(110 ILCS 805/3A-26) (from Ch. 122, par. 103A-26)
Sec. 3A-26. Any board is authorized to:
a. Acquire by purchase, construct, enlarge, improve, equip, complete, operate, control and manage an exhibition facility.
b. Charge for the use of such a facility.
c. Hold in its treasury all funds derived from the operation of the facility and apply them toward the retirement of any revenue bonds issued in connection with the facility.
d. Enter into contracts touching in any manner any matter within the objects and purposes of Sections 3A-25 through 3A-29.
e. Pledge the revenues raised from such a facility for the payment of any bonds issued to pay for the facility as provided in Sections 3A-25 through 3A-29.
f. Borrow money and issue and sell bonds at such price as the board may determine to finance and to refund or refinance any and all bonds issued and sold by the board pursuant to Sections 3A-25 through 3A-29. No bonds issued under Sections 3A-25 through 3A-29, however, may bear interest in excess of the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at the time of the making of the contract, computed to the maturity of the bonds.
With respect to instruments for the payment of money issued under this Section either before, on, or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1989, it is and always has been the intention of the General Assembly (i) that the Omnibus Bond Acts are and always have been supplementary grants of power to issue instruments in accordance with the Omnibus Bond Acts, regardless of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts, (ii) that the provisions of this Section are not a limitation on the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts, and (iii) that instruments issued under this Section within the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts are not invalid because of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts.
