It was busy this week in the North Carolina General Assembly with numerous overrides of gubernatorial vetoes, passage of many proposed amendments to the State Constitution and local bills. The Governor vetoed seven substantive bills, five of which were overridden by the legislature. The General Assembly also rejected several of the Governor’s appointments to boards and commissions. Overall, it was a very tumultuous and acrimonious week between the Executive and Legislative branches. [see articles linked below]
The General Assembly plans to adjourn the short session today, but it won't be an adjournment sine die. The adjournment resolution released Thursday evening, House Joint Resolution 1101, calls the legislature back to Raleigh at noon on Tuesday, Nov. 27. In introducing the resolution, House Rules Chairman David Lewis, R-Harnett, did not mention what might be on the agenda in November, but the resolution includes no restrictions on what legislation can be considered.
