§

257. Appointments and vacancies requiring advice and consent of senate

(a) Appointments

required to be made pursuant to section 256 of this title in the month of

February, with the advice and consent of the senate, shall be valid if made and

confirmed at any time during the then regular biennial session of the general

assembly. If not made and confirmed in such month of February, the term of

office of the person appointed and confirmed thereafter shall extend to and

include the day whereon his term would expire had he been appointed and

confirmed in such month of February.

(b) When a

vacancy occurs in an office requiring appointment with the advice and consent

of the senate, an appointment may be made to fill the vacancy. If the

appointment to fill the vacancy is made during any adjournment of the general

assembly the person appointed may validly function in that office during

adjournment until the senate convenes at the next regular, adjourned, or

special session and acts upon the appointment submitted forthwith by the

governor; or if the appointment to fill the vacancy is made during any session

of the general assembly, the person appointed may validly function in that

office until the senate shall act upon the appointment submitted forthwith by

the governor. Thereafter the appointee shall continue in office if the senate

consents to the appointment. (Amended 1975, No. 84, § 2, eff. April 24, 1975;
