(25 ILCS 80/20) (from Ch. 63, par. 42.93-20)
    Sec. 20. Note Contents. Balanced Budget Notes shall be factual in nature, concise and shall include a brief explanation of the nature of the measure and a reliable estimate of the measure's anticipated effect (in dollars) on the State budget for that fiscal year. The Note shall include both the immediate effect and, if determinable or reasonably foreseeable, the long-range effect of the measure. A brief summary or work sheet of computations used in arriving at figures contained in the Balanced Budget Note shall be included. Each Balanced Budget Note shall include a discussion of the proposed reduction in other appropriations or increases in State revenue that would allow the measure to be adopted without adversely affecting the State budget for that fiscal year.
    If a supplemental appropriation bill appropriates money from a bond-financed fund or for the purpose of allowing the recipient agency to enter into an installment-purchase or lease-purchase agreement having a total principal value in excess of $250,000 or having a term in excess of five years, the Balanced Budget Note shall also include an estimated annual schedule of any principal and interest payments related to such appropriations.
