(A) Unless renewed in accordance with division (D) of this section:
(1) An agency in existence on the first day of January in the year of the first regular
session of an odd-numbered general assembly expires at the end of the thirty-first
day of December in the year of the second regular session of that general assembly;
(2) An agency created during an even-numbered general assembly expires at the end
of the thirty-first day of December in the year of the second regular session of the
next odd-numbered general assembly; and
(3) An agency created during an odd-numbered general assembly expires at the end of
the thirty-first day of December in the year of the second regular session of the
next odd-numbered general assembly.
Any act creating or renewing an agency shall contain a distinct section providing
a specific expiration date for the agency in accordance with this division.
(B) If the general assembly does not renew or transfer an agency on or before its
expiration date, it expires on that date.
The director of budget and management shall not authorize the expenditure of any moneys
for any agency on or after the date of its expiration.
(C) The general assembly may provide by law for the orderly, efficient, and expeditious
conclusion of an agency's business and operation. The rules, orders, licenses, contracts, and other actions made, taken, granted,
or performed by the agency continue in effect according to their terms notwithstanding
the agency's abolition, unless the general assembly provides otherwise by law. The general assembly may provide by law for the temporary or permanent transfer
of some or all of a terminated or transferred agency's functions and personnel to
a successor agency or officer.
The abolition, termination, or transfer of an agency does not cause the termination
or dismissal of any claim pending against the agency by any person, or any claim pending
against any person by the agency. Unless the general assembly provides otherwise by law for the substitution of parties,
the attorney general shall succeed the agency with reference to any pending claim.
(D) An agency may be renewed by passage of a bill that continues the statutes creating
and empowering the agency, that amends or repeals those statutes, or that enacts new
statutes, to improve agency usefulness, performance, or effectiveness.
