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.

    (65 ILCS 5/11-80-5) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-80-5)
    Sec. 11-80-5. The corporate authorities of each municipality, with the concurrence of two-thirds of all of the alderpersons, trustees or commissioners elected therein, may levy and collect annually, in addition to all other taxes now authorized by law, a tax of not to exceed .05% of the value, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue, of the taxable property in the municipality, to be used exclusively for the purpose of lighting streets. The tax authorized by this Section is in addition to taxes for general corporate purposes authorized by Section 8-3-1.
    The foregoing tax rate limitation, insofar as it is applicable to municipalities of less than 500,000 population, may be increased or decreased under the referendum provisions of the General Revenue Law of Illinois.
