NC adjournment approved, 2-year session ends

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina’s legislature has gone home for good after wrapping up their two-year session.

The Senate completed work Wednesday evening by approving a compromise with the House on cleaning up coal ash ponds and a bill on unemployment insurance records and adjourned. The House finished Wednesday afternoon. That means lawmakers won’t come back unless there’s a veto or special session until the next edition of the General Assembly in January.

This year’s work period began May 14 and ended seven weeks later than predictions by legislative leaders as negotiations on the budget, coal ash and economic incentives lingered.

House Speaker Thom Tillis suggested it’s possible Gov. Pat McCrory could call lawmakers back to consider other economic incentives the governor wants approved. Sen. Tom Apodaca says he prefers not to return.
