    8         effective date.
   10  Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
   12         Section 1. Section 20.32, Florida Statutes, is amended to
   13  read:
   14         20.32 Parole Commission.—
   15         (1) The Parole and Probation Commission, authorized by s.
   16  8(c), Art. IV, State Constitution of 1968, is continued and
   17  renamed the Florida Offender Review and Transition Parole
   18  Commission. The commission retains its powers, duties, and
   19  functions with respect to the granting and revoking of parole
   20  and shall exercise powers, duties, and functions relating to
   21  investigations of applications for clemency as directed by the
   22  Governor and the Cabinet.
   23         (2) All powers, duties, and functions relating to the
   24  appointment of the Parole Commission as provided in s. 947.02 or
   25  s. 947.021 shall be exercised and performed by the Governor and
   26  the Cabinet. Except as provided in s. 947.021, each appointment
   27  shall be made from among the first three eligible persons on the
   28  list of the persons eligible for said position.
   29         (3) The commission may require any employee of the
   30  commission to give a bond for the faithful performance of his or
   31  her duties. The commission may determine the amount of the bond
   32  and must approve the bond. In determining the amount of the
   33  bond, the commission may consider the amount of money or
   34  property likely to be in custody of the officer or employee at
   35  any one time. The premiums for the bonds must be paid out of the
   36  funds of the commission.
   37         Section 2. The Legislature recognizes that there is a need
   38  to amend the Florida Statutes to reflect the change in the name
   39  of the Parole Commission and that there may be a need to resolve
   40  apparent conflicts between other legislation that has been or
   41  may be enacted during 2010. Therefore, in the interim between
   42  July 1, 2010, and the 2011 Regular Session of the Legislature,
   43  the Division of Statutory Revision shall provide the relevant
   44  substantive committees of the Senate and the House of
   45  Representatives with assistance, upon request, to enable such
   46  committees to prepare draft legislation to conform the Florida
   47  Statutes and any legislation enacted during 2010 to the
   48  provisions of this act.
   49         Section 3. This act shall take effect July 1, 2010.
