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.

405 ILCS 20/3a

    (405 ILCS 20/3a) (from Ch. 91 1/2, par. 303a)
    Sec. 3a. Every governmental unit authorized to levy an annual tax under any of the provisions of this Act shall, before it may levy such tax, establish a 7 member community mental health board who shall administer this Act. Such board shall be appointed by the chairman of the governing body of a county, the mayor of a city, the president of a village, the president of an incorporated town, or the supervisor of a township, as the case may be, with the advice and consent of the governing body of such county, city, village, incorporated town or the town board of trustees of any township. Members of the community mental health board shall be residents of the government unit and, as nearly as possible, be representative of interested groups of the community such as local health departments, medical societies, local comprehensive health planning agencies, hospital boards, lay associations concerned with mental health, developmental disabilities and substance abuse, as well as the general public. Only one member shall be a member of the governing body, with the term of membership on the board to run concurrently with the elected term of the member. The chairman of the governing body may, upon the request of the community mental health board, appoint 2 additional members to the community mental health board. No member of the community mental health board may be a full-time or part-time employee of the Department of Human Services or a board member, employee or any other individual receiving compensation from any facility or service operating under contract to the board. If a successful referendum is held under Section 5 of this Act, all members of such board shall be appointed within 60 days after the local election authority certifies the passage of the referendum. If a community mental health board has been established by a county with a population of less than 500,000 and the community mental health board is funded in whole or in part by a special mental health sales tax described in paragraph (4) of subsection (a) of Section 5-1006.5 of the Counties Code, the largest municipality in the county with at least 125,000 residents may appoint 2 additional members to the board. The members shall be appointed by the mayor of the municipality with the advice and consent of the municipality's governing body.
    Home rule units are exempt from this Act. However, they may, by ordinance, adopt the provisions of this Act, or any portion thereof, that they may deem advisable.
    The tax rate set forth in Section 4 may be levied by any non-home rule unit only pursuant to the approval by the voters at a referendum. Such referendum may have been held at any time subsequent to the effective date of the Community Mental Health Act.
