Senate committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.
Deletes the proposed changes to GS 1C-1852(b).
Amends GS 1C-1853 to prohibit a court from recognizing a foreign country judgment if it was obtained by a foreign government entity to compensate for the expenditure of public funds for government programs (was, if the judgement was for taxes, fines, or other penalty obtained by a foreign government entity to compensate for the expenditure of public funds for government programs).
Instead of declaring specified proceedings in a foreign court to be fundamentally unfair and its judgement repugnant to the state's public policy, requires a court to make those findings.
