We're adding the word substantial in one place to make it conform to some provisions in last year's regulatory reform bill.

[SPEAKER CHANGES] It should me… [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Jackson moves to amend the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Jackson is recognized to explain the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. President. Members this amendment has three provisions, the first provision is when the fertilizer is, pertaining to the fertilizer fees on page 2 lines 43 to 48, when the fertilizer fees first out as a recommendation out of the Agriculture and Forestry Study Awareness Committee, we were aware of language that the North Carolina League, Farm Bureau and the Department of Agriculture work it on and this amendment basically is the compromise and supported by all three of these groups. Provision number 2 which effects language on page 22 lines 9 through 16 I believe, 9 through 10 excuse me! This amendment clarifies that only reclassifications that have received the petition for rule making to the EMC by an effective government who wants to remove the new classification between January 1st, 2013 and 2014 are effected by this provision which simply offers a restate for all parties. And the third and final provision, this is clarification and makes a ___[01:30] to the Landscaping Contractor Section by removing the words, ‘All employees’ and the amendment will allow landscape contractors to employ independent contractors, they practice which is currently widely used and I would appreciate to support. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Stein what purpose you ask? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. President to see Senator Jackson, do you have any question? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Jackson, do you have…? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes, Sir. [SPEAKER CHANGES] And it’s truly because I have no understanding of what it does but I understood the first provision from your explanation, the second one having to do with the EMC and a stand still relates to things that happened during the year of 2013. And what does that have to do with and who are the relevant parties and they accord with this change? [SPEAKER CHANGES] As far as I know to my knowledge there are in accord with this Senator Stein but let me reach another statement if you don’t mind. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator you have… [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, nothing in this provision will disallows future petitions to the EMC and then to reestablish a watershed reclassification in the future if one or more governments reach an agreement to move forward with a new regional water supply plant. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator what purpose you ask? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Speak to the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator what did you have to speak for the amendment? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Stein I had a question about the second portion of Senator Jackson’s Amendment and in fact it does apply to one specific reclassification that the EMC ruled on last year and the parties involved or not in accord with this and do not favor the amendment. Since I have represented all of the governments involved, I have been in constant contact with them, they do not support this like they are not in accord with this and will be taking other action of should it pass? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Is there any further discussion or debate? Senator Jackson, what purpose you ask? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I don’t know I’m speaking second time from the rules but just quickly that to my knowledge that is the only county that’s… [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator, speak one time and the last time was your time to speak…Thank you.

[SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Jackson if this amendment passes these towns and counties can go back and renegotiate? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes, Mam to my knowledge that is the language. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Right, and make another agreement. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Follow up correct. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Senator Jackson. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Is there any further discussion or debate? Senator ___[04:34] what purpose you ask? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I ask Senator Jackson a question? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Jackson do you? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes, Sir. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Are you aware of the current status of the negotiations between the four governments involved with this? [SPEAKER CHANGES] No Sir, I’m not. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Okay. So, you are not aware of… [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator can I ask another question? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes, one more question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Jackson do you? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes, Sir I do. [SPEAKER CHANGES] So, you are not sure really if… [0:04:59.4] [End of file…]

[0:00:00.0] They would rather not have this provision and or rather just not go back and negotiated all.

It limits that. Actually, it says you can do it once in a two year period and not more than twice in a five year period and not more than three times in a 10 year period.

[SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brock moves to amend the bill [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brock is recognized to explain the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. President. Members of the senate, the first part of the amendment that you will see is that it's a clarifying issue about when things were published with state budget. State budget called me and asked if we just changed the wording it would allow for a better time issue as far as knowing which agencies have which money. That is clarifying. If you go to the second part of amendment which is pertaining to the closure of certain animal waste containment basins. Long and short of the story was that this was an old animal waste basin years ago and it was changed because the only thing that has been in it for years is water but it's under a constant regulation of what the old code was, the new code. I think we've got the clarifying language that the only thing that's been in this thing is rainwater or runoff from rainwater. This will get it to where we can remedy the situation in this issue. I urge your support of the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Do we have any discussion or debate? Hearing none. Question for the senate is the passage of amendment 15. All in favorable vote Aye, opposed no. 5 seconds will be allowed for the voting. Clerk will record the vote. 45 having voted affirmative and zero in the negative. Amendment 15 passes.

