OFFICES AND OFFICERS - STATE - GOVERNOR - EFFECT OF VETO OF SALARY INCREASE ON ELIGIBILITY OF LEGISLATORS TO RUN FOR OFFICE OF GOVERNOR IN 1964
OFFICES AND OFFICERS ‑- STATE ‑- GOVERNOR ‑- EFFECT OF VETO OF SALARY INCREASE ON ELIGIBILITY OF LEGISLATORS TO RUN FOR OFFICE OF GOVERNOR IN 1964 Under Article II, § 13, of the State Constitution, no member of the legislature, during the term for which he is elected, may be elected to any office the emoluments of which have been increased during his term; therefore, any state senator elected in November, 1960, (for a four-year term expiring in January, 1965) who was a member of the 1961 legislature which increased the emoluments of the office of the governor (by overriding the governor's veto of chapter 316, Laws of 1959) is not eligible to run for that office in 1964.
