Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Collective Bargaining Freedom Act. Provides that it is the policy of the State that employers, employees, and their labor organizations are free to bargain collectively. Provides that the authority to enact laws or rules that restrict the use of union security agreements between an employer and a labor organization vests exclusively with the General Assembly. Prohibits local governments from enforcing any such law or rule. Defines terms. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Corrects references and makes grammatical and stylistic corrections.

 Pension Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 This bill will not impact any public pension fund or retirement system in Illinois.

 Balanced Budget Note (Office of Management and Budget)
 The Balanced Budget Note Act does not apply to this bill as it is not a supplemental appropriation that increases or decreases appropriations. Under the Act, a balanced budget note must be prepared only for bills that change a general funds appropriation for the fiscal year in which the new bill is enacted.

 State Debt Impact Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 This bill would not change the amount of authorization for any type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and, therefore, would not affect the level of State indebtedness.

 Correctional Note (Dept of Corrections)
 This bill has no fiscal or population impact on the Department of Corrections.

 Judicial Note (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 This bill would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.

 Housing Affordability Impact Note (Housing Development Authority)
 This bill will have no effect on the cost of constructing, purchasing, owning, or selling a single-family residence.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Labor)
 Passage of this legislation would hinder population and economic growth in Illinois. This results in lost economic activity and thus lost tax revenues for the State. Implementation of this legislation would ensure that Illinois' population growth will continue to fall behind out bordering states. Those states that border Illinois have seen population growth of 2.1% over the last six years while Illinois has grown at 0.2% during that period. Illinois is on the verge of falling into net population loss as Chicago lost 13,572 people in 2015 and 2016. The lost population for 2016 was 8,638. In comparison, states with more competitive business climates have seen population growth of 6.3% during those same six years. Illinois' unemployment rate of 4.7% is well above Iowa (3.1%), Wisconsin ( 3.2%}, Indiana (3.7%), and Missouri (3.9%). The hindrance of growth caused by this legislation will cost the State approximately $118,000,000 next year and a compounding amount each year the State's population fails to grow at a rate equivalent to our border states. The per capita State tax rate in Illinois is approximately $3,030.00 and if our population were to grow at the same rate as our neighboring states Illinois would increase its population by at least 39,000 people in the next year.

 Home Rule Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does pre-empt home rule authority.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not create a State mandate.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes the immediate effective date.
