Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Public Library District Act. Provides that territory annexed by a public library district included within a municipality or school district shall be approved by ordinance of the board and voter referendum (currently, only by ordinance of the board with the option for a back-door referendum to prevent the annexation). Provides that a petition and referendum for disconnection of annexed territory may occur at any time after the annexation (currently, within 1 year after annexation or 30 days after the date that the first tax bill reflecting the tax levied by the district are sent). Removes a prohibition of more than one petition and referendum for disconnection of the annexed territory. Further provides that any area disconnected by petition and referendum will not be liable for any general obligation bonds of the public library district, or other obligations or liabilities, issued or incurred after a petition for disconnection has been under filed if the referendum for disconnection is approved. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes: Provides that publication or posting of the ordinance to annex territory shall include the question of the adoption of the ordinance to be submitted to the voters. Revises provisions regarding backdoor referenda into required referenda (rather than adding new provisions for required referenda). Repeals provisions allowing a referendum to disconnect annexed territory from a library district (rather than modifying the provisions). Effective immediately.
