Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
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 Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

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.

(Source: P.A. 92-13, eff. 6-22-01.)

30 ILCS 330/1.5

    (30 ILCS 330/1.5)
    Sec. 1.5. Re-enactment; findings; purpose; validation.
    (a) The General Assembly finds and declares that:
        (1) Article IV of Public Act 85-1135, effective July
    
28, 1988, contained provisions amending or creating Sections 2, 3, 16, and 20 of the General Obligation Bond Act, Section 5.242 of the State Finance Act, and Section 4 of the Baccalaureate Savings Act, all of which pertain to State general obligation bonds. These provisions (i) increased the total authorization for State of Illinois general obligation bonds and refunding bonds; (ii) increased the limits on the amount of State general obligation bond proceeds that may be used for various purposes; and (iii) created the General Obligation Bond Rebate Fund, authorized the transfer of money into that Fund, and provided an irrevocable continuing appropriation of amounts necessary to preserve the tax-free status of interest earned by owners of State general obligation bonds. Article IV also contained other provisions.
        (2) Section 8 of Article III of Public Act 85-1135,
    
effective September 1, 1988, contained provisions amending Sections 2, 4, 11, and 13 of the Build Illinois Bond Act. These provisions (i) increased the total authorization for Build Illinois bonds; (ii) increased the limits on the amount of Build Illinois bond proceeds that may be used for public infrastructure purposes; and (iii) amended the Build Illinois bond repayment schedules.
        (3) In addition, Public Act 85-1135 contained
    
provisions relating to tax reform and creating the Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund loan program.
        (4) On August 26, 1998, the Cook County Circuit Court
    
entered an order in the case of Oak Park Arms Associates v. Whitley (No. 92 L 51045), in which it found that Public Act 85-1135 violates the single subject clause of the Illinois Constitution (Article IV, Section 8(d)). However, on December 7, 1998, the Circuit Court granted Defendant's motion to reconsider and dismissed the Plaintiff's Single Subject claim with prejudice. Nevertheless, the Circuit Court did not vacate its August 26, 1998 order declaring P.A. 85-1135 to be in violation of the Single Subject clause of the Illinois Constitution. In addition, the Plaintiffs have appealed the Circuit Court's dismissal of their Single Subject claim.
        (5) The integrity of the State's contracts and bonds,
    
the protection of bondholders, and the State's continued ability to issue bonds and borrow money are of the greatest importance for the continued health, safety, and welfare of the people of this State.
        (6) The programs and projects funded with the
    
proceeds of State general obligation bonds and Build Illinois bonds affect many areas of vital concern to the people of this State. The disruption of those programs could constitute a grave threat to the continued health, safety, and welfare of the people of this State.
    (b) It is the purpose of this amendatory Act of 1999 to prevent or minimize any problems relating to State bonds that may result from challenges to the constitutional validity of Public Act 85-1135, by (1) re-enacting the Sections relating to State bonds that were included in Public Act 85-1135; (2) validating all Build Illinois bonds, State general obligation bonds, and refunding bonds issued pursuant to provisions contained in Public Act 85-1135; (3) affirming the State's obligations under those bonds and any contracts relating to them; and (4) validating all actions taken in reliance on the provisions contained in Public Act 85-1135 that relate to those bonds or their proceeds.
    (c) This amendatory Act of 1999 re-enacts Sections 2, 3, 16, and 20 of the General Obligation Bond Act, Section 5.242 of the State Finance Act, Sections 2, 4, 11, and 13 of the Build Illinois Bond Act, and Section 4 of the Baccalaureate Savings Act, as they have been amended. This re-enactment is intended to remove any question as to the validity or content of those Sections; it is not intended to supersede any other Public Act that amends the text of a Section as set forth in this amendatory Act. The material is shown as existing text (i.e., without underscoring) because, as of the time this amendatory Act of 1999 was prepared, the legal challenge to P.A. 85-1135 under the Single Subject clause of the Illinois Constitution was dismissed with prejudice.
    (d) The re-enactment by this amendatory Act of 1999 of certain Sections relating to State bonds that were enacted or amended by Public Act 85-1135 is not intended, and shall not be construed, to imply that P.A. 85-1135 is invalid or to limit or impair any legal argument concerning whether those provisions were substantially re-enacted by other Public Acts.
    (e) All Build Illinois bonds, State general obligation bonds, and refunding bonds issued before the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1999 in reliance on or pursuant to the Sections re-enacted by this amendatory Act of 1999, as set forth in Public Act 85-1135 or as subsequently amended, are hereby validated. All obligations of the State arising under or in connection with those bonds are hereby affirmed.
    (f) All otherwise lawful actions taken before the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1999 in reliance on or pursuant to the Sections re-enacted by this amendatory Act of 1999, as set forth in Public Act 85-1135 or as subsequently amended, by any officer, employee, or agency of State government or by any other person or entity, are hereby validated.
    (g) This amendatory Act of 1999 applies, without limitation, to actions pending on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act.

