General Assemblys FY 16 Spending Plan level. OSF lines, with some exemptions, are
appropriated level with the Governors FY 17 introduced budgets. Items mandated for payment
under a court order are not appropriated in these bills. As a result, in some instances, entire

ELEMENTARY & SECONDARY EDUCATION AGENCY DETAIL


State Board of Education (ISBE)

General State Aid (GSA) would receive an additional $760 million over FY 16 levels. The
additional funding would be distributed in a manner separate from the current K-12 funding
formula. Under this proposal, all school districts would receive the GSA funds they did in FY
16, including the additional $85 million loss cap. An additional $700 million would then be
distributed as an Equity Grant. The Equity Grant would be distributed based on the
proportion of the FY 16 GSA Supplemental Low-Income Grant, which each district received,
of the aggregate grant amount for FY 16. Therefore, if a school district received 1% of the
aggregate Supplemental Low-Income Grant, it would receive $5 million over FY 16 funding
levels from the Equity Grant. After the Equity Grant is distributed, an additional $60 million
would be appropriated to school districts that would not meet their FY 17 GSA claim (despite
the addition of the Equity Grant over their FY 16 funding level), which is the level of funding
the current funding formula would assume that district is owed. This additional sum would
ensure that all school districts minimally reached their FY 17 GSA claim (100% funded no
proration). Under this proposal, all school districts would see an increase in GSA funding
over FY 16 and either attain or exceed their FY 17 GSA claim.
The Early Childhood Education Block Grant would receive a $75 million increase; this is the
same increase included in the Governors FY 17 introduced budget. In 2015, Illinois was
awarded an $80 million Preschool Expansion Grant from the federal government that
requires the state to contribute $50 million in additional funds to early childhood education in
each fiscal year for 4 years. In FY 16, the block grant was increased by $25 million. An
increase of $75 million would keep the state on track with the federal requirements for the
Preschool Expansion Grant.
Mandated Categoricals (MCATs) would be held flat from FY 16 funding levels. MCATs
include funding for special education, transportation reimbursement, student meal
reimbursement, and orphanage tuition. MCAT funding was split between GRF and the Fund
for the Advancement of Education, which allows for GRF flexibility to fund increased GSA
levels while still maintaining the same funding level for the MCATs.
Bilingual Education was held flat from the FY 16 General Assembly May Spending Plan of
$63,681,200 (GRF). This amount includes $2,000,000 that was vetoed in HB 4151 which
resulted in lack of appropriation authority for bilingual teacher training in FY 16.
Student Assessments are included at the FY 16 General Assembly May Spending Plan level
of $44,600,000 (GRF). Student Assessment funding was vetoed in HB 4151, resulting in
minimal administration of the PARCC exams in high school and no state reimbursements for
college entrance exams.
The following line items were increased to be fully funded at or above ISBEs FY 17
recommended funding level: Blind and Dyslexic Education Assistance, District Consolidation
Costs, Truant Alternative and Optional Education, Regional Safe Schools, Autism Training
and Technical Assistance, and the State Charter School Commission.
District Consolidation Costs were fully funded plus an additional $246,000, intended for
Spring Garden CCSD 178 (Representative Bryant). Spring Garden CCSD 178 was created
during FY 16 and ISBE initially estimated that the district would receive $246,000 more in
District Consolidation Costs than the district actually received. Spring Garden was created
with the assumption that it would receive an additional $246,000, and the additional funding
brings ISBEs initial estimate to fruition.
Federal personal services, retirement, social security, and group health insurance line items
were eliminated from ISBEs budget. All of these line items are covered by court order.

Educational Labor Relations Board (IELRB)

IELRB received flat funding from the FY 16 General Assemblys May Spending Plan, with
the exemption of personal services, retirement, social security, and group health insurance
which were all funded via court order during FY 16.
The entirety of IELRBs FY 16 budget was vetoed in HB 4151 and the agency has been
operating with court-ordered employee salary funding.

State Charter School Commission

The State Charter School Commission receives $650,000 which represents ISBEs
recommended funding level, or a $50,000 increase over the FY 16 General Assembly May
Spending Plan; and
The entirety of the Commissions FY 16 budget was vetoed in HB 4151 and the agency has
been operating with court ordered employee salary funding.
This funding comes from charter authorization fees.

