Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 3.1-35-35. Mayor or president pro tem; temporary chairman.
    (a) If the mayor or president is temporarily absent because of an incapacity to perform official duties, but the incapacity does not create a vacancy in the office, the corporate authorities shall elect one of their members to act as mayor or president pro tem. The mayor or president pro tem, during this absence or disability, shall perform the duties and possess all the rights and powers of the mayor or president but shall not be entitled to vote both as mayor or president pro tem and as alderperson or trustee.
    (b) In the absence of the mayor, president, acting mayor or president, or mayor or president pro tem, the corporate authorities may elect one of their members to act as a temporary chairman. The temporary chairman shall have only the powers of a presiding officer and a right to vote only in the capacity as alderperson or trustee on any ordinance, resolution, or motion.
