Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Disabled Persons Rehabilitation Act. Provides that the Department of Human Services shall establish and maintain a publicly accessible online registry of all homemakers who are currently employed through a Community Care Program homemaker provider. Sets forth the requirements for the registry, including: (i) the name of the homemaker, (ii) his or her current address, (iii) the date and location of the pre-service training completed by the individual, (iv) the date of the individual's last criminal background check, and (v) the date and location of all in-service training completed by the individual. Provides that the Department shall update this registry on a quarterly basis. Effective January 1, 2006.
| ||Fiscal Note (Department on Aging)|
| ||Assuming the legislation is amended to amend the Illinois Act on the Aging to require the Ill. Department on Aging (IDoA) to establish and maintain a homemaker registry, the IDoA estimates the cost of this registry at approximately $400,000, of which $275,000 are one-time expenses. This cost reflects a one-time $250,000 contract for a consultant to establish the web-based registry, $25,000 for a server, and approximately $125,000 for two staff persons to maintain the registry as well as to monitor the required informational elements (e.g., date and location of homemaker training).|
