 member shall be appointed by the minority  leader  of  the  senate,  one
 member  shall  be  appointed by the minority leader of the assembly, and
 six members shall be appointed by the governor and the lieutenant gover-

 as  the member that vacated that position. Prior to making their respec-
 tive appointments, the governor and  the  lieutenant  governor  and  the
 legislative  leaders  shall  solicit  and  receive  recommendations  for
 appointees from the attorney general and the comptroller of the state of
