Bill summary

House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.

Authorizes Henderson County (County) to construct or renovate (was, construct only) community college buildings, as defined in GS 143-336 to mean all buildings, utilities, and other property developments located at a community college as defined under GS 115D-2(2), on the campus of Blue Ridge Community College (College) located in Henderson County. 

Deletes language which previously cited statutes and regulations that the County did not have to comply with. Makes organizational changes, listing out the compliance requirements in a six item list, which also includes that the County must fund all projects entirely with County funds (previously not included). 

Sets a deadline of within 30 days of the effective date of the act for the Board of Trustees of the College (Board) to transfer title to the described property to the County for the life of the debt incurred by the County for the construction or renovation of the community college buildings. 

Provides that the County must transfer title back to the Board if no debt has been incurred by the property for the construction or renovation of community college buildings on or before December 31, 2020. Also requires the County to transfer the title back to the Board upon satisfaction of any incurred debt against the property.

Allows the county and Board to enter into a lease agreement (was, a memorandum of understanding for building construction).

Makes technical and clarifying changes.

Amends the effective date clauses now providing that the provisions in Section 1 and 2 are effective when they become law and apply only to construction projects and renovations funded entirely with County funds and coordinated by the County for College uses and purposes between January 1, 2014, and December 31, 2020, with the remainder of the act effective when the bill becomes law without any specified application requirements.
