Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (70 ILCS 2605/4b) (from Ch. 42, par. 323b)
    Sec. 4b. The Governor shall appoint, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, a State Sanitary District Observer. The term of the person first appointed shall expire on the third Monday in January, 1969. If the Senate is not in session when the first appointment is made, the Governor shall make a temporary appointment as in the case of a vacancy. Thereafter the term of office of the State Sanitary District Observer shall be for 2 years commencing on the third Monday in January of 1969 and each odd-numbered year thereafter. Any person appointed to such office shall hold office for the duration of his term and until his successor is appointed and qualified.
    The State Sanitary District Observer must have a knowledge of the principles of sanitary engineering. He shall be paid from the State Treasury an annual salary of $15,000 or as set by the Compensation Review Board, whichever is greater, and shall also be reimbursed for necessary expenses incurred in the performance of his duties.
    The State Sanitary District Observer has the same right as any Trustee or the Executive Director to attend any meeting in connection with the business of The Metropolitan Sanitary District of Greater Chicago. He shall have access to all records and works of the District. He may conduct inquiries and investigations into the efficiency and adequacy of the operations of the District, including the effect of the operations of the District upon areas of the State outside the boundaries of the District.
    The State Sanitary District Observer shall report to the Governor, the General Assembly, the Department of Natural Resources, and the Environmental Protection Agency annually and more frequently if requested by the Governor.
    The requirement for reporting to the General Assembly shall be satisfied by filing copies of the report as required by Section 3.1 of the General Assembly Organization Act, and filing such additional copies with the State Government Report Distribution Center for the General Assembly as is required under paragraph (t) of Section 7 of the State Library Act.
