[SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Graham, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To speak on the resolution, sir. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentlemen is recognized to speak on the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you speaker Tillis, and thank you who is of general assembly for allowing us to share. I want to tell you that I met Representative Waynwright in the early 1990s. Both of us were considering it at that time, seeking the seat of the house, which consisted of Lenoir, Craven, and Pamlico County. A young man by the name of John Carman, who was an attorney over at Craven County got in contact with an attorney in ?? by the name of Harvard Beech, and stated that he had a free-in, someone that he had met that he thought would be good for that particular job. We set up a town hearing, a town meeting where Waynwright was brought over and we would provide him an opportunity to speak and adjust the crowd. Well, after about 10 or 15 minutes, everyone was standing up at the top of the building. I was told, I don't know if Waynwright was speaking or preaching, but I was asked to suspend my candidacy. Through all those years, we all got behind him and we worked very hard for him, and he had an opportunity to serve for some 22 years. I want to tell you that he took care of Lenoir County, and Craven County, and Pamlico County, and he was concerned about education, children, and medical care. He was a man of God, and he just did the right thing. We're so honored and please that he had an opportunity to represent East and North Carolina in this ??. Thank you for sharing. Mr. Speaker, I commend this resolution to the house. Thank you, sir. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Szoka, please state your purpose. Representative Lucas, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To speak on the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentlemen is recognized to speak on the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Ladies and Gentlemen, Reverend Waynwright and I share the same church in nomination. When I was first elected in '01, Waynwright was one of the first persons to greet me on the floor and say, "Welcome, my Methodist brother." From then on, every day that I greeted, or that I saw Representative Waynwright, it was always, "How are you, my Methodist brother?" It's been on back and forth each day of each session, so much so until Garland Pierce, I think he got a little jealous and said, "What is all this Methodism?" Waynwright would always affectionately greet me, and I always called him "Bishop."

[??] of his constituency and to the process and progress and greatness of this community and state. His role as speaker pro temp, as deputy minority leader, his leadership of the legislative black caucus and his chairmanship of the finance committee. His commitment to education, particularly the African-American male mentoring project in our community college system, all the other benefits he received by those he represented, a test to his unselfish character. His every action indicates that the depth of the meaning of his life is unfathomable and exhaustible and fertilizing from one generation to the next. Those of us who survived must confront the power of his character and moral presence. The force of his personality, the charisma of his being, the creativity of his thought and the invincibility of his belief that God called him and therefore he knew no fear in doing that which was right, honorable and beneficial. And when I talked to him on the last Thursday before he died, he indicated to me that he knew what lay ahead, that he felt safe and secure in the fact that he had indeed made a contribution. We did not go into any detail but both of us knew that his life had not been lived in vain. And I suspect on that Tuesday evening William looked towards heaven and said precious lord take my hand, lead me on, let me stand. I am tired, I am weak, I am worn. I've been through the storm, I've been through the night, lead me on to the light. Precious lord take my hand, lead me on. God took his hand. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Lewis please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To speak on the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. Speaker. There's an old saying that says statesmanship is much harder than politics, because politics is the art of getting along with people, statesmanship is the art of getting along with politicians. And as I listen to the very eloquent remarks that were put forth on this floor today it occurred to me that all of us in this chamber share many things but one thing that we all serve is that each one of us at one point or the other spent our first day on this floor. And I can recall that for my first day on this floor that Representative Wayne Wright was always a kind man, a man to whom you could turn for advice. A man who would tell you the truth, sometimes he didn't give me the answer that I had hoped he would give me but I knew the answer that he gave was the truth. And as I look back and realize how truly fortunate I am to have had the privilege and honor to serve with him for ten years, I am truly thankful, and I commend this resolution to you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Adams please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To speak on the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The lady is recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. Speaker. Ladies and Gentleman of the house I'm honored to support this resolution for a man who I cherished as a genuinely good friend and loyal supporter. For more than two decades I depended on Representative Wayne Wright as a source of personal strength, and like most of you I was blessed by his wisdom his guidance and his leadership. It really hasn't been the same for me since his passing on July 17th, 2012, even though I occupy the seat that he sat in. Wayne Wright and I spent a lot of time together and on most days when we were in session, stayed in the same hotel, we ate breakfast together, lunch and dinner. And like most good friends we didn't always agree, didn't always see eye to eye but he always wanted me to see it his way. He listened to me sometimes but he wanted me to listen to him all the time. We worked together on many projects in the legislature and the legislative black caucus and in the black caucus foundation. He was our treasurer. He helped...

