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.

50 ILCS 20/2

    (50 ILCS 20/2) (from Ch. 85, par. 1032)
    Sec. 2. It is hereby found and declared that there exist in many county seats and in many municipalities within this State inadequate and outmoded public improvements, buildings and facilities for the furnishing of essential governmental services and for use in the conduct of local government by the various branches, departments and agencies thereof; that in many cases, by reason of the age of such public improvements, buildings and facilities and the increased activities on the part of both the citizen and his local government, they are no longer adapted or adequate to meet the needs of the growing population; that as a consequence thereof there are many counties, cities, municipalities and other branches and agencies of government within this State which are compelled to spend large sums of money annually in the rental, operation and maintenance of additional building space to house the various branches, departments and agencies of government to meet this ever increasing need; that as a result thereof, in many of the cities, counties, and other municipalities within this State, the public buildings housing the various branches, departments, and agencies of government are widely scattered and dispersed throughout the locality, thereby creating confusion and considerable waste of time and effort on the part of citizens conducting ordinary business with the various branches and agencies of government, and thereby creating reduced efficiency of operation in the necessary intergovernmental activities of the various branches and agencies of government; that many public records, wills, conveyances, vital records, court orders, and other similar documents in use in the conduct of daily business, are now filed in many poorly protected and overcrowded spaces and at widely separated locations by reason of the lack of an adequate public building or buildings; that the rendering of essential governmental, health, safety and welfare services is adversely affected by reason thereof, to the detriment of the citizens in many county seats and municipalities; that these conditions impair the efficient, economical and indispensable governmental functions of the various branches and agencies of government and the rendering of essential governmental, health, safety and welfare services, and that in order to eradicate these conditions, it is hereby found and declared to be necessary and desirable to make possible the construction, acquisition, or enlargement of public improvements, buildings and facilities to be made available for use by governmental agencies with the intent and purpose of centralizing, insofar as is practicable, the activities of the different branches of government and to make possible the construction, acquisition or enlargement of public improvements, buildings and facilities at convenient locations within the county seats and municipalities, for use by governmental agencies in the furnishing of essential governmental, health, safety and welfare services to its citizens; and that the eradication of these conditions and the construction, acquisition or enlargement of such public improvements, building or buildings and facilities, in the manner hereinafter provided in this Act, is hereby declared to be a public use essential to the public interest.

    (Section scheduled to be repealed on June 1, 2018)
    Sec. 2.5. Legislative policy; conditions for use of design-build. It is the intent of the General Assembly that a commission be allowed to use the design-build delivery method for public projects if it is shown to be in the commission's best interest for that particular project.
    It shall be the policy of the commission in the procurement of design-build services to publicly announce all requirements for design-build services and to procure these services on the basis of demonstrated competence and qualifications and with due regard for the principles of competitive selection.
    The commission shall, prior to issuing requests for proposals, promulgate and publish procedures for the solicitation and award of contracts pursuant to this Act.
    The commission shall, for each public project or projects permitted under this Act, make a written determination, including a description as to the particular advantages of the design-build procurement method, that it is in the best interests of the commission to enter into a design-build contract for the project or projects.
    In making that determination, the following factors shall be considered:
        (1) The probability that the design-build procurement
    
method will be in the best interests of the commission by providing a material savings of time or cost over the design-bid-build or other delivery system.
        (2) The type and size of the project and its
    
suitability to the design-build procurement method.
        (3) The ability of the design-build entity to define
    
and provide comprehensive scope and performance criteria for the project.
    The commission shall require the design-build entity to comply with the utilization goals established by the corporate authorities of the commission for minority and women business enterprises and to comply with Section 2-105 of the Illinois Human Rights Act.
    This Section is repealed on June 1, 2018; provided that any design-build contracts entered into before such date or any procurement of a project under this Act commenced before such date, and the contracts resulting from those procurements, shall remain effective.

