Amends the State Prompt Payment Act and the Court of Claims Act. Provides that, in directing payment of a claim that is based on a vendor's bill or invoice for goods or services furnished to the State, the Court of Claims must direct the Comptroller to add an interest penalty. An interest penalty of 1% of the amount of the award shall be added for each month or fraction thereof after the sixtieth day after the receipt of the vendor's proper bill or invoice, until final payment is made. Provides that the interest penalty shall be added regardless of the amount of time between the receipt of the vendor's proper bill or invoice and the final payment because of the appropriation process, the consideration of the matter by the Court, or any other reason. Makes other changes conforming the State Prompt Payment Act to the Court of Claims Act. Effective immediately.
