Every two years the Governor will appoint one candidate from each party. Candidates must be appointed by July 1 in even-numbered years. When a vacancy on the Commission occurs, the House and Senate leadership of the political party of the vacating member must submit three candidates for selection within 30 days. The Governor has 15 days to appoint the new member. The new member will serve only the remainder of the unexpired six-year term of the vacating member. All references to the Highway Commission or the Highways and Transportation Commission and the Department of Highways in the statutes will mean the Transportation Commission and the Department of Transportation.
