Enacts new Article 31A, State Insurance of Public Education Property, of GS Chapter 58, that provides the following. Sets forth defined terms, including defining public education board (board) to mean local boards of education, board of trustees of regional schools, and boards of trustees of community colleges. Places management and operation responsibilities of a system of insurance for public education property with the Commissioner.

Provides an avenue for a board to demonstrate the property can be restored to insurable condition.
Directs the Commissioner to adopt rules providing for property insurance on property insured by the Fund against all risks of direct physical loss not otherwise insured against under the Article (as the Article's definition of insurable hazards includes an exclusive list of perils). Requires losses covered by the additional insurance to be paid out of the Fund in the same manner as fire and extended coverage losses. Requires the premiums to be paid as fixed by the Commissioner. Subjects the additional insurance to provisions and stipulations on policy forms approved by the Commissioner.

The Daily Bulletin: 2019-06-27
House committee substitute to the 2nd edition deletes the provisions of the previous edition and replaces it with the following.
Enacts Article 50A, Association Health Plans, to GS Chapter 58. Requires all association health plans delivered or issued for delivery in the state to be in compliance with GS Chapter 58, regardless of the domicile of the sponsoring association receiving the policy. Defines associated health plan to mean a fully insured group health insurance policy sponsored by a sponsoring association and offered or sold to members of the sponsoring association, to provide health benefits, as permitted under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, its implementing regulations, and GS Chapter 58. Defines sponsoring association to mean an association comprised of one or more employer members that provides an association health plan to its employer members; provided that it meets the other requirements of Article 50A, a sponsoring association is treated as an employer of a single group health plan under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, its implementing regulations, and GS Chapter 58. Defines employer member to mean a sole proprietorship, or an individual or entity employing at least one person, which is a member of a sponsoring association.
Specifies that nothing in new Article 50A, Association Health Plans, regulates or prohibits any group health insurance policy that is not an association health plan. Prohibits any insurer from delivering or issuing for delivery an association health plan (plan) to a sponsoring association unless the sponsoring association meets five specified requirements, including (1) having at least one substantial business purpose unrelated to the offering and providing of health insurance or other employee benefits to its employer members and their employees, (2) having registered as a multiple employer welfare arrangement (MEWA) with the Insurance Commissioner, and (3) having a commonality of interest shared among the employer members based on either the establishment by employer members in the same trade/industry/business/profession, or by employer members as a statewide association in an area that does not exceed state boundaries.
Sets out employer membership requirements to obtain coverage under a plan, requiring the employer member to be a member of the sponsoring association and either be domiciled or have a principal headquarters or administrative office in the State, or be licensed by the State agency for the employer member's industry, trade, or profession. Limits the provision of coverage to eligible employees and individuals paid on an IRS Form 1099, as specified. Allows providing coverage to the spouse or dependent children of any eligible individual. Requires employer members to commit to remaining members of the sponsoring association and receiving and paying for benefits under the plan for a period of at least two years.
Sets five criteria a plan must meet, including that the plan can neither be offered nor advertised to the public generally, and the plan must provide a level of coverage that is at least 60% of the actuarial value of allowed costs for covered benefits.
Requires a sponsoring association to meet five specified solvency requirements before it can be delivered or issued for delivery of a plan.
Prohibits a plan or sponsoring association from conditioning eligibility for coverage on any health-status factor, including claims experience, evidence of insurability, and disability, among others. Permits a plan or sponsoring association to make rating distinctions among its employer members on factors other than health-status factors, so long as the rating distinction is not directed at individual beneficiaries or based on a health factor specifically identified by the statute. Prohibits plans from imposing limitations based on preexisting conditions. Clarifies that the statute does not require a plan to provide particular benefits other than those provided in the plan's terms, or otherwise required by law, nor prevents the plan from establishing limitations or restrictions on the amount, level, extent, or nature of the benefits or coverage for similarly situated individuals enrolled in the plan.
Prohibits a plan or sponsoring association from requiring any individual, as a condition of initial or continued enrollment in the plan, to pay a premium or contribution greater than the premium or contribution for a similarly situated individual enrolled in the plan on the basis of any health-status factor in relation to the individual or to an individual enrolled in the plan as a dependent of the individual. Clarifies that the statute does not restrict the amount an insurer can charge for coverage under a plan, or prevent an insurer from establishing premium discounts or modifying otherwise applicable co-payments or deductibles for an association health plan in return for adherence to programs of health promotion and disease prevention.
