RALEIGH, North Carolina — Gov. Pat McCrory has signed the last bill left behind by the General Assembly when it completed most of its work for the year this month.

McCrory's office said the governor signed Monday a 58-page measure that contains dozens of largely minor or technical changes to state law on topics ranging from alcoholic beverages and barber school inspections to a pilot program on raising the dropout age.

The decision means McCrory signed all 17 bills that lawmakers left on his desk, including the $21 billion spending plan for this year.

A veto could have forced the entire House and Senate to return to Raleigh to consider an override. The legislature hasn't performed regular work since Aug. 2 as lawmakers are in a holding pattern without an agreed-to adjournment resolution.
