Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

30 ILCS 405/3

    (30 ILCS 405/3) (from Ch. 127, par. 453)
    Sec. 3. The issuance, sale and retirement of bonds authorized by this Act shall be under the general supervision and control of the Environmental Protection Agency, hereinafter called the "Agency", created by the "Environmental Protection Act", enacted by the 76th General Assembly.
    The bonds shall bear interest payable annually or semi-annually, from their date, at the rate of not more than 7% per annum. The bonds shall be serial bonds and be dated, issued and sold from time to time in such amounts as may be necessary to provide funds for the protection of environment within this State as provided by Section 4 of this Act. Each bond shall be in the denomination of $1,000 or some multiple thereof, and shall be made payable within 25 years from its date. These bonds shall be signed by the Governor and attested by the Secretary of State under the seal of the State and countersigned by the State Treasurer or by his duly authorized deputy. The signatures of the Governor and the Secretary of State may be lithographed facsimile signatures. Interest coupons with lithographed facsimile signatures of the Governor, Secretary of State and State Treasurer may be attached to the bonds. The fact that an officer whose signature or facsimile thereof appears on a bond or interest coupon no longer holds such office at the time the bond or coupon is delivered shall not invalidate such bond or interest coupon.
    Pending the preparation and execution of any such bonds, temporary bonds may be issued with or without interest coupons. The bonds shall be sold to the highest and best bidders, for not less than their par value, upon sealed bids. The Agency shall, from time to time as the bonds are to be sold, advertise in at least 2 daily newspapers, one of which is published in the City of Springfield and one in the City of Chicago, for proposals to purchase the bonds. Each of such advertisements for proposals shall be published at least 10 days prior to the date of the opening of the bids. The Agency may reserve the right to reject any and all bids. The bonds may be made registerable as to principal with the State Treasurer. The bonds shall be deposited with the State Treasurer, and when sold the proceeds of the bonds shall be paid into the State Treasury and kept in a separate fund which shall be known as the Anti-Pollution Fund, which separate fund is hereby created.

    (3) The sewer facility requires major rehabilitation or replacement to maintain its integrity and performance.
    (4) The sewer serves the wastewater disposal needs of a significant portion of at least 2 separate units of local government or political jurisdictions.
    (5) The sewer serves an area in excess of 2,000 acres and supports a population of not less than 15,000 people.
    (6) The majority of the sewer's length underlies a state or federal highway and threatens the use of such highway.
    (7) The sewer's collapse would threaten the safety and well-being of both the residential and transient population of the community.
