Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Guardianship and Advocacy Act. Provides that Guardianship and Advocacy Commission, acting on a request from the Director of the Guardianship and Advocacy Commission, may disapprove any action of a regional authority, in which case the regional authority shall cease such action. Provides that the Commission shall operate subject to the provisions of the Illinois Procurement Code (instead of the Illinois Purchasing Act). Provides that the Director shall carry out the policies and programs of the Commission and coordinate the activities of its divisions and may delegate to the Human Rights Authority Director any specified duties. Transfers the authority of certain appointment duties from the Commission to the Director. Provides that reassignments of investigations for conflicts of interest and refusals to investigate shall be reviewed and approved by the Director and the Director may seek direction from the Commission. Provides that a regional authority may conduct investigations upon its own initiative if it has reason to believe that the rights of an eligible person have been violated in the region in which the authority sits, unless the Director (rather than Commission) finds that a conflict of interest exists and directs another regional authority to conduct the investigation. Provides that closed meetings by a regional authority are subject to the provisions of the Open Meetings Act. Transfers the authority for referrals for further action from the Commission to the Director. Provides that a regional authority may, by acting through the Director, propose to the Commission legislation for the purpose of safeguarding the rights of eligible persons.
