      New Act
      SEE INDEX
          Creates the Civic Center  Code.  Replaces  existing  Acts
      creating civic center authorities in various locations in the
      State  (except  for  the  Metropolitan  Pier  and  Exposition
      Authority  in Chicago). Sets forth the authorization for each
      civic center authority in a separate  Article  of  the  Code.
      Sets forth standard civic center provisions common to several
      civic   center  authorities  and  incorporates  the  standard
      provisions by reference into the Articles  authorizing  those
      civic  center  authorities.  Repeals the various civic center
      Acts that are continued in the Code.   Makes  no  substantive
      changes.

 1        AN ACT concerning civic centers.
 2        WHEREAS,  Codification  of laws relating to civic centers
 3    will achieve the goals of (i)  consolidating  the  many  laws
 4    relating  to  civic centers; (ii) updating the often obsolete
 5    language  currently  in  use  in  these  many   laws;   (iii)
 6    incorporating   uniform   terminology   that  will  ensure  a
 7    constancy of understanding and interpretation of these  laws;
 8    and  (iv)  eliminating  the  need  for  duplicative  language
 9    throughout these laws; and
10        WHEREAS,  The  Illinois General Assembly seeks to achieve
11    these goals by consolidating the many civic  center  laws  of
12    Illinois  into  a  Civic  Center  Code,  without  making  any
13    substantive changes in the meaning, effect, or application of
14    those laws; and
15        WHEREAS,  Because  this Act is a codification of existing
16    law, the following matters of form are used:
17        (a)  in Articles 5 through 280, the parenthetic  citation
18    before a Section in the form "(from XX ILCS XX/XX)" (i) is an
19    informational  reference  to  the  prior  law  from which the
20    Section is derived and (ii) is not part of the  text  of  the
21    law;
22        (b)  in Articles 5 through 280, in the text of a Section,
23    (i)  matter  that  is  stricken indicates a deletion from the
24    prior law and (ii) matter that is  underscored  indicates  an
25    addition to the prior law; and
26        (c)  in  Articles 5 through 280, the parenthetic citation
27    after a Section in the form "(Source: P.A. XX-XXXX)"  (i)  is
28    an  informational reference to the most recent sources of the
29    continued text in the Session Laws of Illinois  and  (ii)  is
30    not part of the law; therefore
31        Be  it  enacted  by  the People of the State of Illinois,
32    represented in the General Assembly:

15    that it is non-negotiable, all such bonds shall be negotiable

 5    deliver  a  trust  agreement  or agreements; provided that no
 6    lien upon any physical property of  the  Authority  shall  be
 7    created thereby.
 8        A  remedy  for  any breach or default of the terms of any
 9    such trust agreement by the  Authority  may  be  by  mandamus
10    proceedings  in any court of competent jurisdiction to compel
11    performance and compliance therewith, but the trust agreement
12    may prescribe by whom or on whose behalf such action  may  be
13    instituted.

30    any advertisement.

13        From  and  after  the  issuance  of  any  bonds as herein
14    provided it shall be the duty of the corporate authorities of
15    the Authority to fix and establish rates, charges, rents, and
16    fees  for  the  use  of  facilities  acquired,   constructed,

19    revenues of the Authority, to pay:
20        (a)  the   cost   of   leasing,  maintaining,  repairing,
21    regulating and operating the facilities; and
22        (b)  the bonds and interest thereon as they shall  become
23    due, and all sinking fund requirements and other requirements
24    provided  by  the  ordinance  authorizing the issuance of the

 6    injunction, or other civil  actions  or  proceedings  in  any
 7    court  of  competent  jurisdiction  to compel performance and
 8    compliance therewith, but the trust agreement  may  prescribe
 9    by whom or on whose behalf such action may be instituted.
10        Before  any  such  bonds  (excepting refunding bonds) are
11    sold, the entire authorized issue, or any part thereof, shall
12    be offered for sale as a unit after advertising for  bids  at
13    least  3  times  in  a daily newspaper of general circulation
14    published in the metropolitan area, the last  publication  to

18    bids  shall  be  sealed,  filed  and  opened  as  provided by
19    ordinance and the bonds shall be awarded to the  highest  and
20    best  bidder  or  bidders therefor.  The Authority shall have
21    the right to reject all bids and readvertise for bids in  the
22    manner  provided  for in the initial advertisement.  However,
23    if no bids are received such bonds may be sold  at  not  less
24    than  par  value, without further advertising, within 60 days
25    after the bids are required  to  be  filed  pursuant  to  any

31    exercising its powers under this Article.
32        For the purpose  of  evidencing  the  obligation  of  the
33    Authority  to  repay  any  money  borrowed  as aforesaid, the
HB0235 Enrolled            -14-                LRB9000879DJcd
 1    Authority may, pursuant to an ordinance adopted by the Board,

 3    revenue  bonds,  and  may  also  from  time to time issue and
 4    dispose of its interest bearing revenue bonds to  refund  any
 5    bonds  at maturity or pursuant to redemption provisions or at
 6    any time before maturity with  the  consent  of  the  holders
 7    thereof.  All  such  bonds  shall  be payable solely from the
 8    revenues or income to be derived from the fairs, expositions,
 9    exhibitions,  rentals  and  leases   and   other   authorized
10    activities  operated  by it, and from funds, if any, received
11    and to be received by the Authority from  any  other  source.
12    Such  bonds  may  bear such date or dates, may mature at such
13    time or times not exceeding 40 years  from  their  respective
14    dates, may bear interest at such rate or rates, not exceeding

22    executed  in  such  manner  and  may  contain  such terms and
23    covenants, all as may be provided in said ordinance. In  case
24    any officer whose signature appears on any bond ceases (after
25    attaching  his signature) to hold office, his signature shall
26    nevertheless be valid and effective  for  all  purposes.  The
27    holder   or   holders  of  any  bonds,  or  interest  coupons
28    appertaining  thereto  issued  by  the  Authority  may  bring
29    mandamus, injunction, or other civil actions  or  proceedings
30    to  compel the performance and observance by the Authority or
31    any of its officers, agents or employees of any  contract  or
32    covenant made by the Authority with the holders of such bonds
33    or  interest  coupons, to compel the Authority and any of its

 3    authorizing  their  issuance, and to enjoin the Authority and

 8    that it is non-negotiable, all such bonds shall be negotiable
 9    instruments under the Uniform Commercial Code.
10        The  bonds  shall be sold by the corporate authorities of
11    the Authority in such manner as  said  corporate  authorities
12    shall  determine,  except  that if issued to bear interest at
13    the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as
14    amended at the time of the making of the contract, the  bonds
15    shall  be sold for not less than par and accrued interest and
16    except that the selling price of bonds bearing interest at  a
17    rate  of  less  than  the maximum rate authorized by the Bond
18    Authorization Act, as amended at the time of  the  making  of
19    the  contract,  shall  be  such that the interest cost to the
20    Authority of the money received from the sale of bonds  shall
21    not   exceed   the   maximum  rate  authorized  by  the  Bond
22    Authorization Act, as amended at the time of  the  making  of
23    the  contract, computed to absolute maturity of said bonds or

18    injunction,  or  other  civil  actions  or proceedings in any
19    court of competent jurisdiction  to  compel  performance  and
20    compliance  therewith,  but the trust agreement may prescribe
21    by whom or on whose behalf such action may be instituted.
22        Before any such bonds  (excepting  refunding  bonds)  are
23    sold  the entire authorized issue, or any part thereof, shall
24    be offered for sale as a unit after advertising for  bids  at

 5        With respect to instruments  for  the  payment  of  money
 6    issued  under  this  Section  either before, on, or after the
 7    effective date of Public Act 86-4, it is and always has  been
 8    the  intention  of  the General Assembly (i) that the Omnibus
 9    Bond Acts are and always have been  supplementary  grants  of
10    power  to  issue  instruments  in accordance with the Omnibus
11    Bond Acts, regardless of any provision of this  Article  that
12    may  appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those
13    Acts, (ii) that the provisions of  this  Section  are  not  a
14    limitation  on  the  supplementary  authority  granted by the
15    Omnibus Bond Acts, and (iii) that  instruments  issued  under
16    this  Section  within  the supplementary authority granted by
17    the  Omnibus  Bond  Acts  are  not  invalid  because  of  any
18    provision of this Article that may appear to be  or  to  have
19    been more restrictive than those Acts.
20        Section  2-55.  Bonds;  nature of indebtedness.  Under no

24    State,  nor shall any such bond or obligation be or become an
25    indebtedness of the  Authority  within  the  purview  of  any
26    constitutional  limitation  or  provision,  and  it  shall be
27    plainly stated on the face of each such bond that it does not
28    constitute such an indebtedness or obligation but is  payable
29    solely  from  the  revenues  or  income  as  provided in this
30    Article.

13    owned or controlled by private or public persons or officers;
14    provided, however, that nothing contained in this Section may

26        A remedy for any breach or default of the  terms  of  any
27    such  trust  agreement  by  the  Authority may be by mandamus

 7    ordinance and the bonds shall be awarded to the  highest  and
 8    best bidder or bidders therefor. The Authority shall have the

18    1989, it is and always has been the intention of the  General
19    Assembly  (i)  that the Omnibus Bond Acts are and always have
20    been supplementary grants of power to  issue  instruments  in
21    accordance  with  the  Omnibus  Bond  Acts, regardless of any
22    provision of this Article Act that may appear  to  be  or  to
23    have  been  more  restrictive  than those Acts, (ii) that the
24    provisions of this  Section  are  not  a  limitation  on  the
25    supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts, and
26    (iii)  that instruments issued under this Section  within the
27    supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts  are
28    not invalid because of any provision of this Article Act that
29    may  appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those

