AN ACT TO PROTECT THE CITIZENS OF NORTH CAROLINA FROM THE FERRY TAX AND TO APPROPRIATE FUNDS TO THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION FOR FERRY VESSEL REPLACEMENT.
Identical to S 792, filed 5/19/14.
Amends GS 136-82 to remove the Department of Transportation's (DOT) power to prescribe and collect ferry tolls. Allows DOT to allow ferry sponsorships and extends permissable advertising to allow advertising at ferry facilities in addition to within ferry vessels. Allows DOT to issue rules to implement provisions concerning these and related receipt-generating activities. Makes conforming and clarifying changes.
Effective July 1, 2014, appropriates $5 million for the Highway Fund to DOT in recurring funds to be allocated to the Division of Ferries for ferry vessel replacement.
