House Committee Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
20 ILCS 862/50 new

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Highway Code. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with changes. Provides that money received by the State of Illinois from the federal government under the Recreational Trails Program for grants or contracts obligated on or after October 1, 2017 shall not be considered for use as aid in construction of highways, and shall be placed in the "Park and Conservation Fund" in the State treasury (rather than not placed in the "Road Fund"). Amends the Recreational Trails of Illinois Act. Provides that the Department of Natural Resources may enter into agreements as necessary with the Federal Highway Administration, or any successor agency, for the purpose of authorizing federal obligation limitations for projects under the federal Recreational Trails Program; provided however, the Department and the Illinois Department of Transportation shall enter into an inter-agency agreement to closely coordinate the obligation of projects authorized by the Illinois Division Office of the Federal Highway Administration to maximize federal funding opportunities.
