This is House Bill 652, Representative Blackwell is this your bill? Gentleman from Burke, Representative Blackwell is recognized to debate the bill, the House will come to order. Thank you Mr. Speaker. Legislation of this particular assault[sp?] has now been enacted in 13

other states, it's my understanding in that in just about more than 12 of those states that almost unanimous support was obtained, it was clearly by Partisan legislation. The 13th state the legislation was actually adopted by referendum in Arizona where it passed with 80% of the popular vote. This legislation is designed to try to offer some final hope to patients who've been identified as having a terminal illness and maybe exhausted all the other treatment options. This legislation is as I said is designed to try to enable them to have one last chance. There are protections built into the bill in the sense that there's a consent requirement from the patient which is to document that a fully exchange of information has been made with the position about options or consiquences and the doctor has to agree. There's no obligation on the part of the manufacturers of these investigational drugs to provide it, but this would allow them to do so and would offer some protection from potential liability claims in the event that things don't work out as they should. It's not a protection against medical malpractice claims but it does protect them to a degree. This and all we're talking about investigational products, drugs, biologics devices they've already passed the basics safety testing which is phase one under the FDA, you got that. provision you've got the informed consent, and then there are protections from liabilities also for position if they investigational product doesn't work. I'll be glad to try to answer any questions. For what purpose does the gentleman from Lee, Representative Reed rise? To debate the Bill. The gentleman has the floor to debate the Bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker, and I'll just say that this is something I work with Representative Black will always send a lot of work, and a lot of discussions. I think some of the issues that I have heard from healthcare providers that they'll have with the Bill have been alleviated especially one of the issues regarding insurance coverage or anything of that sort being imposed upon insurance company. So, we know of no opposition to the Bill. It's been out there a long time. We just ask for your support. Further discussion, further debate, if not the question for the house is the passage for house Bill 652 on it's second ring? Those in favor will vote those opposed will vote, no. The court will open the vote. Representative Blackwell, does the gentleman wish to vote on his own Bill? Cock will lock the machine that recorded the vote. 118 having voted the affirmative, and none in the negative, house Bill 652 passes its second reading, and will without any objection, be read a third time. Johnson [xx]. Further discussion, further debate. If not the question before the house is the passage of House Bill 652 in its third reading. Those in favor will say, aye. Those opposed will say, no. The ayes have it. House Bill 652 passes its third reading. We'll send it to the Senate. Members the next bill we are going to take up is House bill 878, short title is expand boarder trustee school science and math. We have a number of guests here so House Bill 878, the clerk will read. Representative Jordan, Blackwell, house bill 878 a bill to be entitled an act to expand the membership of board of trustees is not Carolina School of Science and Mathematics. General Assembly of North North Carolina enact. For what purpose does the gentleman from Ash representative Jordan arise? To debate the bill. The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker. Members this bill does two things. It adds this student body present at the school of North Carolina Science and Math to the board of trustees as an ex-official non-voting member, and also gives the board of trustees additional two no voting spots to fill with membership particular talent and interests. The School of Science and Math, if you are not aware, is one of the 17 campuses of the University of North Carolina system. It is the only one that is not college ages or seniors and juniors in high school, which is one reason we want to make them a non-voting member at this point, make changes later on. We'll be moving the board, I

know it's a large board from 27-30, but it is. There were 13 members on there appointed, one from each congressional district. It does cover the entire state very specifically. The students who are here, some of them have been working on this bill for a year, two years, and in the House Education Committee, K12, we had the current student body present speak to the committee on this bill, I would ask for your support for this and stand ready for any question that you may have. Further discussion, further debate, if not the question before the House is the passage of House Bill 878 on its second reading. Those in favor will vote Aye, those opposed will vote No. The clerk will open the vote. the clerk will. Representative Bell does the gentleman wish to record? It didn't take. The clerk will lock the machine and record the vote 118 having voted in the affirmative and non in the negative, house bill 878 passes its second reading and wil lor without objection be read the third reading. Johnson of Knocklan you're next. Further discussion further debate, if not the question for the house is the passage of house 878 on its third reading. Those in favor will say I, those opposing will say no, the I's have it. House bill 878 passes it's third reading, will be sent to the senate. House Bill 150, short title is [xx] Skin Cancer Prevention Act, chair directs that the bill be removed from the committee and [xx] for calendar, some new calendar and ten the chair is intending there the bill tot today's calendar objection to the bill being added to today's calendar hearing none so ordered. House bill 222 the clerk will read. Representatives Brian, Dolson and Stevens, house bill 222 availed to the entire Knocklan voted to elect and then to retain just Supreme Court and Judges of the Court of Appeal for elections. Jameson  of Kocklan you're next. The gentleman from Mecklenburg Representative Brian is recognized to debate the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker as a title says, this is a bill to provide for retention elections for justices and judges at appellate level, that will be for all of our Supreme court, justices, and the court of appeal judges. Just to be clear, so that everyone understands to provide for a retention election for a sitting judge. If a judge has not been ever  elected, there will be a normal election process as we've always had. This is just for a sitting judge at the appellate level. The bill sponsored with me by Representative Stevens and Doughtry  as supported by the bar association and passed unanimously through J1. I'm glad to take any questions. What purpose does Representative Martin of Lake rise? To debate the bill. You are recognized to debate the bill. Thanks very much Mr. Speaker. Members this is a good bill. I was pleased to support it in J1, and I'm pleased to support it now. I think we all agree that there's improvements to made in the way that we elect judges. This isn't the complete solution, but it is a good step forward. I do think we need to make some changes on the way the rofe money in judicial elections and Mr. Speaker I'd like to be recognized to send forth an amendment. Representative Martin the Chair is of the opinion that the amendment is not in order. Representative Speciale is recognized. I'd like to see if the bill sponsor would answer a question. Does Representative Brian Yield? Me glad to. Could you please take a couple moments since I wasn't on the committee and some of us were'nt and explain exactly how this is going to work. Sure sometimes it's easier for me to answer an express question but just to be clear we have sitting justices in court of appeals members judges right now, and so for those folks that are actually have been elected all of them have been duly elected in a race at the next, at the end of thier term they would be subject to a retention election, and I think you'll see if you look at the actual bill there's some language that shows how or would show up on the ballot it would just be an approval basically do you want to retain Judge Smith as supreme court justice.

So it would be a yes or no to retain that person so it would and if the person is not retained, if the majority of the public votes not to retain that judge, the governer will then appoint a replacement until the next election of the general assembly at which time there'll be a normal election process for the judge. So a normal 2% election after that is that helpful? Representative speak on the bill please. Do you yield again representative Brian? Speak on the bill. You're recognized to speak on the bill representing specialty. I don't like this. When we have an election, we elect Who we want in office. What this is, is telling everybody who the current judge is, and then leaving it up to the governor. If we don't like this guy then we get a lady. Then the governor appoints it. That doesn't make sense to me. I don't understand why would we even consider something like this, and I hope everybody says no. We want to be able to pick and choose our judges, let's not buy of something like this please. Further discussion or debate? Representative Brian. Yeah, I just want to clarify that, although the governor would make the initial appointment there's a regular election for that judge. It's just an appointment if the voters say no the judge appoints just for a limited period of time not for a whole term and then there's a normal election process. Further discussion or debate? Representative Speciality to speak the second time. Well, the judge may appoint them. I mean governor may have planned but now he is the incumbent. That's not the way it's supposed to work. It's easier to run as an incumbent. We need to pick our judges. There's nothing wrong with the system that we have. Please vote this thing down. Rep. Avila is recognized. To ask the bill sponsor a question please? Does he yield? Glad to. He yields. Would not the judge failing to retain his seat be equivalent to being kicked out by the public if he ran against somebody for re-election? I think so. Therefore I personally don't see any reason we need to go through this convoluted method, and I agree with comments if I may. Rep. Avila is recognized to debate the bill. There are ways to begin to control whatever feel like is wrong with elections but taking the power away from the voters to make that decision is not the way to go and I don't see this convoluted complex way of appointing and electing being the answer to creating the solutions, I can't help but see more problems and I plan to vote against the bill, and I will ask that you do as well. Further discussion or debate, if not, the question before the house is the passage of House bill 222 on its second reading the clerk will open the vote those in favor will vote I, those opposed will vote no, the clerk will open the vote. The clerk will lock the machine and record the vote, the ayes are 63 the Nos are 54, the bill has passed its second reading and will without objection be read a third time. General Assembly of North Carolina annex. Further discussion or debate? If not those in favor will say Aye. Aye. Those opposed will say no. No. The chair cannot tell we'll vote by recording machine again, those in favor will vote Aye, those opposed will vote no, the Clerk will open machine. The clerk will lock the machine and record the vote.  The Ayes are 60 the nos' are 57 the bill has passed its third reading and will be sent to The Senate. House bill 884, the Clerk will read. Representative Brian.  House bill 884 We can have order please. On Motion of Speaker Tim Moor, the chair will like to recognize three people at this point. Shadrack Randolph, former Basketball player, finished 8th in the season with 8th seasons

