Rule 130. Commission Meetings
(a) Meetings of the Commission may be called by the Chair or a majority of the members by written notice to the other members specifying the time and place of meeting. Such notice shall be mailed or delivered at least seven (7) days before the time specified, except that an emergency meeting may be held on shorter notice if the Chair or a majority of the Commissioners conclude that it is essential to hold an emergency meeting. The right to notice of a meeting may be waived by any Commissioner either before or after the meeting takes place. Attendance at a meeting by any member shall constitute a waiver of such notice unless the member, at or promptly after the beginning of such meeting, objects to the holding of the meeting on the ground of lack of, or insufficiency of, notice. The Commission may meet by electronic media.
(b) The Chair shall issue a call for a meeting promptly upon learning of the existence or anticipated existence of a vacancy on the Independent Redistricting Commission.
(c) Notice of all Commission meetings other than emergency meetings shall be posted at least seven (7) days before the meeting in the office of the Clerk of the Supreme Court. A notice of a Commission meeting shall state the date, time, and specific location of the meeting.
(d) A quorum for a Commission meeting shall be a majority plus one of the Commissioners in office at the time of the meeting. The Commission may act on any matter other than the decision to hold a meeting in executive session by majority vote of the Commissioners voting on the matter.
(e) Members of the public may comment orally at any Commission meeting at which applicants are to be considered. The Chair shall allocate equal time for relevant comment on each applicant under consideration. The Chair may terminate comments that exceed the time allocated or are irrelevant to the qualifications of applicants. The Chair may also limit duplicative comments regarding an applicant.
(f) The Commission shall hold an executive session upon a two-thirds vote of the Commissioners in attendance in order to promote open and frank discussion of applicant qualifications or to conduct a portion of an interview. To encourage frank discussion, the substance of deliberations in executive session shall not be disclosed by a Commissioner.
