Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

70 ILCS 1860/8

    (70 ILCS 1860/8) (from Ch. 19, par. 291)
    Sec. 8. The District has the continuing power to borrow money and issue either general obligation bonds, after approval by referendum as hereinafter provided, or revenue bonds without referendum approval for the purpose of acquiring, constructing, reconstructing, extending or improving terminals, terminal facilities, airfields, airports and port facilities, and for acquiring any property and equipment useful for the construction, reconstruction, extension, improvement or operation of its terminals, terminal facilities, airfields, airports and port facilities, and for acquiring necessary working cash funds.
    The District may, pursuant to ordinance adopted by the Board and without submitting the question to referendum, from time to time issue and dispose of its interest bearing revenue bonds and may also in the same manner from time to time issue and dispose of its interest bearing revenue bonds to refund any revenue bonds at maturity or pursuant to redemption provisions or at any time before maturity with the consent of the holders thereof.
    If the Board desires to issue general obligation bonds it shall adopt an ordinance specifying the amount of bonds to be issued, the purpose for which they will be issued, the maximum rate of interest they will bear which shall not be greater than that permitted in "An Act to authorize public corporations to issue bonds, other evidences of indebtedness and tax anticipation warrants subject to interest rate limitations set forth therein", approved May 26, 1970, as now or hereafter amended. Such interest may be paid semiannually. The ordinance shall also specify the date of maturity which shall not be more than 20 years after the date of issuance, and levying a tax that will be required to amortize such bonds. This ordinance is not effective until it has been submitted to referendum of, and approved by, the legal voters of the District. The Board shall certify the ordinance and the question to the proper election officials, who shall submit the question to the voters at an election in accordance with the general election law. If a majority of the vote is in favor of the issuance of the general obligation bonds the county clerk shall annually extend taxes against all taxable property within the District at a rate sufficient to pay the maturing principal and interest of these bonds.
    The question shall be in substantially the following form:
    Shall general obligation bonds
    in the amount of $.... be issued            YES
    by America's Central Port
    District for the purpose of ....        ------------------
