RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The North Carolina Senate is joining the House on spring break.

Senate leader Phil Berger confirmed Wednesday his chamber wouldn’t take recorded votes next week in part to give senators time off after the Easter weekend. Berger says the decision also is based on the House’s announcement last month it wouldn’t meet. Many public school systems are off next week as well.

Berger says some fellow Republican senators will be around the Legislative Building next week and participate in caucus meetings to discuss pending legislation.

The House and Senate are expected to return to their normal work schedule on the week of April 13.
