Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Local Government Reduction and Efficiency Division of the Counties Code. Extends the applicability provision of the Division to all counties within the State (rather than only DuPage County). Adds provisions concerning the rights of employees of a former unit of local government after it has been dissolved into the governmental unit assuming the functions of the former unit of local government. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that the status and rights of employees represented by an exclusive bargaining representative, and the rights of employees under any existing pension, retirement, or annuity plan, are not affected by consolidation or this amendatory Act. Further provides for obligations assumed by unit of local government assuming the functions of the former governmental unit. Deletes language in the introduced bill concerning exercising the rights and responsibility of the former unit of local government and the status and rights of the employees of the former unit of local government.

House Committee Amendment No. 3
Removes a provision making the Division applicable to all counties. Provides that the Division is applicable to McHenry County and DuPage County.

House Floor Amendment No. 6
Deletes reference to:
55 ILCS 5/5-44060 new

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Counties Code. Provides that the Division concerning local government consolidation applies to McHenry County, Lake County, and DuPage County (currently, only counties with a population of more than 900,000 and less than 3,000,000 that are contiguous to a county with a population of more than 3,000,000). Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 3
Adds reference to:
55 ILCS 5/5-44020

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the engrossed bill. Further amends the Local Government Reduction and Efficiency Division of the Counties Code by providing that a conservation district organized under the Conservation District Act is not a unit of local government under the Division.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 4 (Senate recedes May 31, 2016)
Further amends the definition of "unit of local government" or "unit" in the Local Government Reduction and Efficiency Division of the Counties Code by providing that a community mental health board organized under the Community Mental Health Act is not a unit of local government under the Division.
