AN ACT TO MAKE VARIOUS CHANGES TO THE SUPERIOR COURT DISTRICTS, DISTRICT COURT DISTRICTS, AND PROSECUTORIAL DISTRICTS.
House amendment amends the 4th edition.
Further amends GS 7A-41(a) by moving Pender County in its entirety to superior court District 5A, also consisting of part of New Hanover County (the previous edition made these changes to the composition of District 5A set out in subsection (b) of the statute; currently, Pender County is placed partly in Districts 5A and 5B). Additionally, assigns Districts 5B and 5C, consisting of parts of New Hanover County, to the second judicial division.
Amends the implementation provisions for the proposed changes to GS 7A-41, requiring elections to be held in 2018 and every eight years thereafter for Districts 5A and 5C (was, Districts 12A and 12C, parts of Cumberland County), and requiring elections to be held in 2020 and every eight years thereafter for District 5B (was, District 12B, part of Cumberland County).
Further amends GS 7A-133(b), which sets out the composition of partial district court districts, adding that the names and boundaries of voting tabulation districts (VTDs) specified for Wake County are as shown on the 2010 Census Redistricting TIGER/Line Shapefiles (the previous edition only specifies VTDs for Mecklenburg County in addition to the existing specification for Vance County VTDs).
Amends the implementation provisions for proposed changes to GS 7A-133 regarding district court judicial districts. Requires one judge (was, two judges) in District 10B (part of Wake County) and one judge (was, two judges) in District 10F (part of Wake County) to take office on January 1, 2019, with elections in 2018 and every four years thereafter. Requires two judges (was, one judge) in District 10B and two judges (was, one judge) in District 10F to take office on January 1, 2021, with elections in 2020 and every four years thereafter.
Makes technical change to the conditional directive for the Director of the Budget in Section 3.
