Apodaca: "I'm sick of the House"

Sen. Tom Apodaca scheduled Saturday votes on bills, though the House hasn't committed to staying the weekend. "We're here to work," Apodaca said. "I don't know what they want to do. I'm sick of the House."

The long session is winding down, though the legislature still has some big bills to pass. Apodcaca seemed eager for it to be over.

The Saturday session isn't certain, Apodaca said, though senators were told to be prepared to stay the weekend. "We'll see what the boss wants to do," he said.

Senate leader Phil Berger said the developing Saturday calendar was a demonstration of the Senate's "willingness and intent to stay here until it's done."

Berger canceled a weekend flight to California where he was scheduled to attend a conference early next week.

Update: Thom Tillis spokesman Jordan Shaw says the House doesn't plan to work this weekend, though that could change.
