The gentleman has the floor to continue debating the bill. Thank you I would like to clear up a few things that have been misreported in the media, particularly regarding the transportation issues, what this bond plan does is when we passed the budget we provided for $440 million hours of recurring dollars going to transportation expenses over six years that is $2.64 billion cash debt free that is 84% more what the original plan does. What this bond bill does is provide financing for those things that do not have a revenue strain and reserve our cash for building transportation, its the largest confusion of cash for transportation that we have seen in recent history so together we are putting over $4.64 billion together worth of the infrastructure in the North Carolina thank your for your vote I ask for your support again.

Thank you.  The gentleman will be recorded as having voted aye. Members, I would ask if I may, I would ask that members not change any more votes or miss votes what has happened just a little minute ago was one reason that we were so delayed was whenever members change votes the clerks office has to bring things back we have bills that are being sent to the senate they literally have to be brought back for member to change votes so the chair is going from the reminder of the session to strongly discourage members from changing votes and if members miss votes then they miss votes further discussion further debate, on this motion? If not the question for the house is the adoption of the motion to concur on it's third reading, those in favor will vote aye, those opposed will no, the Clerk will open the vote. the clerk will lock the machine, and record the vote, 93 having voted in the affirmative, and 20 in the negative. The motion to concur is adopted. The bill is ordered, and rolled, and sent to the governor. House bill 98 the corporal will read. I should strike that House bill 259, the clerk will read.

Representatives Cleveland, Abraham, and Riddell, House bill 59 a bill to be entitled enact correct related to general government. General assembly North Carolina enacts. For what purpose does the gentleman from Wake representative Dollar rise? to debate the senate committee substitute for house bill 259 and representative Dower[sp?] Dwayne[sp?] we will need to read each amendment the chair will go ahead and have to direct the court to read amendment 1SA1 Senator Graham to amend the bill on page one line one through fourteen by the lead and substitute the following The gentlemen has authority to forward the amendment and the chair the gentleman wide latitudes since it is part of a bill that hadn't been voted on the amendments individually. I believe that one, that is the amendment that requires to page one of the bill. Okay, what that amendment speaking of is to remove. Just a moment, for what the gentleman from Nash Representative Collins rise? Inquire the chair. The gentleman may state his inquiry. Is this a one page bill? What I have on my computers are one page bill labelled House Bill 259?   No, what the member would need to do Representative Collins, is the member will notice that they're four amendments that have to be voted on individually, you'll see four separate links, and those are what the Chairman  will be  debating on each one of those, if the general will see where the amendments are. Mr. Speaker, my computer is trying to refresh. I know I likely have, bill is in only page but my computer is trying to refresh, so hopefully I will get sometime before we have to vote on.   It is a 22 page amendment  representative Collins. The gentleman from Wake has the forward to debate the amendment . Is the gentleman moving that the house do concur with the senate amendment? Gentleman moves that the house do concur with the senate amendment. Gentleman has moved the house to concur.  The gentleman has the floor to debate the senate amendment. The senate amendment is the first one. if I understand correctly they are Mr. Speaker? For what purpose does the lady from Orange Representative Insko rise? I see a few screens are coming up, a lot of us are still blank. The lady says screens should be up I think she's just taking a few minutes for some of this stuff, but  what this first amendment here is, this first amendment is the looks like the entire substitution for house bill 259 and this is the same bill with some amendments that I think we will be discussing this is essentially the same bill that we passed in the appropriations committee earlier this afternoon and as a a technical correction bill I will try to get it through and point out what the differences are. The first difference is at the bottom of the first page there is a section that is no longer there and that's where the bonus cheque was going to be paid separately from the employees December pay. The controller had requested that the bonus amount be paid along with the December paycheck that goes out on the 21st December to all employees and same for police and teachers the house had originally suggested we go along with the controller. The senate finally I guess and around that position and so for that reason that provision was no longer needed to pay those separately the next section of the bill that was amended, basically was amended out, was Section C, 7.11 C had to do with the the [xx] section, I discussed this with Representative Saine. It was some additional

