SCS/SB 650 - This act specifies that the term of Office of the Governors of Missouri State University shall be six years. The voting members of the board of governors serving on August 28, 2005, shall serve until the expiration of the terms for which they were appointed. For those voting members appointed after August 28, 2005, the term of office will be established in a manner where no more than three terms shall expire in a given year.

If a voting member of the Board of Governors of Missouri State University is found by unanimous vote of the other governors to have moved such governor's residence from the district from which such governor was appointed, then the office of such governor shall be vacant.

Should the total number of Missouri congressional districts be altered, all members of the board shall be allowed to serve the remainder of the term for which they were appointed. Should the boundaries of any congressional districts be altered in a manner that displaces a member of the board from the congressional district from which the member was appointed, the member shall be allowed to serve the remainder of the term for which the member was appointed.

The act renders other technical alterations by removing the "Southwest" from Missouri State University in certain sections omitted from the name change bill last session.

This act contains an emergency clause.
