Short description: 
SCHOOLS AID SUPP-ADJUST GRANTS                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the School Code  and  the  General  State  Aid  Continuing      
   Appropriation Law.  For supplementary grants in aid, provides that the      
   amount  of  the  aggregate  general  State  aid  in  combination  with      
   supplemental  general  State  aid  for  which  each school district is      
   eligible for the 1998-1999 school year and any subsequent school  year      
   (instead  of just the 1998-1999 school year) shall be no less than the      
   amount of  the  aggregate  general  State  aid  entitlement  that  was      
   received  by  the district for the 1997-98 school year and removes the      
   provision that requires the supplementary payments that districts  are      
   to  receive to be prorated if the amount appropriated is insufficient.      
   Adds as one of the eligibility criteria to qualify for a general State      
   aid adjustment grant  that  the  operating  tax  rate  of  the  school      
   district  in  the  preceding  tax  year  would  have  been, absent any      
   reduction by the Clerk of the County as a result of  the  requirements      
   of  the  Property Tax Extension Limitation Law, at least 3.00%, 2.30%,      
   or 1.41% depending on the school district.  Provides that  claims  for      
   general  State  aid adjustment grants shall be paid in a lump sum from      
   appropriations  made  expressly  for  claims  (instead  of  only  from      
   appropriations made by the General Assembly expressly for claims)  and      
   removes  a  provision  that  requires  the appropriation available for      
   claims  to  be  proportionately  prorated  if  the  appropriation   is      
   insufficient.   Adds references to provisions concerning supplementary      
   grants in aid and general State aid adjustment grants to  the  General      
   State   Aid   Continuing  Appropriation  Law.   Makes  other  changes.      
   Effective July 1, 1998.
