    Sec. 1H-75. Tax for emergency Financial Oversight Panel financial aid. If the Panel is unable to secure short-term borrowing pursuant to Section 1H-70 of this Code, the Panel:
        (1) based upon an original or amended budget filed by
a Financial Oversight Panel and approved by the State Board of Education, may levy a one-time-only tax, in an amount not to exceed 75% of the amount expended by the school district subject to the oversight of the Panel in the immediately preceding year for educational, operations and maintenance, transportation, and municipal retirement purposes; as reflected in the most recently filed annual financial report, and as adjusted by the CPI most recently under the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law;
        (2) following approval by the State Board of
Education, shall file a certificate of tax levy with the county clerk or clerks with whom the school district must file tax levies, such taxes to be extended against all the property of the school district upon the value of the taxable property within its territory, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue; and
        (3) may issue warrants, or may provide a fund to meet
the expenses by issuing and disposing of warrants, drawn against and in anticipation of the tax levied pursuant to this Section, for the payment of the necessary expenses of the district, either for transportation, educational, or all operations and maintenance purposes or for payments to the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund, as the case may be, to the extent of 75% of the total amount of the tax so levied. The warrants shall show upon their face that they are payable in the numerical order of their issuance solely from such taxes when collected, and shall be received by any collector of taxes in payment of the taxes against which they are issued, and such taxes shall be set apart and held for their payment; every warrant shall bear interest, payable only out of the taxes against which it is drawn, at a rate not exceeding the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at the time of the making of the contract, if issued before July 1, 1971 and if issued thereafter at the rate of not to exceed the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at the time of the making of the contract, from the date of its issuance until paid or until notice shall be given by publication in a newspaper or otherwise that the money for its payment is available and that it will be paid on presentation, unless a lower rate of interest is specified therein, in which case the interest shall be computed and paid at the lower rate.
