relating to the health benefits trust fund.

 

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF HAWAII:

SECTION 1. Section 87A-6, Hawaii Revised Statutes, is amended to read as follows:

"[[]87A-6[]] Term of a trustee; vacancy[.]; restrictions. (a) The term of office of each trustee shall be four years; provided that a trustee may be reappointed for one additional consecutive four-year term. Each term shall commence on January 1 and expire on December 31. The governor may reduce the terms of those initially appointed so as to provide, as far as practicable, for the expiration of an equal number of terms at intervals of one year.

A vacancy on the board shall be filled by appointment of the governor; provided that the criteria used for selecting the successor shall be the same criteria used for selecting the person's predecessor. The person appointed to fill a vacancy shall serve for the remainder of the term of the person's predecessor.

If by the end of a trustee's term a trustee is not reappointed or the trustee's successor is not appointed, the trustee shall serve until the trustee's successor is appointed.

(b) No trustee shall serve concurrently on any other board or commission of the State of Hawaii as an appointee or as designee for an appointee during the trustee's term."

SECTION 2. Statutory material to be repealed is bracketed and stricken. New statutory material is underscored.

SECTION 3. This Act shall take effect on July 1, 2003.
