What could be better that one adjournment resolution? Try three!

You read that right. The Senate actually passed three unique adjournment resolutions Thursday evening that would allow:

  • lawmakers to wrap-up this session and head home for the year (House Joint Resolution 1276)
  • lawmakers to return November 17th to consider Medicaid reform  (House Joint Resolution 182)
  • lawmakers to head home now, but return November 17th to consider Medicaid funding, bills relating to litigation, as well as any other  legislation where conferees have been appointed by both houses by the end of today (August 15th) (House Joint Resolution 901)

The NC House convenes at 10:00am and will presumably pick one of those options. Stay tuned for the answer to the question Rob Schofield asked earlier this morning: Is this finally THE day?

What he writes about at the national level, we see an even more extreme version at work right here in NC.
