SCH CD-TAX EQ GRANT-US BASE
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the School Code. Allows a tax-equivalent grant to be paid
to a school district (other than the Chicago school district) if a
United States military installation or base is located in the
FISCAL NOTE (State Board of Education)
It appears that both Scott Air Force base and the Great Lakes
Naval base may own land within the boundaries of several
school districts. At this point, SBE has been unable to deter-
mine exactly how many acres are owned by the federal government
in each affected school district or the average value of an
acre in each school district. Therefore, SBE has been unable to
calculate the State cost of HB 2390.
STATE MANDATES NOTE (State Board of Education)
At this point, SBE has not been able to determine which dis-
tricts this may apply to, the number of acres of land owned by
the U.S. in military bases/installations, or the average value
of an acre in each school district. Therefore, SBE has been
unable to calculate a potential cost for the State.
HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
