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.

Every city and village with a population of less than 500,000 in the manner provided in this Division 66, may establish and maintain a municipal coliseum to be used for general educational and amusement purposes for the benefit of its inhabitants.

Those taxes shall be levied and collected in like manner as other taxes of the municipality are levied and collected for municipal purposes. This tax when collected shall be paid to the municipal treasurer and shall be designated as the municipal coliseum fund. This tax shall be in addition to all other taxes which the municipality is now or may be hereafter authorized to levy and collect, and shall be in addition to the amount authorized to be levied for general purposes as provided by Section 8-3-1.
    The foregoing limitations upon tax rates may be increased or decreased according to the referendum provisions of the General Revenue Law of Illinois.
