E. Taylor, constable J.B Garris, and commissioners abner lassider, W.D. Bridges, R.T. White, J.O. Fife, and D.C. Bridges.

Section 3 this resolution is effective upon adoption. [SPEAKER CHANGES] representative ray is recognized to debate the resolution [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. speaker. and ladies and gentlemen of the house. its an honor and privilege too to honor the town of Conway on the 100th anniversary. We're a small county, but we have some big hearted people. The town of Conway is located in north Hampton county,and can be traced back to the 1700's. It was known as Kirby township. The name Kirby is derived from Thomas Kirby Sr. who received a Patton for 1200 acres. Conway was actually settled around 1835, and was known as martin crossroads. a deed in north Hampton county court house records purchase of land by john martin in 1742. The year 1888 brought a railroad to martin cross roads. a small depot was built and the conductor of the train decided that the depot should be called Conway. In the name of a relative of a chief railroad official. In rural north Carolina that's how a lot of names were just picked out of the air the town I live in used to be called camp store, and now its called the town of gaston, but again its the history and the heritage of our small rural parts of north Carolina. the ?? was petitioned that a.
Peace office be called Conway thus became the Town of Conway. Conway was incorporated in 1913. They are an agricultural community and they’re the main hub to North, Northhampton County. The agriculture, the primary crops are peanuts, cotton, corn, and soy beans. And they’re largest employer is Georgia Pacific and they are very vital to that community and they give back. The town is proud to have its own drugstore and doctor’s office. Some of the people and members here that are from the urban areas that’s a, that's a no brainer for you. But somebody from Eastern North Carolina to have those vital parts to our community is very, very important. But what really makes Conway an excellent town to live is its people, a place where people care about others because they have a population of 760 people. So everybody pretty much knows everybody. So again thank you, Mr. Speaker, Members of the House. It’s an honor and privilege to honor the Town of Conway on an 100th anniversary. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate? If not. The question before the House is the adoption of House Resolution 47. All those in favor will vote aye. All those opposed vote no. The clerk will open the vote.

[SPEAKER CHANGES] The Chair is happy extend the courtesies of the gallery to any elected officials and citizens from the Town of Conway, please stand and let us welcome you. House Resolution 206, the clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] House Resolution 206, House Resolution honoring the memory of United States Senator Key Pittman and Representative Absalom Willis Robertson while commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Wildlife in Sports Sport Fish Restoration Programs the House resolves. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Moffitt, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. If you could have the clerk read the resolution in its entirety. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Whereas more than a century ago, hunters, anglers,and trappers were among the first conservationists who realized America’s natural resources were in peril and could not sustain unregulated harvest and habitat destruction. And whereas hunters, anglers, and trappers took it upon themselves to support laws that stopped excessive harvest of fish and wildlife and established game and fish agencies to protect fish, wildlife in their habitats and supported special fishing and hunting license fees to help fund the new agencies efforts to provide for healthy natural resources for future generations. And whereas the Members of the House of Representative then and now recognize the primary authority to protect and manage fish and resident wildlife within their borders resides in the State fish and wildlife agencies. And whereas upon realizing that license fees alone were insufficient to restore and sustain healthy fish and wildlife populations, hunters, anglers and trappers supported excised taxes on firearms, ammunition, archery equipment, hunting equipment, and fishing equipment to raise additional funds to support restoration and enhancement efforts of the state agencies. And whereas this user pay public benefit system became known as the Wildlife and Sports Fish Restoration Program that began 75 years ago with the passage of the Federal Aid to Wildlife Restoration Act in 1937, which was known as the Pittman Robinson Act after its principle sponsors Senator Key Pittman of Nevada and Representative Absalom Willis Robinson of Virginia. Whereas Pittman Robinson Act was then fostered with the passage of the Federal Aid on Sports Fish Restoration Act in 1950 and further expanded with the Wallop=Breaux Amendment in the Sports Fish Restoration Act.
