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.

110 ILCS 805/3-14.2

    (110 ILCS 805/3-14.2) (from Ch. 122, par. 103-14.2)
    Sec. 3-14.2. In addition to any other tax levies authorized by law, the board of a community college district (1) whose boundaries are entirely within a county with a population in excess of 2 million persons and (2) which was organized as a public junior college prior to October 1, 1973, and (3) whose existence was validated by an Act filed with the Secretary of State on May 31, 1937, may levy an additional tax upon the taxable property of the district in any year in which the State Board issues a certificate of eligibility to do so. The additional tax may be used to increase the total taxing authority of the district to the rate of 23.54 cents per $100 of equalized assessed value for educational and operations, building and maintenance purposes.
    In order to be eligible to levy the additional tax as provided herein, the district shall have been eligible to receive equalization grants pursuant to Section 2-16.02 for each of the five fiscal years in the period 1984 to 1988.
    The additional amount certified by the State Board to be levied shall not exceed the combined increases in the educational and operations, building and maintenance purposes funds authorized in Section 3-14. The State Board shall notify the board of trustees of the community college district of its eligibility to levy additional taxes as authorized in this Section and the amount of such levy, by November 1, 1988.
    A resolution, adopted pursuant to the provisions of the Open Meetings Act, which expresses the district's intent to levy such a tax, or a portion thereof, when accompanied by the State Board certificate of eligibility, shall be the authority for the county clerk or clerks to extend such a tax. The district board shall cause a copy of the resolution to be published in one or more newspapers published in the district within 10 days after such levy is made. If no newspaper is published in the district, the resolution shall be published in a newspaper having general circulation within the district. The publication of the resolution shall include a notice of (1) the specific number of voters required to sign a petition requesting that the question of the adoption of the tax levy be submitted to the voters of the district; (2) the time within which the petition must be filed; and (3) the date of the prospective referendum. The district secretary shall provide a petition form to any individual requesting one.
    If within 30 days of the adoption of such additional levy, a petition is filed with the secretary of the board of trustees, signed by not less than 10% of the voters of the district, requesting that the proposition to levy such additional taxes as authorized by this Section be submitted to the voters of the district, then the district shall not be authorized to levy such additional taxes as permitted by this Section until the proposition has been submitted to and approved by a majority of the voters voting on the proposition at a regularly scheduled election in the manner provided in the general election law. The secretary shall certify the proposition to the proper election authority for submission to the voters. If no such petition with the requisite number of signatures and which is otherwise valid is filed within such 30 day period, then the district shall thereafter be authorized to levy such additional taxes as provided and for the purposes expressed in this Section.
