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.

30 ILCS 425/3

    (30 ILCS 425/3) (from Ch. 127, par. 2803)
    Sec. 3. Findings. The General Assembly hereby makes the following findings and determinations:
    (a) The issuance and sale of Bonds pursuant to this Act is an economical and efficient method of financing long-term capital needs, including certain of the purposes of the State, as set forth in Section 4 hereof.
    (b) This Act will permit the issuance of Bonds, from time to time, for various purposes and with varying terms, features and conditions in order to enhance marketability and lower interest costs incurred by the State. Subsection (a) of Section 6 of this Act authorizes the issuance, from time to time, of Bonds in one or more series, in such principal amounts, bearing interest at such fixed rates or variable rates and having such other terms and provisions as designated State officers may fix and determine pursuant to the authority delegated under this Act. Subsection (b) of Section 6 of this Act authorizes, in connection with the issuance of and as security for any series of Bonds, the purchase of bond or interest rate insurance, the establishment of credit and liquidity enhancement arrangements with financial institutions, and participation in interest rate swaps or guarantee agreements or other arrangements to limit interest rate risk.
    (c) The financing of the facilities and other purposes described in Section 4 of this Act through the issuance of Bonds will involve numerous expenditures over extended periods of time, all of which expenditures shall be made only pursuant to and in conformity with appropriations from Bond proceeds by the General Assembly prior to the making of such expenditures.
    (d) Determinations with respect to (i) advantageous timing and amounts of such expenditures for particular approved facilities or purposes, (ii) establishing an advantageous mix of short-term and long-term debt instruments under bond market conditions prevailing from time to time, and (iii) specific allocations of Bond proceeds to particular facilities and purposes should be based upon financial, engineering and construction management judgments made from time to time.
    (e) The State's ability to issue Bonds from time to time, without further action by the General Assembly, in separate series, in various principal amounts and with various interest rates, maturities, redemption provisions and other terms will enhance the State's opportunities to obtain such financing as needed, upon favorable terms.
    In order to provide for flexibility in meeting the financial, engineering and construction needs of the State and its agencies and departments and in order to provide continuing and adequate financing for the aforesaid purposes on favorable terms, the delegations of authority to the Governor, the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget, the State Comptroller, the State Treasurer and other officers of the State which are contained in this Act are necessary and desirable because this General Assembly cannot itself as understandingly, advantageously, expeditiously or conveniently exercise such authority and make such specific determinations.

    (30 ILCS 425/5) (from Ch. 127, par. 2805)
    Sec. 5. Bond Sale Expenses.
    (a) An amount not to exceed 0.5% of the principal amount of the proceeds of the sale of each bond sale is authorized to be used to pay reasonable costs of each issuance and sale of Bonds authorized and sold pursuant to this Act, including, without limitation, underwriter's discounts and fees, but excluding bond insurance, advertising, printing, bond rating, travel of outside vendors, security, delivery, legal and financial advisory services, initial fees of trustees, registrars, paying agents and other fiduciaries, initial costs of credit or liquidity enhancement arrangements, initial fees of indexing and remarketing agents, and initial costs of interest rate swaps, guarantees or arrangements to limit interest rate risk, as determined in the related Bond Sale Order, from the proceeds of each Bond sale, provided that no salaries of State employees or other State office operating expenses shall be paid out of non-appropriated proceeds, and provided further that the percent shall be 1.0% for each sale of "Build America Bonds" as defined in subsection (c) of Section 6. 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. 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. This summary shall include, as applicable, the respective percentage 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, female owned businesses, and businesses owned by persons with disabilities. The terms "minority owned businesses", "female owned businesses", and "business owned by a person with a disability" have the meanings given to those terms in the Business Enterprise for Minorities, Females, and Persons with Disabilities Act. 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 any 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.

