Raleigh, N.C. — After several days of little action in the General Assembly, lawmakers finally voted Tuesday on several pieces of legislation.
Mind you, the pending veto override vote in the House languished on the floor calendar for a fourth day Tuesday. Still, the so-called "biscuit bill," which would allow convenience stores that serve food to install seating, cleared the House and is headed back to the Senate for a final vote. The House also approved a measure that would prohibit cities and town from dictating the appearance of new single-family homes, and that measure now heads to Gov. Pat McCrory.
House committees also passed a bill that would allow people in the U.S. illegally to obtain limited driving privileges and the latest Farm Act, which would allow an expansion of deer farming in North Carolina.
