?? unskilled or semi-skilled and the people I work with everyday are hardworking people. They're ?? living for recreational boaters and anglers. Our business depends on recreational anglers. The Recreation in Boating and Fishing Foundation showed that about 33% of fishing participants own a boat and about 52% of the participants are considering the purchase of a boat in order to have better or more access to fish. Anglers are interested in abundance of fish and an occasional opportunity for trophy-sized fish. Recreational fishing does create jobs and does stimulate economic activity. It pays my bills. It's done it for over 31 years. The bill... This is a tough situation that the bill will create jobs. I think the abundance of fish, it will help many people that don't directly touch the fish or commercially sell fish. We actually rely on recreational fishing to make a living. Please help us and support the Game Fish Bill. Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Hello. I'm Steven Hammonds. I'm the Executive Director for CTA. I'm a paid staff just like Mr. ?? is for the commercial industry. I come to you not as a commercial angler and I had a script all written out but I've sat here, listened to both sides argue for the Game Fish Bill. And I'm not a commercial angler and I don't even do recreational fishing because they work me too hard. I don't even get on the water as much as I'd like to. But I do know something about ??. I was picking up leaves at the age of four. I understand a little bit about what you're saying on the ?? side. However, the State of North Carolina has to look beyond the ?? just like what you did in the ?? situation and do what's best for the entire citizenry of North Carolina. And by doing that, they'll pass this bill. they'll pass the Game Fish Bill and the money and I'm not even gonna do the figures because the figures have been beaten to death by both sides. Thank you. But I also want you to remember another thing. The bill not only concerns game fish. And if you look at the bill clearly, it also allocates money for the observer funds, for the floundry fisheries which is from what commercial people tell me is a whole lot more available than these three fish are. The bill is providing money for observer funds. It's also providing funding for dredging. It might not be a lot to you smaller fishermen but I guarantee it means a lot to the bigger fishermen in this room. They won't let ?? bill pass and that's part of where the bill is ??. And it's not just about game fish. We're wrapped up in understanding the emotion behind it. But please look at the bill as a whole, complete deal and I think you'd be satisfied with it. Thank you very much. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Hello. My name is Nick Hamilton. I'm a fish and wildlife biologist. And I come to you today after 37 year career with the Wildlife Resource Commission. Presently, I'm working for the North Carolina Wildlife Federation where I take an objective look of the management of all the wildlife resources of the State of North Carolina. I encourage the general assembly to do the right thing. I'm pleased to report that all the game fish and all the game animals of North Carolina are doing quite well. They're being managed quite efficiently and effectively by the Wildlife Resources Commision and the US Fishing Wildlife Service which manages and monitors ??. No game animal or game fish has ever been classified as threatened or endangered. In fact, none have ever been classified depleted. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for our marine fisheries which have been managed with a commercial component over the years. The river herring has been depleted, season is closed. Sturgeon is endangered and is completely protected. The speckled sea trout is depleted with restrictive limits. Gray trout, depleted, severely restricted. Southern flounder depleted. ?? depleted. Another thing I heard a lot about the 99 ?? fisheries ?? today, I call your attention to the fact that the 1997 Fishery Reform had a preamble which is identical to the preamble for the House Bill 983. It says exactly the same thing so it cannot be referred in one way. ??

