Bill summary

Senate amendment makes the following changes to the 3rd edition.

Deletes the proposed changes to GS 115D-12, which made changes to the appointment of trustees for Stanly Community College.

Amends GS 115D-12 to further modify the method of appointment of the board of trustees of Cleveland Community College, now providing that the four trustees appointed under new Group Two appointed by the General Assembly are to have terms expiring in 2019 and 2021 (was, expiring in 2017 and 2019) and every four years thereafter. The changes to GS 115D-12 were applicable to both Cleveland Community College and Davidson County Community College; the amendment removes Davidson Community College. Amends the provision governing vacancies to require that a vacancy in Group 2 that was a governor appointee must be filled as provided in GS 120-122. Sets out the procedure that must be followed if the General Assembly is not in session when the vacancy arises to require the Governor to consult with the Speaker of the House before making the appointment for a term expiring in an odd year and to consult with the President Pro Tempore before making the appointment when the vacancy occurs in a term expiring in an even year. Requires that the Governor make an appointment within 30 days of receiving a written recommendation for the appointment. When the term expires, the member is to be appointed in accordance with GS 115D-12.

Deletes the proposed change to GS 115D-12, which made changes to the appointment of trustees for Brunswick Community College, Craven Community College, James Sprunt Community College, Lenoir Community College, and Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.
