North Carolina lawmakers are back in session today following their spring recess.

One question this week is whether the Senate will take up the controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act. 

Bills like this one have sent political tidal waves across the country. Critics say they would allow businesses to discriminate against certain groups, such as gay people.

The governor says he opposes it, and House Speaker Tim Moore says it won't be a priority in his chamber, but Senate Leader Phil Berger has been cautious about it and hasn't been clear on how the proposal may do in his chamber.

Less controversial bills in the Senate this week are geared toward the families of people with disabilities, teenagers in foster care and the appropriate way to dispose of an American flag.
