LEARNING WITH THE ARTS                                                     

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the Illinois Learning with the Arts Act.   Provides  that      
   the  State  Board  of  Education,  Illinois Arts Council, and Board of      
   Higher Education shall enter into an  intergovernmental  agreement  in      
   accordance  with  the  Intergovernmental Cooperation Act to integrate,      
   coordinate, and maximize benefits available under other programs  that      
   promote  the  use,  understanding,  and appreciation of the visual and      
   performing arts as a part of the educational curriculum in the  public      
   schools,  from  the  pre-school level through grade 12.  Provides that      
   the emphasis of the Illinois Learning with the Arts Program  shall  be      
   upon  the  efficient  use  of resources to present a comprehensive but      
   non-duplicative array of visual and  performing  arts  programs.  Adds      
   provisions  relative  to  use under the intergovernmental agreement of      
   appropriations made to the parties  to  that  agreement  for  programs      
   that  may  be  administered in a more efficient and coordinated manner      
   under the intergovernmental agreement.  Also authorizes appropriations      
   in fiscal years  after  fiscal  year  1999  for  distribution  to  the      
   intergovernmental  agreement's governing body to administer visual and      
   performing arts programs that replace those previously administered by      
   one or  more  of  the  parties  to  the  intergovernmental  agreement.      
   Effective July 1, 1998.
