(RALEIGH) -- The General Assembly worked quickly to restore omissions to North Carolina's new redistricting laws that were blamed on a computer code error. House Speaker Tom Tillis said Monday's session was little more than a formality.

"It's minor enough where even the Department of Justice who could have requested an extension did think it was necessary. It has to do with the actual details of the session law that basically provide all of the coordinates for the maps that were accurately represented," said Tillis.

Both the House and Senate voted along party lines to add the census block data that was left out of the laws. Lawmakers then quickly moved to a vote to adjourn and return on Sunday following Thanksgiving Day.

During this late Nov. session lawmakers could consider a number of other issue. Republican leadership could address some outstanding vetoes. They could also bring up a bill that would expand gambling at the Cherokee Casino.
