    Sec. 6. Action by commission; financial advisor; liability.
    (a) The commission may adopt and alter bylaws and rules for the conduct of its affairs, and for the manner, subject to this Act, in which its powers and functions shall be exercised and embodied.
    (b) Six members of the commission constitute a quorum of the commission. The affirmative vote of 6 members of the commission is necessary for any action taken by vote of the commission. No vacancy in the membership of the commission shall impair the rights of a quorum by such vote to exercise all the rights and perform all the duties of the commission. Members of the commission, and their designees, are not disqualified from voting by reason of the functions of the other office they hold and are not disqualified from exercising the functions of any other office with respect to the unit of local government, its officers, or the commission.
    (c) The commission may retain a financial advisor. As used in this Act, "financial advisor" means a firm of certified public accountants with demonstrated professional competence in matters relating to this Act, engaged by the commission pursuant to a written contract, a copy of which shall be provided to each member of the commission and each member of the governing body of the unit of local government.
    (d) The financial advisor, the members of the commission, or any other person authorized to act on behalf of or assist them shall not be personally liable or subject to any action, judgment, or claim for damages resulting from the exercise of or failure to exercise the powers, duties, and functions granted to them in regard to their functioning under this Act, but the commission, the financial advisor, and such other persons shall be subject to mandamus proceedings to compel performance of their duties under this Act.
    (e) At the request of the commission the administrative head of any State department or agency shall temporarily assign personnel skilled in procedures relevant to assisting the commission or the financial advisor in its duties.
    (f) Each appointed member of the commission shall file with the commission a signed written statement setting forth the general nature of sales of goods, property, or services or of loans to the unit of local government with respect to which that commission is established, in which such member has a pecuniary interest or in which any member of his immediate family, or any corporation, partnership, or enterprise of which he is an officer, director, or partner, or of which he or a member of his immediate family owns more than 7 1/2% interest, has a pecuniary interest, and of which sale, loan and interest such member has knowledge. The statement shall be supplemented from time to time to reflect changes in the general nature of any such sales or loans.
