Summary

The proposed measure provides that henceforth appointments in the executive branch of the government shall not require the advice and consent of the Governor's Council. Exceptions to this provision include appointments to the Youth Service Board, Industrial Accident Board, Commission of the Department of Public Utilities, Parole Board and Appellate Tax Board, which appointments shall continue to require Council Action. However, should the Council fail to act upon such appointments within thirty calendar days, then the person involved shall be deemed to have been lawfully appointed. Any appointment in the executive branch by an officer other than the Governor which heretofore required council approval shall henceforth require approval by the Governor.

Removals from office shall no longer require the advice and consent of the Council, except in the case of the Youth Service Board, which removals must still receive Council approval, such recommended removal from the Youth Service Board must be acted upon by the Council within thirty calendar days; otherwise the proposed removal shall become effective as if approval had been given. In the case of any appointment which heretofore required approval the Governor may, within fifteen days of making the appointment, remove the person appointed without cause.

The Council shall no longer be required to approve the fixing of any compensation for services rendered in the executive department. And henceforth there need be no approval [by] the Council of actions or agreements by executive officers, including but not limited to borrowings and loans, investments, leases, licenses, purchases and conveyances, and [illegible] and also including the promulgation of rules and regulations.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Governor shall at all times remain free to seek the advice and consent of the Council upon any matter.
