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.

65 ILCS 5/5-3-3

    (65 ILCS 5/5-3-3) (from Ch. 24, par. 5-3-3)
    Sec. 5-3-3. Every resolution and motion, specified in Section 5-3-2, and every ordinance, which is returned to the council or board by the mayor or president shall be reconsidered by the council or board. If, after such reconsideration, two-thirds of all the alderpersons then holding office on the city council or two-thirds of all the trustees then holding office on the village board agree to pass an ordinance, resolution, or motion, notwithstanding the mayor's or president's refusal to approve it, then it shall be effective. The vote on the question of passage over the mayor's or president's veto shall be by yeas and nays, and shall be recorded in the journal.
