RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina House Republican leaders have had a better time moving along their proposed two-year state budget a day after some GOP colleagues almost derailed it with complaints about tax credits and incentives.

The House Appropriations Committee met for several hours Tuesday and had voted on several dozen amendments. The panel was expected to return Tuesday evening for potentially 30 more amendments.

The bill is still scheduled to go to the House floor Wednesday for the first of two required floor votes.

Senate Republicans want to pass their own version of the budget by mid-June. The two chambers then will work on a final plan for Gov. Pat McCrory to consider.

The taxes and fees contained in the budget barely passed the House Finance Committee on Monday night.
