RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Gov. Pat McCrory made an unusual appearance before legislators on their home turf as they try to adjourn in the coming days.

McCrory spoke Wednesday at a private caucus meeting of House and Senate Republicans in the Legislative Office Building. The governor left after 50 minutes, told reporters he had “a very positive dialogue” but didn’t respond to additional questions.

McCrory’s visit comes as lawmakers this week vote on a budget agreement and consider addressing further cleanup of coal ash. Fellow Republicans are also weighing changes to the new law limiting anti-discrimination rules and which restrooms transgender people can use. He wants one particular change to House Bill 2.

Republicans don’t divulge the content of caucus meetings. House Speaker Tim Moore said a number of issues were discussed Wednesday.
