“(b) If a legislative branch representative has not been appointed and is not serving on such council on June 30, 2018, then this Act shall become effective on July 1, 2018.” A legislative branch representative had not been appointed and was not serving on such council on June 30, 2018, so the Act became effective on July 1, 2018.
