AGLO 1973 NO. 33 > Mar 2 1973

If the governor makes an appointment which is subject to senatorial confirmation under Article XIII, § 1 of the Washington Constitution or a similar statutory provision, and the senate fails to act at its first session following such appointment, it is not necessary that the appointee's name again be submitted to the next session of the legislature in order for the senate to have jurisdiction to act on the appointment.
