Short description: 
PURCHASING-BUY ILLINOIS                                                    

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Steel Products  Procurement  Act.  Changes  the  short      
   title to the "Domestic Products Procurement Act" and expands the scope      
   of  the  Act  to  apply  to  all purchases or leases of commodities or      
   manufactured goods by the State of  Illinois  from  2002  until  2007.      
   Provides  that, with specified exceptions, the State of Illinois shall      
   purchase or lease only  materials,  commodities,  or  goods  that  are      
   manufactured  or  supplied  by  companies  whose products consist of a      
   specified minimum level of U.S.  or  Canadian  content.    Amends  the      
   Illinois  Procurement  Code.   Requires  all goods purchased under the      
   Code to be Illinois-made goods unless the cost of Illinois-made  goods      
   exceeds  the  cost  of other goods by 10% or more.  Requires all goods      
   purchased under the Code to be U.S.-made goods unless the cost of  the      
   U.S.-made goods exceeds the cost of other goods by 10% or more.             
          STATE MANDATES NOTE (Dept. of Commerce and Community Affairs)        
          In the opinion of DCCA, HB 3618 does not create a State mandate      
          under the State Mandates Act.                                        
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Central Management Services)              
          This legislation will affect the procurements made through the       
          CMS Procurement Services Division and Bureau of Communication        
          and Computer Services. Increased CMS administrative costs ne-        
          cessary to certify the content and orgin of products, including      
          23 additional staff, would exceed $1,645,644, of which               
          $1,594,517 would be needed annually. The state agencies pur-         
          chases for products is approximately $350,000,000. This legis-       
          lation would also affect product purchases at universities and       
          of constitutional officers not estimated here. This legislation      
          could increase the spending up to 10%. So, the increased cost        
          to the State of Illinois agencies for product purchases could        
          approximate $35,000,000 annually.
