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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

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

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.
