Representative: Thank you. The tax payer debt information act is about providing more transparency for the citizens about the cost of indebtedness of bond referendums. As a county commissioner for many years, I had to consider adoption of bond orders for many projects and was concerned that only the bond principal amount was emphasized during the bond adoption process and on the ballot question with little or no mention of the interest paid on the bonds, which, as you know, is a considerable amount. General obligation bonds give the authority to the elected body to tax the citizens to pay for the total cost of the bonds, and the citizens who have to pay for the bonds, are the least informed.

[SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Speaker, members of the House. This bill simply allows the governor to temporarily suspend the routine weight inspections of trucks prior to severe weather. One of the things that is important in this piece of legislation is that it identifies the time that the suspension will be lifted, which is after the threat of severe weather or damage from severe weather is passed. The storm may have already passed, but the threat of damage to the crops or so may still remain. I’ll be glad to answer any questions. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further Discussion? Further Debate?

[SPEAKER CHANGES] A Bill To Be Entitled An Act To Exempt Students Enrolled In The Occupational Course Of Study And The Extended Course Of Study From The Act And Act Precursor Testing Requirements. The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Whitmire, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, sir. House Bill 587 is an education reform bill that is intended to create an unintended consequence. Its objective is to exempt intellectually disable students, otherwise and officially referred to in other circles as mildly retarded, from the ACT College Entrance Exam. Currently all juniors, with the exception of the severely intellectually disabled take the ACT. And House Bill 587 seeks to exempt what would be the 98th and 97th percentile, who have an IQ between 55 and 70 and who are intellectually disabled, from a college entry exam that is nowhere near what their curriculum or their god-given ability is. So with that, these students are almost always put into the.

...occupational course of study. You have at your desk two case examples from my county. There are many more. There are some success stories from these groups; these kids have much to offer. And with that, the one thing that this bill seeks to do is not to make them endure a test that absolutely humiliates them, irates [sic] and makes their parents very mad and oftentimes frustrates educators that ask why do I have to give this test. In the process, we spend between 130 and 190 thousand dollars on this test, giving it to these kids that really shouldn't be taking it. Mr. Speaker, I have an amendment to offer, and if we could bring that up on the dashboard, please. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman will please -- the House will be at ease. [pause] I believe the amendment is on the dashboard. The gentleman is recognized to send forth the amendment. The Clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Whitmire moves to amend the bill on page one, lines 12-14 by rewriting the lines to read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to debate the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, sir. This amendment, so that I can very accurately say, after this amendment hopefully passes pending your approval; there will be no known opposition to the bill. What this amendment does is makes sure that there's no inadvertent violation of federal Individuals With Disabilities Education Act criteria. And while it's a couple of lines long, that's the purpose of the amendment. So I ask that you support the amendment, please. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion? Further debate on the amendment? If not, the question before the House is passage of the amendment sent forth by Representative Whitmire for the House Committee Substitute of House Bill 587. All in favor vote aye; all opposed vote no. The Clerk will open the vote. [pause] The Clerk will let the machine record the vote. 113 having voted in the affirmative; one in the negative, the amendment passes. We're now back on the bill. Further discussion? Further debate on the bill? If not, the question before the House is the passage of the House Committee Substitute to House Bill 587 on its second reading. All those in favor will vote aye; all opposed vote no. The Clerk will open the vote. [pause] All members wishing to record please do so at this time. Representatives, Representative Hanes. The Clerk will let the machine record the vote. 113 having voted in the affirmative, one in the negative, the House Committee Substitute to House Bill 587 as amended has passed its second reading.

[SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Whitmire, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Members of the House, this one's a little shorter to discuss. 588 is another education reform bill that has two objectives. The first and primary objective is to make the individualized education plans that we use to ensure that our disabled students receive the best education with the least restrictive environment is able to be done better, but also more efficiently in terms of time by the educators who have to prepare them. So with that, it basically directs the state Board of Education to seek out ways to use technology with drop-down menus, select items, and such as that to make the forms that are very laborious with a lot of narrative simpler, shorter, but more thorough. The second part is a very surgical correction in terms of education reform but also some regulatory reform. I simply, within the constraints of federal guidelines, reducing the disadvantaged student reports from two required per year to one required per year. These, and others that will follow in the next couple of weeks, come from a very thorough look by multiple expertise--subject matter experts in the field of education given inputs for regulatory reform. And, I ask you to support 588, please. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion? Further debate? If not, the question before the House is the passage of the House Committee substitute to House Bill 588 on its--[end of data...]

I'm not going to go over all late but I am going to go over the first two parts and talk about the real red meat of the bill, Mister Speaker, then a few good recognized arson glazier and other primary sponsors if they choose to speak normal encrypted, and Glazer go through parts of three through eight and allow him to come back in touch on the first two parts that I will spend my time talking about with my minutes, [SPEAKER CHANGES] the two pieces of this bill that is the real red meat and potatoes that we've been so interested in for many sessions again as part one into which deals with issues of tenure and deals with the issues off alternative pay performance pay merit pay whatever term you choose to call it will start with partone of the bill, which in my opinion, is the first attempt for the first real short of parts of the general assembly of how are we going to get to a performance pay our merit pay model. we talked about it. we've talked about it. we decided we want to do it. the problem is that I can figure out how to do it. it's complicated in many education institutes in things other states who done it is a struggle to get there. what this bill does is it creates a task force to study things like performance pay merit pay and compensation in general, and this will be one of our speaker and be appointed by the president protem, the Senate age chamber non members, which includes four members of the legislature. the age group and then stakeholders from the education community calls it is very important. I believe I have by and to keep everyone seated at table, working together to try to come up such a plan, this task force within bring a plan him General assembly Russ to work with and move forward with us. I hosted a true performance by plan or the state art through the bill deals with dinner for another hot subject that we've talked about for video years. it will pardon me, I'm struggling a bit with allergies less law about sniffles, but the genuine reform as under current law denier is something that basically is forever once you achieve it. you've got it. so how does this help us with our effort to try to make sure we have high performing a very effective teachers in the classroom. it basically uses the Colorado model, but acquits it so that it fits in North Carolina and it sends up a probationary non- probationary status. you currently have in your

