Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Creates the State Entities Single-Use Plastic Reporting Act. Requires, beginning July 1, 2024, each State agency to (i) track the purchase of single-use plastics on behalf of the State agency that do not require procurement contracts for one year, (ii) establish goals on reducing single-use plastic purchases based on the information obtained from the purchase tracking, and (iii) submit a report of its findings to the Governor and the General Assembly on or before October 1, 2025. Defines terms. Amends the Illinois Procurement Code. In a provision regarding environmentally preferable procurement: Removes language providing that if contracting for an environmentally preferable supply or service would impose an undue economic or practical hardship on the contracting State agency, or if an environmentally preferable supply or service cannot be used to meet the requirements of the State agency, then the State agency need not contract for an environmentally preferable supply or service. Provides instead that when a State agency is to award a contract to the lowest responsible bidder, an otherwise qualified bidder who will fulfill the contract through the use of compostable foodware or recyclable foodware may be given preference over other bidders unable to do so, as long as the bid is not more than 5% greater than the cost of products that are single-use plastic disposable foodware.
