Troy A. Kost, executive secre¬ tary, and John J. Nimrod, a director called the bills "'the most important township legislation to be adopted in years.'' , Kost explained that the two town¬ ship bills that passed place more than 1400 townships governmental units in 85 Illinois counties under provisions of tho state budgetary law for the first time. "This modernizes township gov- • ernmcnt by givini; it the same bud¬ get and levy rights as every other local governmental unit in the state such as cities, park boards and school boards, subject to the same controls and restrictions," Kost said.
