Bill summary

House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 3rd edition.

Eliminates proposed GS 143-254.7, authorizing the Wildlife Resources Commission (WRC) to negotiate fees for all design contracts and supervise the letting of all construction and design contracts, and develop procedures governing the architecture and engineering duties of the Department of Administration and the Director or Office of State Construction with respect to property developments at WRC boating access areas, public fishing areas, and game lands which require the estimated expenditure from sources other than tax revenues of $750,000 or less. 

Eliminates the proposed changes to GS 143-341, exempting WRC vehicles used primarily for law enforcement purposes from those required to be included on the Department of Administration's schedule for all State agencies to transfer ownership, custody or control of all passenger motor vehicles of that agency to the Department. 

Amends GS 113-273(g), changing the fee structure of controlled hunting preserve operator licenses. Now sets the fee for a controlled hunting preserve operator license for rabbits at $25 and for domestically raised birds, foxes, and coyotes at $100 (was a flat fee of $100). 

Makes conforming organizational changes, renumbering the act's sections.
