In furtherance of the provisions contained in the compact, there shall be three commissioners from the State of California, appointed by the Governor by and with the advice and consent of the Senate. The qualifications and terms of the commissioners shall be in accordance with Article 4 of the compact. A commissioner shall hold office until his successor is appointed and qualified but such successor's term shall expire four years from the legal date of expiration of the term of his predecessor. Any commissioner may be removed from office by the Governor upon charges and after a hearing. The term of any commissioner who ceases to hold the required qualifications shall terminate when a successor may be duly appointed. Vacancies occurring in the office of a commissioner from any reason or cause shall be filled for the unexpired term in the same manner as for a full term appointment.
Each commissioner shall receive his necessary travel expenses incurred in the performance of his official duties in behalf of the commission.