    (30 ILCS 425/6) (from Ch. 127, par. 2806)
    Sec. 6. Conditions for Issuance and Sale of Bonds - Requirements for Bonds - Master and Supplemental Indentures - Credit and Liquidity Enhancement.
    (a) Bonds shall be issued and sold from time to time, in one or more series, in such amounts and at such prices as directed by the Governor, upon recommendation by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget. Bonds shall be payable only from the specific sources and secured in the manner provided in this Act. Bonds shall be in such form, in such denominations, mature on such dates within 25 years from their date of issuance, be subject to optional or mandatory redemption, bear interest payable at such times and at such rate or rates, fixed or variable, and be dated as shall be fixed and determined by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget in an 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 rates shall not exceed that permitted in "An Act to authorize public corporations to issue bonds, other evidences of indebtedness and tax anticipation warrants subject to interest rate limitations set forth therein", approved May 26, 1970, as now or hereafter amended, and interest payable at variable rates shall not exceed the maximum rate permitted in the Bond Sale Order. Said 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 only 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 remarketing as fixed and determined in the Bond Sale Order. Bonds (i) except for refunding Bonds satisfying the requirements of Section 15 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 15 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.
    All Bonds authorized under this Act shall be issued pursuant to a master trust indenture ("Master Indenture") executed and delivered on behalf of the State by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget, such Master Indenture to be in substantially the form approved in the Bond Sale Order authorizing the issuance and sale of the initial series of Bonds issued under this Act. Such initial series of Bonds may, and each subsequent series of Bonds shall, also be issued pursuant to a supplemental trust indenture ("Supplemental Indenture") executed and delivered on behalf of the State by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget, each such Supplemental Indenture to be in substantially the form approved in the Bond Sale Order relating to such series. The Master Indenture and any Supplemental Indenture shall be entered into with a bank or trust company in the State of Illinois having trust powers and possessing capital and surplus of not less than $100,000,000. Such indentures shall set forth the terms and conditions of the Bonds and provide for payment of and security for the Bonds, including the establishment and maintenance of debt service and reserve funds, and for other protections for holders of the Bonds. The term "reserve funds" as used in this Act shall include funds and accounts established under indentures to provide for the payment of principal of and premium and interest on Bonds, to provide for the purchase, retirement or defeasance of Bonds, to provide for fees of trustees, registrars, paying agents and other fiduciaries and to provide for payment of costs of and debt service payable in respect of credit or liquidity enhancement arrangements, interest rate swaps or guarantees or financial futures contracts and indexing and remarketing agents' services.
    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 Bonds of such series to be remarketable from time to time at a price equal to their principal amount (or compound accreted value in the case of original issue discount Bonds), and may provide for appointment of indexing agents and 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 Bonds of any series are held by a person providing credit or liquidity enhancement arrangements for such Bonds as authorized in subsection (b) of Section 6 of this Act.
    (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 Bureau of the Budget (now Governor's Office of Management and Budget) certifies that he 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 which the Bonds would bear in the absence of such arrangements. Any bonds, notes or other evidences of indebtedness issued pursuant to any such arrangements for the purpose of retiring and discharging outstanding Bonds shall constitute refunding Bonds under Section 15 of this Act. The State may participate in and enter into arrangements with respect to interest rate swaps or guarantees or financial futures contracts for the purpose of limiting or restricting interest rate risk; provided that such arrangements shall be made with or executed through banks having capital and surplus of not less than $100,000,000 or insurance companies holding the highest policyholder rating accorded insurers by A.M. Best & Co. or any comparable rating service or government bond dealers reporting to, trading with, and recognized as primary dealers by a Federal Reserve Bank and having capital and surplus of not less than $100,000,000, or other persons whose debt securities are rated in the highest long-term categories by both Moody's Investors' Services, Inc. and Standard & Poor's Corporation. Agreements incorporating any of the foregoing arrangements may be executed and delivered by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget on behalf of the State in substantially the form approved in the Bond Sale Order relating to such Bonds.
    (c) "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".

