HB0908 Enrolled                               LRB9001028MWksA

    AN ACT to amend the Illinois State Collection Act of 1986
by changing Section 5.

    Be it enacted by the People of  the  State  of  Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:

    Section  5.  The Illinois State Collection Act of 1986 is
amended by changing Section 5 as follows:

    (30 ILCS 210/5) (from Ch. 15, par. 155)
    Sec. 5.  Rules; payment plans; offsets.
    (a)  State agencies shall adopt rules establishing formal
due dates for amounts owing to the State and for the referral
of  seriously  past  due  accounts  to   private   collection
agencies, unless otherwise expressly provided by law or rule.
Such  procedures  shall  be  established in accord with sound
business practices.
    (b)  Agencies  may  enter  deferred  payment  plans   for
debtors of the agency and documentation of this fact retained
by  the  agency, where the deferred payment plan is likely to
increase the net amount collected by the State.
    (c)  State agencies  may  use  the  Comptroller's  Offset
System provided in Section 10.05 of the State Comptroller Act
for  the  collection  of debts owed to the agency.  All debts
that exceed $1,000 and are more than 90 days 1 year past  due
shall  be  placed  in the Comptroller's Offset System, unless
the State agency shall have entered into a  deferred  payment
plan  or  demonstrates to the Comptroller's satisfaction that
referral for offset is not cost effective.
    (d)  State agencies  shall  develop  internal  procedures
whereby  agency  initiated  payments  to  its  debtors may be
offset without referral to the Comptroller's Offset System.
    (e)  State agencies or the Comptroller may remove  claims
from  the Comptroller's Offset System, where such claims have
been inactive for more than one year.
