    Senate committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes.

    Amends the proposed changes to GS 162-5.1, which provides that if there is a vacancy in the office of sheriff, the coroner of the county must execute all process directed to the sheriff until the board elects a new sheriff, and sets out additional requirements for filling the sheriff vacancy. Now removes Cleveland County from the scope of the statute (previously, removed Alexander County, which was since removed by SL 2019-5). Makes conforming changes to the act's titles.

    Specifies that the act applies to vacancies occurring on or after the date the act becomes law.
