RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The North Carolina General Assembly is putting the finishing touches on its two-year session.

Legislators on Thursday approved a grab-bag “technical corrections” bill and a measure extending the time farmers can request state aid following Hurricane Florence until Dec. 20.

Cooper signed the Florence measure later Thursday. Five other bills await Cooper’s action in deadlines over 10 days. Cooper has until Sunday night to act on a measure implementing voter photo identification mandated in a constitutional referendum. Legislators could end the session, following any override votes as soon as next week.

The “technical corrections” bill in part would allow Wayne County school leaders to retain control of a low-performing school the State Board of Education voted last week to take from local control.
