Bill summary

Conference report makes the following changes to the 5th edition.

Deletes proposed GS 20-53.6, permitting an owner of an all-terrain vehicle or a utility vehicle to apply to the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for a certificate of title upon submitting an application with specified content and paying the $52 application fee. Deletes the conforming changes to GS 20-54.

Amends GS 20-286(10), excluding modified utility vehicles from the definition of motor vehicle, as the term is used in Article 12, Motor Vehicle Dealers and Manufacturers Licensing Law.

Revises the directive set forth in Section 3, now requiring the Department of Transportation (DOT), Ferry Division, to lease a passenger ferry for operation between Hatteras and Ocracoke for a term to end by August 15, 2021 (was, September 12, 2021), and requiring DOT to use $700,000 (was, $943,000) of the funds appropriated from the Highway Fund to DOT in SL 2020-91 (DOT 2020-21 FY Budget/Governance) to lease and operate the ferry. Adds new requirements for the Ferry Division to exercise the opt-out clause of the lease when it determines the State-owned ferry for passenger service on the identified route can be operationalized within 30 days if the cost of opting out is less than the cost of completing the lease term. Requires any remaining funds at the lease's expiration or termination to be deposited in the Ferry Statewide reserve account in accordance with State law. 

Changes the act's long title.