 2        Section  20-25.  Borrowing;  revenue  bonds. Sec. 11. The
 3    Authority shall have the continuing power to borrow money for
 4    the purpose of carrying out and  performing  its  duties  and
 5    exercising its rights and powers under this Article Act.
 6        For  the  purpose  of  evidencing  the  obligation of the
 7    Authority to repay  any  money  borrowed  as  aforesaid,  the
 8    Authority may, pursuant to an ordinance adopted by the Board,
 9    from  time  to time issue and dispose of its interest bearing
10    revenue bonds, and may also  from  time  to  time  issue  and
11    dispose  of  its interest bearing revenue bonds to refund any
12    of  its  interest  bearing  revenue  bonds  or  its   general
13    obligation  bonds  at  maturity  or  pursuant  to  redemption
14    provisions or at any time before maturity with the consent of
15    the holders thereof.  All such interest bearing revenue bonds
16    of  the  Authority  shall  be payable solely from such of the
17    revenues or income to be derived from  the  fairs,  exhibits,
18    shows  and events and other authorized activities operated by
19    it, the charges made for the use of its  facilities  and  the
20    funds,  if  any, received and to be received by the Authority
21    from any  other  source  as  are  pledged  by  the  ordinance
22    authorizing  the  bonds.   Such  bonds  may bear such date or
23    dates, may mature at such time or times not  exceeding  forty
24    years  from their respective dates, may bear interest at such
25    rate or rates, not exceeding the greater of (i)  the  maximum
26    rate  authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at
27    the time of the making of the contract, or (ii) 8% per  annum
28    payable  semi-annually,  may  be in such form, may carry such
29    registration privileges, may be  payable  at  such  place  or
30    places,  may be made subject to redemption in such manner and
31    upon such terms, with or without premium as is stated on  the
32    face  thereof, may be executed in such manner and may contain
33    such terms and covenants, all as  may  be  provided  in  said
34    ordinance.   In  case  any officer whose signature appears on
HB0235 Enrolled            -56-                LRB9000879DJcd
 1    any bond ceases  (after  attaching  his  signature)  to  hold
 2    office,   his  signature  shall  nevertheless  be  valid  and
 3    effective for all purposes.  The holder  or  holders  of  any
 4    bonds, or interest coupons appertaining thereto issued by the
 5    Authority  may bring suits at law or proceedings in equity to
 6    compel the performance and observance by the Authority or any
 7    of its officers, agents  or  employees  of  any  contract  or
 8    covenant made by the Authority with the holders of such bonds
 9    or  interest  coupons, and to compel the Authority and any of
10    its officers, agents  or  employees  to  perform  any  duties
11    required  to  be  performed for the benefit of the holders of
12    any such bonds or interest coupons by the provisions  of  the
13    ordinance  authorizing  their  issuance,  and  to  enjoin the
14    Authority and any of its officers, agents or  employees  from
15    taking  any  action  in  conflict  with  any such contract or
16    covenant.
17        Notwithstanding the form and tenor of any such bonds  and
18    in  the  absence  of  any express recital on the face thereof
19    that it is non-negotiable, all such bonds shall be negotiable
20    instruments under the law of the State of Illinois.
21        The bonds shall be sold by the corporate  authorities  of
22    the  Authority  in  such manner as said corporate authorities
23    shall determine, except that if issued to  bear  interest  at
24    the  greater  of  (i) the maximum rate authorized by the Bond
25    Authorization Act, as amended at the time of  the  making  of
26    the  contract,  or  (ii)  the rate of 8% per annum, the bonds
27    shall be sold for not less than par and accrued interest  and
28    except  that the selling price of bonds bearing interest at a
29    rate of less  than  the  greater  of  (i)  the  maximum  rate
30    authorized  by  the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at the
31    time of the making of the contract,  or  (ii)  8%  per  annum
32    shall  be such that the interest cost to the Authority of the
33    money received from the sale of the bonds  shall  not  exceed
34    the  greater  of  (i) the maximum rate authorized by the Bond
HB0235 Enrolled            -57-                LRB9000879DJcd

 3    maturity of said bonds according to standard tables  of  bond
 4    values.
 5        From  and  after  the  issuance  of  any  bonds as herein
 6    provided it shall be the duty of the corporate authorities of
 7    the Authority to fix and establish rates, charges, rents  and
 8    fees   for  the  use  of  facilities  acquired,  constructed,
 9    reconstructed, extended or improved with the proceeds of  the
10    sale  of  said  bonds  sufficient  at  all  times, with other
11    revenues of the Authority so pledged to pay:
12        (a)  the cost of maintaining, repairing,  regulating  and
13    operating the said facilities; and
14        (b)  the  bonds and interest thereon as they shall become
15    due, and all sinking fund requirements and other requirements
16    provided by the ordinance authorizing  the  issuance  of  the
17    bonds  or  as  provided  by  any  trust agreement executed to
18    secure payment thereof.
19        To secure the payment of any or all of such bonds and for
20    the purpose of setting forth the covenants and undertaking of
21    the Authority in connection with the issuance thereof and the
22    issuance of any additional bonds payable  from  such  revenue
23    income  to  be  derived  from  the fairs, exhibits, shows and
24    events and from charges made for the use of its facilities or
25    for admissions to its events, or from other revenue, if  any,
26    the  Authority  may  execute and deliver a trust agreement or
27    agreements; provided that no lien upon any physical  property
28    of the Authority shall be created thereby.
29        A  remedy  for  any breach or default of the terms of any
30    such trust agreement by the Authority may be had by  mandamus
31    proceedings  in  the  circuit court to compel performance and
32    compliance therewith, but the trust agreement  may  prescribe
33    by whom or on whose behalf such action may be instituted.
34        Before any such revenue bonds (excepting refunding bonds)
HB0235 Enrolled            -58-                LRB9000879DJcd
 1    are  sold  the  entire authorized issue, or any part thereof,
 2    shall be offered for sale as a  unit  after  advertising  for
 3    bids  at  least  3  times  in  a  daily  newspaper of general
 4    circulation published in  the  metropolitan  area,  the  last
 5    publication  to  be at least 10 days before bids are required
 6    to be filed.  Copies of such advertisement may  be  published
 7    in  any  newspaper  or  financial  publication  in the United
 8    States.  All bids  shall  be  sealed,  filed  and  opened  as
 9    provided  by  ordinance and the bonds shall be awarded to the
10    highest and best bidder or bidders therefor.   The  Authority
11    shall  have  the right to reject all bids and readvertise for
12    bids in the manner provided for in the initial advertisement.
13    However, if no bids are received such bonds may  be  sold  at
14    not  less than par value, without further advertising, within
15    60 days after the bids are required to be filed  pursuant  to
16    any advertisement.
17        With  respect  to  instruments  for  the payment of money
18    issued under this Section either before,  on,  or  after  the
19    effective  date  of  Public  Act  86-4 this amendatory Act of
20    1989, it is and always has been the intention of the  General
21    Assembly  (i)  that the Omnibus Bond Acts are and always have
22    been supplementary grants of power to  issue  instruments  in
23    accordance  with  the  Omnibus  Bond  Acts, regardless of any
24    provision of this Article Act that may appear  to  be  or  to
25    have  been  more  restrictive  than those Acts, (ii) that the
26    provisions of this  Section  are  not  a  limitation  on  the
27    supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts, and
28    (iii)  that  instruments issued under this Section within the

30    not invalid because of any provision of this Article Act that
31    may  appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those

13    or services are required for equipment or services previously
14    furnished  or  contracted  for,  (ii)  when the nature of the
15    services required is such that competitive bidding is not  in

 2    but in no case shall any contracts be awarded  to  any  other
 3    than  the  highest  bidder  (in  case of sale, concession, or
 4    lease)  or  the  lowest  bidder  (in  case  of  purchase   or

19    bids and to readvertise for  bids.   If  no  responsible  and
20    satisfactory  bid  within  the  terms of the advertisement is
21    received,  the  Committee  may  award  the  contract  without
22    competitive bidding if the contract is not less  advantageous

23    bids shall  be  sealed,  filed  and  opened  as  provided  by

28        (a)  For the sole purpose  of  obtaining  funds  for  the
29    support, construction, maintenance or financing of a facility
30    of  the  Authority,  the corporate authorities of the City of
31    Collinsville may impose a tax on the retail sale of food  and
HB0235 Enrolled            -106-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    beverages  that have been prepared for immediate consumption.
 2    The tax shall not exceed the rate of 1% of the selling  price
 3    of  such  food and beverages.  A tax imposed pursuant to this
 4    Section shall be in addition to any other taxes imposed  with
 5    respect to such food and beverages.
 6        (b)  The  purchaser  of  such food and beverages shall be
 7    liable for the payment of a  tax  imposed  pursuant  to  this
 8    Section.   However,  the corporate authorities of the City of

11    collect the tax and pay over  the  proceeds  of  the  tax  as

20    however,  the  corporate  authorities  determine  that   only
21    persons engaged in such retail sales within a particular area
22    within  the  City  of  Collinsville  will  benefit  from such
23    support,  construction,   maintenance   or   financing,   the
24    corporate  authorities shall by ordinance establish that area
25    as a special purpose district and shall impose the  tax  only
26    within  the district.  In such case the corporate authorities
27    of the City of Collinsville shall be the  governing  body  of

29    pursuant to this Section and expend revenues from the tax for

31        (d)  For  purposes  of   this   Section,   the   support,
32    construction,  maintenance  or financing of a facility of the
33    Authority may include the establishment of reserve funds  and
34    the  expenditure  of  funds  pursuant to an intergovernmental

31        Section 80-20. Borrowing; revenue bonds. Sec.  1-10.  The
32    Authority shall have continuing power to borrow money for the
33    purpose  of  carrying  out  and  performing  its  duties  and

 1    exercising its powers under this Article Act.
 2        For  the  purpose  of  evidencing  the  obligation of the
 3    Authority to repay  any  money  borrowed  as  aforesaid,  the
 4    Authority may, pursuant to an ordinance adopted by the Board,
 5    from  time  to time issue and dispose of its interest bearing
 6    revenue bonds, and may also  from  time  to  time  issue  and
 7    dispose  of  its interest bearing revenue bonds to refund any
 8    bonds at maturity or pursuant to redemption provisions or  at
 9    any  time  before  maturity  with  the consent of the holders
10    thereof. All such bonds shall  be  payable  solely  from  the
11    revenues or income to be derived from the fairs, expositions,
12    exhibitions,   rentals   and   leases  and  other  authorized
13    activities operated by it, and from funds, if  any,  received
14    and  to  be  received by the Authority from any other source.
15    Such bonds may bear such date or dates, may  mature  at  such
16    time  or  times  not exceeding 40 years from their respective
17    dates, may bear interest at such rate or rates, not exceeding

