Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Municipal Code. Gives non-home rule municipalities with a population of more than 2,000 the power to exercise all power provided to home rule units under Section 6 of Article VII of the Illinois Constitution, except for the powers to tax, to impose fees, and to incur debt. Provides that a home rule municipal retailer's occupation tax may be imposed up to a 1% increment if the corporate authorities of a home rule municipality by ordinance or resolution call for the submission to the electors of the municipality the question of whether the municipality shall impose such a tax or increase the rate of such a tax (rather than only shall be imposed in 1/4% increments). Effective immediately.
