Capital Development Board - RG 419 | Illinois State Archives

Name: Capital Development Board - RG 419
Variant Name: Illinois Building Authority


Historical Note: The Illinois Building Authority was created in 1961. Its responsibilities previously had been part of those of the Department of Public Works and Buildings. The authority was composed of seven members appointed by the Governor. Duties included conducting studies of the need for state facilities, making recommendations to the General Assembly, and with legislative approval, acquiring property, constructing facilities, issuing and selling bonds to finance construction, and charging agencies for the use of facilities (L. 1961, p. 3383). In 1972 the Capital Development Board replaced the Illinois Building Authority. It also had seven members appointed by the Governor. Duties remained basically the same. However, the board did not sell bonds to finance construction but was charged with conducting continuous research on improvements in the choice and use of materials and recommending revisions to established building and construction codes to promote public safety and reduce construction costs (P.A. 77-1995, pp. 460-466).
