Legislative Constitutional Amendment

The passage of this amendment would change current eligibility requirements to allow any qualified resident to serve in the state militia if he or she is between the ages of seventeen (17) and seventy (70) and allow nonresidents who are accepted into service to serve if they meet the other requirements. This amendment would also repeal the requirement that any person appointed to a military office, other than the offices of adjutant general, assistant adjutant general for the army national guard and assistant adjutant general for the air national guard, must be a qualified elector.[1]