[SPEAKER CHANGES] I am one of those representatives who got appointed in a short session in the interim so I have a little bit on the job training before I had actually run for election and when I first came into the chamber in 2004 I was to take the seat that was once held by ?? and he set up before the prime because he has been forever and ever and I was petrified because I an gonna be sitting up in front and I didn't know where I was who I was who any of these other people were but I had the privilege though I didn't had the time to sit right in the neighborhood I think it was either beside or behind representative Wayne ride and you know how first impression really mean a lot to a person when you are new.

He would make sure that we has an order coming up to us from the snack bar. So I was always well fed always knew when it was time to vote and he just made an incredible first impression on me and then he made a lasting impression on me because when he prayed I knew that God was listening. I remember so well one of the last prayers he prayed as member of our carcass. He was invited to pray at one of our last carcass gatherings before before the end of session outs last session. And I just knew my first impressions will tell you that when he prayed God was listening. I am going to miss and do miss representative Wayne Right and I commend this resolution to body. Thank you.

He was weak, but he still was there serving and encouraging this sunny school convention down in North Carolina to keep the faith to hold on and that was so meanest to it's just encourage me to be safe and I just believe they got to Wayne Right.

Guilford had a bill the Town of Oakridge wanted in the Western part of Guilford to have some ETJ to keep Turnersville from coming over, and then we thought that was going to be enough, nothing, no opposition, sail through the Senate, came over here, and Larry Brown fought that think, and that's probably the maddest I've ever been in here over Larry. But it was all a fair fight, he just knew the issue better. He knew ETJ, he knew annexation, and he cause all kinds of headaches over that. And for few days I was so mad, but I learned one thing, and this is very important for new members. The wins come and go, the issues change, and somebody who can be your biggest impediment, or your biggest enemy one day, you might need them the next day, or the next week. And Larry was able to put that aside and we actually became good friends after tangling so strenuously on an issue. So that is something to definitely learn, to put you battles behind you and move on, and don't get permanently estranged from someone on a personal basis. Larry also could teach you that you've got to be careful what you put over an email. He did get in some trouble over an email one time. But he was very knowledgeable, he knew issues, he stood up for his people, he knew issues, he studied issue, and he was tough. And I can tell you he was tough, because had he been back, he was going to do what 5 brave people before him have just not been able to do. He was going to go where Representative West couldn't make it, tough Viet Nam veteran, Representative Daughtry, veteran of the political wars of this chamber, Representative Cleveland, Marine Corps retiree, you think he's tough, Speaker Tillis, business man, IBM consultant, Representative Killian, West Pointer, Airborne Ranger. They had all been my seat mates and they couldn't take it another term, but Larry Brown was going to do it, and I hope the post Blust traumatic stress disorder didn't bother him too much. I fear for Representative Turner. The Speaker in his wisdom, has now put a female here. But Larry made it. I'm going to miss him, he was a great member, and I commend the resolution to you. [SPEAKER CHANGES]Representative Larry Bell, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES]To speak on the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES]The gentleman is recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES]Thank you Mr. Speaker, members of the House. Larry Brown was one of the 3 Larry's in here. Larry Bell, Larry Hall, Larry Brown and Larry Wampo, yeah there are 4 of us, and we'd always talk about that when we came to meet. And he became a good friend of mine, and as Representative Lewis mentioned, was a true statesman who'd reach across the aisles and work with people, and he did just that. He reached across the aisles if he selected me and Prior Gibson to travel with him to Taiwan. First time I ever roamed that far away from home, but it was a long trip and I enjoyed it and some of the other members in the House went along with us. And we were the only 2 Democrats to go on that trip, Prior Gibson and myself. And I think we made friends across this aisle that last even to this day, and so I always thought of him for that reason, and he kept me informed about the members that we met there all the time. He stayed in constant contact with some of the officials Taiwan, and he would always send me pictures, whatever, and news briefs about them. So I was really sad to hear of his passing, and he was a good friend and a good statesman as you said, and I commit the resolution to you. [SPEAKER CHANGES]Representative Dollar, state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES]To speak on the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES]The gentleman is recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES]Thank you Mr. Speaker, members of the House. I think it's a wonderful day that we take the time to honor both

