House Committee Amendment No. 1
In the provisions adding eligibility requirements to be a library trustee in the Illinois Local Library Act, excludes: (1) nominees or trustees of the Chicago Public Library; and (2) library trustees currently serving on the effective date of the amendatory Act until the library trustee files nomination papers or a declaration of intent to become a write-in candidate or is presented for reappointment. In provisions regarding nomination of candidates in the Public Library District Act of 1991, provides that a person is not eligible to become a candidate for (rather than be elected) under specified circumstances. Provides that a person must be continuously reside in the library district at least one year preceding the day he or she executes a statement of candidacy (rather than has resided in the library district at least one year at the time he or she files nomination papers). Provides that a person is not eligible to serve who, at the time of his or her execution of a statement of candidacy (rather than filing of nomination papers), is in arrears in the payment of a tax or other indebtedness due to the library district or has been convicted of specified crimes. Removes language regarding applicability of changes to nomination of candidates made in the 100th General Assembly.
