1 the Governor may suggest rules to the General Assembly by
2 filing them with the Clerk of the House and Secretary of the
3 Senate and by requesting that the General Assembly authorize
4 such rulemaking by law, enact those suggested rules into law,
5 or take any other appropriate action in the General Assembly's
6 discretion. Nothing contained in this Act shall be interpreted
7 to grant rulemaking authority under any other Illinois statute
8 where such authority is not otherwise explicitly given. For the
9 purposes of this Act, "rules" is given the meaning contained in
10 Section 1-70 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act, and
11 "agency" and "agency head" are given the meanings contained in
12 Sections 1-20 and 1-25 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure
13 Act to the extent that such definitions apply to agencies or
14 agency heads under the jurisdiction of the Governor.".
