If there is an interest in perhaps moving that schedule up we will have that conversation tomorrow, but at this point it does appear we will have to have a Thursday and Friday session.

I don't believe it's this week but I would be pleasantly surprised if it worked out or we could adjourn at the end of this week.

I can say this, if we don't move the vote upto Wednesday and Thursday you are guaranteed of a Friday session or Thursday and Friday, if we do move the vote on the budget up there's there's a possibility we would not have to be here Friday, it just depends upon where we go as far as actual adjournment this week and what other bills are deemed to be time sensitive to be resolved this week, so if I knew more I would advice the member. >> Last question Mr. speaker. >> You're recognized. >> So, I I guess I'm hearing plainly that we may have definite if we are not successful for Wednesday and Thursday, we will have a Friday session. >> Correct under our rules we would have to have second reading on Thursday and third reading on Friday of the budget bill. >> The last question please. >> The gentleman is recognized for his additional last Last question. >> [LAUGH] >> But we could make some adjustments here. >> We could, the rules do permit that.

Do you wanna send a no claim in it? >> Further discussion, further debate. For what purpose does the gentleman from Durham, Representative Luebke rise? >> Speaking on the bill. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the To debate the bill the house will come to order. [SOUND]. >> Mr speaker members to debate the bill briefly, this bill in my judgement as I said before we discussed it on Thursday has a problem because it is a forced de-annexation of property from the town of Marvin the town does not want development in a part of the town, they have not agreed to allow the development to go on their inside their city limits because they will not zone it for development. The county of union apparently according to members does not care one way or the other whether this development goes forward, the town of Marvin doesn't want it, so what has happened in this bill is that when I was telling what the town wishes the six acres are the this isn't the policy we ought to be doing, we're not happy here in Rowley, we're telling the town of Marvin what it can and cannot do, so we're joined here, the beneficiary is a developer, one developer who will get six acres from the town of Marvin going to union county they will therefore be the development. It undermines the integrity of the time Marvin we should not be doing this now or in any other time and I and maybe a few others of us will vote no, thank you. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from union representative Horne rise. >> To debate the bill. >> The gentleman has the floor to present the bill. >> Thank you Mr. speaker, representative representative Luckie was absolutely correct, the town of Marvin would like to control the development within their town and I actually agree with that but here's the problem, one person owns three parcels, contiguous parcels along the line, very small parcel takers of which two acres is usable, splits the property, so as much as the town of Mavin doesn't want development what they have are two portions that are not in the town, they're separated by this small portion that is in the town. What's gonna happen is we're they're gonna get development whether they want it or not but they won't be on that two acres spot in the middle, and the type of development they're gonna get is not the type of development that the essence of the town of Marvin wants, so street malls and used used stores and more fast food places are not in keeping with the character of the town of Marvin in that region, in order to have the type of development that is in character with the region the property needs to be complete, it just doesn't make practical sense so I ask you I ask you to vote for the bill based on practical sense, what a concept, thank you Mr speaker. >> The question before the house is the passage of Senate bill 774 on its third reading, those in favor will vote aye, those opposed will vote No, the clerk will open the vote.

[APPLAUSE] >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Guilford, Representative Representative Faircloth, rise? >> To debate the bill. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill and the House will come to order. >> [SOUND] >> Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I notice that there are three amendments, and it's probably more appropriate for you to go ahead and handle those amendments and then I'll debate after that if it's okay. [BLANK-AUDIO] The lady from from Buncombe, Representative Fisher is recognized to send forth an amendment, the clerk will read. >> Representative Fisher, moves to amend the bill on page 2, line 14 through page 3, line 47, by rewriting those lines to read. >> The lady has the floor to debate the amendment. >> Thank you Mr. Speaker. ladies and gentlemen at the house, this amendment as you see it on your dashboard has to do with disclosure and what it would allow is for Person who is depicted in a body cam recording to request that they be made privy to the recording, if they are able to state the date on which On which the recording happened and the time. And give pertinent relative information as to when the recording took place. For that first portion about disclosure. They are not required to consider a request unless that approximate time and place that the incident Can be stated by the person requesting. As far as the release of the recordings section D on the first page has to do with a compelling public interest and if it is determined that a Recording made by a body camera shows something like serious bodily injury or death that those results can be made public A law enforcement agency is not required to consider a request of release of that portion of the recording unless again the person states the day and time of the recording and identifies the incident .The law enforcement Officer can overcome the presumption in favor of releasing recording by meeting several different requirements that you'll see listed on the second page of the amendment listed there in parenthesis starting with 1 And then going through seven and the reason just overall for this amendment and you'll see the rest of the amendment, has to do with just the placement of this additional language in the bill, to account for the changes in paragraph and numbering that had to Happen to accommodate this amendment.

