    Repeals Section 10.2 of SL 2013-413, which placed temporary limitations on the enactment of environmental ordinances by local governments, and required a related study. Requires the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to report to the Environmental Review Commission by November 1 of 2014 and 2015 on any local government ordinances that impinge or interfere with areas regulated by those departments.

    Enacts new GS 106-678 prohibiting local governments from adopting or continuing in effect any ordinance, rule, regulation, or resolution regulating fertilizer in any area subject to regulation by the Board of Agriculture. Provides that the statute does not prevent local governments from exercising planning and zoning authority, for fire prevention or inspection authority, nor does it limit the authority of DENR to enforce water quality standards.
