Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Fire Protection District Act. Provides that the voters of the entire fire protection district may vote on whether a territory of that district may be disconnected and transferred to another district (rather than just the voters of the territory sought to be transferred). Effective immediately.
Governor Amendatory Veto Message Recommends adding an amendment to the Local Government Reduction and Efficiency Division of the Counties Code providing that the powers and authorities provided by that Division apply to all counties in the State and units of local government within those counties (rather than only to counties with a population of more than 900,000 and less than 3,000,000 that are contiguous to a county with a population of more than 3,000,000 and units of local government within those counties). (Adds reference to: 55 ILCS 5/5-44010)
