TO CLARIFY THE EXCLUSION FROM ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW FOR PROJECTS RECEIVING ECONOMIC INCENTIVES.
Amends GS 113A-9 to define major environmental impact as any of the following: (1) a project that requires a permit under GS 143-215.1; (2) a project that requires a permit under GS 143-215.108; (3) a project that requires a major development permit under Article 7 of GS Chapter 113A; or (4) a project that requires approval of an erosion and sedimentation control plan under Article 4 of GS Chapter 113A.
Amends GS 113A-12 to specify that the subdivision that specifies that no environmental document is required with respect to certain projects for which public monies are expended only for the payment of incentives pursuant to an agreement that makes the incentive payments contingent on prior completion of the project or activity, or completion on a specified timetable, and a specified level of job creation or new capital investment, does not apply to projects that have a major environmental impact.
Applies to projects receiving economic incentive payments on or after the date the act becomes law.
