this is $200 million, but it does not lead to net job growth and the reason being is because we're giving $50 million of tax payers money that could be spent elsewhere.Whenever I face my constituents they said, why didn't you fund this, why was this tied? What's going on with highway patrol, why is the salary slow? And we're giving $50 million to one company in order to subsidize a more expensive unreliable form of energy this is very clear ladies and gentlemen don't be deceived by the rhetoric. This is black and white, vote green out of respect of our taxpayers in our state we have to stop doing this type of action, and I came up here to stop doing this very thing. Vote net jobs vote green. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Chiwan representative Steinburg will rise. >> Thank you Mr Speaker to speak to the amendment. >> The gentleman has the vote to debate the amendment.

>> Ladies and gentlemen of course being from legislature like many of you from rural North Carolina an opportunity like this doesn't come along very often. And we're talking about approximately 60 jobs being created in an area paying about $4800 a year, in an area where the average wage is somewhere around $31, 000. Now something else that hasn't been talked about in this debate on this amendment, is that there have been already millions of dollars spent by the state. And local government, and federal government as well on infrastructure improvements to this area. And so this project is an extended that investment on the part of those folks will all be for not. And again these rural opportunities just don't come along that often and I can, share this with you as well, that when we talk about tax credits, nobody likes tax credits. But remember tax credits don't happen unless jobs are created. So no jobs created, no tax credits. It's called investment in rural North Carolina. This are particular circumstances that unfortunately due to the death of the owner in the middle of the process here, we're delayed and really caused havoc. But I would encourage you to please think about this, pray about this. Think about the needs of those folks in rural North Carolina and defeat this amendment, thank you. >> Mr speaker. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Duplin Representative Dickson arise. >> For a motion. >> Would the gentleman withhold his motion just a moment. For what purpose does the gentleman from Craven Representative Speciale rise? >> Speak on the amendment. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. >> This guys are killing me. I'm looking up here and I'm seeing tax payers and I'm thinking if I was a tax payer do you know what I would be thinking right now? >> No respect. [INAUDIBLE] respect. >> That's what i'd be thinking. They got 8 million. $8,000,000 or $10,000,000 already. We're talking about another $50,000,000 for 60 jobs. 60 jobs that comes down to about $1,000,000 per job are you kidding me? $1,000,000 per job. We're gonna make an exception. We're told to reach into our hearts and feel bad for company that's not going to get hit with $50,000,000 of tax payer money because they can't meet the buy date equity July or January end date and we should extend it for them so we continue to pile this tax payer money on them. I don't understand why we pay a million dollars for a job to begin with but I think its a not a good use of tax payers money. I think we should stick with the original agreement and I ask you to support this amendment. [BLANK_AUDIO] the question before the house is the passage of amendment A1 sent forth by Representative Millers those in favor vote aye opposed will vote no five seconds be allowed for the voting the clerk will record the vote. [BLANK_AUDIO] Clerk will lock the machine, record the vote. 33 having voted in the affirmative and 79 in the negative, the amendment fails. The gentleman from Catawba Representative Adams recognized to send forth an amendment, the clerk will read. >> Representative Adam moves to amend the bill on page 9 line 6 through page 10 line 11 by deleting those lines. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. >> Thank you Mr. Speaker, I'm gonna be really brief about this. The portion of the bill that we are talking about Service Industry Promotion Act. Last fall I spoke extensively about form serving or deal forming. It is a violation of the public trust doctrine and I'm just gonna tell you the folks who opposed used it then. This affects deer hunters across the state. The people that I listed last fall that opposed this practice is the North Carolina Wildlife Federation, North Carolina Bowhunters

