RALEIGH, N.C. — A North Carolina judge is going before a state commission that could remove him from the bench.

The Judicial Standards Commission will hold a hearing Thursday on Mecklenburg County Judge Bill Belk. The commission cited him for making disparaging comments about Chief Justice Sarah Parker and also for violating the Code of Judicial Conduct for continuing to serve on corporate boards.

Belk has said the conduct code does not explicitly prohibit work on corporate boards and that the outside work has not violated the court’s impartiality. He denied making disparaging remarks about Parker.

If the commission disciplines Belk, the penalty could range from a public reprimand to suspension or removal from the bench.

RALEIGH — New census data being released is expected to offer a new look at health insurance coverage in North Carolina as the reform debate in Washington heats up again.

The U.S. Census Bureau on Thursday will release annual population and community data that contains information about health coverage across the United States. The census data contains
information on income, poverty and health insurance coverage last year.

Data specific to North Carolina is also due to be released.

A state health research agency reported in March that recession-fueled layoffs gave North Carolina the country’s highest growth rate of people without health insurance.

The North Carolina Institute of Medicine estimated that as many as 1.8 million North Carolina residents under 65 were without health insurance.
