RALEIGH — Spending and policy adjustments made by Republicans to North Carolina’s state budget next year appears headed to becoming law despite Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper’s veto. The House scheduled an override vote Tuesday on Cooper’s veto of the nearly $24 billion plan for the fiscal year starting July 1. The Senate already completed its part of the override last week, the day after Cooper issued his veto. Republicans in both the House and the Senate have large enough majorities so that they can override any veto if they stay united. By Gary D. Robertson. SENT: 130 words.

DALLAS — The Southern Baptist Convention opens 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.
