(415 ILCS 125/310)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2025)
    Sec. 310. Environmental impact fee; imposition. Beginning January 1, 1996, all receivers of fuel are subject to an environmental impact fee of $60 per 7,500 gallons of fuel, or an equivalent amount per fraction thereof, that is sold or used in Illinois. The fee shall be paid by the receiver in this State who first sells or uses the fuel. The environmental impact fee imposed by this Law replaces the fee imposed under the corresponding provisions of Article 3 of Public Act 89-428. Environmental impact fees paid under that Article 3 shall satisfy the receiver's corresponding liability under this Law.
    A receiver of fuels is subject to the fee without regard to whether the fuel is intended to be used for operation of motor vehicles on the public highways and waters. However, no fee shall be imposed upon the importation or receipt of aviation fuels and kerosene at airports with over 170,000 operations per year, located in a city of more than 1,000,000 inhabitants, for sale to or use by holders of certificates of public convenience and necessity or foreign air carrier permits, issued by the United States Department of Transportation, and their air carrier affiliates, or upon the importation or receipt of aviation fuels and kerosene at facilities owned or leased by those certificate or permit holders and used in their activities at an airport described above. In addition, no fee may be imposed upon the importation or receipt of diesel fuel or liquefied natural gas sold to or used by a rail carrier registered under Section 18c-7201 of the Illinois Vehicle Code or otherwise recognized by the Illinois Commerce Commission as a rail carrier, to the extent used directly in railroad operations. In addition, no fee may be imposed when the sale is made with delivery to a purchaser outside this State or when the sale is made to a person holding a valid license as a receiver. In addition, no fee shall be imposed upon diesel fuel or liquefied natural gas consumed or used in the operation of ships, barges, or vessels, that are used primarily in or for the transportation of property in interstate commerce for hire on rivers bordering on this State, if the diesel fuel or liquefied natural gas is delivered by a licensed receiver to the purchaser's barge, ship, or vessel while it is afloat upon that bordering river. A specific notation thereof shall be made on the invoices or sales slips covering each sale.
