Balanced Budget Note (Office of Management and Budget)
The Balanced Budget Note Act does not apply to Senate Bill 2122 as it is not a supplemental appropriation that increases or decreases appropriations. Under the Act, a balanced budget note must be prepared only for bills that change a general funds appropriation for the fiscal year in
which the new bill is enacted.
SB 2122, as engrossed, amends the Public Community College Act in a way that does not impact any pension system.
State Debt Impact Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
SB 2122, as engrossed, 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.
Fiscal Note (Illinois Community College Board)
In the opinion of the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB), Senate Bill 2122 does not have a fiscal impact on the Illinois Community College Board or Illinois Community College System. The legislation is subject to appropriation.