And the reason for the amendment is that there are instances where people should have a right to know if they're part of a recording that was taken by the police body cam And it's not enough that you just have the police recording and it goes to the police department and there is no way for a victim or a perpetrator to find out how How they were recorded on that recording, they should be able to find out if they are personally on it, and if they can tell when that incident happened, and the date and the time and the place, also because we know that there have been Instances where things have happened, in particular instances where people are injured, and some instances that have resulted in death. We want the public to know and be aware of what has happened that resulted in these serious Injuries or death. The main idea is that we want people to have as much information as they can have, both on the law enforcement side and on the public side, and for that reason I would hope that you would support this amendment, thank you very much. Members there are three lights on. What the chair would ask is that if members would deactivate their lights unless they wish to debate an amendment, are there any other members wishing to debate the amendment? For what purpose does the gentleman from Guilford Representative Fair Cloth rise To debate the amendment. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. >> Thank you Mr speaker, if you recall our conversation the other night about or the other day when we were discussing this particular bill. The design of this bill is aimed exactly at what the sponsor of this amendment Says she's seeking and that's a way for people who are on the images of these recordings to be able to see them, we provided that. This is a very balanced bill the amendment simply changes sequences around, doesn't really accomplish anything except it's a little tougher in order to put it in, I think we trust law enforcement, that's a good deal the way it is and I ask you to vote against the amendment. >> Further discussion further debate on the amendment, if not the question for the house is the adoption of amendment 85 sent forth by representative represent official, those in favor will vote aye, those oppose will vote no, the clerk will open the vote. [BLANK-AUDIO] the clerk will lock the machine and record the vote. 43 having voted in the affirmative, 71 in the negative, the amendment is not adopted. The gentleman from [INAUDIBLE] representative Queen is recognized to send forth the amendment and the clerk will read. >> Representative Queen moves to amend the bill the bill on page one line three by deleting not. >> here's the gentleman from Lake and he wishes to change his right on the amendment from yes to no. >> I do Mr. speaker. >> Gentleman [INAUDIBLE] is voting no on the previous amendment. The gentleman from [INAUDIBLE] has the floor to debate the amendment. >> Thank you, I offer an amendment it's just three lines, it just does one thing, it clarifies that in this legislation which is to regulate and deal with a special type of record or body cam which is very important to our public trust in our law enforcement, it's a public record of a public service that's key For a key service that our citizens want to have transparency and accountability in, it is good for law enforcement and its good for community trust, what it does is it says that this records are public records Clarifies that they indeed are not personnel records, and that all other provisions of this section will be

