DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL


Illiana Expressway. For purposes of the statute concerning tollways, permits the designation of the Illiana Expressway (instead of a part of Interstate Highway 69) as a tollway.

For purposes of the statute governing public-private agreements by the department of transportation: (1) authorizes a public-private agreement for the Illiana Expressway (instead of a part of Interstate Highway 69); and (2) provides that if all or part of a project to be carried out by a public-private agreement will consist of a tollway, the draft version of the request for proposals for that project must require any offeror to submit a proposal based upon that part of the project that will consist of a tollway, and deletes the current authority for offerors to submit alternative proposals based upon the assumption that a different part or none of the project will consist of a tollway. For purposes of the statute governing the designation of state highways as tollways, permits the designation of the Illiana Expressway (instead of a part of Interstate Highway 69) as a tollway without legislative authorization.
