     3  follows:
     4    1. There shall be in the department of public service a public service
     5  commission, which shall possess the powers and duties hereinafter speci-
     6  fied,  and also all powers necessary or proper to enable it to carry out
     7  the purposes of this chapter.  The  commission  shall  consist  of  five
     8  members,  to  be  appointed  by the governor, by and with the advice and
     9  consent of the senate. A commissioner shall be designated as chairman of
    10  the commission by the governor to serve in such capacity at the pleasure

    12  first occurs. At least one commissioner shall have experience in utility
    13  consumer  advocacy.  No  more than three commissioners may be members of

    16  and in such event no more than four commissioners may be members of  the
    17  same political party.

    19  have become a law and shall apply to appointments made on or after  such
    20  date.
