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.

60 ILCS 1/182-5

    (60 ILCS 1/182-5)
    Sec. 182-5. Primary health care special district; tax.
    (a) In any township in a county with a population of 25,000 or less containing a federally designated health manpower shortage area, the township board may provide for primary health care under an intergovernmental cooperation agreement with another unit of local government or under contract with physicians, a physician group, a professional service corporation, a medical corporation, a health maintenance organization, a voluntary health service plan, a limited health service plan, a hospital for out-patient services, or a federally qualified health center.
    (b) For purposes described in subsection (a), the township board may levy an annual tax of not more than 0.095% of the value of all the taxable property in the township, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue, upon that property. Before a tax may be levied under this Section, the township board shall certify that question to the proper election officials in accordance with General Election Law, who shall submit the proposition by referendum to all the voters in the area to be served. The referendum shall be in substantially the following form:
    Shall (name of township) be authorized to levy an annual tax of not more than 0.095% of the value of all the taxable property in the township to provide primary health care to its citizens?
    The votes shall be recorded as "Yes" or "No".
    If the majority of the voters voting on the proposition vote in favor of it, the tax levy is authorized. If a majority of the vote is against the proposition, the tax levy is not authorized. No tax may be levied under this Section, however, with respect to any property that is subject to any other tax levied for the sole purpose of providing primary health care.
    (c) Any territory of a special primary health care district that is annexed to a municipality that provides primary health care within its corporate limits shall be automatically disconnected from the township primary health care district.
