Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
The Illinois Municipal Code is amended by adding
Section 3.1-10-17 as follows:

(a) The imposition of term limits by referendum, ordinance,
or otherwise must be prospective. Elective office held prior to
the effective date of any term limit imposed by a municipality
shall not prohibit a person otherwise eligible from running for
or holding elective office in that municipality. Term limits

to the enactment of the term limits.
(b) The imposition of term limits by referendum, ordinance,
or otherwise shall only apply to terms for the same office or

manner inconsistent with this subsection are invalid as they
apply to service in other categories of municipal offices.
(c) A home rule unit may not regulate term limits in a
manner inconsistent with this Section. This Section is a
limitation under subsection (i) of Section 6 of Article VII of
