SECTION 2. This act is effective when it becomes law and applies to the 2016 primary cycle for U.S. House of Representatives election contests unless the United States Supreme Court reverses or stays the decision of the United States District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina holding unconstitutional G.S. 163‑201(a) as it existed prior to the enactment of this act (or the decision is otherwise enjoined, made inoperable, or ineffective), and in any such case Section 2 of S.L. 2015‑258 is again effective.
