Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Environmental Protection Act.  Requires the Agency  to      
   propose  rules  to  the  Board concerning the water quality impact for      
   facility planning area enlargements.  Effective immediately.                
          FISCAL NOTE (Environmental Protection Agency)                        
          The degree of effort on the part of the review authority and         
          the participants as well as the cost of compliance, research,        
          and plan development are uncertain at this point. EPA will be        
          required to write and pursue Board rules under HB 604. Current       
          expenditures for areawide agencies are provided through federal      
          funds and set aside for FPA activities as currently prescribed.      
          Upon passage of HB 604, additional appropriations would need to      
          be appropriated to these areawide agencies through the IEPA.         
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.

          415 ILCS 5/12.5 new                                                  
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          New Act                                                              
        Creates the Facility  Planning  Area  Rules  Act.   Requires  the      
   Illinois   Environmental   Protection  Agency  to  propose  rules  and      
   procedures for facility planning area  amendments.   Gives  guidelines      
   for the proposed rules and procedures.  Effective immediately.              
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 2.                                                 
        Changes  the  Agency's  consideration  of  local   and   regional      
   comprehensive  plans  to  consideration of local, county, and regional      
   land use plans. Repeals  the  Facility  Planning  Area  Rules  Act  on      
   January 1, 2007.                                                            
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Environmental Protection Agency)                
          The Illinois EPA estimates that the enactment of HB 604 will         
          require approximately $30,000 in FY02 to cover costs associated      
          with rule making. In addition, the Agency estimates that the         
          workload associated with FPA amendment reviews will increase by      
          approximately 50 percent. In FY03, the Agency will need one          
          additional headcount, at a cost of approximately $60,000. This       
          position is necessary to perform outreach activities and to          
          begin implementation of the adopted rules. In FY04, the Agency       
          will require a second headcount at a cost of approximately           
          $60,000 to assist with the increased workload associated with        
          additional reviews of local ordinances, regional/county/city         
          plans, land use ordinances. Also in FY04, the Agency antici-         
          pates that the three planning commissions that conduct the           
          primary FPA reviews will realize an increase in workload and         
          may require additional funding to perform the expanded reviews.      
          The Agency also anticipates increased legal costs associated         
          with appeals.                                                        
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
        Deletes everything but the short title.
