Senate bill 374 the clerk will read. Mr. speaker. For what purpose does the gentleman from Wayne Representative Bill rise? For a point, you figure out my point but.

The gentleman is recognized for something. Representative [xx] he is not in chamber due to a senate committee can we temporary displace that bill? Bill be temporary displaced but this may be a very short session it appears. We have only one matter before the body is House Bill 312, House Bill 312 the clerk will read. Representative Presnell, House Bill 312, a bill to be entitled enact to allow a certain kind of sheriff officers to contract for the purchase of food and food service supplies for counted detention facilities without being subject to the requirement of certain state purchasing contract laws General Assembly of North Carolina enacts. What purpose does the lady from Yancey Representative Presnell rise? To speak on the bill. The lady is, I believe this is a motion to concur and the lady would have to make the motion to concur with the three amendments. Does the lady wish to be recognized for a motion as to amendment number one? Yes I do. The lady is recognized for a motion. Thank you. I ask that you vote yes on this, this is giving the sheriffs the ability to purchase their food where is the least expensive for the taxpayers. Every school district in the state is exempt and these counties are also asking to be exempt from this contract requirements, thank you. Is the lady moving adaption of amendment one? Yes. A concurrence of amendment one? Yes. The clerk will read amendment one. Senator Curtis moves to amend the bill on page one line 11 by inserting the word [xx] between those word. For what purpose does the lady wish to specifically debate amendment one any further? No, I'm fine with it the way it is. For what purpose does the lady from Wake Representative Hurley rise? To speak on the whole bill [xx] amendments. Does the lady wish to debate the first amendment before the body or does the lady wish to wait? Well actually, let me explain how this goes. This is a little different because what we are doing is we are and madam clerk, the Chairs understanding is that we simply vote on the the three amendments. So, the Chair was correct, we vote on the three amendments, we don't actually have a final vote on the final product if you were the final bill. So, we have three vote from three amendments adopted by the senate because the bill wasn't in engrossed. So, if the lady or any other member wants to debate any particular amendment the chair will give some latitude if an amendment. If for example if the lady wants to talk about thing that might be in the second or third amendments in the answer to time the chair will give some latitude. So, the lady is recognized to debated the amendment one and is given some discretion to discuss the other things. Thank you Mr. Speaker. Again when this bill particular come to us, it was originally was for one county and when the procurement process grows is, that you get your best pricing by sending things out on bill and what this does is if I by-passes the state procurement laws to the utmost degree. There are things in place that if you need and there is anybody else to purchase from, you can sole source but this allowing him to just soe source purchases is a part for sheriffs but is not good policy. We need to look at good procurement policy and follow it in all levels state government and when you start by-passing this processes and you have another vendor that wants to do something in the sheriff's department, there is no avenue for them to be able to participate. I say let's vote against all all these amendments and concur. For what purpose does the gentleman from Durham, Representative Hall arise. Speak to the first amendment. The gentleman has the floor to debate amendment one. Thank you Mr. Speaker, I'll make it very short and appreciate the Representative Presnell's presentation of the amendment. She did say one thing that it would result in the lowest cost that's not a specification of this deal to get the lowest course and there's no procedure that requires it or provides for it. So, it does not provide that safe guard and additionally if you may recall when the bill first came to us, we discussed whether or not even required people to make an effort to buy locally and it doesn't do that either. So, it doesn't provide local and it doesn't provide best cost as standard in the bill to be met, thank you. Further discussion further debate on the motion to concur on senate amendment number one for house committee substitute for House Bill 312. Seeing none the question before the house is the concurrence in senate amendment number one for house committee substitute for House Bill 312.

This point will move to senate amendment number two on House Bill 312. The lady from Yancey is recognized for a motion. Motion to concur. The lady from Yancey has moved that the house do concur with senate amendment number two to House Bill 312. Further discussion or debate on the, the chair apologizes.

