    AN ACT to amend the  Public  Utilities  Act  by  changing

    Be  it  enacted  by  the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:

    Section  5.  The  Public  Utilities  Act  is  amended  by
changing Section 13-505.7 as follows:

    (220 ILCS 5/13-505.7)
    Sec. 13-505.7.  Interactive video learning tariffs.   The
Commission  shall permit telecommunications carriers to offer
special interactive video learning tariffs for the  exclusive
use   of  qualified  educational  institutions.   Except  for
carriers subject to Section 13-504, the rates in such tariffs
shall not be less than the long run service incremental costs
of providing interactive video learning services.   Qualified
educational   institutions   shall   be   limited  to  school
districts; public or private not-for-profit schools enrolling
more than 20 pupils for kindergarten grade or over up through
grade  12;   and   public   or   private   degree   granting,
not-for-profit  colleges  or  universities;  public libraries
organized under the Public Library District Act  of  1991  or
the  Illinois Local Library Act; and regional library systems
organized under the Illinois Library System Act.  Interactive
video learning consists of video, data, voice, and electronic
information  used  by a qualified educational institution for
instruction,   learning,   and   training.   These    special
telecommunications carrier interactive video learning tariffs
shall be exempt from the provisions of Sections 9-241, 9-250,
13-502,  13-505.1,  and  13-505.2  of  this  Act.   Provided,
however,  telecommunications  carriers  may  also  file  such
special  tariffs  pursuant  to this Section and in accordance
with Section 13-502.
