  This  commission  will  be  an advisory council to the commissioner with
  respect  to  administration  and  management  of  the  Stewart   airport
  facilities  and  its  surrounding  areas  with respect to projects to be

  the  initial  appointment  terms,  shall serve for a term of four years.
  However, two of the appointments must be from a list  submitted  by  the
  temporary  president  and majority leader of the senate, and two must be

  speaker of the  assembly  to  initial  two-year  and  three-year  terms,
  respectively,  and  the members nominated by the temporary president and
  majority leader of the senate to initial two-year and three-year  terms,
  respectively.  If  any  member  shall  thereafter  no  longer  meet  the
  residency requirement of his or her appointment, such position shall  be
  declared  vacant. In the event of a vacancy, the vacancy shall be filled

  shall be for the unexpired portion of the term of such members. All such
  members  shall  be  deemed  officers of the state in connection with the
  provisions of section seventeen of the public officers law. The  members
  of  the  commission  shall  appoint  a chairman from among their number.

  guidance, advice and assistance of the commission. The  Stewart  airport

  duties and functions.
