Bill summary

Senate committee substitute makes the following changes to the 3rd edition.

Part IV

Requires calculation of the motor fuel excise tax for the period beginning January 1, 2022, using the amount the tax rate would have been for the preceding calendar year calculated but for the calculation required under Section 4.2 of the act (previously, called for calculation based on the amount for the preceding calendar year as calculated under the Section).

Amends GS 136-41.3 to expand the permitted uses of funds allocated to municipalities by the Department of Transportation (DOT) described, including repairs to roadways and construction of bikeways, greenways, or sidewalks, making the authorizations applicable to funds allocated under GS 136-41.1 in addition to those allocated under GS 136-41.2. Also requires municipalities to strongly prefer the use of seeds classified as native to the state when the use of funds under the statute includes landscaping.
