Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Governmental Ethics Act, the Election Code, the University of Illinois Act, and the University of Illinois Trustees Act. Provides for a Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois consisting of 7 elected members (now, the Board consists of 9 members appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate), the Governor, and 3 student trustees. Provides that 3 members shall be elected from the First Judicial District and one member shall be elected from each of the 4 other judicial districts. Terminates the term of each appointed member of the Board when all of the new elected members take office. Provides for staggered terms for members initially elected under the amendatory Act and 6-year terms thereafter. Provides that the student trustees shall select one of their number to possess the right to cast a legally binding vote (now, the Governor designates which one of the student trustees possess the right to vote). Provides that if a student trustee has served more than one term and during one of those terms, he or she was selected to possess a legally binding vote, then he or she is ineligible to be selected again to possess a legally binding vote. Provides that if the student trustees fail to come to an agreement on which student trustee shall possess a legally binding vote, none of the student trustees may possess a legally binding vote for the remainder of their term. Makes related changes. Effective immediately.
