Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Township Code. Provides that if a vacant township supervisor office is filled by appointment, the appointed supervisor shall fulfill the bond requirement for township supervisors. Provides that the appointed supervisor may be a trustee appointed by a majority vote of the trustees and shall have one vote on any matter properly before the board. Provides for the appointment of a temporary deputy to perform the ministerial functions of a vacant township office until a person can be appointed to fill the vacant position for the remainder of the vacant term (rather than only allowing the appointment of a temporary deputy in a vacant township office due to a physical incapacity of a township officer). Provides that the temporary deputy, including a trustee appointed as a temporary deputy, shall be compensated at the same rate set by the board for the vacant position. Provides that if the appointed deputy is a trustee, his or her trustee compensation shall be suspended until he or she concludes his or her appointment as an appointed deputy upon the permanent appointment to fill the vacancy. Exempts the temporary deputy from the requirement to fill a vacant township office with a member of the same political party. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that whenever any township or multi-township office becomes vacant or temporarily vacant due to the physical incapacity of a township officer, the township or multi-township board may temporarily appoint a deputy to perform the ministerial functions of the vacant office. Restores provisions allowing the physically incapacitated township officer to submit a written and sworn statement that he or she is physically able to perform his or her duty. Restores a provision allowing the appropriate board to determine the temporary deputy compensation (removing a new provision providing that the temporary deputy's compensation shall be the same as the compensation set by the board for the vacant position).

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Excludes appointments in townships in a county with a population greater than 250,000 from provisions requiring appointees to a vacancy to be a member of the same political party as the person vacating the office if the person vacating the office was elected as a member of an established political party.
