The Senate is back in session. Members, we have a supplemental calendar. Hopefully you’ve got it on your desk. Senator Apodaca, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President, send forth a conference report. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Send forward your report. Clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Conference Report, House Bill 1145. Mr. President of the Senate, Speaker of the House Representative . Conferees appointed to resolve the difference between the Senate and the House of Representatives on the House Bill 1145 The bill will be entitled an act to require mopeds to be registered with the Division of Motor Vehicles. And if operators of mopeds to have in full force and effect a policy of financial responsibility. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Calendar. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Apodaca, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Motion relative to today supplemental calendar. [SPEAKER CHANGES] You have the floor. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. President. Conference report for adoption Senate Bill 163, I ask that it be removed from today’s calendar and placed on tomorrows. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Without objection, so ordered. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President, House Bill 761, regulatory reform act, I ask that it be placed on the end of the supplemental calendar please. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Without objection, so ordered. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President, I move that the rules be suspended to the end that all messages send tot eh Governor and to the House will be by special messenger [SPEAKER CHANGES] Without objection, so ordered. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. President. Mr. President, I think that’ll do it for now [SPEAKER CHANGES] I got a feeling he’ll be back. House Bill 884 the clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] House Bill 884. Dropout prevention recovery pilot charter school. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Tillman’s recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President this is a charter school that has met all the application criteria, has been approved and they simply need approval for us to allow them to get started. What it will do is take dropouts, ?? kids that are a couple of years behind that are in the high schools now or those who may have recently dropped out and give them a program to catch them back up so that they will become high school graduates, it will improve the dropout rate . In Florida 83% of those ids went onto a two year technical program or a 4 year program. We have about 25% of those kids doing that. Some in Mecklenburg schools wanted this and it was sort of initiated with their delegation about 2 years ago . I do have an amendment, Mr. President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Send forward your amendment. 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. This amendment simply allows one change in the ordinary rules and operations. Every charter school gets the additional funding for their projected students. That will happen in this case. But by trying to get these dropouts and back in the program it will take a little longer to get them up to full speed. Which means that we will ask for a second look in the 5th month rather than the 2nd month. The 2nd month is true for the public schools, if they miss the projection they send the check back. If this charter school misses its projection by the 5th money than they will send the money back if they are funded for more than ?? they have. And that’s basically what it does I ask for your support on the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion or debate on the amendment? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator McLaurin? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I just want to commend Senator Tillman for this effort tot bring this forward and I have a auestion for him later but we’ll move forward on this amendment and I”ll ask that question after the amendment [SPEAKER CHANGES] Is there further discussion on the amendment? Before we take that vote, Senators Parmon, Newton and Meredith are granted leaves of absences, excused absences for the remainder of today’s session. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Stein, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] To see if Senator Tillman will yield to a question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Tillman, do you yield? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes sir, by all means [SPEAKER CHANGES] He yields. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I just want to make sure I understand the amendment. So the current Section 5.

