Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code, the Illinois Procurement Code, and the State Property Control Act. Requires the State Board of Elections to develop and maintain on its website a searchable database, derived from political committees' finance reports, of contributors to candidates for and holders of the offices of Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, State Comptroller, and State Treasurer. Prohibits an executive branch State agency from executing a lease with a business entity if the business entity or any of its affiliates has made any campaign contribution of $150 to the officeholder responsible for awarding the lease during the 24 months before the general election at which that officeholder was first elected or re-elected to his or her current office and the officeholder's entire term. Requires the business entity to disclose its affiliates and to certify that no violating contributions have been made. Requires the State agency to check the names of the business entity and its affiliates against the State Board of Elections' contributor database. Makes violations subject to voidability of the lease, voidability of other State leases, and prohibition against future leases. Applies to certain leases otherwise not subject to the Illinois Procurement Code. Effective immediately.
