(30 ILCS 105/6z-75)
    Sec. 6z-75. The Illinois Power Agency Trust Fund.
    (a) Creation. The Illinois Power Agency Trust Fund is created as a special fund in the State treasury. The State Treasurer shall be the custodian of the Fund. Amounts in the Fund, both principal and interest not appropriated, shall be invested as provided by law.
    (b) Funding and investment.
        (1) The Illinois Power Agency Trust Fund may accept,
    
receive, and administer any grants, loans, or other funds made available to it by any source. Any such funds received by the Fund shall not be considered income, but shall be added to the principal of the Fund.
        (2) The investments of the Fund shall be managed by
    
the Illinois State Board of Investment, for the purpose of obtaining a total return on investments for the long term, as provided for under Article 22A of the Illinois Pension Code.
    (c) Investment proceeds. Subject to the provisions of subsection (d) of this Section, the General Assembly may annually appropriate from the Illinois Power Agency Trust Fund to the Illinois Power Agency Operations Fund an amount calculated not to exceed 90% of the prior fiscal year's annual investment income earned by the Fund to the Illinois Power Agency. Any investment income not appropriated by the General Assembly in a given fiscal year shall be added to the principal of the Fund, and thereafter considered a part thereof and not subject to appropriation as income earned by the Fund.
    (d) Expenditures.
        (1) During Fiscal Year 2008 and Fiscal Year 2009, the
    
General Assembly shall not appropriate any of the investment income earned by the Illinois Power Agency Trust Fund to the Illinois Power Agency.
        (2) During Fiscal Year 2010 and Fiscal Year 2011, the
    
General Assembly shall appropriate a portion of the investment income earned by the Illinois Power Agency Trust Fund to repay to the General Revenue Fund of the State of Illinois those amounts, if any, appropriated from the General Revenue Fund for the operation of the Illinois Power Agency during Fiscal Year 2008 and Fiscal Year 2009, so that at the end of Fiscal Year 2011, the entire amount, if any, appropriated from the General Revenue Fund for the operation of the Illinois Power Agency during Fiscal Year 2008 and Fiscal Year 2009 will be repaid in full to the General Revenue Fund.
        (3) In Fiscal Year 2012 and thereafter, the General
    
Assembly shall consider the need to balance its appropriations from the investment income earned by the Fund with the need to provide for the growth of the principal of the Illinois Power Agency Trust Fund in order to ensure that the Fund is able to produce sufficient investment income to fund the operations of the Illinois Power Agency in future years.
        (4) If the Illinois Power Agency shall cease
    
operations, then, unless otherwise provided for by law or appropriation, the principal and any investment income earned by the Fund shall be transferred into the Supplemental Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Fund under Section 13 of the Energy Assistance Act of 1989.
    (e) Implementation. The provisions of this Section shall not be operative until the Illinois Power Agency Trust Fund has accumulated a principal balance of $25,000,000.
