Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Urban Weatherization Initiative Act. Provides that the efforts of the Urban Weatherization Initiative shall be coordinated with federal weatherization programs. Requires the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity to administer the Initiative so as to qualify for federal grant or matching programs. Provides the salary of employees hired under the Initiative in accordance with the hourly wages associated with the federal prevailing wage rates for weatherization workers. Provides that the maximum per unit expenditure is limited to $10,000 (currently $6,500) and that a grant recipient may not be awarded grants totaling more than $2,000,000 (currently $500,000) per fiscal year. Provides that 2 voting members of the Weatherization Initiative Board must have experience in residential weatherization or energy efficiency and that one voting member must have experience in workforce development. Requires the Board's annual report to be filed by May 31 (instead of December 31).

 Land Conveyance Appraisal Note (Dept. of Transportation)
 No land conveyances are included in this legislation, therefore, there are no appraisals to be filed.

 Judicial Note (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 This bill would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.

 Pension Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 5785 will not impact any public pension fund or retirement system in Illinois.

 State Debt Impact Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 5785 would not change the amount of authorization for any type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and, therefore, would not affect the level of State indebtedness.

 Correctional Note (Dept of Corrections)
 This bill has no fiscal or population impact on the Department of Corrections.

 Balanced Budget Note (Office of Management and Budget)
 House Bill 5785 will have a negative fiscal impact as it relates to bond sales and additional debt service. It will open up the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity to the risk of higher expenditures from the Build Illinois Bond Fund. This would require the Governor's Office of Management and Budget to sell more bonds, which would require additional debt service. This additional debt service will have a negative impact on the General Revenue Fund.

 Housing Affordability Impact Note (Housing Development Authority)
 This bill will have no effect to the homeowner on the cost of owning a single-family residence. However, the federal prevailing wage requirement, the increase in maximum grant award will cause fewer homes to be assisted under these programs.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This legislation does create a State mandate.

 Home Rule Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This legislation does not pre-empt home authority.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 Assuming a capital re-appropriation, use of Urban Weatherization Initiative (UWI) funding would require the sale of Build Illinois Bonds. This would increase the debt service of the State of Illinois and result in a negative impact on GRF funds.

Governor Amendatory Veto Message
Recommends amending the Urban Weatherization Initiative Act and the Energy Assistance Act by: inserting language providing that works financed or funded in whole or in part with grants awarded under those Acts shall not be considered public works for purposes of the Prevailing Wage Act; deleting language providing that employees hired under the Urban Weatherization Initiative shall be paid in accordance with the hourly wages associated with the federal prevailing wage rates for weatherization workers; and deleting language providing that individuals performing weatherization work under the weatherization program shall be paid in accordance with the hourly wages associated with the federal prevailing wage rates for such weatherization classifications as determined by the U.S. Department of Labor, until specifically superseded by additional standards and regulations.