The fact that a person is an officer or employee of any municipal corporation, including the county seat or county board or any municipality with 3,000 or more inhabitants which adopted the original resolution or any other municipal corporation which joined in the organization of the Commission, shall not disqualify that person from being a Commissioner of a Public Building Commission.

No Commissioner shall acquire any interest, direct or indirect in any contract or proposed contract of the Public Building Commission, or in any land, building or buildings or other property or facilities in which the Public Building Commission has an interest.

In addition, it has and shall exercise the following public and essential governmental powers and functions and all other powers incidental or necessary, to carry out and effectuate such express powers:
    (a) To select, locate and designate, at any time and from time to time, one or more areas lying wholly within the territorial limits of the municipality or of the county seat of the county in which the Commission is organized, or within the territorial limits of the county if the site is to be used for county purposes, or (in the case of a county having a population of at least 20,000 but not more than 21,000 as determined by the 1980 federal census) within the territorial limits of the county if the site is to be used for municipal purposes, as the site or sites to be acquired for the erection, alteration or improvement of a building or buildings, public improvement or other facilities for the purposes set forth in this Section.

Except where approval of the site or sites has been obtained by referendum, the area or areas may be enlarged by the Board of Commissioners, from time to time, as the need therefor arises. The selection, location and designation of more than one area may, but need not, be made at one time but may be made from time to time.

