    House committee substitute deletes the provisions of the 1st edition and now provides the following.

    Amends Section 3.11 of SL 2018-13, which modifies Sections 30.8 and 30.9 of SL 2013-281. Makes technical corrections to refer instead to SL 2013-381, which requires the decertification of certified direct record electronic (DRE) voting systems that do not use paper ballots and prohibits their use in any election held on or after December 1, 2019. Makes other technical changes.

    Allows the State Board of Elections (State Board) to authorize a county board of elections to use a direct record electronic (DRE) voting system in any election prior to December 1, 2020, so long as the county board submits a request to the State Board and sufficient information for the State Board by December 1, 2020, to conclude the use will not jeopardize election security.

    Amends the act's titles.

    Identical to S 6, filed 1/30/19.

    Authorizes the Board of Trustees (Board) of the College of Albermarle (College) to expend State funds appropriated for capital improvements for the construction and renovation of educational facilities owned by or located on property owned by Dare County. Specifically includes authorization to raze some or all of the existing Old Manteo Middle School campus and to construct a multi-use facility upon the campus for use by the College. Sets the lease period of any facility constructed or renovated under the act's authority at a minimum of 30 years. Allows for a prorated return of the building cost supported by State funds, amortized over the lease period, to the College if Dare County terminates the lease through no fault of the College.

    Provides that State funds appropriated as described above and derived from the proceeds of Connect NC Bonds must be expended on capital facilities costs that are to be used by the College to carry out its community college purposes. Requires leases to contain adequate provisions to assure the restriction is met.

    Permits the Board to contract for the renovation or construction of educational facilities as described with Dare County without being subject to the provisions of GS 143-341 (concerning the powers and duties of the Department of Administration).

    Applies only to capital improvement projects with construction contracts executed prior to July 1, 2022.
