Bill summary

House committee substitute amends the 1st edition as follows. 

Eliminates the provisions of previous Section 4 of the act, which amended GS 17E-4 to add to the duties of the North Carolina Sheriffs' Education and Training Standards Commission (Commission), preparation of disclosure statements for candidates and potential appointees for the office of sheriff with respect to felony convictions and expunctions, and authorized the Commission to charge a fee to cover the cost of any criminal history check. Makes conforming organizational changes. 

Makes the following changes to new Article 3, GS Chapter 17E. No longer requires individuals filing or intending to file a notice of candidacy for election or an individual prior to appointment to fill a vacancy to the office of sheriff to tender a fee to cover the cost of the background check upon requesting the Commission's preparation of a disclosure statement verifying that the individual has no prior felony convictions or expungements of felony convictions. Makes technical changes to the new Article.
