Four members shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business, but a smaller number may adjourn. An action of the board shall require a concurring vote of a majority of the board, and shall be final, subject to the governor's veto, unless reconsidered or rescinded at a subsequent meeting of the board at which there shall be present as many members as were present when the original vote was taken.
    (2) The governor may veto an action of the board within 10 days after its passage. By a concurring vote of 5 members of the board, taken within 10 days after the exercise of a veto, the veto of the governor may be overruled.