Of these legislatures who were here for the right reasons and both of them serve as such a wonderful example to us. Larry came in with my class, or our class, there's a few of us left that came in in 2005 and when I came to the chamber, one of my major goals was probably my top goal when I got here was annexation reform, and I knew there were a few people in the chamber at the time who had been working for years, tirelessly on that, some of those folks were getting ready to leave the chamber. Little did I know, Larry Brown, when he came in, had the same goal. We spent eight years, there were a number of legislatures that worked on that issue. But I would have to say that no one worked any more tirelessly on the issue of involuntary annexation and property rights for the citizens of this state, than Larry Brown. He was dogged for eight years and as representative Blust said we finally got it done, and we thought we got it done in 2011. We did get it done in 2012. Put the final stamp on that and I think that's a lasting legacy that will live on in the memories of so many very grateful citizens all across this state and it's wonderful to see legislatures that are trying to promote goals that are beyond themselves that are not part of self interests, but are goals that won't the best for the citizens of our state. I think that Larry had that in his heart and he served with that at the forefront of his mind and all of his actions. So ?? Representative Wainwright and Representative Brown, we miss them both and we aspire to their example of servant leadership. Thank you! [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Starnes, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To speak on the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman's recognized. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Ladies and gentlemen of the house, Larry Brown is my friend and I was glad to serve with him as a colleague here. It's interesting to see the different character and the nature that different members have. Some people love to get up and holler and shout and scream to make their point. Larry Brown had a quiet resolve about him. He proved that you don't have to be loud to be heard. When Larry Brown spoke, people listened. They knew that what he was getting ready to say was something that was worth listening to. You didn't have to know Larry Brown very long to understand that he was very devout in his faith. He loved the lord with all his heart and he was unashamed in telling you that he was a Christian. Larry Brown was a servant of the people. I don't know of any member who I've ever served with who had more of a servant attitude than Larry Brown. He always wanted to see what he could do to help you, not what you could do to help him. Larry Brown was a man who never wavered in his principles, or in his convictions. He would work with you on an issue. He would try to come to an agreement with you on an issue, but when it came to his core principles, he never compromised on what he felt was the truth. Larry Brown was a very effective chair of the government committee ?? he had a unique ability to chair with just a quiet authority. Very confident in the knowledge that what he was doing was right. Excuse me ?? rights. And as others have said, the annexation reform was one of his burning issues and he spent years and years and years seeing that the bill actually come to pass. But why was it that Larry Brown was interested in annexation? It was because he wanted to help members or individuals protect their property ?? have to go in and do battle against the cities who have the resources that the average citizen did not. You know, when I think about Larry Brown, I'm reminded of a poem by Walter Foss and it says, "Let me live in a house by the side of the road where the race of men go by. The men who are good. The men who are bad. As good, or as bad as I, I would not sit in this corner seat, nor would I hurl the cynic's ban. Just let me live in my house by the side of the road and be a friend to man." We all know that Larry Brown was our friend and I don't know of any greater compliment that we can pay to him. Mr. Speaker, I commend the resolution to you. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Goodman, please state your purpose.

