Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Municipal Code. Provides that, in a municipality with a population over 2,000,000, a person is not eligible to take the oath of office for the office of mayor unless the person has completed discrimination and sensitivity training before the election day at which the person would be elected, but the training must be completed no earlier than one year before the election day. Provides that the training shall be taken though the municipality's legal department, or, if the municipality's legal department does not offer discrimination and sensitivity training, as the municipality shall otherwise provide for mayoral candidates. Amends the Revised Cities and Villages Act of 1941 including similar provisions relating to a requirement that an acting mayor shall complete discrimination and sensitivity training each year of his or her term. Additionally provides that, no later than 2 weeks after completion of the discrimination and sensitivity training, the mayor must certify in writing that the mayor has completed the training and file the certification with the Board of Ethics. Provides that the Board of Ethics may levy an administrative fine of up to $5,000 against the mayor for failure to complete the discrimination and sensitivity training. Effective immediately.
