    AN ACT concerning State government.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Capital Development Board Act is amended by
changing Section 10.04 as follows:
    (20 ILCS 3105/10.04)  (from Ch. 127, par. 780.04)
    Sec. 10.04. Construction and repair of buildings; green
    (a) To construct and repair, or contract for and supervise
the construction and repair of, buildings under the control of
or for the use of any State agency, as authorized by the
General Assembly. To the maximum extent feasible, any
construction or repair work shall utilize the best available
technologies for minimizing building energy costs as
determined through consultation with the Department of
Commerce and Economic Opportunity Community Affairs.
    (b) On and after the effective date of this amendatory Act
of the 94th General Assembly, the Board shall initiate a series
of training workshops across the State to increase awareness
and understanding of green building techniques and green
building rating systems. The workshops shall be designed for
relevant State agency staff, construction industry personnel,
and other interested parties.
    The Board shall identify no less than 3 construction
projects to serve as case studies for achieving certification
using nationally recognized and accepted green building
guidelines, standards, or systems approved by the State.
Consideration shall be given for a variety of representative
building types in different geographic regions of the State to
provide additional information and data related to the green
building design and construction process. The Board shall
report its findings to the General Assembly following the
completion of the case study projects and in no case later than
December 31, 2008.
    The Board shall establish a Green Building Advisory
Committee to assist the Board in determining guidelines for
which State construction and major renovation projects should
be developed to green building standards. The guidelines should
take into account the size and type of buildings, financing
considerations, and other appropriate criteria. The guidelines
must take effect within 3 years after the effective date of
this amendatory Act of the 94th General Assembly and are
subject to Board approval or adoption. In addition to using a
green building rating system in the building design process,
the Committee shall consider the feasibility of requiring
certain State construction projects to be certified using a
green building rating system.
    This subsection (b) of this Section is repealed on January
1, 2009.