language that had to do with consultation on RFP's with a varietyof groups that we believe will be happening, anyway through the normal course. That particular provision was removed from what you saw earlier this afternoon. Section 6.1 that was in the area involving public instruction, and that will be page 13 of this amendment, that was removed because that provision is actually in a bill that is on the governor's desk, and we anticipate that bill being signed so that issue was dealt with there were two other changes and they may be the subject of subsequent amendments one was to add psychiatry or psychiatric residents to those individuals who would be able to qualify for the Mountain Area [xx], as some of you are aware, the position training money that was put toward the [xx] in the western portion of the state, there was a technical amendment added that just allowed for psychiatric residents to also to qualify for that program, and then the final amendment that was incorporated, either here or may be the subject of one of the sitting there is a change in the date or the revenue loss study committee I believe that is in the sub quarter amendment, for the revenue loss committee on study on market based sourcing, so other than those changes the bill is essentially is, was reviewed in the formal preparations committee earlier this afternoon, so I'll be happy to attempt to answer any questions that you might have and I would move the adoption of the Amendment. Further discussion further debate on the Amendment. If not the question before the house is the adoption of Amendment one Those in favor will vote Aye those opposed will vote No the clerk will open the vote. Clerk will lock the machine and record the vote. 111 having voted in the affirmative and none on the negative the amendment is adopted. The gentleman is recognized to send forth the Amendment 8-2, clerk will read. Senator Apodaca moves to amend amendment one on page six line 22 between those lines, the following. Chairman is recognized for a motion to concur on Amendment two. Members this is the one that I had mentioned previously, the Mountain Area Health Education Center funds this just allows from the funds that were already appropriated in the main budget, psychiatry residents would also be able to qualify as students in this program. I would urge the adoption of this amendment. The gentleman's moves concurrence and the option of number two, further discussion, further debate if not those in favor will vote aye, those opposed will vote no, the clerk will open the vote. The clerk will lock the machine record the vote, 111 having voted in the affirmative none in the negative is adopted, the gentleman is recognized to move to concur an amendment three, does the gentleman so move? The clerk will read. Senator Brown moves to amend the amendment on page 21 line 38 by deleting sub division four this select section is substituted, sub sub division on district sub division. The gentleman is recognized to debate the amendment. this is on

page 21 line 38 which deletes subdivision four of the section and substitutes subdivision d of this subdivision. This is a technical amendment to the language on that page, I would move the adoption of the amendment. Further discussion, further debate. If not, the question Mr. Speaker? For what purpose does the lady from Orange, Representative Insko rise? Just what is the topic Does the lady wish to address the question to Representative Dollar? Yes And does the gentleman yield? I yield. He yields. I'm just curious about what the subject area is and the topic is being changed. This is on, if you look at page 21 this is a section that's dealing with the Department of Revenue, published guidelines for computing, the sales factor based on market based sourcing. The guidelines that are required by the sub divisions are not subject to provisions of Chapter 150 B of the general statutes with respect to rule making, the guidelines published by the Department of Revenue must be based on the following, there are several following items. One of those following items under 1E are down on line 38. Talks about provided under sub-division four of this sub-section. This will now read substituting sub-division D of this subdivision so instead of for it's referencing item number D. There is no four to reference in this particular provision so it's referencing D which is a provision in one immediately above the section that's being amended. Further discussion further debate, if not the question before the house is the adoption or the motion to concur in senate amendment three. 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, 111 having voted in the affirmative and none in the negative. The amendment is good, motion to concur on the amendment is adopted. The clerk will read Senate Amendment number four. Senator Richard moves to amend the amendment on page 21, line 13 by deleting and substituting on or before February 1st, 2016. Gentleman's recognized for a motion to concur we have a concurrent with [xx]. The gentleman has the floor to debate the same. This amendment is also on page 21 on line 13 and this provides that the department of revenue must publish guidelines, this will now read honor before February 1st of 2016, the department of revenue must publish guidelines for computing the sales factor based on market based sourcing. So that is the amendment that provides the dates specific for the publication honorable for publication for these particular guidelines. And I move the adoption of the amendment Further discussion, further debate if not the question before the house is the adoption of the motion to concur. In Senate number four those in favor will vote aye those oppose will vote no the clerk will open the vote Clerk clock, machine record the vote. 111 having voted for the affirmative and non on the negative.

