TORT IMMUNITY-SCHOOL DISRICTS                                              

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Local Governmental  and  Governmental  Employees  Tort      
   Immunity  Act.    Makes  a  technical change in a Section concerning a      
   local tax to pay for the costs of liability insurance and other items.      
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
        Deletes everything after the enacting clause.  Amends  the  Local      
   Governmental  and  Governmental  Employees Tort Immunity Act. Provides      
   that    if    a    school    district    was    a    member    of    a      
   joint-self-health-insurance cooperative that  had  more  liability  in      
   outstanding  claims than revenue to pay those claims, the school board      
   of that district may by resolution make a one-time transfer  from  the      
   Tort  Immunity  Fund  to the Education Fund of an amount not to exceed      
   the amount of the liability claim that the school district owes to the      
   joint-self-health-insurance cooperative. Effective immediately.             
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Authorizes a school board to make a one-time  transfer  from  any      
   fund in which tort immunity moneys are maintained to the fund or funds      
   from  which  payments to a joint-self-health-insurance cooperative can      
   be or have been made (instead of from the Tort Immunity  Fund  to  the      
   Education  Fund)  in  connection with the payment of liability claims,      
   and allows such a transfer in an amount that the school district  paid      
   within  the  2  years immediately preceding the effective date of this      
   amendatory Act (as an alternative  to  an  amount  not  exceeding  the      
   amount   of   the  school  district's  liability  claim  owed  to  the      
   joint-self-health-insurance cooperative).                                   
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 2. (Tabled May 8, 2002)                            
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          105 ILCS 5/1D-1                                                      
          105 ILCS 5/14-7.02              from Ch. 122, par. 14-7.02           
          105 ILCS 5/14-7.02a             from Ch. 122, par. 14-7.02a          
          105 ILCS 5/14-13.01             from Ch. 122, par. 14-13.01          
          105 ILCS 5/17-17 new                                                 
          105 ILCS 5/29-5                 from Ch. 122, par. 29-5              
          105 ILCS 5/34-23.5 new                                               
        Amends the School Code. Provides that, in  lieu  of  issuing  tax      
   anticipation warrants, a school board may issue notes, bonds, or other      
   obligations (and in connection with that issuance, establish a line of      
   credit  with  a  bank) in an amount not to exceed 85% of the amount of      
   property taxes most  recently  levied  for  educational  and  building      
   purposes.  Provides that any school district receiving a payment under      
   a Section concerning block grant funding for Chicago, certain Sections      
   concerning special education, or a Section  concerning  transportation      
   reimbursement  may classify the funds that it receives in a particular      
   fiscal year or from general State aid as funds received in  connection      
   with  any  funding  program  for which it is entitled to receive funds      
   from the State in that fiscal year, regardless of the source or timing      
   of the receipt.  In the Section concerning  block  grant  funding  for      
   Chicago, provides that payments to the school district with respect to      
   each  program  for which payments to school districts generally, as of      
   the date of the amendatory Act, are on  a  reimbursement  basis  shall      
   continue to be made to the district on a reimbursement basis.