1984, and whereas the combined contribution of wildlife and sport fishing restoration programs to state fish and wildlife agencies exceeds $13,000,000,000 since 1939, the first year that money was distributed into the states, more than any other single conservation effort in American history, which constitutes collectively the American System of conservation funding. And whereas, the manufacturers of firearms, ammunition, hunting, fishing, boating equipment have collected excise taxes on firearms, ammunition, archery equipment manufactured fishing tackle, electric trolling motors, marine electronics and motor boat fuel and distributed these funds to states through the United States fish and wildlife service, and whereas the manufacturers of firearms, ammunition, hunting, fishing and boating equipment have supported the wildlife and sportfishing restoration programs, and continue to exhibit a spirit of cooperation with the state fish and wildlife agencies, and whereas the cooperative partnership between industry, hunters, anglers, trappers, boaters, recreational shooters, United States fish and wildlife service and state natural resources agency has resulted in the most successful model of fish and wildlife management in the world, restoring populations from coast to coast in Alaska and in Hawaii. Now therefore, be resolved by the house of representatives, section one, the house of representatives honors the memory of United States senator Key Pittman, of Nevada, and representative Absalom Williams Robertson of Virginia, and expresses its appreciation for the public service they rendered. Section two. The house of representatives recognizes America's hunters, anglers, trappers, boaters, recreational shooters, industry state fish and wildlife agencies, and United States fish and wildlife service for their leading role in restoring healthy populations of fish, wildlife and other natural resources, both game and non game, to the abundance we see today through the wildlife exports, fish restoration programs in this, the 75th anniversary year of America's greatest conservation story, supported by the American System of conservation funding. Section three. The principal clerk shall transmit a certified copies of this resolution to the North Carolina department of environment and natural resources, and to North Carolina's congressional delegation. Section four. This resolution is effective upon adoption. [SPEAKER CHANGES] ?? is recognized to debate the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Members of the body, a little over two years ago, when I was fortunate enough to be elected to the general assembly, I was walking around the building on the first floor here, trying to find my office, much like Leo Daughtry mentioned when we recognized the 50th anniversary this building some time ago. And, while I was looking for my office, a senior member of the body ask me if I hunted or I fished. I said, well I fish. And he said, congratulations, you're now the house chair of the sportsmen's caucus. So be careful the questions that you ask, because you're not exactly sure what the outcome of that's going to be. Having been a lifelong fishermen, and also the father of three sons, I can tell you that hunting and fishing are woven into the DNA of not only my family, but just about every citizen of our great state. In 2011 alone, the hunting and angling and trapping sports contributed over $2.3 billion to our state's economy. That's equivalent to $6.3 million per day, wages of $1.2 billion, Federal taxes of 280,000,000, state and local taxes of 249,000,000, for an overall $3.7 billion contribution to our economy. So on behalf of the congressional sportsmen's foundation, the national assembly of sportsmen's caucus is, the North Carolina sportsmen's caucus, the North Carolina wildlife commission, as well as nearly two million hunters, anglers and trappers in our state, I commend the resolution to you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate? Representative Pittman, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To speak to the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to debate the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My seatmate ask me a minute ago was this Senator Pittman kin to me. And I don't know for sure, but considering I had an ancestor whose will was probated in Virginia in 1683, it's very possible. And I know at least we were kindred spirits. As somebody who'd rather be in a deer stand or a duck blime when the sun comes
...up then to eat when I'm hungry. I just very much appreciate the good work that's been done by this act and I appreciate the opportunity to vote on honoring it today. Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate? It not, the question before the House is the adoption of House Resolution 206. All in favor vote aye, all opposed vote no. The clerk will open the vote. The clerk will lock the machine and record the vote. One hundred and nineteen having voted in the affirmative and none in the negative, House Resolution 206 has been adopted and will be ordered printed. House Resolution 342, the clerk will read.

Does the gentleman wish the resolution to be read? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes, sir. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Whereas the town of Salem, who was established in 1766 by members of the Moravian Church to administer their colony in North Carolina called Wachovia and the town became an important center for business and commerce in Northwest North Carolina and was incorporated by the Act of the North Carolina General Assembly in 1857. Whereas the town of Winston was established immediate north of Salem to serve as the county seat upon the formation of Forsythe County in 1849, was incorporated by Act of the North Carolina General Assembly in 1859, and experienced remarkable growth during the latter half of the 19th century. And Whereas, following decades of cooperation in civic affairs, the citizens of Winston and Salem voted to consolidate their municipal governments as the City of Winston-Salem by an Act of the North Carolina General Assembly, this consolidation took effect May 9th, 1913. And Whereas, the new town was led by Mayor Oscar B. Eaton and Aldermen E.D. Vaughn, C.M. Teen, G.E. Webb, P.S. Bailey, N.D. Dowdy, G.W. Edwards, H.F. Chaffner, and F.A. Foil, and has since been led by a succession of able elected officials. And Whereas, Winston-Salem was North Carolina's leading city during the 1920's and gave rise to such national corporations as R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, Wachovia Bank and Trust Company, Hanes Knitting, Hanes Dye and Finishing, and Piedmont Airlines. And Whereas, Winston-Salem served as a model for other cities during the civil rights era by establishing the North Carolina's first integrated fire house in 1951, peacefully desegregating the schools in 1957 and providing the first North Carolina victory of the sit-in movement in 1960. And Whereas, Winston-Salem has long been nationally recognized for leadership in the arts, having established the nation's first arts council in 1949. And service as home to the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, which was the nation's first State supported arts conservatory. And Whereas, Winston-Salem is known as the city of the arts and innovation and is home to numerous performing arts organizations, as well as the National Black Theater Festival, the Southeast Center for Contemporary Arts, Renola House Museum of American Art, the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts, Old Salem Museum and Gardens, the River Run International Film Festival, Digg's Gallery at Winston-Salem State University and Delta Fine Arts Center. And Whereas, Winston-Salem's civic leaders aggressively met the challenge...
