Public Act 101-0584
SB1418 EnrolledLRB101 08285 AWJ 53352 b
AN ACT concerning local government.
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
Section 5. The Bi-State Development Agency Act is amended
by changing Section 2 and adding Section 10 as follows:
(45 ILCS 105/2) (from Ch. 127, par. 63s-2)
Sec. 2. (a) Of the Commissioners first appointed one shall
be appointed to serve for a term of one year, one for two
years, one for three years, one for four years and one for five
years from the third Monday in January following his
appointment. Beginning with the appointment to be filled in
January of 2004, and the expiration of each term of each
commissioner thereafter, and each succeeding commissioner
thereafter, the Chairman of the County Board of the County of
Madison or the County of St. Clair, as the case may be, shall,
by and with the advice and consent of the respective County
Board, appoint a successor who shall hold office for a term of
five years. Each commissioner shall hold office until his
successor has been appointed and qualified. The commissioners
shall elect a chairman of the Illinois delegation annually from
among themselves.
(b) The Chairman of the County Board of St. Clair County
shall appoint a commissioner for the term expiring in January,
2004 and in the following year the Chairman of the County Board
of Madison County shall appoint a commissioner for the term
expiring in January of that year. Successive appointments shall
alternate between the Chairman of the St. Clair County Board
and the Chairman of the Madison County Board, except as may be
modified by the provisions of subsection (c).
(c) In the event that a tax has been imposed in Monroe
County consistent with the provisions of Section 5.01 of the
Local Mass Transit District Act, the Chairman of the Monroe
County Board shall, upon the expiration of the term of a
commissioner who is a resident of the County in which 3 of the
then remaining commissioners reside, appoint a commissioner
with the advice and consent of the Monroe County Board. The
commissioner appointed by the Monroe County Board shall hold
office for a term of 5 years and a successor shall be appointed
by the chairman of the Monroe County Board, with the advice and
consent of the Monroe County Board. The appointments of the 4
remaining commissioners shall then continue to alternate
between St. Clair and Madison County so that each County shall
continue to retain the appointments of 2 commissioners. To the
extent that this subsection (c) conflicts with any other
provision of this Section or Section 3, the provisions of this
subsection (c) control.
(d) A county authorized to appoint commissioners that does
not contract for light rail service with the Bi-State
Development Agency and does not pay for that service in part
with county-generated revenue shall be limited to one
commissioner. When the term of an existing commissioner expires
from the county without light rail service and there is another
commissioner from that county serving an unexpired term, the
commissioner leaving shall be replaced by an appointee from a
county contracting for light rail service; this process shall
continue until the county without light rail service has only
one commissioner. At that point, that one commissioner will
continue to be appointed as previously authorized by this Act.
