HOUSE: The state House meets at 1 p.m. Members are scheduled to give final legislative approval to a bill making posting "revenge porn" a felony for adults and exempting home builders' inventory from local taxes.

UBER: The House Transportation Committee is scheduled to meet at noon to vet a bill that would regulate ride-sharing services such as Uber. WRAL.com plans to carry this meeting live online. Check the Video Central section on the homepage.

GOVERNOR: Gov. Pat McCrory is scheduled to hold a bill signing ceremony at 2:30 p.m. for the ABLE Act, a measure designed to allow parents to save in tax-advantaged accounts for their developmentally disabled children.