...of a changing local economy in the 1990's by rebuilding the economy on knowledge based industries including establishing the Piedmont Triad Research Park in order to augment the city's traditional economic base with technology, medicine and finance. And Whereas, the City of Winston-Salem has been recognized as one of America's top 10 digital cities for 11 years in a row, is listed as one of America's 10 most livable cities by the Partners for Livable Cities, one of America's 50 best cities by Newsweek, one of America's best downtown by Forbes, a top 10 place to retire by CBS, a top 25 location for biotechnology by Business Facilities, and has been cited 22 other times in the past 10 years for the favorable business climate, quality of life, cost of living and other measures. And Whereas, 2013 marks the 100th anniversary of the consolidation of Winston and Salem, an occasion worthy of celebration by all North Carolineans. Now Therefore, be it resolved by the House of Representatives, Section 1, the House of Representatives honors the early leaders of Winston-Salem and joins with the citizens of Winston-Salem in celebrating the city's 100th anniversary. Section 2, the principal clerk shall transmit a certified copy of the resolution to the Mayor of the City of Winston-Salem. Section 3, this resolution is effective upon adoption. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Lambeth is recognized to debate the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you. North Carolina is knitted together from our many small towns to our large, urban cities. From our mountains to our coast. This is what makes North Carolina great. One hundred years ago, the leaders from two prominent industrial towns, Winston and the town of Salem came together and through their visionary leadership formed a new innovative and vibrant city, Winston-Salem. Winston-Salem thrived in the 20's as home to national corporations such as R.J. Reynolds, Wachovia Bank, Hanes and Piedmont Airlines. Winston-Salem grew as a leader in education with seven institutions of higher learning. As time has gone by, Winston-Salem has grown into a leader in healthcare, medical research and biotechnology. Winston-Salem is widely recognized as a leader in the arts with numerous museums, galleries and festivals, while establishing the nation's first arts council. Winston-Salem was recognized as one of America's top 10 digital cities, most livable cities, places to retire, and a top 25 location for biotechnology. Winston-Salem blends a diverse community with its Moravian heritage to form a great place to work and live. Thanks to the leadership of capable elected officials today and in the past. As a token of appreciation for the work of this House, the leadership of the city debated on whether they should bring Crispy Creme donuts or Dewey's sugar cookies. And I hope you recognize and have received by now your Dewey's cookies as a token of appreciation for all your efforts for what you're doing for the State of North Carolina. I commend the resolution for your approval. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Lambeth, I think the Chair and many members have a point of order. Where are the cookies? [laughter] [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. Speaker? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Brawley, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] If I may offer the body a point of information. They're on a table right next to the coffee and when you go to get your cup of coffee you will be able to get a nice can of cookies and having already opened them I will testify to the quality of these cookies. Thank you, Mr. Speaker. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The Chair understands you have had two cans already. Representative Terry, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Speak to the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The lady is recognized to debate the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, very much, Mr. Speaker.

And everything that the resolution says is true. It's wonderful. We are very, very proud of our city. But I stand here as one of the persons who has been spoken of in the resolution in lines 20 and 21. Back in 1951, Winston-Salem proudly boasted to hire African-American firefighters and one of...

Dr. Brown’s work in education help move us along as a state, as a nation, and her legacy along with so many other women, both across this state and this nation made an indelible impression on our world. And, so this month’s celebration hopefully will continue to uplift and reinforce our children, to the men and to the young women in particular to study the history, and to learn of the many significant contributions that women have made, and to recognize that many of the rights that we enjoy today were born out of struggle and sacrifice, of so many people who came before us. I’m pleased that members of the house to recommend the resolution to you. SPEAKER CHANGES Representative Michaux pleas state your purpose. SPEAKER CHANGES To speak on the resolution. SPEAKER CHANGES The gentleman is recognized to debate the resolution. SPEAKER CHANGES Mr. Speaker and ladies and gentleman of the house, during my lifetime women have had a profound effect on what has happened to me in the past and hopefully in the future. My mother who was a school teacher, had me reading from Grimm’s fairy tales and Aesop’s fables by the time I was four years old, and not only did she me to read but she taught me to understand what I was reading. And then, my wife a few years has put up with my shenanigans over the time including how I get up at three o’clock in the morning to figure out what devilment that I can bring to this body to keep you all on your toes. And then there is my daughter who has a son here today who’s my grandson as a Paige. All of these people have had a profound influence on my life, and I want to pay particular- my wife really has had to put up with something much as which as you all have had to put up with. The person that I want to talk about a bit is the honoraree in this resolution. My seatmate was right I knew Dr. Brown personally. In 1943, my mother and father decided I needed to be sent somewhere where I can broaden my horizons other than staying in Durham. And they decided to send me to Palmer Memorial Institute in Sedalia, North Carolina. And I gladly accepted it, and I really took a loss but when I got to the camp the first person I met was Dr. Brown. Now, in describing her; Ernie Barnes who was an artist has a portrait of a little ol’ African American woman standing at a bus stop with a bag of groceries in her arms, and she does not have the figure of a Venus de Milo nor, the smile of a Mona Lisa; but you can see in that person how she could become what we call the “Rock of Ages”, and that’s the way Dr. Brown was. She was short, dark, hair wasn’t straightest in the world, but, and she wasn’t the most beautiful woman in the world, but there was something about her that made you either like or dislike what you were about to get into. Well, you have to understand also that she had a resolve about her that indicated that she knew that you had the potential to achieve what you really wanted to achieve in life. And so I began my journey and my tutelage under Dr. Brown. Now, you have to understand that what she did was that she- everything at that school was done by the students. We ate in the dining hall family style, we had tables about eight to a table; the students waited on those tables, the students cleaned the building, they was the janitorial force, and many of us who were doing those jobs were paid a grand sum of five dollars a month. One of the things that happened to me was I got to be the headwaiter in the dining hall. I really wanted it because it paid ten dollars a month and it gave me the opportunity to wait on Dr. Brown’s table whenever she came to the dining hall. There are many, many stories, but one of the things that that school did, is it opened my eyes to many, many things. One of the two languages that was taught at that school was Latin and I took two years of Latin and one thing out of Latin was one of the things all of us learned was that Latin was a dead language….
