House amendment makes the following changes to the 3rd edition.
Modifies the following additional appropriations. Previously, appropriated $4.8 million in nonrecurring funds from the General Fund to the UNC Board of Governors (BOG) for the 2020-21 school year to be allocated to the Southern Regional Area Health Education Center (Center) to be used for residencies in the Center service areas and for facility and structural improvements associated with current residency programs. Now, directs the State Controller to transfer $4.8 million from the Coronavirus Relief Reserve to the Coronavirus Relief Fund (both established in SL 2020-4, 2020 Coronavirus Recovery Act), and appropriates the funds on a nonrecurring basis to the Office of State Budget and Management (OSBM) to be allocated to the BOG for 2020-21 for residencies in the Center service areas and for COVID-19 related response activities. Makes the general provisions of Part I of SL 2020-4 applicable to the funds and requires OSBM to include the funds in the report required under Section 1.7 of SL 2020-4.
