Short description: 
NURSING-DEDICATED PROF FUND                                                

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Nursing and  Advanced  Practice  Nursing  Act.   Makes      
   technical  changes  to a Section concerning social security numbers on      
   license applications.                                                       
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
          Deletes reference to:                                                
          225 ILCS 65/5-22                                                     
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          225 ILCS 65/20-40                                                    
        Replaces  everything  after  the  enacting  clause.   Amends  the      
   Nursing and Advanced Practice Nursing Act.  Provides that,    for  the      
   fiscal   year  beginning  July  1,  2001  and  for  each  fiscal  year      
   thereafter, $750,000  from  the  moneys  deposited  in  the    Nursing      
   Dedicated and Professional Fund shall be set aside and appropriated to      
   the  Department  of Public Health for nursing  scholarships.  Provides      
   that representatives of  the  Department  and  the  Nursing  Education      
   Scholarship Program Advisory  Council will review this requirement and      
   the scholarship awards.  Effective July 1, 2001.                            
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Professional Regulation)                  
          The Department expects SB 751 to reduce the Nursing Dedicated        
          and Professional Fund by approximately $435,000 per year. The        
          balance in the Fund at the end of March 2001 was $11,959,000.        
          SB 751 would not have any short-term impact on the Fund balance      
          but might over the long-term. However, a provision in the bill       
          would require review of the program and funding every 2 years,       
          which should reduce or eliminate any long-term impact.
