§

2503. Commission; membership-Article III

Each state

joining herein shall appoint three representatives to a commission hereby

designated as the northeastern forest fire protection commission. One shall be

the state forester or officer holding an equivalent position in such state who

is responsible for forest fire control. The second shall be a member of the

legislature of such state designated by the commission or committee on

interstate cooperation of such state, or if there be none, or if said commission

on interstate cooperation cannot constitutionally designate the said member,

such legislator shall be designated by the governor thereof; provided that if

it is constitutionally impossible to appoint a legislator as a commissioner

from such state, the second member shall be appointed by the governor of said

state in his discretion. The third member shall be a person designated by the

governor as the responsible representative of the governor. In the event that

any province of the Dominion of Canada shall become a member of this

commission, it shall designate three members who will approximate this pattern

of representation to the extent possible under the law and practices of such

province. This commission shall be a body corporate with the powers and duties

set forth herein.
