Bill summary

House committee substitute to the 3rd edition adds the following.

Amends GS 20-28.9 to authorize and require the State Surplus Property Agency (Agency) to enter into two contracts for regional services to tow, store, process, maintain, and sell motor vehicles seized under GS 20-28.3, which provides for seizure of a motor vehicle for impaired driving offenses under certain conditions (previously, the Agency was authorized to enter into a contract for a statewide service or contracts for regional services). Adds a new requirement for the Agency to select one separate vendor for each of the contracts let pursuant to the provision.

Amends GS 20-28.3(i), concerning the expedited sale of seized motor vehicles in certain cases, to allow the Agency, in addition to the county board of education, to sell a motor vehicle any time the outstanding towing and storage costs exceed 85% of the fair market value of the vehicle, or with the owner's consent. 

Makes conforming changes to the act's titles.
