Enacts new GS 120-19.10 requiring each Senate Appropriations Committee and House Appropriations Subcommittee to meet jointly within 90 days after the State Auditor publishes an audit that reviews a state agency or program within the funding jurisdiction of those committees. Requires the committee and subcommittee to review the Auditor's report and determine whether any of the recommended efficiencies or improves requires legislative action, and if so, and the committees agree to the recommendations, then the committees may recommend proposed legislation during the next regular session. Such legislation is exempt from the filing deadlines and is eligible for consideration in both chambers.
