Short description: 
PROCUREMENT CODE-CONSTRUCTION                                              

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the  Illinois  Procurement  Code.   Provides  that  to  be      
   considered  a  responsible  bidder  on  a  construction  contract  for      
   purposes  of  the Code, a bidder must comply with certain requirements      
   and must present satisfactory  evidence  of  that  compliance  to  the      
   Capital  Development  Board  or other appropriate construction agency.      
   The requirements include compliance with laws concerning the  bidder's      
   entitlement  to  conduct  business  in  Illinois,  compliance with the      
   Prevailing  Wage  Act,  compliance  with  federal  "Equal   Employment      
   Opportunities"  provisions,  having  certain  insurance  coverage, and      
   participation  in  federally  approved  apprenticeship  and   training      
          FISCAL NOTE (Capital Development Board)                              
          This is estimated to raise the cost of contracts by as much          
          as 5% to cover the costs incurred by contractors to develop          
          and implement such a program. CDB awards at least $200 million       
          in contracts in any given year. Increasing this by 5% would          
          cause an additional $10 million to be added to project appro-        
          STATE MANDATES NOTE (Dept. of Commerce and Community Affairs)        
          Does not create a State mandate.
