§ 32.23  AMENDMENTS.
   (A)   This subchapter does not repeal or otherwise amend or modify any existing ordinances or policies which regulate the conduct of village officers and employees. To the extent that any such existing ordinances or policies are less restrictive than this subchapter, however, the provisions of this subchapter shall prevail in accordance with the provisions of 5 ILCS 430/70-5(a).
   (B)   Any amendment to the Act that becomes effective after the effective date of this subchapter shall be incorporated into this subchapter by reference and shall be applicable to the solicitation, acceptance, offering, and making of gifts and to prohibited political activities. However, any amendment that makes its provisions optional for adoption by municipalities shall not be incorporated into this subchapter by reference without formal action by the corporate authorities of the village.
   (C)   If the state’s Supreme Court declares the Act unconstitutional in its entirety, then this subchapter shall be repealed as of the date that the Supreme Court’s decision becomes final and not subject to any further appeals or rehearings. This subchapter shall be deemed repealed without further action by the corporate authorities of the village if the Act is found unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.
   (D)   If the state’s Supreme Court declares part of the Act unconstitutional but upholds the constitutionality of the remainder of the Act, or does not address the remainder of the Act, then the remainder of the Act as adopted by this subchapter shall remain in full force and effect; however, that part of this subchapter relating to the part of the Act found unconstitutional shall be deemed repealed without further action by the corporate authorities of the village.
