Various boards; membership and terms. Reduces the number of nonlegislative citizen members who serve on the Virginia Geographic Information Network Advisory Board from nine to seven by eliminating the position for an elected official who serves on a planning district commission and eliminating one of the two current representatives of a utility or transportation industry utilizing geographic data. The bill specifies that vacancies on the Litter Control and Recycling Fund Advisory Board that occur other than by expiration of term are to be filled for the unexpired term and that no person is eligible to serve on the Advisory Board for more than two terms. The bill also changes the composition of the Board of Medicine by removing the requirement that one member be from each congressional district and replaces those 11 members with five members from as diverse geographic regions as practicable and six specific practice area members: two obstetrician-gynecologists, one cardiologist, one general surgeon, one internal medicine physician, and one radiologist. In addition, the bill includes the new specific practice area members in the nomination process for new members. Finally, the bill changes the composition of the Advisory Board on Athletic Training by removing the requirement that one of the three members who are required to be athletic trainers be an athletic trainer at a secondary school.
