Bill summary

Recodifies GS 75-90(a)(1) as GS 75-90(a)(1a).

Amends GS 75-90 concerning the availability of gasoline suitable for blending with fuel alcohol, adding new definitions for the section, including blended fuel and blendstock. Provides that suppliers that import gasoline or blendstock (previously just gasoline) into one or more terminals must comply with specified requirements, including that they must offer each grade of gasoline imported to the terminal for sale to a distributor or retailer at that terminal without preblending it with fuel alcohol. Also adds new requirement that each grade of blendstock imported to the terminal be offered for sale by the supplier to a distributor or retailer at that terminal. Adds clarifying language in regards to above requirements.

Enacts new GS 75-90(d), providing that the Attorney General is authorized to investigate all allegations of a violation of GS 75-90 made by a supplier or any allegations of unfair competition by a supplier concerning the sale of the products regulated by this statute. If a violation is disclosed, the Attorney General can exercise any powers contained in GS 75-85.

Effective October 1, 2015.
