NC House Leader: Legislators May Return Next Week

RALEIGH, N.C. A key General Assembly leader says North Carolina lawmakers are looking to return to Raleigh next week to take up some pending legislation. But House and Senate Republicans have agreed to nothing so far.

Rep. Paul Stam is the House's second highest-ranking member. He presided Wednesday over a skeleton floor meeting of the chamber to keep this year's work session going in keeping with the state constitution. The House and Senate left town last week without agreeing on a work schedule for the rest of the year.

Stam says all House members should be prepared to return Aug. 14. Senate Republicans would prefer to stay away until mid-November.

The legislature passed a budget bill last week but couldn't agree on coal ash cleanup and Medicaid overhaul plans.
