Enacts GS 120-25, requiring that legislative appointees be removed from office by the Governor for misfeasance, malfeasance, or nonfeasance, upon recommendation of the Speaker or President Pro Tempore, respective to the initial appointment recommendation, within 30 days after receipt of the recommendation of removal.

Amends GS 143-157.1, concerning reports on gender-proportionate appointments. Now requires annual reporting by September 1 to the Secretary of State by appointing authority of every public body whose membership is composed in whole or in part of appointees by a State or local appointing authority, disclosing specified information related to appointments and appointees' gender as previously specified (previously distinguished reports for statutorily created public bodies; required the Secretary to provide copies of the names of all State bodies that an appointing authority must report on to the Governor, Speaker, and President Pro Tempore). Specifies that public body applies to any entity designated as a nonadvisory board by the State Ethics Commission under Subchapter II of GS Chapter 153A. Removes the Community College Board of Trustees from the public bodies to which the clerk of the appointing authority must submit a report on behalf of the body to the Secretary of State. Makes further clarifying and organizational changes.
