VISIT OUR BOOTH AT THE IEFFERSON COUNTY FAIR--OCT. 13 - 14 - 15 ELECTION AMENDMENT SERIES \ Prof. Win. R. Reu, West Virginia University ~(A ~ |P]i~[AL SERVICE FEATURE OF TIlE WE6T VIRCdNIA PRF.~ A~CIAT~ON) THE PROPOSED Con~tutional improvement Amendment is probably a misnomer. Any proposed amendment should offer some improvement to the Constitution. This amendment would improve only the amending process and the extent to which it does this, if at all, is questionable. In addition to the somewhat insignificant pro- vision that the Legislature may propose amendments at special sessions: the amendment offers two basic constitutional changes. It provides first Sat amend- ments may be submitted for consideration at either general OR special elections. At the present time, they may be submitted ONLY at general elections. Second, it provides that amendments must be placed On a SEPARATE ballot containing no other t~e of question or issue. Unless the proposed amendment is vague in its meaning, one new provision is optional and one is mandatory. It "permits", but does not "direct" that amendments may be submitted to special elections; the mandatory provision specifies a sep~raticn of Candidates and issues on the ballot. BURDEN ON VOTERS support or opposition to a proposed amendment, as was true in 1962 when both wet and dry forces took a stand on the liquor question. But, in the same election, who bothered to ex- plain the legislative amendment or the executive and budget amendment? The voter has few sources of information on amendments and what they propose to do. One place to which he can turn is the candidate for state- wide office who quite often will take a stand on proposed amendments, or offer explanation of them. The present proposed amendment would shut off any such source of information. LEGISLATURE HAS AUTHORITY NOW The second part of the amendment provides for separate ballots for amendments and issues. If, however, they are submitted at special elections for the purpose of considering the amendments or issues only, then there will be no other ballot anyway because there will be no candidates. To submit amendments at general elections would he an admission as to the nonfeasibility or undesirability of the first provision. The first proposal seems to be the one saving The use of separate ballots for amendments, as feature of the amendment. Whether it will be wise required by this proposed amendment, makes man- to submit amendments at special elections is de- datory a power and authority the legislature cur- bateable, but at least the opportunity is granted rently has. All amendments which were submitted to the Legislature to try the procedure to determine between 1920 and 1930, inclusively, were submitted its merits.
