Bill summary

House amendments make the following changes to the 2nd edition.

Amendment #1 makes organizational and technical changes, dividing the provisions of GS 14-196.3(b)(5)d. into two subsubdivisions, d. and e., and re-lettering the remaining subsubdivisions accordingly.

Amendment #2 rewrites GS 14-196.3(b)(5)b. to provide that the prohibition against knowingly installing or placing an electronic tracking device, without consent, for the purpose of tracking a person, does not apply to the installation of an electronic tracking device by the parent or legal guardian of a minor on any vehicle owned or leased by that parent or legal guardian of the minor and operated by the minor. Provides that this exception does not apply if there is a domestic violence protective order in place unless the parent or legal guardian subject to the order has custody of the minor.
