Illinois Legislature Adjourns Until Veto Session
The Illinois Legislature adjourned Saturday, May 27 until their scheduled veto session beginning October 24.
Lawmakers passed House Bill 2079, which allows a township officer to hold a position on the board of a not-for-profit corporation interested in a contract, work, or business of the township if the township officer is appointed by the governing body to represent township interests.
The township officer may actively vote on matters involving either the board or the township if the membership on the not-for-profit board is not a paid position.
If the township officer is not appointed by the governing body, the officer may continue to serve but must abstain from voting on a proposition before the township governing body directly involving the not-for-profit corporation.
If Gov. Pritzker signs the bill, it will become effective January 1, 2024.
