A BILL FOR

HB3675LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1 AN ACT concerning local government.
2 Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
3represented in the General Assembly:
4
ARTICLE 1. LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS.
5 Section 1-1. Short title. This Act may be cited as the
6Local Government Taxpayer Protection Act.
7 Section 1-5. Legislative intent. As of the effective date
8of this amendatory Act of the 100th General Assembly, Illinois
9taxpayers are paying the second highest median property taxes
10in the United States. While property taxes are a critical
11source of revenue for units of local government, school
12districts, and other local governmental entities, the high
13property tax burden hinders economic growth. The General
14Assembly finds that freezing property tax extensions until
15voters, acting by referendum, approve an increase in the tax
16extension will return control of local tax and spending policy
17to voters and, as property values begin to grow, reduce
18property tax rates.
19 To ensure that units of local government, school districts,
20and other governmental entities that depend upon property tax
21revenue are able to continue providing critical services to
22their residents notwithstanding this property tax freeze, the

HB3675- 2 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1General Assembly further finds that it is necessary to reduce
2the State-imposed mandates on local governments that have
3increased the cost of providing these services. These mandates
4include the following:
5 (1) According to the United States Census Bureau's 2012
6 report on state and local government finance, employee
7 wages and benefits are the largest operational expense of
8 local governments in Illinois. Although the Illinois
9 Public Labor Relations Act and the Illinois Educational
10 Labor Relations Act are intended to afford local
11 governments with discretion over their budgets, employee
12 costs remain a significant expense. The changes made by
13 this amendatory Act of the 100th General Assembly to the
14 Illinois Public Labor Relations Act and the Illinois
15 Educational Labor Relations Act are intended to empower
16 local governments to contain these costs.
17 (2) Despite critical infrastructure and capital needs,
18 the cost of capital projects is often higher for local
19 governments than for the private sector. In particular,
20 labor costs are higher due to the State's mandated
21 prevailing wage, which often exceeds the wage required for
22 federally funded projects and the wage that actually
23 prevails in the market, and the use of project labor
24 agreements.
25 The purpose of this amendatory Act of the 100th General
26Assembly is to alleviate the property tax burden. To offset the

HB3675- 3 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1property tax freeze, it is necessary to reduce labor and
2capital costs incurred by units of local government, school
3districts, and other local governmental entities as a result of
4State mandates.

24written or oral, and whether express or implied, between any

26this Section is hereby declared to be unlawful, null and void,

10taxable lot, block, tract, or parcel of real property in the
11redevelopment project area over and above the initial equalized
12assessed value of each property in the redevelopment project
13area. For the taxes which are extended for the 1997 levy year,
14the recovered tax increment value for a non-home rule taxing
15district that first became subject to this Law for the 1995
16levy year because a majority of its 1994 equalized assessed
17value was in an affected county or counties shall be increased

4real property from a redevelopment project area established
5under the Tax Increment Allocation Development Act in the
6Illinois Municipal Code, the Industrial Jobs Recovery Law in

19value of all real property in the territory under the
20jurisdiction of the taxing district during the prior levy year.
21For those taxing districts that reduced their aggregate

23aggregate extension in any of the last 3 preceding levy years
24shall be used for the purpose of computing the limiting rate.
25The denominator shall not include new property or the recovered
26tax increment value. If a new rate, a rate decrease, or a

HB3675- 26 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b

2after March 21, 2006, then (i) the otherwise applicable
3limiting rate shall be increased by the amount of the new rate
4or shall be reduced by the amount of the rate decrease, as the
5case may be, or (ii) in the case of a limiting rate increase,
6the limiting rate shall be equal to the rate set forth in the
7proposition approved by the voters for each of the years
8specified in the proposition, after which the limiting rate of
9the taxing district shall be calculated as otherwise provided.
10In the case of a taxing district that obtained referendum
11approval for an increased limiting rate on March 20, 2012, the
12limiting rate for tax year 2012 shall be the rate that
13generates the approximate total amount of taxes extendable for
14that tax year, as set forth in the proposition approved by the
15voters; this rate shall be the final rate applied by the county
16clerk for the aggregate of all capped funds of the district for
17tax year 2012.