    Sec. 2. Authorization for Bonds. The State of Illinois is authorized to issue, sell and provide for the retirement of General Obligation Bonds of the State of Illinois for the categories and specific purposes expressed in Sections 2 through 8 of this Act, in the total amount of $55,917,925,743.
    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.

    Whenever any payment of required State contributions for State fiscal year 2004 is made to one of the designated retirement systems, the Comptroller and Treasurer shall, as soon as practicable, transfer from the Pension Contribution Fund to the General Revenue Fund an amount equal to the amount of that payment to the designated retirement system. Beginning on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 93rd General Assembly, the transfers from the Pension Contribution Fund to the General Revenue Fund shall be suspended until June 30, 2004, and the remaining balance in the Pension Contribution Fund shall be transferred directly to the designated retirement systems as provided in Section 6z-61 of the State Finance Act. On and after July 1, 2004, in the event that any amount is on deposit in the Pension Contribution Fund from time to time, the Comptroller and Treasurer shall continue to make such transfers based on fiscal year 2005 payments until the entire amount on deposit has been transferred.
    (d) All amounts deposited into the Pension Contribution Fund, other than the amounts reserved for the transfers under subsection (c) from the bond sale authorized by Public Act 93-2, other than amounts deposited into the Pension Contribution Fund from the bond sale authorized by Public Act 96-43 and other than amounts deposited into the Pension Contribution Fund from the bond sale authorized by this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly, shall be appropriated to the designated retirement systems to reduce their actuarial reserve deficiencies. The amount of the appropriation to each designated retirement system shall constitute a portion of the total appropriation under this subsection that is the same as that retirement system's portion of the total actuarial reserve deficiency of the systems, as most recently determined by the Governor's Office of Management and Budget under Section 8.12 of the State Finance Act.
    With respect to proceeds from the bond sale authorized by Public Act 93-2 only, within 15 days after any Bond proceeds in excess of the amounts initially reserved under subsection (c) are deposited into the Pension Contribution Fund, the Governor's Office of Management and Budget shall (i) allocate those proceeds among the designated retirement systems in proportion to their respective actuarial reserve deficiencies, as most recently determined under Section 8.12 of the State Finance Act, and (ii) certify those allocations to the designated retirement systems and the Comptroller.
    Upon receiving certification of an allocation under this subsection, a designated retirement system shall submit to the Comptroller a voucher for the amount of its allocation. The voucher shall be paid out of the amount appropriated to that designated retirement system from the Pension Contribution Fund pursuant to this subsection.

