CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS
NUMBER SUBJECT TEXT ENDORSEMENT
1

Article I. Bill of Rights.
Section 11. Due process of law; obligation of contracts; taking of private property; prohibited discrimination; jury trial in civil cases.
"Shall Section 11 of Article I (Bill of Rights) of the Constitution of Virginia be amended (i) to require that eminent domain only be exercised where the property taken or damaged is for public use and, except for utilities or the elimination of a public nuisance, not where the primary use is for private gain, private benefit, private enterprise, increasing jobs, increasing tax revenue, or economic development; (ii) to define what is included in just compensation for such taking or damaging of property; and (iii) to prohibit the taking or damaging of more private property than is necessary for the public use? NO

This amendment fails to distinguish whether property is used by the owner or merely held for speculation. Some communities are blighted with vacant, neglected buildings that pose a fire hazard to the neighborhood. This amendment could prevent the state or its municipalities from buying vacant buildings and turning them over to people or businesses that would occupy, repair, and maintain them. Instead, speculators will be free to promote blight to depress property values in a neighborhood, making property cheap for them to buy and assemble for resale.
2

Article IV. Legislature.
Section 6. Legislative sessions.
"Shall Section 6 of Article IV (Legislature) of the Constitution of Virginia concerning legislative sessions be amended to allow the General Assembly to delay by no more than one week the fixed starting date for the reconvened or "veto" session when the General Assembly meets after a session to consider the bills returned to it by the Governor with vetoes or amendments?" NO

This amendment is supposed to allow legislators to delay an eight-day legislative session to avoid Easter week or Passover. However, as it only allows a postponement of one week, it might postpone the session from ending in Easter week or Passover to beginning in Easter week or Passover. It does not allow a two-week delay that would allow the session to miss a holiday week altogether. Moreover, as Easter and Passover do not always coincide, a one-week postponement might push the session from one holiday to another. The proposed amendment is inadequate to accomplish its purpose.

In Virginia, all legislative sessions are rushed and squeezed into a few winter months, when transportation is more difficult. Aside from a few who represent the Richmond region, legislators have little time to return to their home districts to consult their constituents about pending legislation. Instead, most must stay in hotels in Richmond, where lobbyists can pressure them. The legislative session should be broken up so that legislators have time to read the bills that they must vote on and discuss them with their constituents.
