Summary:
Virginia Sentencing Commission; membership. Staggers the terms of the members of the Commission appointed during the year 2000 and allows any current member to be reappointed for a staggered term to ensure that there will not be a complete turn-over of the Commission upon expiration of the current members' second terms. The bill increases the terms of members appointed after 2000 from three years to four and authorizes a vice chairman for the Commission, to be appointed by the chairman. Finally the members are authorized to serve no more than three consecutive terms.
