94120.
  

(a) There is in the state government an authority known as the California Educational Facilities Authority. The authority constitutes a public instrumentality and the exercise by the authority of the powers conferred by this chapter shall be deemed and held to be the performance of an essential public function.

(b) The authority shall consist of five members: the Director of Finance, the Controller, the Treasurer, who shall serve as chairperson of the authority, and two members appointed by the Governor to serve for terms of four years; provided that the terms of the members first appointed shall be arranged by the Governor so that such terms shall expire on April 30 in different years. One of the members appointed by the Governor shall be affiliated with a public institution of higher education as a governing board member or in an administrative capacity and the other member shall be affiliated with a private institution of higher education as a governing board member or in an administrative capacity. Each member shall hold office for the term of his or her appointment and shall continue to serve during the term of his or her successor unless and until his or her successor shall have been appointed and qualified. Any vacancy among the members appointed by the Governor shall be filled by appointment for the unexpired term only. A member of the authority shall be eligible for reappointment.

(c) Any member of the authority appointed by the Governor may be removed from office by the Governor for cause after a public hearing.

(d) The members of the authority shall serve without compensation, but the authority may reimburse its members for necessary expenses incurred in the discharge of their duties.

(e) The authority, upon the first appointment of its members and thereafter on or after April 30 in each year, shall annually elect from among its members a vice chairperson who shall hold office until April 30 next ensuing and shall continue to serve during the term of his or her successor unless and until his or her successor shall have been appointed and qualified.

(f) The Director of Finance may designate a deputy or other official in the Department of Finance to act for him or her and represent him or her at all meetings of the authority.

The powers of the authority shall be vested in the members thereof in office from time to time and a majority of the total authorized membership of the authority shall constitute a quorum at any meeting thereof. Action may be taken and motions and resolutions adopted by the authority at any meeting thereof by the affirmative vote of a majority of the members present, unless in any case the bylaws of the authority shall require a larger number. No vacancy in the membership of the authority shall impair the right of a quorum to exercise all the rights and perform all the duties of the authority.

(Amended by Stats. 1979, Ch. 373.)

94123.
  

Notwithstanding any other provision of law neither of the following is a conflict of interest:

(a) Service by a trustee, director, officer, or employee of a participating private college, public college, or public university as a member of the authority, provided that the trustee, director, officer, or employee abstains from discussion, deliberation, action, and vote by the authority under this chapter with respect to the participating private college, public college, or public university for which that member is a trustee, director, officer, or employee.

(b) Affiliation of a member of the authority with a bank that serves the authority as bond trustee, depository of funds, or in any other financial, advisory, or fiduciary capacity.
