RALEIGH — North Carolina General Assembly Republicans completed the override Tuesday of Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper’s veto of their state budget legislation for the second year in a row. The House secured the override with a nearly party-line 73-44 vote after floor debate. The Senate voted to override last week, the day after Cooper issued his veto. Republican margins in both chambers are wide enough for any override if they remain united. This is the 11th override of Cooper’s 14 vetoes since he took office in early 2017. By Gary D. Robertson.

DALLAS — The Southern Baptist Convention opened its annual national meeting Tuesday in an anxious mood as the denomination’s all-male leadership grapples with the fallout of multiple sexual misconduct cases. One order of business is a draft resolution co-signed by dozens of SBC leaders calling on the largest Protestant denomination in the U.S. to repudiate any rhetoric or behavior that dishonors women. The resolution denounces those who commit or cover up such actions, and urges congregations and ministers to abide by all laws mandating the reporting of sexual abuse and assault.
