Gov. Tom Corbett signed legislation Thursday to restructure Port Authority of Allegheny County's board of directors.

The law allows the Allegheny County executive to appoint six of 11 members to the board, down from all nine members now. The governor and legislative leaders from each of the four caucuses will appoint the remaining five members.

The new appointees will join the board in 60 days, or in mid-September.
