By January 15, 2000, the commission shall report the proposed design, location, and dedication date of the monument to the General Assembly. Upon the dedication of this monument, the commission shall dissolve. Upon dissolution the State shall ensure proper maintenance of the monument as is done for other historical monuments on the grounds of the Capitol Complex.
The commission shall be comprised of three members of the Senate to be appointed by the President Pro Tempore of the Senate, three members of the House of Representatives to be appointed by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and three members who may or may not be members of the General Assembly to be appointed by the Governor. Notwithstanding Section 8-13-770 of the 1976 Code of Laws or any other provision of law, members of the General Assembly may be appointed to this commission and may serve on the commission.
