Bill summary

Senate amendment makes the following changes to the 4th edition.

Section 14

Revises the proposed changes to GS 143-341 to no longer exclude from the Department of Administration's operation of the State's central motor fleet pursuant to GS 143-341, motor vehicles under the ownership, custody, or control of the Division of Emergency Management of the Department of Public Safety (DPS).

Section 20

Revises new GS 126-5(c17), which excludes wardens of adult correctional facilities from the State Human Resources Act, GS Chapter 126, with several exceptions specified. Makes technical and clarifying changes to the GS Chapter 126 exceptions identified. Eliminates GS 126-34.02(b)(1) and (b)(2) as an exception (relating to discrimination, harassment, and retaliation contested cases), and instead adds GS 126-34.1(a)(2) to the exceptions listed (GS 126-34.1 has been repealed; appears to intend another GS Chapter 126 statute). No longer includes provisions describing these employees as public servants; requiring filing of Statements of Economic Interest; and providing protections under GS 125-5(e) if hired before that subsection's repeal with minimum cumulative service to qualify under the provision. Changes the effective date of these proposed changes to July 1, 2022 (was, effective on the date of the act becomes law), applicable to persons hired on or after July 1, 2022.
