16-102 of this Act providing service to more than 12,500
customers in this State on January 1, 1995 shall contribute
annually a pro rata share of a total amount of $5,500,000 based
upon the number of kilowatt-hours delivered to retail customers
within this State by each such electric utility in the 12
months preceding the year of contribution. On or before May 1

and notify the Illinois Department of Revenue of the pro rata
share owed by each electric utility based upon information
supplied annually to the Commission. On or before June 1 of
each year, the Department of Revenue shall send written

shall be subject to appropriation by the General Assembly. If
an electric utility does not remit its pro rata share to the
Department of Revenue, the Department of Revenue must inform
the Illinois Commerce Commission of such failure. The Illinois
Commerce Commission may then revoke the certification of that
electric utility. This Section is repealed on April 1, 2015
