Summary

The summary from the Legislative Council for this measure was:

Prepared by the Arizona Legislative Council in compliance with ARS. 19-124 Proposition 103 would provide that appointments to the Board of Regents of the Universities be confirmed by the senate and that confirmation proceedings accord with legislatively enacted procedures.

The Arizona Constitution now does not require senate approval of such appointments. The procedures prescribed by current statutes 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 a 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.[1][3]
