[SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. Speaker, members of the House, I would make a motion that we concur with the city's substitute for House Bill 418. The senate did make some changes for parole violator would allow Buncombe County to go forward. The county is asking for this authority to and they have delayed adopting their budget because of this. If our local governments could agree at some point time in the future they could come back to this body and request that other local governments be able to join. I ask you to support this Motion to Concur. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Fisher, please state your purpose To debate the motion Mr. Speaker Speaker changes The ?? is to debate the Motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. Speaker. Ladies and Gentlemen of the House I don't know if you recall but this bill was with us before it went over to the senate included the City of Asheville after two years they would be included in this parks and cultural authority. The bill came back from the senate and Representative Ramsey is asking us to concur with Asheville now not included in this authority at all. I have to say that I would have likely, more likely voted for the earlier version that created a joint authority and it's my hope that at some point the county will have a true joint authority and include Asheville and other towns within the county and what they might have to offer. But it seems as if we are adding another layer of government in the county to oversee entities that already oversees. Buncombe County is creating an authority for entities that Buncombe County already oversees. So without knowing the real purpose of this, I will have to vote against the Motion to Concur and I hope you would join with me on that. Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate on the Motion. If not, the question before the house is the Motion to Concur and the Senate Committee substitute for House Bill 418.

[SPEAKER CHANGES] The House resolution honoring the founders of Bethesda Presbyterian Church during the churches 200th anniversary the House resolves. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Boles, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I would like the resolution to be read in its entirety please. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Whereas Bethesda Presbyterian Church located in

[SPEAKER] ?? county, North Carolina, was instrumental in the development of the community and the only church to serve the community for the first 100 years of its existence, and whereas in 1756 the ?? of Philadelphia sent the reverend James Campbell, a Gaelic preacher, to serve the Highland Scots, who have settled in the area of the lower Cape Fear basin, beginning a tradition of establishing different preaching points throughout the region and whereas the first settlers gathered under Brush Harbors at the head of Rockfish Creek and a regular community of worshipers was established, and whereas in 1788 the first solid structure was built on property that had been dated to James Patterson by king George of England in 1766, and whereas in 1832 a second building was built adjacent to the Petie road, a major roadway for the areas commercial trade in the community now known as Blue's Crossing, and whereas in 1862 a third building was built on the same property with a gallery for slaves and a separate entrances for men and women, even in the mist of the hardships and strive of the Civil War, and whereas in 1907 a fourth building was built in the town proper, by now renamed Aberdeen, so that the worshipers could have access to electricity and to be in a location more centrally located to its parishoners, and whereas in 1923 the members decided to institute a tradition of an annual homecoming at the previous location in order to preserve the history and structure of the old church building, and whereas in 1972 a fifth building was built on US highway 1, allowing the church to continue serving the community in the best way possible, and whereas in 2013 Bethesda Presbyterian church has survived and served for 225 years and deserves recognition. Now, therefore, be it resolved by the House of Representatives: Section 1 - The House of Representatives honors the founders of Bethesda Presbyterian church for their dedication and contributions to the rich cultural heritage and support to the community. Section 2 - The House of Representatives applauds the congregation of Bethesda Presbyterian church for its continuous service to the community and contributions to the cultural and religious heritage of the state of North Carolina. Section 3 - The principle clerk shall try and submit a certified copy of this resolution to the reverend Jonathan Wallace, pastor of Bethesda Presbyterian church. Section 4 - This resolution is effective upon adoption. [SPEAKER CHANGE] Representative Boles is recognized to debate the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGE] Thank you Mr. Speaker. My Family moved to Aberdeen in September of 1970 and we started attending Bethesda Presbyterian church at that time. I became a member of Bethesda in April 7th, 1974, and I served as a deacon there, and all four of my children are baptyzed there at the church. The church is my home church and it was a very good church to grow up with a good supporting community. Bethesda has a real rich history in the area of More County, that became part of ?? Cumberland and surrounding counties. The old church stands at the cemetery, at Bethesda cemetery, where we also have Walter ?? Page which was buried there also. Bethesda is also the home church of one of our Speakers here in the House, in 1963 the very first Speaker in this particular building H Cliffton Blue was a member of Bethesda Presbyterian church and I can always remember attending church and seeing him and local politics was always an issue there. I commend the resolution and thank you for your support and your time. [SPEAKER CHANGE] Further discussion, further debate?

[CHANGE SPEAKER] Representative Lewis, please state your purpose. [CHANGE SPEAKER] To floor a motion. [CHANGE SPEAKER] The gentleman is recognized for a motion and to debate the motion.

[CHANGE SPEAKER] Representative McGrady, please state your purpose. [CHANGE SPEAKER] To make a motion. [CHANGE SPEAKER] The gentleman is recognized for a motion and to debate the motion. [CHANGE SPEAKER] I move that we do not concur in the Senate substitute and that conferees be appointed. By way of background, this is a bill that I believe passed unanimously in the House. It is really in the nature of a regulatory reform bill striking a required planning process within ??. To my knowledge, it's no conflict there. On the Senate side they added a provision related to one landfill in one county and the legislators in the House who represent that one county have a difference of opinion. And I think we can get this resolved Mister Speaker but we need to establish a conference committee. [CHANGE SPEAKER] Further discussion, further debate on the motion to not concur?

Representative Collins, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To briefly debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to debate the bill as amended. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I’m sorry, I’m trying to get to the document I need to get to. This bill does what it says. It makes several changes to the Nursing Home Administrator Act that had been requested. Primarily what it does is change some of the requirements for training for nursing home administrator. It also allows the board to raise some fees. Now some of these fee raises which haven’t been done I understand in ten years, since 2004, look pretty steep but I’m told by Senator Tucker, at least we were told in Finance Committee by Senator Tucker, these were maximums. Some of them say you can raise the fee from 100 to 200 and he said the expectation they were told was they would be raised immediately to 125. So these are maximums that are allowed. They’re not necessarily going to those amounts right now. Other than that, it also does some reciprocity requirement updates. It also allows for criminal background checks of people that are going to operate nursing homes, and make some other technical and miscellaneous changes. I ask you to support Senator Tucker’s bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate? If not, the question before the House is the passage of the House Committee Substitute to Senate Bill 488 as amended on its second reading. All opposed vote aye. All opposed, no. The clerk will open the vote.
