BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Legislature plans to meet late into the night on Monday to clear pending legislation.

Republican majority leaders say they are hoping to adjourn sometime Tuesday.

House Majority Leader Al Carlson of Fargo and his Republican Senate counterpart, Rich Wardner of Dickinson, set four floor sessions on Monday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Lawmakers have about two dozen bills remaining, including a number that are still embroiled in conference committee negotiations about their final wording.

Still ahead are big spending bills, including the Office of Management and Budget, the Public Employees Retirement System, higher education and K-12 education.

Monday is the 76th day of the 2015 Legislature. The North Dakota Constitution limits the Legislature to 80 days of meetings every two years.
