Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Living Wage Act. Provides that the State, its agencies, and political subdivisions shall ensure that new contracts and subcontracts include a provision specifying that, as a condition of payment of the contract, the minimum wage to be paid to workers in performance of the contract or subcontract shall be at least $16.36 per hour for new contracts created after January 1, 2018. Provides that for every year thereafter, the Department of Labor shall adjust the amount of the hourly minimum wage by the annual percentage increase in the consumer price index. Sets forth provisions concerning enforcement and penalties. Creates a private right of action to enforce the provisions of the Act. Provides for debarment of certain contractors or subcontractors for violation of the Act. Contains severability provisions. Effective January 1, 2018.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
30 ILCS 540/3-2

Replaces everything after the enacting clause with provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes: Removes references to "political subdivisions" of the State. Adds a definition of "State". Effective January 1, 2018.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Central Management Services)
 The Department of Central Management Services cannot quantify a financial impact to the Agency at this time. However, after reviewing a sample of the FY16 contractual wage data from CMS' State Use Vendors, the data preliminarily suggests that there could be a significant increase in vendor labor costs, potentially up to a $5.5 million annual increase. When vendor prices increase, this is typically passed along to the customers, in this case the State of Illinois.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Corrects a grammatical error.
