Lottery Control Board Bylaw Amendment

At the March, 2014 Lottery Control Board meeting, the Board approved an amendment to the bylaws.

Section 9 Public Record and Public Participation was amended as follows:

(e) This Board will permit any member of the public to speak on any matter listed on the meeting’s publicly posted agenda. In accordance with 5 ILCS 120/2.06(g), this Board requires that persons wishing to comment on agenda items during a public meeting of the Board, request permission to speak in writing, at least 24 hours before the meeting. In the event that the meeting immediately follows a weekend or holiday, any written request to address the Board must be received no later than 4:00pm on the last business day preceding the weekend or holiday. Such requests should be submitted in writing to the Secretary of the Board, and should provide the following information:

1. Speaker’s Name
2. Name of Business, Association or Organization, if applicable
3. Residential or Business Address
4. Agenda topic(s) on which the person wishes to address the Board.

I. Designated comment period Public comments are the first items addressed on each Board meeting agenda. The chair may require persons wishing to speak to sign in before the start of the meeting and to provide their names and business or residential address. Prior to speaking, each person must be recognized by the chair and must state and spell his or her name for the public record.

II. Time limits Public comment is limited to no more than three minutes per person and to no more than fifteen minutes in total per meeting, unless there is consent of a majority vote of the members present to extend the time period. The chair shall monitor each speaker’s use of time and shall notify the speaker when the time allotted has expired.

III. Limits on group comments Whenever any group of persons wishes to address the Board on the same topic, the chair may ask that a spokesperson be chosen from the group. If additional matters are to be presented by other persons in the group, the chair may limit the number of such persons and may limit the presentation to information not already presented by the group spokesperson.

Note: The Secretary of the board can be reached at or via US Mail at 122 S. Michigan Avenue, 19th Floor, Chicago, IL 60603.