327: Speaker 1: xx had killed Robinson and now it is killing me. That was what we learnt, the Illyad and the Odyssey. But Dr. Brown could wheedle money out of you like nobody else could because he had to do it to keep that school open. But all in all she taught us that we were somebody. Despite of all the vicissitudes we xx during that time John Crowe and all were there that we had an opportunity to succeed, where no others had succeeded before. One of the things that I learnt when I got what we call the palm of creed and it has remained with me all these years. It was something like this, I have to live with myself and so I want myself xxx to know . I want to be able as the days go by always to look myself straight in the eye .I don’t want to stand with the setting sun and hate myself for the things I have done. I don’t want to keep xx a lot of secrets about myself. To myself as I come and go as nobody else should know the kind of person I really am, I don’t want to dress up myself in sham. As others may never see, no, I know others may never know. So whatever happens I want to be self- respecting and conscience free. That was what Dr. Brown taught me that would be the energy that she gave me, that was what kept me going, through all problems before. I commend the resolution to you. Speaker changes: Representative Devries Ross please state your purpose. Speaker changes: To speak on the resolution. Speaker changes: The lady is recognized to speak on the resolution. Speaker changes: Thank you Mr. Speaker just to add a little bit more to the extraordinary history of North Carolina during Women’s History Month, the only states in the country that has three different women as Chief Justice of our Supreme Court. And as a matter of fact, Suzy Shroff who is elected Chief Justice by 94 percent of the vote in 1974 was the first female elected to be chief justice of the supreme court in the United States. Since that we had Rhonda Williams chief justice of the Supreme court for a short period of time and currently we have Sarah Parker who is chief justice of our supreme court and that’s just a little bit more of the history of some extraordinary women in North Carolina and I commend the resolution to you. Representative Brandel please state your purpose. Speaker changes: To speak on the resolution. Speaker changes: The gentleman is recognized to speak on the resolution. Speaker changes: Well, I have come to learn about Sarah Hawkins Brown in a very different way and it is kind of embarrassing because I live right there and all my life I would pass by this place Sarah Hawkins Brown and we were like, Oh! God, we don’t have to go there. And I didn’t know what it was. I don’t know what it was and last year my aunt Kay told me that she had been to school and she wanted me to . Still I did not know what she was talking about when she said Palmer Institute that was not on the plan. I did not know that was where I was going. And XX I asked her what it was, she was like, ‘you don’t know, about the Palm Institute, you don’t know. About Sarah Hawkins Brown had never heard of it and immediately she made an appointment, the very next day for me to go visit the school, and to learn about this lady named Sarah Hawkins Brown .And I am so glad that I went because I think that I was scheduled to be there for an hour, I spend all day there because I thought that like I had a connection with this lady named Sarah Hawkins Brown.Up here she was in the midst of the 1930s and the NOTE: Problem with the audio.Please can it be reloaded, so that I may complete this.
You will always have to fight for your dignity. And you can always do that. And you can always do that. I fell in love with this lady that day. And I commend this resolution to you. Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion? Further debate? If not, the question before the house. Is the adoption of house resolution 419. All in favor vote aye. All opposed vote no. The clerk will open the vote. The clerk will lock the machine and record the vote. 119 having vote in the affirmative and none in the negative. House bill resolution 419 has been adopted. Representative Mishode, did the chair get his math right? That when you entered that institution you were 12 or 13 years old. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I was 13 years old mr spreaker. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Resolution will be ordered printed. Ladies and gentlemen of the house, the chair recognized some familiar faces that may have come in after we recognized count officials in the past. I believe i see mayor Trinity. Carlton Bowes, and I see southern Mayor Jim Taylor for Mathews and all other town officials. So the chair would once again like to extend a warm welcome and I thank you for all the work that the mayors, town councilman and staff do for our great cities. Please stand again and let us welcome you. We're now gonna move to the calendar. House bill 191 the clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] House bill 191. A bill to be entitled, an act of moving, certain described properties from the corporate limits of the town of Grifton. ?? North Carolina in act. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Brown, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Speak on the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The house will come to order. The gentlemen is recognized to debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. Speaker. Ladies and gentlemen this is a very straight forward bill. In 2006, the town of Grifton was dealing with one piece of property on the outside of Grifton. The owner of the property went to the town of Grifton, to ask for annexation because the property was looking to hold a daycare center on that particular piece of property. In order to be able to house a daycare center the health code said that it had to be tied into a municipal sewer system. Unfortunately that daycare center never came into fruition. The property was never tied into the municipal sewer system. And therefore, the owner went back to the town of Grifton in September of last year asking to be de-annex. The town board voted on it, and it passed unanimously. And the town board, the town manager actually brought this to me to provide this de-annexation. I ask for your support with this bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate. If not, the question before the house is the passage of house bill 191 on its second reading. All those in favor will vote aye, all those oppose will vote no. Clerk will open the vote. Clerk will lock the machine and record the vote. 116 having vote in the affirmative and none in the negative. House bill 191 is passed its second reading and as the roll call bill will remain on the calendar. House bill 193 the clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Committee substitute for house bill 193. A bill has been signed in act to expand the premisable uses of the local Mehklabore county and city of Charlotte local taxes. ?? Senator of North Carolina in acts. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Samuelson please state your purpose.[SPEAKER CHANGES] Speak on the bill.[SPEAKER CHANGES] The lady is recognized to debate the bill.[SPEAKER CHANGES] Ladies and gentlemen of the house, I only wish this bill was easy as the one representative Brown just presented. While this is a local bill, it does have statewide interest. But basically this is still a local bill. Our city councilmen to ask us originally to consider a one cent tax in the food and beverage tax in order to cover two new options that they would like to spend money on. We have declined ..
