Bill summary

House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 2nd edition.

Section 1

Makes a technical change to the effective date of Section 1(c), which amends GS 87-13.1 regarding relief now required for the Licensing Board for General Contractors if the Board prevails in an injunctive action against violators of Article 1, which governs the licensing of general contractors. Adds that the changes apply to Board actions brought on or after the date the act becomes law.

Section 4

Revises the proposed changes to GS 160D-1104(d), which prohibits charging a fee for reinspection of additional violations of the Code noted by an inspection conducted during a subsequent inspection to verify completion or correction of instances of Code noncompliance if the additional violations are noted on items already approved by the inspections department. Now provides that the inspector noting additional violations in this circumstance may delay (was prohibited from delaying) the issuance of a temporary certificate of occupancy. 

Section 5

Modifies the proposed changes to GS 113A-60 as follows. Now prohibits development regulations and local erosion and sedimentation control plans from requiring a silt fence or other measure to be placed, or a wire-backed reinforced silt fence, which would not substantially and materially retain the sediment generated by the land-disturbing activity within the boundaries of the tract during construction upon and development of the tract, due to the contour and topography of the site (was the natural contour and topography of the site).
