House Floor Amendment No. 3
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the contents of the bill as amended by House Amendment No. 1, with the following changes. Provides that the prohibition applies only to mandates enacted into law or adopted by rule after the effective date of the amendatory Act. Replaces language exempting specific programs from the prohibition on unfunded mandates with language providing that the prohibition on unfunded mandates does not apply to new mandates from the Race to the Top Grant through the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 on school districts designated as being in the lowest performing 5% of schools within the Race to the Top Application. Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 4

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Provides that no public school district or private school is obligated to comply with (i) any mandate in the School Code enacted after the effective date of the amendatory Act or (2) any regulatory mandate promulgated by the State Board of Education and adopted by rule after the effective date of the amendatory Act other than those promulgated with respect to these provisions or statutes already enacted on or before the effective date of the amendatory Act, unless a separate appropriation has been enacted into law providing full funding for the mandate for the school year during which the mandate is required (with exceptions). If the amount appropriated to fund a described mandate does not fully fund the mandated activity, then the school district or private school may choose to discontinue or modify the mandated activity to ensure that the costs of compliance do not exceed the funding received. Provides that before discontinuing or modifying the mandate, a school district shall petition its regional superintendent of schools on or before February 15 of each year to request to be exempt from implementing the mandate in a school or schools in the next school year. Sets forth provisions concerning what the petition must contain, review of the petition and a public hearing, granting an exemption, State Board of Education notification, and appealing the regional superintendent's decision. Provides for a list of discontinued or modified mandated activities. Provides that in any instances in which these provisions conflict with the State Mandates Act, the State Mandates Act shall prevail. Effective immediately.