Specifies that Article 50A does not preclude a sponsoring association from engaging a broker or agent licensed to sell insurance in the state for purposes of reviewing and considering any plan.

|Intro. by Bishop, Krawiec, Edwards.||GS 58|
House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 4th edition.
Amends new GS 14-318.6 as follows. Eliminates the defined term crime of abuse. Instead, defines serious bodily injury, serious physical injury, sexually violent offense, and violent offense. Adds to the defined term juvenile, specifying that the age of the juvenile at the time of the abuse of offense governs for purposes of the statute. Now requires any person 18 years or older who knows or should have reasonably known that a juvenile has been or is the victim of a violent offense, sexual offense, or misdemeanor child abuse, to immediately report the case to the appropriate law enforcement agency in the county where the juvenile resides or is found (previously, required a person or institution who suspects a juvenile has been the victim of a felony or a crime of abuse to immediately report as provided). Amends the information required of the report to include, if known, the name, address, and age of the person who committed the offense, the location of the offense, and the nature and extent of any injury or condition resulting from the offense or abuse (was, abuse). Modifies the penalty provisions to now make it a Class 1 misdemeanor for any person 18 years or older who knows or should have reasonably known that a juvenile was the victim of a violent offense, a sexual offense, or misdemeanor child abuse and knowingly or willfully fails to make the required report or prevent another from making the required report (mirroring the modified duty provisions). Grants civil and criminal immunity to anyone who makes a report in good faith, cooperates with law enforcement, or testifies resulting from a law enforcement report or investigation.
Adds a new duty for any law enforcement officer who finds, as a result of a report, evidence that a juvenile may be abused, neglected, or dependent, to make an oral report as soon as practicable and make a subsequent written report to the director of the department of social services within 48 hours after discovery of the evidence. Requires the director to make a prompt and thorough assessment to determine whether protective services should be provided or the complaint filed as a petition.
Clarifies that the statute does not affect statutory privileges, as specified.
Amends GS 15-4 to identify five misdemeanor crimes which must be charged within 10 years of the commission of the crime (under current law, the statute of limitations for misdemeanor is two years; previously, amended to extend the statute of limitations to 10 years for crimes of abuse). The identified misdemeanors include: failure to report abuse, neglect, dependency, or death due to maltreatment; sexual battery; indecent liberties between children; misdemeanor child abuse; and failure to report crimes against juveniles.
Modifies the proposed changes to GS 14-202.5, making it a Class H felony for a high-risk sex offender to pose falsely as a person under 16 years old online with the intent to commit an unlawful sex act with a person the offender believes is under 16 years old (previously, did not include mens rea). Modifies the qualifications for a high-risk sex offender, now including that the registered sex offender is a recidivist, with one offense against a person under 18 years old (previously, required recidivist status to be based on an offense against a person under 18 years old).
Eliminates the proposed changes to GS 14-208.7, which required sex offender registration forms for high risk sex offenders to include IP addresses under the registrant's control or custody. Makes conforming deletions to proposed GS 14-208.11(a)(11) and GS 14-208.9(g).
Makes organizational and technical changes. Amends the act's long title.
House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 3rd edition.
Reorganizes the existing provisions under Part I and adds the following provisions.
Now prohibits the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) from deploying the child welfare case-management component of the NC FAST system statewide prior to May 1, 2020 (was, October 1, 2019).
Directs the Joint Legislative Program Evaluation Oversight Committee to revise the 2019-20 work plan for PED to include a study of the case management functionality of the child welfare component of NC FAST. Directs PED to submit its evaluation to the specified NCGA committees by May 1, 2020.
Amends GS 110-91(8) (mandatory standards for staff in child care facilities) by increasing the requirements for lead teachers in and operators of child care centers. Lead teachers must obtain at minimum a North Carolina Infant-Toddler Certificate or Preschool Certificate or its equivalent, replacing the previous minimum of an Early Childhood Credential, which teachers must also have; provides a timeline for when these requirements must be met depending on the teacher's hiring date. Changes requirements for operators from a minimum of a high school diploma to a new minimum of an Early Childhood Credential before receiving a license and mandates the attainment of an Infant-Toddler or Preschool Certificate within 18 months of receiving a license, effective January 1, 2020. Provides that operators of a family child care home licensed prior to January 1, 2020, have until July 1, 2021, to obtain the necessary certificate.