To do the new tax but we would like to allow them to use their existing tax for those same two purposes. There are no new taxes on this bill. There is no new revenue, state or local. There are just two new options for the Charlotte city council, who’s joined us here today to consider. One of those options would be to consider funding for some improvements to a stadium that is named Bank of America Stadium, otherwise known as Panther Stadium. And secondly, to allow them to use some funding for amateur sports. Once again, there’s no new taxes, there’s no new revenue. It’s just new options for the local city council in Charlotte to consider using the money they already have. I urge your support. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Luebke, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. To speak on the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Gentleman is recognized to debate the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I’ll be brief because I’ve already spoken twice on this. Once in Government and once in Finance and my side didn’t prevail in either place so I can read votes. But I will say this. I think this is corporate welfare. This is welfare for the Carolina Panthers at a time when we cannot afford as a General Assembly to be doing this sort of thing. Now some would say, and my friend Representative Samuelson said, well it’s not really a tax increase because we’re just shifting around the uses of the Occupancy Tax. But the fact of the matter is, if there weren’t an Occupancy Tax in place, in order to help the Panthers there would have to be a new tax. So there’s just a supplanting of money that otherwise would go to the convention center, is now being shifted to the Panthers. The second thing that I think is problematic, besides the fact that I don’t think this state can afford to do what the bill does. Is that you’re taking away the authority, if you look on page 2, it take away the authority of the Visitors Bureau. And I can tell you from my years on the Finance Committee as the Chair of Finance Committee that the Occupancy Taxes have been requested by Visitor Bureaus in order to promote the town or promote a particular action in the town, in the city. And as I understand it as far back as 1989, the Charlotte Visitor’s Bureau asked for an Occupancy Tax to build a convention center. Now, it’s being shifted over tot eh Panthers and the question is being raised in Finance Committee, well what if the convention center needs money? And I don’t really know that there was a clear answer to that because the convention center, the Visitors Bureau is basically out of the loop. If you read the bill, it’s the city of Charlotte that’s now controlling the Occupancy Tax. That’s not what occupancy taxes are supposed to be for. So, for all those reasons, I think it’s welfare for a very profitable outfit and I am going to vote against it and hopefully you will join me. Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate? If not, the question before the House is the passage of the House Committee Substitute to House Bill 193 on its second reading. All in favor will say aye. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Aye. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Let’s do that again. All in favor will say, it’s a local bill ladies and gentlemen this is a voice vote. Here we go. All in favor will say aye. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Aye. [SPEAKER CHANGES] All opposed will say no. [SPEAKER CHANGES] No. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The ayes appear to have it. The ayes do have it. The House Committee Substitute to House Bill 193 passes its second reading without objection. It will be read a third time. [SPEAKER CHANGES] General Assembly of North Carolina enacts. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate? If not, the question before the House is the passage of the House Committee Substitute to House Bill 193 on its third reading. All in favor will say aye. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Aye. [SPEAKER CHANGES] All opposed will say no. The ayes appear to have it. The ayes do have it. The House Committee Substitute to House Bill 193 has passed its third reading and will be sent to the Senate. House Bill 229, the clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Committee Substitute to House Bill 229, a bill to be entitled an act to authorize the towns of Holden Beach and Ocean Isle Beach to accumulate funds in a Capital Reserve Fund for the purpose of canal dredging and maintenance for a period of 10 years. General Assembly of North Carolina enacts. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Iler, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To explain the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. This is totally a pure local bill and there’s no new taxes or fees involved. Holden Beach and Ocean Isle Beach have canal subdivisions where the canals come off the inter-coastal waterway, little finger way canals behind people’s homes and everyone has their docks and boats and so forth behind their homes.

