The bill amends sections 24-15-10 and 24-15-10.1 of the General Laws in Chapter 24-15, entitled "Scenic Highways," to modify the composition of the scenic roadways board within the executive department. The number of board members is reduced from eleven to nine. The bill specifies the roles of the members, including the director of the department of transportation or their designee, the director of the department of environmental management or their designee, the chair of the historic preservation commission, and other members appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the senate. The appointments should consider geographical diversity and communities with designated scenic roadways. The bill also updates the language to be more inclusive by changing "his or her" to "the director's."

Additionally, the bill outlines the procedures for electing a chair and vice-chair, establishing that five members shall constitute a quorum, and clarifies the conditions for member removal. Members can only be removed by the governor for cause, and removal for partisan or personal reasons unrelated to capacity or fitness for the office is deemed unlawful. The bill states that the act would take effect upon passage and explains that the purpose of the act is to reduce the number of members on the scenic roadways board from eleven to nine.
