Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

40 ILCS 5/2-127

    (40 ILCS 5/2-127) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 2-127)
    Sec. 2-127. Board created. The system shall be administered by a board of trustees of 7 members as follows: 3 members of the Senate appointed by the President; 3 members of the House of Representatives appointed by the Speaker; and one person elected from the member annuitants under rules prescribed by the board. Only participants are eligible to serve as board members. Not more than 2 members of the House of Representatives, and not more than 2 members of the Senate so appointed shall be of the same political party. Appointed board members shall serve for 2-year terms. If the office of President of the Senate or Speaker of the House is vacant or its incumbent is not a participant, the position of trustee otherwise occupied by such officers shall be deemed vacant and be filled by appointment by the Governor with a member of the Senate or the House, as the case may be. This appointment shall be of the same political party as the vacated position.
    Elections for the annuitant member shall be held in January of 1993 and every fourth year thereafter. Nominations and elections shall be conducted in accordance with such procedures as the Board may prescribe. In the event that only one eligible person is nominated, the Board may declare the nominee elected at the close of the nomination period, and need not conduct an election. The annuitant member elected in 1989 shall serve for a term of 4 years beginning February 1, 1989; thereafter, an annuitant member shall serve for a period of 4 years from the February 1st immediately following the date of election, and until a successor is elected and qualified.
    Every person designated to serve as a trustee shall take an oath of office and shall thereupon qualify as a trustee. The oath shall state that the person will diligently and honestly administer the affairs of the system, and will not knowingly violate or wilfully permit the violation of any of the provisions of this Article.
