Four Proposed Constitutional Amendments

1

The 2018 impeachment of WV Supreme Court Justices is at the core of Amendment 1.

​

The goal is to clarify that courts don't have authority to intervene in or review impeachment proceedings conducted by the Legislature.

3

Amendment 3 authorizes incorporation of churches and religious institutions.

 

The goal is to modernize our Constitution in a way that remedies what has technically been deemed illegal. It represents another example of antiquated language taken from Virginia, when we seceded from the Old Dominion.

2

Amendment 2 enables the Legislature to take up tax reform, on machinery, equipment and inventory, as well as personal property tax on vehicles.

​

The goal is to modernize West Virginia's tax structure moving from a system set in 1863.

4

Presently, our Constitution says that the supervision of education shall be invested with the State Board of Education, and Amendment 4 gives the Legislature control and authority over the State BOE.

​

 The goal is to clarify that the rules and policies
promulgated by the State BOE, are subject to legislative review, approval, amendment, or rejection.

EMS Levy 

The goal is to provide funding for the acquisition of equipment, other capital improvements, and for payment of a portion of general operating, maintenance, and other expenses to provide emergency medical services to the residents and visitors of Monongalia County. The levy is expected to generate more than $18 million dollars over four years.

Star City residents can vote to align local elections.

The goal is to revise Star City's Municipal Charter to change the election date to align with the November general election beginning in 2024.