And Chase Blackburn two times Super Bowl champion with New York Giants, played last two seasons with the Carolina Panthers you're next. The clerk will read House Bill 884. Representative B. Brown House Bill 884 a bill to be entitled on act to reinstate the set off debt collection procedures, the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, clinical programs in UNC healthcare system. [xx] of North Carolina you're next. After the next. Representative Brown of Pitt is recognized. To debate the bill. Members here we are again for those of you who were here last session I am going to try to see how many times I can say debts offs, Debts Collection Act here in the General Assembly. As you might recall last session we went to the battle field to try to retain UNC health system's ability to continue on with this set the debts that are off collection act, that every other department in state government is to be able to utilize, unfortunately that ability was taken away from the UNC health system last long session. We restored a portion of that in the short session but it's a reason not enough, actually as of last year 2014 UCU, for instance, was unable to collect any of this past few debts we're about a $6.2 million loss to Verde[sp?] School of Medicine which to be able to continue to fulfill their mission this is a critical funding source for them to be able to collect debt that is owed to them that is State dollars. And the way they do that is to be able to collect proceeds from lottery winnings or tax recharge. This body is voted unanimously on this bill probably six times. I'm asking  you to do that again, let's send it back over to the Senate and see if we can get them to take some action on it. Further discussion and debate. If not the question before the house is the passage of house bill 884 on a separate reading, those in favor will vote aye those oppose will vote no the court will unlock the vote The court will lock the machine and record the vote. The Ayes are 112 the Nos are one, the bill is passed in second reading and in will without objection. To be read a third time. [xx] annex. Further discussion or debate Representative Insko.

If not the question for the House is the passage of House Bill 884 on it's third reading. Those in favor will say aye, Aye! Those oppose will say no. The ayes have it. The bill is passed as third reading and it'll be and to the Senate. Representative Dickson for what purpose do you rise? For Representative statement. You're recognized for that purpose.

One adult oyster, they put people back to work allowing a working waterman who maybe have lost fishing opportunities to get back to work. They are a renewable food source, they provide a habitat for over 24, 500 species, and they also taste good. Yet we have let our oyster production to reduced to less than 10%. This bill would establish a road map for identifying obstacles and opportunities, protect the investment by increasing civil penalties so we are not taking oysters from beds that were establishing for the water quality and also for our oyster fisheries, make the Gene Preston Marine Fishery Shellfish Sanctuary more efficient. It also adjusts the core sound proposal, which would just be a plan to take a look at for as to enact later to open up those waters of oyster fishering, establishes the Joint Oversight Commission on Seafood and Aquaculture, so we're not blindsided by any more fishing issues here in the legislature and it also removes some regulations for wet land restoration. I ask for your support. Rep. Lewis is recognized to debate the bill. I'd like to ask the gentleman a question. Does the gentleman yield? I do. [xx] what was the name of that sanctuary again real fast? I can't tell you real fast, but I can tell you real slow. It is the Jean Preston marine shell fish ean Preston sanctuary.

House bill 553 the clerk will read. Representatives McGrady, Whitmire, Langdon, and Dixon house bill 553 a bill to be entitled active major authorities where citizen counter to adopt [xx] regarding animals. Johnson from Knocklan you're next. Is representative McGrady seeking recognition? You are so to explain the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker I'm [xx] come to the table here. This is a bill that is intended to actually address an issue that came up in Brecon[sp?] county. Specifically in Brecon[sp?] county put in place, the organs that are tempted to establish that sort of standard care for livestock my belief is that the standard of chair for livestock including horses, really needs to be at stake wise standard and not something that will potentially end up having the standard of chair set by different ordinances in different places across the state, and so that's really what this bill is about. Now having said that, I was a former county commissioner and I know very well that local governments need to have the the ability to address animal issues including livestock. If cows or horses or any livestock are being mistreated, not fed, this are things that as a local government official you got to deal with and you got to use your police powers and so what we are trying to do here is grasps a middle ground I don't want to preempt the ability of local governments at all to deal with legitimate issues related to animals in a public safety and health but on the other hand I really don't want a spade of different audiences across the state

so that we are got one sort of vetting standard for horses in Herderson county and another sort of vetting standard for horses in Orange county, those things ought to be set by the department of agriculture and that's what my bill will do, urge you support for the bill Is there any further discussion or debate? Representative Ambrose recognized I would like to ask the bill sponsor a question Does he yield? I yield He yields Does this include not being unable to control any type of care and feeding of the chickens on somebody's backyard is so popular nowadays well we actually discussed a little bit about that in the committee today. This does not affect the zoning laws and so if you're not able to have chickens in some sort of residential neighborhood, this Bill doesn't affect it anyway, one way or the other I'm not sure I want to get into that debate, either with you or with anybody else Representative [xx] Thank you Further discussion or debate? If not the question of the house is the passage of house bill 553 on it's second reading, all those in favor will vote aye, those opposed will vote no, the clerk will open the vote The court will open record the votes. The ayes are 108, the nos are eight. The Bill is passed at second reading and will with that objection be read the third time. General Assembly Knocklan you're next. Further discussion or debate if not the question before the house is passage of house bill 553 on it's third reading those in favor will say aye, those opposed will say no. The aye's have it, the bill is passed it's third reading will be sent to the senate. House bill 474 the clerk will read. Representative Dobson, Whitmire, Hardister, and B. Turner house bill 474 the bill to be entitled to include types of programs that do not constitute the provision of childcare track Out programs for children who are 10 year around school and to establish a healthy out of school term recognition program. General assembly of Knocklan you're next. Representative Dobson is to explain the bill. Thank you Mr Speaker, thank you members for allowing this bill be heard today for not objecting, also I want to thank Representative Representative Turner, Representative Hardister for working with me on this. I'll try to be brief in my explanation, so I'll try to go through this points real quick, 474 has two main provisions, section one of the bill seeks to exempt something called Track Out from being defined as a licensed child care center. Track Out is a program that provides all day care to school age children who enrolled in year around school for the two to three weeks of the kids are tracked out for instance in my district I have a school, that goes on a none three week system. Track Out they will be eligible for that in that three weeks of time that they are not actually in school. I think it's worth noting that Track Out is exactly like Summer Day Camp, for those children who go to Summer Day Camp from six to seven weeks during the summer. Summer Day Camp however is not defined as a licensed child care facility in the general statue, while Track Out camp is, and we just believe that makes sense for Track Out camp to also not be defined as a licensed Daycare facility. There are other reasons for this that we're making this change for instance licensed Childcare facility primarily address 0-5 years of age. While Track Out camp address school-aged children. So it really is not applicable the child care licence. So the regulations are not ethical, but I have other examples, for the second time I'll leave it at that. You get the point about Track Out, and why it should not be licensed child care center. Section to the bill addresses something called healthy out of school term or a host recognition program. The host coalition was made up of educators and partnership with the YMCA they developed a set of evidence based healthy eating and the physical activity of what we call standards it addresses snack and drink content and quality parent and care giver education, physical activity screen time and training for staff so now there's a whole list of things that it try to address. This section of the bill addresses three things which regard to host, it will direct department of health and human services to establish a voluntarily, and I do emphasis the word voluntarily.

Recognition program that meets healthy eating and physical activity of what we call healthy standards. It would direct HHS to develop a process administered on the department's website, where about an out of school time program they'd be recognize is meeting those standards, and finally the bill with direct department to provide an authentic template that includes specified information signed by after school program director demonstrating the manner in which the program meets the hyper standards, so one out of every three children in use in North Carolina under the age of 17 are obese or over weight. And we just feel this is one small way that we can have a voluntarily, no mandate, no calls program that helps alleviate that problem. Thank you Mr. Speaker. Is there further discussion or debate, if not the question  before the house is to passing  of house bill 474 in it's second reading. Those in favor will vote aye, those opposed will vote no, the clerk will open the vote The clerk will lock the machine and record the vote the ayes were 112, the no's are four. The bill has passed its second reading and will without objection be read a third time. General assembly of North Carolina next. Is there further discussion or debate? If not the question before the house is to pass house bill 474 on its third reading. All those in favor will say, aye. Those opposed will say no.  The ayes have it. The bill has passed its third reading, and it will be sent to the senate. House Bill 439, the clerk will read. Representatives [xx] Horn and Brian house bill 439, a bill to be entitled to establish the intended generals cemetery transition. To utilize competency based learning assessments for all elementary and secondary students in North Carolina. General assembly of North Carolina enacts. Representative Susan Martin is recognized to explain the bill. Thank you. Thank you member for agreeing to hear this bill today. It came out of education xx committee. We had some good discussion there, and I realized that the title may not be the best explanation competency based assessment. It was found a companion to a bill in the senate and it gives the intention of the general assembly to move towards competency based learning which is in of evaluation kids on seat time and then having high stake year end testing that's not very helpful for the education progress to move towards more on going assessments that are useful in the evaluation of kid's gaming skills and then having then progress individually based on where they're competent. This would allow children who grasp the subject to go ahead and move on and learn more and excel and kids who need more time in foundational skills to not be moved along missing that foundation and struggling because they're missing key components, advice is the state board of education to look at what other states are doing in this area and report back and also you'll see that currently in the Governor's budget, there're competency based innovation pilots. So this is not a new concept and it is not very strict legislative language of intent, so I'd appreciate your support to continue to see us evaluate this in this direction. Happy to answer your questions. Thank you Mr. Speaker. Representative Hallaway is recognized. Yes can respond question please. Does she yield? I yield. She yields. Thank you. Representative Martin, I was just looking over this bill on the computer here and I know that the State Board of Education a few years back we did away with all the State mandated EOCs, actually it was a bill of mine, probably about four years ago and they responded, they came up with something they call the common exam And state board has since allowed counties to opt out of that but it is still on the book so, is what you all are doing here, is this going to be on top of the common exam or is there anywhere in this legislation where you direct the State Board of Education to do away with the common exam. I think that you're moving in the right direction. But if you're going to add this to something else that's already in place, then I might have a concern. Thank you for the question and it is the intent to move towards this and have it to be replacing other tests, but during that process it does not mandate or specific outlined that we're doing away with that, so we will have to continue to work with the state board in that direction. One quick follow up. Do you yield? I yield. So make sure you're understood correctly, so you're saying that if this is the direction

