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.

For fiscal year 1995 and each fiscal year thereafter, the grant shall equal 0.5% of the equalized assessed valuation of the land owned by the State (computing that equalized assessed valuation by multiplying the average value per taxable acre of the school district by the total number of acres of land owned by the State). Annually on or before September 15, 1994 and July 1, thereafter, the district superintendent shall certify to the State Board of Education the following matters:
        1. The name of the State institution.

        6. The computed amount of the tax-equivalent grant
    
claimed.
    Failure of any district superintendent to certify the claim for the tax-equivalent grant on or before September 15, 1994 or July 1 of a subsequent year shall constitute a forfeiture by the district of its right to such grant for the school year.
