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.

70 ILCS 3205/3

    (70 ILCS 3205/3) (from Ch. 85, par. 6003)
    Sec. 3. Legislative Finding and Declaration. It is hereby found that as a result of deteriorating infrastructure and sports facilities in the metropolitan area of Chicago, there is a shortage of facilities suitable for use by professional and other sports teams and musical, theatrical, cultural, and other social organizations.
    It is further found that as a result of the costs to maintain, repair or replace such infrastructure and facilities, and as a result of current high financing costs, the private sector, without the assistance contemplated in this Act, is unable to construct feasibly adequate sports facilities.
    It is further found that the creation of modern sports facilities and the other results contemplated by this Act would stimulate economic activity in the State of Illinois, including the creation and maintenance of jobs, the creation of new and lasting infrastructure and other improvements, and the attraction and retention of sports and entertainment events which generate economic activity.
    It is further found that professional sports facilities can be magnets for substantial interstate tourism resulting in increased retail sales, hotel and restaurant sales, and entertainment industry sales, all of which increase jobs and economic growth.
    It is further found that only three major league professional baseball franchises play in stadium facilities the construction of which has not been government-assisted and of those three the most recently constructed facility was completed in 1914.
    It is further found that government assistance was or is an essential component in the financing of the construction of most recently built or planned National Football League stadiums.
    It is further found that the exercise by the Authority and governmental owners of the additional powers conferred by this amendatory Act of the 91st General Assembly (i) will materially assist the development and redevelopment of government owned sports facilities and thereby alleviate in part the deleterious conditions and confer the public benefits described in this Section and (ii) is in the public interest and is declared to be for public purposes.

    (F) The Authority may issue bonds to refund, advance refund or refinance any of its bonds then outstanding, including the payment of any redemption premium and any interest accrued or to accrue to the earliest or any subsequent date of redemption, purchase or maturity of the bonds. Refunding or advance refunding bonds may be issued for the public purposes of realizing savings in the effective costs of debt service, directly or through a debt restructuring, for alleviating impending or actual default, or for paying principal of, redemption premium, if any, and interest on bonds as they mature or are subject to redemption, and may be issued in one or more series in an amount in excess of that of the bonds to be refunded.

    (H) The bonds and notes of the Authority shall not be indebtedness of the City of Chicago, of the State, or of any political subdivision of the State other than the Authority. The bonds and notes of the Authority are not general obligations of the State of Illinois or the City of Chicago, or of any other political subdivision of the State other than the Authority, and are not secured by a pledge of the full faith and credit of the State of Illinois or the City of Chicago, or of any other political subdivision of the State other than the Authority, and the holders of bonds and notes of the Authority may not require the levy or imposition by the State or the City of Chicago, or any other political subdivision of the State other than the Authority, of any taxes or, except as provided in this Act, the application of revenues or funds of the State of Illinois or the City of Chicago or any other political subdivision of the State other than the Authority to the payment of bonds and notes of the Authority.
    (I) In order to provide for the payment of debt service requirements (including amounts for reserve funds and to pay the costs of credit enhancements) on bonds issued pursuant to this Act, the Authority may provide in any trust agreement securing such bonds for a pledge and assignment of its right to all amounts to be received from the Illinois Sports Facilities Fund and for a pledge and assignment (subject to the terms of any management agreement or assistance agreement) of all taxes and other amounts to be received under Section 19 of this Act and may further provide by written notice to the State Treasurer and State Comptroller (which notice shall constitute a direction to those officers) for a direct payment of these amounts to the trustee for its bondholders.
    (J) The State of Illinois pledges to and agrees with the holders of the bonds and notes of the Authority issued pursuant to this Act that the State will not limit or alter the rights and powers vested in the Authority by this Act so as to impair the terms of any contract made by the Authority with such holders or in any way impair the rights and remedies of such holders until such bonds and notes, together with interest thereon, with interest on any unpaid installments of interest, and all costs and expenses in connection with any action or proceedings by or on behalf of such holders, are fully met and discharged. In addition, the State pledges to and agrees with the holders of the bonds and notes of the Authority issued pursuant to this Act that the State will not limit or alter the basis on which State funds are to be allocated, deposited and paid to the Authority as provided in this Act, or the use of such funds, so as to impair the terms of any such contract. The Authority is authorized to include these pledges and agreements of the State in any contract with the holders of bonds or notes issued pursuant to this Section.

