Synopsis As Introduced
Proposes to amend the Legislature, Executive, and Finance Articles of the Illinois Constitution. Amends the Finance Article to provide that within 30 days of the enactment of the State budget for a fiscal year, the Auditor General must certify whether the enacted budget will be balanced with expenses not exceeding funds estimated by the General Assembly to be available during that year. Provides that the Comptroller may find at any time during the fiscal year that the State budget has become unbalanced and so report to the Auditor General, which shall have 10 days to respond to this report. Provides that, if the Auditor General certifies that the budget is not balanced or agrees with the Comptroller's finding that the State budget has become unbalanced, then (i) the Comptroller shall stop all payments (other than payments affecting the public safety of the State, payments mandated by a court of law, and payments mandated by the federal government) and stop all payments for the salaries of General Assembly members and the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, Comptroller, and Treasurer and (ii) a special session of the General Assembly shall be convened within 10 days to enact a new State budget. Provides that, upon certification that the new budget will be balanced, the Comptroller will be allowed to resume payments. Makes conforming amendments to the Legislature and Executive Articles. Effective upon being declared adopted.
