1     AN ACT concerning education.
2     Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
3 represented in the General Assembly:
4     Section 5. The School Code is amended by adding Section
5 2-3.148 as follows:
6     (105 ILCS 5/2-3.148 new)
7     Sec. 2-3.148. Public Act 95-707; payment for lost interest
8 due to delay in enactment.
9     (a) It is the intent of this Section to make whole, from
10 State general revenue funds, all school districts that were
11 negatively affected by delayed General State Aid payments under
12 Section 18-8.05 of this Code due to the delayed enactment of
13 Public Act 95-707.
14     (b) For the purpose of this Section, "school district" is
15 defined as any entity that is eligible to receive General State
16 Aid under Section 18-8.05 of this Code.
17     (c) The State Board of Education shall determine the total
18 amount paid to school districts for General State Aid under
19 Section 18-8.05 of this Code for Fiscal Year 2008 until the
20 implementation of Public Act 95-707 and the amount school
21 districts should have received if Public Act 95-707 had become
22 law before the beginning of Fiscal Year 2008 for the same
23 period of time. The State Board of Education shall then compute

1 the difference between what school districts should have
2 received compared to what they received and multiply positive
3 results by 2.102%. School districts that received more funds in
4 this period of time than they were entitled to receive under
5 Public Act 95-707 for the same period of time are not eligible
6 for any funds under this Section.
7     (d) Payments under this Section must be distributed to
8 school districts for interest lost due to delayed General State
9 Aid payments under Section 18-8.05 of this Code due to the
10 delayed enactment of Public Act 95-707 and are subject to the
11 appropriation of moneys for this purpose from the General
12 Revenue Fund. If the appropriation is insufficient to meet all
13 needs under this Section, then claims under this Section must
14 be paid on a proportional basis.
15     (e) Notwithstanding any other rulemaking authority that
16 may exist, neither the Governor nor any agency or agency head
17 under the jurisdiction of the Governor has any authority to
18 make or promulgate rules to implement or enforce the provisions
19 of this amendatory Act of the 95th General Assembly. If,
20 however, the Governor believes that rules are necessary to
21 implement or enforce the provisions of this amendatory Act of
22 the 95th General Assembly, the Governor may suggest rules to
23 the General Assembly by filing them with the Clerk of the House
24 and the Secretary of the Senate and by requesting that the
25 General Assembly authorize such rulemaking by law, enact those
26 suggested rules into law, or take any other appropriate action
