RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The General Assembly has finally signed off on keeping Gov. Pat McCrory’s choice for North Carolina state controller on the job for the next six years.

The Senate gave Wednesday unanimous support to Linda Combs, whom McCrory originally appointed in 2014 to fill out David McCoy’s seven-year term. McCrory nominated her for a full term last year. The House confirmed her last May but the Senate didn’t get to it until now. Combs remained on the job in the meantime.

The Senate also voted to confirm former McCrory Revenue Secretary Lyons Gray to the Utilities Commission and other appointments to the Industrial Commission and the Board of Agriculture. They’ll still need House confirmation.

House committees meeting Wednesday recommended other nominees to the Industrial Commission and as Special Superior Court judges.
