Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
20 ILCS 605/605-1
Adds reference to:
20 ILCS 605/605-1020 new

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois. Provides that, on and after July 1, 2017 and prior to June 30, 2019, the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity shall administer an Entrepreneur Learner's Permit pilot program. Provides that the purpose of the program shall be to encourage and assist first-time entrepreneurs in starting new information services, biotechnology, and green technology businesses by providing reimbursements to those entrepreneurs for any State filing, permitting, or licensing fees associated with the formation of such a business in the State. Provides that the aggregate amount of all reimbursements provided by the Department pursuant to this Section shall not exceed $500,000 in any State fiscal year.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the engrossed bill with changes. Provides that the program is subject to appropriation. Provides that the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity is required to administer the program beginning on July 1 of the first fiscal year for which an appropriation of State moneys is made for that purpose and continuing for the next 2 immediately succeeding fiscal years (instead of on and after July 1, 2017 and prior to June 30, 2019). Provides that applicants may not apply for participation in the program more than 3 times. Provides that the purpose of the program is to encourage and assist beginning entrepreneurs (instead of first-time business owners). Effective July 1, 2017.

Governor Amendatory Veto Message
Recommends providing that the purpose of the Entrepreneur Learner's Permit pilot program is to encourage and assist beginning entrepreneurs in starting new businesses (rather than in starting new information services, biotechnology, and green technology businesses) by providing reimbursements to those entrepreneurs for any State filing, permitting, or licensing fees associated with the formation of such a business in the State. Removes a provision limiting the aggregate amount of all reimbursements provided by the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity under the program to $500,000 in any State fiscal year.
