AN ACT Redistributing the Powers of the Executive Council (1977)

Courtesy of Lise from Maine

PUBLIC LAWS OF THE STATE OF MAINE AS PASSED BY THE One Hundred and Seventh Legislature AT THE FIRST SPECIAL SESSION January 19, 1976 to April 29, 1976 AND THE SECOND SPECIAL SESSION June 14, 1976.

1977, Chap. 6 CONFIRMATION OF APPOINTMENTS – redistribution of powers to the Legislature to select or reject judges. View HERE.

Original Constitution of Maine (1820), click here.

Pursuant to the original constitution (1820) Art 5 sec 8, the governor shall nominate, and, with the advice and consent of the Council, appoint all judicial officers…..

This 1977 Act contradicts the original constitution.

The legislature (Judiciary Committee) has no authority to be involved in the acceptance or rejection of any nomination and appointment of judges.