Members all this does is inserts the words "the omissions from" on page 30 line 8; inserting them in between regulate in any technical in nature and I ask for your support. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Do we have any discussion or debate? Hearing none. Question for the senate is the passage of amendment 16. All in favor vote aye.

House Bill 230. [SPEAKER CHANGES] No objections so ordered. Clerk will read House Bill 230. [SPEAKER CHANGES] House Bill 230 Clarify to Read to Achieve school performance grades. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Is there any discussion or debate? Senator Berger to what purpose your ayes. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Speak on the bill [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Berger has the floor to speak to the bill [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. President. Members of the Senate. For those of you who were in either Education or Finance, you've heard the details on this bill. Basically it is a bill to try to address some of the concerns that have been brought forward by parents, by LEAs, by teachers and others in connection with Read to Achieve law that is currently in affect.

[0:00:00.0] The provisions are largely uncontroversial and the reason we are bringing it forward today is because one of the provisions has to do with modifying the summer reading camps to give some flexibility to LEAS and we would like to get that provision passed over to the house as soon as possible so that hopefully they will act on it and the LEAS would have the authority to make those changes. I will be more happy to answer any questions but basically it makes some changes to the portfolio provision, we had a good amendment from Senator Stein and the Education Committee that provides some instruction or at least some language for DPI as far as combining some of the parts of the portfolio. So, I would urge to support for the bill and I will happy to answer any questions. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Stein what purpose you had and have some for amendment. Senator Stein forwards your amendment locally. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Stein moves to amendment bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Stein is recognized to speak to the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. President. Senator Burger was very helpful in committee and accepted one amendment and there was another one that I wanna to bring forward to the whole body for your consideration and it has to deal with this notion of the student portfolio, the reading portfolio. Basically, we want other kid to be able to read by the end of third grade and if they pass the test at the end of the year or you have demonstrated over the course of the year that you can read so that if you are not comfortable with the high stakes test and you do poorly but you are showing that you can read you still get to advance. The third is that each LEAs allow to come up with different assessments alternative to the high stakes for single end of the year test. And there were some changes made on the LEA assessments and this amendment deals with that other option the student reading portfolio. If you like me and have constituents who have children in third grade I expect you have heard about these 36 assessments in third grade and that 36 assessments comes from this reading portfolio. Basically, what the law says is that folks you have to show kids, you have to show if they have met the standard, master of the standard the level of 70% or more three different times for 12 different standards that’s the 36. The folks from Charlotte, the McCallum Berg Superintendent said that his third grade teachers were spending 30% of their class time the second semester of school this year doing nothing other than assessments meaning that the teachers weren’t teaching and the kids weren’t learning, they were just going through assessment after assessment and we have heard time and time again there are too many tests on our kids, too many tests on our kids and number of those tests are beyond our control, the Federal required these 36 tests are creature of us, we created it, it’s in we do achieve. So, we have the power to down that back a little bit, we did that in committee with one amendment that allows certain assessments to measure more than one standard. So, there are 12 standards if a certain assessment deals with two or three, no two standards and you pass it, it actually will count for that so gets this down from 36 to maybe 32 or 33 that’s a step in the right direction. All my amendment does is say that instead of three benchmarks, three examples you need two examples, that gives us from 36 tests to 24 tests and potentially a little more if some of those tests are deal with more than one standard. So, if you have parents who are unhappy with you for having 36 tests on their third grade kids here is an opportunity for you to take a third of those tests off the table. Thereby, giving our teachers more time for their kids to teach and students more time to learn. I put this for your consideration and hope you will support it. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Burger what purpose you ask? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Speaks for the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Burger is speaks to the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Members and Senators I can’t support the amendment the reason primarily is DPI currently has the authority to further combine the benchmarks beyond what we have already done with Senator Stein earlier amendment, the research, the academic research tells us that having at least three data points is necessary in order to have some certainty as to the validity of the results I would encourage you to vote against the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Any further discussion or debate, the question for the Senate is the passage of amendment all in favor vote aye. All opposed vote no. Five seconds we have allowed for the voting… [0:04:59.8] [End of file…]