To ask the gentleman a question that jumped out at me. Does the gentleman from Cass yield to the gentleman from Gilford? I'm contemplating Mr. Speaker. Yes, sir.

M embers, we briefly stand at ease I'm going to consult with our friends across on the other side of the building, we are considering a recess until 10 A. M. But want to see exactly, what we are trying to determine right now is exactly how long it will take to get the conference report down, we can see that  ifSenate Bill 119 was was when we appointed, I do not believe there is another one, I think that is it, but it may take a while to work that out inside the chair, we are going to inquire see how long that is going to take and it's going to take a while and probably what we'll do is just come back in the normal hours of the morning. Mr. Speaker. Yes. For what purpose does the gentleman from Guildford representative Blust Inquiry of the chair. The gentleman may state his inquiry.

Thank you Mr. Speaker, members this is the same bill that passed the house on unanimous vote, it passed the senate about an hour ago, maybe an hour, and a half, two hours, I don't know, I loosed track of time. On unanimous vote, it's not controversial the only change the senate made is they changed the effective date. I'm not aware of any opposition. I appreciate your support of the motion to concur. Does the gentleman move that the House do concur with the senate amendment?  I'm sorry. Does the gentleman move that the house concur with the senate amendment? I'm not aware. The answer will be yes. The gentleman moves the house to prepare for the senate bill, the Clerk will read. Senator McKissick moves to amend the bill on page 13 line two by deleting the freezer to offer 2015 substitute November 1st 2015.  Further discussion further debate if not the question for the house is the adoption of the motion to concur with Senate amendment one.

The Clerk will lock the machine and record the vote. 86 vote the affirmative and none on the negative, the house does concur with the senate amendment one, we are now back on the question of concurrence Mr. Speaker what purpose does the gentlemen from guest, I am sorry sir, I was sitting here pressing my button but no light evidently came on, I was possibly voted the regression, Mr speaker. For what purpose does the lady from Cobies[sp?] representative Johnson rise?.

Is there anyone who [xx] the clerk will lock the machine and will record the vote. 90 having voted in the affirmative, and none in the negative, the motion to concur is adopted. The bill is ordered enrolled and sent to the governor. Members I checked in just a few minutes ago with the conferees meeting on a one night team, and they are making very rapid progress. They were about three, four of the way through that review in the conference report, and then mind if talking to a few because I know folks are retired and ready to go but, if we had no number folks actually commute home and all, and what we would be dealing with particularly for those who are commuting is that members will be driving and have to be here by around 10 o'clock tomorrow morning. So the chair has determined that it's our best to plough through and finish up this morning. But I would think we should be done within an hour to an hour and a half. I understand if some members can't stay for that entire time. But I believe, and the clerk can correct me, I believe we have just one bill with this 119, I'm not sure if there's anything else and 119 was the technical corrections bill that I believe has unanimously. There is a Conference Report tat will be presented, from the conferees and is trying to work out some of the differences between the senate and the house. It does not appear that there's any controversy from what I'm seeing so far, so far Notices or announcements? We're going to standard these, I will make this commitment it is about 125 members are free to be gone for an hour, we will take no action for the next till, 2:30 so members need to go somewhere you're certainly safe for an hour, I don't want to say to 3 because I'm hoping we can come back at 2:30 and actually dispose of everything then. For what purpose does the gentleman from Lee, Representative Reeves, rise? Inquiry of the Chair. The gentleman may state his inquiry I just heard that Mr. Speaker you were saying I'm sorry Could the gentleman please repeat? Yes you were saying that we only had one bill left at 119 but I was still showing 98. House bill 98 was the house budget technical correction the chair is going to direct that they'll be returned. Well. It is there members do not believe that we will be actually voting on that bill it has not been moved at this time, the chair intends that once everything is done, this bill will more than likely simply be returned to the committee on appropriations but for right now it is simply parked where in is. So it would appear the only business the chair is aware we will have to do is 119 and then a motion to adjourn. We have already adopted the adjournment resolution. So it's just a matter of the motion to adjourn afterwards. Any notices or announcements? Otherwise we're going to stand at ease untill 2:30 The [xx] clerk reports the following bills duly ratified for presentation to the governor Senate Bill 279, an Act to amend [xx] councillors act to modify educational qualifications for the [xx] of councillors and to require local authority of education to address sex trafficking provision and awareness.

