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

    Eliminates the act's appropriations from the General Fund to the UNC Board of Governors (UNC BOG) and the Office of State Budget and Management for 2020-21 to be allocated and held in reserve for the NC School of Science and Mathematics (NCSSM). Instead provides for the following.

    Directs OSBM to adjust the appropriations for related State retirement contributions, representing a decrease in General Fund net appropriations totaling $3,340,591 in recurring funds for 2020-21. Appropriates this amount of funds now available in the General Fund to UNC BOG on a recurring basis for 2020-21 to be allocated to NCSSM for operating funds, purchase of equipment and supplies, and to establish 46 new positions at the Morganton Campus.

    Modifies the legislative intent to appropriate from the General Fund to UNC Board of Governors the specified amounts in the 2021-22, 2022-23, and 2023-24 fiscal years or any financial obligations incurred to open and operate the Morganton campus, to add an intent to appropriate $2,608,160 in recurring funds for the 2021-22 fiscal year. Makes additional technical changes.

    No longer provides for the act to supersede H 966 (2019 Appropriations Act) if that act becomes law.

    Reenacts and incorporates by reference the State Budget Act, GS Chapter 143.

    Provides for the validity of 2019 legislation appropriating funds to entities covered by the act, unless expressly repealed or amended.

    Maintains the act's effective date of July 1, 2020.
