Summary as introduced:
Constitutional amendments (first resolution); Governor's term of office; Board of Education. One amendment permits the Governor to succeed himself in office. The amendment allows two terms (either in succession or not in succession) but prohibits election to a third term. The amendment allows Governors elected in 2005 and thereafter to serve two successive terms. A second amendment provides for the appointment of the members of the Board of Education as follows: four members, including a member designated as president, by the Governor; and three members appointed by the House of Delegates and two members appointed by the Senate, in accordance with the rules of each house. Members are to be appointed for four-year terms. Terms are staggered. No person may be appointed to more than two consecutive full terms. Members in office when the amendment takes effect will serve until their successors are appointed. Presently, the Constitution provides that all nine members are appointed by the Governor.
