Your weekly North Carolina political news report.
This Week: The House is in congressional work period. The Senate took a break and returned August 15 to work on appropriations and nominations.
Despite an abbreviated August recess, the Senate has a long legislative to-do list before September 30, when government funding and a number of authorizations – including Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) authorities – expire with the end of the fiscal year.
During the short session, the legislature passed six proposed constitutional amendments. The constitutional amendments will be placed on the ballot this November for the voters to decide. The amendments have been heavily debated by legislators, media, and former Governors. Governor Roy Cooper (D) has long opposed the Republican proposed amendments and has challenged them in court. The courts will now decide if the proposed amendments would shift power from the executive office to the legislature.
The House Ways and Means Committee passed several measures to expand tax-advantaged health savings accounts (HSA).
