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