    (30 ILCS 330/8) (from Ch. 127, par. 658)
    Sec. 8. Bond sale expenses.
    (a) An amount not to exceed 0.5 percent of the principal amount of the proceeds of sale of each bond sale is authorized to be used to pay the reasonable costs of issuance and sale, including, without limitation, underwriter's discounts and fees, but excluding bond insurance, of State of Illinois general obligation bonds authorized and sold pursuant to this Act, provided that no salaries of State employees or other State office operating expenses shall be paid out of non-appropriated proceeds, provided further that the percent shall be 1.0% for each sale of "Build America Bonds" or "Qualified School Construction Bonds" as defined in subsections (d) and (e) of Section 9, respectively. The Governor's Office of Management and Budget shall compile a summary of all costs of issuance on each sale (including both costs paid out of proceeds and those paid out of appropriated funds) and post that summary on its web site within 20 business days after the issuance of the Bonds. The summary shall include, as applicable, the respective percentages of participation and compensation of each underwriter that is a member of the underwriting syndicate, legal counsel, financial advisors, and other professionals for the bond issue and an identification of all costs of issuance paid to minority-owned businesses, women-owned businesses, and businesses owned by persons with disabilities. The terms "minority-owned businesses", "women-owned businesses", and "business owned by a person with a disability" have the meanings given to those terms in the Business Enterprise for Minorities, Women, and Persons with Disabilities Act. That posting shall be maintained on the web site for a period of at least 30 days. In addition, the Governor's Office of Management and Budget shall provide a written copy of each summary of costs to the Speaker and Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, the President and Minority Leader of the Senate, and the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability within 20 business days after each issuance of the Bonds. In addition, the Governor's Office of Management and Budget shall provide copies of all contracts under which any costs of issuance are paid or to be paid to the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability within 20 business days after the issuance of Bonds for which those costs are paid or to be paid. Instead of filing a second or subsequent copy of the same contract, the Governor's Office of Management and Budget may file a statement that specified costs are paid under specified contracts filed earlier with the Commission.
    (b) The Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget shall not, in connection with the issuance of Bonds, contract with any underwriter, financial advisor, or attorney unless that underwriter, financial advisor, or attorney certifies that the underwriter, financial advisor, or attorney has not and will not pay a contingent fee, whether directly or indirectly, to a third party for having promoted the selection of the underwriter, financial advisor, or attorney for that contract. In the event that the Governor's Office of Management and Budget determines that an underwriter, financial advisor, or attorney has filed a false certification with respect to the payment of contingent fees, the Governor's Office of Management and Budget shall not contract with that underwriter, financial advisor, or attorney, or with any firm employing any person who signed false certifications, for a period of 2 calendar years, beginning with the date the determination is made. The validity of Bonds issued under such circumstances of violation pursuant to this Section shall not be affected.

