RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The proposed North Carolina budget would change the way two environmental commissions operate.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported the measure would end the terms of nearly all the members on both panels, allowing Gov. Pat McCrory and legislative leaders to name replacements.

The bill also would reduce the size of the commissions.

The terms of all 16 of the 19-member Environmental Management Commission would expire July 31.

That commission sets the limits for air and water pollutants and also makes rules for protecting groundwater, managing storm water and guiding development in environmentally sensitive areas.

The terms of all but four members of the Coastal Resources Commission also would expire July 31. The panel oversees activities in coastal counties including construction, shoreline stabilization and dredging.

MIAMI (AP) — A new tropical depression has formed in the eastern Atlantic and is expected to soon become a tropical storm.

The depression's maximum sustained winds early Wednesday are near 35 mph. The National Hurricane Center in Miami says it's forecast to reach tropical storm strength later in the day or Wednesday night.

The depression is centered about 310 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands, off the coast of west Africa, and is moving west-northwest near 20 mph.
