PTELL-Qualified School Dist

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law in the Property Tax Code. Provides that, beginning in levy year 2022, for taxing districts that are school districts (other than qualified school districts), "extension limitation" means 0% or the rate of increase approved by the voters (currently, (a) the lesser of 5% or the percentage increase in the Consumer Price Index during the 12-month calendar year preceding the levy year or (b) the rate of increase approved by voters). Provides that the term "qualified school district" means a school district that certifies to the county clerk that the district: (i) submitted a claim or claims to the Illinois State Board of Education for reimbursement of certain State mandated categoricals for the school fiscal year immediately preceding the levy year and received reimbursement for those State mandated categoricals that was less than 97% of the district's claims; or (ii) did not receive the minimum funding required for that school district under the evidence-based funding formula. Amends the School Code. Requires the State Board of Education to certify to each school district whether or not the school district is eligible for designation as a qualified school district. Effective January 1, 2021, but does not take effect at all unless Senate Joint Resolution Constitutional Amendment No. 1 of the 101st General Assembly is approved by the voters of the State prior to that date.
