"(b) The Commission shall consist of seventeen members, with two members from each congressional district appointed by the Governor, with the advice and consent of the Senate, three members at large appointed by the Governor, one member from the Senate appointed by the President of the Senate and one member from the House of Representatives appointed by the Speaker. The first appointed members from the first and second congressional districts and one at large member shall serve until June, 1984.