1extension for payment of principal and interest on bonds issued
2by the taxing district without referendum, but not including

26to the amount that the aggregate extension of the taxing

HB3675- 40 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1district would have been for the last preceding levy year if
2either or both (i) actual, rather than estimated, valuations or
3rates had been used to calculate the extension of taxes for the
4last levy year, or (ii) the tax extension for the last

24Tax Increment Allocation Development Act in the Illinois
25Municipal Code, previously established under the Industrial
26Jobs Recovery Law in the Illinois Municipal Code, previously

HB3675- 42 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1established under the Economic Development Project Area Tax
2Increment Act of 1995, or previously established under the
3Economic Development Area Tax Increment Allocation Act, of each
4taxable lot, block, tract, or parcel of real property in the
5redevelopment project area over and above the initial equalized
6assessed value of each property in the redevelopment project
7area. For the taxes which are extended for the 1997 levy year,
8the recovered tax increment value for a non-home rule taxing
9district that first became subject to this Law for the 1995
10levy year because a majority of its 1994 equalized assessed
11value was in an affected county or counties shall be increased
12if a municipality terminated the designation of an area in 1993

14the Tax Increment Allocation Development Act in the Illinois
15Municipal Code, previously established under the Industrial
16Jobs Recovery Law in the Illinois Municipal Code, or previously

19assessed value of each taxable lot, block, tract, or parcel of
20real property in the redevelopment project area over and above
21the initial equalized assessed value of each property in the
22redevelopment project area. In the first year after a
23municipality removes a taxable lot, block, tract, or parcel of
24real property from a redevelopment project area established
25under the Tax Increment Allocation Development Act in the
26Illinois Municipal Code, the Industrial Jobs Recovery Law in

HB3675- 43 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1the Illinois Municipal Code, or the Economic Development Area
2Tax Increment Allocation Act, "recovered tax increment value"
3means the amount of the current year's equalized assessed value
4of each taxable lot, block, tract, or parcel of real property
5removed from the redevelopment project area over and above the
6initial equalized assessed value of that real property before
7removal from the redevelopment project area.
8 Except as otherwise provided in this Section, "limiting
9rate" means a fraction the numerator of which is the last
10preceding aggregate extension base times an amount equal to one
11plus the extension limitation defined in this Section and the
12denominator of which is the current year's equalized assessed
13value of all real property in the territory under the
14jurisdiction of the taxing district during the prior levy year.
15For those taxing districts that reduced their aggregate
16extension for the last preceding levy year, the highest
17aggregate extension in any of the last 3 preceding levy years
18shall be used for the purpose of computing the limiting rate.
19The denominator shall not include new property or the recovered
20tax increment value. If a new rate, a rate decrease, or a
21limiting rate increase has been approved at an election held
22after March 21, 2006, then (i) the otherwise applicable
23limiting rate shall be increased by the amount of the new rate
24or shall be reduced by the amount of the rate decrease, as the
25case may be, or (ii) in the case of a limiting rate increase,
26the limiting rate shall be equal to the rate set forth in the

HB3675- 44 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1proposition approved by the voters for each of the years
2specified in the proposition, after which the limiting rate of
3the taxing district shall be calculated as otherwise provided.
4In the case of a taxing district that obtained referendum
5approval for an increased limiting rate on March 20, 2012, the
6limiting rate for tax year 2012 shall be the rate that
7generates the approximate total amount of taxes extendable for
8that tax year, as set forth in the proposition approved by the
9voters; this rate shall be the final rate applied by the county
10clerk for the aggregate of all capped funds of the district for
11tax year 2012.

18increase in the Consumer Price Index during the 12-month
19calendar year preceding the levy year, whichever is less. A
20taxing district may increase its extension limitation for one
21or more levy years if that taxing district holds a referendum
22before the levy date for the first levy year at which a
23majority of voters voting on the issue approves adoption of a

26 single county and to which paragraph (2) of subsection (e)

HB3675- 52 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1 is not applicable, if each county other than an affected
2 county in which any of the equalized assessed valuation of
3 the taxing district is located has held a referendum under

10 following the year in which the last referendum in a county
11 in which the taxing district has any equalized assessed
12 valuation is held. For the purposes of this Law, the last
13 referendum shall be deemed to be the referendum making this
14 Law applicable to the taxing district. For purposes of this
15 Section, in determining whether a majority of the equalized
16 assessed valuation of the taxing district is located in one
17 or more counties that have approved a referendum under this
18 Section, the equalized assessed valuation of the taxing
19 district in any affected county shall be included with the

