North Carolina House to take final vote on budget (WTVD)

The North Carolina General Assembly sounds prepared to leave town for the year by this weekend.

The House and Senate planned to keep working Friday and resolve outstanding differences they have in their annual work session that began in late April. Work has been happening on compromises for competing regulatory and environmental changes, as well as on high school math curriculum.

Still uncertain is whether legislators will make changes to the law approved in March that limited LGBT non-discrimination rules and directed which restroom transgender people can use.

The House also was expected Friday to vote one more time on a final budget agreement before sending it to Gov. Pat McCrory's desk.

The Senate may try to leave Friday, but House Speaker Tim Moore suggested a Saturday adjournment is possible.
