c. An ex officio member of the authority may, from time to time, designate in writing to the authority an official within his respective department to attend and represent the department at the meetings of the authority from which the ex officio member is absent, and that designated representative shall be entitled to vote and otherwise act for the ex officio member at those meetings.

d. A true copy of the minutes of every meeting of the authority shall be forthwith delivered by and under the certification of the secretary thereof to the Governor.  No action taken at such meeting by the authority shall have force or effect until 10 days, Saturdays, Sundays, and public holidays excepted, after the copy of the minutes shall have been so delivered, unless during such 10-day period the Governor shall approve the same, in which case such action shall become effective upon such approval.  If, in that 10-day period, the Governor returns such copy of the minutes with veto of any action taken by the authority or any member thereof at such meeting, such action shall be null and void and of no effect.
