House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st ed.:
Clarifies the new GS 115D-6.5(a) that the State Board of Community Colleges [State Board] defines what constitutes sound fiscal and management practices to be followed by community college boards of trustees, and adds authorization for the State Board to appoint an advisory committee to assist colleges that are required to take remedial action. Advisory committees must include representatives of the State Board, the NC Association of Community College Trustees, the NC Association of Community College Presidents, and the System Office.
Modifies the new GS 115D-6.5(b) regarding removal of college board of trustee members to clarify that removal of trustee leadership may include the chair and vice-chair. Provides that the original appointing authority must fill the vacancy of removed members. Expands the State Board’s removal authority to include the entire membership of the college board of trustees where the college board continues to fail to comply with state laws and sound fiscal management after removal of the college board’s leadership. Limits removal of the entire college board to situations where remedial actions required under subsection (b) have not corrected identified problems.
Modifies the new GS 115D-6.5(c) to clarify that, in the event of removal of the entire board, the State Board must consult with the advisory committee assisting that college on the membership of the college’s interim board of trustees. Requires members of the interim board to be residents of the administrative area of the college.
Amends GS 115D-18 to require college boards of trustees to elect a chair and vice-chair at the first meeting held on or after July 1 (was at the first meeting after the board’s selection). Modifies the number of times a college board must meet from once every three months to six times a year.
Adds new section amending GS 90-2(a) amending the membership of the North Carolina Medical Board as follows: (1) reduces the number of general members recommended by the Review Panel and appointed by the Governor who must be licensed physicians from seven to six and (2) increases the number of members appointed by the governor from four to five and requires the fifth gubernatorial appointee to be a doctor of osteopathy or a full-time medical school faculty member who utilizes integrative medicine in that physician’s clinical practice.

Enacts new GS 115D-6.5 (Notice of noncompliance; appointment of an interim board of trustees). Authorizes the State Board of Community Colleges to direct a board of trustees of a community college to immediately remedy a willful or grossly negligent noncompliance with State laws, rules, and sound fiscal management practices.

Adoption of such a resolution vacates the terms of all members serving on that board of trustees. Directs the State Board of Community Colleges to appoint an interim five-member board of trustees for up to twelve months, upon adoption of the resolution. Directs the State Board of Community Colleges to report adoption of such a resolution to the General Assembly within 60 days of adoption, along with any necessary legislative recommendations for the future governance of the community college.
