Maine Revised Statutes

§12012. Members from other branches of government

Persons who serve in any branch of State Government may serve on a board that is solely advisory in authority. A person who serves in a branch of State Government may serve on a board of another branch of State Government as a nonvoting member in an advisory capacity only if that board is not solely advisory in authority. A person who serves in a branch of State Government may serve on any board that is solely advisory in authority, unless specifically prohibited by another provision of law. [1985, c. 295, §23 (AMD).]

A board is solely advisory in authority if its only authority is to review policies and procedures, conduct studies or advise or make recommendations to a branch of government. It may not have the authority to control expenditures, issue rules, approve decisions of other agencies or officials or enforce its decisions or recommendations. [1983, c. 814, (NEW).]
