RALEIGH, (AP) — The North Carolina General Assembly is making quick work again of a mini-work session.

 
The House and Senate reconvened at midday Monday but adjourned within minutes and took no recorded votes. The two chambers are expected to hold perfunctory meetings Wednesday until the May 16 budget-adjustment session, which should last several weeks.
 
Republican legislators set aside a few dates this year like Monday to reconvene if redistricting changes were required.
 
House Speaker Thom Tillis was absent Monday and encouraged others not to accept expense checks unless they were going to Raleigh for other legislative activity.
 
About 75 protesters delivered petitions to the offices of Tillis and Senate leader Phil Berger before Monday's session urging them not to override Gov. Beverly Perdue's veto of a bill requiring photo identification to vote.