Requires the Division of Child Development and Early Education (Division) to define the knowledge requirements for early childhood educators by establishing expected competencies for lead teachers. Requires that the competencies be based on findings from the specified report and competencies. Requires competencies to be graduated and tied to the certificates and degrees offered within North Carolina's community colleges and colleges and universities, specifically the specified certificates and degrees. Requires the Division to collaborate with the North Carolina Community College System Office to develop or revise a standardized process for early childhood educators to demonstrate their ability to meet the competencies found in all courses included in either the Infant-Toddler or Preschool Certificate. Requires that the process be available to support early childhood educators who choose not to attend or return to college to earn the required certificate or degrees for lead teachers.
Directs the Division, on or after July 1, 2020, to develop and implement a program to encourage higher levels of teacher education by raising salaries and education requirements, and tying salaries to the type of degree attained. Directs the Division to submit a progress report by March 1, 2020, to the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Health and Human Services.
Directs the Division to conduct a feasibility and cost study for development of a pilot program modeled after the North Carolina prekindergarten (NC Pre-K) program for classrooms for children birth through 3 years of age. Requires the model to focus on, at a minimum, several criteria, such as teachers with degrees; use of curriculum assessments; improved student-teacher ratios; payment rates, training, recruitment, and monitoring; and an ongoing evaluation program to measure educational outcomes.
Directs the Division to submit a report on the study to the 2020 Regular Session of the 2019 General Assembly by April 1, 2020.
Requires the Division to report on the status of the early childhood workforce every three years and requires the report to include information on the educational status and compensation of all lead teachers and other teaching staff enrolled in licensed child care programs in the state. Requires the report to be submitted to the specified NCGA committee by January 1, 2021, and every three years thereafter.
Provides that if House Bill 966 (2019 Appropriations Act) does not become law by July 15, 2019, then the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) must delay until March 1, 2020, the implementation of the Medicaid and NC Health Choice transformation required by SL 2015-245, as amended, and by the 1115 demonstration waiver.
Amends GS 131D-2.15 to remove the requirement of DHHS to ensure that adult care home facilities conduct and complete a resident assessment annually subsequent to within 72 hours after admission. Now requires the facility to use an assessment instrument approved pursuant to rules adopted by the Medical Care Commission rather than approved by the Secretary upon the advice of the Director of the Division of Aging and Adult Services. Now requires the facility to conduct an assessment to develop appropriate and comprehensive service plans and care plans within 30 days of admission (was, to use the resident assessment to develop the plans, with no distinct time frame). Now permits a facility to use a service plan that was completed within 35 days of the resident's admission to the facility and represents the results of an assessment to determine the resident's eligibility for personal care services under the Medicaid State Plan to fulfill the activities of daily living portion of any service plan or care plan required under the statute, as amended, or any rules adopted under Article 1, Adult Care Homes; exempts such a facility from conducting an assessment of the resident's ability to perform activities of daily living within 30 days of resident admission. Makes organizational and clarifying changes to the statute.
Amends GS 90-288.14 by amending the requirements for certification as an assisted living administrator by (1) requiring that an individual not have a substantiated finding of neglect, abuse, misappropriation of property, diversion of drugs, or fraud listed on the Health Care Personnel Registry; (2) requiring the individual to have a high school diploma or its equivalent and successfully completed the equivalent of two years of coursework at an accredited college or university or has a minimum of 60 months of supervisory experience, or has a combination of education and experience (was, successfully completes the equivalent of two years of coursework at an accredited college or university or has a combination of education and experience). Defines supervisory experience.

Removes the fourth covenant, which prohibited the sale or lease of the parcel's natural resources.
Requires any funds from the sale or lease of natural resources from the property described as Parcel 1 to be deposited in an escrow account and used only for payment of property taxes, reforestation of the property, and improvements to the property. Directs the Lumbee Tribal Administration to report to the Department of Administration (Department) the sale or lease amount received and deposited into the escrow account within 30 days of the sale or lease of natural resources.
