    AN ACT concerning education.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The Behavioral Health Workforce Education
Center Task Force Act is amended by changing Section 5 as
follows:
 
    (110 ILCS 165/5)
    Sec. 5. Behavioral Health Workforce Education Center Task
Force.
    (a) The Behavioral Health Education Center Task Force is
created.
    (b) The Task Force shall be composed of the following
members:
        (1) the Executive Director of the Board of Higher
    Education, or his or her designee;
        (2) a representative of Southern Illinois University
    at Carbondale, appointed by the chancellor of Southern
    Illinois University at Carbondale;
        (3) a representative of Southern Illinois University
    at Edwardsville, appointed by the chancellor of Southern
    Illinois University at Edwardsville;
        (4) a representative of Southern Illinois University
    School of Medicine, appointed by the President of Southern
    Illinois University;
        (5) a representative of the University of Illinois at
    Urbana-Champaign, appointed by the chancellor of the
    University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; :
        (6) a representative of the University of Illinois at
    Chicago, appointed by the chancellor of the University of
    Illinois at Chicago;
        (7) a representative of the University of Illinois at
    Springfield, appointed by the chancellor of the University
    of Illinois at Springfield;
        (8) a representative of the University of Illinois
    School of Medicine, appointed by the President of the
    University of Illinois;
        (9) a representative of the University of Illinois at
    Chicago Hospital & Health Sciences System (UI Health),
    appointed by the Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs of the
    University of Illinois at Chicago;
        (10) a representative of the Division of Mental Health
    of the Department of Human Services, appointed by the
    Secretary of Human Services;
        (11) 2 representatives of a statewide organization
    representing community behavioral healthcare, appointed by
    the President of Southern Illinois University from
    nominations made by the statewide organization; and
        (12) one representative from a hospital located in a
    municipality with more than 1,000,000 inhabitants that
    principally provides services to children.
    (c) The Task Force shall meet to organize and select a
chairperson from the non-governmental members of the Task Force
upon appointment of a majority of the members. The chairperson
shall be elected by a majority vote of the members of the Task
Force.
    (d) The Task Force may consult with any persons or entities
it deems necessary to carry out its purposes.
    (e) The members of the Task Force shall receive no
compensation for serving as members of the Task Force.
    (f) The Task Force shall study the concepts presented in
House Bill 5111, as introduced, of the 100th General Assembly.
Additionally, the Task Force shall consider the fiscal means by
which the General Assembly might most effectively fund
implementation of the concepts presented in House Bill 5111, as
introduced, of the 100th General Assembly. The Task Force must
recognize that the behavioral health workforce is comprised of
a broad range of professions providing prevention, treatment,
and rehabilitation services for mental health conditions and
substance use disorders. To address workforce capacity issues
that impact access to care, the Task Force must engage in
extensive planning and data collection. Because there is no
central data repository that exists for Illinois' behavioral
health workforce, the Task Force must identify a data set,
which is a foundational step to analyzing and providing
recommendations to the concepts presented in House Bill 5111,
as introduced, of the 100th General Assembly.
    (g) The Task Force shall submit its findings and
recommendations to the General Assembly on or before December
31, 2019 September 28th, 2018. The report to the General
Assembly shall be filed with the Clerk of the House of
Representatives and the Secretary of the Senate in electronic
form only, in the manner that the Clerk and the Secretary shall
direct.
    (h) The Board of Higher Education shall provide technical
support and administrative assistance and support to the Task
Force and shall be responsible for administering its operations
and ensuring that the requirements of this Act are met.
