members before I get into explanations Very short sweet I want to thank Chris Saunders and Cow Evans and Christopher Stock and thinking in my office This has been an 18 month long journey I don't have any bill that has been discussed or voted upon more times and three more committees in this particular bill But the change But I won't tell him thank you very much and I want to do it perfectly because they certainly deserved The changes are the title was changed from format 2019 We added We have completely remove sections one through 14 There's no mention of hemp in this bill There is no mention of shooting sports in this bill that has been removed The only thing that has been added that you have not seen before this section number 15 and this has been a collaboration between myself and would er the town of Clayton The pharmaceutical industry as well as the cue to come up with this language which is always way have totally agreed upon and it basically just clarifies the tedium The transport factor is applied to a permitted discharge regardless of whether the offset credits are derived from a point or non point source project And it directs the huge model New transport Factors for the News River Basin As I said we have all come together to work on this language and everything else in this bill you have seemed on The other thing changes Worries Dates have been updated to reflect that it is 2020 instead of 2019 and I would appreciate your support will be more than happy to answer any point Like dinner Woodard for what purpose Your eyes See if center Jackson deal for question Jackson Did you do you So Jackson expressed disappointment under you shared about the hip sections Would you help us understand what the absence of those sections related to him in this bill mean for our farmers and maybe hip industry General thank you for the question Senator Woodard up I'll do my best to explain it as a lot off your where USDA has come out with some temporary rules and we were trying to modify the him to those rules and they keep changing I know you can't believe that you think in the fields could change but they can't change So we figured the and this was so contentious in the House with in CD a North Line apartment by cultures asked for a two year extension on the pilot program and if they do not get that and we think they will But if they do don't get that the pilot program is still won't stay in place to the end of October of this year But if they do not get the extension the program will follow under USDA Gap and go from there So I think hand former probably better off waiting until we get some rules and they'll have better certainty as we move forward Smith What works to see if the bill sponsor will yield for a question Jackson you Do you Senator Jackson on take seven I believe it changes the name of the Food Processing Innovation Center to the North Carolina Food Innovation Lab Committee and it gives the appointments of members that in the center doesn't changing from a center to a committee Mr President Answer to question No man Nothing has changed other than the lane defended more appropriate for the new name than the only being that comedians already in place Further discussion or debate center till would work Thank you Mr President Speak gratefully Jackson You've done a lot of good work over the years with foreign wheels Helped out farmers greatly appreciate all your work with dedication You sort of the point man here for farmers And I think farming's easy You tried little cover Got tired of me losing money so quick But uh I want to say on behalf of hemp farmer I've got a lot of friends that are in the business They grow it the process manufacturing a bottle of brandy and sell it in their story about one of the biggest in my county And I wont uh for them to be assured that help business is not over and big What we're doing I think is putting things on hold for a while to see what we're going to get from the feds and to make a rational decision about where we want to go But I hope the message that our farm get out of this are there Many of them are very interested in any legislation that deals with him Whether you're lasting good positive legislation for the help people or we're doing nothing but don't hold All we're doing is up negative No Senate rejection You don't want to hurt this business It's a very viable business in North Carolina and uh very illegal broader in North Carolina And some have attached a a bad name to it in some areas because you could make this stuff and you can have the wrong kind of the three big season it you know you get something make your little plus maybe but uh the legal products folks are very good and very pure are expected uh rigorously So I think our message will be that I hope you agree that we're not trying to end him for we're just trying to make some good sense out of what we do next And thank you for all the good work Earlier discussion or debate Peterson What purpose Speak of the bill of president before Thank you Getting there Congratulations Mr Jackson Senator Jackson And you worked on this and others as well Like you have two concerns I'd like to express right now and carry over from the original bill draft 1st 1 let me say this First we realize how important agricultural industries in North Carolina and our national security in our economy And I don't oppose that I support the hot industry the poultry industry beef industry But we learned as a legislature and acted as a legislator I wouldn't here But previous legislators address the issue of these large family forms off some numbers K foes concentrated animal feeding operation We don't like to hear that term used but in the waste management from these farms into lagoons and and then into spray fittest man It was a moratorium as we know put on these uh lagoons and spray Feels not going to detail back in 1997 on again 2007 General Assembly Ah but apartment restriction on development We're expansion of spray fields in section tennis I believe Previously Section 25 it exempts certain soil and water conservation Commission documents specifically related to concerns of neighboring populations To these hot operations there's healthy huge It's been researched and proven and to not be able to have these records made public is powerful to these people in there Attempts of relief Section 27 Previously Section 27 now section 11 Ah this allows a modification construction or expansion of hot waste management systems everything we're trying to uh move away from And I think it's a movement wrong direction It also doesn't require through a general permit rather than individual permit adheres to strict performance standards If there is expansion of these lagoons on the straight field operations it's a step back and I think we could do better research is there We know we can uh not only promote the industry but also protect our environment and our public health and safety So for that reason I am gonna vote no for this But again I want to congratulate you on all the hard work that you put it Thank you for further discussion or debate center would for what purpose To speak on the bills for president I was preparing for today's session I'm back through my file remember that originally my file on this farm bill of 2019 thought came to mind Senator Jackson no good deed goes unpunished So I just want to thank you and your staff for a year and 1/2 of work on this It's been really tough at times and you've had some hard negotiations on a number of points of this bill Thank you for including me and others from our caucus in helping Draft helped draft this bill Certainly not all we wanted But they're still really good policy here for our agriculture on agribusiness communities I too disappointed is center Tillman mentioned that we couldn't get him legislation in here But I want to add my voice of support to our hemp growers and processors in this state And I hope that we will take the time in this interim to continue to work with both our farmers and processors as well as our law enforcement community and others who express concerns about the legislation and that we could move forward Jackson reference briefly the new section 15 of the bill that speak to transport factors in the News River Basin And I just thought I mentioned just a couple of points on that said the markets and I were talking this morning about that This is a very complicated piece of policy that we're working on here And if you could have heard center Marcus and me this morning you have heard to policy geeks really diving into it on oclock this morning for about 20 minutes of really deep policy This is a very tough issue for us to face And we as a state are gonna have to address mitigation factors in all of our river basins in the years of hit We're running out off a lot of the tools that we use traditional cap and trade that we've used in mitigation And this is one of the new technologies new schemes that we will have to address So I would appreciate your support for this on a limited basis on the upper news today And I plant the seed with you all that we're gonna have a lot more conversation around transport factor mitigation in the years ahead It's gonna be very very important in both protecting our waterways but also looking at economic development particularly in our rural communities And I'd ask for your support the bill Like express further discussion or debate Senator Ganis What purpose Iraq Speak a little bit Thank you Mr President Ladies gentleman said it I rise in support of this piece of legislation because although it covers a wide variety of issues it all falls back down to the support of the American farmer And when we get to the point in this country we cannot feed our that I reliance on foreign countries is all we have to feed ourselves It will be a dark day We already have some dark based on some of our companies being bought out by my comment Is foreign Nation specifically Smith And we need to pay particular attention because this is the type of legislation that supports the American farmer and Jack Not like because if we don't stand up and pay attention and we lose that ability to feed ourselves folks is the commissioner of Agriculture says 100 man is a mean and we don't need to be running into that kind of situation Thank you for your support of the American farmer Further discussion or debate period in question for the Senate is the adoption of the conference reports Senate
