RALEIGH -- Things are winding down at the Legislative Building in Raleigh, but there could be a last minute frenzy of activity to get some big legislation done before lawmakers head home.

The top priority for lawmakers is reaching a deal and voting on a tax plan and two-year state budget.

The spending plan has to be in place before legislators can head home for the year.

On the Senate side, lawmakers will receive the proposal just approved by the state House to amend North Carolina's abortion laws.

The proposals were added to a Senate bill, so the body just needs one concurrence vote on the bill. If it agrees to it, the proposals then go to the governor for consideration.

The state House is also looking to take up a much talked about bill this week. The proposal to give some illegal immigrants the opportunity to get a driver's license is on the calendar for Monday night.

The proposal could put some stricter regulations on undocumented immigrants in the state.

Several immigrant groups have come out against the proposal.