To speak on the resolution. [CHANGE SPEAKER] The gentleman is recognized. [CHANGE SPEAKER] Thank you Mister Speaker. It is great to hear so many wonderful words about Representative Wainwright and I would love to have said more but I don't think I could have added anything to what was said. But I did want to tell you about this one incident that happened to me right after I was elected in 2010. I came up here to the legislative building and got inside and was totally lost; was walking around in circles and I ran into Larry Brown. And he asked me, he could tell that I was confused. He said "What's going on?" And I said "I'm trying to find the Speaker's office". And instead of saying "Go up those stairs, turn left four times, walk down three halls, turn right three times and you'll find it", he took the time to walk me out there, walk me up to the office and make sure I got in. And it was just a small act of kindness but it meant so much to me as a new member here and it really made me feel welcome. So I would like to commend the resolution to you. [CHANGE SPEAKER] Representative Hurley, please state your purpose. [CHANGE SPEAKER] To speak on the resolution. [CHANGE SPEAKER] The lady is recognized. [CHANGE SPEAKER] Thank you Mister Speaker. Members of the General Assembly, my life has been enriched and I didn't realize it was going to be today. I probably would have written something. But to have known Larry Brown, I came here seven years ago and his office was two doors down from mine. And each time I had a problem or anything I had to talk to, he was always there. He also left to go to Pinehurst. And one day I was in Pinehurst at a tag sale; many of you many know about tag sales, but they're fun. I heard this lady say "Who has house number 44?" And I told her "It's me". So I went over and I met his wonderful wife. She was on the phone to him, wondering who I was, and we met there. And that was the last time I got to talk to him and I talked on her phone to him and I miss him. He was even our representative for part of Randolph County because when I came they were having an annexation. ?? situation and the people were calling me right and left. He said "Have them call me. I'll explain and I'll help you every way I can". And we did. We worked on ?? legislation every way we could and he did help mine. And he emailed my people and he talked to my people on the phone and my life has been enriched for having known him. And the people from Taiwan, his sister city, they came to his funeral. They had a delegation there. And his life has meant a lot to the people of Kernersville. Thank you. [CHANGE SPEAKER] Representative Wilkins, please state your purpose. [CHANGE SPEAKER] To speak to the resolution, Mister Speaker. [CHANGE SPEAKER] The gentleman is recognized. [CHANGE SPEAKER] Representative Dollar mentioned the Class of '05. I was in that class and it's kind of strange. You've been around a few years but yet you can just sit down any time you want to and you know what I'm talking about and you can name the folks who were in your freshman class. I came in with Representative Dollar and Representative Dale Folwell. I even survived having Representative George Cleveland in my freshman class. Representative Ray, Representative Harrison. You can just name them off and you know what I'm talking about. But Representative Larry Brown was also a member of that Class of '05 and a very staunch and valued member and now the Class of '05 is incomplete. I commend the resolution to you, Mister Speaker. [CHANGE SPEAKER] Representative Boles, please state your purpose. [CHANGE SPEAKER] To speak on the resolution. [CHANGE SPEAKER] The gentleman is recognized. [CHANGE SPEAKER] Thank you Mister Speaker. I met Larry my first term when I came up in '09 and there shortly, Larry got ill and had a stroke. And it was the determination that I saw in Larry because when he came back to the chamber he came back, and Martha you brought him back in his wheelchair and his little scooter. He went from a wheelchair to the scooter to the cane. But it was the determination that he had to get back to this chamber; that he felt that he got stronger by

representing the people. I will tell you that after I met him in '09 when we started a session we started, I started recognizing Larry at a local restaurant that we would eat at on Monday nights. And I said, well that's Larry Brown. He's in the House with me. And did not know that on Monday nights we would eat at the same restaurant in the bar section and always had a sandwich and that became, that we would meet on Monday nights when we weren't in sessions with Martha, which he dearly loved, and that was a nice event. I also come to find out that Larry had a second home in Pinehurst and so, even though the district was represented with Brubaker and no, I'm sorry, Hackney, Speaker Hackney and myself and then when we found out we had a third, Representative Brown was there because every issue that came up that dealt with Moore County he knew about it and was telling me about it. It was great that I had his knowledge. I learned a lot from him on the annexation, which he was very passionate about, and it would just, unique relationship that Larry and I had by being a resident there in Moore County as well. I got a strange phone call one day and Larry asked me, he said, "hey do you want to go with me to Taiwan?" I thought, "well, you know I, are you talking to me?" And he said, "yeah." And I said, "well, who else is going?" He said, "well, just me and you." And I thought, "well you know, this is, yes." And so I did not turn him down and I will tell you that that was probably one of the greatest trips that I've been on with Larry and I will tell you that he was very respected by the Taiwanese people and that he had a great relationship with them and with, through the state of North Carolina at the House of Representatives. He introduced me to several people that are from the Economic Cultural Office in Atlanta and Larry had grown such a bond with North Carolina and the Taiwanian people that the General Director, Anna Kao, called me two days before Governor Pat McCrory was going to be at the Saturday inauguration and she said, "We want to come in respect to Larry Brown, to keep our relationship with the Governor's Office." And I said, "well you fly in and when you get downtown you let me know and I will meet you and I will try to introduce you to everybody. And Representative Stone and myself, we met Anna, Director General Anna, and we got her hooked up with Representative Fred Steen and they were able to meet with the Governor, sit in the parade review, and also meet with the Lieutenant Governor. And so Larry's legacy is still, will still live on as far as his commitment and the relationship that he built with the Taiwan Government. And at this time, Mr. Speaker, I'd like to, if I could, read a letter that was sent overnight from the Director General please? From the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Atlanta, January 31, 2013, the North Carolina House of Representatives. On behalf of the Republic of China, Taiwan, my colleagues and I of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Atlanta would like to express our appreciation and respect to the late Representative Larry Brown. Representative Brown was a generous, accomplished man of great integrity. He was a great friend of Taiwan and we are honored that he traveled to my country many times. He supported Taiwan in many, many ways. When he was Major of Cartersville, Representative Brown also dedicated his

