Should a Governor be prevented from firing a political appointee over policy disagreements?
Monday, January 06, 2014 at 10:50 a.m.

Delegate Tim Hugo (R-Centreville) has filed a bill for the upcoming session of the General Assembly that would prevent future governors from firing members of the Commonwealth Transportation Board for opposing their priorities.  Current law allows the governor to remove a member of the board “at his pleasure.”