24    face  thereof, may be executed in such manner and may contain
25    such terms and covenants, all as  may  be  provided  in  said
26    ordinance. In case any officer whose signature appears on any
27    bond  ceases (after attaching his signature) to hold office,;
28    his signature shall nevertheless be valid and  effective  for
29    all purposes. The holder or holders of any bonds, or interest
30    coupons  appertaining  thereto  issued  by  the Authority may
31    bring mandamus, injunction, or other  civil  actions  or  and
32    proceedings  to  compel the performance and observance by the
33    Authority or any of its officers, agents or employees  of  or
34    any  contract  or  covenant  made  by  the Authority with the
HB0235 Enrolled            -127-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    holders of such bonds or interest coupons, and to compel  the
 2    Authority  and  any  of  its officers, agents or employees to
 3    perform any duties required to be performed for  the  benefit
 4    of  the  holders of any such bonds or interest coupons by the
 5    provisions of the ordinance authorizing their  issuance,  and
 6    to  enjoin  the  Authority and any of its officers, agents or
 7    employees from taking any action in conflict  with  any  such
 8    contract or covenant.
 9        Notwithstanding  the form and tenor of any such bonds and
10    in the absence of any express recital  on  the  face  thereof
11    that  it is nonnegotiable, all such bonds shall be negotiable
12    instruments under the Uniform Commercial Code of the State of
13    Illinois.
14        The bonds shall be sold by the corporate  authorities  of
15    the  Authority  in  such manner as said corporate authorities
16    shall determine, except that if issued to  bear  interest  at
17    the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as
18    amended  at the time of the making of the contract, the bonds
19    shall be sold for not less than par and accrued interest  and
20    except  that the selling price of bonds bearing interest at a
21    rate of less than the maximum rate  authorized  by  the  Bond
22    Authorization  Act,  as  amended at the time of the making of
23    the contract, shall be such that the  interest  cost  to  the
24    Authority  of the money received from the sale of bonds shall
25    not  exceed  the  maximum  rate  authorized   by   the   Bond
26    Authorization  Act,  as  amended at the time of the making of
27    the contract, computed to absolute maturity of said bonds  or
28    certificates according to standard tables of bond values.
29        From  and  after  the  issuance  of  any  bonds as herein
30    provided it shall be the duty of the corporate authorities of
31    the Authority to fix and establish rates, charges, rents, and
32    fees  for  the  use  of  facilities  acquired,   constructed,
33    reconstructed,  extended or improved with the proceeds of the
34    sale of said  bonds  sufficient  at  all  times,  with  other

 5    due, and all sinking fund requirements and other requirements
 6    provided  by  the  ordinance  authorizing the issuance of the
 7    bonds or as provided  by  any  trust  agreement  executed  to
 8    secure payment thereof.
 9        To secure the payment of any or all of such bonds and for
10    the  purpose  of setting forth the covenants and undertakings

13    revenue income to be derived from  the  fairs,  recreational,
14    theatrical,    cultural,   expositions,   sport   activities,
15    exhibitions,  office  rentals,  and  air  space  leases   and
16    rentals, and other revenue, if any, the Authority may execute
17    and deliver a trust agreement or agreements; provided that no
18    lien  upon  any  physical  property of the Authority shall be
19    created thereby.
20        A remedy for any breach or default of the  terms  of  any
21    such  trust  agreement  by  the Authority may be by mandamus,
22    injunction, or other civil actions or and proceedings in  any
23    court  of  competent  jurisdiction  to compel performance and
24    compliance therewith, but the trust agreement  may  prescribe
25    by whom or on whose behalf such action may be instituted.
26        Before  any  such  bonds  (excepting refunding bonds) are
27    sold the entire authorized issue, or any part thereof,  shall
28    be  offered  for sale as a unit after advertising for bids at
29    least 3 times in a daily  newspaper  of  general  circulation
30    published  in  the metropolitan area, the last publication to

 2    best bidder or bidders therefor. The Authority shall have the
 3    right  to  reject  all  bids  and readvertise for bids in the
 4    manner provided for in the initial advertisement. However, if
 5    no bids are received such bonds may be sold at not less  than
 6    par  value, without further advertising, within 60 days after
 7    the  bids  are  required  to  be  filed   pursuant   to   any
 8    advertisement.

10    issued under this Section either before,  on,  or  after  the
11    effective  date  of  Public  Act  86-4 this amendatory Act of
12    1989, it is and always has been the intention of the  General
13    Assembly  (i)  that the Omnibus Bond Acts are and always have

17    have  been  more  restrictive  than those Acts, (ii) that the

19    supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts, and
20    (iii)  that  instruments issued under this Section within the

 7    bonds  at maturity or pursuant to redemption provisions or at

 9    thereof.   All  such  bonds  shall be payable solely from the
10    revenues or income to be derived from the fairs, expositions,

23    the  ordinance.   In case any officer whose signature appears
24    on any bond ceases (after attaching his  signature)  to  hold
25    office,;  his  signature  shall  nevertheless  be  valid  and
26    effective  for  all  purposes.   The holder or holders of any
27    bonds, or interest coupons appertaining  thereto,  issued  by

29    actions or and proceedings  to  compel  the  performance  and
30    observance by the Authority or any of its officers, agents or
31    employees  of  or  any  contract  or  covenant  made  by  the
32    Authority with the holders of such bonds or interest coupons,
33    and  to  compel the Authority and any of its officers, agents
34    or employees to perform any duties required to  be  performed
HB0235 Enrolled            -148-               LRB9000879DJcd

 4    officers,  agents  or  employees  from  taking  any action in
 5    conflict with any such contract or covenant.
 6        Notwithstanding the form and tenor of any such bonds  and
 7    in  the  absence  of  any express recital on the face thereof
 8    that it is non-negotiable, all such bonds shall be negotiable
 9    instruments under the Uniform Commercial Code of the State of
10    Illinois.
11        From and after  the  issuance  of  any  bonds  as  herein
12    provided it shall be the duty of the corporate authorities of
13    the Authority to fix and establish rates, charges, rents, and
14    fees   for  the  use  of  facilities  acquired,  constructed,
15    reconstructed, extended or improved with the proceeds of  the
16    sale  of  said  bonds  sufficient  at  all  times, with other

29    revenue  income  to  be derived from the fairs, recreational,
30    theatrical  or  cultural   expositions,   sport   activities,
31    exhibitions,   office  rentals,  and  air  space  leases  and
32    rentals, and other revenue, if any, the Authority may execute
33    and deliver a trust agreement or agreements; provided that no

 1    created thereby.
 2        A  remedy  for  any breach or default of the terms of any
 3    such trust agreement by the Authority  may  be  by  mandamus,
 4    injunction,  or other civil actions or and proceedings in any
 5    court of competent jurisdiction  to  compel  performance  and
 6    compliance  therewith,  but the trust agreement may prescribe
 7    by whom or on whose behalf such action may be instituted.
 8        Before any such bonds  (excepting  refunding  bonds)  are
 9    sold, the entire authorized issue, or any part thereof, shall
10    be  offered  for sale as a unit after advertising for bids at
11    least 3 times in a daily  newspaper  of  general  circulation
12    published  in  the metropolitan area, the last publication to

14    Copies   of  such  advertisement  may  be  published  in  any
15    newspaper or financial publication in the United States.  All
16    bids shall  be  sealed,  filed  and  opened  as  provided  by
17    ordinance  and  the bonds shall be awarded to the highest and
18    best bidder or bidders therefor.  The  Authority  shall  have
19    the  right to reject all bids and readvertise for bids in the
20    manner provided for in the initial  advertisement.   However,
21    if  no  bids  are received such bonds may be sold at not less
22    than par value, without further advertising, within  60  days
23    after  the  bids  are  required  to  be filed pursuant to any
24    advertisement.

 2    bond  ceases  (after attaching his signature) to hold office,
 3    his signature shall nevertheless be valid and  effective  for
 4    all purposes. The holder or holders of any bonds, or interest
 5    coupons  appertaining  thereto  issued  by  the Authority may
 6    bring suits at law or proceedings in  equity  to  compel  the
 7    performance  and  observance  by  the Authority or any of its
 8    officers, agents or employees of or any contract or  covenant
 9    made  by  the  Authority  with  the  holders of such bonds or
10    interest coupons, and to compel the Authority and any of  its

17        Notwithstanding the form and tenor of any such bonds  and
18    in  the  absence  of  any express recital on the face thereof
19    that it is non-negotiable, all such bonds shall be negotiable
20    instruments under the Uniform Commercial Code.
21        From and after  the  issuance  of  any  bonds  as  herein
22    provided it shall be the duty of the corporate authorities of

 2    the purpose of setting forth the covenants  and  undertakings
 3    of  the Authority in connection with the issuance thereof and

 5    revenue  income  to  be derived from the fairs, recreational,

 7    exhibitions,  office  rentals,  and  air  space  leases   and
 8    rentals,  and  from  other revenue, if any, the Authority may
 9    execute and deliver a trust agreement or agreements; provided
10    that no lien upon any  physical  property  of  the  Authority
11    shall be created thereby.
12        A  remedy  for  any breach or default of the terms of any
13    such trust agreement by the  Authority  may  be  by  mandamus
14    proceedings  in  the circuit court of Jasper County to compel
15    performance and compliance therewith, but the trust agreement
16    may prescribe by whom or on whose behalf such action  may  be
17    instituted.
18        Before  any  such  bonds  (excepting refunding bonds) are
19    sold the entire authorized issue, or any part thereof,  shall
20    be  offered  for sale as a unit after advertising for bids at
21    least  3  three  times  in  a  daily  newspaper  of   general
22    circulation  published  in  the  metropolitan  area, the last
23    publication to be at  least  10  ten  days  before  bids  are
24    required  to  be  filed.  Copies of such advertisement may be
25    published in any newspaper or financial  publication  in  the
26    United  States. All bids shall be sealed, filed and opened as
27    provided by ordinance and the bonds shall be awarded  to  the
28    highest  and  best  bidder or bidders therefor. The Authority
29    shall have the right to reject all bids and  readvertise  for
30    bids in the manner provided for in the initial advertisement.
31    However,  if  no  bids are received such bonds may be sold at
32    not less than par value, without further advertising,  within
33    60  days  after the bids are required to be filed pursuant to
34    any advertisement.