that we go down, then it is your intention for this to replace the common exam and not double up and have common exam and then have this new element that you're adding to the list to the table here? That is correct. That is the intent. Representative Speciale for what purpose do you speak on the bill? That is a responsive question. There is a response to yield Representative Speciale. I yield. Does this have anything to do with Common Core and if so what? This has nothing to do with Common Core. Further discussion or debate? If not the question before the House passage of house bill 439 with its second reading those in favor will vote aye those oppose will vote no the clerk will open the votes. clerk will lock the machine and record the votes, the ayes were 112, the no's were two the bill is passed at its second reading and with, without objection it will be read a third time.

House bill 334, the clerk will read. Representatives Geeda[sp?], Steinberg[sp?], house bill 334, ability to be entitled [xx] through the application to process and allow the [xx] for extra curricular activities. [xx] Representative [xx] is recognized to explain the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker. House bill 334 does basically two major things the original bill if you have been a school assistant in early age that allows school system to be opportunity allow an extra curriculum pay which is almost always for sports you can't charge a fee for academics it can only be sports or something similar to that, there's is a provision in the charter school law that says you have to abide to by the geographic LEA that you sit in so if you get to evoke your students from one county but you're geographically located in another county or LEA what happens you have to live by that LEA rules on whether or not you can charge an extra activity fees. This bill simply states that if 40% of your student body comes from anLEA that allows extracurricular activity fees to be charged you can then charge them as well at the charter school, that is the original portion of the bill was originally set at 10% and we raised the threshold to 40% to make sure that we were capturing all in the cases where it was most necessary. The second maker pieces this bill is it allows, it basically prohibits charge gloat[sp?] patients from being denied solely based on typographical errors, and allows the opportunity to fix them versus being thrown out because they didn't dot an I. The second part of that is it allows them to give 10 minute presentation to the charter school advisory board on why they believe that they should get their charter. If past education today I believe you anonymous, I don't believe there is any opposition to it, I know of no opposition to the bill and I'm happy to answer any questions. Further discussion on debate for what purpose you [xx], The sponsor would yield for question. Does he yield? I do. He yields. Would you do me a favor and explain section one again? Yeah, section one is apart of the child school bill that basically says right now their is child school application as I understand it I don't want throw arrows but it's my understanding that some times if a charter school puts an application and they forgot a piece in the application I think pretty lengthy, they forget a piece, they forgot [xx]. It's not always that simplistic, I'm overstating that I acknowledge, then it's thrown out and not even considered if it's if they overlook something. We're all human we're all overlooking what we're saying now is the charge board advisory group has to give them notice you didn't do Yes and it gives him five days to respond. Further discussion or debate, if not the question before the house is the passage of house bill 334 on its second reading, all those in favor will vote aye, those opposing will vote no.

The bill has passed its third reading and would be sent to the senate, house bill 559, the clerk will read Representatives Whitmire, Lucas, Riddell, and Elmore, House Bill 559, a bill to be entitled an Act To Direct State Board of Education to provide student performance data to parents, students and teachers on result, state [xx] test assessment and to increase the five day number of days assessment. The final exam can be administered within days before the end of the semester or year, just [xx] NX. Representative Witmoers, recognized to explain the bills. Members of the house this bill has two objectives, it also has very broad bipo[sp?] support is being coordinated with every stakeholder I could imagine, but openly it's been requested by teachers, students and parents to ensure its primary objectives is that parents, teachers and students get timely and adequate feedback on their final exams EOGs, EOCs, NC finals and the [xx] post-assessments, so that the test has more purpose than just a score and with that it also enables teachers to better reflect and adjust their lesson plans for the next time they offer the course, where they see strengths and weaknesses or things that need to be worked on. Another measure in working with DPI that was included is, almost every school system in the state needed an extension on when or how long they had to administer their finals whether it was in the semester or at the end of the year. So that another part that is in embed in here and I ask for your support. So further discussion or debate. If not the question before the house is the passage of house bill 559 on it's second reading. All those in favor will vote aye those opposed will vote no. The clerk will open the vote [xx] the clerk will lock the machine and record the vote. The aye's are 113 the no's are zero.

Representative Ireland is recognized to explain the Bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker. This Bill passed out first objection day I believe a unanimous vote is the three remaining provisions of the department morning have about 8-10 that they presented to us, and I believe they're very simple I'll give a quick break with summery. The turn off authority, that is gives the 25 authority the Bill is send electronic Bills, not just years passed to serve as Bills. They're passing to service, still generating activities just makes it identical to what we deal with it for the third division third team which is sort of work in progress, and exemption for the Amsterdam because they won't be competing against private businesses, and then the The house allows the obtainer to remove vehicles with the approval of the electral mail has to move and make approval of DOT so I guess they'll do either one, they'll have us particularly in snow and ice events and the states I have traveled is final with this change still have any questions? Is there probably a discussion or debate? If not, the question before the house is the passage of House Bill 268 on it's second reading those in favor will say, excuse me, those in favor will vote aye, those opposed will vote no.

[xx] does he yield? he yields Representative Aila looking at the section on the electronic billing and it notes here on line 19 that the authority mus receive written consent of the owner. So how does this process work? When does [xx] authority send an electronic, bill? I don't have details on that, it appears that it must be some kind of approval or waiver given when they send a bill in the future give them a form, they can be billed electronically from then on, but I don't have specifically how it's going to work. Follow up. Yeah follow up. He yields? Yes He yields. Well if you see when I'm talking about on lines 18 and 19, it's not clear to me just how this relationship will work between the authority and the person who didn't pay the toll. My question is, do you understand how it would work? I have to admit I do not understand exactly how it's going to work, but why are they getting a written remission before they start saying bills alright. Mr. Speaker would we able to set a side the bill for a little bit so we can try to get an answer to that question. Are you liking the motion or are you asking a question Representative Fraley? I'm just asking a request from Representative either.  I have no objection to. Set it aside.  Set it aside to the today's calender. Thank you sir. House bill 456 the clerk will read.

Turner Thank you Mr. Speaker, this bill mainly emphasizes that we're clarifying and recognizing the equipment that has being used in farming in my area as farm equipment. There is been some question about the newer equipment whether it complies with  current law and we are satisfied that it does. Some current farm equipment being used in fields  have balloon tyres, they must travel  long roads between fields and the farms.

Thank you Mr speaker this is exactly the same bill that the house passed the last session, and what will be into the senate and kind of disappeared

for a while it codifies what most motorists believe to be the case and it's just simple it spells it out and I urge you to support it. For what purpose does the lady from Wake representative arise. Yes, by third finger pat press the wrong button on the last bill on 456, and I like to be voted as saying yes please. The lady will be recorded as having voted aye on the second reading of house bill 456. Further discussion, further debate on House Bill 422. For what purpose does the lady from Mecklenburg Representative Cunningham arise? Thank you Mr Chair. They ask to bill sponsor question? Does the gentleman from Mecklenburg yield to the lady from Mecklenburg  .yes.he yields. Thank you. Our Representative Alexander, I see it provides immunity to the funeral director and the funeral, I guess that's the same position so if you accidentally hit and kill somebody will that give you immunity to death? If you're following the section of the bill that say how you're supposed to leading the procession you do have limited immunity if you don't follow it you don't. Thank you. For what purpose does the gentleman from Cumberland Representative Glazier arise? To see if the Representative Alexander would yield for a question. Would the gentleman from Mecklenburg yield to the gentleman from Cumberland. Yes, I do. He yields. Thank you very much Mr. Speaker thank Representative I'm following Representative Cunningham question and I was trying to read I thought I understood it until your answers, we Representative Cunningham so as I read section I think it's line 40 to 50 that the immunity occurs if the funeral procession was operating in accordance with the law, and if they were even if their was negligence but not as it says that provided that this limited grant of immunity does not apply if the death, personal injury or property damage arose from a negligent act or omission in the operation of a vehicle vehicle. So, I forward the answer to Representative Cunningham question will be the merely will not apply, and there will be negligence there, because otherwise what does that clause mean? What it is supposed to be doing is to grant limited immunity, if you're following the strictures in the Bill. If you are not following the strictures. You don't have the limited immunity in leading the procession. Follow up Does the gentleman yield to an additional question? Yes. He yields. And I think, again, it's going to be in the form of a question but maybe what it says or, the question is what it says, is that if you're following the operating procedures, any liability that comes because you're in the processional because you're operating correctly there, that gives you immunity, but if you're negligently operating your vehicle, even if you're following scriptures but you're negligently operating your vehicle, you wouldn't have immunity. That's correct. So that would get back as a follow-up. The gentleman we yield to. Yes. Alright. So that gets back to Representative Cunningham's question again her question I thought was if your sort of negligent and operating your vehicle in the procession and the funeral director, funeral establishment or employer agent you are still liable there's no immunity there for negligently operating the vehicle the immunity is only if something happens as a result of the procession independent of that with I'm I reading is that correct That's correct, this is what I understand Alright, Thank you Further discussion, further debate on House Bill House Bill 422 seeing non the question before the house is the passage of the House Bill 422 on a second reading, those favoring passage will vote aye, those oppose will vote no, the clerk will open the vote the clerk will lock the machine and record the vote, with 109 voting in the affirmative and four in the negative, House Bill 422 has passed the second reading