Chicago Teachers Pension Fund State Contributions

The State Contribution ($12,186,000 in GRF) for the Chicago Teachers Pension Fund is
contained within this proposal.
An additional appropriation of $100 million for the Chicago Teachers Pension Fund is
included to help offset CPS contribution to the fund for FY 17. The total state contribution to
the Chicago Teachers Pension Fund in FY 17 is $112,186,000. This is a similar concept to
an additional $50 million in state support that was provided to the fund in FY 15.

OSF is at the FY 17 agency requested levels and GRF is at an adjusted level of the FY 16
request. Historically, the Appellate Prosecutor has received 4% transferability for its
operations lines and, in lieu of that in FY 17, $68,000 is proposed for GRF.

Corrections

All GRF with the exception of the Joliet Mental Health Center and the new mental health
center is at FY 16 spending plan levels and OSF is at the FY 17 agency requested levels.
The mental health centers are appropriated at the following full agency request levels:

Joliet Mental Health Center


New mental health center (location of this center has yet to be determined)

$38,000,000
$9,012,800

GRF funding is also provided for Hardin County Work Camp at $1,000,000.

Criminal Justice Information Authority, Illinois

All GRF is at FY 16 spending plan levels and OSF is at the FY 17 requested levels. Some
GRF programs that the governor did not include in the FY 17 requested budget but are in
the FY16 spending plan have been restored in this budget at the FY 16 spending plan
levels. Those programs are:

YouthBuild
CeaseFire
Franklin County Methamphetamine Pilot Program
South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force
Bullying Prevention

$12,500,000
$4,594,300
$1,173,000
$94,000
$454,400

In the Governors proposed budget, funding for the Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Task
Force was completely eliminated. This OSF funding is restored in this bill at the FY 16 level
of $7 million. The Governors proposed budget also included decreased appropriations from
the Death Penalty Abolition Fund and this OSF funding has been restored to the FY 16
spending plan level of $10 million which is $3 million higher than the Governors proposed
level.
Illinois Power Agency

OSF-only agency is at the agencys requested level.

Judicial Inquiry Board

GRF-only agency is at FY 16 spending plan levels.

Juvenile Justice

Entire agency is being funded by court order so it is not included in this bill.

The OSF lines of this budget are presented at the FY 17 requested levels. Although the
Governor did not include any GRF funding in the FY 17 request, funding for the Latino
Family Commission has been included in this bill at the FY 16 spending plan level of
$750,000.
The Governor proposed $8,500,000 from the Public Transportation Fund for ADA
Paratransit for FY 17. In the General Assembly proposal, instead of spending from the
Public Transportation Fund, $4,569,800 is paid from GRF and $3,825,000 from the Road
Fund. Historically, this is an identical proposal to the FY 16 spending plan for Paratransit.
IDOT has 3 programs on continuing appropriation which are being funded via court order.

RTA Debt Service, which is paid out of the Public Transportation Fund, had an FY 17
request of $131,000,000.
Operating Assistance Grants to the RTA, which are also paid from the Public
Transportation Fund, had an FY 17 request of $412,000,000 which is $50,000,000 more
than what was in the May spending plan for FY 16.
Downstate Operating Assistance Grants which are paid from the Downstate Public
Transportation Fund, had an FY 17 request of $308,764,400 which is $27,560,200 more
than what it was in the May spending plan for FY 16.

introduced levels:

IL Power Agency
Southwestern Illinois Development Authority
Sports Facilities Authority
State Fire Marshal
Workers Compensation

BACK PAY
In 2011, Governor Quinn withheld negotiated pay raises for several unions, due to lack of
appropriation. The pay raises were a part of the terms of their collective bargaining agreement.
An independent arbitrator ruled the union contract had been violated, and a circuit court judge
subsequently ruled that the governors action was illegal and that the money was owed to
employees.
The judges order was stayed pending an appeal of his decision that has been filed by the
Attorney General. The Attorney Generals office has indicated that the appeal would not be
pursued if the General Assembly appropriates the money that is owed.
On March 24, 2016, the Illinois Supreme Court reversed the judgments of the appellate court
and the circuit court of Cook County and vacated the arbitration award. The Court held that the
arbitration award violates Illinois public policy, asserting that multiyear collective bargaining
agreements are subject to the appropriation power of the state, a power which may only be
exercised by the General Assembly.
This bill provides appropriations for the back pay cited above from the General Revenue Fund
to the personnel lines of various agencies as follows (each of the following totals includes both
the personal services and the social security lines):
