Bill summary

Amends GS 115D-12, as amended by SL 2011-175, to modify the appointment method for trustees of Stanly Community College, providing that the four trustees appointed under Group Two by the Governor must now be appointed by the General Assembly. The Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate must each recommend two individuals for appointment. The Speaker of the House will make recommendations for the terms expiring in 2017 and 2019, with the President Pro Tempore recommending individuals for terms expiring in 2018 and 2020. 

Makes conforming and technical changes. 

Amends the process for filling any vacancies that have occurred, requiring vacancies in Group One to be filled by the agencies authorized to select trustees for that group. Provides that if a vacancy is not filled within 60 days in Group One, then the Governor can fill the vacancy by appointment. Adds language requiring vacancies in Group Two to be filled pursuant to GS 120-122 (Vacancies in legislative appointments) (previously, all vacancies were to be filled by the agency or agencies authorized to select the trustees of that group).

Provides that the current members of the Stanly Community College Board of Trustees will serve the remainder of their terms. As terms expire or a vacancy occurs trustee members will be appointed in accordance with GS 115D-12, as amended by this act.  If a vacancy occurs in a Group Two seat that was appointed by the Governor, that seat will be filled by joint recommendation of the Speaker of the House and President Pro Tempore of the Senate. Once that term expires, the new trustee will be appointed in accordance with GS 115D-12, as amended by this act.

This act applies only to Stanly Community College.
