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

    Modifies and makes organizational changes to the proposed changes to GS 20-114.1(c), which require that appointed traffic-control officers be at least 21 years old rather than 18 years old. Now conditions appointment as a traffic-control officer upon completion of either (1) three hours of training course in directing, controlling, or regulating traffic under the supervision of a law-enforcement officer or (2) eight hours of approved training through a course offered by the NC Community College System in directing, controlling, or regulating traffic, with four hours of classroom training or instruction and four hours of documented roadside training, with refresher training required for reappointment (previously, required at least four hours of roadside training and required completion of a training course in traffic laws and traffic control). No longer specifies that the training course and roadside training are to be conducted by the law enforcement agency issuing the authorization card for appointment, and that any costs of the training are the responsibility of the traffic control officer trainee. Additionally, extends the expiration of an appointed traffic-control officer's authorization card from two to three years, unless an earlier date is specified. Adds a new requirement for the expiration date to appear on the authorization card. Makes further technical changes, and makes language gender-neutral. Adds a new subsection (c1) to the statute, directing the NC Justice Academy to collaborate with the Community College System Office to develop the training program for traffic-control officers, including requirements for initial training and a refresher training. Requires the community college to provide documentation to verify completion of the initial or refresher training. Amends subsection (d) to specify that the required indemnity policy for the traffic-control officer cannot be cancelable within the authorization period. Adds a new requirement that when the required liability coverage is being provided by a person or entity other than the appointing law enforcement agency, the person seeking appointment as a traffic-control officer must present proof of liability coverage meeting the requirements of subsection (d) before an authorization card can be issued to the person. Maintains the act's effective date, October 1, 2019.

    Changes the act's titles.
