Sec. 2. Public policy. The General Assembly has determined that the federal government has imposed certain restrictions on the aggregate amount of private activity bonds, the interest on which is not included in federal gross income for purposes of federal income tax, which may be issued by the State, its agencies, instrumentalities and local governments, including home rule and non-home rule governments. It is necessary for the State to establish procedures in order to achieve marketability and to ensure the equitable issuance of such bonds. It is declared to be the purpose of this Act to establish the compliance provisions for the State and units of local government in the issuance of such private activity bonds.

(a) No unit of local government shall issue any private activity bond, except in conformity with rules established by the Governor's office pursuant to this Act.
(b) The total volume cap available to all units of local government is hereby assigned to the Local Government Pool. The Local Government Pool for each calendar year shall be allocated by the Governor's office as follows:
(i) Any unit of local government may receive an

allocation of volume cap from the Local Government Pool by filing with the Governor's office a request for an allocation, together with a certified copy of the related official action, of the governing body of the local government. Upon receipt the Governor's office shall promptly determine the amount of the Local Government Pool remaining under this subsection (b), and shall allocate to such unit of local government the amount set forth in its official action (or such lesser amount as such unit of local government or person authorized to act on its behalf may request) unless the amount requested shall exceed the amount remaining in the Local Government Pool. All allocations made pursuant to this Section shall be valid for a period of 60 days. Any unit of local government to which an allocation has been made, and which has not issued its private activity bonds prior to the expiration of the allocation, may refile with the Governor's office seeking a new allocation under this Section.

(ii) In making such allocation, the Governor's office

shall consider only the dollar amount set forth in such request and the amount of the Local Government Pool remaining under this Section. No unit of local government may be granted more than 10% of the amount of total allocation initially available to units of local government for a single project.

(iii) All requests for an allocation shall be

processed in the order received by the Governor's office. It is the intention of this Act that allocation requests be made only within 60 days prior to the expected issuance of private activity bonds.

(iv) For each unit of local government making a

request for an allocation, a public official responsible for authorizing the issuance shall make a part of the request a certification that under penalty of perjury, to the best of the public official's knowledge, the issuance of the private activity bond was not made in consideration of any bribe, gift, gratuity or direct or indirect contribution to any political campaign.

(v) In the event any unit of local government has

issued private activity bonds prior to the effective date of this Act, the Governor's office, upon request made within 30 days after the effective date of this Act by any unit of local government, or any person authorized to act on its behalf, shall promptly allocate the amount requested to such applicant, with the same effect as if such allocation has been made prior to the issuance of such private activity bonds, unless such allocation shall exceed the Local Government Pool remaining under this Section.

(c) The amount of volume cap remaining in the Local Government Pool as of July 14 of each calendar year, shall be, on July 15, of each calendar year, reserved to the Governor's office for reallocation to the State, State agencies or units of local government applying under this Section. The amount of volume cap, the allocation of which has expired after July 14 of any calendar year, is reserved upon its expiration to the Governor's office for reallocation to the State, State agencies or units of local government applying under this Section. Requests for allocation of volume cap by the State, State agencies and units of local government under this subsection shall be processed as they are received by the Governor's office.
(d) The State or State agency which has received an allocation of volume cap from the Governor's office under this Section may issue private activity bonds within such limit during the balance of the calendar year or as provided in subsection (e) of Section 4 of this Act.
