Veto Override to Streamline Judiciary Approved by House

The North Carolina House of Representatives approved its third veto override of Gov. Roy Cooper on Wednesday, preserving legislation to improve North Carolina’s judicial branch by allowing a streamlined Court of Appeals to share its caseload with the state Supreme Court.

The bill’s primary sponsor Rep. Justin Burr (R-Stanly) issued a statement:

“Governor Cooper has a history of packing the Court of Appeals for political purposes, so it’s no surprise the House had to override his veto to streamline the judicial branch and ensure efficient use of taxpayer money,” Burr said.
