Measure 29
Certified Ballot Title
November 5, 1996 General Election

AMENDS CONSTITUTION: GOVERNOR'S APPOINTEES MUST VACATE
OFFICE IF SUCCESSOR NOT TIMELY CONFIRMED

RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote requires Governor's appointees to vacate office if successor not confirmed within 90 days.

RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote retains law allowing Governor's appointees to serve until successor is appointed and confirmed.

SUMMARY: Currently, an official appointed by the Governor and subject to Senate confirmation may continue in office until the official's successor is appointed and confirmed. This measure amends the Oregon Constitution to provide that such an official may not hold office longer than 90 days after the end of the official's term. The measure could cause an appointed office to be vacant until the official's successor is confirmed. This could preclude some state agencies from issuing orders or conducting other business during such a vacancy.
