Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Guaranteed Job  Opportunity  Act.    Provides      
   that the Secretary of Human Services (now the Director of Labor) shall      
   administer  the  Act.   Deletes  the  provisions establishing district      
   executive councils,  calculating  the  allocation  of  funds  to  each      
   district,  and  granting  specific  administrative authority under the      
   Act.  Provides that grants may  be  funded  from  State,  as  well  as      
   federal  sources.   Provides that the Department of Human Services may      
   accept applications and issue grants for  the  operation  of  projects      
   subject  to  the  availability  of  State  or federal funds and at the      
   discretion of the Secretary.  Deletes the provisions  requiring  basic      
   reading  and  writing  testing, counseling, and instruction.  Provides      
   that a participant in a job project who has not completed high  school      
   shall  enroll in an education program and if necessary shall enroll in      
   an English as a Second Language program.  Deletes provisions requiring      
   that  participants  receive  employment  benefits.   Changes   certain      
   eligibility  requirements  and  wage standards for participants in the      
   job projects. Makes other changes.  Effective July 1, 2001.                 
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Human Services)                           
          Since this legislation is subject to specific appropriation,         
          the Department cannot determine the fiscal impact of HB 480.
