And now we'll move right into the agenda. We're going to take a little out of order today, we're going to start with House bill 706. Representative McGrady. I think I've got Senator Apodaca here with me too, I'm your wing man. Thank you Madam Chair. This is a bill that relates to summer camp cabins. You may remember last year we passed the law that allows for rustic cabins to be use at summer camp but it really didn't affect anybody else. The problem is basically that building code doesn't know how to deal with summer camp cabins and so they sort of defaulted to creating holiday-inn rooms which isn't a summer camp cabin at all we had lights and sprinkling system and all sorts of other things being required in summer camps and so this creates a new category the cover of the summer camp cabin you think its shouldn't cost $50, 000 they don't need light and sprinkling system I would appreciate, Madam Chair, Representative M'crady do you want to continue. Would you like to go ahead with. I real don't. I just pass anonymously in the house. Don't have one sided there. And there. You didn't let me get arms senator Apodaca who represents more summer camps in North Carolina and probably the nation is full support of the bill So I'm in other words building county council support it. Some of kind people support the damping, I'm not aware of no opposition. Madame Chair I think I may want to take it bad. Are there any questions? Senator Alexander. Well since senator Apodaca said imput up like I need have a little but I'll question again with this could be right relative? Will they be able to take some of those guardily exit signs rather than the ones that are already there? Yes. If they're any other questions? Senator Writer. Thank you. I've done a little bit of camping in my life and this is a great idea except, there's no provisions in there that I see for sanitation truly. Thank you. Other questions? Senator Mckinney. Now this is a state wide deal not just exclusive to the mountains on North Carolina reason I [xx] reason I an't say rival for edge camping area that has rustic cabins and want to certainly make sure that we're able to use this sack, forth right good legislation to keep it, I rest it can. It's a to stay word bill and specifically the working scheme we've had input in

Senator That is what the bill says, we did check with the Wildlife Resource Commission and they said that the species is plentiful so we do not need a big limit. Follow up I just need to say I'm one that an old wine hunter and sports outdoors man always arrested for protecting the resource for future generations. It's the reason I posed that question. Thank you. Yes sir and you know historically we had a lot of fox hunters in Wills county and I think that a lot of those people are not with us any longer and I've not heard any objections to the bill. Chairman Bronk Just a quick comment, Senator Mcguiness, are you speaking on behalf of the foxes, have you heard from that group?   No, have not again just from a standpoint I just want to make sure we protect the resources for future generations.

What this bill will allow is for a lawfully taken deer by a hunter, but a hunter can't sell the deer skin. Right now the price that the deer skin is getting is anyway from $3-6 for the parle to hide itself, and this will allow wildlife to develop rules to allow for this sale and I appreciate your support.
