Short description: 
ZOOLOGICAL PARKS-POPULATION                                                

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Forest  Preserve  Zoological  Parks  Act.  Lowers  the      
   minimum  population  requirement that allows the corporate authorities      
   of the forest preserve district to establish, maintain, and levy taxes      
   in support of zoological parks from 150,000 to 140,000 inhabitants.         
   Provides that 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 may not levy        
   taxes at an annual rate exceeding .01% of the value as equalized or         
   assessed by the Department of Revenue upon all the taxable property in      
   the district.                                                               
          HOUSING AFFORDABILITY NOTE                                           
          (Illinois Housing Development Authority)                             
          Because the legislation does not specify which forest preserve       
          districts in Illinois this will affect, and even then is volun-      
          tary regarding implementation, a calculation of impact cannot        
          be determined.
