NC Lawmakers Making New Laws Before Leaving

The North Carolina General Assembly is cleaning up several laws approved this year before leaving town Wednesday, but a measure to let voters decide whether to cap time served by legislative leaders may have to wait.

A House committee agreed Tuesday to a compromise with senators on the tweaks to new laws, including the delay of a new requirement for young drivers to record hours they drive before they get a full provisional license until Jan. 1. The bill also would allow bail bondsmen to access court records online for a fee.

It looks less likely House and Senate Republicans will agree on a constitutional amendment limiting how long the House speaker and Senate leader can serve. The Senate hasn't appointed negotiators.

The Legislature could return to Raleigh in November.
