Short description: 
FOREST PRESERVE ZOOS                                                       

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends  the  Forest  Preserve  Zoological  Parks   Act.   Changes      
   population   requirements   for   allowing  corporate  authorities  to      
   establish zoological parks in counties with less than  3,000,000  from      
   forest  preserve  districts containing a population of 150,000 or more      
   to forest preserve districts containing a  population  of  140,000  or      
   more. Provides that the annual tax rate for a forest preserve district      
   located in a county with a population in excess of 140,000, instead of      
   150,000,  but  less  than  200,000  and  that  is  contiguous  to  the      
   Mississippi  River  shall  not exceed .01% of the value of all taxable      
   property in the district. Effective immediately.                            
          HOUSING AFFORDABILITY NOTE                                           
          (Illinois Housing Development Authority)                             
          The new authority to potentially increase local property taxes       
          will have a potential direct impact on homeowners. However,          
          because the legislation does not specify which forest preserve       
          districts in Illinois this will affect, and even then is             
          voluntary regarding implementation, a calculation of impact          
          cannot be determined.