 1    bonds  at maturity or pursuant to redemption provisions or at
 2    any time before maturity with  the  consent  of  the  holders
 3    thereof.   All  such  bonds  shall be payable solely from the
 4    revenues or income to be derived from the fairs, expositions,
 5    exhibitions,  rentals  and  leases   and   other   authorized

19    ordinance.  In case any officer whose  signature  appears  on
20    any  bond  ceases  (after  attaching  his  signature) to hold
21    office,;  his  signature  shall  nevertheless  be  valid  and
22    effective for all purposes.  The holder  or  holders  of  any
23    bonds, or interest coupons appertaining thereto issued by the
24    Authority  may  bring  mandamus,  injunction,  or other civil
25    actions or and proceedings  to  compel  the  performance  and
26    observance by the Authority or any of its officers, agents or

33    issuance,  and  to  enjoin  the  Authority  and  any  of  its
34    officers,  agents  or  employees  from  taking  any action in

 1    conflict with any action in conflict with any  such  contract
 2    or covenant.
 3        Notwithstanding  the form and tenor of any such bonds and
 4    in the absence of any express recital  on  the  face  thereof
 5    that  it is nonnegotiable, all such bonds shall be negotiable
 6    instruments under the Uniform Commercial Code of the State of
 7    Illinois.
 8        The bonds shall be sold by the corporate  authorities  of
 9    the  Authority  in  such manner as said corporate authorities
10    shall determine, except that if issued to  bear  interest  at
11    the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as
12    amended  at the time of the making of the contract, the bonds
13    shall be sold for not less than par and accrued interest  and
14    except  that the selling price of bonds bearing interest at a
15    rate of less than the maximum rate  authorized  by  the  Bond
16    Authorization  Act,  as  amended at the time of the making of
17    the contract, shall be such that the  interest  cost  to  the
18    Authority  of the money received from the sale of bonds shall
19    not  exceed  the  maximum  rate  authorized   by   the   Bond
20    Authorization  Act,  as  amended at the time of the making of
21    the contract, computed to absolute maturity of said bonds  or
22    certificates according to standard tables of bond values.
23        From  and  after  the  issuance  of  any  bonds as herein
24    provided it shall be the duty of the corporate authorities of
25    the Authority to fix and establish rates, charges, rents, and
26    fees  for  the  use  of  facilities  acquired,   constructed,
27    reconstructed,  extended or improved with the proceeds of the
28    sale of said  bonds  sufficient  at  all  times,  with  other
29    revenues of the Authority to pay:
30        (a)  the  cost  of maintaining, repairing, regulating and
31    operating the said facilities; and
32        (b)  the bonds and interest thereon as they shall  become
33    due, and all sinking fund requirements and other requirements
34    provided  by  the  ordinance  authorizing the issuance of the

 7    revenue income to be derived from  the  fairs,  recreational,
 8    theatrical,    cultural,   expositions,   sport   activities,
 9    exhibitions,  office  rentals,  and  air  space  leases   and
10    rentals, and other revenue, if any, the Authority may execute
11    and deliver a trust agreement or agreements; provided that no
12    lien  upon  any  physical  property of the Authority shall be
13    created thereby.
14        A remedy for any breach or default of the  terms  of  any
15    such  trust  agreement  by  the Authority may be by mandamus,
16    injunction, or other civil actions or and proceedings in  any
17    court  of  competent  jurisdiction  to compel performance and
18    compliance therewith, but the trust agreement  may  prescribe
19    by whom or on whose behalf such action may be instituted.
20        Before  any  such  bonds  (excepting refunding bonds) are
21    sold the entire authorized issue, or any part thereof,  shall
22    be  offered  for sale as a unit after advertising for bids at
23    least 3 times in a daily  newspaper  of  general  circulation
24    published  in  the metropolitan area, the last publication to
25    be at least 10 days before bids are  required  to  be  filed.
26    Copies   of  such  advertisement  may  be  published  in  any
27    newspaper or financial publication in the United States.  All
28    bids  shall  be  sealed,  filed  and  opened  as  provided by
29    ordinance and the bonds shall be awarded to the  highest  and
30    best bidder or bidders therefor. The Authority shall have the
31    right  to  reject  all  bids  and readvertise for bids in the
32    manner provided for in the initial advertisement. However, if
33    no bids are received such bonds may be sold at not less  than
34    par  value, without further advertising, within 60 days after
HB0235 Enrolled            -183-               LRB9000879DJcd

 4    issued under this Section either before,  on,  or  after  the
 5    effective  date  of  this  amendatory  Act of 1989, it is and
 6    always has been the intention of  the  General  Assembly  (i)
 7    that   the  Omnibus  Bond  Acts  are  and  always  have  been
 8    supplementary  grants  of  power  to  issue  instruments   in
 9    accordance  with  the  Omnibus  Bond  Acts, regardless of any
10    provision of this Article Act that may appear  to  be  or  to
11    have  been  more  restrictive  than those Acts, (ii) that the
12    provisions of this  Section  are  not  a  limitation  on  the
13    supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts, and
14    (iii)  that  instruments issued under this Section within the
15    supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts  are
16    not invalid because of any provision of this Article Act that
17    may  appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those
18    Acts.

 2    that it is non-negotiable, all such bonds shall be negotiable

21    values.
22        From  and  after  the  issuance  of  any  bonds as herein
23    provided it shall be the duty of the corporate authorities of
24    the Authority to fix and establish rates, charges, rents  and
25    fees   for  the  use  of  facilities  acquired,  constructed,

 8    for admissions to its events, or from other revenue, if  any,
 9    the  Authority  may  execute and deliver a trust agreement or
10    agreements; provided that no lien upon any physical  property
11    of the Authority shall be created thereby.
12        A  remedy  for  any breach or default of the terms of any
13    such trust agreement by the Authority may be had by  mandamus
14    proceedings  in any Court of competent jurisdiction to compel
15    performance and compliance therewith, but the trust agreement
16    may prescribe by whom or on whose behalf such action  may  be
17    instituted.
18        Before any such revenue bonds (excepting refunding bonds)
19    are  sold  the  entire authorized issue, or any part thereof,
20    shall be offered for sale as a  unit  after  advertising  for
21    bids  at  least  3  times  in  a  daily  newspaper of general
22    circulation published in  the  metropolitan  area,  the  last
23    publication  to  be at least 10 days before bids are required
24    to be filed.  Copies of such advertisement may  be  published
25    in  any  newspaper  or  financial  publication  in the United
26    States.  All bids  shall  be  sealed,  filed  and  opened  as
27    provided  by  ordinance and the bonds shall be awarded to the
28    highest and best bidder or bidders therefor.   The  Authority
29    shall  have  the right to reject all bids and readvertise for
30    bids in the manner provided for in the initial advertisement.
31    However, if no bids are received such bonds may  be  sold  at
32    not  less than par value, without further advertising, within
33    60 days after the bids are required to be filed  pursuant  to
34    any advertisement.

19    the  bidder,  the bidder's experience, adequacy of equipment,
20    and ability to complete performance within the time set,  and
21    other  factors  besides  financial  responsibility, but in no
22    case shall any such contracts be awarded to  any  other  than

 3    which would be payable under said Act, if applicable, and the
 4    lowest in amount of said adjusted bids and bids for sales the
 5    gross receipts of which are taxable under said Act  shall  be
 6    considered the lowest bid; provided, that, if said lowest bid
 7    relates  to  a  sale not taxable under said Act, any contract
 8    entered into thereon shall be in the amount of  the  original
 9    bid not adjusted as aforesaid.
10        Contracts   shall  not  be  split  into  parts  involving
11    expenditures of less than $2500 for the purposes of  avoiding
12    the  provisions of this Section, and all such split contracts
13    shall be void.  If any  collusion  occurs  among  bidders  or
14    prospective  bidders  in restraint of freedom of competition,
15    by agreement to bid a fixed amount or to refrain from bidding
16    or otherwise, the bids of such bidders shall be  void.   Each
17    bidder shall accompany his bid with a sworn statement that he
18    has not been a party to any such agreement.
19        Members  of  the  Board,  officers  and  employees of the
20    Authority, and their relatives within the  fourth  degree  of

11    materials, supplies, or equipment.
12        (e)  The  Board  shall  have the right to reject all bids
13    and  to  readvertise  for  bids.   If  no   responsible   and
14    satisfactory  bid  within  the  terms of the advertisement is
15    received,  the  Board  may   award   the   contract   without
16    competitive  bidding if the contract is not less advantageous
17    to the Authority than any valid bid received in  response  to

12    issuance  and sale. The Authority shall have continuing power
13    to  borrow  money  for  the  purpose  of  carrying  out   and
14    performing  its  duties  and exercising its powers under this

16        For the purpose  of  evidencing  the  obligation  of  the

 2    without premium as is stated on  the  face  thereof  and  may

 6    hold office, his or her signature shall nevertheless be valid
 7    and effective for all purposes.  The holder or holders of any
 8    bonds, or interest coupons appertaining  thereto,  issued  by
 9    the  Authority may bring mandamus, injunction, or other civil
10    actions or and proceedings  to  compel  the  performance  and
11    observance by the Authority or any of its officers, agents or
12    employees  of  or  any  contract  or  covenant  made  by  the
13    Authority with the holders of such bonds or interest coupons,
14    and  to  compel the Authority and any of its officers, agents
15    or  employees  or  any  contract  or  covenant  made  by  the
16    Authority with the holders of such bonds or interest  coupons
17    and  to  compel the Authority and any of its officers, agents
18    or employees to perform any duties required to  be  performed
19    for  the benefit of the holders of any such bonds or interest
20    coupons by the provisions of the ordinance authorizing  their
21    issuance,  and  to  enjoin  the  Authority  and  any  of  its
22    officers,  agents  or  employees  from  taking  any action in
23    conflict with any such contract or covenant.
24        Notwithstanding the form and tenor of any such bonds  and
25    in  the  absence  of  any express recital on the face thereof
26    that it is nonnegotiable, all such bonds shall be  negotiable
27    instruments  under  the  Uniform  Commercial  Code, as now or
28    hereafter amended.
29        From and after  the  issuance  of  any  bonds  as  herein
30    provided it shall be the duty of the corporate authorities of

33    reconstructed, extended or improved with the proceeds of  the
34    sale  of  said  bonds  sufficient  at  all  times, with other

 9        To secure the payment of any or all of such bonds and for
10    the purpose of setting forth the covenants  and  undertakings
11    of  the Authority in connection with the issuance thereof and
12    the issuance  of  any  additional  bonds  payable  from  such
13    revenue   to   be   derived  from  the  fairs,  recreational,
14    theatrical  or  cultural   expositions,   sport   activities,
15    exhibitions,   office  rentals,  and  air  space  leases  and
16    rentals, and other revenue, if any, the Authority may execute
17    and deliver a trust agreement or agreements; provided that no
18    lien upon any physical property of  the  Authority  shall  be
19    created thereby.
20        A  remedy  for  any breach or default of the terms of any
21    such trust agreement by the Authority  may  be  by  mandamus,
22    injunction,  or other civil actions or and proceedings in any
23    court of competent jurisdiction  to  compel  performance  and
24    compliance  therewith,  but the trust agreement may prescribe
25    by whom or on whose behalf such action may be instituted.
26        The Authority shall have the right to sell its  bonds  by

HB0235 Enrolled            -233-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    bonds at maturity or pursuant to redemption provisions or  at
 2    any  time  before  maturity  with  the consent of the holders
 3    thereof.  All such bonds shall be  payable  solely  from  the
 4    revenues or income to be derived from the fairs, expositions,

