House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 2nd edition.

Section 7

Eliminates proposed GS 143B-1403(a1), which provided that no subscriber or communications service provider is liable to any person or entity for billing or remitting a different number of 911 service charges than that required by the Part for any services billed prior to 180 days following the date the act becomes law. Amends GS 143B-1406(f), concerning the requirements to be met in order for a PSAP to receive a distribution, by limiting the telecommunicators' required courses to those telecommunicators who are not required to be certified by the North Carolina Sheriffs' Education and Training Standards Commission.