Further discussion, further debate? Seeing none, the representative ?? made a motion for a favorable report to the bill. If you favor the motion, please signify by saying "aye". [SPEAKER CHANGES]Aye. [SPEAKER CHANGES]Those opposed please signify by saying "no". [SPEAKER CHANGES] No. [SPEAKER CHANGES] In the opinion of the chair, the "aye"s have it and the bill is given a favorable report. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you representative Lambeth. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Next bill on our calendar today is House Bill 460, short title "Epedite Voter Maintenance Lists". And representative Hurley is here to explain the bill representative Hurley you have the floor. Is there PCS? There is no PCS. House Bill 460 is before us. Welcome to elections committee. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mister Chair and committee. Representative Boles is also here with me today. I decided to do this bill and as you know the integrity of the voter rolls is very very important. And the names are never removed unless they are absolutely positive that is the persons name that was, that has passed away. I decided to do this bill when as last year I was looking at my constituents list from the county. And saw that two friends names were still on the rolls, and one had died a year ago, and one had died 3 years ago. And so I started checking to see why that was still happening, and I went to the trouble to get the form for these family members to remove those names. And also the military, the forms don't always get to our Register ?? when they pass away in the military. Or if they are from out of state, they don't always get there. I'd like for Representative Boles to tell you how the death certifcate comes about and what happens to it and how it goes. And then tell you why we want to do what we want to do with this bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Gentlman Moore is recognized to speak on the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you. Pat and I have talked about this bill. It doesn't mandate the fueneral director to notify any board of elections. What it does is, then, during the family conference when the fueneral director and family share information in order to obtain a death certificate which is taken to the department of health first. And then the original copy is taken to the Register ?? so we can receive the certified copies. At this point as we're obtaining death certificate information we're going over information we advised them, they need to go by the Clerk of Court. Or have the attorney for the state if they're of VA benefits that the county offers, VA. And what we'd also like to do is just recommend that the funeral director explain to them that they may want to go by the board of elections as the family representative and remove their name from the rolls. [SPEAKER CHANGES] We didn't want to mandate so I got with Representative Alexander and Representative Boles and also the board, the lobbyists for the funeral home. And we agreed that they would give the forms, provide the forms for the families to give to the, take to the Register, to the board of elections where the person in the county where the person lived. Also is adding other people who are on the estate. Right now it's just your relatives. But now they've added the executive or administrator or the attorney for the estate can also do that. And that was just a small step to help assure that those that are deceased are removed from our rolls. And are not kept on our rolls. On a voluntary basis, not mandating. I'd be glad to take any questions. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Any questions to the bill's sponsor? Representative Conrad you're recognized for a question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Not a question but I'll make a motion- [SPEAKER CHANGES] ?? Let's see, any question on the bill? Represnetative ?? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mister Chair. I guess, I'm not sure how to describe this question, but. You say that this form is going to be given to a family member? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Your relative. The person that normally comes into the funeral home when the person dies. Normally it is a husband, wife, sister, brother, child. [SPEAKER CHANGES] State your follow-up. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I guess my concern there is the hesitancy of a spouse or whoever to actually do that. Severing ties. And I was just wondering if by chance this is something funeral director might, could they also submit that form? [SPEAKER CHANGES] No ma'am. [SPEAKER CHANGES] They

When you win person down, were mandated by law Social Security to notify the home, but we is not our responsibility to contact Social Security only have the family of verbally and settlement was so security is also not our responsibility to file the VA benefits for the person hits the funeral directors is a service that he and all for war. He will assist you in contacting the VA 's, but we cannot go to these different agencies and sprinkled half of the family and then you ask about a family member company and on the death certificate. It has the informant offers the responsible person for this under General statute. There is a pecking order of who is liable for the certificates in that split over this if this is the bill sponsors are further comment in right now [SPEAKER CHANGES] they of the board of elections. This is done on what's written Vietnam already near relatives, and then going to keep at the same why it could be a cousin of mine when others have passed away at here, but right now they will not take up a united looking not be your miscreant, but you can go in and tell him or even signing thing that this is just another means to help them to take the name of the role legally knowing for sure that [SPEAKER CHANGES] it is a person who has passed away versus Arsenal versus the gentleman that is in question, and I am this just allows the family to be proactive in making sure the system soft rolls, but wanted everyone to core processes of the board of elections uses you simply go through the obituaries everyday or do they get notices wrong. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The registered deeds as to people who deceased winner is a process for which there are also purged down this just allows family members. Be proactive in right now they cannot use obituaries agonizing because you think our date may be incorrect, something that incorrect. I have to have something to get actual certified death certificate. Copy of that or a written notice from a family member and this is just adding the administrator or the executor or the attorney for the estate also to be able to do this fill out this form. I already have these forms at sea on board of elections. It looks like this and we will permit will be provided if this bill passes to the funeral home, so that they can give out personal instead that can be taken care of if they will, in the county where the person Leah and my and the reason the money was in art show is right next year to five points in the people were dying in the High Court hospital to just give her County, even though was physically fit and ending the death certificate with him. From Guilford, but the information deviant. It got to Randolph was not being done and supposedly the DHHS sends a copy of the once you've owned I have a database that, the counties can get the names of the deceased accounts of the people enough with all the names are still not being removed. Even with that process of this is just another small piece of the anger trying to get it removed if it gets me us on this in further discussion. We don't have a motion before shipment. Think ever since our first tennis. I heard him shout such purpose at what you say has an SSRI will him and I'm currently, the law requires DHHS again on a monthly basis, unnamed husband and deceased individuals of their enough certificates for which arguments the same board. He then transmit sensory County Board of elections who is responsible for removing them if they have a match between that information in the deceased voters at bread-and-butter registration information fingers and bells like that they can mistake on

