Lewis: Judicial reforms may not fly in January session

Raleigh, N.C. Lawmakers may not find enough consensus on judiciary reforms to pass anything when they gather again for a special legislative session next month, House Rules Chairman David Lewis
said Friday.

Lewis, R-Harnett, a key leader in the House, said legislators haven't coalesced behind proposals to redraw election districts for judges or to move instead to an appointments system. There has been a divide between the House and the Senate on this, but there also are indications House Republicans aren't all on board with proposed new districts for judges, which could prove important given the possibility of veto from Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper.

"If we can't get agreement, and that was one of the main things we were going to do, it may be a very short session," Lewis said.

He also said there's no plan, at the moment, to approve potential constitutional amendments during the coming session. That would include a voter ID proposal.