    (30 ILCS 425/7) (from Ch. 127, par. 2807)
    Sec. 7. Execution of Bonds. Bonds shall be signed by the Governor and attested by the Secretary of State under the printed facsimile seal of the State and countersigned by the State Treasurer by his manual signature or by his duly authorized deputy. If Bonds are issued in registered form pursuant to the Registered Bond Act, the signatures of the Governor, the Secretary of State and the State Treasurer may be printed facsimile signatures. The Master Indenture or any Supplemental Indenture may also require that each Bond be authenticated by the manual signature of the trustee thereunder or of a registrar or paying agent. Unless Bonds are issued in fully registered form, interest coupons with facsimile signatures of the Governor, Secretary of State and State Treasurer may be attached to the Bonds. The fact that an officer whose signature or facsimile thereof appears on a Bond, interest coupon, indenture or agreement authorized under this Act no longer holds such office at the time the Bond, coupon, indenture or agreement is delivered shall not invalidate such Bond, coupon, indenture or agreement.

The sale of the Bonds shall also be advertised in the volume of the Illinois Procurement Bulletin that is published by the Department of Central Management Services, and shall be published once at least 10 days prior to the date fixed for the opening of the bids. The Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget may reschedule the date of sale upon the giving of such additional notice as the Director deems adequate to inform prospective bidders of the change; provided, however, that all other conditions of the sale shall continue as originally advertised. Executed Bonds shall, upon payment therefor, be delivered to the purchaser, and the proceeds of Bonds shall be paid into the State Treasury as directed by Section 9 of this Act.

Any action authorized or permitted to be taken by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget pursuant to this Act is hereby authorized to be taken by any person specifically designated by the Governor to take such action in a certificate signed by the Governor and filed with the Secretary of State.

Amounts included in these disclosures as payments of interest shall include those amounts paid pursuant to arrangements authorized pursuant to subsection (b) of Section 6 of this Act.

The Governor, on behalf of the State, is authorized to direct the trustee under the Master Indenture securing the outstanding Bonds to pay to the General Revenue Fund on June 15, 1994, and each June 15th thereafter, all of the moneys on deposit in the General Reserve Fund held under the Master Indenture for the purpose of making distributive school aid payments in accordance with Section 18-11 of the School Code; provided that such direction shall be in compliance with the Master Indenture. All Bonds issued in accordance with this Act shall be direct, limited obligations of the State of Illinois payable solely from and secured by an irrevocable, first priority pledge of and lien on moneys on deposit in (a) the Build Illinois Bond Retirement and Interest Fund and (b) any fund or account maintained pursuant to any trust indenture securing any Bonds to the extent so provided in such indenture; provided, however, that Bonds of any series may be secured on a parity basis with, or on a senior or junior basis with respect to, any other series of Bonds as provided in the Bond Sale Order and trust indenture relating to such series. The State of Illinois hereby pledges the tax revenues and other moneys from whatever source which by law are required to be deposited into the Build Illinois Fund for the purposes of making transfers to and payments from the Build Illinois Bond Retirement and Interest Fund as required by Sections 6z-9 and 8.25 of the Finance Act, such pledge constituting a first and prior claim against and charge on such tax revenues and other moneys. The Bonds are not general obligations of the State and are not secured by a pledge of the full faith and credit of the State and, except as specifically provided in this Act and Sections 6z-9 and 8.25 of the Finance Act, the holders of Bonds may not require the levy or imposition of any taxes or the application of other State revenues or funds to the payment of Bonds. Each Bond shall describe the limited nature of the State's obligation on the face thereof. The Bonds shall be securities appropriate and acceptable for collateral as described in Section 6 of "An Act relating to certain investments of public funds by public agencies", approved July 23, 1943, as amended, or in any similar act providing for the collateralization of public funds.
    The Bonds are hereby made securities in which all public officers and bodies of the State and all political subdivisions of the State and other persons carrying on an insurance business, all banks, bankers, trust companies, saving banks and savings associations, including savings and loan associations, building and loan associations, investment companies and other persons carrying on a banking business, all credit unions, pension funds, administrators, and guardians who are now or may hereafter be authorized to invest in bonds or in other obligations of the State, may properly and legally invest funds, including capital, in their control or belonging to them. The Bonds are also hereby made securities which may be deposited with and may be received by all public officers and bodies of the State and all political subdivisions of the State and public corporations for any purpose for which the deposit of bonds or other obligations of the State is now or may hereafter be authorized.

