Provides that in a county having a population of less than 3,000,000 in which there is created a County Veterans Assistance Commission, the county shall levy for assistance to military veterans and their families a tax of an amount which, when added to the unobligated balance available for such purpose at the close of the preceding fiscal year will equal .02% of the last known assessed value of the taxable property in the county. Requires County Veterans Assistance Commissions to be in charge of the administration of general assistance benefits and other public aid benefits provided under the Illinois Public Aid Code for military veterans and their families.

Provides that it shall be the duty of the commander, quartermaster, or commandant (rather than the commander) of each veteran service organization to send the commander, quartermaster, or commandant (rather than the commander) of every other organization a written list of the names of all persons to whom assistance has been granted during the preceding month. Provides that in a county having 2 or more veteran service organizations, the Veterans Assistance Commission of such county may (rather than shall) act as the central service office for all veterans and their families and for the families of deceased veterans.
