The adjournment resolution adopted by a majority of N.C. House members last Friday included an announcement that the Legislature will reconvene on August 3 to take care of “unfinished business.” Overriding vetoes of bills by Gov. Roy Cooper and consideration of proposed amendments to the state constitution could be among the issues. Redistribution of sales tax revenue to low wealth counties is still a hot button issue. Legislators also have scheduled a session in September, perhaps to redraw judicial districts for judges, district attorneys and court personnel.
Also on the table is drawing new districts for General Assembly members. Senate Pro Temp President Phil Berger has appointed a Senate redistricting committee chaired by Sen. Ralph Hise of Mitchell County. The committee includes 14 Republicans and five Democrats.
