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.
(605 ILCS 5/6-901)
(from Ch. 121, par. 6-901)
Annually, the General Assembly shall appropriate to the
Department of Transportation from the road fund, the general revenue
fund, any other State funds or a combination of those funds, $60,000,000
for apportionment to counties for the use of road districts for the
construction of bridges 20 feet or more in length, as provided in
Sections 6-902 through 6-905.
The Department of Transportation shall apportion among the several
counties of this State for the use of road districts the amounts
appropriated under this Section. The amount apportioned to a county
shall be in the proportion which the total mileage of township or
district roads in the county bears to the total mileage of all township
and district roads in the State. Each county shall allocate to the
several road districts in the county the funds so apportioned to the
county. The allocation to road districts shall be made in the same
manner and be subject to the same conditions and qualifications as are
provided by Section 8 of the "Motor Fuel Tax Law", approved March 25,
1929, as amended, with respect to the allocation to road districts of
the amount allotted from the Motor Fuel Tax Fund for apportionment to
counties for the use of road districts, but no allocation shall be made
to any road district that has not levied taxes for road and bridge
purposes and for bridge construction purposes at the maximum rates
permitted by Sections 6-501, 6-508 and 6-512 of this Act, without
referendum. "Road district" and "township or district road" have the
meanings ascribed to those terms in this Act.
Road districts in counties in which a property tax extension limitation is
imposed under the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law that are made
ineligible for receipt of this appropriation due to the imposition of a
property tax extension limitation may become eligible if, at the time the
property tax extension limitation was imposed, the road district was levying at
the required rate and continues to levy the maximum allowable amount
after the imposition of the property tax extension limitation. The road
eligible if it levies at or above the rate required for eligibility by Section
8 of the
Motor Fuel Tax Law.
The amounts apportioned under this Section for allocation to road
districts may be used only for bridge construction as provided in this
Division. So much of those amounts as are not obligated under Sections
6-902 through 6-904 and for which local funds have not been committed
under Section 6-905 within 48 months of the date
when such apportionment is
made lapses and shall not be paid to the county treasurer for
distribution to road districts.
