820 ILCS 405/2103.1from Ch. 48, par. 663.1

Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Unemployment Insurance Act. Provides that all remaining funds in the Employment Security Administrative Fund shall be transferred to the clearing account on July 1, 2005 or as soon thereafter as is reasonably practicable, and, upon the transfer of the funds, the Employment Security Administrative Fund is abolished. Provides that the provisions establishing the Employment Security Administrative Fund are repealed on January 1, 2006. Effective July 1, 2005.

 Fiscal Note (Department of Employment Security)
 SB 1770 eliminates the Employment Security Administrative Fund, which was established in 1990 from a one-time revenue source and used for initiatives designed to decrease and prevent unemployment. At one point the fund held over $11 million, but it has now been virtually exhausted and there are no prospects of replenishing it. The only fiscal impact of the bill is that the remaining balance in ESAF ($3,268.05 as of May 5, 2005) would be transferred to the Unemployment Trust Fund, which is dedicated to paying unemployment benefits to jobless workers.
