An amendment relating to a commission on judicial qualifications; and amending Article 6.1, Section 1, Arizona Constitution, by requiring that confirmation by the senate of certain commission appointments by the governor be "in the manner prescribed by law."
If you FAVOR Proposition 101, Vote YES
The summary from the Legislative Council for this measure was:
Proposition 101 would provide that senate confirmation of appointments to membership on the commission on judicial qualifications be processed in accordance legislatively enacted procedures .. The Arizona Constitution now requires senate approval of such appointments, but the constitution does not now require that confirmation procedures be as prescribed by the legislature.
The procedures prescribed by current statute concerning appointments by the governor that require the approval of the senate provide that during a regular legislative session the senate may accept, reject or fail to take action on an appointment by the governor. If accepted, the governor appoints such person. If rejected, the governor may appoint another person. If no action is taken by the senate, the governor may appoint that person after the close of the legislative session. If the senate is not in regular session, the governor has to transmit the appointment to the president of the senate during the first week of the next regular session, after which the regular procedure applies for the acceptance, rejection or failure to take final action.
