WVC 15 - 7 - 5
§15-7-5. Status, qualifications and term of emergency interim
An emergency interim successor is one who is designated for
possible temporary succession to the powers and duties, but not
the office, of a legislator. No person shall be designated or
serve as an emergency interim successor unless he may under the
constitution and statutes hold the office of the legislator to
whose powers and duties he is designated to succeed, but no
constitutional or statutory provision prohibiting a legislator
from holding another office or prohibiting the holder of another
office from being a legislator shall be applicable to an
emergency interim successor. An emergency interim successor
shall serve at the pleasure of the legislator designating him or
of any subsequent incumbent of the legislative office.
