(70 ILCS 3615/4.13)
(from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 704.13)
Annual Capital Improvement Plan.
(a) With respect to each calendar year, the Authority shall prepare as
part of its Five Year Program an Annual Capital Improvement Plan (the
"Plan") which shall describe its intended development and implementation of
the Strategic Capital Improvement Program. The Plan shall include the
(i) a list of projects for which approval is sought
from the Governor, with a description of each project stating at a minimum the project cost, its category, its location and the entity responsible for its implementation;
(ii) a certification by the Authority that the
Authority and the Service Boards have applied for all grants, loans and other moneys made available by the federal government or the State of Illinois during the preceding federal and State fiscal years for financing its capital development activities;
(iii) a certification that, as of September 30 of the
preceding calendar year or any later date, the balance of all federal capital grant funds and all other funds to be used as matching funds therefor which were committed to or possessed by the Authority or a Service Board but which had not been obligated was less than $350,000,000, or a greater amount as authorized in writing by the Governor (for purposes of this subsection (a), "obligated" means committed to be paid by the Authority or a Service Board under a contract with a nongovernmental entity in connection with the performance of a project or committed under a force account plan approved by the federal government);
(iv) a certification that the Authority has adopted a
balanced budget with respect to such calendar year under Section 4.01 of this Act;
(v) a schedule of all bonds or notes previously
issued for Strategic Capital Improvement Projects and all debt service payments to be made with respect to all such bonds and the estimated additional debt service payments through June 30 of the following calendar year expected to result from bonds to be sold prior thereto;
(vi) a long-range summary of the Strategic Capital
Improvement Program describing the projects to be funded through the Program with respect to project cost, category, location, and implementing entity, and presenting a financial plan including an estimated time schedule for obligating funds for the performance of approved projects, issuing bonds, expending bond proceeds and paying debt service throughout the duration of the Program; and
(vii) the source of funding for each project in the
Plan. For any project for which full funding has not yet been secured and which is not subject to a federal full funding contract, the Authority must identify alternative, dedicated funding sources available to complete the project. The Governor may waive this requirement on a project by project basis.
(b) The Authority shall submit the Plan with respect to any calendar
year to the Governor on or before January 15 of that year, or as soon as
possible thereafter; provided, however, that the Plan shall be adopted on
the affirmative votes of 12
of the then Directors. The Plan may be revised
or amended at any time, but any revision in the projects approved shall
require the Governor's approval.
(c) The Authority shall seek approval from the Governor only through the
Plan or an amendment thereto. The Authority shall not request approval of the
Plan from the Governor in any calendar year in which it is unable to make the
certifications required under items (ii), (iii) and (iv) of subsection (a).
In no event shall the Authority seek approval of the Plan from the Governor for
projects in an aggregate amount exceeding the proceeds of bonds or notes
for Strategic Capital Improvement Projects issued under Section 4.04 of this
(d) The Governor may approve the Plan for which
approval is requested. The Governor's approval is limited to
the amount of the project cost stated in the Plan. The Governor shall not
approve the Plan in a calendar year if the Authority is unable to make
the certifications required under items (ii), (iii) and (iv)
of subsection (a). In no event shall the Governor approve the Plan for
projects in an aggregate amount exceeding the proceeds of
bonds or notes for Strategic Capital Improvement Projects issued under
Section 4.04 of this Act.
(e) With respect to capital improvements, only those capital improvements
which are in a Plan approved by the Governor shall be financed with the
proceeds of bonds or notes issued for Strategic Capital Improvement Projects.
(f) Before the Authority or a Service Board obligates any funds for a
project for which the Authority or Service Board intends to use the proceeds
of bonds or notes for Strategic Capital Improvement Projects, but which project
is not included in an approved Plan, the Authority must notify the Governor of
the intended obligation. No project costs incurred prior to approval of the
Plan including that project may be paid from the proceeds of bonds or notes for
Strategic Capital Improvement Projects issued under Section 4.04 of this Act.
