Short description: 
MUNI CD-LEVY AND APPROPRIATION                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends  the  Illinois  Municipal  Code.   Amends  the   provision      
   regarding annual appropriation ordinances in municipalities with fewer      
   than   500,000   inhabitants   that  have  not  adopted  the  Optional      
   Budget-Officer Act to allow corporate authorities to transfer sums  of      
   money  appropriated  for  one  purpose or object to another purpose or      
   object, if authorized by a two-thirds vote (transfers now can be  made      
   only  within  the  same  municipal  department or agency).  Also makes      
   grammatical changes and provides that the appropriation ordinance  may      
   be  passed  (now, adopted) at or after the public meeting at which the      
   ordinance is discussed.  Amends the provision governing the manner  of      
   levying  and  collecting  taxes  to eliminate the requirement that the      
   property tax levy made on or before the last Tuesday  in  December  be      
   based  on  the  appropriation  ordinance  for  the current year.  Also      
   eliminates the requirement that the levy ordinance  contain  the  same      
   details  as  the  annual  appropriation or budget ordinance, requiring      
   instead that the ordinance specify the amount and purpose of the  sums      
   to be levied.
