NC lawmakers returns to get down to work

     RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The North Carolina General Assembly is back to work, and this time legislators will be in Raleigh for a while.
 
     The House and Senate reconvened at midday Wednesday three weeks after they met to elect leaders. Now they'll work several days a week until June.
 
     Lawmakers were expected to do little formal work Wednesday except to file dozens of bills.
 
     Among those filed early in the day are measures that would prevent the state from expanding Medicaid through the Affordable Care Act, provide compensation to survivors of the state's former eugenics program and change the constitution with a right-to-work amendment.
 
     Bills to overhaul the state's unemployment insurance system have been filed. A House committee plans to debate its bill Thursday. A business coalition held a news conference supporting the bill.