The amendment now being read and properly before us. For what purpose does the gentleman from Durham, Representative Hall rise? Speak on the second amendment. The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. This amendment not the second amendment Mr. Speaker but given the way the senate has sent this back up, I think I'm obligated again to stand and reiterate the comments or I won't repeat them, but just know that by adding additional counties this is still a bad process and so I would ask that you not support it. Is there further discussion or debate on senate amendment number two for house committee substitute for House bill 312? Seeing non, the question before the house is the adoption of senate amendment number two for house committee substitute of House Bill 312.

To speak on the amendment. The gentleman has the floor to debate the amendment. Thank you Mr. Speaker, same comments for this amendment is on the first two and I'm sure that the sheriff from Henderson and Transylvania County will not be putting me on their Christmas list, thank you.

For what purpose does the gentleman from Wayne, Representative Bell rise? To speak on the bill. The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill.

Thank you Mr. Speaker, members of the house. If this language looks familiar it absolutely is, a lot of this information actually came from the regulatory reform bill. It was vetted properly in our committees and it was vetted here on the house floor similar to the senate. As you know a lot of regulatory reforms pieces came back in different bills, in different shapes, in different forms. This information here on what was the bill center from the senate that was regarding the same issue which is in the regulatory form bill and at this time Mr. Speaker I wanted to send forth an amendment. The gentlemen from Wayne is recognized to send forth an amendment the clerk will read. page one line two through page two line eight by reviving the [xx] the gentleman from [xx] to debate the amendment. Thank you, Mr. Speaker, the information in the amendment is that our language that was [xx] has been invaded by a number of entities and a number of our people here in the chamber to have concerns with these issues and this is what we agreed upon and any time that you're dealing with fishing [xx] to it and you can walk away at least someone happy that you done a good job as for thefor the amendment For what purpose does the lady from Gilford Representative Harrison arise? To debate the amendment. T The lady has the forward to debate the amendment Thank you Mr. Speaker ladies and gentlemen of the House I agree completely with Representative Bill when you the step onto the location versus commercial fishing, it's never a good time and always contentious, so I I just want to offer perspective that we had [xx] and arch in the [xx] committee a couple of weeks ago here in about the controversial Fishing provisions that is in place in the budget or actually Senate bill 374 and they relate to the joint force man agreement and the fore hour log, now regarding to joint the force men agreement as was explained to us, we are the only Atlantic estate that does not take advantage of that federal funding, we've lost out on $15 million so far, right now that's about $400, 000 year and what that money does is that it supplements the enforcement of our fisheries rule regulations and also this was actually performed by Federal officers right now and it seems like it makes a lot more sense to have our state enforcement officers enforcing these just it would be nice to the fishermen and most of the vote to the local fishery issues rather than have the federal police on that so we are missing on that opportunity we are missing on the federal funding I was reminded that then we heard that that dolphin killed earlier in January and February the National fisheries called the planned out where The $250, 000 so we can help deal with the stranded dolphins, dying dolphins and because we didn't have the joint enforcement agreement. They gave the $250, 000 to South Carolina which is so hard to deal with the dying dolphins so what I was explaining in this amendment is that there is something in here that we shall not ensure until joint enforcement agreement and for the reasons stated, the other thing is the issue about studying we heard about that from the head of the division in fisheries he says this issue and other issues have never been studied to death so probably come up with the same recommendation and they will be equally contentious and I think we ought to just make a decision and I appreciate the fact that the parties want to come to the table and maybe work something out but in the end I do have a problem with this continuing to refuse to enforce the joint enforcement agreement, For those reasons I would urge you to vote no. Thank you. Members we are debating the amendment, for what purpose does the gentleman from New Hanover representative Davis arise? To speak on the amendment. The gentleman has forward to debate the amendment. Thank you Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the house this amendment is extremely important to all the commercial fishermen that I represent in New Hanover county where it would include Carolina beach, Kure beach and Wrightsville beach. I would also say that this amendment has the support of the Recreational Fishermen Alliance of North Carolina and also the North Carolina Fisheries Association, so I would ask you to please vote for the amendment. Thank you For what purpose does the gentleman from Person, Rep. Yarborough rise? To ask a question from the bill sponsor, amendment sponsor. Does the gentleman from Wayne yield to the gentleman from Person? I do. He yields. In looking at the amendment the only thing that really changes this from the original bill is that it calls for a study that includes the charter captains, is that correct? I would ask you to direct your question to Representative Millis. Would the gentleman from Pender yield to the gentleman from Person? most certainly, Mr. Speaker. You don't have to repeat your question Representative Yarborough[sp?], this bill here or this amendment that's before us actually does achieve the same