It’s quite long about 15,20 lines and you are replacing with a proposed amendment which is 3 lines. What are we giving up in the language that’s been there. [Speaker Changes] Basically what we are giving up is all of the verbiage about second month versus the first month. We may do a 20 day report a true up report every second month. This simply gets rid of all of that and allows us to do the true up from the fifth month for this [??] [[Speaker Changes] Further discussion or debate. Hearing none the question before the senate is passage of the amendment 1 for house bill 884 . All in favor would vote Aye. All oppose vote No. 5 seconds will be allowed for recording. Clerk will record them vote. 46 having voted in the affirmative and 9 in the negative. Amendment 1 passes and the bill is back before you. Further discussion and debate o house bill 884. Senator McLaren what purpose you rise? [Speaker Changes] Thank you Mr President. Speak on the bill and offer an amendment [Speaker Changes] Send forward your amendment and the clerk will read [Speaker Changes] Thank you very much I think its on the dashboard in the process again. Placed [Speaker Changes] Senator McLaren moves to amend the bill [Speaker Changes] Senator McLaren has the floor to explain the amendment [Speaker Changes] Thank you Mr. President. Last week we had conference committee report on the charter school bill and I asked a question about transparency and openness of salaries and Senator Tillman certainly gave me a explanation which I appreciate. But actually have some further questions related to that procedure in that conference committee report and after some further I just feel that the amendment that I am presenting addresses the concerns that I have as well as many other folks have about full disclosure of charter school employees who are paid with public funds. And I stress paid with public funds. We all know how hard people work to pay their taxes and we owe it to them and I know all of us agree to show them where their tax dollars are being spent. All salaries paid with public funds in my view are to be known by our tax payers. As long as there are school personnel whether they are in traditional public school or charter school being paid for by public funds, we owe it to these citizens tax payers of our state to fully disclose the salaries that are funded by the tax payer dollars. This simply makes it clear that I will be transparent and open and I commend this amendment to you. Thank you [Speaker Changes] Further discussion or debate on amendment 2. [Speaker Changes] Mr. President [Speaker Changes] Senator Soucek, what purpose do you rise? [Speaker Changes] Just to see whether Senator McLaren will yield for a question [Speaker Changes] Senator McLaren, Do you yield? [Speaker Changes] I certainly yield [Speaker Changes] Thank you president. Just to my understanding, is this a issue that we have debated in the previous charter bill or is it directly responsible for one specific pilot program in [??] Is this something that affects the entire charter school population? [Speaker Changes] Yes That’s Correct [Speaker Changes] Thank you [Speaker Changes] Further discussion or debate. Senator Tillman what purpose do you rise? [Speaker Changes] Mr. President. That amendment has nothing to do with the bill. He wants to talk about the general charter school bill you missed your opportunity. We have many agencies in this state that operate with public money. And none of them that had contract with private organizations as far as I know have to reveal that those management employees. And if a management company owns a charter school every employee employed by the charter school salaries revealed just like the public school. But the higher level positions are not [??] apply to this bill as far as I can see in this charter application [Speaker Changes] Mr President [Speaker Changes] Senator Stein what purpose do you rise? [Speaker Changes] To debate the amendment [Speaker Changes] To debate the amendment [Speaker Changes] I fund what senator Tillman just said to be frankly incredible. I don’t know a single contract in which the amount of that contract is not [??]. Any time the state any agency enters in to a contract.

It is public. That’s the default rule. There may be instances where for competitive reasons I think there are a couple of instances in hospitals where the terms of the contract may not be public but the amount of the contract is always public. We owe that to the tax payers. But for some reasons a charter school is allowed to employ a principal an administrator under a management services contract and for some reasons people don’t have the rights to know how much the people are paying that person. It’s unprecedented shielding of the public of the information they have the right to know. I encourage you to spare this moment [Speaker Changes] Further discussion or debate. Senator Brisson. What purpose do you rise? [Speaker Changes] Motion please. We move that this house bill 884 to be displaced on the end of the day calendar. [Speaker Changes] Objection so ordered [Speaker Changes] Senate bill 883 clerk will read [Speaker Changes] Senate bill 883 Mitigation buffer roads waste water treatment [Speaker Changes] Senator Brock is recognized. [Speaker Changes] Thank you Mr. President. Ladies and gentlemen of the senate. The house made one change to the bill that we had sent over. If you look at the bill, section 3 is using [??] for infiltration and waste water disposal which we simply cannot do. But this should help processing of some the waste water. I urge your support as it was a agreed change by the house [Speaker Changes] Further discussion or debate on the motion to concur on the house committee substitute senate bill 883. [Speaker Changes] Mr President [Speaker Changes] Senator McKissick what purpose do you rise? [Speaker Changes] can I ask Senator Brock a question? [Speaker Changes] Senator Brock do you yield? [Speaker Changes] Yes sir [Speaker Changes] he yield [Speaker Changes] Senator Brock do you just review the most significant portions of the bill to start with. Just to refresh my recollection. [Speaker Changes] What is is it a follow up that you are asking a question follow up from what the house changes or from what we voted in the beginning. [Speaker Changes] Please state your Question Senator McKissick. [Speaker Changes]I was