        Amends the Tax Increment  Allocation  Redevelopment  Act  in  the

   designated by these terms before the effective date of this amendatory      
   Act.  Includes in the list of qualifications and redevelopment project      
   costs certain EPA remediation costs  for  the  clean-up  of  hazardous      
   waste  and  substances  and  underground  storage tanks. Provides that      
   professional services contracts, except architectural and  engineering

   increased operating costs attributable to  the  redevelopment  project      
   area.  Requires  all  TIFs  to  establish a joint review board to meet      
   annually.  Provides that the board may, rather  than  shall,  issue  a      
   written report describing the redevelopment plan and project. Requires      
   the  municipality  to  prepare,  as  part  of the eligibility study, a      
   housing impact study  addressing  certain  factors  if  tax  increment      
   revenues will be used to remove 10 or more inhabited residential units      
   in  a  redevelopment  project area. Requires the redevelopment plan to      
   provide for certain assistance if the plan would require removal of 10      
   or more  inhabited  residential  units.  Provides  that  redevelopment      
   project  costs include up to 75% of the annual interest costs incurred      
   by a redeveloper with regard to the redevelopment project  cost  in  a      
   year  for  the  financing  of rehabilitated or new housing for low and      
   very-low income families. Requires a municipality  to  hold  a  public      
   meeting if the municipality desires to propose a redevelopment plan or

   inhabited residential units or that provides for the removal of 10  or      
   more  inhabited  residential  units.   Revises  the distribution of ad      
   valorem taxes to  municipalities  with  redevelopment  projects  under

        Adds to the legislative findings for tax increment financing dis-
