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.

    Sec. 2. Whenever there are not sufficient funds on hand to pay obligations and the governing body of the unit of local government or school district shall deem it for the best interest of the unit of local government or school district, as the case may be, to provide funds for the payment of its obligations which are either general expenses or otherwise, whether due or to accrue in the then fiscal year, and it shall theretofore have been assured in writing of receiving revenue from a reliable source such as federal aid, State revenue sharing or local fees for the payment of such obligations and shall have filed with the proper county clerk the necessary evidence of such assurance, such unit of local government or school district is hereby authorized to provide funds for such purpose and issue its notes therefor in the manner provided in this Act.
    The governing body shall provide for such issue by an appropriate resolution which shall set forth:
    (a) The amount of money to be borrowed and the purpose for which it will be expended, the estimated revenues and the aggregate appropriations for such purpose. The purpose need not be stated in detail, but the statement thereof shall indicate whether such funds are for the payment of general expenses or for a particular fund, and if for a particular fund it shall be identified.

    (50 ILCS 425/3) (from Ch. 85, par. 831-3)
    Sec. 3. Notes issued under this Act shall be due not more than 12 months from the date of issue and shall be payable in accordance with the resolution adopted by the governing body providing for the issuance of the notes or warrants. Notes issued under this Act shall bear interest at not more than the maximum interest rate allowed by "An Act to authorize public corporations to issue bonds, other evidences of indebtedness and tax anticipation warrants subject to interest rate limitations set forth therein", approved May 26, 1970, as amended, payable annually or semi-annually or at the time of payment of principal. The interest to the due date of the note may be represented by appropriate coupons and be executed by the facsimile signature of the appropriate treasurer. No notes shall be issued under this Act after the revenue to be anticipated is delinquent. No notes shall be issued or sold, unless such issuance and sale is authorized by a vote of at least 2/3 of the members elected to the governing body. The notes shall be sold to the highest responsible bidder after due advertisement and public opening of bids. The governing body may authorize notes to be issued and sold from time to time and in such amounts as the appropriate treasurer deems necessary to provide funds to pay obligations due or to accrue within the then fiscal year.
    Notes issued under this Act shall be received by any collector of revenues against which they are issued at par plus accrued interest, and when so received shall be cancelled with the same effect as though paid pursuant to this Act.
    Such notes shall be signed by the presiding officer of the governing body and countersigned by the treasurer. Such notes shall be payable to bearer provided that the notes may be registered as to principal in the name of the holder on the books of the treasurer and evidence of such registration shall be endorsed upon the back of notes so registered. After such registration no transfer shall be made except upon such books and similarly noted on the note unless the last registration was to bearer. Such notes may be re-registered from time to time in the name of the designated holder but such registration shall not affect the negotiability of the coupons attached.
