SB 3639 amends the General Provisions Article of the Illinois Pension Code. It requires any open meeting of the board of trustees of a retirement system or pension fund, or any committee thereof, to be broadcast to the public and maintained in real-time on the retirement system or pension fund’s website using a high-speed Internet connection. SB 3639 requires both audio and video to be made available for meetings that are broadcast and maintained. SB 3639 exempts downstate police and downstate firefighters’ pension funds from these requirements.
SB 3639 takes effect on December 31, 2020.
SB 3639 is similar to House Bill 4413 of the 100th General Assembly.
