SENATE BILL NO. 228

AN ACT TO AMEND CHAPTER 14 OF TITLE 24 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE APPOINTMENT OF MEMBERS TO THE BOARD OF ELECTRICAL EXAMINERS.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE:

Section 1. Amend Section 1402, Chapter 14, Title 24 of the Delaware Code by striking existing subsections (c), (d) and (e) in their entirety and substituting in lieu thereof the following:

"(c) Each Board member shall be appointed for a term of 3 years, but no member may be appointed to more than 2 successive full terms. A person who has never served on the Board may be appointed to the Board two consecutive times, but no such person thereafter shall be eligible for two consecutive appointments. No person who has been twice appointed to the Board, or who has served on the Board for six years within any nine-year period, shall again be appointed to the Board until an interim period of at least one term has expired since such person last served.

(d) Any act or vote by a person appointed in violation of subsection (c) of this section shall be invalid. An amendment or revision of this
Chapter is not sufficient cause for any appointment or attempted appointment in violation of subsection (c) of this Chapter, unless such amendment or revision amends this section to permit such an appointment.

(e) Any vacancy in the membership of the Board shall be filled by the Governor for the unexpired portion of the three-year term. The Governor shall remove from the Board any member whose license or registration has been revoked or suspended, and may, after hearing, remove any member of the Board for neglect of duty or other just cause."

Section 2. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, persons currently serving on the Board on the effective date of this Act shall be limited to one additional three-year term only.

Approved July 12, 1994.
