Includes a new amendment to GS 146-9, Disposition of mineral deposits in State lands not under water. The new subsection allows the Department of Administration (Department) to solicit competitive bids for lease of mineral deposits using upset bids. Upset bids are inreased or raised bids whereby a person offers an amount exceeding the highest bid received in the initial solicitation, or the last upset bid, by a minimum of 5%. Sets forth provisions governing the competitive bidding process using upset bids, including notice, procedure, deposits, deadlines, and cash bonds. The Department may adopt rules to implement the amendment.

Repeals section 27.8 of SL 2015-241, which rewrites GS 20-7.4(b) to require that grants from the License to Give Trust Fund be matching grants that match, on a dollar-for-dollar basis, nongrant funds provided by the grantee.
