(4) The term of members of the board shall run from the adjournment of one odd-numbered year regular session to the convening of the next odd-numbered year regular session.

(5) If a vacancy occurs in the board, either the Speaker, if the legislator previously filling the position was a member of the House, or the President, if the legislator previously filling the position was a member of the Senate, shall fill such vacancy by an appointment for the unexpired term. However, such appointment, before becoming effective, shall be confirmed by the remaining members of the board, sitting as such board. [1953 c.386 §6; 2007 c.695 §2; 2011 c.545 §14]
