        Amends the School Code.  Allows the State Board of  Education  to      
   require  that  the collection or transmission of any document, record,

   entity doing business  with  the  agency)  be  handled  by  electronic      
   transmission or collection.  Provides that beginning July 1, 2002, all      
   payments  for  school  districts,  regional  offices of education, and      
   other providers entitled to payment under  State  Board  of  Education      
   programs must be disbursed by the Comptroller through electronic funds      
   transfer,  except  as  the  State  Board  otherwise  directs.  Removes      
   language that provides that in  every  instance  possible  (except  by      
   written  agreement  between school districts in an educational service      
   region  and  a  regional  superintendent  of  schools  directing  that      
   payments be made to the regional superintendent by  the  Comptroller),      
   funds  due  to  school districts shall be disbursed by the Comptroller      
   through direct electronic transfer  from  the  State  school  fund  as      
   directed  by  the  State  Board  of  Education.   Makes other changes.      
   Effective immediately.                                                      
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
        In the provision requiring the State Board of Education to  adopt      
   and  implement rules establishing a system for the electronic transfer      
   of funds, restores current law by requiring  the  Board  to  have  the      
   approval of the Comptroller.
