House and Senate members had not (as of Tuesday afternoon) posted an agenda for Wednesday’s special legislative session. But it’s clear work to overhaul North Carolina’s judiciary continues to move forward. On Thursday, members of the newly appointed Joint Select Committee on Judicial Reform and Redistricting will meet for the first time.
Two respected voices that lawmakers should listen to before they decide what changes they will put forth this year appeared last week on NC Policy Watch’s News & Views with Rob Schofield. (Click below to hear each interview in its entirety.)
Alicia Bannon, Senior Counsel for the Brennan Center, weighed in on the merit selection process and the need for greater transparency in North Carolina’s judicial reform efforts.
Thursday’s Joint Select Committee on Judicial Reform and Redistricting will convene at 1:00 p.m. in Room 544 of the Legislative Office Building. Policy Watch Courts & Law reporter Melissa Boughton will provide full coverage.
