Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

(a) Definitions. As used in this Section:
"Commission" means the Budgeting for Results Commission established by this Section.
"Result area" means major organizational categories of State government as defined by the Governor.
"Outcome area" means subcategories of result areas that further define, and facilitate the measurement of the result area, as established by the Governor.
(b) Statewide prioritized goals. For fiscal year 2025 and each fiscal year thereafter, prior to the submission of the State budget, the Governor, in consultation with the Commission established under this Section, shall: (i) identify statewide result areas that are most important for each State agency of the executive branch under the jurisdiction of the Governor to achieve for the next fiscal year and (ii) identify outcome areas, which further define the statewide result areas, into which State programs and associated spending can be categorized. There must be a reasonable number of annually defined statewide result and outcome areas defining State priorities for the budget. Each result and outcome shall be further defined to facilitate success in achieving that result or outcome.
(c) Budgeting for Results Commission. On or after July 31, 2024, the Governor shall establish a commission for the purpose of advising the Governor in the implementation of performance-based budgeting in Illinois State government, setting statewide result and outcome areas, and providing oversight and guidance for comprehensive program assessments and benefit-cost analysis of State agency programs.
(1) Membership. The commission shall be composed of
voting and non-voting members appointed by the Governor. The commission shall be a well-balanced group and shall be not more than 15 and not less than 8 members. Members appointed by the Governor shall serve a three-year term, beginning and ending on July 1 of each year. Vacancies in Commission membership shall be filled in the same manner as initial appointments. Appointments to fill vacancies occurring before the expiration of a term shall be for the remainder of the term. Members shall serve until their successors are appointed.
(2) Bylaws. The commission may adopt bylaws for the
regulation of its affairs and the conduct of its business.
(3) Quorum. Total membership of the Commission
consists of the number of voting members serving on the Commission, not including any vacant positions. A quorum consists of a simple majority of total voting membership and shall be sufficient to conduct the business of the commission, unless stipulated otherwise in the bylaws of the commission. A member may submit a proxy in writing to the Commission Co-Chairs or the Commission Staff Director no later than 24 hours before a scheduled meeting, and that proxy shall count toward the quorum for that meeting only.
(4) Chairpersons. Two Co-Chairs of the commission
shall be appointed by the Governor. The Co-Chairs shall be one member of the General Assembly and one person who is not a member of the General Assembly.
(5) Meetings. The commission shall hold at least 2
in-person public meetings during each fiscal year. One meeting shall be held in the City of Chicago and one meeting shall be held in the City of Springfield.

(6) Compensation. Members shall not receive
compensation for their services.
(7) Annual report. By November 1 of each year, the
commission shall submit a report to the Governor and the General Assembly setting forth recommendations with respect to the Governor's implementation of performance-based budgeting in Illinois State government. The report shall be published on the Governor's Office of Management and Budget's website. In its report, the commission shall report on the status of comprehensive program assessments and benefit cost analysis of state agency programs conducted during the prior year.
The commission shall also review existing statutory mandates and include in its report recommendations for the repeal or modification of statutory mandates and funds or the State treasury which are out-of-date or unduly burdensome to the operations of State government.
The General Assembly may object to the commission's report by passing a joint resolution detailing the General Assembly's objections.
(d) In addition, each other constitutional officer of the executive branch, in consultation with the appropriation committees of the General Assembly, shall: (i) prioritize outcomes that are most important for his or her office to achieve for the next fiscal year and (ii) set goals to accomplish those outcomes according to the priority of the outcome. The Governor and each constitutional officer shall separately conduct performance analyses to determine which programs, strategies, and activities will best achieve those desired outcomes. The Governor shall recommend that appropriations be made to State agencies and officers for the next fiscal year based on the agreed upon result and outcome areas. Each agency and officer may develop its own strategies for meeting those goals and shall review and analyze those strategies on a regular basis. The Governor shall also implement procedures to measure annual progress toward the State's statewide results and outcomes and shall develop a statewide reporting system that collects performance data from all programs under the authority of the Governor. Those performance measures and results shall be posted on the Governor's Office of Management and Budget website.