To speak on the bill please. The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. Thank you. Rep. Cunningham and Rep. Glazier, a right does not relinquish the responsibility of the funeral director or the profession at the intersection. What's happening now throughout the state, especially in a lot of the smaller communities, is that the law enforcement used to come and give funeral escorts, but I know in my particular town in Southern Pines they elect not to do that any more. So the funeral director under statute already has to have a amber or purple light on their car to go through the intersection. It does not relinquish the responsibility of the funeral director if he goes to the intersection at 50 miles an hour and doesn't stop. So what this does is that it has a limited that you go through the intersection, you secure all caller stop and you proceed on. And, this does not relinquish the responsibility or negligence of the funeral director at all, No Sir. And there is also third parties that are being hired to do funeral escorts in larger cities that is happening now, so, this is an on going problem and especially for our profession. Thank you.

Millis, House Bill 538. A bill to be entitled an Act to Amend and Clarify the Powers of Water and Sewer Authorities. General Assembly of North Carolina Enacts. For what purpose does the gentleman from Pender, Rep. Millis, arise? To briefly debate the bill? The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. Ladies and gentlemen of the House, this bill only seeks to clarify Water and the Sewer Authority powers. Section one of the bill exclusive spells out that water and sewer authorities do have the ability to craft ordinances associated with water. It is currently granted but is kind of separateid in the statutes. We wanted to explicitly spell it out in the same way that it's done for sewer ordinances. Section two of the bill actually allows orders through authorities to enter into development agreements is something that municipalities were allowed to do but orders through authorities  were left out of the statues. So just clarifying that as well for the last section for them to be able to offer a reward for individuals who  help them to find individuals who are actually damaging or vandalizing their infrastructure. I'll ask for your support no entertaining questions. Further discussion or debate on the house committee substitute for house bill 538.

Those favoring passage will say aye, Aye Those oppose will say no. In the opinion of the Chair the ayes have it, and the House Committee substitute for House Bill 538 has passed his third reading and will be sent to the Senate members of the chair can I have your attention please. Please take note of the following bills. House Bill 86, short title, utility line, relocation's school board. House Bill 122 add county's cities State Health Plan. House Bill 154, city, town, and authority State Health Plan. House bill 30, 70 short title, 7 local government in state health plans. It has been reported to the chair that these bills were refer to the appropriations with no appropriations component, the chair orders the members to review these bills and will publicly it to add these bills to todays count, as from 630 the clerk will read Representative Yelberger, house bill 630, a bill to be entitled, an act to direct Department of Environmental and Natural Resources and Environment Management Commission to explore alternate measures for protecting of water quality or Falls lake, general assembly of [xx] NX. For what purpose does the gentleman from Persene, Representative Yelberg arise. Talk about the bill. The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. This is a study bill to look at whether we still have the most effective program for trying to prove the water quality on Falls lake. Well many believe this is an unattainable goal under any circumstances, we need to continue to look at new technology and methods that become available everyday. The bill specifically looks at the solar aerators that are being tried on Jordan Lake, and applying any lessons that might have been learnt there. There are similar experiments taking place all over the country. It can many will say the present rules were hard on everyone, but it is clear that they had been much harder on the lesser fluent. Representing the poor section of the river base and I must pushed to continuously look at this rules and ensure that we're using the best practises. In results, we're seeing are worth the price we're paying. We can't afford to sit around and do nothing, so I'm asking that we take a look at this rules again. For what purpose is the general finish, for what purpose does the gentleman from Hinosin representing representative Magretio rise to speak on the bill the gentleman has support to debate the bill This bill relates to that I spoke on, last year on the floor and actually came up within the budget and it was an awkward moment because then I grilled my then seatmate on a project called Solar-B which was an engineering way of trying to clean up Jordan lake. I said at the time that I hope that I was wrong and that Solar-B will be was going to get Jordan Lake cleaned up, the jury is still out on this one. The Solar-B product is twirling around Jordan lake, and each [xx] is being tested, and the water quality is being determined. I would recommend that the body support this bill. It is a bill that

simply asks for, with respect, the Fall lake that we take what we learned in Jordan lake and if the solitary product works and maybe it's something we all use for a lake and we'll know that I said in committee today I actually spoke with North Carolina state professor today about it and it's still early on and inconclusive but frankly the so [xx] product has not yet been shown to have made a significant change in Jordan Lake, but again if we're going to face what we do on fact on science, then this bill shouldn't be threatening and I urge support of the bill. For what purpose does the gentleman from [xx] representative [xx] arise? To debate the bill. The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. Thank you very much Mr. Speaker, members I'm getting close to becoming now an old timer here. I'm in my 11th here so I'm not one of the senior citizens here but I'm no longer one of the young folks and when you've been here awhile you start to experience some things and the falls lake stakeholder process the extensive discussions on how exactly the clean up falls lake is one of the most extensive and painful processes with which I've been involved. Any time we're dealing with a limited resource and you're dealing with competing areas of the state that all have a stake in a certain resource, you know it's going to be painful and you know folks are going to have to compromise, you know a deal is going to have to be struck and surely that's what happened here and the was a deal, but I think all the stake holders walked away from the table holding their nose, not feeling completely comfortable about the deal, but just about everybody walked away from it knowing they've gotten a deal done. That deal does not result truly in the cleanup of falls lake until the year 2040. So it's not a hastier rush process in addition as the process went on, or after we thought it was done, it was extended out a further two years before it started. So there's some indication that the process that's been put in place is achieving some success already in some of the lower parts [xx] it's literally to say, but we think that it maybe working. The thing I've learned from experience here is that when you go through a painful process like that, and you have a deal that nobody loves, but that everybody signed onto, you dove back into it at your peril. When you start to unravel the deal, all too easily, the entire deal will unravel and then all of a sudden you're going back to the drawing board again and you're going to cause more pain for everybody else. So while this is on it's face just a study, it's on the faith that all legislative cliche camel's nose under the tent and that this is going to be the first step in a process to reopen the Falls Lake stakeholder process. Now we've got the solarbees out there running loose on Jordan lake, if after that's done we think that there's has been some success there which most folks I talked to are not optimistic about the science there. Let's go back and talk, see what the other stakeholders say and say, hey maybe there is a cheaper way to do this and then let's talk about re-opening the process and see if we can find a better way. But right now folks, no one is optimistic that the solarbees are going to work. Everyone is still exhausted from the Falls Lake stakeholder process. A deal's in place, a deal that is starting to show some signs of success. Let's don't tinker with it now. Please vote against this bill. For what purpose does the lady from Wake, Representative Polly arise? Speak on the bill. The lady has the floor to debate the bill. Well I'll try not to echo my colleague here from Wake also but I do too live in a not rich community that drinks water from Falls Lake. And we too are concerned about it. However again we do have a study already in process in the [xx] and we need to complete that process before we move on money is tight so let's study what we can and get the study before we go off on another study in another place. Thank you. For what purpose does the gentleman from Pearson[sp], Representative Yarborough, arise? To debate the bill a second time. The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill a second time.

I do believe that rules like this have got to change with the times and take advantage of any technologies they have become available or changing conditions. We have a significant problem in our nation right now with the disparity of wealth and one of the leading drivers of that wealth disparity is affordable housing. Now the ground effect of these rules primarily has been it adds $8 or $9, 000 to the cost building a house. That's not a big deal, if you're building a quarter of a million dollar house, but if you're building a $70, 000 house for a starter family to start gain start on building their own personal wealth. In that house is not going to happen. So that there major ramification to al these rules and regulations and all I'm asking is that we change to study them and determine if they're absolutely necessary. Further discussion further debate on the second reading of House Bill 630. seeing none to question before the house is the passage you passed bill 630 on it's second reading.

Those favoring passage will say I, I, those opposed will say no No In the opinion of the chair the I's have it and House Bill 630 has passed his third reading, members of the chair could I have your attention.

