Legislators filled several lower court vacancies. But they were unable to agree on successors for two Supreme Court justices.

Delegate David Albo of Fairfax County chairs the House Courts of Justice Committee. He says the House wants to promote Virginia Court of Appeals Judges Elizabeth McClanahan and Arthur Kelsey -- while Senate favors McClanahan and Appeals Court Judge Cleo Powell.

The two chambers will have another chance to work out an agreement when they return for congressional redistricting.

A date for that session has not been set.
