House & Senate Reach Compromise, Finalize COVID-19 Relief For K-12 & Others

Lawmakers on Saturday morning rolled out a compromise COVID-19 relief package that is split into two bills, with funding in House Bill 1043 and policy changes in Senate Bill 704. Both bills moved quickly through committees and then gained approval in both chambers with almost unanimous bipartisan support before moving on for Governor Roy Cooper’s consideration and signature.
