Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund Article of the Illinois Pension Code. Provides that the alternative annuity that is available to certain county officers is available to members of a board of commissioners of a forest preserve district who are elected to serve on a forest preserve district that is located in a county having a population of more than 800,000 but fewer than 3,000,000 inhabitants. Amends the Downstate Forest Preserve District Act. Provides that, in addition to property owned by a forest preserve district, property in which a forest preserve district is the grantee of a conservation easement or the grantee of a conservation right, as defined in the Real Property Conservation Rights Act, shall not be subject to eminent domain or condemnation proceedings, except as otherwise specifically provided. Deletes a provision that requires that the compensation for the president of the board of commissioners in certain counties shall be an amount equal to 85% of the annual salary of the county board chairman. Provides that the compensation of the president and the forest preserve commissioners shall be established by the board of commissioners of the forest preserve district (now, the compensation of the forest preserve commissioners is the same as that of county board members in the county with which the forest preserve is co-extensive). Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement.

 Pension Note (Commission on Gov't Forecasting and Accountability)
 Senate Bill 420 would not affect the annual costs of accrued liabilities of any current IMRF employer. For forest preserve districts with an elected board of commissioners there would be a fiscal impact, as the required employee contributions only pay a portion of the cost of the optional benefits. An exact fiscal impact cannot be determined at this time as it is unknown how many board members would participate. This Pension Impact Note only applies to the sections of Senate Bill 420 that amend the Illinois Pension Code.