5shall determine whether the taxing district is subject to this
6Law and, if so, shall notify the taxing district and the county
7clerks of all of the counties in which a portion of the
8equalized assessed valuation of the taxing district is located
9that, beginning the following January 1, the taxing district is
10subject to this Law. For each taxing district subject to
11paragraph (2) of subsection (e) of this Section, the Department
12of Revenue shall notify the taxing district and the county
13clerks of all of the counties in which a portion of the
14equalized assessed valuation of the taxing district is located
15that, beginning January 1, 1997, the taxing district is subject
16to this Law.
17 (g) Referenda held under this Section shall be conducted in

25Limitation Law to all non-home rule taxing districts that have
26all or a portion of their equalized assessed valuation situated

HB3675- 55 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b

3be in substantially the following form:
4 Shall the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law (35
5 ILCS 200/18-185 through 35 ILCS 200/18-245), which limits
6 annual property tax extension increases, apply to non-home

8 equalized assessed valuation located in (name of county)?
9Votes on the question shall be recorded as "yes" or "no".
10 (e) The county clerk shall order the proposition submitted
11to the electors of the county at the election specified in the
12ordinance or resolution. If part of the county is under the

15or resolution to each board of election commissioners, which
16shall order the proposition submitted to the electors of the
17taxing district within its jurisdiction at the election
18specified in the ordinance or resolution.
19 (f) With respect to taxing districts having all of their
20equalized assessed valuation located in one county, if a
21majority of the votes cast on the proposition are against the
22proposition, then this Law shall not apply to the taxing
23district beginning on January 1 of the year following the date
24of the referendum.
25 (g) With respect to taxing districts that do not have all
26of their equalized assessed valuation located in a single

HB3675- 56 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1county, if both of the following conditions are met, then this
2Law shall no longer apply to the taxing district beginning on
3January 1 of the year following the date of the referendum.
4 (1) Each county in which the district has any equalized
5 assessed valuation must either, (i) have held a referendum
6 under this Section, (ii) be an affected county, or (iii)
7 have held a referendum under Section 18-213 at which the
8 voters rejected the proposition at the most recent election
9 at which the question was on the ballot in the county.
10 (2) The majority of the equalized assessed valuation of
11 the taxing district, other than any equalized assessed
12 valuation in an affected county, is in one or more counties
13 in which the voters rejected the proposition. For purposes
14 of this Section, in determining whether a majority of the
15 equalized assessed valuation of the taxing district is
16 located in one or more counties in which the voters have
17 rejected the proposition under this Section, the equalized
18 assessed valuation of any taxing district in a county which
19 has held a referendum under Section 18-213 at which the
20 voters rejected that proposition, at the most recent
21 election at which the question was on the ballot in the
22 county, will be included with the equalized assessed value
23 of the taxing district in counties in which the voters have
24 rejected the referendum held under this Section.
25 (h) Immediately after a referendum is held under this
26Section, the county clerk of the county holding the referendum

HB3675- 57 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1shall give notice of the referendum having been held and its
2results to all taxing districts that have all or a portion of
3their equalized assessed valuation located in the county, the
4county clerk of any other county in which any of the equalized

8Revenue shall determine whether the taxing district is no
9longer subject to this Law and, if the taxing district is no
10longer subject to this Law, the Department of Revenue shall
11notify the taxing district and the county clerks of all of the
12counties in which a portion of the equalized assessed valuation

19equal in number to at least 5% of the total number of
20registered voters in a public school district, asking to apply

22public school district is presented to the clerk of that public
23school district, the clerk shall certify the question of
24whether to apply such limitations to that public school
25district to the proper election authority, who shall submit the

HB3675- 68 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1question at the next election in accordance with the general
2election law.
3 The question of whether to apply the limitations under
4subsection (d) of Section 4.5 shall be presented in
5substantially the following form:

7 free to determine certain matters without negotiating with
8 employee unions, such as the use of service providers, the
9 decision to provide health benefits, caps on total payroll,
10 employees' use of government time for union matters,
11 required staffing levels, evaluation procedures, and
12 curriculum?
13 The votes must be recorded as "Yes" or "No". If a majority

