Increases the membership of the Board by six nonlegislative citizen members by adding three members to be appointed by the Speaker of the House of Delegates and three by the Senate Committee on Rules. The Board currently has 14 nonlegislative citizen members appointed by the Governor and four ex officio members. The bill also allows the gubernatorial appointees to the Board to be removed for malfeasance, misfeasance, incompetence, misconduct, neglect of duty, absenteeism, conflicts of interest, failure to carry out the policies of the Commonwealth, or refusal to carry out a lawful directive of the Governor. Vacancies are filled in the same manner of original appointment.