50 ILCS 20/14.1

    (50 ILCS 20/14.1) (from Ch. 85, par. 1044.1)
    Sec. 14.1. In addition to the permanent financing authorized by Sections 14 and 15 of this Act, the board of commissioners of any public building commission may borrow money and issue interim notes in evidence thereof, in the manner following:
    (a) Whenever it is deemed advisable and in the interests of the Commission to borrow funds temporarily for any of the purposes herein provided, in advance of permanent financing, the Board of Commissioners may from time to time and pursuant to appropriate resolution, borrow money and issue interim notes to evidence borrowings for the purpose of obtaining funds for any of its projects or to perform any of the duties or functions authorized under this Act, and, in addition, to obtain funds with which to acquire the area or site selected and approved, and for the erection, alteration, improvement, maintenance, operation or demolition of a building or buildings or other facilities located or to be located thereon for the purposes provided for by this Act, and with which to pay all necessary and incidental costs and expenses in connection therewith, including, but without in any way limiting the generality of the foregoing, general administrative expenses of the commission, preliminary project planning, area or site planning, surveying, appraisal, architectural, engineering, demolition, maintenance, operation and insurance costs and expenses, and interest on such borrowings until the date of the permanent financing. Any resolution authorizing the issuance of such notes shall describe the nature of the project, the area or site to be acquired, if the same shall have then been selected, located, designated and approved, or the work to be done and shall specify the principal amount, rate of interest (not exceeding the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at the time of the making of the contract) and maturity date which shall be the same for all interim notes but not to exceed 5 years from date of issue of the first of such notes so issued, and such other terms as may be specified in such resolution. However, the time of payment of any such notes may be extended for a period of not exceeding 2 years from the maturity date thereof.
    The Board of Commissioners may provide for the registration of the notes in the name of the owner either as to principal alone, or as to both principal and interest, on such terms and conditions as the Board may determine by the resolution authorizing their issue. The notes shall be issued from time to time by the Board of Commissioners as funds are borrowed, in the manner the Board of Commissioners may determine. Interest on the notes may be made payable semiannually, annually or at maturity. The notes may be made redeemable, prior to maturity, at the option of the Commission, in the manner and upon the terms fixed by the resolution authorizing their issuance. The notes may be executed in the name of the Commission by the Chairman of the Board of Commissioners or by any other officer or officers of the Commission as the Board by resolution may direct, shall be attested by the Secretary or such other officer or officers of the Commission as the Board may by resolution direct, and be sealed with the Commission's corporate seal. All such notes and the interest thereon may be secured by a pledge of any income and revenue derived by the Commission from the property to be acquired with the proceeds of the notes, after deducting from such income and revenue any reasonable and necessary maintenance and operation expenses, and shall be payable solely from such income and revenue and from the proceeds to be derived from the sale of any revenue bonds for permanent financing authorized to be issued under Sections 14 and 15 of this Act, and from the property acquired with the proceeds of the notes.
    Contemporaneously with the issue, as provided by this Act, of revenue bonds all interim notes, even though they may not then have matured, shall be paid, both principal and interest to date of payment, from the funds derived from the sale of revenue bonds for the permanent financing and such interim notes shall be surrendered and canceled.
    (b) The Commission, in order further to secure the payment of the interim notes, is, in addition to the foregoing, authorized and empowered to do the following:
    1. Pledge or mortgage all or any part of the property to be acquired with the proceeds of the interim notes, or provide otherwise for the sale, public or private and with or without notice, of all or any part of the property, in the event of default in payment of principal of or interest on the interim notes or on any covenant or agreement of the Commission in connection with the interim notes, and in the event of any such default to permit the acceleration of the maturity of the interim notes. Except with respect to the funds derived from revenue bonds, as provided in this Section no pledge, mortgage or provision for the sale of any property shall relate to any property, other than the property to be acquired with the proceeds of any and all such interim notes, and any net income and revenue derived from the property.
    2. Covenant against pledging or mortgaging or otherwise disposing of all or any part of or interest in the property to be acquired with proceeds of the interim notes, or any net income derived from the property; and against permitting or allowing any lien on the property or its net income; and against any borrowings or incurring liabilities in addition to the borrowings and liabilities, evidenced by the interim notes, prior to the issuance of revenue bonds; and against the issue of interim notes in excess of a specified principal amount; and against preference of any interim note over any other interim note as to payment of interest or principal; and against making any substitutions for or additions or improvements to such property except with the proceeds derived from borrowings evidenced by any and all such interim notes; or with the net income derived from such property.
    3. Make any other or additional covenants, terms and conditions not inconsistent with the provisions of subparagraph (a) of this Section, and do any and all acts and things as may be necessary or convenient or desirable in order to secure payment of its interim notes, or, in the discretion of the Commission, as will tend to make the interim notes more acceptable to lenders, notwithstanding that the covenants, acts or things may not be enumerated herein. However, nothing contained in this subparagraph shall authorize the Commission to secure the payment of the interim notes out of property, other than the property acquired with the proceeds of the interim notes, and any net income and revenue derived from the property and the proceeds of revenue bonds as provided in this Section.
    (c) The interim notes shall not constitute an indebtedness within the meaning of any constitutional or statutory debt limitation or restriction.
    (d) No member, officer, agent or employee of the Commission, nor any other person who executes interim notes, shall be liable personally thereon by reason of the issuance thereof.
    With respect to instruments for the payment of money issued under this Section either before, on, or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1989, it is and always has been the intention of the General Assembly (i) that the Omnibus Bond Acts are and always have been supplementary grants of power to issue instruments in accordance with the Omnibus Bond Acts, regardless of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts, (ii) that the provisions of this Section are not a limitation on the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts, and (iii) that instruments issued under this Section within the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts are not invalid because of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts.

