    AN ACT concerning State government.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The State Salary and Annuity Withholding Act is
amended by changing Section 4 as follows:
 
    (5 ILCS 365/4)  (from Ch. 127, par. 354)
    Sec. 4. Authorization of withholding. An employee or
annuitant may authorize the withholding of a portion of his
salary, wages, or annuity for any one or more of the following
purposes:
    (1) for purchase of United States Savings Bonds;
    (2) for payment of premiums on life or accident and health
insurance as defined in Section 4 of the "Illinois Insurance
Code", approved June 29, 1937, as amended, and for payment of
premiums on policies of automobile insurance as defined in
Section 143.13 of the "Illinois Insurance Code", as amended,
and the personal multiperil coverages commonly known as
homeowner's insurance. However, no portion of salaries, wages
or annuities may be withheld to pay premiums on automobile,
homeowner's, life or accident and health insurance policies
issued by any one insurance company or insurance service
company unless a minimum of 100 employees or annuitants insured
by that company authorize the withholding by an Office within 6
months after such withholding begins. If such minimum is not
satisfied the Office may discontinue withholding for such
company. For any insurance company or insurance service company
which has not previously had withholding, the Office may allow
withholding for premiums, where less than 100 policies have
been written, to cover a probationary period. An insurance
company which has discontinued withholding may reinstate it
upon presentation of facts indicating new management or
re-organization satisfactory to the Office;
    (3) for payment to any labor organization designated by the
employee;
    (4) for payment of dues to any association the membership
of which consists of State employees and former State
employees;

employees are within the field of membership as a result of
their employment;
    (6) for payment to or for the benefit of an institution of
higher education by an employee of that institution;
    (7) for payment of parking fees at the underground facility
located south of the William G. Stratton State Office Building

Urbana-Champaign campus of the University of Illinois;
    (8) for voluntary payment to the State of Illinois of
amounts then due and payable to the State;
    (9) for investment purchases made as a participant in
College Savings Programs established pursuant to Section
30-15.8a of the School Code;
    (10) for voluntary payment to the Illinois Department of
Revenue of amounts due or to become due under the Illinois
Income Tax Act;
    (11) for payment of optional contributions to a retirement
system subject to the provisions of the Illinois Pension Code;
    (12) for contributions to organizations found qualified by
the State Comptroller under the requirements set forth in the
Voluntary Payroll Deductions Act of 1983; .
    (13) for payment of fringe benefit contributions to
employee benefit trust funds (whether such employee benefit
trust funds are governed by the Employee Retirement Income
Security Act of 1974, as amended, 29 U.S.C. 1001 et seq. or
not) for State contractual employees hired through labor
organizations and working pursuant to a signed agreement
between a labor organization and a State agency, whether
subject to the Illinois Prevailing Wage Act or not; this item
(13) is not intended to limit employee benefit trust funds and
the contributions to be made thereto to be limited to those
which are encompassed for purposes of computing the prevailing
wage in any particular locale, but rather such employee benefit
trusts are intended to include contributions to be made to such
funds that are intended to assist in training, building and
maintenance, industry advancement, and the like, including but
not limited to those benefit trust funds such as pension and
welfare that are normally computed in the prevailing wage rates
and which otherwise would be subject to contribution
obligations by private employers that are signatory to
agreements with labor organizations.
