To.

of North Carolina enacts. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Moffitt is recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Members of the house, this bill received quite a bit of debate last Thursday. Quite a bit of discussion regarding the local impact that this bill will have. We adopted an amendment offered by speaker pro tem Stam, which took a good bill and made it better. Essentially, what this bill does is allow for a framework to exist in statute to provide for the orderly consolidation of multiple public enterprises. I would ask for your support. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Fisher is recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. To debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] You're recognized to debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Ladies and gentlemen, I just want to remind the body of a few issues around this bill, and the reasons why I will be voting no. There is still some confusion about whether this is a local bill or a statewide bill. We had 60 plus resolutions coming from cities all over the state of North Carolina opposing this legislation. It is a bill that will take a very well cared for, very well run asset away from the city of Asheville. The city has an outstanding track record in terms of caring for the water system, and proof of that is the location of two west coast breweries to Asheville. They want clean, well cared for water when they move their businesses to the mountains, and that's what they get with a very well run Asheville water system. Again, this bill is not just about Asheville, it's about the entire state. As my colleague across the aisle said, it lays a framework, it puts a framework in statute that could one day affect your city, your town. I will be voting no on this bill, and I ask for you to join me in opposing house bill 488. Thank you very much. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Mcgrady is recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To speak on the bill. Mr. Speaker, I rise to support the bill. This is a bills to create a regional entity to manage a regional asset, that being water, and a regional cost, that being sewer. When I last spoke on the floor, I sort of told members what the arguments that we're going to be made here were. They weren't made so much today, but it was privatization, it was Henderson county, it was the overreaching and that there was no compensation for the city of Asheville, and those were the issues that were discussed. I guess my disappointment still is that the argument is being made that this is about Asheville, and it's not. But that's the argument that such a problem. It's always about Asheville, and it's never about Asheville's neighbors, and it's never about Asheville being a good neighbor to its neighbor. There's no remorse about the fact that Henderson county's water has been surrendered to the city of Asheville, and yet Henderson County has had no representation in any water issues as they are discussed in the region. This bill will correct that problem. It's a bill to address regional issues in a regional way. And that's why I urge your support of the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion or debate? If not, the question before the house is the passage of house bill 488 as amended on its third roll call reading. All those in favor will vote aye. All those opposed will vote no. The clerk will open the vote. The clerk will close the vote. The ayes are 72. The no's are 39. The bill has passed its third reading, and as engrossed will be sent to the senate. House bill 240.

We read the short title last week; we had a unanimous vote. I would appreciate your support again tonight. Thank you, Mr. Speaker. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion and debate?

[SPEAKER CHANGES] We have a substitute for house 88 today, an act entitled technical corrections to the law pertaining to ?? lien agents. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Jordan is recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr Speaker. House Bill 88 was originally a bill by Rep. Hurley but it was identical to Senate 45, which was an act

...is SL 2013-18 on April 3rd. So we are using this bill to make some technical corrections to the lien law that we passed last session. Section 1 simply changes language from used by the owner to occupied, so it's your primary residence. Section 2 has a conforming change simply replacing furnish labor with furnished labor, materials, rental equipment or professional designer or surveying services. Section 3 was removed because it's no longer necessary because of the changes we've made in the law. And 4, 5 and 6 are conforming changes. Mr. Speaker, I'm ready to answer any questions, but these are all technical corrections to the law that we passed last session. I would urge your approval. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion or debate? If not, the question before the House is the passage of House Bill 88 on its second reading. All those in favor will vote aye, those opposed will vote no. The clerk will open the vote. The clerk will close the vote. A hundred and twelve voting aye, zero voting no.

House Bill 203, which is the presiding officer's bill. Would ask that that bill be removed from today's calendar and calendared for Wednesday, the 17th. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Any objection to re-calendaring this bill for Wednesday? If not, so ordered. [SPEAKER CHANGES] And the last bill on the calendar, members, Senate Bill 122, which is the sex trafficking sex offender registration. Ask that that bill be removed from tonight's calendar and calendared for tomorrow, the 16th. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The request is that it be re-calendared, Senate Bill 122, last bill on the calendar, be re-calendared for tomorrow or Tuesday. Is there objection? If not, so ordered. [SPEAKER CHANGES] And also, if whoever is going to be carrying that bill on the floor could either contact myself or Representative Jordan, we'd appreciate it.

It is exactly what it sounds like. It allows, and it actually comes out of our digital learning committee over the summer where we learned that LEA's were buying refurbished computers.

General Assembly of North Carolina enacts. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative McGrady is recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Speak on the bill, Mr. Speaker. House Bill 321 eliminates a requirement that counties develop a 10-year comprehensive solid waste plan. And makes them conforming law changes. This bill was unanimously recommended by both the Environment and the Government committees. Intuitively, some may wonder why are you doing away with this planning requirement.

House Bill 333 is a bill that actually, sections one and section two, were an exact mirror of Senate Bill 123 which we passed out of here last month 110 to nothing. And section three is actually a section that changes, or closes a loop hole in the law that where a sexual offender gets released from prison they have to indicate the county that they are going to go register in. And if they don't show up in that county there is a question of jurisdiction. What this does is simply stip-, stipify that when they indicate which county they are going to, that county immediately has jurisdiction from that point on. So if they don't show up that county has the jurisdiction to look for them. [SPEAKER CHANGES] So do you want to offer your amendment now. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes sir. [SPEAKER CHANGES] All right. Clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Warren moves to amend the bill on page one, lines five through 17. By removing those lines and renumbering the remaining sections of the bill accordingly and. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Warren is recognized to explain his amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] All this does is remove sections one and two which have already passed under Senate Bill 123. And it corrects language on, in section three which is, was problematic for law enforcement. So I ask your support on the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion or debate on the amendment? If not the question before The House is the adoption of the amendment by Representative Warren. All those in favor will vote aye, opposed will vote no. The Clerk will open the vote.
