Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Township Code. Provides that upon petition of at least 10% of the registered voters of a township, the county board shall certify and cause to be submitted to the voters of the county, at the next election, a proposition to discontinue and abolish that township's township organization and to transfer all the rights, powers, duties, assets, property, liabilities, obligations, and responsibilities of the township organization to the county. Provides that if a majority of the votes of the county cast are in favor of the proposition to discontinue and abolish the township organization, then the township organization in that township shall cease, and all the rights, powers, duties, assets, property, liabilities, obligations, and responsibilities of the township shall by operation of law vest in and be assumed by the county board, or county department or officer designated by the county board. Provides that the township officers of any township that is discontinued shall continue as officers of that township until the expiration of the respective terms for which they were elected or appointed. Amends the Property Tax Code, the Public Health District Act, the Illinois Public Aid Code, and the Illinois Highway Code to provide that, for a township organization that has been discontinued and has had its duties, powers, and responsibilities transferred to the county, the county board, or county department or officer designated by the county board, shall assume the duties of the township organization or officer of the township organization, as appropriate, exercised under those Acts. Effective immediately.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
35 ILCS 200/3-85 new
Adds reference to:
35 ILCS 200/3-70 new

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with changes. Deletes references to a "county" and "county board" and replaces them with "coterminous municipality" and "city council". Limits the provisions of the Article to townships within a coterminous, or substantially coterminous, municipality in which the city council exercises the powers and duties of the township board, or in which one or more municipal officials serve as an officer or trustee of the township. Provides that upon adoption of an ordinance by the city council of a township or upon petition of at least 10% of the registered voters of that township, the city council shall certify and cause to be submitted to the voters of the township, at the next election or consolidated election (rather than just the next election), a proposition to discontinue and abolish the township organization and to transfer all the rights, powers, duties, assets, property, liabilities, obligations, and responsibilities of the township organization to the coterminous municipality. Adjusts references within the Property Tax Code, the Public Health District Act, the Illinois Public Aid Code, and the Illinois Highway Code to reflect these changes. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of Senate Amendment No. 1 with changes. Provides that the amendatory Act shall apply only to a township that: (1) is within a coterminous, or substantially coterminous, municipality in which the city council exercises the powers and duties of the township board, or in which one or more municipal officials serve as an officer or trustee of the township; (2) is located within a county with a population of 3 million or more; and (3) contains a territory of 7 square miles or more. Effective immediately.
