(35 ILCS 200/18-130)
The proposition to authorize a maximum tax rate
other than that applicable may, in the discretion of the corporate authorities,
be restricted to the tax levy of a given year or series of years, either by
resolution of the corporate authorities or by the petitioners requesting a vote
on that proposition. The maximum rate limitation thereafter shall revert to
that prior to the referendum. If more than one proposition is submitted for any
one fund of any taxing district at any one election and a majority of votes
cast on any one or more of the propositions are in favor thereof, only the
maximum tax rate authorized in the proposition receiving the highest number of
favorable votes shall become effective. Propositions to establish a maximum
tax rate other than those applicable shall not be submitted more than once in
any one year.
No proposition to increase or decrease a maximum tax rate under
the referendum provisions of this Section, when there is no other applicable
statute for an increase or decrease in a tax rate limit by referendum or
otherwise, shall increase or decrease the maximum tax rate in effect on the
date of the referendum by more than 25%.
Except as provided in this Section and Sections 18-120 and 18-125, the
referenda authorized by Sections 18-120 and 18-125 shall be conducted in all
respects as provided by the general election law.
