(30 ILCS 105/6z-78)
    Sec. 6z-78. Capital Projects Fund; bonded indebtedness; transfers. Money in the Capital Projects Fund shall, if and when the State of Illinois incurs any bonded indebtedness using the bond authorizations enacted in Public Act 96-36, Public Act 96-1554, Public Act 97-771, and this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly, 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.
    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 general obligation bonds using bond authorizations enacted in Public Act 96-36, Public Act 96-1554, Public Act 97-771, and this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly 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 the period.
    (a) Except as provided for in subsection (b), on or before the last day of each month, the State Treasurer and State Comptroller shall transfer from the Capital Projects 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) On or before the last day of each month, the State Treasurer and State Comptroller shall transfer from the Capital Projects 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 issued prior to January 1, 2012 pursuant to Section 4(d) of the General Obligation Bond Act 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. If the available balance in the Capital Projects Fund is not sufficient for the transfer required in this subsection, the State Treasurer and State Comptroller shall transfer the difference from the Road Fund to the General Obligation Bond Retirement and Interest Fund; except that such Road Fund transfers shall constitute a debt of the Capital Projects Fund which shall be repaid according to subsection (c). 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.
    (c) On the first day of any month when the Capital Projects Fund is carrying a debt to the Road Fund due to the provisions of subsection (b), the State Treasurer and State Comptroller shall transfer from the Capital Projects Fund to the Road Fund an amount sufficient to discharge that debt. These transfers to the Road Fund shall continue until the Capital Projects Fund has repaid to the Road Fund all transfers made from the Road Fund pursuant to subsection (b). Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, transfers to the Road Fund from the Capital Projects Fund shall be made prior to any other expenditures or transfers out of the Capital Projects Fund.
