Bill summary

Conference report makes the following changes to the 5th edition.

Part VI

Modifies new GS 14-208.12B(a), requiring the sheriff to notify a person required to register as a sex offender of the right to petition for a judicial determination of the requirement. Specifies that notification must be served on the person and the district attorney as provided in Rule 4(j) of the NC Rules of Civil Procedure or delivered by any other means that the person consented to in writing. 

Amends Section 11.5(c), requiring the State Bureau of Investigation to provide each district attorney with a list of class members residing in the district attorney’s jurisdiction who are subject to the federal court order in Grabarczyk v. Stein. Now requires an elected District Attorney to decide to handle each case or have the Attorney General handle the case. Provides that if requested by an elected District Attorney, the Attorney General must make preliminary determinations and represent the State in any proceedings created by the Section. Makes further conforming and clarifying changes. 

Makes a technical correction in Section 11.5(d).

Part VII

Amends the proposed changes to GS 166A-19.31(d) requiring publication of a state of emergency declaration issued by a municipality or county to include both conspicuously posting a signed copy of the declaration on the jurisdiction’s website if the jurisdiction has one and submitting a signed copy of the declaration to the Department of Public Safety WebEOC critical incident management system, at minimum. 

Part VIII

Repeals Part V of the act (Radiological Emergency Planning) if HB 635 becomes law.

Makes conforming organizational changes.
