California Code, Public Utilities Code - PUC CA PUB UTIL § 130051

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority consists of 14 members, as follows:

(a) Five members of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.

If the number of members of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is increased, the authority shall, within 60 days of the increase, submit a plan to the Legislature for revising the composition of the authority.

(b) The Mayor of the City of Los Angeles.

(c) Two public members and one member of the City Council of the City of Los Angeles appointed by the Mayor of the City of Los Angeles.

(d) Four members, each of whom shall be a mayor or a member of a city council, appointed by the Los Angeles County City Selection Committee.  For purposes of the selection of these four members, the County of Los Angeles, excluding the City of Los Angeles, shall be divided into the following four sectors:

(1) The North County/San Fernando Valley sector.

(2) The Southwest Corridor sector.

(3) The San Gabriel Valley sector.

(4) The Southeast Long Beach sector.

The League of California Cities, Los Angeles County Division, shall define the sectors.  Every city within a sector shall be entitled to vote to nominate one or more candidates from that sector for consideration for appointment by the Los Angeles County City Selection Committee.  A city's vote shall be weighted in the same proportion that its population bears to the total population of all cities within the sector.

The members appointed pursuant to this subdivision shall be appointed by the Los Angeles County City Selection Committee upon an affirmative vote of its members which represent a majority of the population of all cities within the county, excluding the City of Los Angeles.

The members selected by the city selection committee shall serve four-year terms with no limitation on the number of terms that may be served by any individual.  The city selection committee may shorten the initial four-year term for one or more of the members for the purpose of ensuring that the members will serve staggered terms.

(e) If the population of the City of Los Angeles, at any time, becomes less than 35 percent of the combined population of all cities in the county, the position of one of the two public members appointed pursuant to subdivision (c), as determined by the Mayor of the City of Los Angeles by lot, shall be vacated, and the vacant position shall be filled by appointment by the city selection committee pursuant to subdivision (d) from a city not represented by any other member appointed pursuant to subdivision (d).

(f) One nonvoting member appointed by the Governor.
