(50 ILCS 105/3.2) (from Ch. 102, par. 3.2)
    Sec. 3.2. Pecuniary interest allowed in contracts of deposit and financial service with local banks and savings and loan associations. Nothing contained in this Act, including the restrictions set forth in subsections (b), (c), and (d) of Section 3, shall preclude a contract of deposit of monies, loans, or other financial services by a unit of local government, school district, community college district, State university, or a police or firefighter's pension fund established under Article 3 or 4 of the Illinois Pension Code with a local bank or local savings and loan association, regardless of whether a member or members of the governing body of the unit (including any director serving on a hospital district board as provided under subsection (a-5) of Section 13 of the Hospital District Law) are interested in the bank or savings and loan association as a director, an officer, employee, or holder of less than 7 1/2% of the total ownership interest. A member or members holding such an interest in such a contract shall not be deemed to be holding a prohibited interest for purposes of this Act. The interested member or members of the governing body must publicly state the nature and extent of their interest during deliberations concerning the proposed award of such a contract, but shall not participate in any further deliberations concerning the proposed award. The interested member or members shall not vote on such a proposed award. Any member or members abstaining from participation in deliberations and voting under this Section may be considered present for purposes of establishing a quorum. Award of such a contract shall require approval by a majority vote of those members presently holding office. Consideration and award of any such contract in which a member or members are interested may only be made at a regularly scheduled public meeting of the governing body of the unit or district.