Members before Representative Luis makes a motion my members received an email to a link to quite to say that members can access the dashboard there is a problem with trying to access the dashboard outside but members quick that link on the email members should be able to see the report. The gentleman from Harnett, Representative Louis is recognized for a motion. Mr Speaker, I move that the house do adopt the Conference Report for Senate Bill 119. Representative Louis has made for the house to adopt the Report for Senate Bill 119, the gentleman now has the floor to debate the motions. Thank you Mr Speaker, I know that members are now only getting to read this so I will talk slowly and go through first the provisions that are different from this Conference Report that one that left our chamber. Talking slowly is not particularly hard for me to do. Mr. Speaker, I will point out that the provisions that I'm going to list that are out of this conference report  we discussed with the senate and advocated for the house but largely it was decided that the issues where indeed substitive and needed further review and can certainly can be considered during the May or April 25th, I should say session. The differences are as follows in section 34.5 in the bill that passed had clarified the substitute of changes to House Bill 562, the senate felt that that needed a closer review from a judiciary committee and therefore is not in this report. Section 35 which dealt with Parole officers buying there own service weapon. The senate also felt that required closer review from a judiciary committee, and therefore is not in this conference report, section 38.5 which dealt with the purchase of vehicles for purposes of scrap or parts only so I felt that was a substitute provision that needed review and also lacked any urgency, therefore it is out of this Conference report. Section 49 dealt with an employee definition that is a substitute of change, and it's out of this Conference report. Section 50 dealt with commission, language, it is out this Conference report. Section 51 when it left the house dealt with an employer's record and report of absence, the senate felt that needed further review as a substitute of change therefore it is out of this Conference report. Section 54.5 was an antic auto mobile per division. The senate felt that that was a substitute of change and also not an urgent change and could be reviewed in the short session, and therefore it is out of this Conference support. Section 54.5 this is the first section in this bill that is new it was not in the house report when we left here it is technical and clarifying changes to the historic preservation language section 56.2 also languish

from the senate deals with local owners says regulating ore and gas explorations, section 56.5 there is a change the house had established or the house had offer an amendment that allowed the creation of non-profit corporations the senate added only clarifying language to this the house position prevail the senate change some of the language section 58 is a policy session regarding allies[sp?] the senate felt that it was a subject of change and also that they can wait till May they will not have any impact prior to that therefore in this house section 59 which when they left the house, had a competitive bidding process for the ACT test or tested large. The Senate felt that was a substantive policy decision they also fear is was one that had largely already been made for this year therefore that provision is out and the ACT test will remain in the law. Section 61 was an LAA revision that was not accounted for in the budget Therefore it was out. Section 62 dealt with teacher and principal policy decision making. The Senate felt that was a subsititive issue it should be discussed in a policy committee therefore it is out section 67, when it left the house dealt with changing the reimbursement formula for AP testing. They are possible and frankly in the time we had an unquantifiable impact on the budget therefore it is out. Sections 74, 75 and 76 were all submitive[sp?] policy that can wait till made to be reviewed therefore it is out. Section 86.2 deals with the Environmental Review Commission. It is a technical change to switch County names to River Basin, it is in. Section 90.5 is an unpaved road improvement pilot program, that is in. Section 90.7 which corrects the county for our appointment. This was truly just an individual hadn't been appointed to a board in the wrong County was listed as her home County. That is in the Bill in section 91.2 which was technical changes regarding Senate Bill 279 which the house is not going to consider this section was no longer needed and therefore is out. The running tally is there were 22 total amendments pardon me there had been 22 total amendments between the House Rules Committee and the House Floor 12 of which survived intact in this Bill another one survives intact but slightly re-fined.