...allows you to start out with a non-probationary status. And why is that important? One, it helps us to allude law suits. We spoke with staff, when you have tenure, you have a property ownership of something. And to just strike that away and take it away it would be certain law suit.This would allow them, who already have it to start out with non-probationary status. But what's the game changer? The game changer is you can lose it under this plan. How do you lose it? You lose it by first... when you are observed by your principal at the school and you're given a poor observation and they identify a problem, you have one year to fix it. People go through life situations and things come up that could cause a person to have a bad year in teaching. It could happen in any career. but this gives you a chance. One year to fix it, if it's not fixed you lose your non-probationary status, you then go to probationary and in this bill we do not change the definition of what a probationary teacher is. And you can be let go. Making it, having a way and creating a way in a much easier fashion to get rid of a tenured teacher. Which we do not have in current law. How do you get to non-probationary status if you're a beginning teacher? Well, under current law it takes four years to get tenure status and stand in the same school system. This bill leaves it, it takes four years to get to non-probationary status with again the catch is, once you get it it's not for life.You've got to keep performing. So this is truly, in my opinion the performance model that we've been asking for. You do well, you keep non-probationary. You start slippin' up, you've got a year to fix it, you don't fix it and then the superintendent or the principal can remove you from the system. Mr. Speaker that's the two heaviest lifts, in my opinion of this bill. I do have an amendment, but Mr. Speaker I'd request that you let the other primary sponsors speak if they so choose. I know Representative Glazier wants to be recognized to cover the remaining parts of the bill and he may have comments on the first two sections as well. But after they conclude, if I could be recognized for the amendment before we begin any debate. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Ladies and gentlemen of the house, I thinks it's appropriate, before we get started given that this is dealing with an education matter, we have several teachers up in the gallery that the chair would like to again extend a courtesies of the gallery to the teachers in the gallery. Please stand and let us welcome you. [applause] Representative Glazier, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] This gentleman is recognized to debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. Speaker and members and I will be brief. I do want to say first, thank you to all of the members who've participated. This is truly a bipartisan effort. And in a sense in a very different way than the senate approach a corresponding bill that we'll be looking at. This really involved a lot of stake holders and a lot of work to get to this point. My task is to quickly outline the last couple sections of the bill and then one last comment on the first sections. Part three of the bill creates additional professional development capacity for the teachers. And allows them flexibility but also encourages more digital capacity and integrated digital capacity in that professional development. Part four of the bill is simply representative Langan's bill. Which I believe unanimously, well it didn't unanimously but passed by a large margin in the floor. that modifies the A through F standards in a way to at least include growth components. And in a way that perhaps gets a better rating for schools relative to what they're really doing and how they are improving. The next section of the bill,section five, you've already voted on. It was part of the School safety bill. And it really just makes sure that the school improvement teams are what we think they are.If there's transparencies, the teachers and parents really do have a say in those plans. And that those plans are used not only to improve school but to deal with school safety issues that we know exist. The next part of the bill, part six, is following a Rhode Island model which creates academic credit for clerkships, internships and summer work experiences. And directs the State department to look at setting standards for contact hours, supervision requirements and academic requirements so that we can actually give students academic credit in certain areas for their work over the summer and for work that we think aligns with the common core or with any of the standards that we have. And accelerates their ability to remove and get out of high school faster.

and finally, the last part of the bill, which is section seven, simply is a good amendment to the Medical Care program. We have a number of people were designated as medical team members in schools. Unfortunately, we didn't put in there that they have to be trained before they're designated as medical team members, which might be a good thing, since they're handing out medication and things like that. So, that's the remaining portions of the bill, my last comment on the first two parts are very similar to representative Holloway's, and that is you'll see an amendment which will correct a few things, and take us forward. But this really is the best model that I've seen in the country for how we keep good teachers, how we don't hurt good teachers. We in fact make sure that they keep a non probationary status and can go forward and do the things they want. At same time making it a little easier for systems to make sure that teachers who are not continuing to perform are perhaps allowed to leave, and asked to leave little quicker in the system, so that we can move forward. I think this is based on the Colorado model, which had 94% of its legislatures voting for it. There's certainly work to be done, when it passes over to the senate, but I really think there ought to be accommodation for all of the leadership who's been involved in allowing us to move this bill forward, I think it does a whole lot more to improve better teaching and better learning in the bill that we may be seeing coming over from our sister body. Thank you, Mr. Speaker. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Ladies and gentlemen, the chair is happy to extend another welcome to another group of elementary school students. A group of students, teachers and chaperones from a school of my neck of the woods, Matthews Elementary School. Students, welcome. Representative Holloway, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. Speaker, not seeing the other primary sponsors in the queue, I suppose we're ready to send forth the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to send forth an amendment. The clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Holloway moves to amend the bill on page three, lines 13 to 14 by rewriting Friday those bills to read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to debate the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The amendment, if you're looking at it on the dashboard, and I'm so old school I went up and asked a clerk where was the copy. I'm always over here struggling. But, the amendment really is nothing more than pure technical and clarifying language. As representative Glazier referenced, we've been meeting with all the stakeholders. This just adds more clarifying language to clarify what our intentions are in the bill. It does not change anything, and it just helps give them a little more comfort. I'd be glad to go into more explanation, but in all honesty it really is nothing more than just technical, and clarifying language. Ask for your support. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate on the amendment?

And pretty much said that the pain that he had was more just a chest muscle pain, as they kind of figure it was, and he seemed to confirm that by getting up this morning and doing push ups and having the same pain.
