House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.
Narrows the scope of proposed GS 7B-1605, now granting district courts exclusive original jurisdiction over any case involving a juvenile who is alleged to be delinquent (was, delinquent or vulnerable) as the result of an act committed within the boundaries of a military installation of the US Department of Defense that is a crime or infraction under State law (was, a violation of State law) when concurrent jurisdiction has been established pursuant to GS 104-11.1, as amended by the act. Makes conforming changes to the statute's title.
Instead, accounts for state jurisdiction of vulnerable juveniles in such circumstances by expanding the definition of vulnerable juvenile under Subchapter II, GS Chapter 7B, which governs undisciplined and delinquent juveniles, to include any juvenile who, while less than 10 years of age but at least 6 years of age, commits an act within the boundaries of a military installation that is a crime or infraction under State law, and who is not a delinquent juvenile.
Changes the act's long title.
