    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Toll Highway Act is amended by changing
Section 14 as follows:
    (605 ILCS 10/14)  (from Ch. 121, par. 100-14)
    Sec. 14. (a) The Authority shall, prior to the commencement
of any engineering and traffic study or studies to determine
the feasibility of constructing additional toll highways
within the State of Illinois, submit to the Governor for his
approval, the route, or routes, proposed for additional toll
highways together with an estimate of the cost of the proposed
study or studies. If the Governor shall approve such proposed
study or studies and the estimated cost thereof, or shall fail
to disapprove such proposed study or studies and estimate of
cost thereof, within 30 days after receipt thereof, the
Authority may, thereupon, proceed with such study or studies.
    (b) The Authority shall create a local advisory committee
of members from each county in which any portion of an
additional toll highway is proposed to be constructed. The
committee members shall be designated by township and municipal
governing bodies in proportion to the percentage of corridor
property situated within the unincorporated area of a township
and incorporated municipalities located in the same township.
No less than 50% of the members of this committee shall be
representatives of organized citizen groups directly affected
by the proposed corridor. All meetings shall be held in
compliance with the Open Meetings Act. The committee shall
consider and advise the Authority with respect to the impact on
property owners, land use, and other impacts of the proposed
highway. The committee shall be dissolved when one year has
elapsed since the opening of the tollway for which the
committee was created.
