Bill summary

House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.

Makes technical and clarifying changes to the proposed changes to GS 115D-12(c), concerning filling vacancies that have occurred on the Stanly Community College board of trustees.

Amends GS 115D-12 to modify the method of appointment of the board of trustees of Cleveland Community College, providing that four trustees elected under Group One by the board of education of the public school administrative unit are now elected under Group Two by the county board of commissioners. Renames Group Two to Group One, now providing for eight trustees to be elected by the county board of commissioners. Provides that the four trustees appointed under current Group Three, now renamed Group Two, by the Governor must now be appointed by the General Assembly. The Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate must each recommend two individuals for appointment. The Speaker of the House will make recommendations for terms expiring in 2017 and 2019, with the President Pro Tempore recommending individuals for terms expiring in 2018 and 2020. Additionally, renames existing Group Four as Group Three. Makes conforming changes. Makes identical changes to subsection (c), concerning filling vacancies that have occurred, as those made to the statute for trustees of Stanly Community College. Adds language requiring vacancies in Group Two to be filled pursuant to GS 120-122 (Vacancies in legislative appointments) (previously, all vacancies were to be filled by the agency or agencies authorized to select the trustees of that group). Makes clarifying changes. 

Provides that the current members of the Cleveland Community College board of trustees will serve the remainder of their terms. As terms expire or a vacancy occurs, trustee members will be appointed in accordance with GS 115D-12, as amended by this act.  If a vacancy occurs in a Group Two seat that was appointed by the Governor, that seat will be filled by joint recommendation of the Speaker of the House and President Pro Tempore of the Senate. Once that term expires, the new trustee will be appointed in accordance with GS 115D-12, as amended by this act.

These provisions apply only to Cleveland Community College.