70 ILCS 3205/19

    (70 ILCS 3205/19) (from Ch. 85, par. 6019)
    Sec. 19. Tax. The Authority may impose an occupation tax upon all persons engaged in the City of Chicago in the business of renting, leasing or letting rooms in a hotel, as defined in The Hotel Operators' Occupation Tax Act, at a rate not to exceed 2% of the gross rental receipts from the renting, leasing or letting of hotel rooms located within the City of Chicago, excluding, however, from gross rental receipts, the proceeds of such renting, leasing or letting to permanent residents of that hotel and proceeds from the tax imposed under subsection (c) of Section 13 of the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority Act.
    The tax imposed by the Authority pursuant to this Section and all civil penalties that may be assessed as an incident thereof shall be collected and enforced by the State Department of Revenue. The certificate of registration which is issued by the Department to a lessor under The Hotel Operators' Occupation Tax Act shall permit such registrant to engage in a business which is taxable under any ordinance or resolution enacted pursuant to this Section without registering separately with the Department under such ordinance or resolution or under this Section. The Department shall have full power to administer and enforce this Section; to collect all taxes and penalties due hereunder; to dispose of taxes and penalties so collected in the manner provided in this Section, and to determine all rights to credit memoranda, arising on account of the erroneous payment of tax or penalty hereunder. In the administration of, and compliance with, this Section, the Department and persons who are subject to this Section shall have the same rights, remedies, privileges, immunities, powers and duties, and be subject to the same conditions, restrictions, limitations, penalties and definitions of terms, and employ the same modes of procedure, as are prescribed in The Hotel Operators' Occupation Tax Act (except where that Act is inconsistent herewith), as the same is now or may hereafter be amended, as fully as if the provisions contained in The Hotel Operators' Occupation Tax Act were set forth herein.
    Whenever the Department determines that a refund should be made under this Section to a claimant instead of issuing a credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the State Comptroller, who shall cause the warrant to be drawn for the amount specified, and to the person named, in such notification from the Department. Such refund shall be paid by the State Treasurer out of the amounts held by the State Treasurer as trustee for the Authority.
    Persons subject to any tax imposed pursuant to authority granted by this Section may reimburse themselves for their tax liability for such tax by separately stating such tax as an additional charge, which charge may be stated in combination, in a single amount, with State tax imposed under The Hotel Operators' Occupation Tax Act, the municipal tax imposed under Section 8-3-13 of the Illinois Municipal Code, and the tax imposed under Section 13 of the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority Act.
    The Department shall forthwith pay over to the State Treasurer, ex-officio, as trustee for the Authority, all taxes and penalties collected hereunder for deposit in a trust fund outside the State Treasury. On or before the 25th day of each calendar month, the Department shall certify to the Comptroller the amount to be paid to or on behalf of the Authority from amounts collected hereunder by the Department, and deposited into such trust fund during the second preceding calendar month. The amount to be paid to or on behalf of the Authority shall be the amount (not including credit memoranda) collected hereunder during such second preceding calendar month by the Department, less an amount equal to the amount of refunds authorized during such second preceding calendar month by the Department on behalf of the Authority, and less 4% of such balance, which sum shall be retained by the State Treasurer to cover the costs incurred by the Department in administering and enforcing the provisions of this Section, as provided herein. Each such monthly certification by the Department shall also certify to the Comptroller the amount to be so retained by the State Treasurer for payment into the General Revenue Fund of the State Treasury.
    Each monthly certification by the Department shall certify, of the amount paid to or on behalf of the Authority, (i) the portion to be paid to the Authority, (ii) the portion to be paid into the General Revenue Fund of the State Treasury on behalf of the Authority as repayment of amounts advanced to the Authority pursuant to appropriation from the Illinois Sports Facilities Fund.
