    AN ACT concerning local government.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Counties Code is amended by changing Section
2-6008 as follows:
    (55 ILCS 5/2-6008)  (from Ch. 34, par. 2-6008)
    Sec. 2-6008. Approval of ordinances. All ordinances,
resolutions or motions shall be submitted to said board of
commissioners in writing, or reduced to writing before any vote
shall be taken thereon; and if adopted by the board, the same
shall not take effect until after the same shall have been
approved in writing by the president of said board, except as
hereinafter provided. It shall be the duty of the clerk of said
board to deliver to the president thereof, upon his request,
the original (or a copy) of each ordinance, resolution or
motion, so passed or adopted by said board as aforesaid, within
one day after its passage or adoption; and in case the
president approves thereof, he shall sign the same, and it
shall thereupon be in full force and effect. In case the
president shall not approve any such ordinance, resolution or
motion, he shall, within five days after the receipt of the
same as aforesaid, return it to the clerk of said board, with
his objections thereto in writing. Such veto by the president
may extend to any one or more items or appropriations contained
in any resolution making an appropriation, or to the entire
resolution; and in case the veto only extends to a part of such
resolution making an appropriation, the residue thereof not
embraced within the veto shall take effect and be in force from
the time of the receipt by said clerk of such veto of such
part. Upon the return of any such ordinance, resolution or
motion by the president, with his objections thereto as
aforesaid, the vote by which the same was passed shall be
reconsidered by the board of commissioners as to so much
thereof as may have been vetoed; and if, after such
reconsideration, three-fifths four-fifths of all the members
elected to the board shall agree to pass the same by yeas and
nays, to be entered on the journal, the same shall take effect,
notwithstanding the president may have refused to approve
thereof. In case the president shall fail or omit to either
sign and approve or return, with his objections as aforesaid,
any such ordinance, motion or resolution which shall have been
passed or adopted by the board within six days after it shall
have been so passed or adopted, the same shall take effect
without the approval of the president.
