BERMAN, LINK AND O'MALLEY.
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the School Code and the General State Aid Continuing
Appropriation Law. For supplementary grants in aid, provides that the
amount of the aggregate general State aid in combination with
supplemental general State aid for which each school district is
eligible for the 1998-1999 school year and any subsequent school year
(instead of just the 1998-1999 school year) shall be no less than the
amount of the aggregate general State aid entitlement that was
received by the district for the 1997-98 school year and removes the
provision that requires the supplementary payments that districts are
to receive to be prorated if the amount appropriated is insufficient.
Adds references to provisions concerning supplementary grants in aid
to the General State Aid Continuing Appropriation Law. Effective July

Further amends the Section concerning the basis for apportionment
of general State financial aid and supplemental general State aid. In
provisions concerning available local resources, provides that, for
school districts maintaining grades 9 through 12, local property tax
revenues per pupil shall be the applicable equalized assessed
valuation of the district multiplied by 1.10% (instead of 1.20%) and
divided by the district's Average Daily Attendance figure. In
provisions concerning equalized assessed valuation data, provides that
the real property equalized assessed valuation for a school district
shall be adjusted by subtracting from the real property value an
amount computed by dividing the amount of any abatement of taxes by
1.10% (instead of 1.20%) for a district maintaining grades 9 through
12 and adjusted by an amount computed by dividing the amount of any
abatement of taxes by 1.10% (instead of 1.20%). In provisions
concerning supplemental general State aid, changes the manner of
determining the Low Income Concentration Level of school districts of
less than 500,000 inhabitants for the 1999-2000 and 2000-2001 school
years. Amends the School Construction Law and the School Code.
Requires the Capital Development Board to certify to a school district
that has been issued a grant entitlement for a school construction
project the amount of the project cost that the district will be
required to finance with non-grant funds. Authorizes such a district,
if it has no unused bonding capacity or if its remaining bonding
capacity is less than the amount certified by the Capital Development
Board, to by referendum incur additional indebtedness by the issuance
of school construction project bonds in an amount not exceeding the
project cost that the district must finance with non-grant funds.
Makes other related changes. The provisions concerning school
construction effective immediately.
