North Carolina lawmakers return to try to wrap up session

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- The House and Senate returned to Raleigh on Monday to debate and vote on several bills. The House is ready to vote for a $2 billion bond package that cleared the Senate last week and requires a statewide referendum next year for the borrowing to occur.

The two chambers have reached a final compromise on the Republicans' annual bill that makes regulatory changes. They plan final votes on that proposal.

The Senate has votes on immigration and charter schools. The House plans to vote on tax and farm legislation.

Legislative leaders have talked about adjourning by Tuesday or Wednesday.

The best place to follow what's going on in in the General Assembly is the House and Senate "Dashboards." They're basically the real-time electronic scorecard that lawmakers use.
