   and amends the School Code, the State Finance Act, the Illinois Income

   amount equal to the corresponding 50% reduction that is required to be      
   made in the annual extension of  the  real  property  taxes  that  are      
   levied  by  the district against residential property for educational,

   district levies made to cover amounts lost because of the repeal of         
   the local income tax for schools as formerly imposed by the district        
   under the Local Option School District Income Tax Act. Changes the          
   school State aid formula to provide that any tax abatement required         
   under theLocal Option School District Income Tax Act shall be disre-        
   garded in computing the operating tax rate of school districts for          
   State aid formula purposes and shall not otherwise affect the compu-        
   tation or distribution of State aid for school districts. Effective