Because of the rule committee and hospitals most people don't die in their own county like lot a people die do Chapel Heal, charlotte, ?? or advance facilities. So therefore couldn't have Darn the HHS your death certificate is filed in the county of death not in your residence. That would be durum haven't to send one hundred counties this records. [SPEAKER CHANGES] You may have an initial follow up. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Right it is on the county. Right but I understand that you are saying that it has a massive state agency to the state board of elections. What this does is encourage local families to go to the local board of elections and it doesn't get caught in the massive paper work. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I think Representative Hurley want to respond to also. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Well this came from the board of elections when I ask about it. To set full with the conversation you ask on how I like some of the issues that may prevent this ease of voters being removed county's voter list. Some counties will allow on a monthly report for body to the end by the state board of elections to remove voters predeceased. In compiling these among the county reports is agency use data provided to us monthly by the NC department of health and human services. Under current law counties are task researching these monthly reports to determine if any registered voter in their counties is no longer qualified to vote because he is already ceased. When conducting this research. County is looking for data matches. They are looking to see if a registered voter based on elements such as name birth and date of birth matches the deceased record on the DHSS list with out of data match counties will not remove voter. Many county boards also work with the local registered date officials. And all counties remove deceased voters if they have received a signed notification from a relative. So they do not remove them unless things match. Your birthday may be incorrect, something they may have a first name like my name its Patricia Allan. I might have gone by may be on the Allan and if it doesn't match exactly they will not remove it so this is just another. It's not gonna remove everybody but it's gonna help with those who get mixed like I said man from ?? county who died in Guilford county even though the supposedly system was supposed to work. It didn't worked. Three years ago one that when you just go when I was not looking for him I just met him accidentally and how many more out there with it. It's just a simply thing it's not a man date it's just gonna help some more authorial that are truly deceased. [SPEAKER CHANGES] As a former I am just the chair not a speaker. Go ahead. [SPEAKER CHANGES] As a former legislator prior to get just another tool in top box. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Any further discussion on the bill. Representative Floyd. [SPEAKER CHANGES] At appropriate time Mr. Chair this is prior get some bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Well I had promise representative Carney that I would take I would allow her to make the motion a minute ago but I will take a second here. Representative Carney I have moved to your favorite report. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. Chairman. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Sorry. Hello. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Hey. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The Lady from Mecklenburg is recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. Chairman one last question I may have miss this earlier in the presentation, I notice that in the bill the description of the bill it defines who near relative is. What is the definition of personal representative? [SPEAKER CHANGES] You’re recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Executer or the administrator or the attorney of the state. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Ma'am any further comment, further discussion on the debate. Representative Carney moves for a favor report to house bill 460 further discussion debate. Seeing none so many favors the motion.

This bill that would save about $12,000 and 26,000 slipped into good step in the right direction and 7 to 7 weeks ago and I'm sure we'll take a person Pearson D, since you're just a quick question that they could tell us a great August Atty. Morrison December for them for each election year and someone said they can stay with me a second went off and the slenderness and you uninstall some confidence in the slam into a guy like a permit Wednesday literature safely at about the second when offered and decided that if the seats are just for more better start a year I would like sat down and actually the reality of this mess, said he and a more complicated than idea that he May 1 address the bank two of the German version Harris and I think the issue might be that if election cycles manager for results for instance and 2018 Congress shall be the highest thing on the balcony no statewide issues of all on the ballot however if there's an anticipated many highly contested primary for U.S. Senate or governor booth and counties might be more reluctant into the final out of five for the Clarence so we can put away enough to really know will watch, the contest and benefits if it's permanent we know that that there may be changing conditions 75 did not get into revoking and so are trying sort of like a short of a trial run under discussion for the second floor to a table as you know some of the only track events and the Warsaw this list of ?? (SPEAKER CHANGES)25% increase since a goal and set the fire marshal again this is a step in the right direction sure would set the motions to paintings were among 4:00 AM report two PCs owners to 6:48 AM report to the original productions as either the option ash and place in, say, Goldman said the senate bills have a word or major national psyche appreciated the avant Garde, and as hostile 734 short title of your side agreements to improve their roles, there is a PCs the person was plays a PCs 84 swept action is so awarded PCs of four as urgent else's readiness to explain the baking as chairman members of the committee of this is another one days we often started by retaking and other small step you might say that basically this deal I would authorize the state board of elections to enter into agreements with other states to cross check information and registration day records on publicly self explanatory bed is one more opportunity we have to make sure their payrolls or what they should be and that there's not been indicted in other states and a miss chairman of the let's take requests when I went to our next year or two before we take questions of any member seen a copy of the directionality the copy reads and studies got the rhythm, (SPEAKER CHANGES) just as raising start as a program of topics women as the winner of the past and Wallace, copies of the inactivity members have questions of the bill's sponsor the two character set a date by the service of the legislature?

