Lawmakers Have Yet to Agree on Energy Bill

Despite recent efforts to get lawmakers to reconvene in a special legislative session to pass an energy bill, it didn't happen Aug. 13.

House and Senate leaders did say negotiators were scheduled to meet Aug. 13 concerning the bill.

Governor Fletcher has sole power to call special sessions.

He said yesterday he would not summon the lawmakers back on the 13th because negotiations between the House and Senate have yet to produce a final agreement on the bill.

Fletcher said he is optimistic that the legislature will work through their issues so the session can convene soon.