16bargaining with that public school district.
17 (115 ILCS 5/7) (from Ch. 48, par. 1707)
18 Sec. 7. Recognition of exclusive bargaining
19representatives - unit determination. The Board is empowered
20to administer the recognition of bargaining representatives of
21employees of public school districts, including employees of
22districts which have entered into joint agreements, or
23employees of public community college districts, or any State
24college or university, and any State agency whose major
25function is providing educational services, making certain

HB3675- 69 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1that each bargaining unit contains employees with an
2identifiable community of interest and that no unit includes
3both professional employees and nonprofessional employees
4unless a majority of employees in each group vote for inclusion
5in the unit.
6 (a) In determining the appropriateness of a unit, the Board
7shall decide in each case, in order to ensure employees the
8fullest freedom in exercising the rights guaranteed by this
9Act, the unit appropriate for the purpose of collective
10bargaining, based upon but not limited to such factors as
11historical pattern of recognition, community of interest,
12including employee skills and functions, degree of functional
13integration, interchangeability and contact among employees,
14common supervision, wages, hours and other working conditions
15of the employees involved, and the desires of the employees.
16Nothing in this Act, except as herein provided, shall interfere
17with or negate the current representation rights or patterns
18and practices of employee organizations which have
19historically represented employees for the purposes of
20collective bargaining, including but not limited to the
21negotiations of wages, hours and working conditions,
22resolutions of employees' grievances, or resolution of
23jurisdictional disputes, or the establishment and maintenance
24of prevailing wage rates, unless a majority of the employees so
25represented expresses a contrary desire under the procedures
26set forth in this Act. This Section, however, does not prohibit

HB3675- 70 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1multi-unit bargaining. Notwithstanding the above factors,
2where the majority of public employees of a craft so decide,
3the Board shall designate such craft as a unit appropriate for
4the purposes of collective bargaining.
5 The sole appropriate bargaining unit for tenured and
6tenure-track academic faculty at each campus of the University
7of Illinois shall be a unit that is comprised of
8non-supervisory academic faculty employed more than half-time
9and that includes all tenured and tenure-track faculty of that
10University campus employed by the board of trustees in all of
11the campus's undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools
12and degree and non-degree programs (with the exception of the
13college of medicine, the college of pharmacy, the college of
14dentistry, the college of law, and the college of veterinary
15medicine, each of which shall have its own separate unit),
16regardless of current or historical representation rights or
17patterns or the application of any other factors. Any decision,
18rule, or regulation promulgated by the Board to the contrary
19shall be null and void.
20 (b) An educational employer shall voluntarily recognize a
21labor organization for collective bargaining purposes if that
22organization appears to represent a majority of employees in
23the unit. The employer shall post notice of its intent to so
24recognize for a period of at least 20 school days on bulletin
25boards or other places used or reserved for employee notices.
26Thereafter, the employer, if satisfied as to the majority

HB3675- 71 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1status of the employee organization, shall send written
2notification of such recognition to the Board for
3certification. Any dispute regarding the majority status of a
4labor organization shall be resolved by the Board which shall
5make the determination of majority status.
6 Within the 20 day notice period, however, any other
7interested employee organization may petition the Board to seek
8recognition as the exclusive representative of the unit in the
9manner specified by rules and regulations prescribed by the
10Board, if such interested employee organization has been
11designated by at least 15% of the employees in an appropriate
12bargaining unit which includes all or some of the employees in
13the unit intended to be recognized by the employer. In such
14event, the Board shall proceed with the petition in the same
15manner as provided in paragraph (c) of this Section.
16 (c) A labor organization may also gain recognition as the
17exclusive representative by an election of the employees in the
18unit. Petitions requesting an election may be filed with the
19Board:
20 (1) by an employee or group of employees or any labor
21 organizations acting on their behalf alleging and
22 presenting evidence that 30% or more of the employees in a
23 bargaining unit wish to be represented for collective
24 bargaining or that the labor organization which has been
25 acting as the exclusive bargaining representative is no
26 longer representative of a majority of the employees in the

