    AN ACT concerning local government.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Downstate Forest Preserve District Act is
amended by changing Section 18.6a as follows:
    (70 ILCS 805/18.6a)  (from Ch. 96 1/2, par. 6340a)
    Sec. 18.6a. Each forest preserve district which has on its
property a sanitary landfill or pollution control facility may
create, maintain and increase a separate fund to be known as
the "Landfill Expense Fund" for the purpose of paying all
costs and expenses incurred by said forest preserve district
for or as a result of that sanitary landfill or pollution
control facility either during its operation or after its
closure, including but not limited to the cost of maintenance,
monitoring, sampling or testing of groundwater or landfill
gas, fencing, erosion control, improvements, restoration,
filling, covering, revegetation, seeding, regrading,
compacting, excavating or removal of materials, remedial
action, response, the collection, treatment or disposal of
leachate and landfill gas, preventive and corrective actions
necessary or appropriate in circumstances which will or may
cause an immediate or long-term danger to the environment or
the public health or which will or may prevent or delay public
usage of the property, and payment of damages or settlements
awarded or made as a result of the operation of the sanitary
landfill or pollution control facility, either during its
operation or after its closure. This fund may be maintained
for a period not to exceed 40 years from the date of closure of
the facility and may be invested as provided in this Act and
interest accumulated thereon.
    In order to accumulate monies for this fund, each forest
preserve district having such a fund may, in addition to other
charges imposed for the deposit of material at the sanitary
landfill or pollution control facility by the owner or
operator of the landfill, also impose a charge upon the
operator or users of a landfill or facility in existence on or
before July 1, 1988 sufficient to provide a fund which will pay
for the costs set forth herein; however, such charge shall not
exceed 70 per cubic yard of solid waste permanently disposed
of at the landfill or facility.
