    AN ACT concerning State government.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The State Budget Law of the Civil Administrative
Code of Illinois is amended by changing Section 50-10 as
follows:
 
    (15 ILCS 20/50-10)  (was 15 ILCS 20/38.1)
    Sec. 50-10. Budget contents. The budget shall be submitted
by the Governor with line item and program data. The budget
shall also contain performance data presenting an estimate for
the current fiscal year, projections for the budget year, and
information for the 3 prior fiscal years comparing department
objectives with actual accomplishments, formulated according
to the various functions and activities, and, wherever the
nature of the work admits, according to the work units, for
which the respective departments, offices, and institutions of
the State government (including the elective officers in the
executive department and including the University of Illinois
and the judicial department) are responsible.
    For the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1992 and for each
fiscal year thereafter, the budget shall include the
performance measures of each department's accountability
report.
    For the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1997 and for each
fiscal year thereafter, the budget shall include one or more
line items appropriating moneys to the Department of Human
Services to fund participation in the Home-Based Support
Services Program for Adults with Mental Disabilities under the
Developmental Disability and Mental Disability Services Act by
persons described in Section 2-17 of that Act.
    For the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2019, and for each
fiscal year thereafter, the budget shall include a separate
line item request appropriating moneys to each State agency
for: (1) estimated costs for each fund under the State Prompt
Payment Act; and (2) estimated costs for each fund under
Sections 368a and 370a of the Illinois Insurance Code.
    The budget shall contain a capital development section in
which the Governor will present (1) information on the capital
projects and capital programs for which appropriations are
requested, (2) the capital spending plans, which shall document
the first and subsequent years cash requirements by fund for
the proposed bonded program, and (3) a statement that shall
identify by year the principal and interest costs until
retirement of the State's general obligation debt. In addition,
the principal and interest costs of the budget year program
shall be presented separately, to indicate the marginal cost of
principal and interest payments necessary to retire the
additional bonds needed to finance the budget year's capital
program. In 2004 only, the capital development section of the
State budget shall be submitted by the Governor not later than
the fourth Tuesday of March (March 23, 2004).
    The budget shall contain a section indicating whether there
is a projected budget surplus or a projected budget deficit for
general funds in the current fiscal year, or whether the
current fiscal year's general funds budget is projected to be
balanced, based on estimates prepared by the Governor's Office
of Management and Budget using actual figures available on the
date the budget is submitted. That section shall present this
information in both a numerical table format and by way of a
narrative description, and shall include information for the
proposed upcoming fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and the
2 years prior to the current fiscal year. These estimates must
specifically and separately identify any non-recurring
revenues, including, but not limited to, borrowed money, money
derived by borrowing or transferring from other funds, or any
non-operating financial source. None of these specifically and
separately identified non-recurring revenues may include any
revenue that cannot be realized without a change to law.  The
table shall show accounts payable at the end of each fiscal
year in a manner that specifically and separately identifies
any general funds liabilities accrued during the current and
prior fiscal years that may be paid from future fiscal years'
appropriations, including, but not limited to, costs that may
be paid beyond the end of the lapse period as set forth in
Section 25 of the State Finance Act and costs incurred by the

Assembly Retirement System, State Employees' Retirement System
of Illinois, State Universities Retirement System, Teachers'
Retirement System of the State of Illinois, and Judges

    The budget submitted by the Governor shall contain, in
addition, in a separate book, a tabulation of all position and
employment titles in each such department, office, and
institution, the number of each, and the salaries for each,
formulated according to divisions, bureaus, sections, offices,
departments, boards, and similar subdivisions, which shall
correspond as nearly as practicable to the functions and
activities for which the department, office, or institution is
responsible.
    Together with the budget, the Governor shall transmit the
estimates of receipts and expenditures, as received by the
Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget, of
the elective officers in the executive and judicial departments
and of the University of Illinois.
    An applicable appropriations committee of each chamber of
the General Assembly, for fiscal year 2012 and thereafter, must
review individual line item appropriations and the total budget
for each State agency, as defined in the Illinois State
Auditing Act.

