Monday Wrap: Odds and ends

Posted June 13

— As budget negotiations continue behind closed doors, the House and the Senate passed a few pieces of legislation off to each other Monday night.

The House gave final approval to a proposal to allow Wake County and three other metro counties to set up their own compensation funds for victims of local sterilization programs who didn't qualify under the state's eugenics compensation fund.

Meanwhile, the Senate passed its annual regulatory reform bill, which includes a provision that would allow people to pitch old computers and other electronics into the trash to be hauled to landfills.

A bill calling for an amendment to the state constitution that would do away with restrictions to carrying concealed weapons was read in on the House floor and promptly referred to the House Rules Committee, where it's likely to remain for the rest of the session.
