    Sec. 6z-59. The Tax Recovery Fund. There is created in the State treasury the Tax Recovery Fund. Through December 31, 2020, all moneys received from the rental, authorized under Section 2705-555 of the Department of Transportation Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois, of land, buildings, or improvements on property held for development of an airport in Will County by the Department of Transportation shall be remitted to the State Treasurer for payment into the Tax Recovery Fund. Subject to appropriation, the moneys in the Fund shall be expended with the following priority: (1) to compensate taxing districts for leasehold taxes then (2) to the General Revenue Fund less any money necessary to pay maintenance and repair costs for that real property. The tax compensation shall be determined in accordance with Sections 9-195 and 15-55 of the Property Tax Code. Expenditures for these purposes may be made by Department of Transportation without regard to the fiscal year in which tax compensation liability and property maintenance and repair costs were incurred. Unexpended moneys in the Fund shall not be transferred or allocated by the Comptroller or Treasurer to any other fund nor shall the Governor authorize the transfer or allocation of those moneys to any other fund. After December 31, 2020, all moneys received from the rental, authorized under Section 2705-555 of the Department of Transportation Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois, of land, buildings, or improvements on property held for the development of an airport in Will County by the Department of Transportation shall not be remitted to the Tax Recovery Fund but shall instead be paid to the General Revenue Fund. The balance remaining in the Tax Recovery Fund on December 31, 2020 shall first be expended to compensate taxing districts for leasehold taxes for the 2020 tax assessment year, and then transferred to the General Revenue Fund for the purpose of debt service on State bonds issued to provide funds for airport land acquisition in Will County.
