  41.220.  Military council — duties — meetings. — 1.  There shall be a military council consisting of the adjutant general as president of the council, general officers, the commanding officers of all brigades, wings, or groups, and any other officer or officers the adjutant general may deem desirable or necessary, and an officer appointed by the adjutant general from his office to act as recorder without vote.  The senior United States Army and United States Air Force advisors on duty with the organized state militia, the comptroller of the state military forces and the United States Property and Fiscal Officer shall be ex officio members without vote.  The adjutant general shall appoint the members of the military council on general orders annually.  These orders will be amended as necessary.  Members of the military council shall receive actual and necessary expenses for attending meetings thereof.

  2.  It shall be the duty of this council to act in an advisory capacity to the commander in chief on all matters placed before it by the governor, the adjutant general or any member of the council and to submit recommendations thereon to the governor, which shall become effective only upon his approval.  The military council shall determine and authorize the number of regular and temporary employees necessary to the administration and supply of the military forces and fix the pay and allowances of the employees within the limitations of appropriations.  It shall be the further duty of the council to make recommendations on the needs of the militia for legislative appropriations, and no request for appropriations of public money for the support of the militia, other than a request by the governor or by a member of the general assembly, shall be made without the recommendation of the council being noted thereon for the information of the governor and the legislature.  All appropriations made for military purposes shall be apportioned and expended by the council.  Vouchers and accounts covering the expenditure of funds and appropriations for the support of the militia shall be approved and paid only when fully itemized, certified and approved by the president of the council.

  3.  The council shall meet quarterly at the City of Jefferson at such time as the president shall designate.  Special meetings may be called by the governor or the president of the council at any time or place designated.  A majority of the members of the council on duty within the state shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of its business.  The council shall keep full and detailed records of its proceedings.  The president of the council in an unusual emergency is authorized to poll the members of the military council and require them to cast their vote through whatever means of communications are available to them and the action taken in that manner shall have the same force and effect as a quarterly or special meeting when the poll will expedite recommendations on and furnish advice in the conduct of the affairs of the militia of this state to a better state of preparedness.
