Name Badge For Former Member Of General Assembly
The bill allows a former member of the general assembly to obtain a name badge indicating that the former member served in the general assembly. To obtain a former member name badge, the former member must submit an application to the secretary of the senate (secretary) or the chief clerk of the house of representatives (chief clerk), depending on which chamber of the general assembly the former member served in, or to either the secretary or the chief clerk if the former member served in both chambers. The former member is responsible for the costs associated with obtaining a former member name badge. The secretary of the senate and the chief clerk are required to jointly develop uniform application procedures for obtaining a former member name badge, and the design and color of the badge. The bill requires that the badge state "Former Representative", "Former Senator", or "Former Representative and Senator", depending on which chamber or chambers of the general assembly the former member served in.
