(30 ILCS 590/3) (from Ch. 127, par. 3003)
    Sec. 3. The Department may authorize a State agency to contract for the provision of child care services for its employees. The Department may, in accordance with established rules, allow day care centers to operate in State-owned or leased facilities. Such facilities shall be primarily for use by State employees but use by non-employees may be allowed.
    Where a State agency enters into a contract to construct, acquire or lease all or a substantial portion of a building, in which more than 50 persons shall be employed, other than a renewal of an existing lease, after July 1, 1990, and where a need has been demonstrated, according to Section 4 of this Act, on-site child care services shall be provided for State employees.
    The Department shall implement this Act and shall promulgate all rules and regulations necessary for this purpose. By April 1, 1991, the Department shall propose rules setting forth the standards and criteria, including need and feasibility, for determining if on-site child care services shall be provided. The Department shall consult with the Department of Children and Family Services in defining standards for child care service centers established pursuant to this Act to ensure compliance with the Child Care Act of 1969. The Department shall establish a schedule of fees that shall be charged to employees of State agencies who may obtain child care services under this Act. Such schedule shall be established so that charges for service are based on the actual cost of care. Except as otherwise provided by law for employees who may qualify for public assistance or social services due to indigency or family circumstance, each employee obtaining child care services under this Act shall be responsible for full payment of such charges. The Department shall report, on or before December 31 of each year, to the Governor and the members of the General Assembly, on the feasibility and implementation of a plan for the provision of comprehensive child care services.
