    Sec. 5. Conflicts of Interest. Members or employees of authority - conflicting relations or interests - effects.
    (a) No member of the Authority or officer, agent or employee thereof other than the representatives of a professional sports team shall, in his or her own name or in the name of a nominee, be an officer, director or hold an ownership interest of more than 7-1/2% in any person, association, trust, corporation, partnership or other entity which is, in its own name or in the name of a nominee, a party to a contract or agreement upon which the member or officer, agent or employee may be called upon to act or vote.
    (b) With respect to any direct or any indirect interest, other than an interest prohibited in subsection (a), in a contract or agreement upon which the member or officer, agent or employee may be called upon to act or vote, a member of the Authority or officer, agent or employee thereof shall disclose the same to the secretary of the Authority prior to the taking of final action by the Authority concerning such contract or agreement and shall so disclose the nature and extent of such interest and his or her acquisition thereof, which disclosures shall be publicly acknowledged by the Authority and entered upon the minutes of the Authority. If a member of the Authority or officer, agent or employee thereof holds such an interest then he or she shall refrain from any further official involvement in regard to such contract or agreement, from voting on any matter pertaining to such contract or agreement, and from communicating with other members of the Authority or its officers, agents and employees concerning said contract or agreement. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any contract or agreement entered into in conformity with this subsection (b) shall not be void or invalid by reason of the interest described in this subsection, nor shall any person so disclosing the interest and refraining from further official involvement as provided in this subsection be guilty of an offense, be removed from office or be subject to any other penalty on account of such interest.
    (c) Any contract or agreement made in violation of subsection (a) or (b) of this Section shall be null and void and give rise to no action against the Authority. No real estate to which a member or employee of the Authority holds legal title or in which such person has any beneficial interest, including any interest in a land trust, shall be purchased by the Authority or by a nonprofit corporation or limited-profit entity for a development to be financed under this Act. All members and employees of the Authority shall file annually with the Authority a record of all real estate in this State of which such person holds legal title or in which such person has any beneficial interest, including any interest in a land trust. In the event it is later disclosed that the Authority has purchased real estate in which a member or employee had an interest, such purchase shall be voidable by the Authority and the member or employee involved shall be disqualified from membership in or employment by the Authority.