Association, Boone and Crockett association which dates back to 1887 The Corresponding association Pope and Young which is an archers association. Safari club international, quality gear management association, North Carolina Haness for the hungry, Rocky Mount and Milk Foundation, North Carolina Turkey Federation, The National Wildlife Federation, The Association of all fish and wildlife agencies and The Nation State wildlife association. I don't think we should do anything or allow anything that promotes selvage farming. Thank you. >> What purpose does the gentleman from Dukelan representative Dickson rise? Members I would ask you to vote red on this amendment. >> For what purpose does the gentlemen from Parson representative [INAUDIBLE] rise >> [CROSSTALK] >> To debate the amendment, we had a nice long debate about deer farming in general last year and people in my district take their deer hunting seriously and they're opposed to dear farming. It's seemed any way but I don't think we should be promoting any more than necessary, thank you. >> What purpose does the gentleman from Lake representative Pitilton rise? >> To To speak on the amendment. >> The gentleman is recognized to debate the amendment. >> I support this amendment it's hunting all to be out in the wild stocking animals where there's a challenge [INAUDIBLE] shoot them inside a fence so I'm in favor of this amendment. >> What purpose does the gentleman from Cumberland representative Szoka rise? >> To debate the amendment. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. >> Ladies and gentlemen I respect representative Adam and his position on this however this section of the bill really doesn't have anything to do with that at all, it's about putting a tax feed it was changed in deer feed, and this tax was or this assessment is only applicable to soviet farmers. So if you like to hunt deer you don't have to pay this it only applies to soviet farmers the larger issue as to whether deer farms or soviet farms should exist. Now that's not really the issue here at stake. The bill was amended yesterday to protect hunters across the State from having to pay an extra assessment. It's only on soviet farmers so I would ask you to vote red on this amendment. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Duplin, Representative Dixon rise? >> To speak on the amendment a second time. The gentleman is recognized to debate the amendment a second time. >> Thank you Mr. Speaker. Members of the House it appears to me that we are in the process of re-debating an issue from the last session. This was discussed yesterday and concessions were made to make this a refundable assessment. It is a refundable assessment. The assessment is applicable only to those people who because of Legislation in the last session were able to secure property rights and the right to do certain things. Relative to the production of soviet/g Deer. The concession was made yesterday in committee to exempt the folks that Representative Adams is concerned about. The other people who are legally engaged in free enterprise are in agreement to have this refundable assessment placed on them. Please vote red. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Cabarrus, Representative Pittman rise? >> To speak on the amendment. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. >> Mr. Speaker, looking at the section that we're attempting to amend here and you know it starts out talking about a voluntary assessment which I know you're talking about the association voting to do this voluntarily. But then on page 10 line 1 sub-section b. The association may bring an action to collect unpaid assessments against any feed manufacturer or distributor who fails to pay the

assessment. I don't know, I think I might be more in favor of the section if it were a little more voluntary than that. I don't like the idea of some association telling everybody in it you have to pay this, and if you don't we're gonna come after you. So I know principal majority rule but I just don't like putting people who might not agree with this in that kinda position. So I'm gonna support the amendment. Thank you. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Catawba, Representative Adams rise? >> To debate the amendment second time. The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment a second time. >> Well it looks like I'm gonna have to elaborate a little bit. The association that's mentioned in this section the North Carolina Deer & Elk Farmers Association has a web page. You may look that up. On the web page you'll find that there 14 members. Yesterday in committee was revealed that there may be as may as 34 members of this association. Yesterday in committee we found that there has been a modification that was going to tax all of the, not deer [INAUDIBLE], but all of the materials that deer hunters use to create food plots/g. All of that materials could be taxed And it was gonna go to this organisation of 14 to 35 members and it would amount to $69,000. That's a great business if you can make it work for you. Now on the other side of that there is all the hunting organisations and all the animal organisations that I mentioned earlier, but I want you to think about this, there are literally hundreds of thousands of people that are engaged in the sport hunting that oppose this and oppose this strongly. What they wanted to do prior to the concession that was made was tax them for the benefit of this association that they [CROSSTALK]. >> Mr. Speaker. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Duplin Representative Dixon rise? >> Is Representative Adams debating this particular amendment on what used to be or could he be asked to confine his remarks to what is now. >> The gentleman be encouraged to keep your remarks relevant to the amendment at hand the gentleman has the floor to continue the debate. >> My remarks are about a farm soviet industry promotion act. The farm soviet are deer farmers, soviet are white tale deer, reindeer and elk. And this people are taking wildlife and they are making then into livestock for business purposes. And they want their organisation to benefit from the activities of all hunters. We amended that yesterday. Folks, these are your constituents, these are your constituents hundreds of thousands of them cross North Carolina that oppose this practice. What my amendment does is it removes this section and it prevents this industry from promoting itself and I appreciate your vote in favor of the amendment thank you. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Transylvania Representative Whitmire arise? >> Speak on the amendment. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. >> I actually rise on opposition to the amendment here's why, the assessment which after, as Representative Dixon alluded to what is now is a only paid by those who are in it commercially, not people like me who are hunting and such as that. So what direct and indirect benefits of the purpose of this money is, if it's to go into research for things that soviets could have that are not good for soviets deer, elk etc. That helps the industry that we allowed to come into play last year, but it also helps the sports hunters because anything that promotes the health overall of the soviets helps us all. So I hope you will vote down the amendment, thank you. >> The question before the house is the passage of amendment 82 send forth by Representative Adams. Those in favor will vote aye, those opposed will vote no. The Clerk will open the vote. >> [BLANK_AUDIO] >> Finally members Wish to record Representative Arp, Representative Setzler, Representative Daltrey. The Clerk will lock the machine and record the vote. 47 having voted in the affirmative, 63 in the negative, the amendment is not adopted. We are now back on the Bill. For what purpose does the gentleman from Cumberland, Representative