    (50 ILCS 20/14.2) (from Ch. 85, par. 1044.2)
    Sec. 14.2. Relocation assistance payment. In addition to all other powers authorized under this Act, a public building commission shall have the power to make the following relocation assistance payments where such relocation assistance payments are not available from Federal funds or otherwise:
    (a) A public building commission is authorized to pay, as part of the cost of acquisition of any site, to a person displaced by a public building commission project, the actual reasonable expenses in moving said person, his family, his business, or his farm operation, including the moving of personal property. The allowable expenses for transportation shall not exceed the cost of moving 50 miles from the point from which such person, family, business or farm is being displaced.
    A public building commission is authorized to adopt rules and regulations as may be determined necessary to implement the payments as authorized by this section.
    (b) In lieu of the actual moving expenses heretofore authorized to be paid, a public building commission may pay any person displaced from a dwelling, who elects to accept such payment, a moving expense allowance determined according to a schedule to be established by a public building commission, not to exceed $1,000, and a further dislocation allowance of $500.
    (c) In lieu of the actual moving expenses heretofore authorized to be paid, a public building commission may pay any person who moves or discontinues his business or farm operation, who elects to accept such payment, a fixed relocation payment in an amount equal to the average annual net earnings of the business or the farm operation, or $10,000, whichever is the lesser. In the case of a business, no payment shall be made unless the public building commission is satisfied that the business (1) cannot be relocated without a substantial loss of its existing patronage, and (2) is not part of a commercial enterprise having at least one other establishment not being acquired for a project by a public building commission which is engaged in the same or similar business. The term "average annual net earnings" means one-half of any net earnings of the business or farm operation before Federal, State and local income taxes, during the two taxable years immediately preceding the taxable year in which such business or farm operation moves from the real property being acquired for such project, and includes any compensation paid by the business or farm operation to the owner, his spouse or his dependents during such two-year period.
    (d) In addition to the amounts heretofore authorized to be paid by a public building commission, a public building commission may, as part of the cost of acquisition of any site, make a payment to the owner of real property acquired for a public building commission project which is improved by a single, two or three-family dwelling actually owned and occupied by the owner for not less than one year prior to the initiation of negotiations for the acquisition of such property, an amount which, when added to the acquisition payment, equals the average price required for a comparable dwelling determined in accordance with standards established by the city, village or town in which the dwelling is located, to be a decent, safe and sanitary dwelling adequate to accommodate the displaced owner, reasonably accessible to public services and places of employment and available on the private market. Such payment shall not exceed the sum of $25,000, and shall be made only to a displaced owner who purchases and occupies a dwelling that meets the standards established by the city, village or town in which the dwelling is located, within one year subsequent to the date on which he is required to move from the dwelling acquired for the public building commission project. Any individual or family not eligible to receive such payment, who is displaced from any dwelling, which dwelling was actually and lawfully occupied by such individual and family for not less than ninety days prior to the initiation of negotiations for acquisition of such property, may be paid by a public building commission an amount necessary to enable such individual or family to lease or rent for a period not to exceed two years, or to make the down payment on the purchase of a decent, safe and sanitary dwelling of standards adequate to accommodate such individual or family in areas not generally less desirable in regard to public utilities and public and commercial facilities. Such payment shall not exceed the sum of $2,000.
    (e) In addition to the amounts heretofore authorized to be paid, a public building commission may reimburse the owner of real property acquired for a public building commission project the reasonable and necessary expenses incurred for (1) recording fees, transfer taxes, and similar expenses incidental to conveying such property; and (2) penalty costs for prepayment of any mortgages entered into in good faith encumbering such real property, if such mortgage is on record or has been filed for record under applicable State law on the date of the selection, location and designation of the site by a public building commission for such project.
    (f) Nothing contained in this amendatory Act creates in any proceedings brought under the power of eminent domain any element of damages not in existence as of the date of enactment of this amendatory Act.

