Makes the legislature responsible for appointments to state commissions.

 

  • Remove the governor's power to make appointments to the Bipartisan State Board of Ethics and Elections Enforcement, meaning legislative leaders would make all eight appointments to the board, and
  • Provide that the state legislature controls the powers, duties, appointments, and terms of office for state boards and commissions, as prescribed by law

 

   The ballot measure would make the North Carolina State Legislature responsible for appointing commissioners to the eight-member Bipartisan State Board of Ethics and Elections Enforcement, which administers ethics and election laws. The state Senate President Pro-tempore would select four commissioners for the Bipartisan State Board of Ethics and Elections Enforcement from lists of candidates from the chamber's majority leader and minority leader. The state House Speaker would select four commissioners from lists of candidates from the chamber's majority leader and minority leader. The measure would require that no more than four commission members be registered with a single political party. As of 2018, the Bipartisan State Board of Ethics and Elections Enforcement has nine members, with the governor appointing eight members from lists provided by legislative leaders and one unaffiliated member.

The ballot measure would also provide that the state legislature controls the powers, duties, appointments, and terms of office for state boards and commissions, as prescribed by law.
