As you know, we have had some news about Map Act and how North Carolina in the last year went about capturing people's property for roads that was the Wrong way to do that. This body understood it was a wrong way to do that. So we have to address it for further out. So I wanna let you know that when the Bill comes back from conference a section will be added and Mr. Speaker if I need staff, I have them available if that would be appropriate, if there's any questions. When the Bill comes back, we'll have the Map Act, language in that Bill, here's some key points. You can go home and say that the current operational format and procedures under the Map Act are no more, they're gone. It provides one year for NCDOT to look at ad decide a path, Forward, okay, it also takes into consideration those impacted from a monetary situation, we do not have real numbers but we set a path forward as to what to do. We're also instructing DOT to address maps in three phases, ones that are complete, ones that are In process and ones that are future, so when we could bring the Bill back, we will go into more specific detail on those but I wanted to let everyone know that when it comes back it will have

a Map Act which is very substantial forward moving legislation on how we address public and private property when it comes to building roads. And we're available for any questions Mr. Speaker. >> Further discussion further debate, if not the question before the House is the adoption of the motion not to concur with the Senate committee substitute to house bill 959.

There's no procedure to because the only other way that that will be addressed would be if the chair would have name the entire committee as a conference committee and the chair doesn't believe that that's gonna be an efficient use of time, so let the chair thank the gentleman for his question.
