Short description: 
BRICK INDUSTRY CHECK-OFF                                                   

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the Brick Education and Research Act. Creates an Illinois      
   Brick Education and Research Council.  The Council shall consist of 11      
   members and shall develop programs to enhance  consumer  and  employee      
   safety  and  training, to provide for research and development, and to      
   inform and educate the public about safety and other issues associated      
   with the use of brick.   Provides  for  assessments  on  brick  to  be      
   collected  from  producers  and  forwarded to the Council on a monthly      
   basis.  Those assessed may apply for and receive  a  refund  from  the      
   Council  in  the amount of the assessment.  No assessment funds may be      
   used for lobbying.  The price of brick shall be determined  by  market      
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Commerce and Community Affairs)           
          A reasonable estimate of the fiscal impact of HB 4054 on the         
          Department cannot be made at this time because the amount of         
          funding generated by brick assessments and the complexity of         
          the Council's budget requests are currently unknown.
