Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Pension Code. Provides that it is the public policy of the State of Illinois to encourage the pension funds, and any State agency investing funds on behalf of pension funds, to promote the economy of Illinois through the use of economic opportunity investments while managing their assets to the greatest extent feasible within the bounds of financial and fiduciary prudence. Provides that each pension fund, except pension funds created under the Downstate Police and Firefighters Articles of the Code, shall submit a report to the Governor and the General Assembly by September 1 of each year that identifies the economic opportunity investments made by the fund, the primary location of the business or project, the percentage of the fund's assets in economic opportunity investments, and the actions that the fund has undertaken to increase the use of economic opportunity investments, including encouraging other investment managers to make economic opportunity investments through subcontractors. Requires certain pension funds, and any State agency investing funds on behalf of those pension funds, to make all reasonable efforts to invest a minimum of 5% of pension fund assets in economic opportunity investments. Effective immediately.
