Amends GS 28A-9-2(a), allowing letters testamentary, letters of administration, or letters of collection to be revoked without a hearing when the person to whom the letters were issued violated a fiduciary duty through default or misconduct in the execution of office.
Repeals GS 7A-171.2(a) (requires a magistrate be a resident of the county for which he was appointed). Amends GS 44A-16, allowing a clerk to release funds held under a claim of lien on real property or a corporate surety bond when the clerk receives a written agreement of the parties, a final judgment from a court of competent jurisdiction, or a consent order. Amends GS 163-1(d), clarifying that the term of office for the clerk of superior court runs for four years, from the first day (rather than first Monday) in December next after election. Amends GS 50-13.1(c), which allows the court to waive the mandatory setting of a contested custody or visitation matter for mediation upon motion and a showing of good cause, to permit (rather than require) the court to consider a showing that either party lives more than 50 miles from the court as good cause. Amends GS 7A-38.2(d), adding that certification and renewal fees collected by the Dispute Resolution Commission are nonreverting, to be used only at the direction of the Commission.
Effective July 1, 2011.

S 581 (2011-2012) CLARIFY MOTOR VEHICLE LAWS. Filed Apr 12 2011, TO CLARIFY THAT A SECURITY INTEREST IN A TITLE SHALL BE RELEASED AFTER SATISFACTION AND TO RESTRICT FRANCHISED MOTOR VEHICLE DEALERS PLATES TO AN OFFICER, SALES REPRESENTATIVE, OR OTHER EMPLOYEE OF A FRANCHISED MOTOR VEHICLE DEALER OR AN IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBER OF AN OFFICER, SALES REPRESENTATIVE, OR OTHER EMPLOYEE OF A FRANCHISED MOTOR VEHICLE DEALER.

Amends GS 20-58.4 to clarify that, upon satisfaction or other discharge of a security interest in a vehicle for which the certificate of title is in the possession of the secured party, the secured party must, within the earlier of 10 days after demand or 30 days after satisfaction, release the security interest as specified. Amends GS 20-79(d)(5) to provide that a dealer license plate may be displayed only on a motor vehicle that, among other requirements, is driven by an officer, sales representative, or employee of a franchised motor vehicle dealer, or the immediate family member of one of those parties. Applies to offenses committed and security interests satisfied on or after August 1, 2011.

S 582 (2011-2012) AUTHORIZE INDIAN GAMING/REVENUE (NEW). Filed Apr 12 2011, TO CLARIFY THAT THE NORTH CAROLINA GENERAL ASSEMBLY MUST ACT TO LEGALIZE ANY ADDITIONAL CLASS III GAMING ON INDIAN LANDS.

Current law authorizes the Governor to negotiate and enter into Class III Tribal-State gaming compacts on behalf of the state, and directs the Governor to report any gaming compact to the Joint Legislative Commission on Governmental Operations. This act amends GS 147-12(a)(14) (powers and duties of the Governor) to authorize the Governor to negotiate gaming compacts. After negotiation and execution of a compact, directs the Governor to submit a copy of the compact to the President Pro Tempore of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and the Secretary of State. Requires the compact to be ratified by both houses of the legislature by a majority vote of the members present, in order for the compact to be effective. Instructs the Secretary of State to forward a copy of the executed compact and the ratifying act to the US Secretary of the Interior for review and approval. Makes a conforming change to GS 71A-8, authorizing federally recognized Indian tribes to conduct games in accordance with federal law and a valid tribal-state compact executed by the Governor, ratified by the North Carolina General Assembly, and approved by the US Department of the Interior.

Intro. by Apodaca.GS 71A, GS 147
S 583 (2011-2012) LAW ENFORCEMENT ON INTERSTATE HIGHWAYS. Filed Apr 12 2011, TO ALLOW ONLY STATE LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES TO CONDUCT ENFORCEMENT OPERATIONS ON AN INTERSTATE HIGHWAY UNLESS A LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY HAS RECEIVED A REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE FROM A STATE LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY OR THE LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY IS RESPONDING TO AN EMERGENCY SITUATION OR INVESTIGATING A CRASH.

Amends GS 20-114 to provide that it is the duty of every city or village police officer and every sheriff, deputy sheriff and other county officers to arrest those committing a violation within the limits of their jurisdiction, except on the interstate highways. Further adds the requirement that a local law enforcement officer enforce the Article (Motor Vehicle Act), despite the new limitation, if the officer (1) has been requested to assist a State law enforcement officer in enforcing the Article, (2) is responding to an emergency situation within the officer’s territorial jurisdiction, or (3) is investigating a crash within the officer’s territorial jurisdiction. Provides that prosecutions for offenses committed before the date that the act becomes law are not abated or affected by the act and the statutes that would be applicable but for the act remain applicable to those prosecutions.
