 5    Administrative  Code  of  Illinois  is  amended  by  changing
 6    Section 50-5 as follows:

 7        (15 ILCS 20/50-5) (was 15 ILCS 20/38)
 8        Sec. 50-5.  Governor to submit State budget. The Governor
 9    shall, as soon as possible  and  not  later  than  the  third
10    Wednesday  in February of each year beginning in 1998, submit
11    a State budget, embracing therein the amounts recommended  by
12    the   Governor   to   be   appropriated   to  the  respective
13    departments, offices, and institutions,  and  for  all  other
14    public  purposes,  the  estimated revenues from taxation, the
15    estimated revenues from sources other than taxation,  and  an
16    estimate  of  the  amount  required to be raised by taxation.
17    The amounts recommended by the Governor for appropriation  to
18    the respective departments, offices and institutions shall be
19    formulated  according to the various functions and activities
20    for which the respective department, office or institution of
21    the State government (including the elective officers in  the
22    executive department and including the University of Illinois
23    and  the  judicial  department)  is  responsible. The amounts
24    relating to particular  functions  and  activities  shall  be
25    further    formulated   in   accordance   with   the   object
26    classification specified in Section 13 of the  State  Finance
27    Act.   State  budgets  submitted  for  fiscal  years 2007 and
28    thereafter must be prepared using  the  performance  measures
29    developed under Section 6.5 of the Bureau of the Budget Act.
30        The  Governor  shall  not  propose  expenditures  and the
31    General Assembly shall not enact appropriations  that  exceed

 1    the  resources estimated to be available, as provided in this
 2    Section.
 3        For the purposes of Article VIII, Section 2 of  the  1970
 4    Illinois  Constitution,  the  State  budget for the following
 5    funds  shall  be  prepared  on  the  basis  of  revenue   and
 6    expenditure  measurement  concepts  that  are in concert with
 7    generally accepted accounting principles for governments:
 8             (1)  General Revenue Fund.
 9             (2)  Common School Fund.
10             (3)  Educational Assistance Fund.
11             (4)  Road Fund.
12             (5)  Motor Fuel Tax Fund.
13             (6)  Agricultural Premium Fund.
14        These funds shall be known as the "budgeted funds".   The
15    revenue  estimates  used in the State budget for the budgeted
16    funds shall include the  estimated  beginning  fund  balance,
17    plus  revenues  estimated  to be received during the budgeted
18    year, plus the estimated receipts due the State as of June 30
19    of the budgeted year that are expected to be collected during
20    the lapse period  following  the  budgeted  year,  minus  the
21    receipts  collected during the first 2 months of the budgeted
22    year that became due to the State  in  the  year  before  the
23    budgeted year.  Revenues shall also include estimated federal
24    reimbursements  associated with the recognition of Section 25
25    of the State Finance Act liabilities.  For any budgeted  fund
26    for  which  current  year  revenues are anticipated to exceed
27    expenditures,  the  surplus  shall  be  considered  to  be  a
28    resource available for expenditure  in  the  budgeted  fiscal
29    year.
30        Expenditure  estimates for the budgeted funds included in
31    the State budget shall include the costs to  be  incurred  by
32    the  State  for  the  budgeted  year,  to be paid in the next
33    fiscal year, excluding costs paid in the budgeted year  which
34    were  carried  over from the prior year, where the payment is
HB5937 Engrossed            -3-               LRB9214555JSpcA
 1    authorized by Section 25 of the State Finance Act.   For  any
 2    budgeted  fund  for which expenditures are expected to exceed
 3    revenues in the current fiscal year,  the  deficit  shall  be
 4    considered as a use of funds in the budgeted fiscal year.
 5        Revenues  and  expenditures  shall also include transfers
 6    between funds that are based on revenues  received  or  costs
 7    incurred during the budget year.
 8        By  March  15  of  each  year,  the  Economic  and Fiscal
 9    Commission shall prepare revenue and fund transfer  estimates
10    in  accordance  with  the  requirements  of  this Section and
11    report those  estimates  to  the  General  Assembly  and  the
12    Governor.
13        For all funds other than the budgeted funds, the proposed
14    expenditures shall not exceed funds estimated to be available
15    for  the  fiscal  year as shown in the budget.  Appropriation
16    for a fiscal year shall not exceed  funds  estimated  by  the
17    General Assembly to be available during that year.

23    performance measures for State programs and agencies.
24        (a)  The   General   Assembly   finds   that  the  public
25    accountability of State agency programs will be enhanced by:

15    presenting   State   budgets   for   fiscal  years  2007  and
16    thereafter.  The performance  measures  shall  be  integrated
17    with the budget so that expenditures and other program inputs
18    can   be   associated  with  program  goals  and  performance
19    measures.
20        (c)  The Bureau shall continue the performance management
21    practices being conducted by the Office of  the  Governor  on

23    are not limited to:
24             (1)  the development of mission  statements,  goals,
25        and objectives for State agencies and programs;
26             (2)  the    evaluation    of    the    results   and

29        cost-effectiveness  indicators,  and  external benchmarks
30        for State agencies and programs.
31        The Bureau shall provide the information  developed  from
32    these performance management practices to the Comptroller and
33    cooperate   with   the   Comptroller  in  the  reporting  and

 4    evaluated in accordance  with  these  performance  management
 5    practices.
