An excerpt from the Carolina Journal link:
In other legislative news, the House is poised to pass a bill Monday night that would allow taxpayers to donate a portion of their state income tax refunds to state government. Commonly known as the “tax me more” fund, the measure passed the House Government Committee last week in a 23-11 vote.
On Wednesday, the House will take up House Bill 115, North Carolina Health Benefit Exchange. The measure directs the state to takes its first step in implementing the federal health care reform law, even while Republicans attempt to exempt the state from portions of it.
Indications are that House Bill 129, Level Playing Field/Local Gov’t Competition, will become law without Perdue’s signature. The governor said Friday she would neither veto nor sign the bill, allowing it to became law shortly.