how they are regulated, we do not need to take up this new technology this new opportunity to add Clarity and public trust and claim that its not a public record, we are creating a whole new class. I agree with the bill sponsors that it's a sensitive public record and it needs to be appropriately regulated with a common sense regime but I do not think it should be classified as something other than what it is, so I ask you to consider voting to clarify that portion of the bill, otherwise it works just as the bill sponsors have Have planned thank you. >> Does the gentleman from Vance wish to debate the amendment or is just for some additional purpose. >> Amendment. >> The gentleman is recognized to debate the amendment. I rise in support of the amendment, this is simply bringing this body cameras in line consistently with how we characterize every Every other video tape that is maintained by public officials in course of their official public duty and I support the amendment. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Guilford Representative Fair Cloth arise. >> To debate the amendment. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. >> I ask that you vote against this Amendment we have structured carefully the use of public records and the way that the information flows through this process this would do nothing more than we can feel that we put together as good as it is I ask you to vote against the amendment. >> Further discussion for the debate if not the question for the house is the adoption of amendment 86 sent forth by representative Queen, those in favor will vote aye, those oppose will vote no, the clerk will open the vote. [BLANK-AUDIO] [BLANK-AUDIO] clerk will lock the machine and record the vote. 40 having voted in the affirmative and 74 in the negative, the amendment is not adopted. The gentleman from Cumberland representative Richardson is recognized to send forth an amendment, the clerk will read. >> Representative Richardson moves to amend the bill on page three, lines 26 by rewriting their line to read. >> The gentleman from [INAUDIBLE] is recognized to debate the amendment. >> Mr. speakers, members, I could tell by the way the first two members have gone all the way, this amendment will probably go, but I really want you to think about this. I do a lot of work in In this area I have defended the police chief, I have defended police officers, I have defended people who have claimed excessive use of force. It is so important for the decision maker this is a wonderful bill, the two co-sponsors of this bill work very, very hard, done a great job and I And I compliment them again fro what they are doing this is so important this is probably one of the most important bills we will vote on this session and I commend them for getting the interest of all the people together in putting this bill out here, it is crucial however that we give some guidance to the To the decision maker both the person and the police department who is looking to release his record and the judge as to what a compelling interest is, and what this amendment simply does it says that it is such an important aspect of society now, it is such an important thing The light of day come upon us and look at, And that is, what goes on when a policewoman, confronts a citizen and that citizen claims he or she has been seriously injured or harmed in that altercation, or the officer has been harmed. And the public should have a right to look at the person that was involved in the action had the right to look at it, and the and the officer should have that released. To protect him or her. More times, 99.99% of the time, this openness is Going to help the good officers that we had defending our streets everyday. You can never go wrong being open.

And I think that this topic is so important, so necessary, that it needs to be defined as one of the compelling interests that tips the scale In favor of opening this up to be seen. Thank you. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Guilford, Representative Faircloth rise? >> To debate the amendment >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. >> Members of the House I will certainly agree that Most of these recordings that are gonna make their way to court or make their way to The District Attorney what have you, are of compelling interest. And we have provided in the bill a very smooth, a very workable way of everything from the initial viewing by the person who Who has the image, all the way through to a charge against an officer if that should occur. It's all taken care of tin the way bill is structured. I ask you to defeat the amendment. >> Further discussion, further debate. If not the question for the house is the passage of Amendment A7 sent forth by Rep. Richardson Those in favor will vote aye, those opposed will vote No, the clerk will open the vote. [BLANK_AUDIO].

[BLANK-AUDIO] for what purpose does the gentleman from Haywood representative Queen rise. >> To speak on the bill. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. >> Again, I don't think I'm making much head way but I do wanna make the point one last time on the third reading that we have come a long way with this bill from where we were prior to it, it's moved complete secrecy of this body cams hidden in the personal record definition, but we haven't gone the full way Which is exactly what the public wants us to do. Certainly we need to regulate it. But we need to regulate it in a way that is user friendly. Friendly to the public interest. Friendly to the public good in every respect. Including Including to the benefit and trust that our law enforcement agencies and departments deserve.

The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. >> Thank you Mr speaker and I want the long on this because I have my comments last week but I do wanna emphasize one thing One thing that we seem to forget, under the color of law and under the oath that this officers take, they discharged their duty, sometimes under dangerous circumstances and sometimes they make the right decision is to spur the moment maybe in the heat of the moment. And to be vindicated by this videotape is great for them. As Rep. Richardson said, in most instances you'll find that their professional training and their dedication to duty and their skill prevailed in that situation. But we cannot forget the other side of this coin and that is, as Rep. Faircloth said, several people who have interest in this bill are satisfied with the current state of it but the people who have to be the guardians of public information and public knowledge, are not fully destined in this bill and what does that mean? Again, these are perfect records of x conducted by public employees who are volunteerism in this [INAUDIBLE] but more critically who carried with them deadly force and under law are authorized to take the of their fellow citizens and that's why it's so important, we've given them an awesome responsibility but with it, it comes the scrutiny of the public for whom they are working so again I will just note we haven't gone as far as we need to go, on this particular issue where tail lights not head lights were not leading and we're not even keeping up with the public demand of us, so I hope as we go forward and changes are made it's clear this bill is gonna pass in its current form but is not enough, I'm sure you'll hear from interest groups also as you go forward so I hope that you keep that in mind as as you vote if your true answer is to serve the public. >> Further discussion, further debate, if not the question before the house is the passage of the house committee substitute for house bill 972 on its third reading, those in favor will vote aye, those oppose will vote no, the clerk will open open the vote.
