special commission


special commission
An administrative agency for a special purpose. Wilson v Philadelphia School Dist. 328 Pa 225, 195 A 90, 113 ALR 1401. As the term was used in a constitutional prohibition against a legislative delegation of municipal functions to any "special commission," the object of the provision was held to be to prevent the state legislature from interfering with local governments by the appointment "of its own special commissions for the control of purely local matters." And it was held also that the aggregate body of qualified electors could not be regarded as a "special commission" within the meaning of the prohibition. Ex parte Pfahler, 150 Cal 71, 88 P 270.
