Adopts the permanent rules of the 2017 Regular Session of the House of Representatives as the permanent rules of the 2018 Third Extra Session with the following changes.

Amends Rule 1 to set the House to convene at 10:00 a.m. on the next legislative day when the House adjourns without having fixed an hour for reconvening. 

Provides that the membership of the Committee on Rules, Calendar, and Operations of the House; the Ethics Committee; the Finance Committee; and the Appropriations Committee consists of those who were appointed during the Regular Session and other members as the Speaker may appoint at the beginning of the Third Extra Session and that the committee chairs are those appointed by the Speaker during the Regular Session.

Establishes the standing committees of the House as: Rules, Calendar, and Operations of the House; Ethics; Finance; and Appropriations.

Requires that bills and resolutions be introduced by submitting the bill or resolution to the Principal Clerk's Office.

Limits resolutions that may be introduced or considered to a resolution adjourning the session. 

Limits bills that may be introduced or considered to those addressing emergency management and disaster recovery related to Hurricane Florence and resiliency planning for future natural disasters.

Exempts adjournment resolutions and bills addressing emergency management and disaster recovery related to Hurricane Florence and resiliency planning for future natural disasters from Rule 31.1 (concerning deadlines on introduction and receipt of bills, prohibiting blank bills, and imposing the 15-bill limit).

Allows a resolution or bill to be placed on the calendar without being referred to a committee and on the same legislative day of its introduction or receipt from the Senate. 

Allows a bill reported favorably by a committee or received for concurrence to be placed on the favorable calendar on the same day it is reported and does not require a proposed committee substitute to be distributed electronically to committee members before it is considered by the committee.

Allows a bill reducing revenue or waiving a fee to be reported to the Standing Committee on Appropriations instead of the Committee on Finance, and it does not need to be reported to the Committee on Finance.

Provides that the first reading and reference to a standing committee of a House bill occurs on the legislative day of its introduction and that the first reading and reference to a committee of a Senate bill occurs on the legislative day of its receipt on messages from the Senate. Requires the Speaker to give notice at each subsequent reading whether it is the second or third reading. Allows a bill to be read more than once on the same day, unless it is governed by Section 23 of Article II of the NC Constitution.

Allows a conference report to be placed on the calendar for the legislative day on which the report is received.

Places no limit on the number of members who can be listed as primary sponsors of a bill. Allows any member who wants to cosponsor an introduced bill or resolution to do so on the day during which the bill or resolution was first read and referred, but only while the House has possession of the bill or resolution.
