Death due to maltreatment of a juvenile or to prevent another person from making such a report. [SPEAKER CHANGES] House bill 149 calendar. Senators, we can move right into our calendar for the day, starting with public bills with a third reading, r7oll call bill, House bill 488. The clerk will read House bill 488, regionalization of public utilities. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Nesbitt, what purpose do your rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. President. To make a motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Nesbiit, you have the floor for your motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. President and members of the Senate. I wanted to make a motion that this bill be taken off and put on for next Tuesday. I think that would be Tuesday the 7th of May, and I'd like to speak to that motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Nesbitt, you have the floor to speak your motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. President, and I think all the members are aware that Senator Apodaca is out for the rest of this week, and I've not had a chance to talk to him and I wouldn't talk to him under these conditions, about a bill like this. I just, I suggested to the folks that are still here that we put this bill off till he can get back, and that came back no. And I felt it important to bring it to the membership. I have a very hard time with a contentious bill like this being heard. When a member is not here and has a very good reason for not being here, and has a very good reason to have us, if you would take care of them while they're gone. Senator Apodaca doesn't like this bill much more than I do, and probably when he gets back, he won't have anything to say about it, but I just really think that the members ought to think about this. I know he was asked and said go ahead and run it, but all of you have been where when your parents passed, and sometimes your friends need to take care of you too. But anyhow, that's my suggestion to the membership, that we put it off till next Tuesday. This is not time sensitive, and you all know me pretty well. I'm not trying to stall. I'm going to say the same thing next Tuesday that I'm going to say tonight. But I think out of deference to our each other, we need to not do this. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brunstetter , what purpose do you arise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] To speak to the motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brunstetter has the floor to speak to the motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Nesbitt, thank you for giving me a heads up on this so that we can talk it through. Senator Apodaca was very clear that although he's going to be very disappointed in hearing what Senator Nesbitt has to say tonight, other than a technical amendment, he has said what he intends to say on this bill and would like us to run this, so I would ask that you vote no on the motion to carry this bill over to next Tuesday. [SPEAKER CHANGES] So Senators, we're going to have to vote on the motion now. The motion is to postpone to a certain day. All in favor. All in favor of the motion to postpone to a certain day will vote aye, opposed will vote no. 5 seconds will be allowed for the voting. The clerk will record the vote. 16 having voted in the affirmative, and 32 in the negative. The motion fails. The bill.

The system and not at all if a day-care, $18.00 for a system ?? has a hot day, but one day and age when it would be an ominous sign your letter will be spread out among them the high water users with that, the areas of the access to which you that this a system-action had invested 6% of our system admin said, adding users are startled a 94% of the redemption of a time in an 8-8 and 40% of the parties because the offense, Marion Merrell middle of the inventors and before you have been having a tougher time that that has headed the assisted by news of the once-in-command of 80 of a ??

Maybe they didn't want to pay that, but I think bottom line is the city of Hendersonville looked at this bill and said, "I don't want any part of it. I don't want to have to bill the water and sewer for these fellows out in the county that have spent all these years not tending to their business. They don't have a water source. They don't have a sewage treatment plant, and they want, first of all, access to the two of those. That's probably two billion dollars worth of assets over there in our system that they want immediate access to. And then, they want us to pay ninety-four percent of the build-out for the rest of their system. This is insane. I hope that you now understand what's going on and just how crazy this can get when somebody decides they're going to start messing with these assets. The Henderson County system that could take all of this and spread it among its people over there is not participating in this deal. It's time to vote against this bill and the others that look just like it. By the way, we're fixing to do the bond thing here. You just need to know that. You remember all the hoorah we had about Charlotte and whether or not we could ?? transfer those bonds. And we got an opinion from several lawyers. But Vance Holloman with the Treasurer's office put a letter out to us that said he was seriously concerned about taking assets from local government that were under bond. The reason being you will have to disclose, once you start doing this on any bond issue, that the asset you're bonding for your revenue source could be taken from that entity at any moment by state government. When you do that, you're going to damage the bonds all over this state. Never mind it didn't happen in your county. It doesn't matter. If it happens in my county, it could happen in your county. And there are bonds associated with this that would be transferred. And they have every bit the same problem. There's absolutely no way that the conditions could be complied with by the date you're supposed to transfer this property, and we're just wading in the swamp, folks. And we need to put a stop to it before it gets out of hand. I urge you to vote against the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Any further discussion today? Hearing now in request before the senate. Is the passage of the city committee to substitute the House bill 488 as amended on its third reading? All in favor, vote "Aye" Opposed vote "No". Five seconds to be allowed for the voting.

