        Amends the  Counties  Code.   Provides  that  on  and  after  the

   in his or her discretion and with the advice and consent of the county      
   board,  appoint  additional members to the Cook County Sheriff's Merit      
   Board (now limited to 5 members).  Provides that as additional members      
   are appointed, the political affiliation of the Board  shall  be  such

   may be affiliated with the same political  party.   Provides  that  as      
   additional  members are appointed, at least 40% of the members must be      
   present to constitute a quorum.  Effective immediately.

          HB 2245 fails to create a State mandate.                             
          HOME RULE NOTE                                                       
          HB 2245 does not preempt home rule authority.                        
          FISCAL NOTE (DCCA)                                                   
          HB 2245 is permissive and would not have a fiscal impact on          
          units of local gov't.
