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.
