[SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Wade is recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. President. Mr. President, I’d like to send forth an amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Wade, you can send forward your amendment. The clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Wade moves to amend the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Wade is recognized to explain the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] This is actually just a clarifying and technical change that was put forth by DENR. The department asked us to make a few clarifying changes. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Is there any discussion or debate? Hearing none, the question before the, Senator Cooke, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I’m just curious, this, [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator, you want to ask Senator Wade a question? [SPEAKER CHANGES] If I may, sorry. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Wade, do you yield? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes sir, I yield. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Cooke, you can ask your question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you. Senator, this set of technical changes includes a effective date that is next year for part of this bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes sir, July 1 2014. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you very much. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Is there any further discussion or debate? Hearing none, [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Clark, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I ask the bill sponsor to yield for a question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Wade, do you yield for a question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes, I do. [SPEAKER CHANGES] During the discussion last week I was left with the impression it would be about a decade before we really face any significant problems in terms of landfill capacity. Is my understanding in that regard correct? [SPEAKER CHANGES] That’s what I’m looking at now. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President, we’re discussing the amendment right now, so [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator is your question about the bill or the amendment? The amendment is before us right now. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Okay if you can hold your question till we get back to the bill before us. Senator McKissick for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] To ask the bill sponsor a question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Wade, do you yield for a question? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes, I do. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Could you explain with a little bit more specificity exactly what this amendment would accomplish? I see there’s language here dealing with a five year type of limited permit that would deal with closure plans, things of that sort, financial assurance cost estimates, environmental monitoring plans, and other applicable plans for facilities. So if you could, since you’re most familiar with the amendment and how it relates to the overall bill, provide us with a little more specificity, if you could? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes sir. Senator McKissick, what this does is since it’s a 30 year permit now, depending on when your permit becomes due again, like right now there’s some with 5 years and there’s some that have had 10 years, if you’ve had 10 years, you’d be granted 20 years. But every 5 year period, you would be subject to a review. And that’s what you see’s pertaining to. That they will come out and do a limited review every 5 years even though you have a 30 year permit. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Follow up. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Wade, do you yield for a follow up question? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes, I do. [SPEAKER CHANGES] In the event they came out for one of these 5 year review intervals and determined that things were not compliant or there were things that needed to be done, how would they be addressed at that time? Would there be possibility of replication or sanctions or penalties or what in fact would occur when a review occurred if an operator was found to be in some respect non-compliant? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator McKissick, I think all of the above could be possible and DENR would be able to close the landfill if they felt necessary. If they’re not in compliance or anything like that, DENR would still be able to enforce whatever sanctions they need to enforce. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President, one additional follow up. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Wade, do you yield for a follow up? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes, I do. [SPEAKER CHANGES] How do those provisions and conditions for closure or for sanctions differ from what may exist under law today? [SPEAKER CHANGES] There’s, Senator McKissick, there aren’t any differences. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you.

For those of you who have asked questions, please turn your microphones off. I have multiple microphones on right now. Thank you. Is there any further discussion or debate? Hearing none, the question for the Senate is the passage of Amendment One, all in favor vote aye, opposing vote no. Five seconds will be allowed for the vote, the clerk will record the vote. Rabon, Brunswick. Rabon. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Rabon. Senator Rabon. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Oh, sorry Senator – wrong Rabon. I'm looking in the wrong place. Sorry, Senator. Rabon, aye. 36 having voted in the affirmative and nine in the negative, Amendment One is adopted, the bill as amended is back before the body. Senator Brown, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] To set forth an amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator, you can send forth your amendment. The clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brown moves to amend the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brown is recognized to explain the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr President. What the amendment does is pretty much what we did with the bill previously on windmills, is to make sure that the landfills wouldn't have a significant adverse impact on the mission, training or operations of any military installation or branch of the military. And it also specifies the time period in which they would have to come up with a reason to argue against the permit. Be glad to answer any questions. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Is there any discussion or debate? