Bill summary

Senate amendments make the following changes to the 4th edition.

Amendment #2 amends Section 4.7(b) of SL 2020-3 to also extend for five months the validity of inspection mechanic licenses that expire on or after March 1, 2020, and before the date 30 days after the date the Governor rescinds Executive Order No. 116 or issues another executive order lifting restrictions on Division of Motor Vehicles functions.

Amendment #4 amends the use of the $23 million allocated to OSBM in (114e) by amending the way those funds are to be allocated. Instead of an equal allocation, now requires that one-half of the funds be allocated to NCHCGA, one-quarter be allocated to NCSLA, and one-quarter be allocated to NCALA. Makes additional clarifying changes and requires that NCSLA and NCALA collaborate in assuring equitable distribution of materials to adult care homes and family care homes.

Amendment #6 deletes Section 37C of the act, concerning the term affiliate for determining impact of prior violations and compliance history on new and renewed adult care home licenses.

Amendment #10 amends Section 2.6 of the act by adding that if the Governor declares a State Type I Individual Assistance Disaster Declaration for Bertie County and Chowan, Halifax, Hertford, Martin, Northampton, and Washington counties, then $750,000 is reallocated and appropriated from the balance of the State Emergency Response and Disaster Relief Fund to provide assistance related to the EF-3 tornado in Bertie County due to Hurricane Isaias.  

Amendment #11 decreases the allocation to YMCA of the Triangle Area, Inc., for the North Carolina Alliance of YMCAs, from $19,900,000, to $19,850,000. Adds an allocation of $50,000 to the Administrative Office of the Courts for a grant to Robeson County for eligible costs incurred due to the COVID-19 pandemic by an existing innovative court pilot project.

Amendment #12 makes the following changes.

Corrects the name of the North Carolina Symphony Society, Incorporated. 

No longer disqualifies businesses that have received other forms of federal or State coronavirus related aid from receiving grants from CAGC. Prohibits a grant recipient from using grant funds to pay for expenses that have been or will be covered under another coronavirus relief program.

Instead of allowing the cancellation of an agreement when a GREAT grant recipient fails to perform, allows the Office to cancel an agreement if the grant recipient reduces or proposes to reduce the scope of the project to the extent that the reduction would result in a lower score and reduced ranking for funding or the amount of state matching funds the project would receive. Makes conforming changes to GS 143B-1373(l).
