Read the first time January 9, 2007.
To whom was referred a Bill (H. 3155) to amend Section 13-1-1050, Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1976, relating to terms of members of the Aeronautics Commission, so as to provide that no commission, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
ROBERT E. WALKER for Committee.
TO AMEND SECTION 13-1-1050, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO TERMS OF MEMBERS OF THE AERONAUTICS COMMISSION, SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT NO COMMISSION MEMBER MAY SERVE MORE THAN TWO CONSECUTIVE TERMS BUT MAY BE ELIGIBLE TO SERVE AGAIN FOUR YEARS AFTER THE EXPIRATION OF HIS TERM.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 13-1-1050(A) of the 1976 Code, as added by Act 11 of 2005, is amended to read:
"(A) Notwithstanding any other provision of law,
beginning February 15, 2005, commissioners must be elected by the legislative delegation of each congressional district. For the purposes of electing a commission member, a legislator shall vote only in the congressional district in which he resides. All commission members must serve for a term of office of four years that expires on February fifteenth of the appropriate year. Commissioners shall continue to serve until their successors are elected and qualify, provided that a commissioner may only serve until their successors are elected and qualify, and provided that a commissioner may only serve in a hold-over capacity for a period not to exceed six months. A member of the commission may succeed himself on the commission for a second term, but no member of the commission may serve more than two consecutive terms. After serving two consecutive terms, a commission member may not be eligible to serve on the commission until four years after the expiration of his second term. Any vacancy occurring in the office of commissioner must be filled by election in the manner provided in this article for the unexpired term only. No person is eligible to serve as a commission member who is not a resident of that district at the time of his appointment, except that the at-large commission member may be appointed from any county in the State regardless of whether another commissioner is serving from that county. Failure by a commission member to maintain residency in the district for which he is elected shall result in the forfeiture of his office. The at-large commission member, upon confirmation by the Senate, shall serve as chairman of the commission."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