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Wade, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] To speak on the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Wade has the floor to speak on the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senators, this is a very good amendment, and I hope we would support it. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Is there any further discussion or debate? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Pate, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] To see if Senator Brown would yield to a question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brown, do you yield? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I do. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Senator Brown. Would this restriction also apply to birds that flock around landfills and that sort of thing that might endanger aircraft flying overhead? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Pate, this amendment would not, this pretty much deals with just the training of the military. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Is there any further discussion or debate? Senator Brock – Senator Pate, did you have another question? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Just a follow-up, sir. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brown, do you yield for a follow-up? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I will. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Would you clarify that? You say it just has to do with military training – I should think that jets flying overhead might be training. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I guess you could argue that if the landfill created a situation where birds would show up and make it an issue for training, I guess it could be. But you know that's – again, I guess you'd have to prove that that would be a fact, I would have to think. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator [Brock? Not on list], for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] To see if Senator Brown would yield for a quick question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brown, do you yield for a question? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I will. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Looking through the amendment, is it referring when it says “the Department,” the Department of Defense, or of DENR? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brock, which section are you looking at? On the bottom section it talks about DENR, but on the first part it talks about the military and then it talks about who from the military would be the point of contact to object to the permit or talk about concerns of the permit. Then it deals with how many days they have as well. I'm not sure. Just a quick follow-up. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brown, do you yield for follow-up? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I do. [SPEAKER CHANGES] So would DENR speak on behalf of the military? [SPEAKER CHANGES] No, there's a designated individual from the military that would speak on behalf of the military. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Okay, thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator McKissick, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] To ask the sponsor of the amendment a question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brown, do you yield? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I do. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brown, could you tell me how this particular revision, if it became operational, would differ from our standard operating procedures, practices and regulations today? I mean it looks like a good amendment, but how would it differ from what we are required to do today, either in terms of rules and regulations, or other provisions that might be applicable to either? It looks like it's applying to both existing landfills as well as applications for new landfills. [SPEAKER CHANGES] This is not a requirement today. This is a new requirement. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Okay, thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Is there any further discussion or debate? Hearing none, the question before the Senate is the passage of Amendment Two, all in favor vote aye, opposed will vote no, five seconds will be allowed for the voting. The clerk will record the vote. [RECORDING ENDS]

44 Having voted in the affirmative and one in the negative. Amendment two has adopted the bill as amended as back before the body. Is there any further discussion or debate? Senator Clark, what bugs your eyes? (SPEAKER CHANGES) Ask the bill of sponsor to yield to a question. (SPEAKER CHANGES) Senator Wade , do you? (SPEAKER CHANGES)I do (SPEAKER CHANGES) Now, as i stated earlier i was under the impression from last weeks debate that there was really no sense of urgency in terms of lack of landfill capactiy in that it would be atleast a decade, more than a decade for that matter before we would basically have a lack of landfill capacity in the state, is that correct? (SPEAKER CHANGES)No Senator that is not correct, if you landfills closing in the next 5 years, wouyld be bourke county, cleveland county, davison county, gaston county, halifax, robertson, haywood, orange, i think there is a long list and there is also another list that is closing in 10 years. and as you know senator it takes 5-10 years to get a landfill permited and built in north carolina, so i think we are somewhat in a rush if we are going to be prepared. (SPEAKER CHANGES) Follow up (SPEAKER CHANGES) Senator wade do you yield for follow up? (SPEAKER CHANGES) Yes I do (SPEAKER CHANGES) So by reducing the exclusionary zones would that solve the problem for robertson county (SPEAKER CHANGES)There may not need to be one in robertson county if ofcourse there is a landfill nmearby as we found out on the last debate last week, there are some counties and cities now shipping it to other areas (SPEAKER CHANGES)follow up (SPEAKER CHANGES)senator yields (SPEAKER CHANGES)So for the counties you have listed it seems to me that they could take their past other landfills within the state. Is that correct (SPEAKER CHANGES) No senator they may can or may not can and it depends on the franchise agreement with the local government. And that could stop you from bringing trash in from another municipality or another county depending on the agreement they reached, if you reach an agreement with one county or one municipality that you would take in trash for the next 40 years, then you lim it the amount of trash to 240,000 tons a year now you couldnt take it from somewhere else if you already worked out that transfer agreement (SPEAKER CHANGES)Thank you (SPEAKER CHANGES)Ok well for those counties that are running out of capacity (SPEAKER CHANGES)Senator do you have a question? (SPEAKER CHANGES)I would like to speak (SPEAKER CHANGES)Senator you have the floor to speak (SPEAKER CHANGES)Well for those counties that are running out of capacity hopefully they will