RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - There’s some small movement in the state Senate over two key policy differences with the House, a development that could help the North Carolina General Assembly wrap up this year’s work session.

Senate Rules Committee Chairman Tom Apodaca of Hendersonville on Tuesday shifted House bills on economic recruitment incentives and overhauling Medicaid from committees where they seemingly were sent to die to new committees.

Apodaca downplayed his moves later but says the bills could be considered this week or next. He says there are items that need to be taken care of as the session winds down.

Another big sticking point remains the state budget, which was supposed to be finalized by July 1. Lawmakers gave themselves until Aug. 14 to negotiate a deal but more time may be needed.
