Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Highway Code and the Conveyances Act. Provides that a public water service or public sanitary service utility must pay for any physical damage it causes to improvements lawfully located in a road or highway right-of-way. Provides that property that includes a portion of a highway or road but is subject to the highway or road shall not be considered to "end" at the highway or road. Provides that a utility must obtain consent to use a road or highway for public utility purposes from a lawful owner of the roadway or highway property (i.e. a person whose deed of conveyance lawfully includes the property, whether or not made subject to the highway or road) who does not pay taxes by reason of the farmland assessment provisions of the Property Tax Code. Provides that the term "conveyance" expressly excludes a road, street, highway, or alley if the legal description expressly states that the road, street, highway, or alley is excepted from the property being conveyed. Provides that the rights accruing to the abutting property owner shall be subject to all existing uses and easements located within the right-of-way and shall also be subject to such future uses and easements as may be permitted to be located within the right-of-way under the provisions of the Illinois Highway Code. Makes other changes.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides that, when consent to install or maintain service is obtained from a highway authority, the entity obtaining the consent still must obtain the rights or the consent of the owner of the land over or under which the highway is located, except when no owner has paid real estate taxes on the property for 2 years prior to the grant of consent.
