Short description: 
COORDINATE SYSTEM ACT-GEODETIC                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Coordinate System  Act.   Provides  that  the      
   United States Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric      
   Administration,  National  Ocean  Service,  National  Geodetic  Survey      
   (rather  than  National  Ocean Survey) established the system of plane      
   coordinates for defining and stating the  positions  or  locations  of      
   points on the surface of the earth within the State of Illinois, known      
   as the Illinois Coordinate System.  Provides that the 2 distances that      
   constitute  each  set  of  plane coordinates are expressed in units of      
   U.S. survey feet (rather than simply  in  feet).   Provides  that  the      
   coordinates  of the system depend on and conform to the coordinates on      
   the Illinois Coordinate System of the monumented survey  (rather  than      
   the triangulation and traverse) stations of the United States National      
   Geodetic  Survey (rather than the United States National Ocean Survey)      
   within the State of Illinois. Adopts the definitions (rather than  the      
   definition)  by  the  United  States National Geodetic Survey for more      
   precisely  defining  the   Illinois   Coordinate   System.   Effective      
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Transportation)                           
          SB 824 will have no fiscal impact on IDOT since the Department       
          has been using coordinate values based on the NAD 83 definition      
          for the past twelve years.
