 3    represented in the General Assembly:

 4        Section 5.  The Fire Protection District Act  is  amended
 5    by changing Section 1.01 as follows:

 6        (70 ILCS 705/1.01) (from Ch. 127 1/2, par. 21a)
 7        Sec.  1.01.   Election  against  organization.  Where  an
 8    election  has  been  held to organize any territory as a Fire
 9    Protection District under  this  Act,  at  which  election  a
10    majority  of  the  votes cast in the territory proposed to be
11    organized was against the organization of a  Fire  Protection
12    District, or in case a city, village, or incorporated town is
13    in  the  territory  sought  to  be  organized,  then  if  the
14    proposition  failed  to  receive a majority of the votes cast
15    either in the such city, village or incorporated town  or  in
16    the   territory   outside  of  the  such  city,  village,  or
17    incorporated town, then no subsequent election shall be  held
18    to  organize  the such territory, or any part thereof, into a
19    Fire Protection District for a period of one year  after  the
20    such election.
