    AN ACT concerning local government.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Street Light District Act is amended by
changing Section 2c as follows:
    (70 ILCS 3305/2c)  (from Ch. 121, par. 356c)
    Sec. 2c. Disconnection. Any territory within a street
lighting district that is or has been annexed to a city,
village or incorporated town that provides street lighting
within such city, village or incorporated town is, by operation
of law, disconnected from the street lighting district as of
the January first after such territory is annexed to the city,
village or incorporated town, or in case territory has been so
annexed prior to the effective date of this amendatory Act of
1959, as of January 1, 1960. If there are any bonds of the
street lighting district outstanding and unpaid at the time
such territory is annexed to the city, village or incorporated
town, such territory shall remain liable for its proportionate
share of such bonded indebtedness and the street lighting
district may continue to levy and extend taxes upon the taxable
property in such territory for the purpose of amortizing such
bonds until such time as such bonds are retired.
    Territory shall not be disconnected from a street lighting
district if all of the following criteria are met: (i) the
municipality which contains all or part of the street lighting
district does not levy a property tax on the taxable property
in the territory, (ii) the municipality passes an ordinance
permitting the street lighting district to operate and levy a
tax, and (iii) the municipality does not collect a franchise
fee from an electrical utility.
