Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Repeals the Workers' Compensation Act and the Workers' Occupational Diseases Act. Creates the Workers' Compensation and Workers' Occupational Diseases Transfer and Transition Act. Provides that: except as otherwise provided, the provisions of the repealed Acts do not apply to any cause of action based on workplace injuries or diseases accruing on or after January 1, 2012; on January 1, 2012, the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission is divested of jurisdiction over any action over which it had jurisdiction on December 31, 2011; all actions over which the Commission had jurisdiction on December 31, 2011 are transferred to the Supreme Court for assignment to the circuit courts, which assume jurisdiction over those actions on January 1, 2012, with the exception of cases transferred to the Court of Claims; each such action shall be decided in accordance with the substantive law that was in effect when the cause of action accrued and procedure shall be governed by court rule; and if a cause of action for compensation or treatment accrued before January 1, 2012, an action may be brought in the circuit court within the time limits that were in effect when the cause of action accrued, the action shall be decided in accordance with the substantive law that was in effect when the cause of action accrued, and procedure shall be governed by court rule. Provides for: venue; appeals; records, property, and personnel of the Commission; duties of the Department of Labor as a substituting party and successor agency; abolition of the Commission; temporary orders; funds; insurance; offsets; and other matters. Amends the Department of Central Management Services Law of the Civil Administrative Code, the State Finance Act, the Illinois Insurance Code, and the Court of Claims Act to make various changes concerning workplace injuries and occupational diseases. Effective January 1, 2012.

 Land Conveyance Appraisal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Transportation)
 No land conveyances are included in this bill.

 State Debt Impact Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 1032 (H-AM 1) would not change the amount of authorization for any type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and, therefore, would not affect the level of State indebtedness.

 Pension Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
  According to SERS, HB 1032, as amended by HA 1, may have a significant fiscal impact. Currently, worker’s comp benefits are treated as an offset against disability benefits paid by SERS. To the extent that the retirement system must assume the full cost of disability benefits without a worker’s comp offset, there would be a negative fiscal impact resulting from HB 1032, as amended by HA 1. An updated impact note will be issued when more information is made available to CGFA staff by the retirement systems.

 Housing Affordability Impact Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Housing Development Authority)
 This bill will have no effect on the cost of constructing, purchasing, owning, or selling a single-family residence.

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 Although it is not possible to determine costs with any exactness, passage of the bill will have a substantial fiscal impact on the Supreme Court's budget. Based upon information contained in the Annual Report of the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission, in Fiscal Year 2009, 55,497 new cases were filed with the Commission. Assuming 55,000 cases as representative of the annual average, and depending on the complexity of the cases filed, the jurisdictional expansion in the circuit courts, will result in an increase in judicial caseloads and, correspondingly, the number of judges and court staff necessary to expeditiously dispose of these matters. In Fiscal Year 2012, the annual salary of a circuit court judge will be $180,802.

 Judicial Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 Based upon information contained in the Annual Report of the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission, in Fiscal Year 2009, 55,497 new cases were filed with the Commission. Assuming 55,000 cases as representative of the annual average, and depending on the complexity of the cases filed, the jurisdictional expansion in the circuit courts, will result in an increase in judicial caseloads and, correspondingly, the number of judges and court staff necessary to expeditiously dispose of these matters.

 Balanced Budget Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Office of Management and Budget)
 The legislation is not clear regarding claims processing or whether there would be medical fee limits or caps on awards on awards and settlements. The fiscal impact to the State of Illinois is unknown at this point in time.
