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
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.