 6    activities operated by it, and from funds, if  any,  received
 7    and  to  be  received by the Authority from any other source.
 8    Such bonds may bear such date or dates, may  mature  at  such
 9    time  or  times  not exceeding 40 years from their respective
10    dates, may bear interest at such rate or rates, not exceeding

19    ordinance.   In  case  any officer whose signature appears on
20    any bond ceases  (after  attaching  his  signature)  to  hold
21    office,   his  signature  shall  nevertheless  be  valid  and
22    effective for all purposes.  The holder  or  holders  of  any
23    bonds,  or  interest  coupons  appertaining thereto issued by
24    the Authority may bring suits at law or proceedings in equity
25    to compel the performance and observance by the Authority  or
26    any  of  its officers, agents or employees of or any contract
27    or covenant made by the Authority with the  holders  of  such
28    bonds  or  interest  coupons, and to compel the Authority and
29    any of its officers,  agents  or  employees  to  perform  any
30    duties  required  to  be  performed  for  the  benefit of the
31    holders  of  any  such  bonds  or  interest  coupons  by  the
32    provisions of the ordinance authorizing their  issuance,  and
33    to  enjoin  the  Authority and any of its officers, agents or
34    employees from taking any action in conflict  with  any  such
HB0235 Enrolled            -234-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    contract or covenant.
 2        Notwithstanding  the form and tenor of any such bonds and
 3    in the absence of any express recital  on  the  face  thereof
 4    that it is non-negotiable, all such bonds shall be negotiable
 5    instruments  under  the  Uniform  Commercial  Code, as now or
 6    hereafter amended.
 7        From and after  the  issuance  of  any  bonds  as  herein
 8    provided it shall be the duty of the corporate authorities of
 9    the  Authority to fix and establish rates, charges, rents and
10    fees  for  the  use  of  facilities  acquired,   constructed,
11    reconstructed,  extended or improved with the proceeds of the
12    sale of said  bonds  sufficient  at  all  times,  with  other
13    revenues of the Authority to pay:
14        (a)  the  cost  of maintaining, repairing, regulating and
15    operating the said facilities; and
16        (b)  the bonds and interest thereon as they shall  become
17    due, and all sinking fund requirements and other requirements
18    provided  by  the  ordinance  authorizing the issuance of the
19    bonds or as provided  by  any  trust  agreement  executed  to
20    secure payment thereof.
21        To  secure  the  payment of any or all such bonds and for
22    the purpose of setting forth the covenants  and  undertakings
23    of  the Authority in connection with the issuance thereof and
24    the issuance  of  any  additional  bonds  payable  from  such
25    revenue  income  to  be derived from the fairs, recreational,
26    theatrical,   cultural,   expositions,   sports   activities,
27    exhibitions, office rentals and air space leases and rentals,
28    and other revenue, if any,  the  Authority  may  execute  and
29    deliver  a  trust  agreement  or agreements; provided that no
30    lien upon any physical property of  the  Authority  shall  be
31    created thereby.
32        A  remedy  for  any breach or default of the terms of any
33    such trust agreement by the  Authority  may  be  by  mandamus
34    proceedings  in any court of competent jurisdiction to compel
HB0235 Enrolled            -235-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    performance and compliance therewith, but the trust agreement
 2    may prescribe by whom or on whose behalf such action  may  be
 3    instituted.
 4        Before  any  such  bonds  (excepting refunding bonds) are
 5    sold, the entire authorized issue, or any part thereof, shall
 6    be offered for sale as a unit after advertising for  bids  at
 7    least  3  times  in  a daily newspaper of general circulation
 8    published in the metropolitan area, the last  publication  to
 9    be  at  least  10  days before bids are required to be filed.
10    Copies  of  such  advertisement  may  be  published  in   any
11    newspaper or financial publication in the United States.  All
12    bids  shall  be  sealed,  filed  and  opened  as  provided by
13    ordinance and the bonds shall be awarded to the  highest  and
14    best  bidder  or  bidders therefor.  The Authority shall have
15    the right to reject all bids and readvertise for bids in  the
16    manner  provided  for in the initial advertisement.  However,
17    if no bids are received, such bonds may be sold at  not  less
18    than  par  value, without further advertising, within 60 days
19    after the bids are required  to  be  filed  pursuant  to  any
20    advertisement.

 3    Authority shall have continuing power to borrow money for the
 4    purpose  of  carrying  out  and  performing  its  duties  and

12    bonds at maturity or pursuant to redemption provisions or  at
13    any  time  before  maturity  with  the consent of the holders
14    thereof.  All such bonds shall be  payable  solely  from  the
15    revenues or income to be derived from the fairs, expositions,

20    time  or  times  not exceeding 40 years from their respective
21    dates, may bear interest at such rate or rates, not exceeding

29    such terms and covenants, all as  may  be  provided  in  said
30    ordinance.   In  case  any officer whose signature appears on
31    any bond ceases  (after  attaching  his  signature)  to  hold
32    office,;  his  signature  shall  nevertheless  be  valid  and
33    effective  for  all  purposes.   The holder or holders of any
34    bonds, or interest coupons appertaining thereto issued by the

 1    Authority may bring  mandamus,  injunction,  or  other  civil
 2    actions  or  and  proceedings  to  compel the performance and
 3    observance by the Authority or any of its officers, agents or

 9    coupons  by the provisions of the ordinance authorizing their
10    issuance,  and  to  enjoin  the  Authority  and  any  of  its
11    officers, agents or  employees  from  taking  any  action  in
12    conflict  with  any action in conflict with any such contract
13    or covenant.
14        Notwithstanding the form and tenor of any such bonds  and
15    in  the  absence  of  any express recital on the face thereof
16    that it is nonnegotiable, all such bonds shall be  negotiable
17    instruments under the Uniform Commercial Code of the State of
18    Illinois.
19        The  bonds  shall be sold by the corporate authorities of
20    the Authority in such manner as  said  corporate  authorities
21    shall  determine,  except  that if issued to bear interest at
22    the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as
23    amended at the time of the making of the contract, the  bonds
24    shall  be sold for not less than par and accrued interest and
25    except that the selling price of bonds bearing interest at  a
26    rate  of  less  than  the maximum rate authorized by the Bond
27    Authorization Act, as amended at the time of  the  making  of
28    the  contract,  shall  be  such that the interest cost to the
29    Authority of the money received from the sale of bonds  shall
30    not   exceed   the   maximum  rate  authorized  by  the  Bond
31    Authorization Act, as amended at the time of  the  making  of

22    and deliver a trust agreement or agreements; provided that no
23    lien upon any physical property of  the  Authority  shall  be
24    created thereby.
25        A  remedy  for  any breach or default of the terms of any
26    such trust agreement by the Authority  may  be  by  mandamus,
27    injunction,  or other civil actions or and proceedings in any
28    court of competent jurisdiction  to  compel  performance  and
29    compliance  therewith,  but the trust agreement may prescribe
30    by whom or on whose behalf such action may be instituted.
31        Before any such bonds  (excepting  refunding  bonds)  are
32    sold  the entire authorized issue, or any part thereof, shall
33    be offered for sale as a unit after advertising for  bids  at
34    least  3  times  in  a daily newspaper of general circulation

 8    right to reject all bids and  readvertise  for  bids  in  the
 9    manner provided for in the initial advertisement. However, if
10    no  bids are received such bonds may be sold at not less than
11    par value, without further advertising, within 60 days  after
12    the   bids   are   required  to  be  filed  pursuant  to  any
13    advertisement.

15    issued  under  this  Section  either before, on, or after the
16    effective date of this amendatory Act  of  1989,  it  is  and

25    years so long as the total limit of $300,000 is not exceeded.
26    Thereafter, if the proposition for the levy of such a tax has

 8    pursuant  to  the  provisions  of  this  Section and said tax
 9    levied shall be abated accordingly on an annual basis.

12        Section 205-35. Sec. 9. Borrowing money;  revenue  bonds;
13    nature  of  indebtedness; investment in bonds.  The Authority
14    shall have continuing power to borrow money for  the  purpose
15    of  carrying out and performing its duties and exercising its
16    powers under this Article Act.
17        For the purpose  of  evidencing  the  obligation  of  the
18    Authority  to  repay  any  money  borrowed  as aforesaid, the
19    Authority may, pursuant to ordinance adopted  by  the  Board,
20    from  time  to time issue and dispose of its interest bearing
21    revenue bonds, and may also  from  time  to  time  issue  and
22    dispose  of  its interest bearing revenue bonds to refund any
23    bonds at maturity or pursuant to redemption provisions or  at
24    any  time  before  maturity  with  the consent of the holders
25    thereof. All such bonds shall  be  payable  solely  from  the
26    revenues or income to be derived from the fairs, expositions,
27    exhibitions,   rentals   and   leases  and  other  authorized
28    activities operated by it, and from funds, if  any,  received
29    and  to  be  received by the Authority from any other source.
30    Such bonds may bear such date or dates, may  mature  at  such
31    time or times not exceeding forty years from their respective
32    dates, may bear interest at such rate or rates, not exceeding
33    the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as
HB0235 Enrolled            -292-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    amended  at  the  time of the making of the contract, payable
 2    semi-annually,  may  be  in  such  form,   may   carry   such
 3    registration  privileges, may be executed in such manner, may
 4    be payable at such place or places, may be  made  subject  to
 5    redemption  in  such  manner  and  upon  such  terms, with or
 6    without premium as is stated on  the  face  thereof,  may  be
 7    executed  in  such  manner  and  may  contain  such terms and
 8    covenants, all as may be provided in said ordinance. In  case
 9    any officer whose signature appears on any bond ceases (after
10    attaching  his signature) to hold office, his signature shall
11    nevertheless be valid and effective  for  all  purposes.  The
12    holder   or   holders  of  any  bonds,  or  interest  coupons
13    appertaining  thereto  issued  by  the  Authority  may  bring
14    mandamus,  injunction,  or  other  civil  actions  action  or
15    proceedings to compel the performance and observance  by  the
16    Authority  or any of its officers, agents or employees of any
17    contract or covenant made by the Authority with  the  holders
18    of  such  bonds  or  interest  coupons,  and  to  compel  the
19    Authority  and  any  of  its officers, agents or employees to
20    perform any duties required to be performed for  the  benefit
21    of  the  holders of any such bonds or interest coupons by the
22    provisions of the ordinance authorizing their  issuance,  and
23    to  enjoin  the  Authority and any of its officers, agents or
24    employees from taking any action in conflict  with  any  such
25    contract or covenant.
26        Notwithstanding  the form and tenor of any such bonds and
27    in the absence of any express recital  on  the  face  thereof
28    that it is non-negotiable, all such bonds shall be negotiable
29    instruments under the Uniform Commercial Code.
30        The  bonds  shall be sold by the corporate authorities of
31    the Authority in such manner as  said  corporate  authorities
32    shall determine except that if issued to bear interest at the
33    maximum  rate  authorized  by  the Bond Authorization Act, as
34    amended at the time of the making of the contract, the  bonds
HB0235 Enrolled            -293-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    shall  be sold for not less than par and accrued interest and
 2    except that the selling price of bonds bearing interest at  a
 3    rate  of  less  than  the maximum rate authorized by the Bond
 4    Authorization Act, as amended at the time of  the  making  of
 5    the  contract,  shall  be  such that the interest cost to the
 6    Authority of the money received from the sale of bonds  shall
 7    not   exceed   the   maximum  rate  authorized  by  the  Bond
 8    Authorization Act, as amended at the time of  the  making  of
 9    the  contract, computed to absolute maturity of said bonds or
10    certificates according to standard tables of bond values.
11        From and after  the  issuance  of  any  bonds  as  herein
12    provided it shall be the duty of the corporate authorities of
13    the Authority to fix and establish rates, charges, rents, and
14    fees  for  the  use of its facilities sufficient at all times
15    with other revenues of the Authority to pay:
16        (a)  the cost of maintaining, repairing,  regulating  and
17    operating the said facilities; and
18        (b)  the  bonds and interest thereon as they shall become
19    due, and all sinking fund requirements and other requirements
20    provided by the ordinance authorizing  the  issuance  of  the
21    bonds  or  as  provided  by  any  trust agreement executed to
22    secure payment thereof.
23        To secure the payment of any or all of such bonds and for
24    the purpose of setting forth the covenants  and  undertakings

