The future of Gov. Pat McCrory’s latest vetoes is now in the hands of the North Carolina House.

Republican leaders in the House have two veto overrides on their Wednesday agenda. One is on a bill allowing some court officials to avoid performing gay marriage duties based on religious objections. Another is on legislation allowing companies to sue for civil damages someone who deliberately gets hired to steal intellectual property or take video.

The Senate already voted Monday to cancel the marriage bill’s veto, but House leaders have suggested they may delay their vote in what’s expected to be a close outcome.

The “property protection” bill override still must go through the House and Senate. Animal-rights groups fear the bill would discourage undercover animal cruelty probes.
