days before the date of the annual meeting.
    (b) Notwithstanding the provisions of any other Act, except
as provided in Section 6-620 of the Illinois Highway Code,
before establishing or increasing any township tax rate that

    Section 10. The Illinois Highway Code is amended by adding
Section 6-620 as follows:
    (605 ILCS 5/6-620 new)
    Sec. 6-620. Validation of certain levies.
    (a) Any road district tax that was authorized by the
electors at an annual or special town meeting during the years
1975 through 1979 for a period not exceeding 5 years, but that
was not re-authorized within 5 years after it was authorized
due to Public Acts 81-779, 81-821, and 81-1509, which repealed
the 5-year limitation, is hereby validated for all tax levy
years subsequent to 1980 only to the extent that the authority
to tax did not automatically expire after 1980.
    (b) Any road district tax that was levied prior to 1980
shall not be subject to the requirements of subsection (b) of
Section 30-20 of the Township Code if that tax was or is:
        (i) re-authorized by the electors at an annual or
    special town meeting after the year 1980; and
        (ii) levied at least once during the 3-year period
    preceding the reauthorization.
    Section 99. Effective date. This Act takes effect upon
becoming law.
