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

Changes the act's long title.

Adds new Part III providing the following.

Enacts a new subsubsection to GS 20-79.4(b), creating an "Order of the Eastern Star  Prince Hall Affiliated" registration plate. Establishes a special plate fee of $20 and adds new subsection to GS 20-81.12 requiring $10 of that amount be transferred quarterly to the Grand Chapter Order of the Eastern Star, PHA. Authorizes the Revisor of Statutes to reorganize the special registration plates listed in GS 20-79.4(b). Effective February 1, 2019.

Reenacts GS 20-63(b1)(47) and GS 20-79.4(b)(g) as they existed immediately before their expiration to authorize the Division of Motor Vehicles (Division) to produce and issue an Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity special registration plate. Reenacts and modifies the expired provisions regarding the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity special registration plate set out in subsections (a1) and (b) of GS 20-79.7 and subsection (b39) of GS 20-81.12, establishing a special plate fee of $30 and requiring that $20 of that amount be transferred quarterly to the Education Consortium of North Carolina Inc. (previously, to the Association of North Carolina Alphamen Educational Foundation) for scholarships for the benefit of African American males attending accredited North Carolina colleges and universities. Further amends GS 20-81.12(b39), as reenacted, eliminating the requirement that the Division must receive at least 300 applications for the special plate before it can be developed. Effective February 1, 2019.

Further amends GS 20-79.7, increasing the special registration plate fee for the Wildlife Resources plate from $20 to $30, and requiring that $20 instead of $10 of that amount be transferred quarterly to the Wildlife Conservation Account as specified in GS 20-81.12(b3).

Further amends GS 20-79.7, setting the special registration plate fee for the International Association of Fire Fighters special registration at $20, and requiring that $10 of that amount be transferred quarterly to the Professional Firefighters of North Carolina Charitable Fund in accordance with GS 20-81.12. Makes conforming changes. 

Adds new Part IV providing the following. 

Modifies GS 20-37.16, which exempts from the commercial drivers license (CDL) requirements certain classes of vehicles. Provides an exemption from the CDL requirements for any vehicle when used as firefighting or emergency equipment for the purpose of preserving life or property or to execute governmental functions (previously, to execute emergency governmental functions). Specifies that governmental functions include but are not limited to necessary maintenance, training, or required operation for official business of the department.

Repeals GS 20-190.2, which required the Department of Transportation to erect signs on highways entering the state that indicate highways are patrolled by unmarked police vehicles. 

Makes conforming changes to renumber Parts of the act.
