AN ACT TO PROVIDE FURTHER REGULATORY RELIEF TO THE CITIZENS OF NORTH CAROLINA.
Amends GS 143-215.107 concerning air quality and classifications to provide that neither the Environmental Management Commission (Commission) nor the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (Department) can issue rules limiting emissions from wood heaters to implement federal regulations or enforce federal regulations against a manufacturer, distributor, or consumer with respect to US EPA regulations concerning wood heater emissions adopted after May 1, 2014. Further prevents the Commission or the Department from enforcing any federal air emissions standard adopted after May 1, 2014, which would jeopardize the health, safety, or economic well-being of a citizen of North Carolina through the regulation of fuel combustion used to provide hot water or heating or comfort heating to a residence or comfort heating to a business.
Amends GS 143-213 to define wood heater.
