Bill summary

House amendments to the 2nd edition make the following changes. 

Section 4

Amendment #1 further amends GS 143-214.7 regarding stormwater runoff rules and programs as follows. Adds to the parameters that must be satisfied in order for the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to transfer a permit without the consent of the owner or of the successor-owner of the property on which the permitted activity is occurring or will occur. Requires that, if the permit holder is a person or entity who has sold the property on which the permitted activity is occurring or will occur, or if the permit holder is the declarant of a condominium or a planned community and the successor-owner is a unit owners' association, then the permit holder is responsible for satisfying the requirements of new subdivision (1d) (which requires inclusion of a written schedule of actions and/or a permit modification application with the transfer permit application if the activity on the property does not conform to the approved plans or permit conditions), and for bringing the property into substantial compliance with the approved plans and permit conditions before the permit is transferred. 

Section 12.5

Amendment #2 amends GS 121-4 to allow the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources to recognize gifts received by naming exhibits, features, or programs administered by the Department.