Lucas rise? To speak on the Bill. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the Bill. >> Thank you Mr. Speaker. Ladies and gentlemen as I've listened I think that there's been some concern about the cutting/g the Feral Swine with the use of aircraft please rest assure that that wouldn't be for the purpose of hunting. Well it is hunting in a sense but it's not for sport hunting, sports hunters would not be allowed to utilize this methodology for taking game. This is strictly For certified wildlife personnel to call animals at a deprivation crops and for disease purposes, sometimes you have to call wild animals or they will destroy human The ends investment for farmers sometimes I know decree having their crops wasted by wild animal particularly if they're were hogs because they have the tendency to rule out and they will root out trees, they will root out shrubs, they will really destroy Sometimes whole fields we have to use a mechanism to reduce them when they become nuisances and this is what this section,section three is intending to do so I hope that you will not only Not allow that to call your green vote. >> for what purpose does the gentleman from Johnston Representative Langdon rise? >> Debate the bill. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. >> Folks we've had in committee two of them On this bill very well and has been greatly betted and i think which is the process we all did pass. I hope that as you weigh all the things in this bill that you would see it the way I do and that you would vote for the bill. Thank you. >> [COUGH] For what purpose does the gentleman from Iredale representative Filly rise? >> To ask the bill sponsor a question. >> Does the gentleman from [INAUDIBLE] yield to the gentleman from Iredale? >> Yes sir. >> He yields. >> Representative Dickson in section one it talks about textile bedding products Could be held up at the port if they were mislabelled. Having been in this business for many years one of the requirements is to make sure that the country of origin is correct. Often times That does not appear on a label as it should be often times there's often not an RN number on the product. Are we talking about embargoing an entire shipment of goods for something like that or are you talking Talking more if it's mislabeled as to fiber content or not having proper fire prevention information on the label? [BLANK_AUDIO] Members while the gentleman is conferring the chair would like to extend the courtesies of the gallery on motion of Representative Martin of Wilson and Representative Murphy of Pitt County to Dr. Timothy Reeder and the leaders in innovative care group from the Brody School of Medicine, East Carolina University.

Representative [UNKNOWN] This whatever it is, is under the authority DEQ. >> [INAUDIBLE] >> This was brought over from DEQ, it was existing there and we just wanted to make sure that it continues to exist the way it is. The two specific parts of your question Representative Folly would you not know the answer to that. >> Thank you. >> For what purpose Representative Jordan arise. >> Inquiry the bill sponsor. >> The CEO >> Yes sir.

