    AN ACT concerning revenue.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Property Tax Code is amended by changing
Section 21-205 as follows:
    (35 ILCS 200/21-205)
    Sec. 21-205. Tax sale procedures. The collector, in person
or by deputy, shall attend, on the day and in the place
specified in the notice for the sale of property for taxes, and
shall, between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., or later at the
collector's discretion, proceed to offer for sale, separately
and in consecutive order, all property in the list on which the
taxes, special assessments, interest or costs have not been
paid. However, in any county with 3,000,000 or more
inhabitants, the offer for sale shall be made between 8:00 a.m.
and 8:00 p.m. The collector's office shall be kept open during
all hours in which the sale is in progress. The sale shall be
continued from day to day, until all property in the delinquent
list has been offered for sale. However, any city, village or
incorporated town interested in the collection of any tax or
special assessment, may, in default of bidders, withdraw from
collection the special assessment levied against any property
by the corporate authorities of the city, village or
incorporated town. In case of a withdrawal, there shall be no
sale of that property on account of the delinquent special
assessment thereon.
    In every sale of property pursuant to the provisions of
this Code, the collector may employ any automated means that
the collector deems appropriate, provided that bidders are
required to personally attend the sale. The changes made by
this amendatory Act of the 94th General Assembly are
declarative of existing law.
