Bill summary

Requires concurrence from the Council of State or a majority vote of the Beaufort County Board of County Commissioners for the application of powers to Beaufort County, by a majority vote of the Craven County Board of Commissioners for the application of powers to Craven County, or by a majority vote of the Onslow County Board of Commissioners for the application of powers to Onslow County, in order for the Governor to exercise his powers under GS 166A-19.30(c), which sets out specified additional powers of the Governor during a gubernatorially or legislatively declared state of emergency when the Governor has determined that local control of the emergency is insufficient to assure adequate protection for lives and property. Defines concurrence of Council of State to mean consensus, within 48 hours of contact, of a majority of the Council of State prior to the Governor exercising a power or authority requiring a concurrence of the Council of State. Applies only to Beaufort, Craven, and Onslow counties. Applies to the exercise of power under a state of emergency declared by the Governor or North Carolina General Assembly existing on or after the date that the act becomes law. Sets any power exercised under a state of emergency by the Governor existing on that date and applicable to Beaufort, Craven, and Onslow counties to expire two calendar days after this act becomes law, unless a concurrence of the Council of State is sought and received in accordance with this act or approved by a majority vote of the members of the Beaufort County Board of Commissioners, a majority vote of the members of the Craven County Board of Commissioners, or a majority vote of the members of the Onslow County Board of Commissioners.