So I'll be voting no on this bill today, and would ask you to consider my position. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Cunningham please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I offer an amendment Mr. Speaker. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The lady is recognized as setting forth an amendment the Clerk will read it. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Cunningham moves to amend the bill on page 1 line 14 by adding the following at the end of the line. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The lady is recognized to debate the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] If you will look on your desk I passed out two pieces of literature to support what I was referencing to on yesterday. If you flip on the backside where it says American Association of Nurse Anesthetists and you come down to the second, to the first paragraph at the end. It says eleven researchers also stated that there is no evidence in the scientific literature to suggest that anesthesia care is safer when a nurse anesthetist is supervised by a physician. This study was done, and also pointed out that people living in rural and other areas of the United States where anesthesiologists often choose not to practice for economic reasons. The safe and cost effective anesthesiology care provided by nurse anesthetists has been a mainstay in these areas for more than a hundred years, ensuring millions of patients have access to surgical, obstetrical, trauma stabilization, and diagnostic procedures. Now, what I was looking to do with the amendment was to exempt out rural hospitals. What we reference to as CHX's which are critical access hospitals and it is 23 total in the state of North Carolina. Possibly anesthesiologists may not be in that area to supervise and in some cases doctors do not want to supervise in these low areas where there's not a high need for anesthesiologists or that service. Now there is not a physical note in the general assembly. On that second document if you look at table seven and it says delivery model and it says average billed amount and it says the anesthesiologist only a thousand dollars? And if you come down to the bottom. If you look and it says CNA only that's a thousand dollars. It's not a significant difference in it, but there are different models. Different models that you operate and you would see a significant cost elevated for the physicians supervised. So there is a cost even though there is not a physical note. I ask you to please support the amendment. Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Moore please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] For motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized for a motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. Speaker I would ask the chair to rule the amendment out of order as being not being germane to the bill, and ask to be heard as to the basis of that motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to debate the motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. Speaker if you read the amendment to this bill what you have to look at what the current bill does. The current bill does is codify existing law. What this proposed amendment would do would be to change existing law which goes beyond the scope of the bill, frankly, I would think almost really a title change would be in order to do this, but regardless I would ask that Mr. Speaker the amendment be ruled out or order. [SPEAKER CHANGES] ??? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Moore the ??? understands the gentleman wishes to withdraw the motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I withdraw the motion with the understanding that the member is going to withdraw her amendment. Yes. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Cunningham please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] At this current time I wish to withdraw the amendment at this moment for us to look at it further. Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank objection so ordered. We are now back on the bill. Further discussion. Further debate. If not the question before the House is the passage of the House Committee Substitute to House Bill 181 on its third reading. All those in favor will vote "Aye" all those opposed vote "No." The Clerk will open the vote. The clerk ??? machine will record the vote. 89 having voted in the affirmative and 27 in the negative the House Committee Substitute Bill to House Bill 181 has passed its third reading and will be sent to the Senate. House Bill 243. The Clerk will read. If the Clerk will yield. Representative Stevens please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I want to be heard on a motion. Mr. Speaker. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The lady is recognized for a motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I would move that we take house Bill 243 and continue it till next Tuesday on third reading. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Without objection so ordered.
Now for case 3 on the calendar, House bill 170, the clerk will read it [speaker changes] Committee substitute for House bill 170, the bill entitled An Act to hearten insurance to enforce certain provisions of the Public Health Service Act by requiring insurance companies to comply with those provisions within this state. The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts. [speaker changes] Representative Brawley, please state your purpose [speaker changes] To speak on the bill. [speaker changes] The gentleman is recognized to debate the bill [speaker changes] Thank you, Mr. Speaker, Ladies and Gentlemen. House bill 170 deals with the Public Health Service Act, which we all know is the Affordable Healthcare Act. It is federal law. We're going to be obeying it whether we pass the bill or not. The issue in the bill is by passing this bill, we put the North Carolina Department of Insurance in control of settling claims, settling issues and disputes on the laws in the Affordable Care Act. If we don't pass the bill, then the Secretary of the Federal Department of Health and Human Services will enforce the provisions in the state and there's on your desk, there are four states they've already sent the folks in to set up regulations in addition to their own Department of Insurance, handling any issues dealing with the Affordable Care Act. I encourage your support for the bill. We said we'd obey the Constitution. This simply puts us obeying the Constitution and enforcing the laws in North Carolina rather than letting the federal government come in and do it for us. Thank you. [speaker changes] Further discussion, further debate. If not, the question before the House is the passage of House Committee substitute to House Bill 170 on its second reading. All in favor vote aye. All opposed vote no. The clerk will open the vote. All members wishing to record, please do so at this time. The clerk will let the machine record the vote. 115 having voted in the affirmative and 2 in the negative, the House committee substitute to House bill 170 has passed its second reading, and without objection, will be read a third time. [speaker changes] The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts. [speaker changes] Further discussion, further debate. If not, the question before the House is the passage of House Committee substitute for House Bill 170 on its third reading. All in favor say aye. All opposed say no.The aye's have it. The House Committee substitute for House bill 170 has passed its third reading. it will be sent to the Senate. Senate bill 20. The clerk will read it .