Resign to Run (Watch)

CS/HB 105 (Santiago) and SB 186 (Hutson) require an elected or appointed officer (including municipal) who qualifies for federal public office to resign from his or her current office if the terms of the current office and the federal office run concurrently. The bills specify the timeframes and manner for submission of a resignation and procedures for filling a vacancy created by a resignation. (O’Hara)
