    AN ACT concerning safety.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The Solid Waste Planning and Recycling Act is
amended by adding Section 9.5 as follows:
 
    (415 ILCS 15/9.5 new)
    Sec. 9.5. Regulation of certain pollution control
facilities. No provision of this Act shall be construed to
allow any county with a population of less than 2,000,000
residents to adopt an ordinance or resolution, except an
ordinance or resolution adopting a county plan in accordance
with Sections 4 and 5 of this Act, or implementing a county
plan in accordance with Section 7 of this Act, that requires
the issuance of a permit, or that imposes regulations upon the
operations of a municipal solid waste landfill unit, sanitary
landfill, storage site, transfer station, or waste disposal
site, as long as the facility obtains appropriate permits from
the Agency in accordance with Section 39 of the Environmental
Protection Act. Nothing in this amendatory Act of the 100th
General Assembly shall be construed to diminish or impair any
authority conferred upon a county under the Environmental
Protection Act, including, but not limited to, subsection (r)
of Section 4 and Section 39.2 of the Environmental Protection
Act.
    Nothing in this amendatory Act of the 100th General
Assembly shall be construed to limit the authority of a county
to prepare or adopt a county plan pursuant to and in accordance
with Sections 4 and 5 of this Act, to implement a county plan
in accordance with Section 7 of this Act, or to relieve a
facility proposed for siting approval from demonstrating
consistency with that plan as required by criterion (viii) of
subsection (a) of Section 39.2 of the Environmental Protection
Act.
    For the purposes of this Section, "municipal solid waste
landfill unit", "sanitary landfill", "storage site", "transfer
station", and "waste disposal site" have the meanings provided
to those terms in the Environmental Protection Act.
 
    Section 99. Effective date. This Act takes effect upon
becoming law.