>> He yields Thank you Representative Dickson, I appreciate it. Section three about the cutting of Feral Swine has come up again. I just want to confirm that it is in fact the Wildlife Commission Resource officers that are flying and not the pigs. >> [LAUGH] >> You are absolutely correct and very rarely are any of them seen at Appalachian State University. >> For what purpose does Representative Hager rise? >> To just inquire of the bill sponsor. >> Does he yield? >> Yes sir. >> He yields. >> Thank you Representative Dickson, I apologize for not asking these questions yesterday, I got so my great amendment I forgot to. So on section 11, page 10, line 32, it talks about doing repairs without a permit. And it talks about electrical devices in there that you can install electrical devices without a permit do we know exactly what that is, what's the detail for electrical devices? [BLANK_AUDIO] >> Representative Hager Figure it's mainly appliances types stuff and it's just a move over it's what currently exists in statutes and it's moved over to here. >> Follow up on this? >> Does he yield? >> Yes sir. >> He yields. >> Thank you representative Dickson, I just wanna make sure that we're not saying that you can do major electrical moves Is like a fuse bulb panel boxes, your breaker boxes and major issues like that without a permit. >> Absolutely not. >> Thank you and another, does he yield >> Yes sir. >> Yield. Section five talks about required training for appointing an elective solar water district supervisor. could you just kind of Found no matter [INAUDIBLE] training would be. >> There has been a concern there Representative Hager that volunteer people who seek appointment to this boards and have some degree of influence that their competence, their training Be up to par with those people who are actually doing it as a job in a profession. >> Representative Bumgardner for what purpose do you rise? >> To speak on this bill. >> You're recognized. >> Thank you Mr.Speaker as with a lot of things in here this bill has a lot of diverse parts. And some of them are totally unrelated to others but overall what I have to do is weigh the balance of a bill that has parts like this and find if there's more positive than negative. And then make a decision whether I'm gonna support it or not, and reading through this bill I went on any committees that heard it so today is really the first time I've read it. reading through the bill there's a lot of good regulatory parts in this bill. There some barnacles on the bottom of this ship that are really slow slowing it down staff that I don't like don't wanna vote for, but I voted on the amendment so overall I like this bill and I'm gonna vote green on it so I urge you to also. >> What purpose is representative Harrison rise? >> Question to bill sponsor please. >> Does representative Dixon yield? >> I do. >> He yields. >> Thank you Mr.Speaker and representative Dixon I'm just trying to understand the exception for horticultural uses from the sedimentation pollution, control act in section 14. Recognizing that sedimentation pollution is one of our biggest war/g quality problems in our state I'm just trying to understand cuz it looks like it's not just limited to horticultural, but it looks like it's all crop production and livestock activity will be exempt from sedimentation, pollution control life do you mind clarifying that please. >> Thank you, representative Harrison, Mr.Speaker if you could be kind enough to ask representative Harrison if she would direct that question to representative McGrady. >> Representative Harrison would you direct that to representative McGrady? >> Sure, thank you Mr.Speaker. >> She will he yields. >> I yield. We worked on that provision in committee the provision probably was actually as the women's stated it. It was intended to be broad in terms of providing an exception from that act broadly to farming and over the years apparently what happened is that in an effort to clarify the broad nature of the

exemption that was provided. We began creating a list of all the things that were provided. And then if you weren't on the list got nervous that since they were on the list gee that they probably aren't included in the list anymore. At this point it's really hard to get back to where we started, but we made an effort to get there with the hope that the understanding is whether it's the good policy or not you and I may actually agree that we were trying to get back to what the current law is. And I think we've done that with the language that the Bill sponsor allowed me to include there. >> Thank you. >>>For what purpose to Representative Pittman arise. >> Mr speaker. >> For what purpose does Representative Dixon arise. >> For an additional clarification for Representative Harrison. >> You're recognized for that purpose. >> Representative Harrison what's in their now is the existing law? >> For what purpose Representative Pittman arise. >> Inquire the chair. State your inquiry. >> Would it be in order at this time or is it too late to ask to vote on sections 10 and 11 separately for the rest of the bill? >> You can make a motion to that effect but hold one second [BLANK_AUDIO] >> Representative Pittman the easy way to do that is if you draw an amendment to delete them and maybe save that for third reading. So you may object the third reading in order to do that then? >> It's a roll call anyway, so it will be on the calendar tomorrow.>> Okay well I'll just wait for tomorrow then thank you. >> For what purpose does Representative Adams rise? >> Inquire the bill sponsor and debate the bill You're recognized for the inquiry if he yields. >> I do. >> He yields. >> Under the section regarding the aerial management of Feral Swine it says the employees of the Wildlife Resources Commission and employees of Federal agencies, is there any requirement for special Training or equipment for these people? >> [BLANK_AUDIO] >> I assume that there is for them to become Qualified to function in those positions. I would assume that there is some regulations for them to receive that status of employee. >>Follow up. >> Does he yield? >> Yes sir. >> He yields. >> It says also that this would be with written Written permission of the land owner, in the event that there was an accidental discharge that went off the land owners property and caused injury or damage to adjacent property. Who would be responsible? Who would be held responsible for that? >> I would assume that those things Things the liability clauses and everything in there, representative Adams would be something that is in place. I think the key there is that an individual property owner who would think they needed that service Service and it was offered to them I think that would be covered in the agreement. I've only seen one of those, and I do know liability was addressed but I cannot remember what it was, but the property owner would not be liable In the one that I saw. >> Debate the bill. >> You're recognized to debate the bill Representative Adams. >> I think many of you know that I've been a lifelong shooter. We're taught early on that there are two kinds of shooters. The kinds that have never had an accidental discharge and those that will. You will eventually have one. And if you have an accidental discharge you know you're aiming the

