    AN ACT concerning education.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The School Code is amended by changing Section
3A-15 as follows:
    (105 ILCS 5/3A-15)  (from Ch. 122, par. 3A-15)
    Sec. 3A-15. Legal representation. Except as otherwise
provided in this Section, upon Upon request the State's
attorney of the county where the regional superintendent's
office is located shall act as the legal representative of the
regional superintendent of schools; however, where matters
arise which are within the exclusive jurisdiction of another
State's attorney, said State's attorney shall provide legal
representation. If, in multicounty educational service
regions, the county boards grant approval through an
intergovernmental agreement, or if, in educational service
regions serving only one county, the county board grants
approval, then the regional superintendent of schools is
authorized to hire private legal counsel to represent him or
her in legal matters, and each county located within the region
shall pay a per capita share of the legal fees incurred, based
on the number of people in the county according to the most
recent U.S. census.
