Thank you Mr. Chair members of the committee this is a combination of a bill dealing with claims that came over from the senate what I believe unanimous support coupled with a bill that passed out of the house with unanimous support dealing with LMENCO, issues dealing with some their salary and appointment issues as well as making the change when there are mergers and separations and the like, because we no longer require unanimous support the counties two thirds of the county is also a section that further clarifies the process by which single county disengagement can occur providing for both rules as well as temporary rules which was a compromise with some folks to move that process along another section of the bill is dealt with in section six with the bill that passed the house unanimously as well that provides for the removal of the sunset on electronic supervision of certain facilities and this is also apply this [xx] amount in various springs or home which are very well aware section seven is just dealing with distribution issue of single stream funding to the LME MCOs and the final section eight was a provision that was in the budget that was sponsored by Representative we couldn't get it in the budget itself, it needed a little further refinement. We've achieved refinement to that and we've placed that provision, it's a non-money provision into section 8 which also deals with Intellectual Development Disabled Individuals who are currently on the waiver waiting list so know of any opposition at this point Mr. Chairman, be happy to answer any questions Are there inquiries from the committee or discussion on the Bill before you? if not Representative Stam moves the proposed committee substitute to Senate Bill 371 we get a favorable report unfavorable to the original is there any further discussion or debate? Seeing none the question before the committee is the motion the gentleman from Wake the proposed committee substitute for Senate Bill 371 be given a favorable report those in favor say aye? Those oppose will say no? In the chair the ayes have it, the motion caries. Members we are going to move now to Senate Bill 391, PCS was distributed to members last evening pursuant to the rule and therefore it's declared appropriate before the committee. Representative McElraft is recognized to explain the bill. Thank you Mr. Chair, members of the committee. This is the Deja vu County Omnibus Bill that you've heard before a couple of times and it even got to the floor. What happened is we chipped out the recycling fee provision

on the floor, Representative Stam had asked us to do that and we did take it out and when we got the bill back after it went through this committee got it back to the floor, we realized senate was not just take it up, because that part was taken out, it was no longer eligible. So, Senator Tard agreed to let us support of his bill sent it back over for concurrence is senate bill 391 it has three 30 senate and it has that one area where the counties can collect up to $250 in cash before they have to I believe chart to take it to the bank. It just saves the counties money but now they have to take it to the bank every month just a year now even if it $5 so you had this bill before and I just would like to you to prove it so we can give it on our proper concurrence. Members are there any inquiries for the Bill sponsor? If not, Representative Torbett moves that the Proposed Committee Substitute, Senate Bill 391 be given favorable report. Is there further special debate on the motion from the gentleman from from Gaston? Seeing none the question before the committee is the motion to give proposed committee substitute to Senate Bill 391 a favorable report unfavorable to the original bill, those in favor will say aye? Those opposed will say no? In the opinion of the Chair the ayes have it, the motion is adopted. Members and members of the public for your planning purposes the Chair intend in a moment to close the Committee On Rules in recess. The Committee On Rules will remain in recess until the legislative House session today is also placed on recess at which time or five minutes after the House goes in a recess the Committee On Rules will reconvene. Representative Stam, for what purpose? Just to the guide up to the respective caucuses, are you intending to request that the edit that today held, the ones we've already passed so that people could be thinking about that. Representative Stam, the chair has not specifically spoken with representative Fischer who I believe is the acting minority leader in this [xx] the chair pursuing to the protocol established by speaker [xx] will speak to her when we get to the floor and we'll make that determination at that time. I oppose as I don't have the answer I have not I had time to speak with her but [xx] a question, the gentleman is recognized.

Members representative Floyd for what purpose do you seek recognition the gentleman is recognized [xx] [xx] for another representative floid let the chair be a little bit more clear it will be the Chairs intent after conversation with both the majority and the minority leaders to consider which bills the chair thinks can be handled expeditiously if added to the calendar today and or which bill having multiday requirement for vote to be taken if there are what we call in legislative [xx] a two day bill Chair will seek to add them to today's calendar members and member of the public who probably have an interest in this is bill it is the Chairs intent to move the senate bill 513 which is known as 2015 format be removed from today's house calendar and moved forward to the committee in rules which will be considered doing both the house recess and when committee reconvenes, are there any further inquires?