[speaker changes] House Committee substitute for Senate bill 20, a bill entitled An Act to provide limited immunity from prosecution for certain drug related offenses committed by an individual who seeks medical assistance for a person experiencing a drug-related overdose and certain drug-related offenses committed by an individual experiencing drug-related overdose and in need of medical assistance and to provide immunity to civil and criminal liability for practitioners who prescribe an opiate antagonist to certain third parties and to certain individuals who administer an opiate antagonist to persons experiencing a drug-related overdose. The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts. [speaker changes] Representative Murray,. please state your purpose [speaker changes] To debate the bill [speaker changes] The gentleman is recognized to debate the bill [speaker changes] ` Thank you Mr. Speaker. This bill addresses a situation to allow certain situations when there's an overdose of a person. It allows them to get administered Naloxone. Naloxone is an opioid antagonist. So we're talking about drugs that when you overdose on things like Oxycotin, Oxycodone, Vicotin, Hydrocodone, those opioids, taking Nalaxone instantly bumps those opioids off their opioid receptors, and can save the patient's life. We've also added in this legislation if in a situation a couple kids, one of them overdoses, the other kid picks the kid up and runs him to the emergency room, and they happen to have drugs on their person, it allows them to not get prosecuted for bringing their friend and trying to save their life - in limited amounts. It just basically encourages kids to help their friends get access to care instead of letting them stop breathing and die of opioid overdose. that's the intent of the legislation. Hence the Good Samaritan language. I believe Representative Pricey Harrison has an amendment, which I have no problem with the amendment. I'll let her explain it, but I'd appreciate your support and I'll gladly answer any questions about opioid antagonists. [speaker changes] Ladies and Gentlemen
Before we continue and recognize Representative Harrison, the Chair would like to recognize and thank the doctor of the day. The doctor of the day is Larry Lawrence from Morehad City. Doctor Lawrence, thank you for your service to the House. Representative Harrison, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To send for an amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The lady is recognized to send forth an amendment. The clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Harrison moves to amend the bill on page 1 line 7 by deleting the word "and" and on page one line 11 "by". [SPEAKER CHANGES] The lady is recognized to debate the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Ladies and gentlemen of the house, as Representative Murry mentioned, This amendment would add similar immunity for under-age individuals where one person might be involved in alcohol poisoning and a companion or friend wants to bring that individual in for medical treatment. This will just give immunity to that individual who might not otherwise be subjected to our alcohol laws relating to consumption and possession under the age of 21. It does, unfortunately, change the title because it includes this provision on alcohol-related emergencies. But I'm not aware of any opposition, and I would appreciate your support. Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate on the amendment. If not, the question before the house is the passage of the amendment sent forth by Representative Harrison for the House committee substitute for Senate bill 20. All is in favor will vote "Aye". All is opposed, vote "No". The Clerk will open the vote. All members wishing to record, please do so at this time. Clerk will opt to machine record the vote. 113 having voted in the affirmative and 5 in the negative, the amendment passes. We're now back on the bill. Representative Duane Hall, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Mr. Speaker, I was in the chamber but did not get back in my seat in time for House bill 181. I'd like to be recorded as a "No" vote on that, please. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman will be recorded as having voted "No". Representative Brandon, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Ask the bill's sponsor a question, please. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Murry, does the gentleman yield? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I yield. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman yields. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Chair. Representative Murry, I just wanted make clear because I have not had a chance to read the whole bill. But, when you clarify, is this for just folks that, now that we've made the amendment, that are on opiates and alcohol, or is this all drug-related offenses? I'm confused on what's allowable and not what's allowable. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Certainly. In Section 1 of the legislation, the limited immunity applies to misdemeanor drugs, misdemeanor possession as defined in the general statutes, felony - There's definitions of possession of less than one gram of cocaine, less than one gram of heroin, and various subsections. So, within the general statutes, we define what limits you can possess to have a max min type crime situation. And so this would allow immunity for people with that minor small amounts of possession who happen to bring someone in in an overdose situation to be immune from prosecution. And it's defined in Section 1. It's less than a gram of cocaine, less than a gram of heroine, and various other, I think it's based on the number of pills that they might have in their possession. It's not what you would consider a dealer coming in with a backpack full of heroin or a backpack full of cocaine. It's a much smaller possession. [SPEAKER CHANGES] ?? I got that. ?? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Faircloth, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To send forth an amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to send forth an amendment. The clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Faircloth moves to amend the bill on page 1, lines 22 and 23 by removing the following. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to debate the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. This bill originally was filed by Senator Bingham. The North Carolina Chiefs Association had a problem with the language on line 21 if you happen to have the bill in front of you. It reads, "A person acting in good faith who seeks medical assistance or and individual experiencing a drug-related overdose and who did not physically supply the
...to the person experiencing the drug related overdose, to not be prosecuted, etcetera. That's the protection for the person who is, let's says, two students are in a dorm room and they indulge in some small amount of drugs and one of them gets too much and it becomes an overdose and they begin to have symptoms and the other one chooses to call for help for them, which could certainly save their life, then that person calling for help will not be prosecuted for the small amount of drugs, less than a gram. Again, as I said before, if it were a backpack, that would change the whole thing. The chief felt that that wording should be changed and the part that said “and who did not physically supply the drugs to the person experiencing the drug related overdose” was added in there at the request of the Chief Association. Now, in talking to the chief yesterday, and talking with Senator Bingham and talking with others who are concerned about this real problem of overdose being so dangerous, the chiefs then agreed to remove that piece that was put in there for them. What my amendment does is move the language back to what it originally was and it will now read “a person acting in good faith who seeks medical assistance for an individual experiencing a drug related overdose, shall not be prosecuted, etcetera. It takes out that language that was put in there that would have held that student in that room who made that call, responsible if he was found with a small amount of drugs. It's more important to save lives than it is to worry about arresting someone for a minor amount of drugs. I encourage you to support the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate on the amendment. Representative Murray, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I would just ask that you support the amendment offered by Representative Faircloth. