Bill summary

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

Changes the act's long and short titles.

Modifies the proposed authority granted to Manteo to make, adopt, and enforce ordinances for the navigable waters within its municipal limits as to certain activities. Now more specifically authorizes ordinances as to restrict the anchoring and mooring of boats and vessels as to location and generally to regulate the anchoring and mooring of vessels within the navigable waters within the municipal limits of the municipality (was, within its navigable waters). Removes from the authorization ordinances which make reasonable rules and regulations for the safe and proper use of the navigable waters within the municipal limits of the municipality for fishermen. Makes technical changes to refer to local ordinances adopted under the authority of the act consistently throughout rather than ordinances adopted by the municipality under the authority of the act, municipal ordinances, and ordinances adopted by the city under the act.

Adds new Section 3 to grant the same authority to Hyde County concerning the navigable waters in Silver Lake that are within its jurisdiction, as that granted to Manteo in Section 1 of the act, as amended. Provides for the enforcement for county ordinances adopted under the act in accordance with GS 153A-123 (concerning enforcement of county ordinances, rather than GS 160A-175 regarding city ordinances as provided in Manteo's authorizations). Applicable only to the described navigable waters in Hyde County known as Silver Lake. Provides for identical conflict of law and enforcement provisions as those accompanying the authorizations for the Town of Manteo in Section 1.
