The Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously supported a bill sponsored by Sen. Mark Green, R-Clarksville, to create a new post in the 19th judicial district that will be filled by an appointment from Gov. Bill Haslam. The 19th judicial district is currently served by three circuit court judges and one chancery court judge: Judge Ross Hicks, Judge Bill Goodman, Judge John Gasaway and Chancellor Laurence McMillan. The new position will be on the August 2016 ballot. The Leaf Chronicle has more.
