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.

615 ILCS 90/7.2

    (615 ILCS 90/7.2) (from Ch. 19, par. 1209)
    Sec. 7.2. The Agency may charge reasonable user fees for recreational and commercial boating, and has the authority to issue revenue bonds and to borrow funds from any financial lending institution, but shall not have the authority to impose any property tax. The Agency shall devise a schedule of user fees. The Agency shall conduct public hearings before establishing or changing user fees or soliciting the issuance of revenue bonds or the borrowing of funds. The Agency may issue stickers as evidence of the payment of user fees. The Agency may impose a civil penalty on persons who knowingly use the waterway without paying a required user fee in an amount not exceeding $500 for each violation. Such civil penalty may be recovered by the Agency in a civil action.
    The Agency may also sell its dredging materials from the waterway as reclaimed topsoil.
    At least 75% of the gross income collected under this Section shall be used exclusively for projects designed to maintain and improve the waterway. Such projects may include, but are not limited to, dredging, site acquisition for silt deposit, water safety, and water quality projects. Any funds which have not been expended by the end of a fiscal year may be accumulated in a revolving fund.
