(Hershey) -- A committee of Penn State's Board of Trustees is recommending that the governor and university president no longer be voting members.

The board's governance committee has voted unanimously to recommend the change, which trustees are expected to consider in May.

The move would reduce the size of the board from 32 to 30 members. Penn State's lawyers say the board has the authority to make the change, and it wouldn't require legislative approval.

Other proposals involve cutting down the time required for notice before the board meets.

Trustee Ken Frazier is also expected to make a presentation about the school's report into how the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal was handled.
