Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(from Ch. 23, par. 3090)
The executive powers of the commission shall be vested in a
superintendent elected by the commission from among those who served in
the armed forces of the United States. The superintendent,
designated Superintendent of Veterans Assistance of the county, shall,
under the direction of the commission, have charge of and maintain an
office in the county building or other central location, to be used solely
by the commission for carrying on its assistance work. The county shall
provide the office and furnish all necessary supplies, including telephone,
printing, stationery and postage therefor.
The county board shall, in any county where a Veterans Assistance
Commission is organized, in addition to sums appropriated for assistance and
emergency assistance purposes under this Act, appropriate such additional
sums, upon recommendation of the Veterans Assistance Commission and as
approved by the county board, to properly compensate the officers and
employees required to administer such assistance. Such county board
approval shall be based upon recognized and established salary guidelines
developed by the county and used by the county to compensate county
employees. If the county does not have established employee salary
guidelines, the county board shall provide funds to the commission to
compensate the superintendent and his employees in a just manner. The
county board shall also provide funds to the commission to reimburse the
superintendent, officers, delegates and employees for certain expenses
which are approved by the commission. The superintendent and other
employees shall be employees of the Veterans Assistance Commission, and no
provision in this Section or elsewhere in this Act shall be construed to
mean that they are employees of the county.
Superintendents, subject to rules formulated by the commission, shall select,
as far as possible, secretaries and other employees from among honorably
discharged military veterans as defined in Section 2, or their surviving
Superintendents of all counties subject to this Act, when required by the
commission, shall give bond in the sum of $2,000 for the faithful performance
of their duties.
All persons elected or selected to fill positions provided for in this
Section shall be exempt from the operation and provisions of any civil service
act or laws of this State, and the secretary of the commission shall be
appointed by the superintendent. However, if "The Illinois Public Aid Code",
as amended, becomes applicable in any county, the Department of
Human Services may exercise the powers therein designated in relation to
engaged in the administration of assistance under this Act.
