Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation significantly impacts the makeup of Regional Commission (RC) Councils.   Removed from the current council make up are the three residents appointed by the Governor; one appointment by the Lieutenant Governor; one appointment by the House Speaker; and the option for an RC to include additional members at its discretion.  In return, each County Commission in the region will appoint one nonpublic resident of their respective county.  Additionally, councils are no longer to establish committees as they see fit, but will have to appoint an executive committee comprising no less than five but no more than nine members.  The executive committee is charged with developing and overseeing the RC's budget and work program, nominate executive directors, oversee personnel policies, establish council committees and appoint committee members, and carry out other tasks assigned by the council.
