Bill summary

Senate committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the follow changes. Amends the provisions concerning the effects of withdrawing from the Mountain Island Lake Marine Commission (Commission), providing that if upon the effectuation of the withdrawal: (1) there are either one or zero participating counties remaining, the Commission is dissolved, and all property of the Commission is to be distributed to or divided among the three counties and any other public agency or agencies serving the Mountain Island Lake area; (3) there are at least two participating counties remaining, the Commission will continue with the remaining participating counties. Adds that if Lincoln County is not a participating county, any decision or advisory action by the Commission must not include the portion of the shoreline area in Lincoln County.

Instead of deleting GS 77-77 in its entirety, renames the statute and provides as follows. Allows the Commission to make recommendations to the duly elected representatives of the participating counties or other relevant elected officials applicable to Mountain Island Lake and its shoreline area on matters concerning the use of Mountain Island Lake. Prohibits such recommendations from conflicting with or superseding provisions of general or special acts or of regulations of State agencies promulgated under the authority of general law. Also allows the Commission, instead of passing regulations supplementary to State law and regulations on operating vessels on Mountain Island Lake, to request (after public notice) that the Wildlife Commission pass local regulations on this subject.
