Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

Statewide prioritized goals.
For fiscal year 2012 and each fiscal year thereafter, prior to the submission of the State budget, the Governor, in consultation with the appropriation committees of the General Assembly and, beginning with budgets prepared for fiscal year 2013, the commission established under this Section, shall: (i) prioritize outcomes that are most important for each State agency of the executive branch under the jurisdiction of the Governor to achieve for the next fiscal year and (ii) set goals to accomplish those outcomes according to the priority of the outcome. There must be a reasonable number of annually defined statewide goals defining State priorities for the budget. Each goal shall be further defined to facilitate success in achieving that goal. No later than July 31 of each fiscal year beginning in fiscal year 2012, the Governor shall establish a commission for the purpose of advising the Governor in setting those outcomes and goals, including the timeline for achieving those outcomes and goals. The commission shall be a well-balanced group and shall be a manageable size. The commission shall hold at least 2 in-person public meetings during each fiscal year. One meeting shall be held in the City of Chicago and one meeting shall be held in the City of Springfield. The commission may choose by a majority vote of its members to hold one virtual meeting, which is open to the public and over the Internet, in lieu of the 2 in-person public meetings required under this Section. By November 1 of each year, the commission shall submit a report to the Governor and the General Assembly setting forth recommendations with respect to the Governor's proposed outcomes and goals. The report shall be published on the Governor's Office of Management and Budget's website. In its report, the commission shall propose a percentage of the total budget to be assigned to each proposed outcome and goal. The commission shall also review existing mandated expenditures and include in its report recommendations for the termination of mandated expenditures. The General Assembly may object to the commission's report by passing a joint resolution detailing the General Assembly's objections.
In addition, each other constitutional officer of the executive branch, in consultation with the appropriation committees of the General Assembly, shall: (i) prioritize outcomes that are most important for his or her office to achieve for the next fiscal year and (ii) set goals to accomplish those outcomes according to the priority of the outcome. The Governor and each constitutional officer shall separately conduct performance analyses to determine which programs, strategies, and activities will best achieve those desired outcomes. The Governor shall recommend that appropriations be made to State agencies and officers for the next fiscal year based on the agreed upon goals and priorities. Each agency and officer may develop its own strategies for meeting those goals and shall review and analyze those strategies on a regular basis. The Governor shall also implement procedures to measure annual progress toward the State's highest priority outcomes and shall develop a statewide reporting system that compares the actual results with budgeted results. Those performance measures and results shall be posted on the State Comptroller's website, and compiled for distribution in the Comptroller's Public Accountability Report, as is currently the practice on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly.