interested in knowing what we voted on from the very beginning to refresh my recollection since it is popping up on the dash chance to go back and remember the details of the original bill and then if you review once again. Again I know you guts highlighted the significant revision. But jus t to let us know what has changes from the original bill. Most importantly what was in the original bill to start with [Speaker Changes] Thank you Senator McKissick. What happened is Deaner requested the bill at the last moment right before the bill drafting because the rules were if we had contentious issues on the rules and the deaner has gone back with the stakeholders to go back and rewrite the disapproved original rules and rewrite the rules. And this would also allow to ensure temporarily so that no projects are lost in that time because if we did not have this thing we might lose a couple of projects. And the next part was the going back to the waste water using [??] just what was said in the house which is something that we can’t guaranteely do in the state but is a good add. By then. [Speaker Changes] Follow up Mr. President [Speaker Changes] Senator Brock, do you yield for a follow up? [Speaker Changes] Yes sir [Speaker Changes] He yields [Speaker Changes] Senator Brock you are indicating that all the interested stake holders , environmentalists as well as the deaner all on board with what we have now. [Speaker Changes] I won’t say everybody is on board and literally do we have everybody on board. They have some issues. We did have some people who want to shut off the [??] all together. They are not happy with this bill. But as we try to grow the economy and grow jobs here in North Carolina we would like to see this bill through make sure people have money invested in projects doesn’t carry through and continue on the process of creating jobs in North Carolina. Thank you [Speaker Changes] Further discussion or debate. Hearing none, the question before the senate motion to concur on the house committee substitute senate bill 883. All in favor would vote aye all oppose would vote no. Sponsor asked that you vote aye. 5 seconds will be allotted for voting. Clerk will record the vote. Senator Davis.

[SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Apodaca, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Motion please. [SPEAKER CHANGES] State your motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President, I move that the Senate do hereby recess. Let’s try coming back about 5:30. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Motion is that the Senate stand in recess until 5:30, all in favor. Hold on, Senator Brown. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] For what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Republicans will caucus during the recess. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Blue, for what purpose do you rise. [SPEAKER CHANGES] An inquiry of the Chair, Mr. President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] State your inquiry. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I’m wondering, basically listening to the rumors I understand that we’re supposed to get a budget bill, and I’m trying to determine how to set caucus meetings anticipating when that might happen. And so I’m wondering whether you could enlighten us to some degree on that. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Blue would you direct that question to Senator Brown, please? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I’d be happy to. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brown is recognized to respond to the question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Blue I thought you were. I think the budget bill will be printed and hopefully be ready sometime late tonight. I think it will probably go online somewhere between 10:00 tonight and 12:00 tonight and I would think you would have your hardcopy sometime tomorrow morning. [SPEAKER CHANGES] One, follow up, Mr. President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] He yields. [SPEAKER CHANGES] And maybe you will have me direct this one to the President. Do you anticipate whether we plan to act on the budget bill tomorrow? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I think that is the plan. I’ll let Rules Chair determine that. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Apodaca is recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. President. Senator Blue, our intent is to vote one late tomorrow afternoon and then come back Friday is that the day after tomorrow, I’m lost. Is today Wednesday? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes sir. [SPEAKER CHANGES] And come back Friday and do the third vote on it. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Ok, Democrats. For an announcement. [SPEAKER CHANGES] ?? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Democrats will caucus during the recess. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Motion is that the Senate stand in recess until   [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President, let me amend that motion to the conditions in which we recessed this morning also. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Subject to the conditions stated in the previous motion earlier in the day All in favor say aye. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Aye. [SPEAKER CHANGES] All oppose, no. The ayes have it. Senate stands in recess. All here. Senate will come back to order. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Apodaca, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] May I make a few motions, please. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes, go ahead. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. President. Mr. President, members, Senate Bill 403 was sent over election law clarifications from the House, they made some changes on it. I’m going to move that we send that to the Rules Committee for a little review and discussion tomorrow morning. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Without objection, so ordered. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. President. Also, Mr. President, during the break the Ways and Means Committee had a quick meeting and we decided to send Senate Bill 734 regulatory reform act 2014, move it out of ways and means and send it to the Rules Committee please. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Without objection, so ordered. [SPEAKER CHANGES] You know what, Mr. resident, let me change that motion. I want to bring Senate Bill 734 regulatory act of2014 to the floor for concurrence [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senate Bill 734 from Ways and Mmeans to the floor, is the motion. Is that correct. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes sir. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Without objection. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Blue, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] For concurrence this evening or concurrence some other time? [SPEAKER CHANGES] We’re not going to concur on it so if we could do that this evening. Thank you Senator. We’ll make it brief and painless. [SPEAKER CHANGES] So ordered. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President, also while we’re doing some burials and clean ups, how about senate Bill 761 is that what we were, excuse me House Bill 761 was on the supplemental calendar. Motion that it be removed and sent to the Committee on Rules. [SPEAKER CHANGES] House Bill 761 which is the first bill on the supplemental calendar. Motion is to remove it from the calendar and re-refer it to Rules.

Without objection, so ordered. [SPEAKER CHANGES] And I guess that will bring us back to 884. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Embers I believe we’re on House bill 884, amendment 2 madam clerk? Amendment 2 if we could bring that back up. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Apodaca, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Send forth substitute an amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Send forward your amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Apodaca moves to amend the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Apodaca is recognized to explain the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. President. Members, Senator McLaurin you brought up a good topic and I think it deserves a lot more study. So what this amendment will do, will mandate that the state board of education and charter Schools Advisory Board shall jointly report to the General Assembly by December 15th on the utilization of contracts for personal services by local boards of education and charter school boards of directors. Courts show include purposes and the extent of such contracts prevalent that the administrative district and charter schools statewide. I ask for your support. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion or debate on amendment 3? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Stein, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] To debate the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] You have the floor. [SPEAKER CHANGES] This amendment does what we all know it all does, which is to essentially kill Senator McLaurin’s very good amendment that I don’t think we need to study. If you’ve got a principal working at that school, we should know what that salary is. If you’ve got an assistant principal working at that school, we should know what that salary is. We shouldn’t know, the people should know, the people are the ones paying that contract. This is a better way to avoid answering a question to which we already know the right answer and that is to allow the people to know how their money’s being spent. in all public schools in North Carolina, including charter schools. I’m going to be voting against this amendment not because I have a problem with it particularly but because I have a problem with its effect. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion or debate. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President to speak on the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Tillman’s recognized to speak on the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Stein’s misinformed and a lot of times he’s right on target. But he told you all in an earlier speech today that it was incredulous that you could have management companies that would have public money and not reveal everybody and everything. He doesn’t know this but I think maybe I told him, LEA’s sends management companies all the time to do outside contractual work. They don’t reveal those salaries. Now Senator Stein wants to vote against this amendment which will give us a good look at all of them, all the public and the public charter schools. What the contracts do, what ought to be revealed, what ought not to be revealed. And we’ll do a thorough job and we’ll include the public schools with this and I think that would be something you ought to be able to vote for. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion or debate on amendment 3? Hearing none, question before the Senate is the passage of Amendment 3 to House Bill 884. All in favor will vote aye, all oppose the vote no. 5 seconds will be allowed for the voting, clerk will record the vote. Jenkins Members, I neglected to indicate that senator Jenkins have requested and with your permission is granted an excused absence for the remainder o the session. 30 having voted in the affirmative and 15 in the negatvie. Amendment 3 passes And the bill is back before you. Any further discussion or debate on House Bill 844. Senator Ford, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President, see if the bill sponsor will yield to a question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Tillman, do you yield? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes, Mr. President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] He yields. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. President. Senator Tillman can you explain to us in your special way what Section 5 will do to Charlotte Mecklenburg schools as it relates for the allotment of pavement for this particular charter school? [SPEAKER CHANGES] MR. President, Mr. President I’d like to respond Senator Ford, that is not only a good question that’s a great question. Your superintendent Prior was all for this bill. Your current superintendent, Dr. Morrison, loves the concept of this and endorses it. Because we’re taking dropouts and potential dropouts that they have trouble with anyway and their dropout rate is so high that they’re only saving about 35% of the kids from dropping out and this new charter.