    (Text of Section from P.A. 100-23, Article 25, Section 25-5)
    Sec. 9. Conditions for issuance and sale of Bonds - requirements for Bonds.
    (a) Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, Bonds shall be issued and sold from time to time, in one or more series, in such amounts and at such prices as may be directed by the Governor, upon recommendation by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget. Bonds shall be in such form (either coupon, registered or book entry), in such denominations, payable within 25 years from their date, subject to such terms of redemption with or without premium, bear interest payable at such times and at such fixed or variable rate or rates, and be dated as shall be fixed and determined by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget in the order authorizing the issuance and sale of any series of Bonds, which order shall be approved by the Governor and is herein called a "Bond Sale Order"; provided however, that interest payable at fixed or variable rates shall not exceed that permitted in the Bond Authorization Act, as now or hereafter amended. Bonds shall be payable at such place or places, within or without the State of Illinois, and may be made registrable as to either principal or as to both principal and interest, as shall be specified in the Bond Sale Order. Bonds may be callable or subject to purchase and retirement or tender and remarketing as fixed and determined in the Bond Sale Order. Bonds, other than Bonds issued under Section 3 of this Act for the costs associated with the purchase and implementation of information technology, (i) except for refunding Bonds satisfying the requirements of Section 16 of this Act and sold during fiscal year 2009, 2010, 2011, 2017, or 2018 must be issued with principal or mandatory redemption amounts in equal amounts, with the first maturity issued occurring within the fiscal year in which the Bonds are issued or within the next succeeding fiscal year and (ii) must mature or be subject to mandatory redemption each fiscal year thereafter up to 25 years, except for refunding Bonds satisfying the requirements of Section 16 of this Act and sold during fiscal year 2009, 2010, or 2011 which must mature or be subject to mandatory redemption each fiscal year thereafter up to 16 years. Bonds issued under Section 3 of this Act for the costs associated with the purchase and implementation of information technology must be issued with principal or mandatory redemption amounts in equal amounts, with the first maturity issued occurring with the fiscal year in which the respective bonds are issued or with the next succeeding fiscal year, with the respective bonds issued maturing or subject to mandatory redemption each fiscal year thereafter up to 10 years. Notwithstanding any provision of this Act to the contrary, the Bonds authorized by Public Act 96-43 shall be payable within 5 years from their date and must be issued with principal or mandatory redemption amounts in equal amounts, with payment of principal or mandatory redemption beginning in the first fiscal year following the fiscal year in which the Bonds are issued.
    Notwithstanding any provision of this Act to the contrary, the Bonds authorized by Public Act 96-1497 shall be payable within 8 years from their date and shall be issued with payment of maturing principal or scheduled mandatory redemptions in accordance with the following schedule, except the following amounts shall be prorated if less than the total additional amount of Bonds authorized by Public Act 96-1497 are issued:
    Fiscal Year After Issuance    Amount
        1-2                        $0 
        3                          $110,712,120
        4                          $332,136,360
        5                          $664,272,720
        6-8                        $996,409,080
    In the case of any series of Bonds bearing interest at a variable interest rate ("Variable Rate Bonds"), in lieu of determining the rate or rates at which such series of Variable Rate Bonds shall bear interest and the price or prices at which such Variable Rate Bonds shall be initially sold or remarketed (in the event of purchase and subsequent resale), the Bond Sale Order may provide that such interest rates and prices may vary from time to time depending on criteria established in such Bond Sale Order, which criteria may include, without limitation, references to indices or variations in interest rates as may, in the judgment of a remarketing agent, be necessary to cause Variable Rate Bonds of such series to be remarketable from time to time at a price equal to their principal amount, and may provide for appointment of a bank, trust company, investment bank, or other financial institution to serve as remarketing agent in that connection. The Bond Sale Order may provide that alternative interest rates or provisions for establishing alternative interest rates, different security or claim priorities, or different call or amortization provisions will apply during such times as Variable Rate Bonds of any series are held by a person providing credit or liquidity enhancement arrangements for such Bonds as authorized in subsection (b) of this Section. The Bond Sale Order may also provide for such variable interest rates to be established pursuant to a process generally known as an auction rate process and may provide for appointment of one or more financial institutions to serve as auction agents and broker-dealers in connection with the establishment of such interest rates and the sale and remarketing of such Bonds.