be able to come to an agreement with someone, but i believe we have a sufficient capacity within the state in order to resolve the problem for now. That being said i would like to send forth an amendment. (SPEAKER CHANGES)Senator you can send forth your amendment. (SPEAKER CHANGES)Clerk will read (SPEAKER CHANGES)Senator Clark moves to amend the bill (SPEAKER CHANGES)Senator Clark is recognized to explain the amendment (SPEAKER CHANGES)Is it on the dashboard (SPEAKER CHANGES) It is on the dashboard, senator (SPEAKER CHANGES) OK, Essentially what this amendment does is 2 things, it restores iunitial boundries that were in the initial bills for the exclkusionary zones for their original state, and secondly it provides a littlwe bit more restrictive prohibition against installing landfills near military bases. In essence you cant install, put a landfill in within 5 miles of a military instalation, instalations are defined in the amendment. (SPEAKER CHANGES)I support the amendment (SPEAKER CHANGES)IS there any discussion or debate (SPEAKER CHANGES)Mr president (SPEAKER CHANGES) Senator wade, what verbs do you arise. (SPEAKER CHANGES) to speak on the amendment (SPEAKER CHANGES) Senator wasde has the floor to speak on the amendment (SPEAKER CHANGES)I think we have adressed in the original bill, all these particular issues and we have a good bill and i would urge you to vote against this amendment (SPEAKER CHANGES)Senator brown what verbs do you arise. (SPEAKER CHANGES)Speak on the amendment (SPEAKER CHANGES)Senator brown has the floor to speak on the amendment (SPEAKER CHANGES)I appreciate the amendment but again i think i hope i have addressed the issue for the military base, and at the end of the amendment it alsop puts in the mileage restrictions as far as being close to the national wildlife refuge, gameland, wildlife resources, lets see what else, state parks, those are the same restrictions that have pretty much limited any landfills from being contructed, so if you put those back in the bill you pretty much kill the bill, so i cant support the amendment (SPEAKER CHANGES) Is there any further discussion or debate? hearing none, question for the senate is the passage of amendment three, all in favor vote AYE, opposed vote no, 5 seconds will be allowed for the vote

Clerk will record the vote. Bryant, aye. Rabin, no. 13 having voted in the affirmative and 32 in the negative, amendment three fails. The bill as amended is back before the body. Is there any further discussion or debate? Senator Robinson for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] To ask the bill sponsor a question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Wade, do you yield? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes, I do. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Wade, you’re aware of the landfill issue recently in East Greensboro. How does this bill affect, how does the change in regulations affect that landfill? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Robinson, it shouldn’t affect White Street Landfill whatsoever unless it does somewhere down the line have some other landfills come into play and then of course, it might lower the cost for Greensboro to have to ship it out. It would be more competition, hopefully, if we do get another landfill sited and they may be able to lower their prices. Instead of paying $8 to $10 million a year in Greensboro, they might be able to get it a little lower to ship it out. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Follow-up, Mr. Chair. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Wade, do you yield for a follow-up? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I do. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Does changing the regulations and the rules give the opportunity, however, for the City Council to determine that that landfill might be opened and expanded? Is there leeway in this language? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Robinson, the City of Greensboro controls the White Street Landfill. So I guess at any time the City Council could vote to open it. But there’s nothing in this bill that will open the White Street Landfill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Speak on the bill, Mr. Chair. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Robinson has the floor to speak to the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you. Senate Bill 328 is an attack on the environment in which our children and citizens must live. You’ve heard about the White Street Landfill in East Greensboro. That landfill was built in a community that is almost 100 percent African Americans. Traditionally landfills have been built in low income and minority communities. That particular landfill had to garner support from all across the entire county to get the City Council to decide not to reopen. Persons in that area have bought houses yet have been diagnosed with cancers and brown-lung disease, et cetera. Senate Bill 328 raises the ugly concept of landfills that disproportionately affect minority, rural and poor people. NIMBY is a concept of build them but not in my backyard. While Senator Wade has said that the intent is not to reopen the landfill, rewriting the rules gives way to multiple probabilities that this could happen. Amending the transport rules for vehicles to be leak-resistant rather than leak-proof means that debris and garbage would be leaked onto streets where children play. It won’t matter that it does not adhere to the tires of vehicles because it will adhere to the hands and mouths of children. You might see it as an opportunity to bring business into North Carolina, especially for some whose families operate trucking companies. We in Guilford County and other counties see it as an assault on the health and well-being of communities that are rural and low-income, that are mostly minority. We as a Senate have no right to assign additional disparities to communities in our state. We should be for the rights to health and housing for all people. If you’re concerned about this you’ll vote against the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Is there any further discussion or debate? Hearing none, the question for the Senate is the passage of the Committee substitute number two to Senate Bill 328 as amended on its third reading. All in favor will vote, “Aye.” Opposed will vote, “No.” Five seconds will be allowed for the voting. The Clerk will record the vote. Apodaca, aye. 29 having voted in the affirmative and 16 in the negative, the Committee substitute number two to Senate Bill 328 as amended passes its third reading, the amendments will be engrossed and it will be sent to the House. We have four bills on the calendar for concurrence. Starting with Senate Bill 231. The Clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senate Bill 231, “Modify the Duties of the Advisory Council on Indian Education.” [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Davis is recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
