RALEIGH — The General Assembly is slowing down to avoid any ice and wintry weather crossing North Carolina this week. So is the state Supreme Court.
The House and Senate cancelled Tuesday committee meetings before the bad weather bore down on the state. While the House chamber also decided against holding a floor session Tuesday, the Senate scheduled one in the early afternoon.
The weather also meant a government affairs conference by the North Carolina Chamber scheduled for Tuesday was postponed to a later day. The top General Assembly leaders usually speak at the event.
The Supreme Court also took no chances and postponed by one week oral arguments scheduled for Tuesday. The topics included the constitutionality of taxpayer-funded grants for low-income children to attend private schools.
