RALEIGH, NC (WECT) -

The Committee on Rules and Operations of the Senate is meeting in Raleigh Thursday night, but is not scheduled to take up the proposal to extend the state's Film Tax Incentive Credit or the Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit.

Both of those proposals are tucked inside Senate Bill 763, which passed the state House on August 1, and was immediately sent to the same Senate Committee that is meeting Thursday night. However, on the agenda released for Thursday's meeting, S763 is not included in the list of bills to be considered.

A bill that is on the agenda for the Committee meeting is HJR 1276, an adjournment resolution governing what issues can be addressed when the Senate reconvenes either tomorrow or in November after the General Election.

"Bills relating to technical and other changes to revenue laws" is one of the nine issues listed that "can be discussed" when lawmakers gavel in the session on Thursday.

The bill containing the film incentive and historic rehabilitation proposals does have "An act to make technical and clarifying changes to various revenue laws" in its title.

Rep. Ted Davis (R-New Hanover), who proposed the one-year film incentives extension in the House, says he is not sure what might happen when the General Assembly goes back to work on Thursday.

None of the bills on the Committee agenda relates to cleaning up coal ash ponds at Duke Energy plants across North Carolina. However, "Bills related to coal ash management" is another of the nine issues that can be discussed in the Senate session on Thursday, according to HJR 1276.
