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.

605 ILCS 10/4

    (605 ILCS 10/4) (from Ch. 121, par. 100-4)
    Sec. 4. Of the directors appointed by the Governor, one such director shall be appointed by the Governor as chairman and shall hold office for 4 years from the date of his appointment, and until his successor shall be duly appointed and qualified, but shall be subject to removal by the Governor for incompetency, neglect of duty or malfeasance. The term of the initial chairman appointed under this amendatory Act of the 100th General Assembly shall end March 1, 2021 and the chairman shall serve until his or her successor is duly appointed and qualified.
    The chairman shall preside at all meetings of the Board of Directors of the Authority; shall exercise general supervision over all powers, duties, obligations and functions of the Authority; and shall approve or disapprove all resolutions, by-laws, rules, rates and regulations made and established by the Board of Directors, and if he shall approve thereof, he shall sign the same, and such as he shall not approve he shall return to the Board of Directors with his objections thereto in writing at the next regular meeting of the Board of Directors occurring after the passage thereof. Such veto may extend to any one or more items contained in such resolution, by-law, rule, rate or regulation, or to its entirety; and in case the veto extends to a part of such resolution, by-law, rule, rate or regulation, the residue thereof shall take effect and be in force, but in case the chairman shall fail to return any resolution, by-law, rule, rate or regulation with his objections thereto by the time aforesaid, he shall be deemed to have approved the same, and the same shall take effect accordingly. Upon the return of any resolution, by-law, rule, rate or regulation by the chairman, the vote by which the same was passed shall be reconsidered by the Board of Directors, and if upon such reconsideration two-thirds of all the Directors agree by yeas and nays to pass the same, it shall go into effect notwithstanding the chairman's refusal to approve thereof. The process of approving or disapproving all resolutions, by-laws, rules, rates and regulations, as well as the ability of the Board of Directors to override the disapproval of the chairman, under this Section shall be set forth in the Authority's by-laws. Nothing in the Authority's by-laws, rules, or regulations may be contrary to this Section.
    The chairman shall receive a salary of $18,000 per annum, or as set by the Compensation Review Board, whichever is greater, payable in monthly installments, together with reimbursement for necessary expenses incurred in the performance of his duties. The chairman shall be eligible for reappointment.
