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.

35 ILCS 200/11-15

    (35 ILCS 200/11-15)
    Sec. 11-15. Method of valuation for pollution control facilities. To determine 33 1/3% of the fair cash value of any certified pollution control facilities in assessing those facilities, the Department shall take into consideration the actual or probable net earnings attributable to the facilities in question, capitalized on the basis of their productive earning value to their owner; the probable net value which could be realized by their owner if the facilities were removed and sold at a fair, voluntary sale, giving due account to the expense of removal and condition of the particular facilities in question; and other information as the Department may consider as bearing on the fair cash value of the facilities to their owner, consistent with the principles set forth in this Section. For the purposes of this Code, earnings shall be attributed to a pollution control facility only to the extent that its operation results in the production of a commercially saleable by-product or increases the production or reduces the production costs of the products or services otherwise sold by the owner of such facility.

    Sec. 11-35. Low sulfur dioxide emission coal fueled devices. It is the policy of this State that the use of low sulfur dioxide emission coal fueled devices should be encouraged as conserving nonrenewable resources, reducing pollution and promoting the use of abundant, high-sulfur, locally available coal as well as promoting the health and well-being of the people of this State, and should be valued at 33 1/3% of their fair cash value.
