Adds the following new content.
Amends GS 143B-437.56A by adding that the annual grant approved for disbursement under the the Job Development Investment Grant Program payable to a business meeting all of the specified requirements is increased by 20%. Specifies that the amount of increase allowed is not included for calculating the award limitations in the specified statutes. Sets out the following requirements to be met for the increase: (1) the business was awarded the grant for locating a company headquarters; (2) the business announces during the base period the relocation from another state to a development tier one or two area and manufacturing operation of the business or a business that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with the business; (3) the relocation will result in the business creating a number of positions to be filled by new full-time employees in the state (a) equal to or grater than the applicable minimum number of jobs set in the specified statute and (b) with withholdings equal to or greater than the amount of the bonus allowed under this subsection; and (4) the number of positions required are filled for the year in which the annual grant is increased.
Amends GS 143B-437.56, which requires that the amount of a grant be a percentage of the withholdings of eligible positions for a period of years. Removes the requirement that a project located in more than one area designation use the location with the highest area designation to determine the maximum percentage to be used in determining the amount of the grant awarded.
Amends Section 7 of House Bill 252 if it becomes law, to make the changes to GS 7A-142 and GS 163-9 concerning changes to filling a vacancy in the office of district judge, by making the changes applicable to vacancies occurring on or after the date the act becomes law. Removes the provision specifying that for vacancies occurring after the close of the filing period on March 4, 2022, and before September 9, 2022, the provisions of amended GS 7A-142(d)(2) apply.
Makes organizational changes and amends the act's long title.
