3-7-101. Creation Membership.

(a)  There is created a special, continuing committee of the general assembly, to be known as the fiscal review committee.

(b)  (1)  It shall be composed of the speaker of the senate, the speaker of the house of representatives, the chair of the senate standing committee on finance, ways and means (or if the committee has co-chairs, then one (1) of them, to be designated by the speaker), the chair of the house standing committee on finance, ways and means (or if the committee has co-chairs, then one (1) of them, to be designated by the speaker), all ex officio members, and fifteen (15) members to be elected as follows:

Six (6) senators and nine (9) representatives to be elected by the respective houses of the general assembly, with each house to elect an appropriate number of members from each of the two (2) major political parties so that the political make-up of the committee, exclusive of the speakers, shall reflect as nearly as possible the same ratio of members of such parties as the parties are represented in the respective houses. However, notwithstanding, no political party shall have less than two (2) elective members from each house of the general assembly.

     (2)  After committee membership is selected pursuant to subdivision (b)(1) and subsection (c), if the required political party ratio or minimum representation is undermined by changed circumstances other than a vacancy in the committee membership, then the required party ratio or minimum representation shall be promptly restored via appointment of an additional interim member or members by the appropriate speaker. The term of any member so appointed shall terminate at the next regular election of committee membership conducted pursuant to subdivision (b)(1) and subsection (c).

(c)  Committee members shall serve for their full term of office as legislators and until their successors are selected and qualified, if reelected to either house of the general assembly. Members are eligible to succeed themselves as members of the committee. As terms expire, successors shall be selected during the fifteen-day organizational session of each general assembly.

(d)  Vacancies among the membership shall be filled in the same manner as in the original selection of members, except that in the case of a vacancy in the elected membership when the general assembly is not in session, the speaker of the body from which the originally elected member came shall appoint a successor, who shall be from the same political party as the member's predecessor.

(e)  The committee shall elect from its membership a chair, a vice chair, and such other officers as it considers necessary.

(f)  All members of the committee, exclusive of the speakers, shall be voting members.
