Speaker: Senate bill 32 the clerk will read, Speaker Changes: Senate bill 32 ?? and exploration of the bill, Speaker Changes: Senator ?? is recognized to explain the bill, Speaker Changes: thank you Mr.Speaker and i have my file toady senator ??, Speaker Changes: This Bill comes from the joint administrative procedure over side commission we are actually discovered that there are we know that there are 22000 rules that they out their and published identified by various ?? many of which are not reviewed for eager accuracy or ?? or legal authority for as long as twenty years what the bill does it does a ?? for rules review commission review of those rules in some ?? that they have suggested and then periodic review of every ten years for ?? of various rules or other provisions stood that generally fall on those lands i would commend to i had a question raised previously by senator stone because ?? like need to and we will probably object by third reading we had like to try and answer for any other further question, Speaker Changes: if any discussion any debate, Speaker Changes: Mr president, Speaker Changes: Senator ?? for what purpose you ask , Speaker Changes: The gentlemen yells a question, Speaker Changes: senator ?? do you yell, Speaker Changes: certainly, Speaker Changes: Thanks senator ?? this is calls for the APO or the rules review commission that actually say that the sun setting that start of the al over again with the rule making it's one table does both but it's a time such that a sunset is not a current table to various departments to urge and review the rules what do you have , Speaker Changes: Senator ?? do you yell, Speaker Changes: Did you all consider reviews by rules commission and some process by which all of the if you are stand girls are not appeals or some line of process that we can file the bill repair or more some thing more than automatic repair my concern is there are 22000 rules and probably 21000 of them or Monday rules have to do with process filing papers for that field that kind of stuff that make state by run i hate by the whole process with those 21000 not being able to get the pipeline that time i concerned about the body that you are putting on the system, Speaker Changes: Mr president frankly they are voluntary to do this and first set of rules that might be comes from actually department of ?? services which has 4556 rules that we have but those are bot sun side are not expired anything until at the earliest of 2016 so we have time to reveal this concealed things and we have ?? for most of these things that ?? if the ??were anything from 3 to 4000 in course of the rules in days of Monday that i don't see anything particularly ??, Speaker Changes: Do you think he yells, Speaker Changes: He yells, Speaker Changes: I think we are talking past each other i don't have any APO review commission who ever is gonna review but D H S A agrees to sunset all it's rules and 16 act them all the medicate rule and all that's the, Speaker Changes: they agreed to it, Speaker Changes: yes, Speaker Changes: no, Speaker Changes: what you yells another question, Speaker Changes: Representative ?? do you yell, Speaker Changes: certainly, Speaker Changes: Where that's the part of the bill that I'm certainly concerned about because the rules process may take 2 or 3 year to enact the rule and if these all those 4035 of those are routine are required by medicated or whatever why in order to sunset them and put them in the pipe line to get i the way that all the other rules that way want to look at, Speaker Changes: I'm i Mr.President, Speaker Changes: Yes, Speaker Changes: We anticipate that,

