Company, in which the State has the legal

power to appoint Directors, which said

Directors shall represent the State in all

meetings of the Stockholders of the respec-

tive Companies for which they are ap-

pointed or elected. They shall require the

Directors of all said Public Works to guard

the public interest, and prevent the estab-

lishment of tolls which shall discriminate

against the interest of the citizens or

products of this State, and from time to

time, and as often as there shall be any

change in the rates of toll on any of the said

Works, to furnish the said Board of Public

Works a schedule of such modified rates

of toll, and so adjust them as to promote

the agricultural interests of the State; they

shall report to the General Assembly at

each regular session, and recommend such

legislation as they may deem necessary and

requisite to promote or protect the interests

of the State in the said Public Works; they

shall perform such other duties as may be

hereafter prescribed by Law, and a majority

of them shall be competent to act. The

Governor, Comptroller and Treasurer shall

rendered by them as members of the Board

Sec. 3. The Board of Public Works is

hereby authorized, subject to such regula-

tions and conditions as the General As-

sembly may from time to time prescribe,

to sell the State's interest in all works of

Internal Improvement, whether as a stock-

holder or a creditor, and also the State's

interest in any banking corporation, re-

ceiving in payment the bonds and regis-

tered debt now owing by the State, equal

in amount to the price obtained for the

State's said interest.

Section 4.26. Structure of the Executive


All functions, powers, and duties of the of-

fices, agencies, and instrumentalities of the

executive branch shall be allocated according

to major purposes among and within not

more than twenty principal departments.

The maximum number of principal depart-

ments may be increased by the General As-

sembly by law enacted by the affirmative vote

of three-fifths of all members of each house.

Any agency or commission which is a regula-

tory, quasi-judicial, or temporary agency es-

tablished by law may, but need not, be allo-

cated within a principal department.
