AN ACT AUTHORIZING COUNTIES AND CITIES TO ATTACH AND GARNISH A MEMBER OF THE GOVERNING BODY IF THE COUNTY OR CITY HAS BEEN GRANTED A MONEY JUDGMENT AGAINST THAT MEMBER AND THE MONEY JUDGMENT HAS NOT BEEN SATISFIED.
House committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes. Deletes the proposed language in new GS 160A-64.1 and new GS 153A-30. Provides instead in those statutes that in addition to any other enforcement available, the finance officer obtaining a final judgment awarding monetary damages against an elected or appointed member of the city council may enforce the final judgment using remedies in GS 105-336(b) or the procedure for attachment and garnishment in GS 105-368 as if the judgment was delinquent taxes and as if the finance officer was the tax collector.
Applies to final judgments awarding monetary damages that are unsatisfied or entered on or after October 1, 2013.
