(Cite as: 3 V.S.A. § 2002)
  • § 2002. Executive Orders

    (a) The Governor may propose by Executive Order changes in the organization of the Executive Branch of government which are not consistent with or will supersede existing organization provided for by law. The Executive Order shall be submitted to both houses of the General Assembly.

    (b) An Executive Order issued under this chapter shall be presented to the General Assembly not later than January 15th of the year in which the General Assembly sits. The Executive Order shall become effective unless disapproved by resolution of either House of the General Assembly within 90 days, or before final adjournment of that annual session, whichever comes first.

    (c) Executive Orders which become effective under this chapter shall be printed with the session laws and published as an appendix to the Vermont Statutes Annotated.

    (d)(1) Notwithstanding subsections (a) and (b) of this section, the Governor may revise existing Executive Orders to use respectful language consistent with Vermont Statutes Annotated and the respectful language study produced in accordance with 2012 Acts and Resolves No. 24, Sec. 1. The authority pertains only to nonsubstantive revisions using respectful language and does not confer authority to make other changes.

    (2) All new executive orders proposed by the Governor shall use, to the fullest extent possible, respectful language consistent with the Vermont Statutes Annotated and the respectful language study produced in accordance with 2012 Acts and Resolves No. 24, Sec. 1, where appropriate.
