The North Carolina General Assembly on Thursday morning passed a bill that will keep the government running through Sept. 18 as the House and Senate continue to work on a budget that was supposed to be enacted June 30.

The bill now goes to Gov. Pat McCrory for his signature. He is expected to sign the bill into law.

The budget extension is the second since the two chambers have been debating how to divide the $21.74 billion agreed upon as the amount for the budget. Lawmakers originally extended the deadline to Aug. 31.

Bladen County House members William Brisson and Ken Waddell, and Sen. Bill Rabon voted in favor of the extension.
