Reform the Process for Removing Public Officials

End Misuse of the Removal Process!

Under current Virginia law, local officials such as school board members and Commonwealth Attorneys have been harassed through open ended removal proceedings. It’s costly and time consuming for the officials to oppose these efforts. And they can be politically damaging, even if they do not succeed. HB 265 would improve the removal process so that it will be carried out more fairly.

HB 265: Removal of public officers from office; petition requirements; procedure.
