Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

(from Ch. 127, par. 666)
The State of Illinois is authorized to issue,
sell, and provide for the retirement of General Obligation Bonds of the State
of Illinois in the amount of $4,839,025,000, at any time and
from time to time outstanding, for the purpose of refunding
any State of Illinois general obligation Bonds then outstanding, including
the payment of any redemption premium thereon, any reasonable expenses of
such refunding, any interest accrued or to accrue to the earliest
or any subsequent date of redemption or maturity of such outstanding
Bonds and any interest to accrue to the first interest payment on the
refunding Bonds; provided that all non-refunding Bonds in an issue that includes
refunding Bonds shall mature no later
than the final maturity date of Bonds being refunded; provided that no refunding Bonds shall be offered for sale unless the net present value of debt service savings to be achieved by the issuance of the refunding Bonds is 3% or more of the principal amount of the refunding Bonds to be issued; and further provided that, except for refunding Bonds sold in fiscal year 2009, 2010, 2011, 2017, or 2018, the maturities of the refunding Bonds shall not extend beyond the maturities of the Bonds they refund, so that for each fiscal year in the maturity schedule of a particular issue of refunding Bonds, the total amount of refunding principal maturing and redemption amounts due in that fiscal year and all prior fiscal years in that schedule shall be greater than or equal to the total amount of refunded principal and redemption amounts that had been due over that year and all prior fiscal years prior to the refunding.
The Governor shall notify the State Treasurer and
Comptroller of such refunding. The proceeds received from the sale
of refunding Bonds shall be used for the retirement at maturity or
redemption of such outstanding Bonds on any maturity or redemption date
and, pending such use, shall be placed in escrow, subject to such terms and
conditions as shall be provided for in the Bond Sale Order relating to the
Refunding Bonds. Proceeds not needed for deposit in an escrow account shall
be deposited in the General Obligation Bond Retirement and Interest Fund.
This Act shall constitute an irrevocable and continuing appropriation of all
amounts necessary to establish an escrow account for the purpose of refunding
outstanding general obligation Bonds and to pay the reasonable expenses of such
refunding and of the issuance and sale of the refunding Bonds. Any such
escrowed proceeds may be invested and reinvested
in direct obligations of the United States of America, maturing at such
time or times as shall be appropriate to assure the
prompt payment, when due, of the principal of and interest and redemption
premium, if any,
on the refunded Bonds. After the terms of the escrow have been fully
satisfied, any remaining balance of such proceeds and interest, income and
profits earned or realized on the investments thereof shall be paid into
the General Revenue Fund. The liability of the State upon the Bonds shall
continue, provided that the holders thereof shall thereafter be entitled to
payment only out of the moneys deposited in the escrow account.
Except as otherwise herein provided in this Section, such refunding Bonds
shall in all other respects be subject to the terms and conditions of this Act.
