Special Session of the General Assembly Called in North Carolina
On February 18, Gov. Pat McCrory called a special session of the General Assembly, for the purpose of drawing new congressional district maps. The new maps are needed because two congressional districts have been declared unconstitutional by the United States District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina just ahead of the upcoming primary election.
The regular session of the General Assembly is not scheduled to meet until April 25.
