The committee shall render its report and recommendations to the Governor and the General Assembly on January 15, 2006, at which time it shall dissolve. Members of the committee shall serve until their successors are appointed and qualify, and vacancies must be filled for the remainder of the unexpired term in the manner of the original appointment. The committee must be co-chaired by the senior member of the Senate and the senior member of the House of Representatives who are serving on the committee. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 8-13-770 of the 1976 Code, members of the General Assembly may be appointed to serve on this committee.
(C) The staffing for the committee must be provided by the appropriate standing committees of the House and Senate, and employees of the State Budget and Control Board.
