Summary:
Judicial Nominations Commission. Creates the 15-member Judicial Nominations Commission, composed of lawyers from each congressional district and four citizens from the state at large, each to be elected to four-year terms by the General Assembly. The Commission will assist the General Assembly in making its determinations on judicial elections. Each circuit will have a nine-member volunteer nominations committee appointed by the Commission and approved by the General Assembly to assist the Commission in making circuit and district court nominations for that circuit to the General Assembly.

The Commission is to submit to the General Assembly a confidential report and the names of no more than three persons for each vacancy on any court.