efforts to establishing a sister city relationship between Kernersville and Dashi in 2004. Both cities have enjoined cordial, mutually-beneficial sister city relations since then, with a friendship that continues to grow. In appreciation of his steadfast support, our Taipei Economic and Cultural Office rescinded Representative Brown with a friend of foreign service medal in 2008. Representative Brown’s numerous accomplishments have benefited not only the people of North Carolina, but also the people of Taiwan. He was a man of the true spirit of giving. He will live on in our hearts. Warmest regards, Anna A. Kao, Director General of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Atlanta.” And I would ask that the letter will be spread across the journal, and I commend the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Without objection, both the letter and comments chaired today will be spread across the journal. Further discussion, further debate? If not, the question before the House is the adoption of House Resolution 3. All those in favor will vote aye. All those opposed will vote no. The Clerk will open the vote. All members wishing to record, please do so at this time. The Clerk will lock the machine and record the vote. 120 having voted in the affirmative and none in the negative, House Resolution 3 has been adopted and will be ordered printed. Ladies and gentlemen of the House, the Chair wishes to extend a welcome and an extension of our condolences to Martha Vance-Brown – Larry Brown’s wife, Vance Bertran, Susan Bertran and Dorothy Leman, Larry’s sister. Please stand and please accept out condolences. Ladies and gentlemen of the House, we have one matter left on the… actually two. The Chair does not anticipate that this will take much time, and if it does, the Chair may make a decision not to take any more time and to refer it, so I’ve been promised they will be prompt. We will begin with the bill that was added after we read in the committee reports, House Bill 5. The Clerk will read. [SPEAKER CHANGES] An act requiring the Department of Health and Human Services to provide temporary short-term financial assistance to group homes serving residents who lose eligibility for Medicaid-covered personal services. General Assembly of North Carolina enacts. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Representative Dollar, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES] To debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] The gentleman is recognized to debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Members of the House, most of you, probably three-quarters of you who were in Appropriations today heard the explanation and discussion, so I will be brief. What this bill does is it simply allows individuals in group home who no longer qualify as of January 1 this year for personal care services to be able to access temporary funds that run through the end of June of this year, and these funds were put forward in our budget bill last year for the purposes of allowing us to keep our adult care homes as well as group homes and other long-term care facilities up and running as we work though a host of industry issues, and we hopefully will be bringing some more permanent solutions to this body before the end of this session.

[SPEAKER CHANGES} in our view the General Assembly fully intended for individuals in group homes to be treated the same way a similarly situated individual in an adult care home would be treated with regard to a loss of personal care services due to changes in federal requirements and other requirements. This just simply makes that clear to the department to treat both those groups the same and follow the legislative intent. I would be pleased to answer any questions and I would appreciate your vote. [SPEAKER CHANGES} Representative Insko, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES} To debate the bill. [SPEAKER CHANGES} The lady is recognized to debate the bill.

A joint resolution providing for a joint session of the General Assembly to act on a joint resolution providing for the confirmation of appointments by the Governor of new members of State Board of Education. The House resolves, the Senate concurring. [SPEAKER CHANGES} Representative Moore, please state your purpose. [SPEAKER CHANGES} To debate the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES} The gentleman is recognized to debate the resolution. [SPEAKER CHANGES} Thank you Mr. Speaker. Members of the House, this resolution before you today simply lays out the procedure whereby we approve or confirm the appointments by the Governor to the State Board of Education. This was one of those processes that actually require a joint session of both the Senate and the House and so what this does is simply lay out the procedures where the President Pro Temp of the Senate and the Speaker will pick a date to have that joint session and would allow the process to move underway. There's a second resolution, I believe it's 21, that actually calls for the confirmation of these appointees. The House Education Committee will be taking that up I believe on Tuesday morning and that will be the actual substantive bill that we have. This is the procedural resolution. Would encourage your support. Be glad to answer any questions if there are any. Thank you. [SPEAKER CHANGES} Further discussion, further debate.
