Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Department of Central Management Services Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois. Provides that each State building constructed, acquired, or of which more than 50% of the façade is substantially altered shall meet specified standards concerning bird safety. Provides requirements for the Director of Central Management Services in implementing the standards. Specifies that the provisions shall not apply to any acquisition or substantial alteration if the Director, after consideration of multiple options, determines that the use of the required building materials and design features would result in a significant additional cost for the project. Exempts specified buildings from the requirements.

Provides that the requirements shall not apply to any project in the design or construction phase as of the effective date of the provisions.