Thank you Mr. Speaker. The Chair is pleased to welcome the gentleman to the chamber. The Chair appreciates the gentleman from Mecklenburg as has the reading clerk making the announcement. The Committee Substitute for House Bill 276, the clerk will read, Representative Ross, Gill, Goodman nd house bill 276, a bill to be entitled, an act to enact the agencies in participating procedures of act 2015, General Assembly, North Carolina act for what purpose does the gentleman from [xx] Representative Wallice arise? To present the bill. The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker, members, this is a fairly complex bill, it's in six parts. Basically, this is an act to replace to revise the procedures for entry two and exit from the Teachers and [xx] Employees retirement system and the local government Employees Retirement system by public agencies in order to protect the physical integrity of the retirement system. [xx] go into a brief

summary but what I want to, I mention first is that this, I want to first clarify what this bill is and what this bill bill is not, because I think there's been some confusions. A few emails bouncing around that have tried to turn this into something that it's not This in no way is a bill trying to create a barrier for anyone to get into the system. Quite to the contrary, in fact we have had numerous meeting with the stake holders to work out the language, and the language that we have in this SCPS is language it was agreed upon by all parties involved. Actually if you look at section one of the bill, In section one. Section one removes the barriers to participation and the plan by charter schools. It does that several ways. One, it removes the 30 day restriction that was there before. It gives charter schools the opportunity to operate the first year if they so desire on a provisional basis. Part of the reason for that is because there are a lot of complicated computations that go into pension planning and future benefits and future abilities. And as such, a lot of the few schools in the first year may not have the data, the income data, the attendance data and so forth, to be able to calculate whether they're going to be able to or whether they want to take on the liability that goes along with signing into the pension plan. So the 30 day restriction is gone. That was something that we worked out with the stakeholders. The provisional entry is there for the first year of operation. It also gives them the opportunity to be removed from this system if they so desire down the road after that first year of provisional acceptance. And it does by laying out some calculations that would need to be met, liabilities that would need to be met, in order to do so. It goes on further to require any agency exiting the retirement system that has participated in the system for more than a year to pay a withdrawal liability before exiting. Now the reason for that is because you can rack up a long term liability real quick in a defined benefit plan. The defined benefit plan is not like an IRA or a 401K that you can enter and exit at will and not have any financial impact on the long term liability of the plan. The liability of those plans is just simply the money that's in the play at the term, on a defined benefit plan there are liabilities that are racked up for all our life term for employees that may retire. and it's important to understand the calculations that go into that. We've also worked out with the stakeholders that there will be an educational process to help any new entity that goes into the system to help them understand the liabilities and the issues that are involved in getting into a long term defined benefit plan, and it's important that will help those are get involved to understand exactly what they're getting into. It also requires the physical research division to obtain an estimate of the cost of the [xx] withdraw liability for any legislation that will remove any agency from the system. It also provides that in the even of voluntary or involuntary dissolution of any school or any Government entity, certain reserve funds from the closure proceeding shall be set aside to pay wages first to any employee that was there,  then the pension plan second, and then the State Health Plan third, in that order, and also this allows the granting of retirement service credit for years that employees worked in a local government agency before the agency joined the Local Government Employees Retirement System, and quite simply this really has to do with  Local Governments, this particular a provision. I was looking at some numbers I've got a Local Government in my district that the joint into the retirement system and gave credit to him employees that had been there 15, 20 years not

realizing the long term liability that will create and I've got one [xx] [xx] 10 1/2 for some of their payroll to cover the liability for employees that retired or they took on [xx] with the entity well before they join the retirement system, and this will actually take effect on July 15th and would not affect anyone that was in it prior to, [xx] stand ready to answer questions signal. For what purposes, a gentleman from [xx] represented Brad [xx]? To see if the bill sponsor will question Does the is a gentleman from [xx] yell for gentleman from Markenberg? I yell. He yells, thank you [xx] Thank you, Representative Rose, in the event that a school misses the payment after the one year provisional period, does the bill have a right to cure period so that the school can make any corrections before the Board of Trustees would revoke their privilege to be a part of the retirement system? Absolutely the system as it operates now, and I'm glad you brought this up, because one of the issues that that's dealt with in the pension plan, and this is not unique or applies to a school for say, this is with all local government. It's like payments. And we have a number of local governments that run late on payments, sometimes payments get very late. The problem in late payments is that, the actuarial calculations that are made within the plan constantly, in order to determine long term benefits. And when you have late payments, it create a system that you, it's very difficult for the actuaries to be able to determine what benefits are going to be. And in some cases it can actually create a situation where they may have to be forced to liquidate some investments, in order to make payments, that simply would be covered by the deposits and payments if they came in on time. So it's treated just like every other agency. Mr Speaker can I have a follow-up. Does the gentleman from [xx] yield to an additional question from the gentleman from Mecklenburg? I yield. He yields. Thank you for the explanation, in the spirit of clarity, I have a concern around new chartered schools being able to recruit effectively and that the faculty may have concerns that they only have eligibility into retirement system for one year under the basis that the school may meet it's obligations. Would you be open to an amendment to add a 90, just for the clarity a 90-day right to cure period and the Bill? You're talking specifically in terms of late payments? Yes sir. I would be willing to work with you on that because that's obviously an issue, and again, it's not unique to a school which you take to a lot of agencies, and it's something that you dealt with all the time, and we're constantly looking for ways to collect and to get  payments in, but yes. Follow up. Does the General from [xx] question from the gentleman from [xx]? Thank you. Representative Ross, would you mind if we just placed the Bill so we can maybe put amendment in now to get it heard later on the calender today? What I would rather do is go ahead with second reading, and then hold if you want to hold for third. And then possibly work that out between now and third. Is that agreeable? Alright [xx]. You are dismissed for today. Thank you for your service. For what purpose does the gentleman from Guildford, representative Harris to arise? To see if the bill sponsor would yield for a question. Would the gentleman from Mansfield yield to the gentleman from Guildford? I yield. He yields. Thank you sir. I was just curious if the public charter school association or the Alliance of Public Charter Schools has taken a position on this bill? There was a stakeholders group that met a number of times as late as just Wednesday of last week, so yes.

There was, in the last meeting that we held is where we it cleaned up the provisions in section one and yes. Everyone was in agreement when we left the meeting.

The safe harbor bill has come over from the Senate of primary sponsors for Senator Richard and Senator Timon[sp?], what this does is own some very large solar projects in the East and North Carolina, which are a permanent and under way, but would not be completed by the expiration of the tax credits, on January 1, 2016 will be [xx], subject to the following conditions. On those projects of less than 65 megawatts, if they have expended 80% of the cost, and completed partial construction of 80% of the total project, they will be allowed to complete the project in 2017 and retain the credit. On projects larger than 65 megawatts, they must have have expended 50% of their cost and completed part for construction of 50%, by January 1, 2016, and will be allowed to complete that construction in 2017, still by January 1st, 2018, and still be eligible for the credit. The expected investment for this projects, although is currently qualifying, is 525 million. That would be a credit of 183 million to be taken over five years. The budget impact would be 36.7 million dollars beginning of 2016 27 biannium. This also of course does put money in our budget that we would need to send over to the senate, and we have discussed how there are things that we have passed to which the senate might not actually ask, and that would be money that was available to them. That was discussed at length in the finance committee meeting today, and it was somewhat pointedly made that just a little bit right if they needed to address some of those issues, and at least let us know what they were going to do with some of the expenditures we've done in bills, and I I'm going to assume that it was a sign of a good thing that the Senate Finance Committee has scheduled HB 117 for hearing tomorrow.

Auditor Wood found that they were operating correctly after having searched through 110 files from PHP and all of the files from the medical board, they did make some recommendations for improvements. All of those that could be done administratively have been done by the board. There were a few recommendations which required legislative help, they are included in this bill. Along with it are several process changes to create a more open and fair democratic process. The medical board now has time limits.

Representative [xx] house bill 122, a bill to be entitled [xx] their account of towns and cities to enroll their employees, independence in the state health plan for teachers and state employees general serving [xx] NX. For what purpose does the lady from the ansy[sp?] Representative [xx] arise? To speak on the bill. The lady has the floor to debate the bill. This is to authorize this different counties and municipalities to get on to the State Health Plan, and I certainly would appreciate your vote. For what purpose does the gentleman from Pennsylvania, Representative Whitman arise? In [xx] line, thank you. For what purpose is the lady from Suri Representative Stevens rise? To speak on the bill. The lady has the floor to debate the bill. Mr. Speaker, we have done this on repeated occasions in terms of adding cities and towns in counties and towns to our state health plan. There is a cause, and I believe the treasurer at this point has raised an issue, that this is a cost to the state that we are going to start bearing for certain counties and certain towns. Clearly those counties and towns are unable for some reasons, to get their own policy, which is why they are looking to get into for a quick plan. We should proceed very cautiously on this kind of thing and I'll be voting against it. For what purpose does the gentleman from Transylvania, Representative Whitmall rise?  To debate the bill.  The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill.  Mr Speaker, with all due respect to the previous comment Since we have a couple of these coming up, one of which is mine, from an item that was enacted in 2014, currently I think we have 18 entities that have been granted authority to use and have chosen to use the state health plan. I know the past performance is not necessarily a guarantee of future outcomes but of those who were admitted at least what I'm reading here the two actual estimates then and the account of what it is now, one of them was 6% lower in 2014 for actual claims cost. The other acts were found to be 4.3% lower than what it otherwise been to actually help the state plan. If anybody can confirm or deny that I would appreciate it but I think it does speak to the point as to what the ones that we let in last year have done. And I actually support support this bill.

