Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the State Officials and Employees Ethics Act. With respect to an executive branch State employee who is the subject of an Executive Inspector General's investigation and whose agency head or ultimate jurisdictional authority agrees with the Inspector General as to disciplinary action against the employee, establishes procedures for providing a redacted version of the Inspector General's summary investigation report to the Executive Ethics Commission, to the employee, and to the public, under certain circumstances.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 2
Removes reprimand from the disciplinary actions the Executive Inspector General may recommend. Provides that a redacted summary investigation report may not contain names of or identifying information about the employing State agency or persons. Provides that a redacted report may contain only factual information, the law allegedly violated (if among a specified list), the background or history of the alleged violation, and any recommended discipline.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
5 ILCS 430/5-10
5 ILCS 430/20-90
5 ILCS 430/20-95
5 ILCS 430/50-5

Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Amends the State Officials and Employees Ethics Act. Requires that within 10 days after beginning an investigation, an Executive Inspector General must provide the Executive Ethics Commission with a summary of the allegations, the reasons for investigating, the investigation's unique tracking number, and any other information the Commission may request. After the investigation, if the Executive Inspector General is not going to seek leave to file a petition for complaint, the Executive Inspector General must provide the Commission with a copy of the summary report and a report of disciplinary action. At the conclusion of the period for seeking leave to file a petition for complaint, if leave has not been sought, the Executive Inspector General must provide the Commission with the summary report of the investigation. Requires that the reports required by the bill are confidential and exempt from the Freedom of Information Act. Makes intentional violation of their confidentiality a Class A misdemeanor. Requires that an Executive Inspector General's summary report of an investigation include specific recommendations for corrective or disciplinary action (now, include the corrective or disciplinary action). Includes suspension as a corrective or disciplinary action. With respect to executive branch ethics training, requires that each ultimate jurisdictional authority annually report to the Executive Ethics Commission and requires that the Executive Ethics Commission (now, each Executive Inspector General) set the training standards and determine position categories. Makes the bill's changes (other than those concerning ethics training and those requiring confidentiality of reports, exempting reports from the Freedom of Information Act, and penalizing confidentiality violations) effective only for 3 years after the bill takes effect.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
With respect to those portions of the bill effective only for 3 years after the bill's effective date, changes the references to "with respect to complaints received by an Executive Inspector General prior to July 1, 2010".
