(605 ILCS 10/4) (from Ch. 121, par. 100-4)
    Sec. 4. Of the directors appointed by the Governor, one such director shall be appointed by the Governor as chairman and shall hold office for 4 years from the date of his appointment, and until his successor shall be duly appointed and qualified, but shall be subject to removal by the Governor for incompetency, neglect of duty or malfeasance.
    The chairman shall preside at all meetings of the Board of Directors of the Authority; shall exercise general supervision over all powers, duties, obligations and functions of the Authority; and shall approve or disapprove all resolutions, by-laws, rules, rates and regulations made and established by the Board of Directors, and if he shall approve thereof, he shall sign the same, and such as he shall not approve he shall return to the Board of Directors with his objections thereto in writing at the next regular meeting of the Board of Directors occurring after the passage thereof. Such veto may extend to any one or more items contained in such resolution, by-law, rule, rate or regulation, or to its entirety; and in case the veto extends to a part of such resolution, by-law, rule, rate or regulation, the residue thereof shall take effect and be in force, but in case the chairman shall fail to return any resolution, by-law, rule, rate or regulation with his objections thereto by the time aforesaid, he shall be deemed to have approved the same, and the same shall take effect accordingly. Upon the return of any resolution, by-law, rule, rate or regulation by the chairman, the vote by which the same was passed shall be reconsidered by the Board of Directors, and if upon such reconsideration two-thirds of all the Directors agree by yeas and nays to pass the same, it shall go into effect notwithstanding the chairman's refusal to approve thereof.
    The chairman shall receive a salary of $18,000 per annum, or as set by the Compensation Review Board, whichever is greater, payable in monthly installments, together with reimbursement for necessary expenses incurred in the performance of his duties. The chairman shall be eligible for reappointment.
