Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
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 Acts
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide
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.

Resolution to issue bonds - Submission to voters.
Before any district as described in Section 19-8 shall avail itself
of the provisions of that section the governing body thereof shall
examine and consider the several teachers' orders or claims or liabilities of a Financial Oversight Panel established pursuant to Article 1H of this Code, or any or all of these,
proposed to be paid and if it appears that they were authorized and
allowed for proper school purposes it shall adopt a resolution so
declaring and set forth and describe in detail such teachers' orders and
claims and liabilities of a Financial Oversight Panel established pursuant to Article 1H of this Code and the adoption of the resolution shall establish the validity
thereof, notwithstanding the amount of such orders and claims and liabilities of a Financial Oversight Panel established pursuant to Article 1H of this Code may exceed
in whole or in part any applicable statutory debt limit in force at the
time the indebtedness evidenced by such orders and claims and liabilities of a Financial Oversight Panel established pursuant to Article 1H of this Code was incurred.
The resolution shall also declare the intention of the district to issue
bonds for the purpose of paying such teachers' orders or claims or liabilities of a Financial Oversight Panel established pursuant to Article 1H of this Code, and direct that notice of such intention be published at least once
in a newspaper published within the district and if there be no newspaper
published within the district then notice shall be published
in a newspaper having general circulation within the district. The
notice shall set forth (1) the time within which a petition may be filed
requesting the submission of the proposition to issue the bonds as
hereinafter in this Section provided; (2) the specific number of voters
required to sign the petition; and the date of the prospective referendum.
The recording officer of the district shall provide a petition form to
any individual requesting one. If within 30 days after such
publication of such notice a petition is filed with the recording
officer of the district, signed by the voters
of the district equal to 10% or more of the registered voters of the district
requesting that the proposition to issue bonds as authorized by
Section 19-8 be submitted to the voters thereof, then the district
shall not be authorized to issue bonds as provided by Section 19-8
until the proposition has been submitted to and approved by a majority
of the voters voting on the proposition at a regular scheduled
election. The board shall certify the proposition to the proper election
authorities for submission in accordance with the general election law.
If no such petition with the requisite number of signatures is filed within
said 30 days, or if any and all petitions filed are invalid, then the
district shall thereafter be authorized to issue bonds for the purposes and
as provided in Section 19-8.

to issue bonds for the purpose of the payment of any liabilities or
obligations imposed on such district resulting from the division of assets
as provided by Article 7 of this Act or Article 5 of this Act as it existed

board of such newly created district or the school board of a district a
portion of whose territory is included within the newly created district
shall pay any amounts due.
The school board of a district obligated or liable under the provisions

Any district which has complied with Section 19-9 and which is

or for paying liabilities or obligations imposed on any district resulting
from the division of assets as provided by Article 7 of this Act or Article
5 of this Act as it existed prior to July 1, 1952. The resolution shall set
forth the date, denomination, rate of interest and maturities of the bonds,

exceed the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended
at the time of the making of the contract, payable annually

body may determine, and mature in not more than 20 years from the date thereof or as otherwise authorized by law.
With respect to instruments for the payment of money issued under this
Section either before, on, or after the effective date of this amendatory
Act of 1989, it is and always has been the intention of the General
Assembly (i) that the Omnibus Bond Acts are and always have been
supplementary grants of power to issue instruments in accordance with the
Omnibus Bond Acts, regardless of any provision of this Act that may appear
to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts, (ii) that the
provisions of this Section are not a limitation on the supplementary
authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts, and (iii) that instruments
issued under this Section within the supplementary authority granted
by the Omnibus Bond Acts are not invalid because of any provision of
this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than
