Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the School Code.  Beginning with fiscal year 1998,  limits      
   the  amount  of total IDEA Part B discretionary funds available to the      
   State Board of Education and the manner in which those federal  moneys      
   may be used.  Effective immediately.                                        
          STATE DEBT IMPACT NOTE, ENGROSSED                                    
          SB1072, engrossed, would not impact the level of State debt.         
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE (State Bd. of Ed.)                        
          In FY98 the proposed federal increase is up by $35 million, for      
          a total grant award of about $138 million. This would mean a         
          significant and unprecedented increase for school districts          
          even without the proposed formula.                                   
          FISCAL NOTE (State Bd. of Ed.)                                       
          No change from SBE mandates note.                                    
        GOVERNOR'S AMENDATORY VETO MESSAGE                                     
        Recommends replacing a provision that, for FY98 and subsequent         
   fiscal years, limits the aggregate IDEA Part B discretionary funds          
   received by the State Board of Education in each such fiscal year to        
   the amount of FY97 expenditures made by the Board from those discre-        
   tionary funds with a provision limiting the Board's IDEA Part B dis-        
   cretionary funds for post-1997 fiscal years to the amount of IDEA Part      
   B discretionary funds available to the Board for FY97, excluding            
   carryover funds from prior fiscal years, increased by 3% for FY98 and       
   by an additional 3% for each succeeding fiscal year.
