Provides that the Board may: (1) adopt rules in accordance with the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act, for the administration and execution of the powers granted under the Act after consultation with and written approval by the Department of Natural Resources; (2) list, delist, create specific list designations, create designation definitions, create property assessment criteria, or change the listing designation of State Historic Sites; and (3) advise the Department of Natural Resources on methods of assistance, protection, conservation, and management of State Historic Sites, which are all subject to Department approval and available appropriations to implement those recommendations. Provides that the listing, delisting, creation of specific list designations or designation definitions, or change of listing designation by the Board shall be done only with the written approval of the Director of Natural Resources.
