 Fiscal Note (Illinois State Board of Education)
 Senate Bill 475 creates a personnel mandate for school districts in that it requires additional insurance coverage for employees. The State Mandates Act is not amended so local school districts would not have to comply unless the state reimbursed them. If the cost is less than $1,000 per district or less than $50,000 across all school districts, schools would have to comply and bear the cost. It is unclear how much such additional coverage may cost. The Department of Insurance or the Department of Central Management Services, which operates the state and several local government self insurance pools, may be able to provide an estimate.
