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

    Section  5.  The Liquor Control Act of 1934 is amended by
changing Section 12-4 as follows:

    (235 ILCS 5/12-4)
    Sec. 12-4. Grape and Wine Resources Fund.  Beginning July
1, 1999 and ending June 30, 2006 2004, on the  first  day  of
each  State  fiscal  year,  or  as  soon thereafter as may be
practical, the State Comptroller shall transfer  the  sum  of
$500,000  from the General Revenue Fund to the Grape and Wine
Resources Fund, which is hereby continued as a  special  fund
in  the  State  Treasury.   By  January  1,  2006  2004,  the
Department of Commerce and Community Affairs shall review the
activities  of the Council and report to the General Assembly
and the Governor its recommendation of  whether  or  not  the
funding under this Section should be continued.
    The  Grape  and Wine Resources Fund shall be administered
by the Department of Commerce and  Community  Affairs,  which
shall  serve as the lead administrative agency for allocation
and  auditing  of  funds  as  well  as   monitoring   program
implementation.  The Department shall make an annual grant of
moneys  from  the Fund to the Council, which shall be used to
pay for the Council's operations and expenses.  These  moneys
shall  be  used  by  the  Council  to  achieve  the Council's
objectives and  shall  not  be  used  for  any  political  or
legislative  purpose.  Money remaining in the Fund at the end
of the fiscal year shall remain in the Fund  for  use  during
the  following year and shall not be transferred to any other
State fund.
