RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The North Carolina House has acted on one bill vetoed by Gov. Pat McCrory but put off another vetoed measure addressing government officials who don't want to perform gay marriages due to religious beliefs.
The marriage bill was listed on the House agenda Wednesday for the first time since McCrory vetoed it. House Rules Chairman David Lewis said action would likely be delayed because a couple lawmakers originally voting for the bill were absent. It's unclear when an override vote would occur.
The Senate already voted Monday to cancel the marriage bill veto. McCrory said late Wednesday the House should have taken the marriage vote so that legislators can move on to more pressing issues like job creation.
The House and Senate completed an override Wednesday on business property legislation.
