          105 ILCS 5/2-3.130 new                                               
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          105 ILCS 5/10-20.12b

   and  amends  provisions of the School Code relating to determining the      
   residency and legal custody of a pupil for tuition  payment  purposes.      
   Effective immediately.                                                      
        CONFERENCE COMMITTEE REPORT NO. 1.                                     
        Recommends that the House recede from H-am 1.                          
        Recommends that the bill be amended as follows:                        
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          105 ILCS 5/19-1                 from Ch. 122, par. 19-1              
        Changes the title and  replaces  everything  after  the  enacting      
   clause.   Adds  language changing a provision of the School Code under      
   which school districts that meet  prescribed  statutory  criteria  are      
   authorized  to  issue  bonds  before  January  1,  1999.   Changes the      
   applicable statutory criteria that a district must meet to  issue  the      
   bonds. Eliminates a population requirement currently applicable to the      
   county  in  which  the  school  district is located. Provides that the      
   bonds must be issued to purchase a site and equip a new high school in      
   a unit school district  whose  existing  high  school  was  originally      
   constructed  at  least 35 years before the sale of the bonds.  Changes      
   the maximum equalized assessed valuation and average daily  attendance      
   criteria  applicable  to  a  district that desires to issue the bonds,      
   requires the district's board of education to by resolution  determine      
   that  a  new  high  school  is  needed because of projected enrollment      
   increases, and increases the percentage of those voting in an election      
   who must approve a proposition for issuance of the  bonds.   Effective
