Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the State Commemorative Dates Act. Designates President Barack Obama's date of birth, August 4, as a legal holiday on which to hold appropriate exercises in commemoration of him. Includes that when the day falls on a Sunday, the following Monday shall be held and considered the holiday. Amends the Election Code, the Illinois Procurement Code, the School Code, and the Promissory Note and Bank Holiday Act to include Barack Obama's birthday as a holiday. Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note (Office of Management and Budget)
 HB4654, as introduced, would have a fiscal impact to the State of approximately $3.2 million in personnel costs to state employees for holiday pay. The State would also lose the value of nearly $16 million in productivity from State workers having a paid non-working holiday.
