CHICAGO SOUTHLAND CIVIC CENTER                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Civic Center Code to create the Chicago Southland           
   Civic Center Law of 1998 to include certain municipalities and amends       
   the Election Code. Provides that the initial members of the Authority       
   Board shall be appointed by the county commissioners or Board members       
   whose district includes territory within the designated metropolitan        
   area. Provides that beginning in 2002, 5 Board members shall be             
   elected at large from the metropolitan area at a general election and       
   that the terms of the appointed members shall then expire. Provides         
   that the initial Board appointed shall have weighted votes based upon       
   the population of their represented territory or an equal part of           
   that territory and that the elected Board members shall have equal          
   votes. Incorporates certain provisions of the Civic Center Code             
   including the powers to acquire, construct, lease, and maintain civic       
   center facilities, to collect fees for the use of the facilities, and       
   to incur debt and issue revenue bonds to carry out these powers.            
   Provides that the Law shall be repealed on July 1, 2002 unless the          
   Authority has commenced construction of a civic center before January       
   1, 2002. Effective January 1, 1999.
