…House Bill 193, Expand use for Mecklenburg County Charlotte Local Taxes. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Rucho, is recognized to explain the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. President and members of the Senate. This is a local bill and let me assure you what it does is it requested by the City of Charlotte to allow them to have some flexibility on existing food and beverage tax revenues of 1%. And all it does is it provides – it gives them the flexibility to use that money for the use of the Bank of America Stadium property and for amateur sports. And I'll tell everybody in the Senate that there is no new taxes, no new revenues, no impact at all on the state revenue stream and I urge you to support this bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Is there any further discussion or debate? Senator Graham, for what purpose you arise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Speak on the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Graham, you have the floor to speak on the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I too would like to encourage the members of the Senate to vote for this local legislation. It’s a bipartisan effort. They came from the House where both parties have studied the issue and wants to support the City of Charlotte. As I said earlier in this chamber that sports and entertainment is the major part of North Carolina economy and those local urban areas are working towards making sure that that’s a good effort across North Carolina. So certainly we urge your support for this local bill for the City of Charlotte. Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Any further discussion or debate? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Tucker, for what purpose do you arise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Just to ask a question of not the bill sponsor, but of a Senate Graham. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senate Graham, do you yield for question? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I do. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senate Graham, since you stated that this was a bipartisan effort, are we hearing the Senate to assume that the local delegation from Mecklenburg County are all in agreement. [SPEAKER CHANGES] In reference to the Mecklenburg delegation certainly I can speak for myself and the two members who have signed on to this bill as co-sponsors coming from the House. The local delegation took no position official other than hearing the information coming from the City of Charlotte, but certainly we support the Carolina Panthers. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Clodfelter, for what purpose do you arise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] To move under rule 29 that I will be recused from voting on this bill, I have sent forward to the clerk a statement of my reasons for the excuse. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Senator. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Any other discussion or debate? Hearing none. The question for the Senate is the passage of the Committee Substitute to House Bill 193 on its second reading. All in favor will vote aye. All opposed will vote no. Five seconds to be allowed for the voting. The clerk will record the vote. 45 having voted in the affirmative and zero in the negative Committee Substitute to House Bill 193 passes its second reading without objection, will be read a third time. [SPEAKER CHANGES] North Carolina General Assembly enacts. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Is there any further discussion or debate? Hearing none. All in favor of the passage of the Committee Substitute to House Bill 193 on its third reading will say aye. Opposed no. The ayes have it. Committee Substitute to House Bill 193 passes its third reading and will be enrolled. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Moving on the public bills, second reading, Senate Bill 98, clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senate Bill 98, Require Pulse Oximetry Newborn Screening. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senate Brock is recognized to explain the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you. Mr. President. Senate Bill 98 will require the Pulse Oximetry in Newborn Screenings and it will detect congenital heart defects and directs the public – Commission for Public Health to adopt temporary and permanent rules to include Pulse Oximetry Screening in newborn, in the newborn screening program that we have at our hospitals. Over half of our hospitals use this already, it’s a newer technology. The physical impact, it is negligible. Looking at the cost of it, it’s a two-minute procedure, as Senator Barefoot said yesterday in Committee, but looking at the not only the cost savings, but life savings of this bill and now to help our children of our state. One great example we had yesterday in committee, was Grace for ?? was there, who is now seven years old that wasn’t called, but her surgery that she had when she was 18 days old, cost over $200,000. So hopefully with this test we can detect these problems early to make sure that we take care of our babies. I urge your support. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Is there any further discussion or debate? Senator Tucker, for what purpose you arise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Speak to the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senate Tucker has the floor to…

