§29-2A-2. Creation and membership.
There is hereby created an aeronautics commission, to be known
as "The West Virginia State Aeronautics Commission", to consist of
five members to be appointed by the governor, by and with the
advice and consent of the Senate. One of such members shall be the
secretary of transportation ex officio, whose term as such member
shall continue for the period that he or she holds the office of
secretary of transportation. The other four members of the
commission shall be appointed by the governor, each to serve a term
beginning the first day of July, one thousand nine hundred
forty-seven, one to serve for a term of one year, one to serve for
a term of two years, one to serve for a term of three years and one
to serve for a term of four years. The successors of the members
(other than the secretary of transportation) initially appointed as
provided herein shall be appointed for terms of four years each in
the same manner as the members originally appointed under this
article, except that any person appointed to fill a vacancy
occurring prior to the expiration of the term for which his or her
predecessor was appointed shall be appointed only for the remainder
of such term. Each member shall serve until the appointment and
qualification of his or her successor. No more than three members
of the commission shall be members of the same political party.
All members of the commission shall be citizens and residents of
this state. The members of the commission who shall be appointed
by the governor as provided by this section shall be selected with
due regard to their fitness by reason of their aeronautical
knowledge and practical experience in the field of aeronautics. In making such appointments, the governor shall, so far as may be
possible and practicable, select the several members from different
geographical sections of the state.
No member shall receive any salary for his or her services,
but each shall be reimbursed for actual and necessary expenses
incurred by such member in the performance of his or her duties in
accordance with state travel rules.