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate on the amendment? If not, the question before the House is the passage of the amendment sent forth by Representative Faircloth to the House Committee Substitute for Senate Bill 20. All those in favor vote aye. All oppose, vote no. The clerk will open the vote. All members wishing to record, please do so at this time. The clerk will lock machine and record the vote. 117 having voted the affirmative and 1 in the negative. The amendment passes. We're back on the bill Representative Davis, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Ask the bill sponsor a question. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Murray, does the gentleman yield? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I certainly yield. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman yields. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you. Could you please tell me if either law enforcement or the district attorneys weighed in on this as far as favor or disfavor on the bill, please. [SPEAKER CHANGES] They have weighed in. This is a Senate bill that came over so there were a couple of committee hearings all through the process and through J committee and I know they worked with Representative Faircloth on certain issues as well so there's has been plenty of input. This is, by the way, this legislation, I forgot to mention, and this might help to answer your question as well, this is one of the recommendations from the child fatality task force. This is a recommended legislation that came out of there and it's part of their Lazarus project to help address opiate overdoses. This has been relatively vetted over during the interim so there has been plenty of input from the stake holders on this legislation. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Faircloth, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To speak on the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to speak on the bill as amended. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Just for information, this bill...or it is now supported by the Chief Association and also the Sheriff’s Association and I urge you to support the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate. Representative Lucas, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Inquiry of the sponsor. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Murray, does the gentleman yield? [SPEAKER CHANGES] Yes, I yield. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman yields. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Representative Murray. I support the concept but I need to ask a question. Are we, in fact, condoning an illegal activity when we support this bill? [SPEAKER CHANGES] I would say we are condoning saving lives by encouraging people to seek treatment when it's available instead of being fearful of criminal prosecution in limited circumstances. We want to make that sure that instead of instilling a culture of fear in this situation, we want to instill a culture of saving lives.
and so without fear of prosecution. I think that's the ultimate goal of the bill. We don't want to reward bad behavior and encourage people to get overdoses, but at the same time if you're in an overdose situation and we can save that kid's life and I think we should do that without fear of criminal prosecution for limited possession amounts. And I can tell you, prescription drug abuse is a big issue for students, and Rep. Hamilton and I are sponsoring a study on prescription drug abuse, and I think it's something we really need to look at in a broader context. But in the short time, if we can help save lives with this legislation, then I think that's what we should focus on. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate? If not, the question before this House is passage of the House committee substitute to Senate Bill 20 as amended on its second reading. All those in favor vote Aye. All those opposed vote No. The Clerk will open the vote. [PAUSE] The Clerk will lock the machine and record the vote. One hundred fourteen having voted in the affirmative and four in the negative, the House committee substitute to Senate Bill 20 as amended has passed its second reading. It will remain of the calendar due to the amendment sent forth by Rep. Harrison. Senate Bill 33: The Clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] House committee substitute to Senate Bill 33: A bill to entitled "An Act to require licensing boards to consider certain factors before denying licenses to applicants with criminal records as required by the Joint Legislative/Administrative Procedural Oversight Committee." The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Rep. Stevens, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] As the title suggested, this came to us from the adminis -- [SPEAKER CHANGES] The lady is recognized to debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. This came to us from the Legislative Oversight Committee on Administrative Procedures, and what it does is say that the fact that you have a criminal record will not automatically be grounds to bar you from getting a license to practice various professions. It can be a factor, but there are like seven things set out that board should consider. There is a provision that in the event there are certain crimes or we can't have criminals in certain professions, we'll put that within their licensing statute. But for the overall purpose, just because you have a criminal record doesn't mean that you can't be licensed. They're to consider the age at which the offense occurred, what you've done since that time, how it affects your ability to perform this particular job, and the length of time. So they'll simply consider those things. We'd ask for your support. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Rep. Stevens, the Chair understands you may an amendment? Is that amendment withdrawn? [SPEAKER CHANGES] We need to send forth an amendment. I believe amendment has to do with an effective date. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Rep. Stevens is recognized to send for an amendment. The Clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Rep. Stevens moves to amend the bill on Page 2, Line 7, by re-writing the line to read -- [Clerk's reading skipped.] [SPEAKER CHANGES] The lady is recognized to debate the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. [SPEAKER CHANGES] All the amendment does is say that the act will be effective on July 3, 2013, and applies to anybody who applies for licensure after that date. The Senate just forgot to put in a date. And I ask for you to support the amendment. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Further discussion, further debate on the amendment. If not, the question before the House is the passage of the amendment to the House committee substitute to Senate Bill 33. All those in favor will vote Aye. All opposed vote No. The Clerk will open the vote. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The Clerk lock the machine and record the vote. One hundred eighteen having voted in the affirmative and none in the negative, the amendment passes. We are now back on the bill as amended. Rep. Brandon, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To speak on the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Well, I couldn’t let this opportunity go by without first of all saying I love this bill in terms of the message, and I just want to make sure that everybody understands that the same thing that w'ere doing for these commission is the same thing for all regular citizens across the state of North Carolina by making sure that we don't allow that your mistakes in your past become a curse for you for the rest of your life. And surely if we can do it for commissions that are running the boards of North Carolina, surely our citizens can be afforded this same opportunity and respect. Thank you.
