FIRE PROTECT DIST-GRANTS
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the State Finance Act and the Fire Protection District
Act. Creates the Illinois Fire Distribution Fund. Requires fire pro-
tection districts to annually report to the Office of the State Fire
Marshal the amount of funds the district realized from the tax levies
during the preceding calendar year. Requires the Office of the State
Fire Marshal to make grants from the Fund to fire protection dis-
tricts. Provides that the amount of the grant must be equal to the
proportion of the total distribution from the Fund that is equal to
the district's proportion of the total amount of funds realized
statewide from the tax levies. Effective immediately.
SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Further amends the Fire Protection District Act. Provides that
grants made out of the Illinois Fire Distribution Fund by the State
Fire Marshal are subject to appropriations.
FISCAL NOTE (State Fire Marshal)
SB805 will have little impact on the Office of State Fire
Marshal; distribution of funds could easily be accomplished
using an Excel or Lotus spreadsheet.
FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 3 (State Fire Marshal)
Same as previous note.
HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 3.
Further amends the Fire Protection District Act. Requires the
State Comptroller and the State Treasurer to transfer an amount, not
to exceed $20,000,000, equal to the amount appropriated by the General
Assembly for grants to fire protection districts under this amendatory
Act from the General Revenue Fund to the Illinois Fire Distribution
Fund each year (now, the State Comptroller and State Treasurer must
transfer $20,000,000 from GRF to the Illinois Fire Distribution Fund
each year). Requires the State Fire Marshal to make grants out of the
Illinois Fire Distribution Fund to fire protection districts in an
amount not to exceed the amount transferred to the Fund each year.
