    Sec. 14. (a) The Authority shall, prior to the commencement of any engineering and traffic study or studies to determine the feasibility of constructing additional toll highways within the State of Illinois, submit to the Governor for his approval, the route, or routes, proposed for additional toll highways together with an estimate of the cost of the proposed study or studies. If the Governor shall approve such proposed study or studies and the estimated cost thereof, or shall fail to disapprove such proposed study or studies and estimate of cost thereof, within 30 days after receipt thereof, the Authority may, thereupon, proceed with such study or studies.
    (b) The Authority shall create a local advisory committee of members from each county in which any portion of an additional toll highway is proposed to be constructed. The committee members shall be designated by township and municipal governing bodies in proportion to the percentage of corridor property situated within the unincorporated area of a township and incorporated municipalities located in the same township. No less than 50% of the members of this committee shall be representatives of organized citizen groups directly affected by the proposed corridor. All meetings shall be held in compliance with the Open Meetings Act. The committee shall consider and advise the Authority with respect to the impact on property owners, land use, and other impacts of the proposed highway. The committee shall be dissolved when one year has elapsed since the opening of the tollway for which the committee was created.
