NC House, Senate Hold No-Vote Sessions Monday

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- The North Carolina House and Senate are taking different approaches to work this week as they try to finalize a state budget bill and work out differences between competing bills before they can adjourn for the year.

Both chambers held short daily sessions Monday that were sparsely attended and had no recorded votes. The House will hold similar sessions the rest of the week. Speaker Thom Tillis told House colleagues to stay at home unless they are negotiating with the Senate over the budget or other pending legislation.

The full Senate plans a conventional floor session Tuesday to consider at least one bill. Senators must decide whether to accept the House version of coal ash pond cleanup legislation or send it to a Senate-House committee to fashion a compromise.