For what purpose does the gentleman from Onslo, Representative Clevard arise? To speak on the bill. Gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. Last year when the bill was found to play a couple of towns or whatever it was [xx] health plan if I got up and spoke against it. I mentioned that there was a policy put in place by the previous administration that this not be done in the rational four will sound, what we're doing now is going to come back to haunt the state of North Carolina. I said it last year, and I'll say it again this year, where this is wrong. We're not going to see the results of it but somewhere down the road the state is going to have one huge cost. care is not cheap as we all know, and we can sit here and feel good and vote for this and say we are helping out towns and our cities [xx] I would appreciate it if you would think 15 or 20 years maybe even longer down the road, how many probably big ends of dollars eventually this will cost the state. This is not a good idea for the state of North Carolina and it's nothing that I would vote for. For what purpose does the gentleman from Brade representative Brison arise? speaker on the bill. Gentlemen has the floor to debate the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker and ladies and gentlemen please I don't know where the curf just coming out from representative standard Sidney their's a curf, evidently I read it through we've a channel that [xxx] last year, they added, one of my citizens on it and the state department of Carlston. They are paying 100% of the premiums they're paying all of their retirement they're still responsible for all their retirements. There is no cost and I don't see, I don't believe that representative Clayton isn't going to break his state up as long as the counties have inserted their bill and I can tell you the County Commissioner had an association that sold [xx] kind of provided their own insurance but they got so out of mind that the counties could not afford it and they discontinued it and what's happening now, the cities are getting in the same shape with [xxx] the small towns and all because over there at the association, they do still provide that but the folks can't afford the insurance. So, all this is doing is exactly what the bill says it's doing, it's hell for them to survive and it is no cost to the state, I just thought I think you need to know then, it's a good bill and it's still about. Thank you ladies and gentlemen, The Chair has received a request to temporarily displace this bill, without objection this bill will be temporarily House Bill 401, the committee substitute for House Bill 401, the clerk read.

For what purpose is the general gentleman from Burke Representative [xxx] rise? To speak on the bill   The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill Mr. Speaker, this legislation is an effort to do some updates to legislation that we passed fairly recently in the last few years to set up something called the longitudinal data system, it's primarily what it may sound like, a system that is intended to provide this body and the Senate with data over  [xxx] period of time to help us make judgments about the success or lack of success in operation of various state programs what this particular bill does is

to add a provision that makes clear that the division of employment, security and the division of motor vehicles will be apart of the sharing of data which become important when your trying to do some of the work that is going on currently. We're trying to assess the effectiveness of educational programs and getting people into the workforce and these other divisions have some of the information that allows us to connect the dots if you will, it maintains and continues in place the privacy protection say that the only data that can be put out in reports is aggregated data that does not identify individuals and it also has a technical provision currently there is a council operation withing DPI utilizing money that comes as a grant from the department of education that money will run out I think in the next year and the council basically will have no funds and will go away and this simply is providing that the launch to no data system will in effect be repository of that information when the council ceases to operate, I'll be glad to try and answer any questions.

Those favoring passage will say aye? Those opposed will say no? It appears to Chair the ayes have it, and house committee substitute for House Bill 401 has passed its third reading, and will be sent to the Senate. House Bill 158 the clerk will read. Representative Lamberth, Daler, Kelly, Makarios house bill 158, bill to be entitled [xx] prohibiting persons under 18 years of age from using tanning equipment, General Assembly of North Carolina act. For what purpose does the gentleman from Forsaith, Representative Lamberth arise? To debate the bill. The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker. House colleagues I'm pleased to present this bill to you and very pleased that the Bolton family has agreed to lend Dr. Jim Folzon's name to this issue. As you can see from the letter of his wife, Dr, Mary Sue Fogon recently wrote to members of the General Assembly. A copy of that letter is at your desk here today. As those of you who knew him may recall, Jim was an early and strong supporter of this legislation. He spoke in favor of this today on this floor. For those of you who did not have the pleasure of serving with him, Jim was a member of the house from Way County for one term. A neurologist in one of the counties me and her have ever met. Last summer during session he passed away quite quickly after receiving a cancer diagnosis. Today we honor his memory by taking up this legislation which will simply prohibit children from using indoor tanning base just as we protect the from other dangerous substances and experiences such as alcohol and tobacco. This is the same legislation that 11 other states including Texas have approved and which was approved by the house in 2013 by a vote of 94 to 22. Current law requires children 13 years and over will have a note from their parent or guardian, this thereof prohibit anyone under the age of 18 from utilizing a tanning base. While tanning base are skin cancer may not seem to compare to the risk of

tobacco and alcohol, in fact skin cancer is a major health problem especially for young people. Melanoma the most dangerous form of skin cancer, is the most common form of cancer for young adults, 25-29 years old, and the second most common form of cancer for young people, 15-29 years old. It is no exaggeration to say that we are in the middle of a skin cancer epidemic of the seven most common cancers in the US, melanoma is the only one whose incident is increasing. We know from research that teens and young adults who begin tanning before the age of 35 have a 59% higher risk of Melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. SARS also tells us that even a single use of a tanning bed increases the odds of getting melanoma by 20%. For other forms of skin cancer those odds are even greater. We know from national surveys that about 30% of Caucasian teenage girls use tanning beds. Last year the CDC this report showing that the cost of treating skin cancer grew by 125% over the last decade, five times faster than any other forms of cancer during the same period. This bill will help slow the skin cancer epidemic and reduce those caused. But most important this bill will save lives. As many of you know the Melanoma can be a devastating disease, if it's not got early, it invades the rest of the body, including brain and it is very very hard to stop and treatments are unlimited. Before I wrap up I also want to say a word or two about the impact of this legislation on businesses and parents. As some of you may know, many in-door tanning salons already offer spray on tans, which are safe. The cost of getting into the spray tent business is much lower than regular turning business and the profit mergin are higher. For those of you concerned about the impact of this bill and small business, this bill will push teenagers and their money in the purchase of self tanning products, which are more profitable than regular tanning biz[sp?] and that will be good for tanning salons that's one of the reasons the Americans Sun Tanning Association and Planet Beach now support this legislation. Now about a parental authority, those of you who have kids know that once they reach a certain age and start driving it can be really difficult to be sure that your kids are following your rules, that's what laws keeps kids away from backing alcohol so helpful. They don't take away parental authority these laws backed up that parental authority. The signing of this Bill, it will help us to ensure who tell the kids not to use the Teddy Bear to follow their rules. The Bill will also protect kids do not come from strong family or whose parents are not aware of risk of indoor teening[sp?] For this and so many other reasons and in memory of our friend Nicole [xx] I ask that you vote yes on House Bill 158. Thank you. For what purpose does the gentleman from Lake Representative [xx] arise? For what purpose does the gentleman from Wake Representative Pendleton arise? I'd like to speak on the bill. The gentleman has I want to debate the Bill. Gym and xx in the widow, were friends with me and my wife for 40 years, and are just fun, fun people. I harassed him against his will when he retired as a neurosurgeon, had pressure to run the the service. So, either way, I went by to see his widow Sunday, and she was ecstatic that we were him and the family named in this Bill forward, and the static about it because of what it could do to keep a lot of people from getting cancer. So about that, I just wanted to say that. For what purpose does the lady from Missouri, Representative Stevens arise? To speak on the Bill. Then you have support to debate the Bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker and I will be brief. I thought Representative Sam might stand up and say this, but this Bill is endorsed by the Child Fatality Task Force.

For what purpose does anyone from Wake, Representative Dola arise?  To debate the Bill. Gentleman has the floor to debate the Bill. Representative Lambert essentially covered all of the points the features of public health for our young people, the long-term cost to those of us to our tax payers, if we don't take these preventative

actions, but I'll also be re-miss if we didn't mention Representative Mark Harla. Many of you here have served with Mark, or know Mark, and know his passion for this issue and the work that he put into it in this house, and so Mark, this one's for you. original support.  For what purpose does the gentleman from Union Representative Horn arise? To speak on the bill.  The gentleman has the floor to speak on the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the house, when this issue came up to the Child Fatality task force, at first I thought the government's getting into our lifes again and telling us what we can and we can't do, but after listening to an incredible amount of From the medical community, I still had some concerns, so I went out and spoke with a number of turning salon operators to find that I was quite amazed to find how many of them thought that this is a good idea that they were seeing these kids that are of course coming I think they are both proof, they all want to look like some of us and they're proud to look like some of us very proud as a matter of fact, they we all know we've got all most of us in here have kids and they all think that they're proof and unfortunately we have parents that aren't quite as responsible sometimes as they should be so if your concern though is that we are going to hurt small business I don't think that's not really bad one on interviews with quite a number of operators of the [xx] as well as the fact that me to step up and give good guidance to our young people, I really urge you to support this Bill.