50 ILCS 20/15

    (50 ILCS 20/15) (from Ch. 85, par. 1045)
    Sec. 15. Whenever and as often as the Board of Commissioners determines to issue bonds as provided in this Act, it shall adopt a resolution describing the area to be acquired, the nature of the improvements thereon, the disposition to be made of such improvements and a description of any new buildings or other facilities to be constructed thereon. Such description shall not prohibit the Board of Commissioners from making such minor changes as may be necessary or convenient in the discretion of the Board of Commissioners.
    The resolution shall set out the estimated cost of the project, including the cost of acquiring the site therefor, determine the period of usefulness and fix the amount of revenue bonds to be issued, the date or dates of maturity, the dates on which interest is payable, the sinking fund provisions and all other details in connection with such bonds. The Board shall determine and fix the rate of interest of any revenue bonds issued under this Section, in such resolution or in any supplemental resolution adopted by the Board prior to the issuance thereof. The resolution, trust agreement or other contract entered into with the bondholders may contain such covenants and restrictions concerning the issuance of additional revenue bonds thereafter as may be deemed necessary or advisable for the assurance of the payment of the bonds thereby authorized.
    All bonds shall be issued in the name of the Public Building Commission and have all the qualities and incidents of negotiable instruments under the laws of this State.
    Bonds issued under this Act, whether original issue or issues or refunding, may be issued as serial or term bonds, shall be of such denomination or denominations and form, including interest coupons to be attached thereto, shall be payable at such place or places and bear such date as the Board of Commissioners shall fix by the resolution authorizing such bonds and shall mature within a period not to exceed 40 years, and may be redeemable prior to maturity with or without premium, at the option of the Board of Commissioners, upon such terms and conditions as the Board of Commissioners shall fix by the resolution authorizing the issuance of such bonds. The Board of Commissioners may provide for the registration of such bonds in the name of the owner as to the principal alone or as to both principal and interest upon such terms and conditions as the Board of Commissioners may determine. All bonds issued under this Section by any Public Building Commission shall be sold at such price that the interest cost to the Commission of the proceeds of such bonds shall not exceed the maximum interest rate 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, payable semi-annually, computed to maturity and shall be sold in such manner and at such time or times as the Board of Commissioners shall determine.
    Bonds issued by a Public Building Commission, and the interest thereon, shall be payable solely from the revenues derived from the operation, management or use of the buildings or other facilities acquired or to be acquired by the Commission, which revenues shall include payments received under any leases or other contracts for the use of the facilities, buildings or space therein. All bonds shall recite in the body thereof that the principal and interest thereon are payable solely from the revenues pledged to pay such bonds and shall state on their face that it is not an indebtedness of the Commission or a claim against the property of such Commission.
    The bonds shall be executed in the name of the Commission by the Chairman of the Board of Commissioners or by such other officer of the Commission as the Board, by resolution, may direct, and be attested by the Secretary, or by such other officer of the Commission as the Board, by resolution, may direct, and shall be sealed with the Commission's corporate seal. The interest coupons attached to such bonds shall be executed by the facsimile signatures of the persons who shall execute the bonds. The Chairman and Secretary or other officers of the Commission executing the bonds shall adopt for their own signatures, their respective facsimile signatures appearing on such coupons. In case any officer whose signature appears on the bonds or coupons shall cease to be such officer before delivery of such bonds, such signature shall nevertheless be valid and sufficient for all purposes, the same as if such officer had remained in office until such delivery.
    In its discretion, the Public Building Commission may, from time to time, as often as it may deem to be advantageous, issue refunding bonds to refund its bonds prior to their maturity, refund its outstanding matured bonds, refund matured coupons evidencing interest upon its outstanding bonds, refund interest at the coupon rate upon its outstanding matured bonds that has accrued since the maturity thereof, and refund its bonds which by their terms are subject to call or redemption before maturity. All bonds redeemed or purchased in accordance with this Act shall forthwith be cancelled and shall not be used again.
    To secure the payment of any or all revenue bonds and for the purpose of setting forth the covenants and undertakings of the Commission in connection with the issuance of revenue bonds and the issuance of any additional revenue bonds payable from such revenue income to be derived from the operation, management or use of the buildings or other facilities acquired or to be acquired by the Commission, the Commission may execute and deliver a trust agreement or agreements except that no lien upon any physical property of the Commission shall be created thereby.
    The proceeds from the sale of bonds under this Section shall be paid to the Treasurer of the Public Building Commission or, in the event that a trust agreement is executed and delivered by the Commission, then and in such event, the proceeds from the sale of bonds under this Section shall be paid to the trustee or trustees specified in any such trust agreement. If the proceeds from the sale of the bonds issued under this Section exceed the cost of the project, the Public Building Commission shall place such excess funds in the sinking fund created for making payment of principal or interest of such bonds as the same matures or for the purchase of outstanding bonds at such times and in such manner as may be provided in the resolution authorizing the issuance of such bonds, or in any trust agreement or contract entered into with the bondholders.
    The resolution shall provide for the creation of a sinking fund account into which shall be payable from the revenues of such project, from month to month as such revenues are collected, such sums in excess of the cost of maintenance and operation of the project and the costs of administration of the Commission, as will be sufficient to comply with the covenants of the bond resolution and sufficient to pay the accruing interest and retire the bonds at maturity. The Board of Commissioners, in such resolution, may provide for such other accounts as it may deem necessary for the sale of the bonds. The monies in such accounts shall be applied in the manner provided by the resolution, the trust agreement or other contract with the bondholders.
    No bond issued under this Act shall constitute a debt of the Commission or of any public body within the meaning of any statutory or constitutional limitation as to debt.
    From and after the issuance of bonds as provided in this Section it shall be the duty of the Board of Commissioners to establish and fix rates, rentals, fees and charges for the use of any and all buildings or space therein or other facilities owned and operated by the Commission, sufficient at all times to pay maintenance and operation costs and to pay the accruing interest and retire the bonds at maturity and to make all payments to all accounts created by any bond resolution and to comply with all covenants of any bond resolution.

