The Senate also tentatively approved legislation shifting control of Charlotte-Douglas International Airport to a regional authority from the city.

Meanwhile, the House sent an immigration reform effort to a study committee after a lengthy debate over regulations for business to verify the immigration status of their employees and approved a bill capping the number of jetties allowed in coastal inlets while easing restrictions to allow those jetties to be built.

The House action occurred while Speaker Thom Tillis was in Washington, D.C., as part of his U.S. Senate campaign, a fact that drew ire from Democrats and even some Republican senators.

    Tillis had to worship at the Koch brothers altar.

    Tillis is more interested in politics than doing the job he was elected for. His Senate run is dead and he refuses to see the results of the polls.

    Tillis leaving town before his job is done - nice.
