“There are a number of things that have been talked about,” he said, according to the News and Observer. “I am not in a position at this point to list or specifically articulate what they are because no decisions have been made, finally as to what exactly will be brought up.”
House Speaker Tim Moore also declined to specify the measures North Carolina lawmakers would discuss.
"We’re looking at two bills at this point, but it depends what other bills folks file,” he said, per the News and Observer. “I can’t (explain) until it goes through the caucus process. Some of the ideas that we were discussing at the end of the last session are some of the ideas that you may see come up today."
The mystery special session follows speculation that North Carolina Republicans could use a special session to expand the number of seats on the state Supreme Court before McCrory left office. In the November election, the court flipped to Democratic control. By adding two seats to the court, legislators would give McCrory the ability to appoint two conservative justices before he leaves office, restoring the Republican majority.
Moore has said in the past that the state legislature will not consider a court-packing scheme, and he repeated that on Wednesday.
"I do not expect to see the court packing that people are talking about," he said, according to the News and Observer.
On Wednesday afternoon, state Rep. David Lewis (R), chair of the House Rules Committee, hinted to local reporters that lawmakers will consider legislation regarding the governor's power.