    With respect to each State fiscal year, of the total amount to be paid to or on behalf of the Authority, the Department shall certify that payments shall first be made directly to the Authority in an amount equal to any difference between the annual amount certified by the Chairman of the Authority pursuant to Section 8.25-4 of the State Finance Act and the amount appropriated to the Authority from the Illinois Sports Facilities Fund. Next, the Department shall certify that payment shall be made into the General Revenue Fund of the State Treasury in an amount equal to the difference between (i) the lesser of (x) the amount appropriated from the Illinois Sports Facilities Fund to the Authority and (y) the annual amount certified by the Chairman of the Authority pursuant to Section 8.25-4 of the State Finance Act and (ii) $10,000,000. The Department shall certify that all additional amounts shall be paid to the Authority and used for its corporate purposes.
    Within 10 days after receipt, by the Comptroller, of the Department's monthly certification of amounts to be paid to or on behalf of the Authority and amounts to be paid into the General Revenue Fund, the Comptroller shall cause the warrants to be drawn for the respective amounts in accordance with the directions contained in such certification.
    Amounts collected by the Department and paid to the Authority pursuant to this Section shall be used for the corporate purposes of the Authority. On June 15, 1992 and on each June 15 thereafter, the Authority shall repay to the State Treasurer all amounts paid to it under this Section and otherwise remaining available to the Authority after providing for (i) payment of principal and interest on, and other payments related to, its obligations issued or to be issued under Section 13 of the Act, including any deposits required to reserve funds created under any indenture or resolution authorizing issuance of the obligations and payments to providers of credit enhancement, (ii) payment of obligations under the provisions of any management agreement with respect to a facility or facilities owned by the Authority or of any assistance agreement with respect to any facility for which financial assistance is provided under this Act, and payment of other capital and operating expenses of the Authority, including any deposits required to reserve funds created for repair and replacement of capital assets and to meet the obligations of the Authority under any management agreement or assistance agreement. Amounts repaid by the Authority to the State Treasurer hereunder shall be treated as repayment of amounts deposited into the Illinois Sports Facilities Fund and credited to the Subsidy Account and used for the corporate purposes of the Authority. The State Treasurer shall deposit $5,000,000 of the amount received into the General Revenue Fund; thereafter, at the beginning of each fiscal year the State Treasurer shall certify to the State Comptroller for all prior fiscal years the cumulative amount of any deficiencies in repayments to the City of Chicago of amounts in the Local Government Distributive Fund that would otherwise have been allocated to the City of Chicago under the State Revenue Sharing Act but instead were paid into the General Revenue Fund under Section 6 of the Hotel Operators' Occupation Tax Act and that have not been reimbursed, and the Comptroller shall, during the fiscal year at the beginning of which the certification was made, cause warrants to be drawn from the amount received for the repayment of that cumulative amount to the City of Chicago until that cumulative amount has been fully reimbursed; thereafter, the State Treasurer shall deposit the balance of the amount received into the trust fund established outside the State Treasury under subsection (g) of Section 13 of the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority Act.
    Nothing in this Section shall be construed to authorize the Authority to impose a tax upon the privilege of engaging in any business which under the constitution of the United States may not be made the subject of taxation by this State.
    An ordinance or resolution imposing or discontinuing a tax hereunder or effecting a change in the rate thereof shall be effective on the first day of the second calendar month next following the month in which the ordinance or resolution is passed.
    If the Authority levies a tax authorized by this Section it shall transmit to the Department of Revenue not later than 5 days after the adoption of the ordinance or resolution a certified copy of the ordinance or resolution imposing such tax whereupon the Department of Revenue shall proceed to administer and enforce this Section on behalf of the Authority. Upon a change in rate of a tax levied hereunder, or upon the discontinuance of the tax, the Authority shall not later than 5 days after the effective date of the ordinance or resolution discontinuing the tax or effecting a change in rate transmit to the Department of Revenue a certified copy of the ordinance or resolution effecting such change or discontinuance.
