Vice Chairman Tom Garrett says the changes reflect concerns residents voiced during public forums held earlier in the year. The changes clarify the role of a transitional committee appointed to speed the merger if the plan passes and moves elections for new officials from 2013 to 2014 to avoid a special election. The changes also include an &ldquo;out&rdquo; clause allowing voters to revert to the current government.

Most felons would be eligible to vote after they have served their sentences or completed probation. It would not apply to those convicted of treason, intentional killing, sex crimes or bribery. If approved in the Senate, the proposal would then go to the secretary of state.</p> Fri, 17 Feb 2012 15:09:13 +0000 Drew Adams 16962 at http://wkms.org the morning cram [we don't usually see this much activity in a dead person edition] http://wkms.org/post/morning-cram-we-dont-usually-see-much-activity-dead-person-edition <p><span style="color: rgb(34, 34, 34); font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 20px; ">Breaking News: Zombies interested in more than brains.</span></p> Tue, 14 Feb 2012 14:54:57 +0000 Gary Pitts 16914 at http://wkms.org the morning cram [we don't usually see this much activity in a dead person edition]
