(from Ch. 23, par. 2-14)
"Local governmental unit".
Every county, city, village,
incorporated town or township charged with the duty of providing public
aid under Article VI; and County Veterans Assistance Commissions
providing general assistance to indigent war veterans and their families
under Section 12-21.13 of Article XII.
However, should any Section of this Code impose the obligation of
providing medical assistance to persons who are non-residents of the
State of Illinois upon a local governmental unit, the term "local
governmental unit" shall not include townships. In such case the
obligation for providing medical assistance to non-residents which would
otherwise be the duty of a township shall become the obligation of the
Department of Healthcare and Family Services.
