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.

105 ILCS 5/17-2.4

    (105 ILCS 5/17-2.4) (from Ch. 122, par. 17-2.4)
    Sec. 17-2.4. Tax for area vocational education building programs. The school board of any district having a population of less than 500,000 inhabitants may, by proper resolution, levy an annual tax of not more than .05% upon the value as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue for such purpose, and may accumulate such tax for not more than 5 years, for area vocational education building purposes, including the purposes authorized by Section 10-22.31b of this Act, upon condition that there are not sufficient funds available in the operations and maintenance fund of the district to pay the cost thereof. Such tax shall not be levied without prior approval of the State Superintendent of Education and prior approval by a majority of the electors voting upon the proposition at an election, the proposition having been certified by the secretary of the school board to the proper election authorities for submission to the electorate in accordance with the general election law.
    When the school boards of two or more districts enter into a joint agreement for an area vocational education building program under Section 10-22.31b their agreement may provide, or may be amended to provide, that the question of the levy of the tax authorized by this Section shall be certified to the proper election authorities, for submission to the voters of all of the participating districts in accordance with the general election law, in the same election and that the approval of that levy by a majority of the electors voting upon the proposition in the area comprised of the participating districts, considered as a whole, shall be deemed to authorize that levy in each participating district without regard to the passage or failure of the proposition in any district considered separately. However, the school board of any district may withdraw from the joint agreement by reason of the failure of the electors of that district to approve the proposed levy.