It was so wonderful yesterday to see ?? in committee and being seven years old and having survived, not having this test but having the surgery to do so. A family in my area though, on the flip side, ?? the severity of this. Sean and Emily ?? daughter was born and did not have this test done. The little girl Sarah lived about thirty six hours. So the severity of not doing this and the lives that could be saved, I know everybody is on board with this but it's very real to infant children and I urge your support for the bill. Greg Olson, also too, tight end for the Carolina Panthers, since we mentioned the Carolina Panthers earlier; son had experienced the same thing happening and did not have the test and it is my understanding Greg's son has had three surgeries so far and doing well. So, ladies and gentlemen of the senate, this is something we can do that would be painless and just impact very little any kind of physical responsibility to the hospital so I urge your support for the bill. Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mister president. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brock, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] In my haste to get this bill passed, I forgot to send forth an amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator, do members have a copy? [SPEAKER CHANGES] They do. [SPEAKER CHANGES] You can send forward your amendment. The clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brock moves to amend the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brock is recognized to explain the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you mister president. This is technically a technical amendment. It changes the part of tele-medicine which in the bill was a live two way process and some of the technology with it; kind of a real world experience. Instead of being a live two way chat, this would be more of an email where you send and retrieval of the information; and the amendment is purely a technical one. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Any further discussion or debate? Hearing none, the question before the senate is the passage of amendment one. All in favor will vote aye. Opposed will vote no. Five seconds will be allowed for the voting. The clerk will record the vote. Stein, aye. Bryant, aye. Forty-six having voted in the affirmative and zero in the negative, amendment one is adopted. The bill as amended is back before the body. Any further discussion or debate? Hearing none, the question before the senate is the passage of senate bill 98 on its second reading.

[SPEAKER CHANGES] The general assembly of North Carolina enacts. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Any further discussion or debate? Hearing none, all in favor of the passage of senate bill 98 on its third reading will say aye. Opposed, no. The ayes have it. Senate bill 98 passes its third reading. The amendment will be engrossed and sent to the house. Senate bill 470. Clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senate bill 470. No beer, wine, if permit revoked or suspended. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Wade is recognized to explain the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you mister president. This is a very narrow scope bill. It only applies to business that have had their AVC permits revoked or suspended. And what it does, is that they are having a problem locally in Greensboro that a week after those licenses are suspended or revoked they re-open brown bagging and allowing patrons to come in and enjoy the festivities in the club and brown bag. And all this does is prevent brown bagging while their license is suspended or revoked. During committee we have a couple of concerns come up and I have a technical amendment I would like to put forth. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Do the members have a copy, senator? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes they do. [SPEAKER CHANGES] 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] We had a discussion and at the time we were a little bit concerned if the owner was leasing his property, it might affect the owner with his ability to re-lease his property one that tenant had moved and he would not be able to brown bag or have a business come on and do that and I think this takes care of that. And I would ask for your support. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Is there any other discussion or debate? Hearing none, the question before the senate is

passage of amendment 1. All in favor vote aye. Opposed will vote no. Five seconds will be allowed for the voting and the clerk will record the vote. Graham. [speaker changes] Aye.

The ayes have it. Committee substitute to Senate Bill 470 as amended passes its third reading. The amendment will be engrossed and sent to the house. Senate Bill 603, the clerk will read. [speaker changes] Senate Bill 603 clarify issuance of plates, certificates, law. [speaker changes] Senator Rabon is recognized to explain the bill. [speaker changes] Thank you Mr. President. Currently, the statutes for these license plates, the three agencies read Charlotte, Raleigh, and Fort Bragg. What this bill does is it changes those three words to Mecklenburg county, Wake County and Cumberland County. It simply cleans this up so if these plate agencies move out of the city or out of those specific spots, then they're still in the county and covered by the bill. Very simple and it's very forward. Thank you very much. [speaker changes] Any further discussion or debate? Senator Brown, for what purpose do you rise? [speaker changes] To ask the bill's sponsor a question. [speaker changes] Senator Rabon, do you yield for a question? [speaker changes] Senator Rabon, I'm sorry, I hadn't had the chance to study this. On the tag agents, right now, it's my understanding Fayetteville has one on the base. Is this saying that the state runs basically - is this saying that the state can expand that? [speaker changes] That is correct. There may be a problem with that one on the base because with military and they may have to move it off the base and that would then be in Cumberland county rather than in Fort Bragg. [speaker changes] And the state would continue to run that agency? [speaker changes] Yes-- [speaker changes] is what you're saying? [speaker changes] Yes. Yes they would. Just as is. [speaker changes] Any further discussion or debate? Hearing none, the question before the senate is the passage of Senate Bill 603 on its second 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. Berger, aye. Kinnaird, aye. 45 having voted in the affirmative and 1 in the negative. Senate Bill 603 passes its second reading without objection. Will be read a third time. [speaker changes] North Carolina General Assembly enacts. [speaker changes] Any further discussion or debate? Hearing none, all in favor of the passage of Senate Bill 603 n its third reading will say aye. Opposed no. The ayes have it. Senate Bill 603 passes its third reading and will be sent to the house. Senate Bill 659, the clerk will read. [speaker changes] Senate Bill 659 map 21 confirming revisions. [speaker changes] Senator Harrington is recognized to explain the bill. [speaker changes] Thank you Mr. President. Let me start by saying this is an agency bill and we do need to make these changes in the long session in order to continue receiving some federal funding that we are getting. I'll be as brief as I can to give you some details. Section 1 of the bill addresses open container requirements. Current North Carolina law is not in compliance with federal law and because of this, federal highway system has redirected 5% o fiscal year funds into alcohol impaired driving programs. The redirected money totals about 8 million dollars currently and will go up to 10 million in the fiscal year 2014. This money is needed for roads and this has to be done in the long session. To comply, North Carolina must prohibit the possession of any open alcoholic container in the passenger area of any motor vehicle located on a public highway or right of way of a public highway. Under North Carolina, the open container requirements apply only to

