 2        Be it enacted by the People of  the  State  of  Illinois,
 3    represented in the General Assembly:

 4        Section  5.  The Military Leave of Absence Act is amended
 5    by changing Section 1 as follows:

 6        (5 ILCS 325/1) (from Ch. 129, par. 501)
 7        Sec. 1.  Leave  of  absence  for  military  service.  Any
 8    full-time  employee  of  the State of Illinois, other than an
 9    independent contractor,  who  is  a  member  of  any  reserve
10    component of the United States Armed Forces or of any reserve
11    component  of  the  Illinois  State Militia, shall be granted
12    leave from State employment for any period actively spent  in
13    such military service, including:
14        (1)  basic training;
15        (2)  special  or advanced training, whether or not within
16    the State, and whether or not voluntary; and
17        (3)  annual training.
18        During such leaves, the employee's  seniority  and  other
19    benefits shall continue to accrue.
20        During  leaves  for  annual  training, the employee shall
21    continue to receive  his  regular  compensation  as  a  State
22    employee.  During leaves for basic training and up to 60 days
23    of  special  or  advanced  training,   if   such   employee's
24    compensation   for  military  activities  is  less  than  his
25    compensation as  a  State  employee,  he  shall  receive  his
26    regular  compensation as a State employee minus the amount of
27    his base pay for military activities.