[SPEAKER CHANGES] Objection. ?? We're going to move right into public bill's second reading, Senate bill 452, clerical reading. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senate bill 452, Jurisdiction on Mass Arbitration Small Claims Court [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Goolsby is recognized to explain the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. President. This bill came before the body last week, and Senator Brunstetter asked that there be a physical mode on it. It was run, and there was no additional cost system as I understand it. I'd appreciate your support of the bill. I've already explained. If you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Kinnaird, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] To ask Senator Goolsby a question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Goolsby, do you yield? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I do. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you. We had talked in committee about arbitration as opposed to mediation, and they're very different animals. And, while this is voluntary and not binding, it disturbs me that we're creating a new

429: Speaker 1: Procedure and courts, because I have never been there before and I would like if you could explain to me why mediation is not in here and the need for arbitration which is a new procedure. Speaker changes: Yes ma’am, Senator it’s actually not new, I have handled a number of small claims actions and when that actually xxxx goes to arbitration before it goes to trial in District court . This continues that procedure, and makes it as condition preceded in order to collect your fees and costs if on the third appeal you were in the district court for trial. Speaker changes: Mr. Chairperson Speaker changes: Senator can I ask for what purpose you arise? Speaker changes: I would like to find out about mediation because we have talked about that and would like to know.. Speaker changes: xx Speaker changes: So the lady wants to speak to the Speaker changes: I am sorry I have to ask Senator Cosby to Speaker changes: to address. Speaker changes: To specifically address Speaker changes: Senator Cosby .. Speaker changes: On mediation. Thank you. Speaker changes: xx ma’am. Speaker changes: xxx a question? Speaker changes: Can you ask the question please…once again. Speaker changes: xx I am just looking for why mediation is not specifically addressed in the bill. Speaker changes: Yes ma’am, I didn’t have the vote to change the procedure. I didn’t want to answer, I did not vote to change the current procedure of the law. Mediation is always available if the party so desire, the court could direct the parties to consider the act. It doesn’t change anything, it allows the court procedure for the appeals, just for the other members to understand when you appeal, when you are in small claims court you can always appeal for a[ tridenovo??]or a district court. Xx However when the jurisdiction of that court is only $15,OOO/ it’s automatically arbitration that is considered . This tries to keep that up. So even if the parties after arbitration wanted to go into a trial in District court with the jury, the judge could still order mediation . The parties could at any time agree for mediation and I am not opposed to mediation whatsoever , it has solved a lot of cases for me and the circle that the arbitration and the continued adversario ??status of the case would make it happen in the xx sooner rather than later. Thank you.

[SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Tillman is recognized to explain the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mister president, thank you. Members, what this bill does is it takes many of the regulations that are on the books regarding public schools and removes them. These are reports that are either not used or redundant in some way, have no useful purpose, and information is found in other places. And what we try to do is remove all of those, but I have an amendment, mr. president, to send forth to members to have a copy. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Members, the amendment is on your dashboard. Clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Tillman moves to amend the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Tillman is recognized to explain the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you mr. president. To explain the amendment. Something new on the scene is called power school. Power school is replacing the NCY's legislation. It required a whole lot of data from schools to be entered on attendance and absences and whether you were eating in the lunch room and on and on and on. And now, the power school is going to replace that. However, in power school, and you will be hearing about this if you talk to school people, it is requiring much more, it's much more broad based, lots more information. And I'm asking DPI to limit the scope of that and the amount of time that it takes. The teacher, in the classroom, is going to be taking from five minutes up to fifteen or twenty minutes of class time to do this report. They gotta punch in all this data. Some of the data, I can not for the life of me see where it is necessary. I don't know enough to be sure that it's not. So I'm going to ask DPI to report back the ?? oversight by July 30th what changes in reductions they make in this bill and exactly how much on average time it takes from the classroom teacher. And if necessary, we will come back and fix that too. That's all the amendment does. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Any further discussions? Debate?

This for driver's license test. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brock is recognized to explain the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. President. Currently those people with low vision in the state of North Carolina that need a bi-optic lens, which is, it looks like a little binocular on top of the lens that people with low vision very quickly glance and look at street signs or other things they need to read while they're going down the road. Currently they can't use it when they're trying to take a sight test for driving. With this legislation they will be able to take the test with the bi-optic lens, but plus must go to meet the certain requirements for restrictions only to drive during the daytime and they must not only pass the vision test but also make sure they have sign-off from their optometrist or ophthalmologist.