HB3675- 72 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1 unit; or
2 (2) by an employer alleging that one or more labor
3 organizations have presented a claim to be recognized as an
4 exclusive bargaining representative of a majority of the
5 employees in an appropriate unit and that it doubts the
6 majority status of any of the organizations or that it
7 doubts the majority status of an exclusive bargaining
8 representative.
9 The Board shall investigate the petition and if it has
10reasonable cause to suspect that a question of representation
11exists, it shall give notice and conduct a hearing. If it finds
12upon the record of the hearing that a question of
13representation exists, it shall direct an election, which shall
14be held no later than 90 days after the date the petition was
15filed. Nothing prohibits the waiving of hearings by the parties
16and the conduct of consent elections.
17 (c-5) The Board shall designate an exclusive
18representative for purposes of collective bargaining when the
19representative demonstrates a showing of majority interest by
20employees in the unit. If the parties to a dispute are without
21agreement on the means to ascertain the choice, if any, of
22employee organization as their representative, the Board shall
23ascertain the employees' choice of employee organization, on
24the basis of dues deduction authorization or other evidence,
25or, if necessary, by conducting an election. All evidence
26submitted by an employee organization to the Board to ascertain

HB3675- 73 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1an employee's choice of an employee organization is
2confidential and shall not be submitted to the employer for
3review. The Board shall ascertain the employee's choice of
4employee organization within 120 days after the filing of the
5majority interest petition; however, the Board may extend time
6by an additional 60 days, upon its own motion or upon the
7motion of a party to the proceeding. If either party provides
8to the Board, before the designation of a representative, clear
9and convincing evidence that the dues deduction
10authorizations, and other evidence upon which the Board would
11otherwise rely to ascertain the employees' choice of
12representative, are fraudulent or were obtained through
13coercion, the Board shall promptly thereafter conduct an
14election. The Board shall also investigate and consider a
15party's allegations that the dues deduction authorizations and
16other evidence submitted in support of a designation of
17representative without an election were subsequently changed,
18altered, withdrawn, or withheld as a result of employer fraud,
19coercion, or any other unfair labor practice by the employer.
20If the Board determines that a labor organization would have
21had a majority interest but for an employer's fraud, coercion,
22or unfair labor practice, it shall designate the labor
23organization as an exclusive representative without conducting
24an election. If a hearing is necessary to resolve any issues of
25representation under this Section, the Board shall conclude its
26hearing process and issue a certification of the entire

HB3675- 74 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1appropriate unit not later than 120 days after the date the
2petition was filed. The 120-day period may be extended one or
3more times by the agreement of all parties to a hearing to a
4date certain.
5 (c-6) A labor organization or an employer may file a unit
6clarification petition seeking to clarify an existing
7bargaining unit. The Board shall conclude its investigation,
8including any hearing process deemed necessary, and issue a
9certification of clarified unit or dismiss the petition not
10later than 120 days after the date the petition was filed. The
11120-day period may be extended one or more times by the
12agreement of all parties to a hearing to a date certain.
13 (d) An order of the Board dismissing a representation
14petition, determining and certifying that a labor organization
15has been fairly and freely chosen by a majority of employees in
16an appropriate bargaining unit, determining and certifying
17that a labor organization has not been fairly and freely chosen
18by a majority of employees in the bargaining unit or certifying
19a labor organization as the exclusive representative of
20employees in an appropriate bargaining unit because of a
21determination by the Board that the labor organization is the
22historical bargaining representative of employees in the
23bargaining unit, is a final order. Any person aggrieved by any
24such order issued on or after the effective date of this
25amendatory Act of 1987 may apply for and obtain judicial review
26in accordance with provisions of the Administrative Review Law,

HB3675- 75 -LRB100 11355 HLH 21739 b
1as now or hereafter amended, except that such review shall be
2afforded directly in the Appellate Court of a judicial district
3in which the Board maintains an office. Any direct appeal to
4the Appellate Court shall be filed within 35 days from the date
5that a copy of the decision sought to be reviewed was served
6upon the party affected by the decision.
7 No election may be conducted in any bargaining unit during
8the term of a collective bargaining agreement covering such
9unit or subdivision thereof, except the Board may direct an
10election after the filing of a petition between January 15 and
11March 1 of the final year of a collective bargaining agreement.
12Nothing in this Section prohibits the negotiation of a
13collective bargaining agreement covering a period not
14exceeding 3 years. A collective bargaining agreement of less
15than 3 years may be extended up to 3 years by the parties if the
16extension is agreed to in writing before the filing of a
17petition under this Section. In such case, the final year of
18the extension is the final year of the collective bargaining
19agreement. No election may be conducted in a bargaining unit,
20or subdivision thereof, in which a valid election has been held
21within the preceding 12 month period.
