 2        Be it enacted by the People of  the  State  of  Illinois,

 4        Section  5.  The State Finance Act is amended by changing
 5    Section 12-2 as follows:

 6        (30 ILCS 105/12-2) (from Ch. 127, par. 148-2)
 7        Sec. 12-2. (a) The chairmen of the travel control  boards
 8    established  by  Section  12-1,  or  their  designees,  shall
 9    together  comprise the Travel Regulation Council.  The Travel
10    Regulation Council  shall  be  chaired  by  the  Director  of
11    Central  Management Services, who shall be a nonvoting member
12    of the Council, unless he is otherwise qualified to  vote  by
13    virtue  of  being  the designee of a voting member.  No later
14    than March 1, 1986, and at least biennially  thereafter,  the
15    Council    shall   adopt   State   Travel   Regulations   and
16    Reimbursement  Rates  which  shall  be  applicable   to   all
17    personnel  subject  to the jurisdiction of the travel control
18    boards established by Section 12-1.  An affirmative vote of a
19    majority of the members of the Council shall be  required  to
20    adopt  regulations  and  reimbursement rates.  If the Council
21    fails to adopt regulations by March  1  of  any  odd-numbered
22    year, the Director of Central Management Services shall adopt
23    emergency regulations and reimbursement rates pursuant to the
24    Illinois Administrative Procedure Act.
25        (b)  Mileage for automobile travel shall be reimbursed at
26    the  allowance  rate  in effect under regulations promulgated
27    pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 5707(b)(2). However, in  the  event  the
28    rate  set under federal regulations changes during the course
29    of the State's fiscal year, the effective  date  of  the  new
30    rate  shall be the July 1 immediately following the change in
31    the federal rate.

 1        (c)  Rates  for  reimbursement  of  expenses  other  than
 2    mileage shall  not  exceed  the  actual  cost  of  travel  as
 3    determined by the United States Internal Revenue Service.
 4        (d)  Reimbursements  to  travelers shall be made pursuant
 5    to the rates and regulations  applicable  to  the  respective
 6    State agency as of the effective date of this amendatory Act,
 7    until  the  State  Travel Regulations and Reimbursement Rates
 8    established by this Section are adopted and effective.
 9        (e)  Lodging in Cook County, Illinois and the District of
10    Columbia shall be reimbursed at the maximum lodging  rate  in
11    effect  under  regulations  promulgated  pursuant to 5 U.S.C.

14    the per diem locality of the District of Columbia, as defined
15    by the regulations in effect promulgated pursuant to 5 U.S.C.
16    5701-5709.   Individual  travel  control  boards  may  set  a
17    lodging reimbursement rate more restrictive than the rate set
18    forth in the federal regulations.
