(RALEIGH) -- When state lawmakers return to Raleigh on November 7, don’t expect them to take up anything substantive. House Speaker Thom Tillis said members don’t even need to be in town for the special session.

"There will clearly not be any veto overrides or anything," said Tillis.  "I want to assure them that this is just purely an administrative meeting to satisfy our constitutional requirements on adjournment. We'll be notifying the members that it will be a skeleton session and what we'll try to do is get the adjournment resolution that we will need to set up the next meeting out to them so they can decide whether or not they even need to come."

Tillis added that there will be another session scheduled before January.  Lawmakers are expected to take up a bill that put the state’s public campaign finance programs in compliance with a recent Supreme Court ruling.
