RE: 2019-2020 Proposed Rule Changes
Date: December 12, 2019
Time: 8:30 a.m.
Location: 3101 Industrial Dr., Suite 206, Raleigh, NC 27619
Reason for Proposed Action: The Legislature has passed Senate Bill 88 prompting the Board to make a new rule, proposed as 21 NCAC 18B .0408 to address electricians in schools. The Legislature has passed House Bill 770 prompting the Board to make a new rule, proposed as 21 NCAC 18B .0212 to address the required recognition by Boards of apprenticeships and training experiences. Furthermore, the Board proposed the repeal of 21 NCAC 18B .0901 to address the change in requirements for denial of a license to consist of a number of factors rather than only those listed in the current rule. Rules 21 NCAC 18B .0303 and 21 NCAC 18B .0404 are proposed to be amended to keep up with the cost of living by increasing license fees as well as increasing the project value limits.

Procedure for Subjecting a Proposed Rule to Legislative Review: If an objection is not resolved prior to the adoption of the rule, a person may also submit written objections to the Rules Review Commission after the adoption of the Rule. If the Rules Review Commission receives written and signed objections after the adoption of the Rule in accordance with G.S. 150B-21.3(b2) from 10 or more persons clearly requesting review by the legislature and the Rules Review Commission approves the rule, the rule will become effective as provided in G.S. 150B-21.3(b1). The Commission will receive written objections until 5:00 p.m. on the day following the day the Commission approves the rule. The Commission will receive those objections by mail, delivery service, hand delivery, or facsimile transmission.
