N Carolina budget gets final OK quickly signed by Cooper

RALEIGH, N.C (AP) — The North Carolina General Assembly has postponed legislative government oversight committee meetings and cancelled student tours for at least three weeks as precautionary measures against coronavirus.

Top staff for legislative leaders released directives on Thursday that should lessen foot traffic dramatically at the Legislative Building complex through the end of March.

Their memo also encourages allowing staff to work from home during that time period. Additional guidance is expected later to determine whether the new restrictions should remain in place beyond April 1. Senate leader Phil Berger says the April 28 start of the annual General Assembly session remains unchanged.
