A BILL TO BE ENTITLED AN ACT TO MAKE TECHNICAL CORRECTIONS TO SESSION LAW 2014-17.
Enacts new GS 143-215.73F to establish the Shallow Draft Inlet Dredging Fund (Fund) as a special revenue fund. Specifies that revenue in the Fund may only be used on any dredging project designed to keep a shallow draft inlet located in North Carolina waters navigable and safe. Requires that projects funded from the Fund be cost shared with non-state money on a one-to-one basis. Enacts new subsection (a1) to GS 75A-5 to set out a schedule of fees based on vessel length for certificates of number for one-year periods and for three-year periods (previously, fee was $15 for one-year period and $40 for three-year period). Amends GS 75A-3(c) to direct the Wildlife Resources Commission (Commission) to transfer on a quarterly basis at least 50% of each one-year certificate of number fee and at least 50% of each three-year certificate of number fee collected under GS 75A-5 to the Fund. Amends GS 75A-38, directing the Commission to charge a fee of $30 (was, $20) to issue a new or transfer certificate of title under the vessel titling act. Directs the Commission to transfer on a quarterly basis at least $10 of this fee to the Fund.
Amends GS 75A-7 to remove the exemption from numbering requirements on vessels with a valid marine document issued by the Customs Bureau. Amends GS 75A-34 to clarify that a vessel must be titled in North Carolina if the vessel's documentation with the US Coast Guard has expired or been deleted.
