Times-News reporter Melissa Davlin reports that the House and Senate chambers will return to normal visiting hours today, after security video of an armed man in the House chamber prompted restrictions earlier. “I think it’s just time,” House Speaker Scott Bedke told Davlin. After the incident, in which the man rifled through House members’ desks and trash bins and photographed documents with his phone during a tour, visitors were barred from the chambers after 6 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends.
