Negotiations between Cooper and GOP lawmakers on a compromise have gone nowhere since June 28, when Cooper vetoed the two-year budget bill drawn up by Republicans. The focus of negotiations has been on whether the state should expand Medicaid to hundreds of thousands more low-income adults, which Cooper and his allies want.
