Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Toll Highway Act. Provides that the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority (the Authority) has the power to employ and discharge, subject to (rather than without regard to) the requirements of any civil service or personnel Act. Creates the Office of the Toll Highway Inspector General under the direction and supervision of the Toll Highway Inspector General (Inspector General) as a fully independent office with separate appropriations. Provides that the Governor shall appoint the Inspector General, and provides for appointment procedures and the minimum qualifications for the Inspector General. Contains provisions concerning the term, filling vacancies, compensation, ethics, and removal of the Inspector General. Provides that the Inspector General shall have jurisdiction over the Authority and all officers and employees of, and vendors and others doing business with, State agencies within the jurisdiction of the Authority. Provides that subject to a person's privilege against self-incrimination, any person who fails to appear in response to a subpoena, answer any question, or produce any books or papers pertinent to an investigation or who knowingly gives false testimony in relation to an investigation by the Inspector General is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor. Provides that the annual budget for the Inspector General shall be set to 0.5% of the Authority's total revenue for the immediately preceding fiscal year.

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Toll Highway Act. Provides that the Governor shall, with the advice and consent of the Senate by three-fifths of the elected members concurring by record vote, appoint a Toll Highway Inspector General for a 5-year term for the purpose of detection, deterrence, and prevention of fraud, corruption, and mismanagement in the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority. Contains provisions concerning appointment, terms, vacancies, removal, qualifications, jurisdiction, duties, rulemaking authority, budget, and reporting requirements of the Toll Highway Inspector General.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 3
Adds a provision to the introduced bill, as amended, concerning the rights of employees of the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority that are subject to investigation or inquiry by the Toll Highway Inspector General or any representative or agent of the Toll Highway Inspector General.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides that any investigation or inquiry by the Toll Highway Inspector General or any agent or representative of the Toll Highway Inspector General must be conducted "in accordance with the rights of the employees as set forth in State and federal law and applicable judicial decisions" (rather than "with an awareness of the provisions of a collective bargaining agreement that applies to the employees of the Authority and with an awareness of the rights of the employees as set forth in State and federal law and applicable judicial decisions", as provided in the engrossed bill). Provides that nothing in this amendatory Act shall diminish the rights, privileges, or remedies of a State employee under any other federal or State law, rule, or regulation or under any collective bargaining agreement.
