NCHBA Legislative Update

   The movement of legislation has hit overdrive this week as more legislation is passing from chamber to chamber.  The increased paced is based on two factors.  First, members are running out of time to have their bills moved before the crossover deadline.  Secondly, members of both the House and Senate will be taking the week after Easter off for spring break.
   Perhaps the biggest news for NCHBA this week was the passage of HB 201.  House Bill 201 Zoning Changes/Citizen Input will now move to the Senate.  As stated in previous weeks, this legislation would remove the 75% vote requirement, when a protest petition is filed by adjacent property owners, in favor of a simple majority of the voting board, in cases of rezoning.  The bill passed the House on second reading 81-33 and 88-29 on third reading.  The bill will now move to the Senate where similar legislation has been filed by Senators Lee, Wells, and Smith.  NCHBA would like to thank Representative(s) Stam, Jackson, Goodman, and Fraley for carrying this legislation through the House of Representatives.  NCHBA would also like to thank the North Carolina Retail Merchants Association, Apartment Association of North Carolina and NAIOP for their assistance in passing this important legislation. 
   Next week, the House Regulatory Reform Committee chairman has agreed to hear HB 255 Building Code Regulatory Reform.  Representative Mark Brody will handle the legislation in committee and on the floor with the help of Representative(s) Riddell, Cotham, and Watford.  The legislation will help clarify past legislation, HB 120 Building Codes/Local Consistency from the 2013 session, which defined required residential inspections; eliminates plan review for single-family residential construction; clarifies the definition of official misconduct for code officials; and requires that the NC Department of Insurance to post any formal interpretations within 3 business days.  Additionally, the bill specifies that inspections be performed in a full and timely manner and inspection reports must include all items failing to meet the code requirements.
   All signs point to a busy week ahead; members of both chambers would like to move legislation before they take their spring break.  

Bills on the Move
HB  201 Zoning Changes/Citizen Input - Passed House
HB 255/SB 324 Building Code Regulatory Reform - Will be heard in House Regulatory Reform Committee on 3/31/2015