reviewed in place for their sons and that is what they told us and we have enough time to look into that inversion problem we can address it. I will have at least two more sessions, legislation for any of these one problems is quite honestly, the court several thousands of these rules. I will never ever been reviewed at all and the foam was we need to get some systematic way to at least take a look at them again and those that are adequately established are actually in place and operating there would be a problem with the re-enactment involving the rules review commission actually do that if it is the general assembly wishes intervene in some fashion on a particular one, they can still do that to just try to get some system to looking at things that have been addressed and probably in some cases, real thirty years to speak briefly on the bill, said Ernes to 's floor speech on the activist government was ascended out of the estate on anything. it has been adored by the growth of our broiler on this please everybody else around here [SPEAKER CHANGES] we do have a tendency for rules to build on one another, not all that, not three hundred percent with your heaven. all these things reviewed by somebody could look at them for, but the bottleneck of the rules process is getting those highest and each candidate will object to it. it doesn't bias in news .com. the General assembly, and I think before we get to the point of saying that all world for data, we need to give us a call or were going to be over here. video the wait for a twenty two him enrols most of which may have slowed enough and that their mandated by Medicaid are mandated by the federal government and somewhere love and I don't think that's a process that we've got the time or the patience to do and if we can figure out some way to where once we won't do some about found us automatic, or for that and start over. almost, but all I found that my theory is that the end of the day we end up getting mad about the APA and how sorry they as we go away with it because we can get always roof of the pipeline and I'm telling you the APA rules process on the best lines ever happened to the state so that agencies have somebody looking over their shoulder when your neck in these roof might sure they have statutory authority to do it so hard. only you can take another look at the part about Vista make involved in on a certain day sooner reverse draws hundreds [SPEAKER CHANGES] to speak a second centre is the second two project for reading the same as seven an interesting experience dealing with them. Susan is with us eleven through still a mystery procedure. it is about his various general statutes commission, maybe not quite as much, but that's progressively sorry in reviewing rules are adopted and have been in the hands we got totally agree with all the alien and the instability of a government to to do this right procedure and due process. I also discovered that many of those rules are actually identified and never had him a toy telephone tried to move those rules and the expense associated with them. one fact in many cases they don't exist, and is very difficult to single out a particular one to some particular individual or individual has been asked as a particular problem by which I will sleep is to create a system that is these can be effectively reviewed over to think that this is best for you have right now is even the best way to approach it as being so that we don't have the sun is cumulative. the fact I can tell you that there are several agencies that have adopted. finds the college season

00:00 they treat them as rules and we're trying to address that too and this is the way we can we think that we can best address this in the long run it is not designed to create a problem for agencies it is designed to benefit the folks who are subject and I would commend it to you.

[SPEAKER CHANGES] Senate Bill 454, Registration of Petroleum Device Technicians. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Cook is recognized or Senator Barefoot, who wants to do it? Senator Barefoot, you want to take it? Senator Barefoot is recognized to explain the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you. Senate Bill 454 amends the gasoline and oil inspection law to provide statutory authority for the registration of petroleum device technicians. The reason why this is needed is because when a state inspector shuts down a gasoline pump because it's not measuring gas properly the pump owner calls a service person, a petroleum device technician that's already registered by the Board and that technician must make repairs and put the pump back into service and currently right now a state inspector has to go back out and recheck the pump again and before they can let it be opened to the public. By recognizing these people by the State it would take a step out of the process. I urge you to support the bill. It is pro-business. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Any discussion or debate?

[SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Apodaca is recognized to explain the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. President. Members, this bill is crafted very narrowly to only apply to the SBI Crime Lab in Ashville Center in ???. As we move forward Senator Daniel to put a new facility in ?? North Carolina or Asheville, not Morgington. This would allow the SBI lab to stay where it is now. The landlords have agreed to keep the rent the same for a three year period. So that's what this bill does. It would have to go to Counsel of State for approval but the landlord has graciously agreed to leave the rate the same way to give us time to get that new lab built in western North Carolina. Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Discussion or debate. Hearing none, the question before the Senate is passage of Senate Bill 483 on its second reading.

Senate Bill 483 passed its third reading and will be sent to the House. Senate Bill 490. The clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senate Bill 490: exclude custom software from property tax. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Gunn is recognized to explain the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. President. The bill does exactly what it says – excludes custom software from property tax. Most states subject only embedded software to tax. North Carolina has taken a different approach to interpretation of statute. North Carolina Department of Revenue has divide local assessors that the cost of improvements and customization of software purchased from third parties is included in the assessable value of the purchased software. This position harms companies that is one of our big growth sectors, particularly with data centers. The fix is simple. This will clarify the intent of the existing statute to exclude custom development work on and improvements to purchased software. This simply is a clarification of the existing statute. I appreciate your support. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Any discussion or debate? Hearing none, the question for the Senate is the passage of Committee Substitute Senate Bill #490 on its second reading.