27    revenue  income  to  be derived from the fairs, recreational,
28    theatrical,   cultural,   expositions,   sport    activities,
29    exhibitions,   office  rentals,  and  air  space  leases  and
30    rentals, and other revenue, if any, the Authority may execute
31    and deliver a trust agreement or agreements; provided that no
32    lien upon any physical property of  the  Authority  shall  be
33    created thereby.
34        A  remedy  for  any breach or default of the terms of any

 3    in any court of competent jurisdiction to compel  performance
 4    and   compliance  therewith,  but  the  trust  agreement  may
 5    prescribe by whom or on  whose  behalf  such  action  may  be
 6    instituted.
 7        Under  no circumstances shall any revenue bonds issued by
 8    the Authority be or become an indebtedness or  obligation  of
 9    the  State  of Illinois or of any other political subdivision
10    of or municipality within the State, nor shall any such  bond
11    or  obligation  be or become an indebtedness of the Authority
12    within  the  purview  of  any  constitutional  limitation  or
13    provision, and it shall be plainly stated on the face of each
14    bond that it does not  constitute  such  an  indebtedness  or
15    obligation  but is payable solely from the revenues or income
16    as aforesaid.

18    determined  by  the  Board of Commissioners, conditioned upon
19    the payment of all labor furnished and materials supplied  in
20    the  prosecution  of the contracted work. If the bidder whose
21    bid has been accepted shall neglect or refuse to  accept  the
22    contract within 5 five (5) days after written notice that the
23    same  has  been awarded to him, or if he accepts but does not

21        Section 240-40.  Security police force.  Sec.  23a.   The
22    Board  of the Authority may establish and maintain a Security
23    Police Force and may define  and  prescribe  all  such  peace
24    officers'  duties  and  compensation.   Every security police
25    officer appointed by the Board to such Security Police Force,
26    as the same shall be from time to time hereafter constituted,
27    shall have and is hereby vested with police  powers,  and  is
28    hereby authorized to act as a conservator of the peace within
29    and upon driveways, sidewalks and property controlled by such
30    Authority,  and  shall have power to make arrests or cause to
31    be arrested, with or without process, any person  who  breaks
32    the  peace,  or  may  be  found  violating  any  of the penal
HB0235 Enrolled            -343-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    ordinances of such Authority, or of the City of  Rockford  or
 2    any criminal law of the State.
 3        An  arrest  may  be  made  by  any such officer without a
 4    warrant when a criminal offense is committed or attempted  in
 5    his  presence  or  when a criminal offense has, in fact, been
 6    committed,  and  the  officer  has  reasonable   ground   for
 7    believing  that  the  person to be arrested has committed it.
 8    Any person so arrested shall, without unnecessary  delay,  be
 9    taken  by such officer before the circuit court of the county
10    having jurisdiction  of  the  offense  committed  or  charged
11    against  such person, and such police officer shall thereupon
12    make and file a complaint in writing under oath, against such
13    defendant, charging the violation by such defendant  of  such
14    statute  or  ordinance,  and such offender shall thereupon be
15    dealt with according to law in the same manner as if  he  had
16    been  arrested  in  the first instance under warrant lawfully
17    issued.  However, no member of any such Security Police Force
18    shall be vested with any police power outside the  limits  of
19    the  metropolitan  area  except pursuant to and in accordance
20    with an intergovernmental cooperation agreement to which  the
21    Authority is a party.
22        In  all actions for the violation of any ordinance of the
23    Authority, the first process shall be a summons or a warrant.
24    A warrant for the arrest of an accused person may issue  upon
25    the  affidavit  of  any  person  that  an  ordinance has been
26    violated, and that person making the complaint has reasonable
27    grounds to believe that the party charged is guilty  thereof.
28    Every  person  arrested  upon  a warrant, without unnecessary
29    delay, shall be taken before the proper officer for trial.
30        The Board  of  the  Authority  may  establish  reasonable
31    eligibility  requirements  for  appointment  to such Security
32    Police Force relating to health, habits and moral  character.
33    However,  no  person  may  be appointed hereunder unless that
34    person is at least  21  years  of  age.   No  person  may  be
HB0235 Enrolled            -344-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    appointed  to  or  be  retained  in the Security Police Force
 2    unless that person is of good character and  not  a  habitual
 3    drunkard,  gambler  or  a  person  convicted of a felony or a
 4    crime involving moral turpitude.  All  such  Security  Police
 5    Force  personnel  authorized to carry weapons shall receive a
 6    course of training in the legal and  practical  use  of  such
 7    weapons  as  is  required of a police officer under the Peace
 8    Officer Firearm Training Act "An Act in relation to  firearms
 9    training  for  peace  officers", approved August 29, 1975, as
10    amended, and all such Security Police Force  personnel  shall
11    also have received the training and certification required by
12    the  Illinois  "Illinois  Police  Training  Act"  as  now  or
13    hereafter amended.

16        Section   240-45.  Ordinances   and   rules;   fines  and
17    penalties. Sec. 24.  The Board shall have power to  pass  all
18    ordinances  and  make  all  rules  and  regulations proper or
19    necessary to carry into effect  the  powers  granted  to  the
20    Authority,  with  such  fines  or  penalties as may be deemed
21    proper.  No fine or penalty, however, shall exceed  $500  and
22    no imprisonment authorized by this Section for failure to pay
23    any  fine,  penalty  or  cost  shall  exceed 6 months for one
24    offense.   All  fines  and  penalties  shall  be  imposed  by
25    ordinance, which shall be published in a newspaper of general
26    circulation published in the area embraced by the  Authority.
27    No  such ordinance shall take effect until ten days after its
28    publication.
29        The  Board  is  authorized  to  recover  the  fines   and
30    penalties  imposed for violation of its ordinances by suit in
31    the name  of  the  Authority  before  the  circuit  court  of
32    Winnebago  County.   The procedure in such suits shall be the
33    same as that provided by law for like suits for the violation
HB0235 Enrolled            -345-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    of  ordinances  in  cities  organized  under   the   Illinois
 2    Municipal   Code,   and   offenders  may  be  imprisoned  for
 3    nonpayment of fines and costs in the same manner as  in  such
 4    cities.   All  fines  when  collected  shall be paid into the
 5    treasury of the Authority.

 8        Section 240-50.  Contracts. Sec. 25.  All  contracts  for
 9    sale  of  property  of the value of more than $2500 or for an
10    concession in or lease of property including air  rights,  of
11    the  Authority  for  a  term  of  more than one year shall be
12    awarded to the highest responsible bidder, after  advertising
13    for  bids.  All  construction  contracts  and  contracts  for
14    supplies, materials, equipment and services, when the expense
15    thereof  will  exceed  $2500,  shall  be  let  to  the lowest
16    responsible bidder, after advertising for bids, excepting (1)
17    when repair parts, accessories,  equipment  or  services  are
18    required  for  equipment  or services previously furnished or
19    contracted for; (2) when the nature of the services  required
20    is  such that competitive bidding is not in the best interest
21    of the public, including, without limiting the generality  of
22    the  foregoing,  the  services  of  accountants,  architects,
23    attorneys,    engineers,   physicians,   superintendents   of
24    construction, and others possessing a high degree  of  skill;
25    and  (3)  when  services  such  as water, light, heat, power,
26    telephone or telegraph are required.
27        All contracts involving less than $2500 shall be  let  by
28    competitive bidding to the lowest responsible bidder whenever
29    possible,  and  in any event in a manner calculated to ensure
30    insure the best interests of the public.
31        In determining the  responsibility  of  any  bidder,  the
32    Board  may  take  in account the past record of dealings with
33    the bidder, experience, adequacy  of  equipment,  ability  to
HB0235 Enrolled            -346-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    complete  performance  within the time set, and other factors
 2    besides financial responsibility, but in no  case  shall  any
 3    such  contracts  be  awarded  to  any  other than the highest
 4    bidder (in case of sale, concession or lease) or  the  lowest
 5    bidder (in case of purchase or expenditure) unless authorized
 6    or approved by the affirmative vote of at least  6 six of the
 7    members  of  the Board present at a meeting at which a quorum
 8    is present, and  unless  such  action  is  accompanied  by  a
 9    statement  in  writing  setting  forth  the  reasons  for not
10    awarding the contract to the highest or lowest bidder, as the
11    case may be, which statement shall be kept  on  file  in  the
12    principal   office  of  the  Authority  and  open  to  public
13    inspection.
14        From the group of responsible bidders the  lowest  bidder
15    shall  be  selected  in the following manner: to all bids for
16    sales the gross receipts of which are not taxable  under  the
17    Retailers'  "Retailers Occupation Tax Act", approved June 28,
18    1933, as amended, there shall be added an amount equal to the
19    tax which would be payable under said Act, if applicable, and
20    the lowest in amount of said adjusted bids and bids for sales
21    the gross receipts of which are taxable under said Act  shall
22    be  considered the lowest bid; provided, that, if said lowest
23    bid relates to  a  sale  not  taxable  under  said  Act,  any
24    contract  entered  into thereon shall be in the amount of the
25    original bid not adjusted as aforesaid.
26        Contracts  shall  not  be  split  into  parts   involving
27    expenditures  of less than $2500 for the purposes of avoiding
28    the provisions of this Section, and all such split  contracts
29    shall  be  void.  If  any  collusion  occurs among bidders or
30    prospective bidders in restraint of freedom  of  competition,
31    by agreement to bid a fixed amount or to refrain from bidding
32    or  otherwise,  the  bids of such bidders shall be void. Each
33    bidder shall accompany his bid with a sworn statement that he
34    has not been a party to any such agreement.