if a vehicle is required to be registered. This means that mopeds are exempted in North Carolina as not in compliance. This bill will correct that. Federal agencies have determined that North Carolina's repeat intoxicated driver law does not comply with the impoundment, immobilization or interlock installation and mandatory minimum sentence requirement. To comply, State law must require the impoundment, immobilization or interlocking of each vehicle owned, operated or owned and operated by a repeat intoxicated offender. To comply with mandatory minimums to repeat offender, State law must provide for a mandatory minimum sentence of not less than five days imprisonment or thirty days of community service for second offenders, and not less than ten days of imprisonment or sixty days community service for third or subsequent offenders. This bill will eliminate these exceptions in North Carolina law that cause us not to be in compliance with federal law, and allow us to continue receiving these federal funds. I appreciate your support. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Is there any further discussion or debate? Senator Newton, permission to rise. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To see if Senator Harrington will yield for a question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator to yield. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I'll try, but if it's technical, I might pass it over to Warren. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Senator Harrington. I just want to make sure I understood the first part of what you explained: the federal requirements about open containers: Are you saying that the federal requirements would mean that in North Carolina, if my wife and I and another couple want to ride down to Williamston Sunny Side Oyster Bar and have somebody drive us down there, that I can't have a cocktail or a beer in the car on the way? Is that what this change will mean? [SPEAKER CHANGES] No. Currently, there's a sort of loophole in the law that allows open containers on mopeds. This just closes that loophole. [SPEAKER CHANGES] On mopeds? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes. [SPEAKER CHANGES] ?? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Jenkins, you have permission to rise. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To ask the Senator to sponsor a question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Harrington, do you yield for a question? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I yield. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator, I just want to make it clear, if Senator Newton and his wife and another couple go ride piggyback on a motorped, that is their business, this would not involve a typical charter bus and that kind of thing. Is that correct? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Not to my understanding. It would not. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you very much. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Any further discussion or debate? Hearing none, the question before the Senate is the passage of Senate bill six-fifty-nine on its second reading. All in favor will vote aye. Opposed will vote no. Five seconds will be allowed for the vote. The Clerk will record the vote. Who on the aye? McKissick. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Aye. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Forty-six having voted in the affirmative and zero in the negative, Senate bill six-fifty-nine passes its second reading without objection. It will be read a third time.

Senate bill six-fifty-nine passes its third reading and will be sent to the House. Senate bill seven-o-nine, the Clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senate bill seven-o-nine allows D L T to set maximum speed limit of seventy-five miles per hour. Senator Hunt is recognized to explain the bill.

To come before the Senate. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mister President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brock, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] For an announcement.

Any further business to come before the Senate? Now the chair recognizes Senator Berger for a motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you mister President. I move that the Senate now adjourn subject to the referral and rereferral of bills and resolutions and the receipt of messages from the House and the Governor to reconvene on Monday, April 15, 2013 at seven PM.