    Sec. 18. Whenever, and as often as, a municipal corporation having taxing power enters into a lease with a Public Building Commission, the governing body of such municipal corporation shall provide by ordinance or resolution, as the case may be, for the levy and collection of a direct annual tax sufficient to pay the annual rent payable under such lease as and when it becomes due and payable. A certified copy of the lease of such municipal corporation and a certified copy of the tax levying ordinance or resolution, as the case may be, of such municipal corporation shall be filed in the office of the county clerk in each county in which any portion of the territory of such municipal corporation is situated, which certified copies shall constitute the authority for the county clerk or clerks, in each case, to extend the taxes annually necessary to pay the annual rent payable under such lease as and when it becomes due and payable. No taxes shall be extended for any lease entered into after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1993, however, until after a public hearing on the lease. The clerk or secretary of the governing body of the municipal corporation shall cause notice of the time and place of the hearing to be published at least once, at least 15 days before the hearing, in a newspaper published or having general circulation within the municipal corporation. If no such newspaper exists, the clerk or secretary shall cause the notice to be posted, at least 15 days before the hearing, in at least 10 conspicuous places within the municipal corporation. The notice shall be in the following form:
    NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON LEASE between (name of the municipal corporation) and (name of the public building commission).
    A public hearing regarding a lease between (name of the municipal corporation) and (name of the public building commission) will be held by (name of the governing body of the municipal corporation) on (date) at (time) at (location).

Clerk or Secretary
    At the hearing, all persons residing or owning property in the municipal corporation shall have an opportunity to be heard orally, in writing, or both.
    Upon the filing of the certified copies of the lease and the tax levying ordinance or resolution in the office of the county clerk or clerks of the proper county or counties, it shall be the duty of such county clerk or clerks to ascertain the rate per cent which, upon the value of all property subject to taxation within the municipal corporation, as that property is assessed or equalized by the Department of Revenue, will produce a net amount of not less than the amount of the annual rent reserved in such lease. The county clerk or clerks shall thereupon, and thereafter annually during the term of the lease, extend taxes against all of the taxable property contained in that municipal corporation sufficient to pay the annual rental reserved in such lease. Such tax shall be levied and collected in like manner with the other taxes of such municipal corporation and shall be in addition to all other taxes now or hereafter authorized to be levied by that municipal corporation. This tax shall not be included within any statutory limitation of rate or amount for that municipal corporation but shall be excluded therefrom and be in addition thereto and in excess thereof. The fund realized from such tax levy shall be set aside for the payment of the annual rent and shall not be disbursed for any other purpose until the annual rental has been paid in full. This Section shall not be construed to limit the power of the Commission to enter into leases with any municipal corporation whether or not the municipal corporation has the power of taxation.

