By LI3OK HATCH LITTLE ROCK Lfl - Of the thre : proposed constitutional amom at>! tl , en '.u °" lhe £ cn e r al election ba *Tlol, the only one which seems t have attracted a great deal < general attention is the Mack Blackwell measure. The proposed amendment, oft cially No. 43, would reorganlz the stale Highway Commission Its adoption has been advocate by various individuals and groups and /D e m o c r a t i c Qubernatorla Nominee Francis Cherry. He ha named (he persons he plans t appoint to the first revised com mission if the amendment carries TJie popular name Is derived fron those of State Senators Y. M Mack and Lawrence Elackwel ' who proposed it during lhe 195 Legislature. Amendment No. 42 would reduce from the present 12 to five th< number of members of the High way Commission. Staggered Terms First appointments, to be mad, next January If the amcndme'n carries, would be for two. four ( Btx, eight and 10 years with th< length of individual members r to be determined by lot. Like nl subsequent appointments, t h e j would be made by the governor subject to confirmation by the Seriate. As the initial terms pire all appointments thereafter : ywould be for 10 years each, a pro- P?ision which would make it pos • sible for a governor to customarily appoint only one person during any one term in office. The proposal provides that a commissioner, may be removed by the governor "only for the same causes that apply to other con stituiional officers." The commissioner would have the right of appeal to the courts. Another avenue also is provided .for removal. The Senate, while in session, could conduct removal hearings on petition of as many as five of its members. A majority of the Senate could remove the commissioner. Hearings would be public, but the Senate, would vote in executive session. A final provision, apparently designed to clarify the status of the highway director, soys that he shall be appointed by the Commission. Heretofore, the director has been the governor's appointee. The proposed amendment would Bet up the highway commission as a constitutional—rather than statutory—agency time.
