 1        AN ACT concerning compensation.

 2        Be  it  enacted  by  the People of the State of Illinois,
 3    represented in the General Assembly:

 4        Section 1. Short title. This Act  may  be  cited  as  the
 5    General Assembly Furlough Act.

 6        Section  5.  Intent.  It  is  the  intent  of the General
 7    Assembly that the negative impact of State budget  shortfalls
 8    be  partially  absorbed  by those persons in State government
 9    who are in leadership positions in order to balance the  cuts
10    of the pay of other State employees imposed by the Governor.

11        Section  10.  Salary reduction. Notwithstanding any other
12    provision of law to the contrary, each member of the  General
13    Assembly is subject to a one-time, temporary salary reduction
14    for  State  fiscal  year  2002  only. The one-time, temporary
15    salary reduction shall be equal to 1 working-day's salary for
16    each member. The reduction shall be reflected in the paycheck
17    received for the first pay period in June, 2002.
18        The salary  reduction  shall  not  adversely  impact  the
19    person's pension, insurance, or other employee benefits.  The
20    State  shall  make  State  contributions  to Social Security,
21    State contributions  to  the  pension  system,  and  employee
22    contributions  to  the  pension  system based on the person's
23    unreduced salary.

24        Section 99. Effective date. This Act  takes  effect  upon
25    becoming law.