farm in a safe direction which we are also taught to do, there's usually no problem. That happens and no ones hurt, but having an accidental discharge standing on your feet is one thing and having an accidental discharge from the air is a whole different matter. And I'm a little uncomfortable with this, I really am, and I just wanted to air that out. I guess I will vote for the bill, but I hope there's plenty of backup precautions for this. Thank you. Representative Dickson you're recognized to debate the bill for the second time. >> Thank you Mr. Speaker, members of the house. I'm gonna be as candid as I can in this very few closing remarks that I will make about the bill. There's been several instances to what questions were asked That I did not know the answer to and that's the reason I solicited the assistance of staff. The reason for that is because this is not my bill. I have been asked to participate very late In the process and I enthusiastically accepted. The opportunity to walk this bill through the floor of this House. Please rest assured Representative Collins brought up A valid point about occasionally not being able to vote on a bill because of other things in it. I could not agree more than with that statement and other people had mentioned that also. It has been my Encouragement to other folks that we be very careful and trying to align the provisions of various bills and a manner that is consistent with With the overall purpose of the bill. This is referred to as the format. In the future, I will be more intentionally involved in trying to make sure Before I'm responsible for walking something through the floor of this house that we adhere more closely to that which is compatible to the individual desires of the members of our Caucus, having said that, on balance I'm going to vote yes on this bill and I would ask you to do the same.

It's a conference report. Does any member object to that bill being added to today's calendar. We won't be back till 5 so say members will have about six hours to review that conference. Is there objection to that? >> I apologize, which bill is this? >> House Bill 561, a bill entitled An Act to Modify the Authority of school systems with regards to legal proceeding and investigations. It was a conference report. The conferees from the House were Blackwell, Arp, Brody, Whitmire, Cotham, Conrad, Bishop and Hunter. Anybody have any objection that being added to today's calendar? Hearing none, the clerk is directed to add to today's calendar. We're about to go into recess. Do we have any further notices or announcements? For what says the lady from Mecklenburg, Representative Cotham rise? >> Thank you Mr. Speaker for inquiry of the chair. >> The Lady's recognized for an inquiry of the chair. >> Thank you Mr. Chair for those of us who want to keep up the tradition, do we need our purple suits this week or next week. >> Bring one for each, I don't know. >> It's not a good answer Mr. Speaker. >> [LAUGH] >> I will agree with the lady, it's not a great answer. And going to the question, at this point we are moving at the pace to attempt to adjourn Saturday. It may or may not happen. There are still a number of things out there, I'll let folks know the Coal Ash Bill for example will be going through committee, I assume probably some time today, but the Chair does but intend to add that to today's calendar so that would be an issue for tomorrow. Of course we also have second reading on the budget tomorrow, a third reading the following day on the budget. So those are obviously two very weighty issue there, there may be some other bills that come to the floor. I would encourage members to keep up and pay attention to the committees and the bills being heard as discussed as it's customary at the end of session. We will take bills that are heard in the committee and often hear them on the same day on the floor so members are encouraged to be diligent in keeping up with the committee notices and the bills that are moving, as we proceed through. At least this is what I can say will be the final days of the session. >> Mr Speaker. >> For what purpose does the lady from Orange Representative Insko arise?. >> For inquiry of the Chair. >> The lady is recognized for an inquire. >> So as I understand that we will be in session for tonight, this evening, we will be in session tomorrow? we will be in session on Saturday, and we may or we may not adjourn on Saturday. >> If it appears that we can adjourn on Saturday, then we will be in session, and if it appears it's gonna roll on to next week we'll try to end the week as early as possible. >> And further inquiry - >> The lady is recognized for further inquiry. >> Do you know at what point you'll make that decision? That decision?. >> We should have an idea of that tomorrow. [BLANK_AUDIO] >> Thank you. >> It's just a matter of watching the flow of legislation to make sure things are - >> Any chance that you could make it tonight? >> I'm sorry. >> Is there any chance that you could make the decision tonight? >> If I can I will. [BLANK_AUDIO] >> Any further notices or announcements? if not the Chair is gonna direct that the house set in recess subject to eradication of the bills, messages from the senate, committee reports, conferences reports, re-referral of bills and resolutions, appointment of conferees and committee appointment and recess until 5 pm this afternoon.
