SCH CD-TAX EQ GRANT-US BASE                                                

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the School Code.  Allows a tax-equivalent grant to be paid      
   to a school district (other than the Chicago  school  district)  if  a      
   United  States  military  installation  or  base  is  located  in  the      
          FISCAL NOTE (State Board of Education)                               
          It appears that both Scott Air Force base and the Great Lakes        
          Naval base may own land within the boundaries of several             
          school districts. At this point, SBE has been unable to deter-       
          mine exactly how many acres are owned by the federal government      
          in each affected school district or the average value of an          
          acre in each school district. Therefore, SBE has been unable to      
          calculate the State cost of HB 2390.                                 
          STATE MANDATES NOTE (State Board of Education)                       
          At this point, SBE has not been able to determine which dis-         
          tricts this may apply to, the number of acres of land owned by       
          the U.S. in military bases/installations, or the average value       
          of an acre in each school district. Therefore, SBE has been          
          unable to calculate a potential cost for the State.                  
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Makes a technical change.                                              
          STATE MANDATES NOTE, H-AM 1 (State Board of Education)               
          Assuming that each of the facilities owning land within the          
          boundaries of Illinois school districts of less than 500,000         
          is completely within a single school district and the average        
          value per taxable acre of the school district is the same as         
          that of the county, the approximate cost of HB 2390 is $600,035      
          as follows:
