Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Energy Assistance Act. Provides that no later than August 1 of each year, the Director of Revenue shall calculate the total amount of tax paid pursuant to the Gas Revenue Tax Act by persons eligible to receive assistance from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program during the 12-month period ending the previous June 30 and the total amount of Energy Assistance Charges paid by such persons during that same period. Provides that no later than September 1 of each year, the Director of Revenue shall cause an amount equal to the amount calculated under the foregoing provision in that year to be transferred from GRF to the Supplemental Low-Income Energy Assistance Fund.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Energy Assistance Act. Provides that each year, the Director of Public Aid shall determine the percentage of residential gas utility customers enrolled in the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program for the 12 months ending the previous June 30. Provides that no later than September 15 of each year, the Director of Public Aid shall certify to the Treasurer of the State of Illinois the amount of money equaling the proportion of residential taxes paid by regulated gas utilities pursuant to the Gas Revenue Tax Act and the Gas Use Tax Act for households that received assistance from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program during the 12 months ending the previous June 30. Provides that the Treasurer shall transfer 50% of that amount of money into the Supplemental Low Income Energy Assistance Fund by September 30.

 Fiscal Note (Illinois Department of Revenue)
 The average Gas Revenue Tax payment per customer is approximately $30.00 per year and the average energy assistance charge per customer is approximately $4.80 per year. There are approximately 316,000 LIHEAP recipients. Therefore, the total amount of Gas Revenue Tax payments and energy assistance charges paid by LIHEAP recipients is estimated to be approximately $10,996,800 per year. House Bill 466 would require that amount to be transferred each year from the General Revenue Fund to the Supplemental Low-Income Energy Assistance Fund. However, the Department of Revenue does not know who receives LIHEAP payments or the actual amount of Gas Revenue Payments and energy assistance charges that are made by those LIHEAP recipients. The Department of Revenue would incur undetermined but significant administrative costs to determine those amounts.

Amends the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois; authorizes the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity to establish a pilot program to ensure the availability and affordability of electric service to businesses that are considering closing, downsizing, or relocating outside of Illinois or businesses that wish to locate to Illinois; provides that, under this pilot program, an approved business shall receive an income tax credit equal to a certified amount of that business's energy expenses, not to exceed $1,000,000 in any one year. Amends the Illinois Income Tax Act to create the income tax credit for participating businesses under the pilot program. Amends the Use Tax Act, the Service Use Tax Act, the Service Occupation Tax Act, and the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act; provides that, beginning January 1, 2006 and through January 31, 2006, the tax with respect to energy-efficient products is imposed under these Acts at the rate of 1.25% (eliminating the State's portion of the tax); also amends the State Finance Act to adjust the distribution with respect to this tax. Amends the Energy Assistance Act.

Provides that the Treasurer shall transfer 100% of that amount of money into the Supplemental Low Income Energy Assistance Fund by January 31, 2006. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 4
Provides that the use and occupation taxes on energy-efficient products is imposed, from January 1, 2006 through January 31, 2006, at a rate of 1% (instead of 1.25%), and that the lower rate applies to those energy-efficient products that are designed for use in residential structures (instead of products for use in residential structures).