    (b) In connection with the issuance of any series of Bonds, the State may enter into arrangements to provide additional security and liquidity for such Bonds, including, without limitation, bond or interest rate insurance or letters of credit, lines of credit, bond purchase contracts, or other arrangements whereby funds are made available to retire or purchase Bonds, thereby assuring the ability of owners of the Bonds to sell or redeem their Bonds. The State may enter into contracts and may agree to pay fees to persons providing such arrangements, but only under circumstances where the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget certifies that he or she reasonably expects the total interest paid or to be paid on the Bonds, together with the fees for the arrangements (being treated as if interest), would not, taken together, cause the Bonds to bear interest, calculated to their stated maturity, at a rate in excess of the rate that the Bonds would bear in the absence of such arrangements.
    The State may, with respect to Bonds issued or anticipated to be issued, participate in and enter into arrangements with respect to interest rate protection or exchange agreements, guarantees, or financial futures contracts for the purpose of limiting, reducing, or managing interest rate exposure. The authority granted under this paragraph, however, shall not increase the principal amount of Bonds authorized to be issued by law. The arrangements may be executed and delivered by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget on behalf of the State. Net payments for such arrangements shall constitute interest on the Bonds and shall be paid from the General Obligation Bond Retirement and Interest Fund. The Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget shall at least annually certify to the Governor and the State Comptroller his or her estimate of the amounts of such net payments to be included in the calculation of interest required to be paid by the State.
    (c) Prior to the issuance of any Variable Rate Bonds pursuant to subsection (a), the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget shall adopt an interest rate risk management policy providing that the amount of the State's variable rate exposure with respect to Bonds shall not exceed 20%. This policy shall remain in effect while any Bonds are outstanding and the issuance of Bonds shall be subject to the terms of such policy. The terms of this policy may be amended from time to time by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget but in no event shall any amendment cause the permitted level of the State's variable rate exposure with respect to Bonds to exceed 20%.
    (d) "Build America Bonds" in this Section means Bonds authorized by Section 54AA of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended ("Internal Revenue Code"), and bonds issued from time to time to refund or continue to refund "Build America Bonds".
    (e) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section, Qualified School Construction Bonds shall be issued and sold from time to time, in one or more series, in such amounts and at such prices as may be directed by the Governor, upon recommendation by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget. Qualified School Construction Bonds shall be in such form (either coupon, registered or book entry), in such denominations, payable within 25 years from their date, subject to such terms of redemption with or without premium, and if the Qualified School Construction Bonds are issued with a supplemental coupon, bear interest payable at such times and at such fixed or variable rate or rates, and be dated as shall be fixed and determined by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget in the order authorizing the issuance and sale of any series of Qualified School Construction Bonds, which order shall be approved by the Governor and is herein called a "Bond Sale Order"; except that interest payable at fixed or variable rates, if any, shall not exceed that permitted in the Bond Authorization Act, as now or hereafter amended. Qualified School Construction Bonds shall be payable at such place or places, within or without the State of Illinois, and may be made registrable as to either principal or as to both principal and interest, as shall be specified in the Bond Sale Order. Qualified School Construction Bonds may be callable or subject to purchase and retirement or tender and remarketing as fixed and determined in the Bond Sale Order. Qualified School Construction Bonds must be issued with principal or mandatory redemption amounts or sinking fund payments into the General Obligation Bond Retirement and Interest Fund (or subaccount therefor) in equal amounts, with the first maturity issued, mandatory redemption payment or sinking fund payment occurring within the fiscal year in which the Qualified School Construction Bonds are issued or within the next succeeding fiscal year, with Qualified School Construction Bonds issued maturing or subject to mandatory redemption or with sinking fund payments thereof deposited each fiscal year thereafter up to 25 years. Sinking fund payments set forth in this subsection shall be permitted only to the extent authorized in Section 54F of the Internal Revenue Code or as otherwise determined by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget. "Qualified School Construction Bonds" in this subsection means Bonds authorized by Section 54F of the Internal Revenue Code and for bonds issued from time to time to refund or continue to refund such "Qualified School Construction Bonds".
    (f) Beginning with the next issuance by the Governor's Office of Management and Budget to the Procurement Policy Board of a request for quotation for the purpose of formulating a new pool of qualified underwriting banks list, all entities responding to such a request for quotation for inclusion on that list shall provide a written report to the Governor's Office of Management and Budget and the Illinois Comptroller.

