RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Gov. Pat McCrory says he and North Carolina legislative leaders are going through a tough process working on a tax overhaul and isn't going to spend a long time helping facilitate a deal.

The governor said after a bill signing ceremony Wednesday he's feeling there will be a positive outcome to negotiations between House and Senate Republicans. The two chambers have passed competing tax plans.

McCrory says he hopes to see consensus reached in the next week but doesn't want the process to drag out and says he'll move on to other important policy issues otherwise. The legislature doesn't have a hard deadline but Republicans want to end the legislative session in July.

The governor says he's looked at many tax scenarios but hasn't made his own offer to legislators.
