House to return Monday, not in November (video)

Try as they might, the NC House was unable to wrap-up the short session on Friday. Legislators in that chamber will return for two days next week, in which they hope to conclude their work for the remainder of the year and adjourn.

House Speaker Thom Tillis announced late Friday that the body does not plan to return in November.

The Senate has been clear that their preference is to return after the election and tackle Medicaid reform and a final plan to clean-up the state’s coal ash ponds.

One of the final hurdles for the House will be House Bill 718, which includes a budget fix to help local districts spare the jobs of teaching assistants this school year.

The House meets again on Monday at 5:00 p.m.

    Would they seriously adjourn without addressing coal ash pollution clean-up? That would be terribly irresponsible.