intent of the actual bill that is currently on your Dashboard, but it actually has a study to look at this a little further. The reason why we're on this amendment is to put it back like the language of this chamber actually passed out of house bill 760. We vetted this, we talked about this, we passed this. This amendment will put it back to the House's position on this matter and actually does study it and the reason being for all that is because these measures, these two measures were put into a budget document without enough debate in regard to the constituents whether recreational charter or commercial and all we're doing is taking a step back just look at this before we actually do something and get ahead of [xx] can severely harm our constituents and potentially the fishery as well Further discussion, further debate on amendment 1 sent forward by the gentleman from Wayne. Seeing none, the question before the house is the passage of amendment 1 sent forward by the gentleman from Wayne. Those favouring adoption of the amendment will vote aye! Those opposed will vote no! The clerk will open the vote. The clerk will lock the machine and record the vote. With 79 having voted in the affirmative and 23 in the negative, the amendment is adopted. Further discussion, further debate on Senate Bill 374. For what purpose does the lady from Guilford Representative Harrison rise. To briefly debate the bill. The lady has the floor to debate the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker and I apologize for not raising this issue when we were debating 760, there was a lot about that bill to talk about but I do I do think it's problematic when you refuse to allow The Director of The Marine Fisheries Division to enter into the joint enforcement agreement and so I will continue to urge you to vote no on this bill, thank you. For what purpose does the gentleman from Pender Representative Millis arise? To briefly speak on the bill. The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. Ladies and gentlemen, this bill as currently amended as something that is very good for all of our constituents here and I just want to spell a little bit in this truth so that you can also feel good about your vote on this bill no matter how it is I would encourage you to vote for it. Let me share something with you, the aspects of the joint enforcement agreement we actually had a a good exchange recently in the NER Appropriations Committee with the Director of the Division of Marine Fisheries about this issue, and the issue is entering into an agreement with the federal government to take federal money in the strings that may be attached with that, now again if the agreement is proper and it's upheld properly we have a director that will uphold it maybe you can feel good about that but I tell you one thing my constituents made it clear to me that every time you take federal dollars there are strings attached with it, and the fear is this, is that if the federal government were actually to pass policy by the US fisher wildlife you would have state employees potentially with this joint enforcement agreement actually enforcing state, forcing federal policy that may not win through the acts of congress that would affect our constituents only aspects of teaming up with the federal government. In addition our stay is actually been a law suit before against US fisher wildlife and actually has won. Now you enter into a joining force agreement is it wise to do that? It's only a few 100000 dollars ladies and gentlemen and I think that we can actually do what's best for the management of our fisheries by actually separating the purview between the two agencies and I think this is a bad measure that needs further vetting instead of being bedded into a bunch of document. I ask you to support this measure as it's good for the fishery and for our constituents. for a purpose as the gentleman from your handover Representative Davis arise. Speak on the bill. The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker. Ladies and gentlemen of the house for the same reason I gave in support of the amendment I would ask you also to consider those in support of the bill and please vote green. Thank you. Further discussion or further debate on SB 374? Seeing none, the question before the House is the passage of the Senate Committee Substitute for SB 374 on its Second Reading. Those who favor passage will vote Aye, those opposed will vote No, the Clerk will open the vote. The Clerk will lock the machine and record the vote with 78 having voted in the Affirmative and 24 in the Negative Senate Committee Substitute for SB 374 as amended has passed its Second Reading.
