(320 ILCS 5/1) (from Ch. 23, par. 6151)
Sec. 1. It is hereby found and determined by the General Assembly that state boards and commissions exist for the singular purpose of protecting the public health and welfare; that citizens over 60 years of age represent a significant percentage of the population and have the time and experience to devote to the important issues which have a profound effect on the daily lives of older Illinoisans.
It is also hereby found that senior citizens shall hold their positions on boards and commissions by matter of right, not discretion. These positions shall be held by consumer representatives over the age of 60 who shall serve as spokespersons for the interests of the State's older population.
