    Summary of the Proposed Strike-Everything Amendment to HB 2189

    The proposed strike-everything amendment to HB 2189 creates the five-member Arizona Game and Fish Commission Appointment Recommendation Board (Board) to recommend to the Governor candidates to fill vacancies on the Arizona Game and Fish Commission (Commission).

    History

    Pursuant to Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.) § 17-201, the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD) is authorized to administer laws relating to wildlife. The control of the AZGFD is vested in the Commission. The Commission is comprised of five Governor-appointed members who are confirmed by the Senate. Not more than three members can be members of the same political party, and no two members may be residents of the same county. Commission members must be well informed on the subject of wildlife and requirements for its conservation. Appointments to the Commission are for terms of five years and expire on the third Monday in January of the appropriate year.

    The responsibilities of the Commission are outlined in A.R.S. § 17-231 and include establishing rules and policies to preserve wildlife, outline proper methods of taking game and suitable methods for the importation and exportation of wildlife. The Commission also appoints the Director of the AZGFD.

    Provisions

    ·          Establishes the Board consisting of five members appointed by the Governor, with the consent of the Senate.

    ·          Specifies the membership of the Board as follows:

    Ø        One member of an established non-profit organization whose membership largely consists of a cross-section of wildlife conservation and sportsmen organizations throughout Arizona and not affiliated with a national wildlife conservation or sportsman’s organization.

    Ø        One member of an established non-profit organization whose articles of incorporation or bylaws stipulate its mission as increasing, sustaining or otherwise conserving specified animals.

    Ø        One member of an established non-profit organization whose articles of incorporation or bylaws define it as a sportsman’s organization whose membership is primarily confined to a specific geographic area or a chapter of a national sportsman’s organization.

    Ø        One member of an established non-profit organization whose membership is comprised of cattlemen or ranchers.

    Ø        One member of the general public.

    ·          Specifies that Board members serve five year terms and must maintain membership in the organization the member represented when appointed.

    ·          Allows the Governor to remove a Board member for inefficiency, neglect of duty or misconduct in office and replace the member with an individual from the same organization represented by the former member.

    ·          Requires the Governor to appoint an individual from the same respective organization to fill a vacancy on the Board created by death, resignation or removal within 30 days.

    ·          Specifies that three members of the Board create a quorum.

    ·          Requires meetings of the Board to be held at the Department’s main office or at a regional office on public notice by the Department at least one meeting before the meeting.

    ·          Requires the Board to assist the Governor by identifying, interviewing, evaluating and recommending candidates to fill vacancies on the Commission.

    ·          Outlines the process for recommending candidates to the Commission as follows:

    Ø        The Governor delivers a final list of applicants to the Board within five days after the close of the application process.

    Ø        The Board reviews the list of applicants and their applications and conducts interviews, evaluations and recommendations of the candidates.  The time periods relating to this process depend on the nature of the vacancy and include public forums.

    Ø        For vacancies caused by terms about to expire, the Board makes it recommendation of two to five candidates from the Governor’s final list to the Governor by November 25.

    Ø        For vacancies caused by death, resignation or removal, the Board makes its recommendation of two to five candidates from the Governor’s final list to the Governor within one week following a public forum to interview candidates.

    ·          Specifies the initial terms of office for Board members.

    ·          Makes technical and conforming changes.
