Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Governmental Ethics Act. Provides that no board member may receive more than one per diem, stipend, or other similar form of compensation for meetings that are held on consecutive days unless: (i) each meeting is more than 4 hours long, or (ii) in the case of an emergency. Defines "board" to include a board, commission, authority, task force, or other similar body to which one or more members are appointed by the Governor.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes: provides that a board member may not receive per meeting compensation for more than one meeting held during any 7 consecutive day period (instead of meetings held on consecutive days). Makes changes to the definition of "board".

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides that the definition of "board" refers to any body to which one or more members are appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate, but does not include any subcommittee thereof.
