    Sec. 6z-45. The School Infrastructure Fund.
    (a) The School Infrastructure Fund is created as a special fund in the State Treasury.
    In addition to any other deposits authorized by law, beginning January 1, 2000, on the first day of each month, or as soon thereafter as may be practical, the State Treasurer and State Comptroller shall transfer the sum of $5,000,000 from the General Revenue Fund to the School Infrastructure Fund, except that, notwithstanding any other provision of law, and in addition to any other transfers that may be provided for by law, before June 30, 2012, the Comptroller and the Treasurer shall transfer $45,000,000 from the General Revenue Fund into the School Infrastructure Fund, and, for fiscal year 2013 only, the Treasurer and the Comptroller shall transfer $1,250,000 from the General Revenue Fund to the School Infrastructure Fund on the first day of each month; provided, however, that no such transfers shall be made from July 1, 2001 through June 30, 2003.
    (a-5) Money in the School Infrastructure Fund may be used to pay the expenses of the State Board of Education, the Governor's Office of Management and Budget, and the Capital Development Board in administering programs under the School Construction Law, the total expenses not to exceed $1,315,000 in any fiscal year.
    (b) Subject to the transfer provisions set forth below, money in the School Infrastructure Fund shall, if and when the State of Illinois incurs any bonded indebtedness for the construction of school improvements under subsection (e) of Section 5 of the General Obligation Bond Act, be set aside and used for the purpose of paying and discharging annually the principal and interest on that bonded indebtedness then due and payable, and for no other purpose.
    In addition to other transfers to the General Obligation Bond Retirement and Interest Fund made pursuant to Section 15 of the General Obligation Bond Act, upon each delivery of bonds issued for construction of school improvements under the School Construction Law, the State Comptroller shall compute and certify to the State Treasurer the total amount of principal of, interest on, and premium, if any, on such bonds during the then current and each succeeding fiscal year. With respect to the interest payable on variable rate bonds, such certifications shall be calculated at the maximum rate of interest that may be payable during the fiscal year, after taking into account any credits permitted in the related indenture or other instrument against the amount of such interest required to be appropriated for that period.
    On or before the last day of each month, the State Treasurer and State Comptroller shall transfer from the School Infrastructure Fund to the General Obligation Bond Retirement and Interest Fund an amount sufficient to pay the aggregate of the principal of, interest on, and premium, if any, on the bonds payable on their next payment date, divided by the number of monthly transfers occurring between the last previous payment date (or the delivery date if no payment date has yet occurred) and the next succeeding payment date. Interest payable on variable rate bonds shall be calculated at the maximum rate of interest that may be payable for the relevant period, after taking into account any credits permitted in the related indenture or other instrument against the amount of such interest required to be appropriated for that period. Interest for which moneys have already been deposited into the capitalized interest account within the General Obligation Bond Retirement and Interest Fund shall not be included in the calculation of the amounts to be transferred under this subsection.
    (b-5) The money deposited into the School Infrastructure Fund from transfers pursuant to subsections (c-30) and (c-35) of Section 13 of the Riverboat Gambling Act shall be applied, without further direction, as provided in subsection (b-3) of Section 5-35 of the School Construction Law.
    (c) The surplus, if any, in the School Infrastructure Fund after payments made pursuant to subsections (a-5), (b), and (b-5) of this Section shall, subject to appropriation, be used as follows:
    First - to make 3 payments to the School Technology Revolving Loan Fund as follows:
        Transfer of $30,000,000 in fiscal year 1999;
        Transfer of $20,000,000 in fiscal year 2000; and
        Transfer of $10,000,000 in fiscal year 2001.
    Second - to pay any amounts due for grants for school construction projects and debt service under the School Construction Law.
    Third - to pay any amounts due for grants for school maintenance projects under the School Construction Law.
