Bill summary

Readopts House Resolution 1044, which amends the 2019 House Permanent Rules set out in House Resolution 16, with the following changes.

Amends Rule 3(b) to decrease the maximum time required for response to an electronic roll call when the point of quorum is raised, from 40 to 30 minutes, unless the Chair directs otherwise without objection and the 61st vote is recorded.

Amends Rule 20 to decrease the required time allowed for voting on the question when the electronic voting system is used, from 40 to 30 minutes, unless the Chair directs otherwise without objection. 

Eliminates the changes to Rule 52, which closed the gallery to the public and allowed members to be seated in the gallery, thereby reverting to the original language of Rule 52 set out in House Resolution 16.

Eliminates the provisions allowing for members to cosponsor an introduced bill or resolution on the day the bill or resolution is first read and referred and while still in possession of the House.

Amends new Rule 61.3 regarding the expiration of the Rule modifications upon written objection of either the Majority or Minority Leader, to include the same upon written objection of the Speaker. Now requires the written objection to be received by the Principal Clerk on any Monday by 5:00 p.m. (previously, required receipt on one of three identified Mondays in May).

Makes technical changes to Rule 15.1 and Rule 61.3.

Changes the expiration of the resolution to the earlier of a properly submitted written objection or adjournment sine die of the 2019 NCGA (was, or May 31, 2020).
