RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina lawmakers may still meet in a special session to discuss Hurricane Matthew recovery and relief.
A news release Friday from Gov. Pat McCrory’s office said he will announce in the near future an outline for “any required special session” to address disaster relief funding. The release says such a legislative meeting also would adjust the school calendar law for schools that closed for several days after the storm.
McCrory’s office says he made the comments while visiting Fayetteville. The Robesonian reported the governor made similar comments Thursday during a tour of Lumberton.
Two weeks ago, McCrory and Republican legislative leaders agreed there was no need to reconvene immediately, despite calls by Democrats to do so. The legislature begins its next two-year session in January
