Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Chicago School District Article of the School Code. Requires the Chairpersons of the House of Representatives' Committee on Elementary & Secondary Education and the Senate's Committee on Education to each appoint 5 members to a Special Joint Chicago Education Facilities Subcommittee. Requires the Joint Subcommittee, with the help of independent experts, to analyze past school district experience with respect to the closing or opening of schools, school repairs, school additions, school phase-outs, school consolidations, and school boundary changes; to consult widely with stakeholders about these facility issues; and to examine relevant best practices from other school systems for dealing with these issues systematically and equitably. Provides for a draft policy and a final proposed policy. Provides that there shall be a moratorium on school closings, consolidations, and phaseouts in the school district in the 2009-2010 school year, and provides that any of these actions that are subsequently appropriate shall be carried out no sooner than the end of the 2010-2011 school year. Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the contents of the bill as introduced with the following changes. Makes changes concerning the General Assembly's findings. Provides for a Special Joint Chicago Education Facilities Committee instead of a Special Joint Chicago Education Facilities Subcommittee, with members appointed by the Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate as well as additional members. Makes changes concerning expert assistance, the gathering of evidence, the committee's duties, a draft policy, hearings, and proposed law. Removes the moratorium provision. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Chicago School District Article of the School Code. Requires the establishment of a Chicago Educational Facilities Task Force in order to ensure that school facility-related decisions are made with the input of the community and reflect educationally sound and fiscally responsible criteria. Requires the task force, with the help of independent experts, to analyze past Chicago experiences and data with respect to school openings, school closings, school consolidations, school turnarounds, school phase-outs, school construction, school repairs, school modernizations, school boundary changes, and other related school facility decisions on students; consult widely with stakeholders, including public officials, about these facility issues and their related costs; and examine relevant best practices from other school systems for dealing with these issues systematically and equitably. Provides for draft recommendations, final proposed policy and legislative recommendations, and final recommendations to be submitted to the General Assembly, the Governor, and the school district. Requires the State Board of Education and the school district to provide administrative support to the task force. Effective immediately.

Governor Amendatory Veto Message
Recommends that the Chicago Educational Facilities Task Force be established within 30 days (rather than 15 days) after the effective date of the amendatory Act; that changes be made in the membership and appointing authorities; that the Governor appoint one of the appointed members as chairperson (rather than the Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate each appointing one of the appointed members as co-chairpersons); that the Task Force secure pro bono expert assistance within 30 days (rather than 15 days) after the establishment of the Task Force; and that the Task Force prepare final recommendations on or before March 30, 2010 (rather than October 30, 2009).
