Illinois Public Act 096-0006 became effective on April 3, 2009, making significant changes to the operations of Illinois retirement systems, pension funds and investment boards. The Act imposes increased oversight and accountability requirements on the boards of trustees, fiduciaries and investment advisers, managers and consultants. The provisions apply not only at the state level, but at the local level, including pension systems of the City of Chicago and other local governments.
The Act amends the Illinois Pension Code (40 ILCS 5/1-101 et seq.), the Illinois Governmental Ethics Act (5 ILCS 420/1-101 et seq.), the State Officials and Employees Ethics Act (5 ILCS 430/1-1 et seq.), and the State Treasurer Act (15 ILCS 505/0.01 et seq.).
