Short description: 
RAILROAD LAND ACQUISITION                                                  

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Railroad Incorporation Act and  the  Illinois  Vehicle      
   Code. Provides that a railroad corporation may acquire through eminent      
   domain  proceedings title to real estate necessary for the location of      
   depots, station buildings, repair shops,  or  mainline  right  of  way      
   (rather  than for those purposes and for location of any right of way,      
   for purposes of the railroad's incorporation or the transaction of its      
   business, or for any  lawful  purpose  connected  with  the  building,      
   operating, or running of the railroad). Establishes procedures to be        
   followed when the Illinois Commerce Commission receives an application      
   for a certificate of public convenience and necessity allowing a            
   railroad carrier to acquire real estate by eminent domain. Provides         
   that if any portion of the amendatory Act is found to be invalid, that      
   portion's  invalidity  shall not affect the enforceability or validity      
   of the remainder of the Amendatory Act. Deletes language providing for      
   acquisition  by quick take proceedings of land for the construction of      
   an industrial harbor railroad port adjacent  to  the  Illinois  River.      
   Effective immediately.
