RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The North Carolina legislature returns to Raleigh on Tuesday to determine whether it will override Gov. Pat McCrory’s first two vetoes.

Both bills passed the House and Senate by comfortable veto-proof margins in July. While a couple of legislators have suggested they’ll change their minds, GOP leaders in both chambers sound ready to cancel the vetoes of their fellow Republican.

The bills would require government drug testing of some welfare applicants and broaden exceptions for employers obliged to use a federal database to determine whether employees can work in the country.

North Carolina State University professor Andrew Taylor says the vetoes may help portray McCrory as independent from the legislature. The governor says he vetoed the bills in the name of good government, not for political wins and losses.
