    AN ACT concerning State government.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The General Assembly Compensation Act is amended
by changing Section 1 as follows:
 
    (25 ILCS 115/1)  (from Ch. 63, par. 14)
    Sec. 1. Each member of the General Assembly shall receive
an annual salary of $28,000 or as set by the Compensation
Review Board, whichever is greater. The following named
officers, committee chairmen and committee minority spokesmen
shall receive additional amounts per year for their services as
such officers, committee chairmen and committee minority
spokesmen respectively, as set by the Compensation Review Board
or, as follows, whichever is greater: Beginning the second
Wednesday in January 1989, the Speaker and the minority leader
of the House of Representatives and the President and the
minority leader of the Senate, $16,000 each; the majority
leader in the House of Representatives $13,500; 6 assistant
majority leaders and 5 assistant minority leaders in the
Senate, $12,000 each; 6 assistant majority leaders and 6
assistant minority leaders in the House of Representatives,
$10,500 each; 2 Deputy Majority leaders in the House of
Representatives $11,500 each; and 2 Deputy Minority leaders in
the House of Representatives, $11,500 each; the majority caucus
chairman and minority caucus chairman in the Senate, $12,000
each; and beginning the second Wednesday in January, 1989, the
majority conference chairman and the minority conference
chairman in the House of Representatives, $10,500 each;
beginning the second Wednesday in January, 1989, the chairman
and minority spokesman of each standing committee of the
Senate, except the Rules Committee, the Committee on
Committees, and the Committee on Assignment of Bills, $6,000
each; and beginning the second Wednesday in January, 1989, the
chairman and minority spokesman of each standing and select
committee of the House of Representatives, $6,000 each. A
member who serves in more than one position as an officer,
committee chairman, or committee minority spokesman shall
receive only one additional amount based on the position paying
the highest additional amount. The compensation provided for in
this Section to be paid per year to members of the General
Assembly, including the additional sums payable per year to
officers of the General Assembly shall be paid in 12 equal
monthly installments. The first such installment is payable on
January 31, 1977. All subsequent equal monthly installments are
payable on the last working day of the month. A member who has
held office any part of a month is entitled to compensation for
an entire month.
    Mileage shall be paid at the rate of 20 cents per mile
before January 9, 1985, and at the mileage allowance rate in
effect under regulations promulgated pursuant to 5 U.S.C.
5707(b)(2) beginning January 9, 1985, for the number of actual
highway miles necessarily and conveniently traveled by the most
feasible route to be present upon convening of the sessions of
the General Assembly by such member in each and every trip
during each session in going to and returning from the seat of
government, to be computed by the Comptroller. A member
traveling by public transportation for such purposes, however,
shall be paid his actual cost of that transportation instead of
on the mileage rate if his cost of public transportation
exceeds the amount to which he would be entitled on a mileage
basis. No member may be paid, whether on a mileage basis or for
actual costs of public transportation, for more than one such
trip for each week the General Assembly is actually in session.
Each member shall also receive an allowance of $36 per day for
lodging and meals while in attendance at sessions of the
General Assembly before January 9, 1985; beginning January 9,
1985, such food and lodging allowance shall be equal to the
amount per day permitted to be deducted for such expenses under
the Internal Revenue Code; however, beginning May 31, 1995, no
allowance for food and lodging while in attendance at sessions
is authorized for periods of time after the last day in May of
each calendar year, except (i) if the General Assembly is
convened in special session by either the Governor or the
presiding officers of both houses, as provided by subsection
(b) of Section 5 of Article IV of the Illinois Constitution or
(ii) if the General Assembly is convened to consider bills
vetoed, item vetoed, reduced, or returned with specific
recommendations for change by the Governor as provided in
Section 9 of Article IV of the Illinois Constitution. For
fiscal year 2011 and for session days in fiscal years 2012,
2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017, and 2018 only (i) the
allowance for lodging and meals is $111 per day and (ii)
mileage for automobile travel shall be reimbursed at a rate of
$0.39 per mile.
    Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
beginning in fiscal year 2012, travel reimbursement for General
Assembly members on non-session days shall be calculated using
the guidelines set forth by the Legislative Travel Control
Board, except that fiscal year 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016,
and 2017, and 2018 mileage reimbursement is set at a rate of
$0.39 per mile.
    If a member dies having received only a portion of the
amount payable as compensation, the unpaid balance shall be
paid to the surviving spouse of such member, or, if there be
none, to the estate of such member.