Mr. Speaker we'd like to object to third if we even going to vote it out tonight. I did speak with the treasury's office, they indicated there is not a financial impact immediately of having these cities counties and towns but the question is can we treat them differently from our state employees when it comes to retiree purposes? If for some reason we were sued for that or we cannot set them up as they separate class of citizen, under this plan we're going

to have an explosion of cost to the state as this people retire. I have requested research to do that both from a physical standpoint, and a civil liability standpoint, so for that reason I'd object that. For what purpose does the gentleman from Wake, Rep. Dollar, rise? These bills Gentleman is recognized to debate the bill. I'm sorry, to debate the bill. The three bills that you have that impact state health plan. The amount is deminimous this is an issue that we've been dealing with for the 11 years that I've been here and was actually dealing with it for a number of years before then. Essentially what we've been doing is, we have been adding the smaller counties and smaller towns around the state and particularly as health care costs have gone up over the years it's been much more economical for them to be part of the larger whole. And so this is a tremendous hill to our smaller rural local governments, it has not had any kind of major impact with regard to our state health plan. The issue is we have other state health plans that are much larger and are not really heard in fact in some cases depending on who's coming in, sometimes it's actually helpful to have these folks as part of what we're doing. so I would encourage you to vote for this three bills. I know we're talking about the one, but these three bills that these smaller communities. We've already been doing this for some time. We already have a number of these communities that are in, and so this is not breaking any new ground whatsoever. The two actuarials have studied each one of these proposals and found them to be demenimus[sp?] to the State Health Plan and for the sake of our mall rural communities, I would really urge you to support these pieces of legislation Speaker.

Representative Louis, Kelly Hu, Avalo[sp?], Lamberth, House Bill 306 a built of the entire remark related to help benefit playing coverage for only the ministry and for a cancer drugs, General Assembly of North Carolina Enex Who is handling this bill? For what purpose does the Representative Lois I believe this is you bill. Mr. Speaker I apologize may I debate the bill? The gentleman from Harnett is recognized to debate the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker and members in my apologies to be [xx], Members house bill 306 is a bill that the members to serve last session are probably familiar with I would like to hear a few high points and maybe I take any more time on the chamber that I need to tonight this bill meets the viral need of many North Carolinians by improving success for life saving or cancer medications some of which were the most effected medication on the market today, could also seek to address the serious healthcare issues out of pocket expenses for patients prescribed and all cancer treatment arangments are called prohibitive in fact studies to that one out of pocket cost or greater than $200 for prescription, patients for a three times more likely to choose not to fill their prescriptions and if those same prescriptions have had a copy of $100 or less. Scientists and oncologists across the nation recognize the cost savings in total treatments, cost for oral chemotherapies over traditional IV medications. Currently oral cancer drugs can be extremely costly for patients because often insurance plan design does not keep pace with the advances in chemotherapy treatment. This is unfairly penalizing patients not to allow them to utilize newly created oral cancer drugs. The old one size fits all cancer treatment adversely effects many families, an access to an oral chemotherapy drug would lift the burden of expensive and time consuming treatments. 37 states have already passed some form of chemotherapy parity legislation, there's no empirical data in any state that such changes have caused insurance premium to rise, this bill doesn't have an impact on the state health plan because state health plan already treats all chemotherapy the same way it does IV chemotherapy. New research shows that oral chemotherapy is the corner stone of cancer therapy. In some cases, oral chemotherapy is the only option. We cannot deny our citizens a better quality of life. I have another page of prepared remarks. The bottom line is this Chamber has debated this before. It's a question of are we going to treat all prescribed chemotherapy drugs the same way at the same cost we treat IV prescribed chemotherapy drugs I know there will be an amendment of it at some point, I will oppose that. I feel most of the members in this Chamber are familiar enough with this issue to be able to vote their conscience. That is all I would ask you to do respectfully. I hope that you will be able to vote green for this bill. Thank you, Mr. Speaker. For what purpose does the lady from Surrey, Represantative Stevens, rise? To speak on the bill and then offer an amendment. The lady is recognized to debate the bill. Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Ladies and gentlemen of the House, for you that were here last year, you can hear the same basic debate again. This bill creates an impossible way for insurance companies to establish a price because it says treat them the same way you would treat the IV medication. Well you can't because the IV medication is a one time event. The IV medication is done under the supervision of a doctor, which is why

it gets a different treatment, or it's done in a hospital. So two pf thesw expenses are we are going to apply to oral chemotherapy and how are we going to apply each and every day? Second thing about this bill these are very very expensive drugs. When other states have done it, they did what we did last year, and that is attach a deductible of some kind that the pharmacy couldn't exceed $500 or $300 or something of that nature. In addition we now have new federal legislation that requires apirety by saying that outer pocket coupe performances and medical expenses have a maximum, so if you've got cancer and you are going through cancer treatment chances are this is not going to be a problem for you anyway because you are going to meet your maximum coupe pretty quickly unless you have an extraordinary plan and that's a risk that you choose to take so other states have done this in a way that I would propose to do by this amendment, and Mr. Speaker if I may send forth the amendment? The lady is recognized to send forth an amendment the clerk will read. Representative  Stevens moves to amend the bill on page 2 lines 4 through 5 by inserting the following lines between. The lady from Suri has the floor to debate the amendment.   Thank you and where it says that it is covered the same as RV drug says to a a cost not to exceed $ 500 in copay,  and that's based on the cost of the medication trying to get it as effectively as we can and I would appreciate your support on this amendment. For what purpose does the gentlemen from [xx] representative Louis arise? To debate the amendment. The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. Mr. Speaker with all due respect lady from Suri and I want to actually thank lady she did share the amendment with me in advance. I respectfully ask you to oppose the amendment the goal of this is obtain parity is to attain the same cost if the doctor the life saving drug prescribed by your doctor is in all chemotherapy drug we wanted to be the same cost to the patient as if the life saving drug as prescribed is an IV drug, if there is a $500 core pay that comes along with the cancer treatment that you have for the Iv drop and the $500 also peak can go wrong  with the full key months drug under the bill as written. The amendment would once again set out two different classifications for the life saving or life prolonging drug I wish to basically ask you to vote against it's the amendment sent forth by the lady. For what purpose does the lady from Franklin, Representative Richardson rise? To speak on the bill when the time comes. For what purpose does the lady Orange Representative Insko arise? To debate the amendment. The lady has the floor to debate the amendment. Thank Mr. Speaker and members I support this amendment representative Lewis said that we need to have parity, other states under other existing situations and laws have found ways to have parity through co-pays and deductibles. Since the law has changed, we don't have access to those that avenue, this co-pay this cap on the co-pay will bring parity to North Carolina the way others states have done it through other mechanisms, and I urge you to vote for this amendment. Further discussion, further debate on the amendment. If not the question before the house is the passage of amendment one sent forth by representative Stephens, those in favor will vote aye, those oppose will vote no, the clerk will open the vote the clerk will lock the machine and record the vote, 33 having voted in the affirmative and 80 in the negative, the amendment fails. For what purpose does the lady from Franklin, Representative Richardson rise? Thank you Mr, speaker, to speak in favor of the bill. The lady has the floor to debate the bill. Thank you. I have had the experience of having oral chemo treatment and I do witness that it is much less debilitating on the person as an individual than the [xx]. When I saw my counterparts go through several hours of intravenous treatment and I could pop a pill and go to my home and take a nap. I woke up the next morning and I was not as dilapidated and I have a state health plan and I never had a problem with the payment, and all my bills were paid, so I do urge you to vote for this bill, thank you. For what purpose does the gentleman from Bladen Representative Briston rise?

To speak on the bill. The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentleman, after serving all the years on health and human services, this is a great bill, and it is an opportunity for us to do what we try to do everyday up here in the legislature and this is just exactly what representative Louise said, it's saving the patients money. I know it brings more competition into the play, but that's what it's all about, that's where the savings come from, and ask that please vote the bill. Further discussion further debate?

This goes back as the Court of Appeals directs did for this General Assembly to do, to simply renumber and reorder so it was clear what was being charged, it changes no substantive law, but I think it reorders and renames and renumber the statutes in a way that we shouldn't have indictments being dismissed because of procedural error, I've no objection to the bill.

Representatives [xxx] House Bill 711. A bill to be entitled, an Act to prohibit the import, manufacture or sale, [xxx] sale, installation or reinstallation of counterfeit and non functional air bags Johnston of North Carolina Enex. The house will come to order the gentleman from Guildford representative Fake has the floor to debate the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker, this are requests for this bill comes from Honda Corporation, we all know Honda they're the one's with the largest corporation in the while they're very present in North Carolina with their air craft manufacturer, they air craft engineer manufacturer and I think does small noise and so forth, so they're good client and a good the neighbor here in North Carolina and they came with this request because our problem with counterfeit and non functional air bags. And if you drive a Toyota or you drive a Honda and it happened to have been a salvage vehicle, you may not have a real air bag in it. To give you an example of what where they're so concerned about his, and this occurred in North Carolina. There was a gentleman whose name was Boodang, he was the ration fellow, he was caught with 7, 000 counterfeit air bags that came from China. It was his in North Carolina. He was in North Carolina. Now he was caught by the fag because what he had were counterfeit, they can they have a CO problem oh

