Short description: 
TORT IMMUNITY-COMPUTERS                                                    

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the Local Government Computer Immunity Act and amends the      
   Court of Claims Act, the State Lawsuit Immunity  Act,  and  the  Local      
   Governmental  and  Governmental Employees Tort Immunity Act.  Provides      
   that no cause of action,  including,  without  limitation,  any  civil      
   action  or action for declaratory or injunctive relief, may be brought      
   against the State or any of its agencies, officers, or  employees   or      
   against  a  local public entity or public employee on the basis that a      
   computer  or  other  information  system  produced,   calculated,   or      
   generated  an  incorrect  date,  regardless of the cause of the error.      
   Provides that the Court of Claims shall not have jurisdiction in  such      
   an action. Provides that any contract entered into by or on behalf  of      
   the  State  or  a  local  public  entity must include a provision that      
   provides immunity for any breach of contract  that  is  caused  by  an      
   incorrect  date being produced, calculated, or generated by a computer      
   or other information system that is owned or operated by the State  or      
   the  local  public  entity,  regardless  of  the  cause  of the error.      
   Provides that any contract subject to these provisions that is entered      
   into on or after the effective date of this Act has the  legal  effect      
   of  including  the  immunity  required  by  these  provisions, and any      
   provision of the contract which is in conflict with  these  provisions      
   is void.                                                                    
          FISCAL NOTE (Administrative Office of Ill. Courts)                   
          HB293 would not have a fiscal impact on the Judicial Branch.         
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Commerce and Community Affairs)                
          HB293 will have a fiscal impact on DCCA and units of local           
          government, but the cost is difficult to determine.
