Craig McDermott, who has done a terrific job following the controversy over the candidates for the Independent Redistricting Commission, brings us an update about today's meeting, in which the Commission on Appellate Court Appointments decided against making any changes to the list of finalists that will be forwarded to legislative leaders. The gist:
The Arizona Commission on Appellate Court Appointments met today to consider the "Communication from House Speaker Kirk Adams and Senate President-Elect Russell Pearce" - basically, they met to decide whether to reopen the nomination process for the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission because Pearce and Adams didn't like the list of candidates from which they will select two members of the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission (AIRC).
Summary: NO, the Appellate Court Appointments Commission won't reopen the process.
