Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
20 ILCS 415/8b.21 new


Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Personnel Code. Provides that State agencies, when hiring for internships and student assistant positions, shall give preference to a qualified applicant who is, or has been, a dependent child in foster care, a homeless youth, or a formerly incarcerated youth. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
20 ILCS 415/8b.21 new
Adds reference to:
New Act

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Creates the State Agency Student Worker Opportunity Act. Provides that, whenever a State agency has a job opening for an intern or a student worker, that State agency shall notify the Department of Human Services, the Department of Juvenile Justice, and the Department of Children and Family Services. Requires the Department of Human Services, the Department of Juvenile Justice, and the Department of Children and Family Services to take steps to notify qualified applicants of the job opening. Provides that the term "qualified applicant" means an individual who: (1) is 21 years of age or younger; (2) is qualified for the internship or student worker position; and (3) is or has been a dependent child in foster care, a homeless youth, or a formerly incarcerated youth. Requires State agencies to maintain certain records.

 Fiscal Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Children & Family Services)
 The Department estimates that House Bill 2987 (H-AM 1) will not have any significant fiscal impact on the Department of Children and Family Services.

 Fiscal Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Dept of Juvenile Justice)
 If passed, HB 2987 (H-AM 1) would mandate that state agencies notify the Department of Juvenile Justice regarding job openings for an intern or a student worker. The Department must notify the qualified applicants and maintain records detailing the number of applicants for the aforementioned positions. The Department has the capability to track youth currently on Aftercare. However, this legislation poses many issues for youth no longer in the Department's custody. Because the implementation would be administrative in nature, the legislation has a minimal, if any, fiscal impact on the Department but would pose administrative burden on the Department of Juvenile Justice.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of House Amendment 1. Replaces the term "formerly incarcerated youth" with "court-involved youth". Provides that the term "court-involved youth" means an individual who was committed to the custody of the Department of Juvenile Justice or a county juvenile detention center and has been released from that facility or discharged from custody. Removes provisions concerning recordkeeping. Makes other changes.
