After an acrimonious debate, House lawmakers voted not to approve an attempt to hand over Wake County's schools to the county's commissioners.
The Senate has revived language that would allow the Wake County Board of Commissioners to take control of building and maintaining public school buildings.
Broad disagreement among House Republicans has stalled a bill that would allow counties to take over responsibility for building and maintaining schools.
The House Government Committee failed to give a favorable report to a measure that would transfer responsibility for construction and upkeep of schools to local county commissioners. But House lawmakers voted to keep the measure alive Thursday night.
