HB 1999 - H AMD 235

By Representative Stokesbary


    On page 3, beginning on line 8, after "divided into" strike all material through "authority" on line 10 and insert "equal port commissioner districts and conduct district-based elections"


    On page 3, beginning on line 15, strike all of subsections (c) and (d) and insert the following:

    "(c) The initial election under this subsection (3) will include the election of positions as follows:

    (i) Two positions elected to serve one initial two-year term, that will expire at the end of 2021, and subsequent four-year terms; and

    (ii) Three positions elected to serve four-year terms."


    Renumber the remaining subsections consecutively and correct any internal references accordingly.



    EFFECT:  Requires port districts to be divided into equal port commissioner districts rather than county legislative authority districts.  Specifies that beginning in 2019, the initial election of commissioner districts positions will include two positions elected to serve an initial two-year term and three positions to serve four-year terms.  (All subsequent elections will be for four-year terms.)