    (a) Except as otherwise provided in this subsection and subsection (h), Bonds shall be issued and sold from time to time, in one or more series, in such amounts and at such prices as may be directed by the Governor, upon recommendation by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget. Bonds shall be in such form (either coupon, registered or book entry), in such denominations, payable within 25 years from their date, subject to such terms of redemption with or without premium, bear interest payable at such times and at such fixed or variable rate or rates, and be dated as shall be fixed and determined by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget in the order authorizing the issuance and sale of any series of Bonds, which order shall be approved by the Governor and is herein called a "Bond Sale Order"; provided however, that interest payable at fixed or variable rates shall not exceed that permitted in the Bond Authorization Act, as now or hereafter amended. Bonds shall be payable at such place or places, within or without the State of Illinois, and may be made registrable as to either principal or as to both principal and interest, as shall be specified in the Bond Sale Order. Bonds may be callable or subject to purchase and retirement or tender and remarketing as fixed and determined in the Bond Sale Order. Bonds, other than Bonds issued under Section 3 of this Act for the costs associated with the purchase and implementation of information technology, (i) except for refunding Bonds satisfying the requirements of Section 16 of this Act and sold during fiscal year 2009, 2010, 2011, or 2017 must be issued with principal or mandatory redemption amounts in equal amounts, with the first maturity issued occurring within the fiscal year in which the Bonds are issued or within the next succeeding fiscal year and (ii) must mature or be subject to mandatory redemption each fiscal year thereafter up to 25 years, except for refunding Bonds satisfying the requirements of Section 16 of this Act and sold during fiscal year 2009, 2010, or 2011 which must mature or be subject to mandatory redemption each fiscal year thereafter up to 16 years. Bonds issued under Section 3 of this Act for the costs associated with the purchase and implementation of information technology must be issued with principal or mandatory redemption amounts in equal amounts, with the first maturity issued occurring with the fiscal year in which the respective bonds are issued or with the next succeeding fiscal year, with the respective bonds issued maturing or subject to mandatory redemption each fiscal year thereafter up to 10 years. Notwithstanding any provision of this Act to the contrary, the Bonds authorized by Public Act 96-43 shall be payable within 5 years from their date and must be issued with principal or mandatory redemption amounts in equal amounts, with payment of principal or mandatory redemption beginning in the first fiscal year following the fiscal year in which the Bonds are issued.
    Notwithstanding any provision of this Act to the contrary, the Bonds authorized by Public Act 96-1497 shall be payable within 8 years from their date and shall be issued with payment of maturing principal or scheduled mandatory redemptions in accordance with the following schedule, except the following amounts shall be prorated if less than the total additional amount of Bonds authorized by Public Act 96-1497 are issued:
    Fiscal Year After Issuance    Amount
        1-2                        $0 
        3                          $110,712,120
        4                          $332,136,360
        5                          $664,272,720
        6-8                        $996,409,080
    Notwithstanding any provision of this Act to the contrary, Income Tax Proceed Bonds issued under Section 7.6 shall be payable 12 years from the date of sale and shall be issued with payment of principal or mandatory redemption.
    In the case of any series of Bonds bearing interest at a variable interest rate ("Variable Rate Bonds"), in lieu of determining the rate or rates at which such series of Variable Rate Bonds shall bear interest and the price or prices at which such Variable Rate Bonds shall be initially sold or remarketed (in the event of purchase and subsequent resale), the Bond Sale Order may provide that such interest rates and prices may vary from time to time depending on criteria established in such Bond Sale Order, which criteria may include, without limitation, references to indices or variations in interest rates as may, in the judgment of a remarketing agent, be necessary to cause Variable Rate Bonds of such series to be remarketable from time to time at a price equal to their principal amount, and may provide for appointment of a bank, trust company, investment bank, or other financial institution to serve as remarketing agent in that connection. The Bond Sale Order may provide that alternative interest rates or provisions for establishing alternative interest rates, different security or claim priorities, or different call or amortization provisions will apply during such times as Variable Rate Bonds of any series are held by a person providing credit or liquidity enhancement arrangements for such Bonds as authorized in subsection (b) of this Section. The Bond Sale Order may also provide for such variable interest rates to be established pursuant to a process generally known as an auction rate process and may provide for appointment of one or more financial institutions to serve as auction agents and broker-dealers in connection with the establishment of such interest rates and the sale and remarketing of such Bonds.
    (b) In connection with the issuance of any series of Bonds, the State may enter into arrangements to provide additional security and liquidity for such Bonds, including, without limitation, bond or interest rate insurance or letters of credit, lines of credit, bond purchase contracts, or other arrangements whereby funds are made available to retire or purchase Bonds, thereby assuring the ability of owners of the Bonds to sell or redeem their Bonds. The State may enter into contracts and may agree to pay fees to persons providing such arrangements, but only under circumstances where the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget certifies that he or she reasonably expects the total interest paid or to be paid on the Bonds, together with the fees for the arrangements (being treated as if interest), would not, taken together, cause the Bonds to bear interest, calculated to their stated maturity, at a rate in excess of the rate that the Bonds would bear in the absence of such arrangements.
    The State may, with respect to Bonds issued or anticipated to be issued, participate in and enter into arrangements with respect to interest rate protection or exchange agreements, guarantees, or financial futures contracts for the purpose of limiting, reducing, or managing interest rate exposure. The authority granted under this paragraph, however, shall not increase the principal amount of Bonds authorized to be issued by law. The arrangements may be executed and delivered by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget on behalf of the State. Net payments for such arrangements shall constitute interest on the Bonds and shall be paid from the General Obligation Bond Retirement and Interest Fund. The Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget shall at least annually certify to the Governor and the State Comptroller his or her estimate of the amounts of such net payments to be included in the calculation of interest required to be paid by the State.
    (c) Prior to the issuance of any Variable Rate Bonds pursuant to subsection (a), the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget shall adopt an interest rate risk management policy providing that the amount of the State's variable rate exposure with respect to Bonds shall not exceed 20%. This policy shall remain in effect while any Bonds are outstanding and the issuance of Bonds shall be subject to the terms of such policy. The terms of this policy may be amended from time to time by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget but in no event shall any amendment cause the permitted level of the State's variable rate exposure with respect to Bonds to exceed 20%.
    (d) "Build America Bonds" in this Section means Bonds authorized by Section 54AA of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended ("Internal Revenue Code"), and bonds issued from time to time to refund or continue to refund "Build America Bonds".
    (e) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section, Qualified School Construction Bonds shall be issued and sold from time to time, in one or more series, in such amounts and at such prices as may be directed by the Governor, upon recommendation by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget. Qualified School Construction Bonds shall be in such form (either coupon, registered or book entry), in such denominations, payable within 25 years from their date, subject to such terms of redemption with or without premium, and if the Qualified School Construction Bonds are issued with a supplemental coupon, bear interest payable at such times and at such fixed or variable rate or rates, and be dated as shall be fixed and determined by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget in the order authorizing the issuance and sale of any series of Qualified School Construction Bonds, which order shall be approved by the Governor and is herein called a "Bond Sale Order"; except that interest payable at fixed or variable rates, if any, shall not exceed that permitted in the Bond Authorization Act, as now or hereafter amended. Qualified School Construction Bonds shall be payable at such place or places, within or without the State of Illinois, and may be made registrable as to either principal or as to both principal and interest, as shall be specified in the Bond Sale Order. Qualified School Construction Bonds may be callable or subject to purchase and retirement or tender and remarketing as fixed and determined in the Bond Sale Order. Qualified School Construction Bonds must be issued with principal or mandatory redemption amounts or sinking fund payments into the General Obligation Bond Retirement and Interest Fund (or subaccount therefor) in equal amounts, with the first maturity issued, mandatory redemption payment or sinking fund payment occurring within the fiscal year in which the Qualified School Construction Bonds are issued or within the next succeeding fiscal year, with Qualified School Construction Bonds issued maturing or subject to mandatory redemption or with sinking fund payments thereof deposited each fiscal year thereafter up to 25 years.