If the bidder whose bid has been accepted shall neglect or refuse to accept the contract within five (5) days after written notice that the same has been awarded to him, or if he accepts but does not execute the contract and give the proper security, the Commission may accept the next lowest bidder, or readvertise and relet in manner above provided.
    (f) In case any work shall be abandoned by any contractor or design-build entity, the Commission may, if the best interests of the Commission be thereby served, adopt on behalf of the Commission all subcontracts made by such contractor or design-build entity for such work and all such sub-contractors shall be bound by such adoption if made; and the Commission shall, in the manner provided in this Act, readvertise and relet, or request proposals and award design-build contracts for, the work specified in the original contract exclusive of so much thereof as shall be accepted.

    (a) The General Assembly finds and declares that:
        (1) When Public Act 95-595 (effective June 1, 2008)
    
amended the Public Building Commission Act, it provided repeal dates for Sections 2.5, 20.3, 20.4, 20.5, 20.10, 20.15, 20.20, and 20.25 of this Act of 5 years after the effective date of Public Act 95-595 (June 1, 2013).

on the repeal of statutes and the construction of multiple amendments, but Section 1 of that Act also states that these rules will not be observed when the result would be "inconsistent with the manifest intent of the General Assembly or repugnant to the context of the statute".
        (4) The actions of the General Assembly clearly
    
manifest the intention of the General Assembly to extend the repeal of Sections 2.5, 20.3, 20.4, 20.5, 20.10, 20.15, 20.20, and 20.25 of this Act and have those Sections continue in effect until June 1, 2018.

20.20, and 20.25 of this Act were originally enacted to protect, promote, and preserve the general welfare. Any construction of this Act that results in the repeal of those Sections on June 1, 2013 would be inconsistent with the manifest intent of the General Assembly and repugnant to the context of this Act.
    (b) It is hereby declared to have been the intent of the General Assembly, in enacting Public Act 98-299, that Sections 2.5, 20.3, 20.4, 20.5, 20.10, 20.15, 20.20, and 20.25 of this Act be changed to make June 1, 2018 the repeal date of Sections 2.5, 20.3, 20.4, 20.5, 20.10, 20.15, 20.20, and 20.25 of this Act, and that Sections 2.5, 20.3, 20.4, 20.5, 20.10, 20.15, 20.20, and 20.25 of this Act therefore not be subject to repeal on June 1, 2013.
    (c) Sections 2.5, 20.3, 20.4, 20.5, 20.10, 20.15, 20.20, and 20.25 of this Act shall be deemed to have been in continuous effect since June 1, 2008 (the effective date of Public Act 95-595), and shall continue to be in effect henceforward until June 1, 2018, unless they are otherwise lawfully repealed. All previously enacted amendments to this Act taking effect on or after June 1, 2013 are hereby validated.
    (d) All actions taken in reliance on or pursuant to Sections 2.5, 20.3, 20.4, 20.5, 20.10, 20.15, 20.20, and 20.25 of this Act by the Public Building Commission or any other person or entity are hereby validated.
    (e) In order to ensure the continuing effectiveness of Sections 2.5, 20.3, 20.4, 20.5, 20.10, 20.15, 20.20, and 20.25 of this Act, those Sections are set forth in full and reenacted by this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly. This reenactment is intended as a continuation of those Sections. It is not intended to supersede any amendment to the Act that is enacted by the 98th General Assembly.
    (f) In this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly, the base text of the reenacted Sections is set forth as amended by Public Act 98-299. Striking and underscoring is used only to show changes being made to the base text. In this instance, no underscoring or striking is shown in the base text because no additional changes are being made.
    (g) Sections 2.5, 20.3, 20.4, 20.5, 20.10, 20.15, 20.20, and 20.25 of this Act apply to all claims, civil actions, and proceedings pending on or filed on or before the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly.