21        (a)  The Authority may adopt a resolution that authorizes
22    a  referendum  on the question of whether the Authority shall
23    be authorized  to  impose  a  retailers'  occupation  tax,  a
24    service  occupation tax, and a use tax in one-quarter percent
25    increments at a rate not to exceed 1%.  The  Authority  shall
26    certify  the  question to the proper election authorities who
27    shall submit the question to the voters of  the  metropolitan
28    area  at  the next regularly scheduled election in accordance
29    with the general election  law.  The  question  shall  be  in
30    substantially the following form:
31        "Shall  the Salem Civic Center Authority be authorized to
32        impose a retailers' occupation tax, a service  occupation
HB0235 Enrolled            -350-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1        tax,  and  a  use  tax at the rate of (rate) for the sole
 2        purpose of obtaining funds for the support, construction,
 3        maintenance,  or  financing  of   a   facility   of   the
 4        Authority?"
 5        Votes  shall  be recorded as "yes" or "no". If a majority
 6    of all votes cast on the proposition  are  in  favor  of  the
 7    proposition, the Authority is authorized to impose the tax.
 8        (b)  The Authority shall impose the retailers' occupation
 9    tax  upon  all  persons  engaged  in  the business of selling
10    tangible personal property  at  retail  in  the  metropolitan
11    area,  at  the  rate  approved  by  referendum,  on the gross
12    receipts from the sales made in the course of  such  business
13    within  the  metropolitan  area.   The tax imposed under this
14    Section and all civil penalties that may be  assessed  as  an
15    incident  thereof  shall  be  collected  and  enforced by the
16    Department of Revenue.  The  Department  has  full  power  to
17    administer and enforce this Section; to collect all taxes and
18    penalties  so  collected  in  the  manner  provided  in  this
19    Section;  and  to  determine  all  rights to credit memoranda
20    arising on account of the erroneous payment of tax or penalty
21    hereunder.  In the administration of,  and  compliance  with,
22    this  Section,  the Department and persons who are subject to
23    this Section  shall  (i)  have  the  same  rights,  remedies,
24    privileges, immunities, powers and duties, (ii) be subject to
25    the  same  conditions,  restrictions, limitations, penalties,
26    exclusions, exemptions, and definitions of terms,  and  (iii)
27    employ  the  same  modes  of  procedure  as are prescribed in
28    Sections 1, 1a, 1a-1, 1c, 1d, 1e, 1f, 1i, 1j, 1k, 1m, 1n,  2,
29    2-5,  2-5.5, 2-10 (in respect to all provisions therein other
30    than the State rate of tax), 2-15 through 2-70, 2a, 2b, 2c, 3
31    (except  as  to  the  disposition  of  taxes  and   penalties
32    collected   and   provisions   related   to  quarter  monthly
33    payments), 4, 5, 5a, 5b, 5c, 5d, 5e, 5f, 5g, 5i, 5j, 5k,  5l,
34    6,  6a,  6b,  6c,  7,  8,  9,  10, 11, 11a, 12, and 13 of the
HB0235 Enrolled            -351-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    Retailers' Occupation Tax Act and Section 3-7 of the  Uniform
 2    Penalty  and  Interest  Act,  as fully as if those provisions
 3    were set forth in this subsection.
 4        Persons subject to any tax imposed under this  subsection
 5    may  reimburse themselves for their seller's tax liability by
 6    separately stating the tax as  an  additional  charge,  which
 7    charge may be stated in combination, in a single amount, with
 8    State   taxes  that  sellers  are  required  to  collect,  in
 9    accordance with such bracket schedules as the Department  may
10    prescribe.
11        Whenever  the  Department determines that a refund should
12    be made under  this  subsection  to  a  claimant  instead  of
13    issuing  a credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the
14    State Comptroller, who shall cause the warrant  to  be  drawn
15    for  the  amount  specified,  and to the person named, in the
16    notification from the Department.  The refund shall  be  paid
17    by  the  State Treasurer out of the tax fund referenced under
18    paragraph (g) of this Section.
19        If a tax is imposed under  this  subsection  (b),  a  tax
20    shall  also be imposed at the same rate under subsections (c)
21    and (d) of this Section.
22        For the purpose of determining whether a  tax  authorized
23    under  this  Section  is  applicable,  a  retail  sale,  by a
24    producer of coal or other mineral mined  in  Illinois,  is  a
25    sale  at  retail at the place where the coal or other mineral
26    mined  in  Illinois  is  extracted  from  the  earth.    This
27    paragraph  does not apply to coal or other mineral when it is
28    delivered or shipped by the seller  to  the  purchaser  at  a
29    point  outside  Illinois so that the sale is exempt under the
30    Federal Constitution as  a  sale  in  interstate  or  foreign
31    commerce.
32        Nothing  in  this Section shall be construed to authorize
33    the Authority to impose a tax upon the privilege of  engaging
34    in  any  business  which under the Constitution of the United
HB0235 Enrolled            -352-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    States may not be made the subject of taxation by this State.
 2        (c)  If a tax has been imposed under  subsection  (b),  a
 3    service occupation tax shall also be imposed at the same rate
 4    upon  all  persons  engaged, in the metropolitan area, in the
 5    business of making sales of service, who, as an  incident  to
 6    making  those  sales  of  service, transfer tangible personal
 7    property within the metropolitan area as  an  incident  to  a
 8    sale  of  service.  The tax imposed under this subsection and
 9    all civil penalties that  may  be  assessed  as  an  incident
10    thereof  shall be collected and enforced by the Department of
11    Revenue. The Department has  full  power  to  administer  and
12    enforce  this  paragraph;  to collect all taxes and penalties
13    due hereunder; to dispose of taxes and penalties so collected
14    in the manner hereinafter  provided;  and  to  determine  all
15    rights   to  credit  memoranda  arising  on  account  of  the
16    erroneous payment of  tax  or  penalty  hereunder.    In  the
17    administration  of,  and  compliance with this paragraph, the
18    Department and persons who  are  subject  to  this  paragraph
19    shall   (i)  have  the  same  rights,  remedies,  privileges,
20    immunities, powers, and duties, (ii) be subject to  the  same
21    conditions, restrictions, limitations, penalties, exclusions,
22    exemptions,  and  definitions  of terms, and (iii) employ the
23    same modes of procedure  as  are  prescribed  in  Sections  2

 4    Occupation Tax Act and Section 3-7 of the Uniform Penalty and
 5    Interest Act, as fully as if those provisions were set  forth
 6    herein.
 7        Persons  subject  to  any tax imposed under the authority
 8    granted in this subsection may reimburse themselves for their
 9    serviceman's tax liability by separately stating the  tax  as
10    an   additional   charge,  which  charge  may  be  stated  in
11    combination,  in  a  single  amount,  with  State  tax   that
12    servicemen  are  authorized  to collect under the Service Use
13    Tax Act, in accordance with such  bracket  schedules  as  the
14    Department may prescribe.
15        Whenever  the  Department determines that a refund should
16    be made under  this  subsection  to  a  claimant  instead  of
17    issuing  a credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the
18    State Comptroller, who shall cause the warrant  to  be  drawn
19    for  the  amount  specified,  and to the person named, in the
20    notification from the Department.  The refund shall  be  paid
21    by  the  State Treasurer out of the tax fund referenced under
22    paragraph (g) of this Section.
23        Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed to authorize
24    the Authority to impose a tax upon the privilege of  engaging
25    in  any  business  which under the Constitution of the United
26    States may not be made the subject of taxation by the State.
27        (d)  If a tax has been imposed under  subsection  (b),  a
28    use  tax  shall  also  be  imposed  at the same rate upon the
29    privilege of using, in the metropolitan  area,  any  item  of
30    tangible  personal  property  that  is  purchased outside the
31    metropolitan area at retail from  a  retailer,  and  that  is
32    titled  or  registered  at a location within the metropolitan
33    area with an agency  of  this  State's  government.  "Selling
34    price"  is  defined  as in the Use Tax Act.  The tax shall be
HB0235 Enrolled            -354-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    collected from persons whose Illinois address for titling  or
 2    registration  purposes  is given as being in the metropolitan
 3    area.  The tax  shall  be  collected  by  the  Department  of
 4    Revenue for the Authority. The tax must be paid to the State,
 5    or  an  exemption  determination  must  be  obtained from the
 6    Department of Revenue, before the  title  or  certificate  of
 7    registration  for  the  property  may  be issued.  The tax or
 8    proof of exemption may be transmitted to  the  Department  by
 9    way of the State agency with which, or the State officer with
10    whom,  the  tangible  personal  property  must  be  titled or
11    registered if the Department and the State  agency  or  State
12    officer  determine  that  this  procedure  will  expedite the
13    processing of applications for title or registration.
14        The Department has full power to administer  and  enforce
15    this  paragraph; to collect all taxes, penalties and interest
16    due hereunder; to dispose of taxes, penalties and interest so
17    collected  in  the  manner  hereinafter  provided;   and   to
18    determine  all  rights to credit memoranda or refunds arising
19    on account of  the  erroneous  payment  of  tax,  penalty  or
20    interest  hereunder. In the administration of, and compliance
21    with, this subsection, the Department  and  persons  who  are
22    subject  to  this  paragraph  shall (i) have the same rights,
23    remedies, privileges, immunities, powers, and duties, (ii) be
24    subject to the same  conditions,  restrictions,  limitations,
25    penalties,  exclusions, exemptions, and definitions of terms,
26    and  (iii)  employ  the  same  modes  of  procedure  as   are
27    prescribed  in Sections 2 (except the definition of "retailer
28    maintaining a place of business  in  this  State"),  3,  3-5,
29    3-10,  3-45,  3-55,  3-65, 3-70, 3-85, 3a, 4, 6, 7, 8 (except
30    that the jurisdiction to which the tax shall be a debt to the
31    extent indicated in that Section 8 shall be the Authority), 9
32    (except provisions relating to quarter monthly payments), 10,
33    11, 12, 12a, 12b, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21, and 22 of  the  Use
34    Tax  Act  and Section 3-7 of the Uniform Penalty and Interest

