Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Compensation Review Act. Provides that the compensation of all officials and employees whose compensation is determined under the Act is frozen at the dollar amount in effect on the effective date of the amendatory Act, and that dollar amount shall not change without the specific authority of the General Assembly, by law. Further provides that any cost of living adjustment previously authorized under the Act is eliminated and no longer operative after the effective date of the amendatory Act. Abolishes the Compensation Review Board. Establishes the Illinois Citizens' Accountability Review Board, consisting of 12 members appointed by the Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, State Comptroller, State Treasurer, legislative leaders, and Auditor General. Requires the Board to annually adopt reports recommending State officer and appointee compensation, one for judges and State's Attorneys and one for all others (now, the Compensation Review Board biennially adopts one report for all offices and positions). In order for the recommendations to become effective in whole or reduced amounts, requires the General Assembly to approve or reduce each report by resolution (now, the General Assembly must adopt a resolution disapproving or reducing the report to prevent the recommendations from taking effect). Authorizes the Board to issue a report recommending no change, which is binding and may not be revised by the General Assembly. Amends various Acts to change references from the Compensation Review Board to the Illinois Citizens' Accountability Review Board.
