    Sec. 6z-54. The Energy Infrastructure Fund.
    (a) The Energy Infrastructure Fund is created as a special fund in the State treasury.
    (b) Money in the Energy Infrastructure Fund shall, if and when the State of Illinois issues any bonded indebtedness for financial assistance to new electric generating facilities, as provided in Section 605-332 of the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois, 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 financial assistance to new electric generating facilities under Section 605-332 of the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois, the State Comptroller shall compute and certify to the State Treasurer the total amount of principal and interest, and premium, if any, on such bonds during the then current and each succeeding fiscal year. On or before the last day of each month, the State Treasurer and the State Comptroller shall transfer from the Energy 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.
    (c) To the extent that moneys in the Energy Infrastructure Fund, in the opinion of the Governor and the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget, are in excess of 125% of the maximum debt service in any fiscal year, such surplus shall, subject to appropriation, be used by the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity for financial assistance under other coal development programs administered by the Department, in accordance with the rules of the Department or for other State purposes subject to appropriation.
