NC General Assembly wraps up most of its 2021 work

The North Carolina General Assembly has wrapped up nearly all of its work for the calendar year. The Republican-controlled legislature held floor votes Monday on several measures before leaving Raleigh. Some bills are heading to Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper. One of the bills that Cooper is expected to veto would prohibit the spending of private money to run elections, something that happened in 2020. Lawmakers are scheduled to return in late December, but only for limited purposes such as veto overrides and redistricting changes. This year's work session began in January and is among the longest dating back to the 1960s.