who has an 83% success and those gone on to a two or four year or technical college. That’s great results. The question is, what about the funding. There’s a lot of people confused about this funding and the best way to explain it would not be Harvard Law terms. It’ll be the sawmill version. Charlotte Meck will start the year and at the end of the 20 day report, they will send in, they will get a projected number to start with and we’ll give them all that funding. At the end of the second month, if they’re not there and they miss their projection by more than 1% they’ll send that money back as always. In a new charter startup, they’ll project their number and the will project 224, they’ll get funded for all of that. Charlotte Meck gets all of theirs. Year one, nobody loses a dime and I want the superintendent over there to know he loses nothing. If the second year, when he doesn’t have those students, he doesn’t need the ADM, wouldn’t get it anyway if they go on or dropped out, the charter school will get it based on their head count in year two. Now, in year two, if some of those kids went to this charter school, yes they would lack the funding for those because they don't’ have them. They lose nothing. The only thing that anyone is concerned about is the fifth months ?? which we’ve allowed for this school because these kids have dropped out. You’ve got to find them and get them in and you won’t have them all in the first month. Therefore, we got to make some allowance when these kids get there, probably by Christmas, second semester. There’s a fifth month ?? that will cost them nothing in year one. They’re worried about that. There could be some negativity in the second year when they don’t have the money for the kids that had gone. They lose nothing. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion or debate. Hearing none, the question before the Senate is the passage of the Senate Committee Substitute to House Bill 884 on its second reading. All in favor vote aye, all opposed vote no. Five seconds will be allowed for the voting. The clerk will record the vote. 45 having voted in the affirmative and none in the negative, House Bill 884 has passed its second reading and will, without objection, will be read a third time. [SPEAKER CHANGES] North Carolina General Assembly enacts. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion or debate. Hearing none, the question before the Senate is the passage the Senate Committee Substitute to House Bill 884 on its third reading. All in favor say aye. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Aye. [SPEAKER CHANGES] All opposed say no. The ayes have it. House Bill 884 has passed its third reading and the amendment will be engrossed and the bill will be sent to the House on the issue of concurrence in the Senate Committee Substitute. Senate Bill 734. The clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senate Bill 734. Regulatory Reform Act of 2014. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Apodaca is recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. President. Members, here we go again. We sent something over to the House they sent it back to us. I have no idea what it is. It doesn’t resemble anything we sent over. With that said, Senator Blue, I hope we can vote not to concur. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion or debate on the motion to concur. Hearing none, the question before the Senate is the passage of a motion to concur in the House Committee Substitute to Senate Bill 734. All in favor vote aye, all opposed to concurrence will vote no. The sponsor asks that you vote no. Five seconds will be allowed for the voting. The clerk will record the vote. None having voted in the affirmative and 45 in the negative, the motion to concur fails and the House will be so notified. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Apodaca, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] If we could, I move that we send Senate Bill 734 to the committee on Rules, please. We just voted not to concur. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Without objection, so ordered. Members, I believe that takes care of all the bills that we have on the calendar. Notices and announcements? Senator Bingham, for what purpose do you rise? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Point of personal privilege, Mr. President. [SPEAKER CHANGES] This ought to be good. You have the floor.
