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.

All such bonds shall be payable solely from the revenues or income to be derived from the fairs, expositions, exhibitions, rentals and leases and other authorized activities operated by it, and from funds, if any, received and to be received by the Authority from any other source.

The holder or holders of any bonds, or interest coupons appertaining thereto issued by the Authority may bring suits at law or proceedings in equity to compel the performance and observance by the Authority or any of its officers, agents or employees of any contract or covenant made by the Authority with the holders of such bonds or interest coupons, to compel the Authority and any of its officers, agents or employees to perform any duties required to be performed for the benefit of the holders of any such bonds or interest coupons by the provisions of the ordinance authorizing their issuance, and to enjoin the Authority and any of its officers, agents or employees from taking any action in conflict with any such contract or covenant.

    (b) the bonds and interest thereon as they shall become due, and all sinking fund requirements and other requirements provided by the ordinance authorizing the issuance of the bonds or as provided by any trust agreement executed to secure payment thereof.
    To secure the payment of any or all such bonds and for the purpose of setting forth the covenants and undertakings of the Authority in connection with the issuance thereof and the issuance of any additional bonds payable from such revenue income to be derived from the fairs, recreational, theatrical, cultural, expositions, sports activities, exhibitions, office rentals and air space leases and rentals, and other revenue, if any, the Authority may execute and deliver a trust agreement or agreements; provided that no lien upon any physical property of the Authority shall be created thereby.
    A remedy for any breach or default of the terms of any such trust agreement by the Authority may be by mandamus proceedings in any court of competent jurisdiction to compel performance and compliance therewith, but the trust agreement may prescribe by whom or on whose behalf such action may be instituted.
    Before any such bonds (excepting refunding bonds) are sold, the entire authorized issue, or any part thereof, shall be offered for sale as a unit after advertising for bids at least 3 times in a daily newspaper of general circulation published in the metropolitan area, the last publication to be at least 10 days before bids are required to be filed. Copies of such advertisement may be published in any newspaper or financial publication in the United States. All bids shall be sealed, filed and opened as provided by ordinance and the bonds shall be awarded to the highest and best bidder or bidders therefor. The Authority shall have the right to reject all bids and readvertise for bids in the manner provided for in the initial advertisement. However, if no bids are received, such bonds may be sold at not less than par value, without further advertising, within 60 days after the bids are required to be filed pursuant to any advertisement.
