Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the State Finance Act and the Illinois Aeronautics Act. Creates the Baggage Fee Sharing Program and the Baggage Fee Sharing Revolving Fund. Provides that the Department of Transportation shall collect a fee equal to 6.25% of all fees charged and collected in this State by persons operating aircraft for hire or reward for simultaneously transporting tangible personal property. Provides for the disposition of the collected fees. Provides limitations and exceptions to the Baggage Fee Sharing Program. Provides that the Department may adopt rules to implement the program. Effective immediately.

 State Debt Impact Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 1397 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.

 Judicial Note (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 HB 1397 would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Transportation)
 Passage of HB 1397 will cause a fiscal impact to the Illinois Department of Transportation in the amount of $18.2 million. However, this does not take into account administrative costs, which IDOT is unable to estimate and are expected to be significant.

 Balanced Budget Note (Office of Management and Budget)
 HB 1397 does not have any significant impact to the State. Any fees involved with implementing the program are likely to be minimal, but are unknown at this time.

 Fiscal Note (IL Environmental Protection Agency)
 HB 1397 would generate between $2.5 million and $4.5 million per year for the Leaking Underground Storage Tank (LUST) Fund. This estimate is based upon the total annual fee revenue estimates of the baggage fee by the Illinois Department of Transportation ($18 million per year) and the Illinois Department of Revenue ($10 million per year).

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 HB 1397 does not create a State mandate.

 Home Rule Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 HB 1397 does not pre-empt home rule authority.
