Short description: 
ABOLISH TOLL HWY AUTH                                                      

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois  Highway  Code  and  the  Toll  Highway  Act.      
   Abolishes  the  Illinois  State  Toll  Highway Authority on January 1,      
   2002.  Provides that at that time, all duties, obligations,  property,      
   assets,  and  powers,  including  the  power  to issue bonds, shall be      
   transferred to the Illinois Department  of  Transportation.   Provides      
   that  the  Department  shall take over the management and operation of      
   the existing toll highways in the State.  Provides that all  employees      
   of  the  Authority  on December 31, 2001 shall become employees of the      
   Department, subject to layoff or  reorganization  by  the  Department.      
   Provides  for  distribution  of the assets of the Authority's employee      
   pension plan.  Provides  that  on  and  after  January  1,  2002,  the      
   committee  that advises the Authority on the toll highway system shall      
   advise the Department instead.  Requires  the  advisory  committee  to      
   provide  recommendations to the Department regarding the existing toll      
   highways becoming freeways by January 1, 2013 or  sooner.    Effective      
          STATE DEBT NOTE (Economic and Fiscal Commission)                     
          HB 3171 does not change the amount of authorization for any          
          type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and, therefore,        
          would not affect the level of State indebtedness.