    Sec. 15. Computation of Principal and Interest; transfers.
    (a) Upon each delivery of Bonds authorized to be issued under this Act, the Comptroller shall compute and certify to the Treasurer the total amount of principal of, interest on, and premium, if any, on Bonds issued that will be payable in order to retire such Bonds, the amount of principal of, interest on and premium, if any, on such Bonds that will be payable on each payment date according to the tenor of such Bonds during the then current and each succeeding fiscal year, and the amount of sinking fund payments needed to be deposited in connection with Qualified School Construction Bonds authorized by subsection (e) of Section 9. 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 such period pursuant to subsection (c) of Section 14 of this Act. With respect to the interest payable, such certifications shall include the amounts certified by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget under subsection (b) of Section 9 of this Act.
    On or before the last day of each month the State Treasurer and Comptroller shall transfer from (1) the Road Fund with respect to Bonds issued under paragraph (a) of Section 4 of this Act, or Bonds issued under authorization in Public Act 98-781, or Bonds issued for the purpose of refunding such bonds, and from (2) the General Revenue Fund, with respect to all other Bonds issued under this Act, 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 Bonds payable, by their terms on the next payment date divided by the number of full calendar months between the date of such Bonds and the first such payment date, and thereafter, divided by the number of months between each succeeding payment date after the first. Such computations and transfers shall be made for each series of Bonds issued and delivered. 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 such period pursuant to subsection (c) of Section 14 of this Act. Computations of interest shall include the amounts certified by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget under subsection (b) of Section 9 of this Act. 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. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Section, the transfer provisions provided in this paragraph shall not apply to transfers made in fiscal year 2010 or fiscal year 2011 with respect to Bonds issued in fiscal year 2010 or fiscal year 2011 pursuant to Section 7.2 of this Act. In the case of transfers made in fiscal year 2010 or fiscal year 2011 with respect to the Bonds issued in fiscal year 2010 or fiscal year 2011 pursuant to Section 7.2 of this Act, on or before the 15th day of the month prior to the required debt service payment, the State Treasurer and Comptroller shall transfer from the General Revenue 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 in that next month.
    The transfer of monies herein and above directed is not required if monies in the General Obligation Bond Retirement and Interest Fund are more than the amount otherwise to be transferred as herein above provided, and if the Governor or his authorized representative notifies the State Treasurer and Comptroller of such fact in writing.
    (b) After the effective date of this Act, the balance of, and monies directed to be included in the Capital Development Bond Retirement and Interest Fund, Anti-Pollution Bond Retirement and Interest Fund, Transportation Bond, Series A Retirement and Interest Fund, Transportation Bond, Series B Retirement and Interest Fund, and Coal Development Bond Retirement and Interest Fund shall be transferred to and deposited in the General Obligation Bond Retirement and Interest Fund. This Fund shall be used to make debt service payments on the State's general obligation Bonds heretofore issued which are now outstanding and payable from the Funds herein listed as well as on Bonds issued under this Act.
    (c) The unused portion of federal funds received for a capital facilities project, as authorized by Section 3 of this Act, for which monies from the Capital Development Fund have been expended shall remain in the Capital Development Board Contributory Trust Fund and shall be used for capital projects and for no other purpose, subject to appropriation and as directed by the Capital Development Board. Any federal funds received as reimbursement for the completed construction of a capital facilities project, as authorized by Section 3 of this Act, for which monies from the Capital Development Fund have been expended shall be deposited in the General Obligation Bond Retirement and Interest Fund.

