Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Illinois Generic Drug Pricing Fairness Act. Provides that a manufacturer or wholesale drug distributor shall not engage in price gouging in the sale of an essential off-patent or generic drug. Provides that the Director of Healthcare and Family Services or Director of Central Management Services may notify the Attorney General of any increase in the price of any essential off-patent or generic drug under the Medical Assistance Program under the Illinois Public Aid Code or a State health plan, respectively, that amounts to price gouging. Provides that whenever the Attorney General has reason to believe that a manufacturer or wholesale drug distributor of an essential off-patent or generic drug has violated the Act, the Attorney General shall send a notice to the manufacturer or wholesale drug distributor requesting a specified statement. Provides that within 45 days after receipt of the request, the manufacturer or wholesale drug distributor shall submit the statement to the Attorney General. Provides that to accomplish the objectives and carry out the duties prescribed in the Act, the Attorney General may issue subpoenas or examine under oath any person to determine whether a manufacturer or wholesale drug distributor has violated the Act. Provides that upon petition of the Attorney General, a circuit court may issue specified orders against violations of the Act. Contains provisions concerning the disclosure of financial information provided by a manufacturer or wholesale drug distributor to the Attorney General. Effective January 1, 2019.

 Fiscal Note (Office of the Attorney General)
 HB 4900 would not have a significant fiscal impact on the Office of the Attorney General as the work could be covered by an existing bureau within the office.

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

 Judicial Note (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 HB 4900 would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.

 Pension Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 4900 will not impact any public pension fund or retirement system in Illinois.

 State Debt Impact Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 4900 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.

 Balanced Budget Note (Office of Management and Budget)
 Please be advised that the Balanced Budget Note Act does not apply to House Bill 4900 as it is not a supplemental appropriation that increases or decreases appropriations. Under the Act, a balanced budget note must be prepared only for bills that change a general funds appropriation for the fiscal year in which the new bill is enacted.

 Correctional Note (Dept of Corrections)
 This bill will have no corrections population or fiscal impact on the Department of Corrections.