    Sec. 13.2. Transfers among line item appropriations.
    (a) Transfers among line item appropriations from the same

made in the manner provided in this Section when the balance
remaining in one or more such line item appropriations is

    (a-2) Except as otherwise provided in this Section,
transfers may be made only among the objects of expenditure
enumerated in this Section, except that no funds may be
transferred from any appropriation for personal services, from
any appropriation for State contributions to the State
Employees' Retirement System, from any separate appropriation
for employee retirement contributions paid by the employer, nor
from any appropriation for State contribution for employee
group insurance. During State fiscal year 2005, an agency may
transfer amounts among its appropriations within the same

contributions paid by employer, and State Contributions to
retirement systems; notwithstanding and in addition to the

Attorneys Appellate Prosecutor may transfer amounts among its
respective appropriations contained in operational line items

to, the transfers authorized in subsection (c) of this Section,
these transfers may be made in an amount not to exceed 4% of
the aggregate amount appropriated to the State's Attorneys
Appellate Prosecutor within the same treasury fund.
    (a-3) Further, if an agency receives a separate
appropriation for employee retirement contributions paid by
the employer, any transfer by that agency into an appropriation
for personal services must be accompanied by a corresponding
transfer into the appropriation for employee retirement
contributions paid by the employer, in an amount sufficient to
meet the employer share of the employee contributions required
to be remitted to the retirement system.
    (a-4) Long-Term Care Rebalancing. The Governor may
designate amounts set aside for institutional services
appropriated from the General Revenue Fund or any other State

in or at risk of being in institutional care to transition to
community-based settings, including the financial data needed
to prove the need for the transfer of funds. The total amounts
transferred shall not exceed 4% in total of the amounts

or invoice for goods or services furnished to the State, as
defined in Section 1, properly approved in accordance with
rules promulgated under Section 3-3, the State official or
agency shall pay interest to the vendor in accordance with the
following:
        (1) Any bill, except a bill submitted under Article V
    of the Illinois Public Aid Code and except as provided
    under paragraph (1.05) of this Section, approved for
    payment under this Section must be paid or the payment
    issued to the payee within 60 days of receipt of a proper
    bill or invoice. If payment is not issued to the payee
    within this 60-day period, an interest penalty of 1.0% of
    any amount approved and unpaid shall be added for each
    month or fraction thereof after the end of this 60-day
    period, until final payment is made. Any bill, except a
    bill for pharmacy or nursing facility services or goods,
    and except as provided under paragraph (1.05) of this
    Section, submitted under Article V of the Illinois Public
    Aid Code approved for payment under this Section must be
    paid or the payment issued to the payee within 60 days
    after receipt of a proper bill or invoice, and, if payment
    is not issued to the payee within this 60-day period, an
    interest penalty of 2.0% of any amount approved and unpaid
    shall be added for each month or fraction thereof after the
    end of this 60-day period, until final payment is made. Any
    bill for pharmacy or nursing facility services or goods
    submitted under Article V of the Illinois Public Aid Code,
    except as provided under paragraph (1.05) of this Section,
    and approved for payment under this Section must be paid or
    the payment issued to the payee within 60 days of receipt
    of a proper bill or invoice. If payment is not issued to
    the payee within this 60-day period, an interest penalty of
    1.0% of any amount approved and unpaid shall be added for
    each month or fraction thereof after the end of this 60-day
    period, until final payment is made.
        (1.05) For State fiscal year 2012 and future fiscal
    years, any bill approved for payment under this Section
    must be paid or the payment issued to the payee within 90
    days of receipt of a proper bill or invoice. If payment is

    day, after the end of this 90-day period, until final
    payment is made.
        (1.1) A State agency shall review in a timely manner
    each bill or invoice after its receipt. If the State agency

    making it unable to process the payment request, the agency

    possible after discovering the defect pursuant to rules
    promulgated under Section 3-3; provided, however, that the
    notice for construction related bills or invoices must be
    given not later than 30 days after the bill or invoice was
    first submitted. The notice shall identify the defect and
    any additional information necessary to correct the
    defect. If one or more items on a construction related bill
    or invoice are disapproved, but not the entire bill or
    invoice, then the portion that is not disapproved shall be
    paid.
        (2) Where a State official or agency is late in payment
    of a vendor's bill or invoice properly approved in
    accordance with this Act, and different late payment terms
    are not reduced to writing as a contractual agreement, the
    State official or agency shall automatically pay interest
    penalties required by this Section amounting to $50 or more
    to the appropriate vendor. Each agency shall be responsible
    for determining whether an interest penalty is owed and for
    paying the interest to the vendor. Except as provided in
    paragraph (4), an individual interest payment amounting to
    $5 or less shall not be paid by the State. Interest due to
    a vendor that amounts to greater than $5 and less than $50
    shall not be paid but shall be accrued until all interest
    due the vendor for all similar warrants exceeds $50, at
    which time the accrued interest shall be payable and
    interest will begin accruing again, except that interest
    accrued as of the end of the fiscal year that does not
    exceed $50 shall be payable at that time. In the event an
    individual has paid a vendor for services in advance, the
    provisions of this Section shall apply until payment is
    made to that individual.
        (3) The provisions of Public Act 96-1501 reducing the
    interest rate on pharmacy claims under Article V of the
    Illinois Public Aid Code to 1.0% per month shall apply to

audit and the Comptroller has held or is holding for review a
related contract or vouchers for payment of goods or services
