10 ILCS 5/1A-8from Ch. 46, par. 1A-8
10 ILCS 5/9-10from Ch. 46, par. 9-10
25 ILCS 115/4from Ch. 63, par. 15.1
25 ILCS 130/9-2.5

Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Election Code and the School Code. Changes the general primary election from the third Tuesday in March to the first Tuesday in February in even-numbered years. Gives the State Board of Elections the power to give effect to the directions of an established political party's national committee or State central committee with respect to the certification of the party's Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates selected at the party's national nominating convention (now, only with respect to the convention in 2004). Changes the reporting dates for a political committee's semi-annual reports of campaign contributions and expenditures to July 20th and January 20th (now, July 31st and January 31st). Eliminates, with respect to the general primary election, the report of campaign contributions received by a political committee as of 30 days before the election. In even-numbered years, requires that the 2-business day reporting of a political committee's receipt of contributions in excess of $500 during the 30 days before the election shall apply, with respect to the general primary election, to such contributions received beginning January 1 and prior to the general primary. Makes other changes. Amends the General Assembly Compensation Act and the Legislative Commission Reorganization Act of 1984 to start the prohibition against State-paid newsletters and brochures for General Assembly members on December 15 (now, February 1) before a general primary election. Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note (State Board of Elections)
 This legislation would require items currently listed in the State Board of Elections' FY08 Budget request to be moved, by a supplemental appropriation, to the FY08 Budget with the continuing appropriation in FY08. It would also require the hiring of additional personnel in the IT Department. Printing (petition packets) = $4,500.00 & Personnel (IT) = $159,900.00. Total $164,400.00.
