There is hereby created the “Missouri Real Estate Commission”, to consist of seven persons, citizens of the United States and residents of this state for at least one year prior to their appointment, for the purpose of carrying out and enforcing the provisions of sections 339.010 to 339.180 and sections 339.710 to 339.860. 1 The commission shall be appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the senate. All members, except one voting public member, of the commission must have had at least ten years' experience as a real estate broker prior to their appointment. The terms of the members of the commission shall be for five years, and until their successors are appointed and qualified. Members to fill vacancies shall be appointed by the governor for the unexpired term. The president of the Missouri Association of Realtors in office at the time shall, at least ninety days prior to the expiration of the term of the board member, other than the public member, or as soon as feasible after the vacancy on the board otherwise occurs, submit to the director of the division of professional registration a list of five realtors qualified and willing to fill the vacancy in question, with the request and recommendation that the governor appoint one of the five persons so listed, and with the list so submitted, the president of the Missouri Association of Realtors shall include in his or her letter of transmittal a description of the method by which the names were chosen by that association. The commission shall organize annually by selecting from its members a chairman. The commission may do all things necessary and convenient for carrying into effect the provisions of sections 339.010 to 339.180 and sections 339.710 to 339.860, and may promulgate necessary rules compatible with the provisions of sections 339.010 to 339.180 and sections 339.710 to 339.860. Each member of the commission shall receive as compensation an amount set by the commission not to exceed seventy-five dollars for each day devoted to the affairs of the commission, and shall be entitled to reimbursement of his or her expenses necessarily incurred in the discharge of his or her official duties. The governor may remove any commissioner for cause.
2. The public member shall be at the time of his or her appointment a citizen of the United States; a resident of this state for a period of one year and a registered voter; a person who is not and never was a member of any profession licensed or regulated pursuant to sections 339.010 to 339.180 and sections 339.710 to 339.860 or the spouse of such person; and a person who does not have and never has had a material, financial interest in either the providing of the professional services regulated by sections 339.010 to 339.180 and sections 339.710 to 339.860, or an activity or organization directly related to any profession licensed or regulated pursuant to sections 339.010 to 339.180 and sections 339.710 to 339.860. All members, including public members, shall be chosen from lists submitted by the director of the division of professional registration. The duties of the public member shall not include the determination of the technical requirements to be met for licensure or whether any person meets such technical requirements or of the technical competence or technical judgment of a licensee or a candidate for licensure.
3. The commission shall employ such board personnel, as defined in subdivision (4) of subsection 10 of section 324.001, as it shall deem necessary to discharge the duties imposed by the provisions of sections 339.010 to 339.180 and sections 339.710 to 339.860.
4. Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is created under the authority delegated in sections 339.010 to 339.180 and sections 339.710 to 339.860 shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536 and, if applicable, section 536.028. All rulemaking authority delegated prior to August 28, 1999, is of no force and effect and repealed. Nothing in this section shall be interpreted to repeal or affect the validity of any rule filed or adopted prior to August 28, 1999, if it fully complied with all applicable provisions of law. This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 1999, shall be invalid and void.
