Ind. Courts - "Arizona and Indiana: changing merit selection by statute, not constitutional amendment?"

See this post from Bill Raftery of Gavel to Gavel. It begins:

I’ve noted before the sort of odd situation going on in Arizona and separately in Indiana, name state legislatures trying to alter merit selection systems established in the constitution via statue.
It then quotes extensively from this Feb. 12th ILB post on SB 103. That ILB post posits that SB 103 runs counter to the Ind. Const. by imposing additional requirements on the selection by the Governor of the citizen members of the commission, beyond those outlined in the Constitution.
