7 jurisdiction of the Governor has any authority to make or
8 promulgate rules to implement or enforce the provisions of this
9 Act. If, however, the Governor believes that rules are
10 necessary to implement or enforce the provisions of this Act,
11 the Governor may suggest rules to the General Assembly by
12 filing them with the Clerk of the House and Secretary of the
13 Senate and by requesting that the General Assembly authorize
14 such rulemaking by law, enact those suggested rules into law,
15 or take any other appropriate action in the General Assembly's
16 discretion. Nothing contained in this Act shall be interpreted
17 to grant rulemaking authority under any other Illinois statute
