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.

5 ILCS 70/8

    (5 ILCS 70/8) (from Ch. 1, par. 1107)
    Sec. 8. Omnibus Bond Acts.
    (a) A citation to the Omnibus Bond Acts is a citation to all of the following Acts, collectively, as amended from time to time: the Bond Authorization Act, the Registered Bond Act, the Municipal Bond Reform Act, the Local Government Debt Reform Act, subsection (a) of Section 1-7 of the Property Tax Extension Limitation Act (now repealed), subsection (a) of Section 18-190 of the Property Tax Code, the Uniform Facsimile Signature of Public Officials Act, the Local Government Bond Validity Act, the Illinois Finance Authority Act, the Public Funds Investment Act, the Local Government Credit Enhancement Act, the Local Government Defeasance of Debt Law, the Intergovernmental Cooperation Act, the Local Government Financial Planning and Supervision Act, the Special Assessment Supplemental Bond and Procedures Act, Section 12-5 of the Election Code, the State University Certificates of Participation Act, and any similar Act granting additional omnibus bond powers to governmental entities generally, whether enacted before, on, or after June 6, 1989 (the effective date of Public Act 86-4).
    (b) The General Assembly recognizes that the proliferation of governmental entities has resulted in the enactment of hundreds of statutory provisions relating to the borrowing and other powers of governmental entities. The General Assembly addresses and has addressed problems common to all such governmental entities so that they have equal access to the municipal bond market. It has been, and will continue to be, the intention of the General Assembly to enact legislation applicable to governmental entities in an omnibus fashion, as has been done in the provisions of the Omnibus Bond Acts.
    (c) It is and always has been the intention of the General Assembly that the Omnibus Bond Acts are and always have been supplementary grants of power, cumulative in nature and in addition to any power or authority granted in any other laws of the State. The Omnibus Bond Acts are supplementary grants of power when applied in connection with any similar grant of power or limitation contained in any other law of the State, whether or not the other law is enacted or amended after an Omnibus Bond Act or appears to be more restrictive than an Omnibus Bond Act, unless the General Assembly expressly declares in such other law that a specifically named Omnibus Bond Act does not apply.
    (d) All instruments providing for the payment of money executed by or on behalf of any governmental entity organized by or under the laws of this State, including without limitation the State, to carry out a public governmental or proprietary function, acting through its corporate authorities, or which any governmental entity has assumed or agreed to pay, which were:
        (1) issued or authorized to be issued by proceedings
adopted by such corporate authorities before June 6, 1989 (the effective date of Public Act 86-4);
        (2) issued or authorized to be issued in accordance
with the procedures set forth in or pursuant to any authorization contained in any of the Omnibus Bond Acts; and
        (3) issued or authorized to be issued for any purpose
authorized by the laws of this State, are valid and legally binding obligations of the governmental entity issuing such instruments, payable in accordance with their terms.
