Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that in order to post a speed limit on a highway under its jurisdiction that is less than the limit prescribed in a provision of the Code concerning general speed restrictions, the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority shall obtain approval from the General Assembly. Provides that the Authority shall not issue a regulation to change the speed limit for vehicles of the second division weighing more than 8,000 pounds that is more than 10 miles per hour less than the maximum speed limit of that highway. Provides that beginning 6 months after the effective date of the bill, and except for vehicles of the second division weighing more than 8,000 pounds, the Authority shall issue a regulation to change the speed limit on any part of a highway under its jurisdiction to the maximum speed limit authorized in the Code for highways under its jurisdiction.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes. Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that beginning 12 months after the effective date of the bill, the effective absolute maximum speed limit on any part of a highway under the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority's jurisdiction shall be: (1) except for Interstate Route 294 and the portion of Interstate Route 94 that is between Interstate Route 294 and U.S. Route 41, 70 miles per hour or the maximum speed limit authorized in the Code, whichever is less; and (2) 60 miles per hour or the maximum speed limit authorized in the Code, whichever is less, on Interstate Route 294 and the portion of Interstate Route 94 that is between Interstate Route 294 and U.S. Route 41.
