AN ACT TO MAKE TECHNICAL CORRECTIONS TO THE GENERAL STATUTES, AS RECOMMENDED BY THE GENERAL STATUTES COMMISSION.
House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.
Amends GS 122C-263 and GS 122C-283 by removing redundant language, now providing that a law enforcement officer or individual required to provide transportation under GS 122C-251(g) must take the respondent to a facility or other location identified by the LME/MCO in the community crisis services plan that has an available commitment examiner and is capable of performing a first examination in conjunction with a health screening at the same location, unless circumstances indicate the respondent appears to be suffering a medical emergency, in which case the law enforcement officer will seek immediate medical assistance. Also amends those statutes to refer to "individuals with mental illnesses" instead of to the "mentally ill." Further amends GS 122C-283 by making clarifying changes and making language gender-neutral. Applies to proceedings initiated on or after October 1, 2019.
Amends GS 143B-139.4B by making clarifying changes.