The State of Illinois is authorized to issue, sell, and provide for the retirement of General Obligation Bonds of the State of Illinois in the amount of $4,839,025,000, at any time and from time to time outstanding, for the purpose of refunding any State of Illinois general obligation Bonds then outstanding, including the payment of any redemption premium thereon, any reasonable expenses of such refunding, any interest accrued or to accrue to the earliest or any subsequent date of redemption or maturity of such outstanding Bonds and any interest to accrue to the first interest payment on the refunding Bonds; provided that all non-refunding Bonds in an issue that includes refunding Bonds shall mature no later than the final maturity date of Bonds being refunded; provided that no refunding Bonds shall be offered for sale unless the net present value of debt service savings to be achieved by the issuance of the refunding Bonds is 3% or more of the principal amount of the refunding Bonds to be issued; and further provided that, except for refunding Bonds sold in fiscal year 2009, 2010, 2011, 2017, or 2018, the maturities of the refunding Bonds shall not extend beyond the maturities of the Bonds they refund, so that for each fiscal year in the maturity schedule of a particular issue of refunding Bonds, the total amount of refunding principal maturing and redemption amounts due in that fiscal year and all prior fiscal years in that schedule shall be greater than or equal to the total amount of refunded principal and redemption amounts that had been due over that year and all prior fiscal years prior to the refunding.
     The Governor shall notify the State Treasurer and Comptroller of such refunding. The proceeds received from the sale of refunding Bonds shall be used for the retirement at maturity or redemption of such outstanding Bonds on any maturity or redemption date and, pending such use, shall be placed in escrow, subject to such terms and conditions as shall be provided for in the Bond Sale Order relating to the Refunding Bonds. Proceeds not needed for deposit in an escrow account shall be deposited in the General Obligation Bond Retirement and Interest Fund. This Act shall constitute an irrevocable and continuing appropriation of all amounts necessary to establish an escrow account for the purpose of refunding outstanding general obligation Bonds and to pay the reasonable expenses of such refunding and of the issuance and sale of the refunding Bonds. Any such escrowed proceeds may be invested and reinvested in direct obligations of the United States of America, maturing at such time or times as shall be appropriate to assure the prompt payment, when due, of the principal of and interest and redemption premium, if any, on the refunded Bonds. After the terms of the escrow have been fully satisfied, any remaining balance of such proceeds and interest, income and profits earned or realized on the investments thereof shall be paid into the General Revenue Fund. The liability of the State upon the Bonds shall continue, provided that the holders thereof shall thereafter be entitled to payment only out of the moneys deposited in the escrow account.
    Except as otherwise herein provided in this Section, such refunding Bonds shall in all other respects be subject to the terms and conditions of this Act.

Delivery of a summons and a copy of the complaint to the Attorney General shall constitute sufficient service to give the Supreme Court of Illinois jurisdiction of the subject matter of such a suit and jurisdiction over the State and its officers named as defendants for the purpose of compelling such payment. Any case, controversy or cause of action concerning the validity of this Act relates to the revenue of the State of Illinois.