 1    Act, that are not inconsistent with this paragraph, as  fully
 2    as if those provisions were set forth herein.
 3        Whenever  the  Department determines that a refund should
 4    be made under  this  subsection  to  a  claimant  instead  of
 5    issuing  a credit memorandum, the Department shall notify the
 6    State Comptroller, who shall cause the order to be drawn  for
 7    the  amount  specified,  and  to  the  person  named,  in the
 8    notification from the Department. The refund shall be paid by
 9    the State Treasurer out of  the  tax  fund  referenced  under
10    paragraph (g) of this Section.
11        (e)  A  certificate  of  registration issued by the State
12    Department of Revenue to  a  retailer  under  the  Retailers'
13    Occupation  Tax  Act  or under the Service Occupation Tax Act
14    shall permit the registrant to engage in a business  that  is
15    taxed under the tax imposed under paragraphs (b), (c), or (d)
16    of  this  Section  and  no  additional  registration shall be
17    required. A certificate issued under the Use Tax Act  or  the
18    Service  Use  Tax  Act shall be applicable with regard to any
19    tax imposed under paragraph (c) of this Section.
20        (f)  The  results   of   any   election   authorizing   a
21    proposition to impose a tax under this Section or effecting a
22    change  in  the  rate of tax shall be certified by the proper
23    election authorities and filed with the  Illinois  Department
24    on  or  before  the  first  day  of  April.   In addition, an
25    ordinance imposing, discontinuing, or effecting a  change  in
26    the  rate  of  tax  under this Section shall be adopted and a
27    certified copy thereof filed with the Department on or before
28    the first  day  of  April.   After  proper  receipt  of  such
29    certifications,  the  Department  shall proceed to administer
30    and enforce this Section as of the first  day  of  July  next
31    following such adoption and filing.
32        (g)  The Department of Revenue shall, upon collecting any
33    taxes  and  penalties  as  provided  in this Section, pay the
34    taxes and penalties over to the State  Treasurer  as  trustee
HB0235 Enrolled            -356-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    for the Authority. The taxes and penalties shall be held in a
 2    trust  fund outside the State Treasury. On or before the 25th
 3    day of each calendar month, the Department of  Revenue  shall
 4    prepare  and  certify  to  the  Comptroller  of  the State of
 5    Illinois the amount to be paid to the Authority, which  shall
 6    be the balance in the fund, less any amount determined by the
 7    Department to be necessary for the payment of refunds. Within
 8    10 days after receipt by the Comptroller of the certification
 9    of  the  amount  to be paid to the Authority, the Comptroller
10    shall cause an order to be drawn for payment for  the  amount
11    in   accordance   with   the   directions  contained  in  the
12    certification. Amounts received from the  tax  imposed  under
13    this   Section   shall   be   used   only  for  the  support,
14    construction, maintenance, or financing of a facility of  the
15    Authority.
16        (h)  When certifying the amount of a monthly disbursement
17    to  the  Authority  under  this Section, the Department shall
18    increase or decrease the amounts by an  amount  necessary  to
19    offset  any  miscalculation  of  previous disbursements.  The
20    offset amount  shall  be  the  amount  erroneously  disbursed
21    within  the  previous 6 months from the time a miscalculation
22    is discovered.

18        The  bonds  shall be sold by the corporate authorities of
19    the Authority in such manner as  said  corporate  authorities
20    shall  determine,  except  that if issued to bear interest at

31    are sold the entire authorized issue, or  any  part  thereof,
32    shall  be  offered  for  sale as a unit after advertising for
33    bids at least three times in a  daily  newspaper  of  general

19    accordance with the Omnibus  Bond  Acts,  regardless  of  any
20    provision  of  this  Article  Act that may appear to be or to
21    have been more restrictive than those  Acts,  (ii)  that  the
22    provisions  of  this  Section  are  not  a  limitation on the
23    supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts, and
24    (iii) that instruments issued under this Section  within  the

10    instruments under the law of the State of Illinois.
11        The  bonds  shall be sold by the corporate authorities of
12    the Authority in such manner as  said  corporate  authorities

30    provided it shall be the duty of the corporate authorities of
31    the  Authority to fix and establish rates, charges, rents and
32    fees  for  the  use  of  facilities  acquired,   constructed,
33    reconstructed,  extended or improved with the proceeds of the
34    sale of said  bonds  sufficient  at  all  times,  with  other

10    the purpose of setting forth the covenants and undertaking of
11    the Authority in connection with the issuance thereof and the
12    issuance  of  any  additional bonds payable from such revenue
13    income to be derived from  the  fairs,  exhibits,  shows  and
14    events and from charges made for the use of its facilities or
15    for  admissions to its events, or from other revenue, if any,
16    the Authority may execute and deliver a  trust  agreement  or
17    agreements;  provided that no lien upon any physical property
18    of the Authority shall be created thereby.
19        A remedy for any breach or default of the  terms  of  any
20    such  trust agreement by the Authority may be had by mandamus
21    proceedings in any Court of competent jurisdiction to  compel
22    performance and compliance therewith, but the trust agreement
23    may  prescribe  by whom or on whose behalf such action may be
24    instituted.
25        Before any such revenue bonds (excepting refunding bonds)
26    are sold the entire authorized issue, or  any  part  thereof,
27    shall  be  offered  for  sale as a unit after advertising for
28    bids at least  3  times  in  a  daily  newspaper  of  general
29    circulation  published  in  the  metropolitan  area, the last
30    publication to be at least 10 days before bids  are  required
31    to  be  filed.  Copies of such advertisement may be published
32    in any newspaper  or  financial  publication  in  the  United
33    States.   All  bids  shall  be  sealed,  filed  and opened as
34    provided by ordinance and the bonds shall be awarded  to  the

 1    highest  and  best bidder or bidders therefor.  The Authority
 2    shall have the right to reject all bids and  readvertise  for
 3    bids in the manner provided for in the initial advertisement.
 4    However,  if  no  bids are received such bonds may be sold at
 5    not less than par value, without further advertising,  within
 6    60  days  after the bids are required to be filed pursuant to
 7    any advertisement.

29    the  highest bidder (in case of sale, concession or lease) or
30    the lowest bidder (in case of purchase or expenditure) unless
31    authorized or approved by a vote of at least three-fourths of
32    the  members  of  the  Board,  and  unless  such  action   is

 2    kept on file in the principal office  of  the  Authority  and
 3    open to public inspection.
 4        From  the  group of responsible bidders the lowest bidder
 5    shall be selected in the following manner:  to all  bids  for
 6    sales  the  gross receipts of which are not taxable under the
 7    "Retailers' Occupation Tax Act", approved June 28,  1933,  as
 8    amended,  there  shall  be  added  an amount equal to the tax
 9    which would be payable under said Act, if applicable, and the
10    lowest in amount of said adjusted bids and bids for sales the
11    gross receipts of which are taxable under said Act  shall  be
12    considered the lowest bid; provided, that, if said lowest bid
13    relates  to  a  sale not taxable under said Act, any contract
14    entered into thereon shall be in the amount of  the  original
15    bid not adjusted as aforesaid.
16        Contracts   shall  not  be  split  into  parts  involving
17    expenditures of less than $2500 for the purposes of  avoiding
18    the  provisions of this Section, and all such split contracts
19    shall be void.  If any  collusion  occurs  among  bidders  or
20    prospective  bidders  in restraint of freedom of competition,
21    by agreement to bid a fixed amount or to refrain from bidding
22    or otherwise, the bids of such bidders shall be  void.   Each
23    bidder shall accompany his bid with a sworn statement that he
24    has not been a party to any such agreement.
25        Members  of  the  Board,  officers  and  employees of the
26    Authority, and their relatives within the  fourth  degree  of
27    consanguinity by the terms of the civil law, are forbidden to
28    be  interested  directly  or  indirectly  in any contract for
29    construction of maintenance  work  or  for  the  delivery  of
30    materials, supplies or equipment.
31        The  Board shall have the right to reject all bids and to
32    readvertise for bids.  If after  any  such  advertisement  no
33    responsible  and  satisfactory  bid,  within the terms of the
34    advertisement, shall be received, the Board  may  award  such
HB0235 Enrolled            -416-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    contract, without competitive bidding, provided that it shall
 2    not  be less advantageous to the Authority than any valid bid
 3    received pursuant to advertisement.
 4        The Board shall adopt rules and regulations to carry into
 5    effect the provisions of this Section.

26                     PART 1. GENERAL PROVISIONS
27        Section  998-1.  Explanation.  Because  this  Act  is   a
28    codification  of  existing law, this Article is included only
29    for informational purposes to show the  relationship  between
30    provisions  of  prior civic center laws and the corresponding
31    standard civic  center  provisions  of  Article  2  that  are
HB0235 Enrolled            -422-               LRB9000879DJcd
 1    incorporated  by  reference  into  Articles 5 through 280. In
 2    Parts 5 through 280 of this Article, each Part sets forth  in
 3    full  only  those  provisions of prior civic center laws that
 4    have been replaced by standard  civic  center  provisions.  A
 5    provision  of  a  prior  civic  center  law that has not been
 6    replaced by a standard civic center provision  and  that  has
 7    been  retained  in  one  of Articles 5 through 280 is not set
 8    forth in full in this Article, but there is set forth in  the
 9    appropriate  Part  of  this  Article (i) a Section number and
10    caption and (ii) a reference to the Section located in one of
11    Articles 5 through 280 in which the nonstandard provision  is
12    contained.  In  Parts  5  through 280 of this Article, in the
13    text of a Section, (i)  matter  that  is  stricken  indicates
14    matter  that  is deleted from prior law in order to state the
15    corresponding standard civic center  provision,  (ii)  matter
16    that  is  underscored indicates matter that is added to prior
17    law in order to state the corresponding standard civic center
18    provision, and (iii) the symbol "* * *" indicates matter that
19    has not been replaced by standard civic center provisions and
20    that has been retained in Articles  5  through  280.    If  a
21    Section  of  prior  law  has  been  replaced by 2 or more new
22    Sections representing standard civic center  provisions,  the
23    beginning  of  the second and following of those new Sections
24    is indicated in the text as a new paragraph beginning in  the
25    form  "Section 2-XX.". If the text of the second or following
26    of those new Sections appears in the middle of  the  text  of
27    another of those new Sections, the point at which the text of
28    the other new Section resumes is indicated by a parenthetical
29    reference in the form "(Section 2-XX, resumed)".
30        This  Article  is  repealed on the effective date of this
31    Act.