Upon each delivery of Bonds authorized to be issued under this Act, the trustee under the Master Indenture shall compute and certify to the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget, the Comptroller and the Treasurer (a) the total amount of the principal of and the interest and the premium, if any, on the Bonds then being issued and on Bonds previously issued and outstanding that will be payable in order to retire such Bonds at their stated maturities or mandatory sinking fund payment dates and (b) the amount of principal of and interest and premium, if any, on such Bonds that will be payable on each principal, interest and mandatory sinking fund payment date according to the tenor of such Bonds during the then current and each succeeding fiscal year.

If Bonds are issued subsequent to the delivery of any such certificate, upon the issuance of such Bonds the trustee under the Master Indenture shall deliver a supplemental certificate setting forth the revisions, if any, in the Certified Annual Debt Service Requirement resulting from the issuance of such Bonds. The "Certified Annual Debt Service Requirement" for any fiscal year shall be an amount equal to (a) the aggregate amount of principal, interest and premium, if any, payable on outstanding Bonds during such fiscal year plus (b) the amount required to be deposited into any reserve fund securing such Bonds or for the purpose of retiring or defeasing such Bonds plus (c) the amount of any deficiencies in required transfers of amounts described in clauses (a) and (b) for any prior fiscal year, minus (d) the amount, if any, of such interest to be paid from Bond proceeds on deposit under any indenture; provided, however, that interest payable on Variable Rate Bonds shall be calculated at the maximum rate of interest which may be payable during such fiscal year after taking into account any credits permitted in the related indenture against the amount of such interest required to be appropriated for such period pursuant to subsection (c) of Section 11 of this Act.

    (30 ILCS 425/15) (from Ch. 127, par. 2815)
    Sec. 15. Refunding Bonds. Refunding Bonds are hereby authorized for the purpose of refunding any outstanding Bonds, including the payment of any redemption premium thereon, any reasonable expenses of such refunding, and any interest accrued or to accrue to the earliest or any subsequent date of redemption or maturity of outstanding 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, or 2017, 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.
    Refunding Bonds may be sold in such amounts and at such times, as directed by the Governor upon recommendation by the Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget. 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. This Act shall constitute an irrevocable and continuing appropriation of all amounts necessary to establish an escrow account for the purpose of refunding outstanding 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 refunded Bonds shall continue, provided that the holders thereof shall thereafter be entitled to payment only out of the moneys deposited in the escrow account and the refunded Bonds shall be deemed paid, discharged and no longer to be outstanding.
    Except as otherwise herein provided in this Section, such refunding Bonds shall in all other respects be issued pursuant to and subject to the terms and conditions of this Act and shall be secured by and payable from only the funds and sources which are provided under this Act.

    Sec. 16. Compel Payment - Remedies of Bondholders. If the State fails to pay the principal of or interest on any of the Bonds or premium, if any, as the same become due, a civil action to compel payment may be instituted in the Supreme Court of Illinois as a court of original jurisdiction by the holder or holders of the Bonds on which such default of payment exists or by an indenture trustee acting on behalf of such holders. 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.
    If the Supreme Court of Illinois denies the holder or holders of Bonds or an indenture trustee acting on their behalf leave to file an original action in the Supreme Court, the Bond holder or holders or such indenture trustee may bring the action in the Circuit Court of Sangamon County.
