BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE
As proposed, House Bill 1534 would require that the office of the governor appoint a sheriff, a municipal police officer, and a firefighter to serve as members of the council.
It is the committee's opinion that this bill does not expressly grant any additional rulemaking authority to a state officer, department, agency, or institution.
SECTION 1 requires that the office of the governor appoint a sheriff, municipal police officer, and firefighter to the Critical Infrastructure Protection Council.
SECTION 2 requires the Governor to develop applicable procedures for selecting appointees from among sheriffs, police officers, and firefighters.
This act shall take effect immediately if it receives the necessary vote, otherwise it will take effect September 1, 2005.
