    AN ACT concerning finance.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The State Finance Act is amended by changing
Section 8h as follows:
    (30 ILCS 105/8h)
    Sec. 8h. Transfers to General Revenue Fund.
    (a) Except as provided in subsection (b), notwithstanding
any other State law to the contrary, the Governor may, through
June 30, 2007, from time to time direct the State Treasurer and
Comptroller to transfer a specified sum from any fund held by
the State Treasurer to the General Revenue Fund in order to
help defray the State's operating costs for the fiscal year.
The total transfer under this Section from any fund in any
fiscal year shall not exceed the lesser of (i) 8% of the
revenues to be deposited into the fund during that fiscal year
or (ii) an amount that leaves a remaining fund balance of 25%
of the July 1 fund balance of that fiscal year. In fiscal year
2005 only, prior to calculating the July 1, 2004 final
balances, the Governor may calculate and direct the State
Treasurer with the Comptroller to transfer additional amounts
determined by applying the formula authorized in Public Act
93-839 to the funds balances on July 1, 2003. No transfer may
be made from a fund under this Section that would have the
effect of reducing the available balance in the fund to an
amount less than the amount remaining unexpended and unreserved
from the total appropriation from that fund estimated to be
expended for that fiscal year. This Section does not apply to
any funds that are restricted by federal law to a specific use,
to any funds in the Motor Fuel Tax Fund, the Hospital Provider
Fund, the Medicaid Provider Relief Fund, the Teacher Health
Insurance Security Fund, or the Reviewing Court Alternative
Dispute Resolution Fund, or to any funds to which subsection
(f) of Section 20-40 of the Nursing and Advanced Practice
Nursing Act applies. Notwithstanding any other provision of
this Section, for fiscal year 2004, the total transfer under
this Section from the Road Fund or the State Construction
Account Fund shall not exceed the lesser of (i) 5% of the
revenues to be deposited into the fund during that fiscal year
or (ii) 25% of the beginning balance in the fund. For fiscal
year 2005 through fiscal year 2007, no amounts may be
transferred under this Section from the Road Fund, the State
Construction Account Fund, the Criminal Justice Information
Systems Trust Fund, the Wireless Service Emergency Fund, or the
Mandatory Arbitration Fund.
    In determining the available balance in a fund, the
Governor may include receipts, transfers into the fund, and
other resources anticipated to be available in the fund in that
fiscal year.
    The State Treasurer and Comptroller shall transfer the
amounts designated under this Section as soon as may be
practicable after receiving the direction to transfer from the
    (b) This Section does not apply to any fund established
under the Community Senior Services and Resources Act.
