RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina legislators have overridden two vetoes issued by Gov. Bev Perdue, meaning some judges will have more power and new rules will govern Medicaid providers.

The state House voted Monday to override the Democrats’ vetoes.

One bill that becomes law gives administrative law judges more authority to resolve disagreements between government departments and citizens. The judges hear appeals on things like denials of Medical coverage or environmental permits.

The House also voted to override a Perdue veto on legislation adding rules on Medicaid providers.

Republicans who took control of the General Assembly this year got support from a handful of House Democrats on both votes.
