Public Act 101-0644
 
SB0531 EnrolledLRB101 04292 RJF 49300 b

    AN ACT concerning government.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The Toll Bridge Act is amended by changing
Section 7 as follows:
 
    (605 ILCS 115/7)  (from Ch. 137, par. 7)
    Sec. 7. Toll rates; electronic toll collection.
    (a) The county board shall fix the rates of toll, and may
from time to time, alter and change the same, including by
establishing a toll rate schedule, setting a maximum toll rate
that may be adjusted from time to time, or by establishing
another toll rate structure, and in case of the neglect of the
owner of the bridge to keep the same in proper repair and safe
for the crossing of persons and property, may prohibit the
taking of toll.
    (b) Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, the county
board may enter into an agreement establishing a toll rate
schedule for a period not to exceed 99 years. This amendatory
Act of the 101st General Assembly is declarative of existing
law and shall be given retroactive effect.
    (c) Except as regarding toll bridges or as otherwise
provided by law, nothing in Public Act 101-398 this amendatory
Act of the 101st General Assembly shall be construed to
authorize a county, municipality, local government, or private
operator to impose a toll upon any public road, street, or
highway; nor shall any provision of Public Act 101-398 this
amendatory Act of the 101st General Assembly be construed to
authorize, pursuant to an intergovernmental agreement or
otherwise, the imposition of any toll upon any public road,
street, or highway.
    (d) The General Assembly finds that electronic toll
collection systems in Illinois should be standardized to
promote safety, efficiency, and traveler convenience. If
electronic toll collection is used on such bridge, the county
shall cause the configuration of the electronic toll collection
system to be compatible with the electronic toll collection
system used by the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority. The
municipality or private operator may enter into an agreement
with the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority to provide for
such compatibility or to have the Authority provide electronic
toll collection or toll violation enforcement services. Any
toll bridges in Winnebago County that are in operation and
collecting tolls on the effective date of this amendatory Act
of the 97th General Assembly are exempt from the provisions of
the Act.
