HIGHER EDUCATION COUNCILS
Senate bill provides timeline for W.Va. governor to fill higher ed vacancies _ within 30 days

Reported by: Associated Press
Tuesday, February 11, 2014 5:45 AM EST
CHARLESTON, W.Va.


The West Virginia Senate has unanimously passed a bill to ensure vacancies on higher education commissions, councils and boards are filled in a timely manner.

Sen. Robert Plymale says vacancies on these higher education boards have been left empty for as long as six months in the past. Currently, he says there are 15 people serving on boards whose terms are expired.

Senate Bill 426 would give the governor 30 days to fill any vacancy. The bill approved Monday also prevents members whose terms have expired from serving more than 60 days after their term ends. It now goes to the House of Delegates for consideration.

This bill affects appointments to the Higher Education Policy Commission, institutional governing boards, and the Council for Community and Technical College Education.
