    House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.

    Further amends the membership of the NC Longitudinal Data System Board (Board) set out in GS 116E-3 to reduce the Board from 18 to 17 members. Adds the State Treasurer or the Treasurer's designee as a member of the Board. Eliminates the six public members appointed by the General Assembly upon recommendation of three public members each by the President Pro Tempore and the Speaker.

Adds that the four advisory members of the General Assembly are nonvoting members of the Board and cannot serve as chair or vice-chair. Adds new provisions to subsection (e) providing that one advisory member is to be jointly designated by the Speaker and the President Pro Tempore to call an initial meeting of the Board upon appointment of a majority of the appointed members, and that the chair of the Board must be elected at the initial meeting. 

    Modifies Section 5 to delete the provision reinstating GS 120-123(81) as it existed before its repeal.