no, they have a label problem and then the federal government can put him away, and he is a way in prison now, but if they just defective, if they just not operational, the Feds can't do anything about it. Just a moment representative the Jenifer clock[sp?], the Chair is couple of members have indicated they're having trouble hearing and I'd ask members to please take conversations outside.  I apologize for the interruption the gentleman from Guildford has the authority to continue debating the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker, so we were talking about the non-functional air bags we may not have a label on, but they're just on in good, don't work so we're going to need to do something here the state law and several states have done theirs. It's a reality to the simple bill. It's simply identifies what a counterfeit or non functional airbag is and then has some very simple control bill 10 you can transfer a motor vehicle when the transferor has knowledge that the vehicle is or was a flood vehicle a reconstructed vehicle or a salvage motor vehicle without disclosing that fact that's already in law here in North Carolina this bill adds to that, you can transfer a motor vehicle when the transferor has knowledge that a counterfeit airbag or a non functional airbag has been installed in the vehicle in other words the backyard mechanic who puts the bag together a salvage vehicle or flood vehicle and put fake airbugs in it and we're also rewritting a section in section three, it shall be unlawfull for any person, firm or co-operation to knowingly import manufacture sell, offer for sell or install a counterfeit airbug or a non functional airbug so it's a simple language, it is a great safety measure for us here. We do have one group that has a problem with the bill we're trying to work that out, but this is some of the other dealers who are concerned about perhaps having an employee of theirs put an airbag in, and then them being held responsibility as an employer we addressed that and I would ask Mr. Speaker if you would allow representative Glazier to speak to the conversation we had today about knowing that For what purpose does the gentleman from Cumberland Representing Glaizer has? To briefly debate the bill Mr. Speaker. Gentleman has the floor to debate the bill.   Thank you Mr. Speaker this was a conversation and since you may get the question if you look at section three of the bill you should see that the amends here are the requirement before anybody can be convicted of this is that they knowingly install or import a manufacturer or sell. This is not going to catch the innocent person, this is going to catch the person because that man is rare is the second highest in the law, and so this is not going to catch an innocent employee or innocent dealer or anyone who doesn't know exactly what they are doing. I know they will work it out in the senate but if you can ask the question, this is going after the people who are pretty deliberately and purposefully understand what they're doing. Thank you Mr. Speaker. For what purpose does the gentleman from Gifford Representative Blast rise?  To speak on the bill.  The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker, this really is an important matter. These things are coming into the country, they don't work anywhere near as quickly, and as precisely as the real airbags and it is a safety problem that you may see more and more so I support the bill, and I'll close it at that because I don't want you to think that I've become an airbag myself. For what purpose does the gentleman from Craven, Representative Speciale rise? To see if the bill sponsor would yield for a question. Does the gentleman from Guilford yield to the gentleman from Craven? Representative Faircloth, Representative Faircloth does the gentleman yield to the question from Representative Speciale? I certainly do. He yields. My concern is Section Two, line three, paragraph three or whatever it is, where it says should be allowed for the transfer motor vehicle when the transfer has knowledge that a counterfeit airbag or a nonfunctional airbag has been installed in the vehicle, it says you can't transfer it. It doesn't say like the previous line that you cannot transfer it without what is worth phrasing Without disclosing

it. It specifically prohibits the transfer of the vehicle, was that intended? You're talking about the transfer vehicle when the transferrer has knowledge that a counterfeit airbag is being installed in that car. Well, if they know it's been installed, that's the crime, putting it in there and letting it be transferred, that's where the danger happens. Does the gentleman from Guilford yield to an additional question? I do. The gentleman from Craven, He yields. Okay, Somebody can have a vehicle where they have discovered that there is a counterfeit airbag in it. If we want to sell that vehicle, it should be on the sale list, as long as you disclose it that fact the other guy the money to have this thing changed whereas maybe I don't. This is prohibiting the transfer of that vehicle, period, that simply you can't transfer without a disclosure you just can't transfer it at all,   It has to be an effective airbag in which we transfer  I see Among counterfeit or a functional airbag has to be employing transfer The speaker on the Bill The gentlemen from Claven has the floor to debate the bill. The problem with you not being able to transfer, you might not have the money, you might have a car and you discover at some point that this thing has a counterfeit bag, or the airbag doesn't work, or whatever it may be, you may not have the money, this is not cheap to change it's airbag, you talking $1500 for the bag and then plus labor. So you may not have the money, so I'm just going to get rid of the car and get another car. You can't sell that car with that bag, defective bag, even if you just closer. According to this, even if you disclose it to the purchaser, which could be an auto deal and say, hey, you know the air bag in here is no good, you can sell a flooded vehicle as long as you disclose it. You can sell a salvage vehicle as long as you disclose it. So I don't understand why you couldn't sell this vehicle as long as you disclose it and they know that this thing doesn't work and it's on the title. That's my objection to it and for that reason I won't support the bill. Further discussion for the debate? If not the question for the house is the passage of house bill 711 on its second reading those in favor will vote aye, those oppose will vote no, the clerk will open the vote.  The Clerk will lock, the machine will record the vote, ten having voted in the affirmative and four in the negative, house bill 711 passes its second reading and will without objection be read a third time.  General assembly of North Carolina enact.

Representatives Riddell, Whitmire, Brockman and Iler, House Bill 373 a bill to be entitled An Act To Extend The Time Frame To Implement the Requirement for paper balloons from 2018 to September 1st 2019, for calender that use direct record electronic voting machines for vote on requirements general assembly of North Carolina enacts. The gentleman from Araman representative Radel has the floor to debate the bill.

Thank you Mr speaker and thank you members and let me bring this bill up at this late hour. What this does current law North Carolina requires that all voting machines as of January 1 2018 be capable of producing a a paper ballot. Now currently there are 24 counties in our state that use the DRE. The Direct record Electronic what we would call the touch screen. Those 24 counties have until January 1 currently until 2018 of paying for a complete change outs to the paper ballot machines. Now that quite a heavy lift for some counties to do, counties are coming out of the hard times like our state does and some have a very tight budget right now, so what this bill will propose is giving those 24 counties an additional 20 months to September 1 of 2019 19 in which to make these purchase and change over to the paper ballot capable machines, we debate a lot of issues here and this body about trying to do things for Tier 1 and Tier 2 Counties that's cost state some money. If we gave this extra 24 counties a little extra space and time 20 months, what we are doing nine of those counties are Tier 1 tender 202 [xx] fiber 203 what we are doing is giving them a lot of help with their budgets and doesn't cost a stated dine. Now currently also there is only one certified paper ballot machine in our State, so by giving a little bit of extra time for these 24 counties we're allowing hopefully additional certifications of machines to have more than one vendor to choose from. I have been in communication in the State Board Of Election I have no problem with this delay, I encouraged the numbers to go green. Thank you. For what purpose does the gentleman from Ranchland Representative Aila rise? to debate the bill. The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. Just to second what my colleague has just said and my county has done a good job with the touchscreen machines produced a pay per bath as solution but not satisfactory to the folks that past this last session. So, they just need an extra 20 miles to spread out, they cost me well over a million dollar, they need to spread out a little bit further and get ready for this machines which are switch over to the paper ballot. For what purpose does the lady from Orange Representative Insko rise? To ask a bill sponsor a question Does the the gentleman from Alamance heel to the lady from Orange? Yes Sir. He yels  Could you tell me what happened to the half of the money when we however money Help America Vote Act money came down.

So do  you happen to know what happened to the harbor money? I believe I do Representative Insko and I'm not speaking from my knowledge but I will redeem what Steven and Belisa Hallway said in election when the question came up during election committee hearing she said the money has been used out, there is no more money available for this purpose. Does the gentleman heel to an additional question from the lady from Orange? Mr. Speaker I will just object to third so I can get some more information.  Very well. The lady's objection to third will be noted at the appropriate time. For what purpose does the gentleman from Transylvania, Representative Whitmire, rise very brief comment to debate the bill.

General Assembly of North Carolina enacts The

lady from Mecklenburg Representative Connie has the floor to debate the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the house and I want to thank the other primary bill sponsors Representative Glacier, McGrady and Herwan the bill does what the title says, it does create a new article in the general statutes that's entitled student safety in athletics. This is about sudden cardiac arrest awareness among our athletes in our stay in high school particularly. The bill is going to direct the state board of education to develop guidelines and use education materials that have already been developed by those entities and the state like the American Heart Association and other groups have these materials available.

It is the intention of the chair to add like we did today, most of the bills that have come out of the committees tomorrow to dispose of those tomorrow in session and you can see the committee meetings, there're a few for Thursday. We would probably tend to add some of those, a session on Thursday, we're looking at 11 AM right now. I've got some requests for a later session but I would say it's like a 9:1 margin of those asking for it to be an earlier session. So, we're looking at an 11 am session on Thursday morning we will be taking up a number of bills and there may be some bills that actually result in some amount of length debate but that's the intention for Monday and then it would also be the intention for Thursday, and also would also be for Monday that we have our traditional schedule at 7 o'clock session Monday night,

but with the understanding that a number of committees are probably going to be meeting on Monday before the session and I think what we're trying to do if you look at the schedule is to dispose the bills early on to get them out the way and may have what happened to be here, not this coming weekend, but the next weekend, that's the intent not the weekend but for the late hours on Thursday so that's the intent going for so in short answer 3 o'clock session tomorrow 11:00 A. M. For Thursday with committee meeting's in it's first hour round. To our court recognize our two announcement House committee on judiciary one will meet Wednesday April 22nd at 12:30 P. M and 4:15.
