Bill Would Expand Non-Home Rule Powers

The beginning of a legislation session brings a lot of new bills, some of which affect local governments.  We will summarize some of these bills as they are introduced, although if history repeats itself, many of these bills will probably not make it out of rules committees.  

Just yesterday, a bill was introduced to expand the powers of non-home rule municipalities in Illinois. If passed, Illinois House Bill 511 would provide non-home rule municipalities with the same powers as home rule municipalities except for the powers to tax, impose fees, and to incur debt.  You can read the bill here
