Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Administrative Act and the Illinois Public Aid Code. Provides that the Department of Human Services shall establish reimbursement rates which build toward livable wages for front line personnel in residential and day programs serving persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including but not limited to intermediate care facilities for persons with developmental disabilities, community integrated living arrangements, developmental training programs, employment, and other residential and day programs for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities supported by State funds or funding under Title XIX of the federal Social Security Act. Provides that the Department shall increase rates and reimbursements so that direct support persons earn a base wage of not less than $15 per hour and so that other front line personnel earn a commensurate wage. Defines "front line personnel". Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Human Services)
 Fiscal Impact Supplement: The DSP rate increase to $15/hour will cost the state an estimated annual increase of $3301\1. (1) The current CILA rate model includes $10.71/hour for DSP wage rates. The proposed legislation would increase the DSP rates by 40.l %, increasing from $10.71 to $15.00. ICF/DD DSP current wage is $11.05/hour, an increase to $15 would be a 35.7% cost to the program liability. (2) The legislation does not only impact DSP, also requires commensurate rate increases across all staffing levels within the affected categories. As a result, all Community Integrated Living Arrangements (CILA) and Developmental Training (DT) staffing categories would increase by 40 .1% above current rates. Categories impacted by the proposed rate increase include DSP, Supervisors, Qualified Intellectual Disabilities Professional Course Coordinator (QIDP), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN), and registered Nurses (RN). These amounts total an estimated $330M annual increase in costs that are not included in the Governor's FY17 proposed budget.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not create a State mandate.

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

 Pension Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 5931 will not impact any public pension fund or retirement system in Illinois.

 State Debt Impact Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 5931 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)
 No fiscal or population impact on the Department.

 Housing Affordability Impact Note (Housing Development Authority)
 This bill will have no effect on the cost of constructing, purchasing, owning, or selling a single-family residence.

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

 Balanced Budget Note (Office of Management and Budget)
 This bill will have an extraordinary fiscal impact to the State of Illinois. The Governor's Office of Management and Budget estimates that this bill could potentially increase state spending for services to the developmentally disabled by $330 million. This increase in costs is not included in the Governor's FY17 proposed budget. There are no proposed revenues or offsetting budget reductions to support these increased costs.

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