House amendments make the following changes to the 5th edition.

Amendment #2

Deletes Part IV of the act, concerning the Umstead exemption in GS 66-58(b) for the sale of merchandise or services by governmental units, to allow for the lease of parking space, replacing it with provisions that direct the Department of Administration to study and report on recommended legislative changes by which the Umstead Act can be modified to balance limiting governmental participation in business and the State's interest in properly stewarding assets of the State that are unneeded and underused.
