AN ACT TO CLARIFY THE PRIORITY STATUS OF A LIEN HELD BY THE NORTH CAROLINA STATE HEALTH PLAN FOR TEACHERS AND STATE EMPLOYEES AND TO CLARIFY THE LIEN PRIORITY OF THE TEACHERS' AND STATE EMPLOYEES' RETIREMENT SYSTEM AS IT PERTAINS TO CHARTER SCHOOL PAYMENT PLANS.
Amends GS 135-48.37, GS 44-49, and GS 44-50 to specify that liens held by the State Health Plan for Teachers and State Employees has priority over all nongovernmental medical liens and rights (previously, all nongovernmental liens and rights).
Adds to Section 3 of SL 2018-84, concerning charter schools entering into a withdrawal liability payment plan after electing to cease participation in the Teachers' and State Employees' Retirement System (Retirement System). Establishes that any charter school entering into a withdrawal liability payment plan before June 14, 2023, will have a full three years to complete the payment plan. Adds that the lien priority of the Retirement System over nongovernmental liens and rights that have attached to the applicable property on or after the effective date of SL 2018-84 applies during the entire period of the payment plan. Sunsets Section 3 of SL 2018-84 (which provides for the withdrawal liability payment plans rather than one lump sum payment for charter schools ceasing participation in the Retirement System) on June 14, 2023.
