Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

The State of Illinois is authorized to

the State of Illinois for the categories and specific purposes expressed in
Sections 2 through 8 of this Act, in the total amount of $49,317,925,743.
The bonds authorized in this Section 2 and in Section 16 of this Act are
herein called "Bonds".
Of the total amount of Bonds authorized in this Act, up to $2,200,000,000
in aggregate original principal amount may be issued and sold in accordance
with the Baccalaureate Savings Act in the form of General Obligation
College Savings Bonds.
Of the total amount of Bonds authorized in this Act, up to $300,000,000 in
aggregate original principal amount may be issued and sold in accordance
with the Retirement Savings Act in the form of General Obligation
Retirement Savings Bonds.
Of the total amount of Bonds authorized in this Act, the additional
$10,000,000,000 authorized by Public Act 93-2, the $3,466,000,000 authorized by Public Act 96-43, and the $4,096,348,300 authorized by Public Act 96-1497 shall be used solely as provided in Section 7.2.
The issuance and sale of Bonds pursuant to the General Obligation Bond
Act is an economical and efficient method of financing the long-term capital needs of
the State. This Act will permit the issuance of a multi-purpose General
Obligation Bond with uniform terms and features. This will not only lower
the cost of registration but also reduce the overall cost of issuing debt
by improving the marketability of Illinois General Obligation Bonds.
