House committee substitute amends the 1st edition as follows.
Adds upon and makes organizational changes to the proposed new language in GS 143-214.7 regarding stormwater runoff rules and programs. Moves the new provision added to existing subsection (b3) to new subsection (b4), which specifies that the addition of new administrative requirements to an existing permit or certification, including annual compliance certification requirements, are not considered a new or increased stormwater control (which are prohibited by the statute as applicable to preexisting development). Regarding the requirement in new subsection (b4) for permittees of new stormwater permits and stormwater permits that are reissued due to transfer, modification, or renewal to submit an annual certification on the project's conformance with permit conditions, adds that the annual certification must be completed by the permit holder or their designee. Bars the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) from requiring the annual certification to be completed by any other party. Additionally, directs DEQ to provide electronic means for submission of the annual certification.
