8     (d) Notwithstanding any other rulemaking authority that

13 however, the Governor believes that rules are necessary to
14 implement or enforce the provisions of this amendatory Act of
15 the 95th General Assembly, the Governor may suggest rules to
16 the General Assembly by filing them with the Clerk of the House
17 and the Secretary of the Senate and by requesting that the
18 General Assembly authorize such rulemaking by law, enact those
19 suggested rules into law, or take any other appropriate action
20 in the General Assembly's discretion. Nothing contained in this
21 amendatory Act of the 95th General Assembly shall be
22 interpreted to grant rulemaking authority under any other
23 Illinois statute where such authority is not otherwise
24 explicitly given. For the purposes of this Section, "rules" is
25 given the meaning contained in Section 1-70 of the Illinois
26 Administrative Procedure Act, and "agency" and "agency head"