Eastern North Carolina for ?? ….

removal and maintenance of the voter registration list. It is authorizing the State Board of Elections to share information with other states and to garner information from other states regarding the lists that they have of voter registration information and voter records, but it does not change the process used by our state for list maintenance. [SPEAKER CHANGES]Further questions of the bill's sponsor, Representative Michaux. The member is recognized to debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES]About prohibition in the NBRA of 90 days before any federal elections before you can even purge anybody under NBRA. It appears to me that you'll be in sort of conflict with the NBRA at this time. The state law also permits the County Board of Elections to remove registers. I guess my problem is, if you're going to start doing this in trying to follow and work with other states, maybe we ought to look at studying this situation before we get into it, because purging can be used in very evil ways in many instances as has been shown in the past, and I don't mind looking at this, and probably, maybe, some changes in that, but when we've got NBRA out there with the rules, and we've got our own state laws and I think that if we start moving and proving any thing on here, without any kind of study being done, I think we could be headed for trouble. [SPEAKER CHANGES]Representative Ross, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES]Just to ask the bill's sponsor, or maybe staff, a question. I depends on who can answer it. [SPEAKER CHANGES]The member is recognized for that. [SPEAKER CHANGES]So when I look at, I guess, lines 20 and 21, it says, Any data sharing agreement shall require the other state or states to comply with North Carolina law. Just wanted to remind the members what those 2 provisions are, and then to ask whether other states will be able to require us to comply their law. Is there a kind of reciprocity in how that's approached? [SPEAKER CHANGES]Do you want staff to take that, or do you want it, Representative? [SPEAKER CHANGES]I think I'll comment, and then maybe let staff follow up. I know that that addresses in instances, for instance, of identity theft. These are statutes that have to do with confidential information that you would not want to be shared like a social security number, but I'd be happy for staff to add to that. [SPEAKER CHANGES]Anyone want to comment back there? [SPEAKER CHANGES]Yes, sir. Both of those statutes are about pieces of information that are in the voter registration record such as your social security number, the last 4 digits, or your date of birth North Carolina law can obviously require the North Carolina State Board of Elections to behave in a certain way. We would not be able to require another state to behave that way, except under the contractually arrangement, their state, which every of the 49 that it is, would control what that state's behavior would be for their information in their contractual arrangement. Obviously, if a contractual arrangement didn't meet the requirements put on by the State Board of the General Assembly, then the state would not be able to enter into that agreement. [SPEAKER CHANGES]Further questions, further discussion, or further debate. [SPEAKER CHANGES]Mr. Chairman? [SPEAKER CHANGES]Representative Lewis is recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES]Yes sir. We're blessed to have a lot of new members. I wanted to announce that as Chair, that we received a letter which I have passed out to each of you. It is entitles the NAACP End Advancement Project. If you will not at the bottom of this form I wrote per request, and that was done, because whenever material is passed out someone's name has to be written there, and I was asked that this be put as a part of the record on this bill

That has been done but I did just want to state for those who maybe have never seen this before why it was done in this way. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate on the bill. Representative ?? you desired for a comment sir? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. Chairman, I just wanted to make a comment and thank representative Lewis for that explanation and members I received the letter the same did as you did. I have read the letter and respectfully, I simply disagree. And with that Mr. Chair, as a member I'd like to propose to make motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Chair I propose that we give a favorable report to propose committee substitute for house bill 734 unfavorable to the original bill. Representatives, you heard the motion. Further discussion or debate. Representative Michaux. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Call for the ?? has been made, the call sustained. Cause enough. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Alright. The question before the committee is the passage of the motion. Those members wishing to vote would vote Aye when your name is called. Those members wishing to vote would vote No when your name is called. The clerk will read the roll. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Burr? Jones? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Aye. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Aye. Avila, Aye. West, Aye. Brown, Aye. Brian. Conrad, Aye. Cotham, No. Cunningham. Davis,, Aye. Dixon, Aye. Faircloth, Aye. Fischer, No. Floyd, No. Ford, Aye. Fulghum, Aye. Graham, No. Hall, No. Hardister, Aye. Harrison, No. Iler? McManus, No. McNeil, Aye. Michaux, No. Mobley, No. Murry, Aye. Richardson, No. Riddell, Aye. Ross, No. Sane, Aye Schaffer, Aye. Speciale, Aye. Stam? Starnes, Aye. Terry, No. Lewis, Aye. Moore, Aye. [SPEAKER CHANGES] 20 having voted in the affirmative, 12 in the negative. The motion passes and is adopted and will be given a favorable report. Members, peers that desire to be ?? in the committee, is there anything that would go the committee? Saying none, we stand adjourned.
